DESPICABLE: Obama denies the Armenian holocaust

The great thing about history, and truth, is that it is immutable and although we try to revise it — that truth stands. As the wise man said, “those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” You see, history has no regard for those who turn a blind eye — they will be forced to respect what happened. And for the astute, history is a rich source for future lessons. Then there are those who choose not to honor history — and shamefully so, for they also dishonor those who have been victims of history’s horrific moments.

This is why General Eisenhower wanted pictures to be taken of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps so we would not forget — but more so, that we would “NEVER forget.”

A most horrific moment in our world history will soon have its 100th anniversary — but how many remember, or recognize it? Not our president.

As reported by Politico, “President Barack Obama will not use the word “genocide” to describe the massacre of up to 1.5 million Armenians in his annual statement commemorating the historic atrocity later this month. White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes informed Armenian-American activists of the decision in a meeting at the White House on Tuesday.”

“Obama will send Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to Armenia this week to represent the United States at a commemoration of the genocide, a years-long slaughter traditionally observed on April 24. Historians mark 1915 as the start of the genocide, making this year the 100th anniversary. The Armenians were slaughtered during the breakup of the Ottoman Empire, largely in what is modern-day Turkey, at the end of World War I. Today’s Turkish leaders are infuriated by charges that the founding fathers of their nation committed genocide.”

What I find amazing is that we in America do not demand the same standard of historical integrity on others that we place on ourselves. And why is it that President Obama would vehemently remind us at the National Prayer Breakfast of the Crusades — but has an issue speaking of this part of history?

I figure if the president could recall an event from 1095, well, it should be easy to be forthright with something that just happened in 1915. And let’s be honest, it wasn’t just the Armenian genocide but the Ottomans were also guilty of genocide against the Assyrians as well. So, is it wrong or offensive to speak historical truth? It would be like America being infuriated by another country addressing slavery and segregation. Does Turkey believe itself so above reproach that it cannot accept this part of its history? Do the Turks feel somewhat justified? No nation is without a stain, a black eye in its existence and only an advanced and mature nation can admit its wrongs.

I find it somewhat perplexing that a president so willing to condemn his own country finds it difficult to admit the wrongs of another. And the Secretary of the Treasury is representing the United States? C’mon, what is on Vice President Joe Biden’s schedule? If I were occupying 1600 Pennsylvania, I’d be attending this event – it’s just that significant in the history of the world.

It’s just that important to remember the horrors suffered by 1.5 million Armenian men, women, and children. It is important that the so-called “leader of the free world” stands for liberty and says, “never again.” Or perhaps it is more vital for America not to “infuriate” Turkish President Erdogan — an Islamist who has a track record of supporting islamic terrorism — and turning a blind eye.

And one thing history does — it keeps a record, and sometimes that record shows hypocrisy. “As a candidate in 2008, Obama issued a statement promising to describe the plight of the Armenians as a genocide, but in his previous five statements he has not done so — mainly to avoid a rupture in diplomatic relations with Turkey, a NATO ally and key partner in addressing the conflicts in Iraq and Syria.”

“Armenian-American leaders, hopeful that the 100th anniversary and recent support for their view from Pope Francis, were dejected on Tuesday. “This is a betrayal of the truth, a betrayal of trust, a disgraceful national surrender to a foreign gag order being imposed by the government of Turkey,” said Aram Hamparian, executive director of the Armenian National Committee of America, who attended the White House meeting.”

I must admit, Turkey may be a “NATO member” but I don’t exactly find it an actual ally. I will never forget the way Turkey changed its mind in 2003 on our unit, the US 4th Infantry Division, to be allowed to conduct our offensive operations into Iraq from the north. We had been promised safe passage and port reception and deployed our equipment only for it to be rejected and turned around, having to transit through the Suez canal and into Kuwait. Some of you can only imagine the damage to our vehicles and equipment after almost two months at sea – that’s not how an ally treats another. Then again, I suppose that’s what Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel say often.

