Diane Francis accused of 'hate speech' over Greece comments

From the CBC web page:
"Many Greeks from across the globe are outraged over recent tweets by National Post editor-at-large and columnist, Diane Francis.
They have taken to social media, labelling her tweets about Greece as "hate speech," "racist," "condescending," "bigotry," and "unacceptable" coming from a journalist at a national newspaper. "Some are also demanding a public retraction.
Francis tweeted her comments leading up to and just after Greece's July 5th referendum, in which citizens of the debt-laden country voted to reject austerity conditions of a rescue package from its European creditors."
