GD lawmaker hails Hitler, condemns homosexuality in interview

Golden Dawn lawmaker Ilias Panagiotaros, one of several of the neofascist party's MPs facing charges as part of a criminal probe, has hailed Adolf Hitler as "a great personality" in an interview with Australian television program 60 Minutes and has said GD would have solved all of Greece's problems if it had taken the law into its hands.

"Hitler was a great personality, as was Stalin," Panagiotaros said. "At certain points in history, someone has to do the dirty work," he said.

The MPs also lashed out against Laertis Vasileiou, a Greek-Albanian actor whose theatrical production, Corpus Christi, Panagiotaros had protested against in 2012 as "anti-Christian." The GD lawmaker called Vasileiou "a fag" and claimed that homosexuality had been recognized as a "disease" by doctors until 1997.