“Sources familiar with the issue say the White House also considered sending U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, who has written in detail about the Armenian genocide, but that she is not expected to join the trip.”

And this is also once again causing a little rift in the Democrat party, especially from the California representative who has a significant Armenian population. “I’m deeply disappointed that the president, once again, will fail to properly describe the extermination of 1.5 million Armenians from 1915 to 1923 for what it was — genocide,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.). “How long must the victims and their families wait before our nation has the courage to confront Turkey with the truth about the murderous past of the Ottoman Empire? If not this president, who spoke so eloquently and passionately about recognition in the past, whom? If not after 100 years, when?”

To the Armenian people, let me say this, I fully recognize the savage brutality your people had to endure at the hands of the then Ottoman Empire. There are no words that can heal the pain of families who will be forever scarred. However, there will come a day in America when a courageous leader, a student of history — not just some soothsayer who can deliver empty political rhetoric — will stand with you on this Day of Remembrance and will utter the words of truth — the world today stands in recognition of the Armenian genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.

Until that day, accept my humble condolences, and remembrance.

  1. the more I hear of this man in the WH the more disappointed I am in him. Why don’t he just quit because he doesn’t want the job and is not up for the responsibilities that come with it.

      • He has unsheathed his claws little by little, but when he spoke in ’07 about “Fundamentally Transforming American,” I knew he was VERY bad news.

      • And unfortunately with the help of the LIBTARDS he is succeeding. It is going to take a lot of hard work to reverse the damage he has caused and the damage he is going to cause within the next 20 months. It is scary to think of what he might do. God Bless the USA.

  2. Ignoring the genocide in Turkey, ignoring the genocide of Christians in the middle east at the hands of Muslims right now.

  3. Really Allem?? just proves again that you’ll complain about anything……since you are soooo big on history…..were you at the March or any events that were held in Selma, AL??? No??? Then you really should keep your mouth shut!!!

  4. Obama’s attempt to rewrite history will fail just like everyone of his policies do. He is pride-filled moron that makes Jimmy Carter a distant 2nd place for the worst president title.

  5. Obama is just pissed that he can’t blame the Armenian Genocide on the US or Christians or Bush or Senate Republicans (i.e. those he considers his REAL enemies).

  6. Mr West… you wrote that President Obama is so willing to condemn the United States of America… when did he actually do that?
    What did he say that was a condemnation of the US?

    • Brendan . . . Where start? Just this last Prayer Breakfast Obama stated “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.” Obama: ‘Get off your high horse Americans’. These are just a couple.

      • Oh … you think that ever mentioning that anything bad ever happened in our history is a condemnation of America?

        That was from a speech where he was talking about people distorting religion to justify their hate.

        Oh… and he never said “Get off your high horse Americans”

      • Its too bad obama couldnt be bothered to even acknowledge much less condemn the muslim migrants from africa who threw all those people overboard in the Mediterranean sea and killed them because they were praying in a manner that appeared to be christian.

        But you can bet he would have gone the whole nine yards and held a press conference, sent in agents to do a private investigation etc if it was a group of christians that threw muslims overboard. Its very clear where his loyalties lie.

      • Republican fantasy.
        Talking to people with mutual respect was seen as weakness and apologies.
        Didn’t you find it odd that for all the times Republicans accused him of an apology tour they weren’t able to provide a single example of him apologizing for America?
        Zero apologies isn’t much of an apology tour.

        the closest quote they could try to twist against him was half of a comment he made taken out of context where he talked about American-European relations being strained.

      • Hey Brendan. You seem to have selective memory like BHO? What do you think he did in Cairo? In Turkey? which were his very first trips abroad?? You don’t know, or don’t want to believe what he said? Google it if your memory is blocking your honesty.

      • Nice try. He didn’t apologize. Here’s the funny thing.., if you think he apologized , why can’t you provide a single example of him apologizing?

        You say he did but you want me to look it up for you. Show me an example of him apologizing for America. All those speeches are online. Show me ghe apology.

