Who Believes in the Big Bad Armenian Genocide?

Quoting, Obama breaks promise to call Armenian killings 'genocide':

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is declining to call the 1915 massacre of Armenians a genocide, breaking a specific promise he made when he ran for president.

Obama says in a statement marking Armenian Remembrance Day that the massacre was the first mass atrocity of the 20th century. He's also praising Armenia for taking in Syrian refugees.
But the statement stops short of using the word "genocide" in his final annual statement on the issue.

M'kay, so there's a nig one ... derp! ... big one who doesn't believe what the Ottoman Turks did to the Armenians amounts to genocide. He only had eight years as president to live up to that promise, not nearly enough time when there's a war on Syria ... er, terror ... going on that requires a Turkish dictator ... er, ally ... to offer assistance.

But what about his potential successors? Trumpenfuhrer hasn't been given a talking point and pronunciation guide to help him with the issue yet, but Shillary has flip-flopped on the topic just like the Mulatto Messiah did:

“As president, I will recognize the Armenian genocide,” 2008 Clinton continued. [...] Yet when handed a golden opportunity to live out her morality as secretary of state, Clinton punted.

In July 2010, Washington's top diplomat visited the genocide memorial in Yerevan, but refused to use the magic word, and had the State Department refer to the occasion, absurdly, as “a private visit.” She lobbied Congress to ensure that the genocide resolution never reached the House floor. Asked by a State Department staffer at a January 2012 town hall whether such verbal sidestepping had “to do with our relationship with Turkey,” Clinton answered the question like a Turkish politician: “This has always been viewed, and I think properly so, as a matter of historical debate and conclusions rather than political.”

This is all the more ironic because Shillary's favorite Hollyweird funds-raiser, George "American Bono" Clooney was in Armenia this weekend to commemorate the 101'st anniversary of the Armenian Genocide (see the link directly above).

It must be so confusing being a Leftist.

Oh, and I almost forgot. THE JOOOOZZZZZ!!! Feel better, monocausalists? Note that YNET is the first link in this post, but I checked Haaretz as well. The latter didn't even mention Clooney in Yerevan, let alone why he would be there or that the Israeli government openly opposes acknowledging the Armenian Genocide. An interesting view into the state of the hive mind, don'tcha think?


  1. I knew a lot of Armenians in the valley where I spent my first 30 years. The two best car mechanics I knew were both Armenians. I had Armenian friends and teachers and colleagues. Not many but they stood out as top notch people. Not assholes at all, like many other immigrant groups. They tended to work hard and have a strong connection to landed life.

    They all told stories about their family's encounters with the Turks...but only when asked. They didn't make a huge-ass jewdeal of it. They were all amazingly assimilated, orderly, terrific people IME. The suppression of their historic/genetic experience is in my view one of the crimes of the times.

    1. Part of assimilation is realizing one is better off in the adopted homeland than in the homeland. Jews can NEVER permit such a realization because they will lose their identity. Hence their endless persecution narrative / self-fulfilling prophecy.