        You can’t because you never saw it. You just heard people on right wing outlets tell you he apologized for America., bit you never saw it yourself.

      • How many times have you copied and pasted the same bs of denying he apologized for America? You can play the stupid role as long as you want. Google Obama’s speech in Cairo and then read it. Do you know how to read? I know, you are gonna come back with the same stupid “Nice try” blah blah blah. just get lost.

      • Sorry kid.

        Would you really like to know how many times I’m going to say there was no apology tour… how many times I’m going to keep asking you mindless sheep to provide a single example?
        I’ll stop when one of you retards can provide a single example of Obama actually apologizing for America on this phony apology tour.

        I read Obama’s speech in Cairo.
        YOU DID NOT.

        Some liar on talk radio told you that Obama apologized for America in Cairo and, because you are too stupid to look at the speech to see you were being lied to, you believed it.

        Go ahead kid.
        You made the claim that Obama apologized for America in Cairo.
        Prove it.
        You can’t because you’ve never read it and you know that if you look up the speech, like I did, you will discover that you have been lied to.

        So you know it’s a lie but you can’t admit it… so instead of looking up the speech and providing proof, you will respond with some stupid comment about how you don’t have to prove anything to me. blah blah blah.

        You’re busted kid

      • Thank you sir for responding with actual quotes, instead of just hurling insults as others have done.
        I respect your comment and I appreciate the research you did, though I disagree with the meaning of the quotes.

        I would like to address each one of those quotes, one at a time.
        But first, I would like to point out that in none of these does he actually ever apologize.
        More importantly the three quotes taken from speeches in other nations, on their own, removed from context, may appear to be apologetic… but that is only because the words he spoke immediately after and before are missing.
        I suspect you copied this from a website that was suggesting that these were apologies.
        that website you copied these from deliberately left off the rest of what he said.

        Let’s take them one at a time.

        *******************
        1. His speech in Strasbourg France he was talking about resentments between America and Europe and how they are in the way of our alliance…. there was no apology… he was simply talking about Europe and America respecting each other and working together.
        here was more of what he said to put it in context… the part you quoted is in the first paragraph….

        “In recent years we’ve allowed our Alliance to drift. I know that there have been honest disagreements over policy, but we also know that there’s something more that has crept into our relationship. In America, there’s a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.

        But in Europe, there is an anti-Americanism that is at once casual but can also be insidious. Instead of recognizing the good that America so often does in the world, there have been times where Europeans choose to blame America for much of what’s bad.

        On both sides of the Atlantic, these attitudes have become all too common. They are not wise. They do not represent the truth. They threaten to widen the divide across the Atlantic and leave us both more isolated. They fail to acknowledge the fundamental truth that America cannot confront the challenges of this century alone, but that Europe cannot confront them without America.”

        *****************

        2. April 6, 2009: Ankara, Turkey to the Turkish Parliament
        The quote you mentioned was not an apology in any way. He mentioned that America had a dark past to illustrate a point. He was speaking to the Turkish parliament about the Armenian Genocide and urged them to deal with their dark past so that the nation could heal and move forward the same way the United States did…. by facing our dark past and dealing with it, instead of ignoring it.

        Here is what he said… the line you quoted is in the first paragraph…

        “Another issue that confronts all democracies as they move to the future is how we deal with the past. The United States is still working through some of our own darker periods in our history. Facing the Washington Monument that I spoke of is a memorial of Abraham Lincoln, the man who freed those who were enslaved even after Washington led our Revolution. Our country still struggles with the legacies of slavery and segregation, the past treatment of Native Americans.

        Human endeavor is by its nature imperfect. History is often tragic, but unresolved, it can be a heavy weight. Each country must work throughits past. And reckoning with the past can help us seize a better future. I know there’s strong views in this chamber about the terrible events of 1915. And while there’s been a good deal of commentary about my views, it’s really about how the Turkish and Armenian people deal with the past. And the best way forward for the Turkish and Armenian people is a process that works through the past in a way that is honest, open and constructive.

        We’ve already seen historic and courageous steps taken by Turkish and Armenian leaders. These contacts hold out the promise of a new day. An open border would return the Turkish and Armenian people to a peaceful and prosperous coexistence that would serve both of your nations. So I want you to know that the United States strongly supports the full normalization of relations between Turkey and Armenia. It is a cause worth working towards.”

        This one is the closest he get to apologizing, but he doesn’t.
        He simply says the US will work more equally with them in the future.

        “All of us must now renew the common stake that we have in one another. I know that promises of partnership have gone unfulfilled in the past, and that trust has to be earned over time. While the United States has done much to promote peace and prosperity in the hemisphere, we have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms. But I pledge to you that we seek an equal partnership. There is no senior partner and junior partner in our relations; there is simply engagement based on mutual respect and common interests and shared values. So I’m here to launch a new chapter of engagement that will be sustained throughout my administration.”

        4. April 20, 2009: CIA headquarters, Langley, Va.
        He was speaking to the CIA, not a foreign government… he was not apologizing.. he was telling them that they can learn from their mistakes and move on… that is not apologizing for America.

        “So don’t be discouraged by what’s happened in the last few weeks. Don’t be discouraged that we have to acknowledge potentially we’ve made some mistakes. That’s how we learn. But the fact that we are willing to acknowledge them and then move forward, that is precisely why I am proudto be President of the United States, and that’s why you should be proud to be members of the CIA.”

        *******************************
        5. May 21, 2009: National Archives in Washington D.C.

        Aside from the fact that he was here in the US, he was definitely not apologizing for America.
        He was criticizing the policies of the Bush administration and announcing his administration would be different.

        Here is that quote in context…

        “After 9/11, we knew that we had entered a new era — that enemies who did not abide by any law of war would present new challenges to our application of the law; that our government would need new tools to protect the American people, and that these tools would have to allow us to prevent attacks instead of simply prosecuting those who try to carry them out.

        Unfortunately, faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions. I believe that many of these decisions were motivated by a sincere desire to protect the American people. But I also believe that all too often our government made decisions based on fear rather than foresight; that all too often our government trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions. Instead of strategically applying our power and our principles, too often we set those principles aside as luxuries that we could no longer afford. And during this season of fear, too many of us — Democrats and Republicans, politicians, journalists, and citizens — fell silent.

        In other words, we went off course. And this is not my assessment alone. It was an assessment that was shared by the American people who nominated candidates for President from both major parties who, despite our many differences, called for a new approach — one that rejected torture and one that recognized the imperative of closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay.”

      • Brendan your looking for the words “I apologize for america etc etc etc” coming out of obamas mouth at some point in time. Politicians dont speak bluntly like that. You must come to your own conclusions about what they mean based off their actions and NOT their words. When you factor in how often politicians (especially obama) blatantly lie about things then the words mean nothing and you can only judge by actions. And therein lies the problem. For most liberals obama can do no wrong, 1 step down from a reincarnated god, much the same way reagan was/is for conservatives.

        Obama isnt stupid enough to say something as blunt as the quote your looking for. If you cant connect the dots then thats no ones fault but your own.

      • Your assumption that I believe he can do no wrong and am deliberately reading it that way is incorrect.

        I think Obama is a mess.

        I think his healthcare reform was completely botched.
        I think his Wall Street bailouts without restrictions was reckless and costly.
        I think his long hesitation in expanding the war in Afghanistan not only cost lives but showed incompetence… and his continued expansion of the war after the death of Bin Laden only further committed our troops, and cost additional lives.
        I think his involvement in several high profile local domestic police matters was way over the line and inappropriate for the office of the President of the United States.

        So don’t assume I am some blind Obama supporter just because I defend him against accusations I think are false.

        But on the subject of interpreting things to fit your politics… I see the reverse happening when it comes to some conservatives and Obama… they are focusing on micro details so that they can assume the worst about what Obama says.

        Let’s take the example of Obama’s speech in Strasbourg France where anti-Obama people assume he was apologizing.

        I see it as he was having an honest dialog about American relations with Europe and the only mistake he made was talking honestly like an adult, instead of choosing every word carefully to avoid his political opponents finding something to twist.
        He said America was a force for good and that America and Europe need each other.

        All he did was point out that Europe and the US have a history of having a bad attitude about each other that isn’t helpful.
        I don’t see that as an apology… i see it as him being direct and essentially saying… yeah, we’ve been dickish to you sometimes, but you’ve been dickish to us too and we need to both stop being dickish and work together.

        In Turkey, he definitely did not apologize… he was urging Turks to recognize their dark past so they can move a=on and improve relations with Armenia… he used America’s dark past as a lesson by pointing out that acknowledging the past, instead of ignoring it, helps you get stronger.

        That there were some conservatives who saw that as “apologizing for America” is nuts.

      • Yet you voted for him. Those of us who didn’t, knew what he meant when he spoke of “fundamentally changing” America.

      • And there you go basing your beliefs on wrong assumptions.
        I guess it’s better to have your mind made up before checking facts.

        No… I did not vote for Obama… not in 2008 or 2012.
        Thanks for asking first, instead of jumping to conclusions.

      • But you’re here pounding on Conservatives. What gives with you? You seem to be quite the nasty little man.

      • I don’t disagree with Conservatives.
        i disagree with extremists who don’t fact check and spread false stories.
        Do you think every time you are wrong about something the other person is a nasty little man?

        And I’m sorry that you can’t understand that not everyone fits your mold.
        Just because I disagree with you, that doesn’t make me an Obama supporter.
        And just because I disagree with phony accusations against him, that does not mean there are no real accusations against him

      • Mostly the conspiracy stuff about him plotting to destroy the country or deliberate twisting of his words to infer a different sinister meaning.

      • That’s an excellent example.
        I don’t know exactly what he meant by that.
        Was he talking about making a change from the policies of the previous administration?

        ..or this is where the conspiracy stuff about him plotting to destroy the country comes in.
        He uses the words “fundamentally transform” and people start imagining the worst and putting a sinister meaning on it, turning those two words into a plot to destroy the country.

        That line is a n excellent example of some people jumping to radical conclusions.

        Usually his opponents just take parts of quotes out of context to suggest a sinister meaning.

        In a speech where he urges Muslims to defend Christians in the middle East, his opponents quote only one sentence out of context to make it appear he sounds like a radical Muslim.

        In a speech where he talks about wanting to expand the foreign service of the State Department and the outreach of the Peace Corps, his opponents take only a couple of lines out of context and try to suggest he wants a private brown shirt army.

        Those are the phony accusations I’m talking about.

      • People who were paying attention when Obama was campaigning in ’07, read his book, “Dreams From My Father,”
        and listened to what he was actually saying, KNEW that what he was planning to do was use his Saul Alinsky bible “Rules for Radicals,” which he thinks highly of and so do his close friends, KNEW that he planned to dismantle all that was good about America.

        We KNEW, but all you and your friends saw were the color of his skin and the way he could speak so well from his teleprompters. LISTEN to what he says! Follow the breadcrumbs. The truth is right in front of you about him, if you’re brave enough to open your eyes!

      • Me and my friends?
        The color of his skin?
        What are you talking about?
        I didn’t even vote for him.

        and your assertion that he was planning in dismantling America because of something in his book is an exact example of what I was talking about.
        What was in his book that led you to believe that?
        Do you know or are you just repeating what you’ve been told?

      • *YAWN*

        All I’m saying is that you should start paying attention …
        The only thing I repeated was what Obama has been saying…

        *YAWN*

      • You seem to have a problem telling the difference between facts and opinions. It looks like you can’t tell the difference at all. The fact is that Obama regularly apologizes to the people of other nations over the actions or opinions that the United States has taken. It’s a fact and I’ve provided five quotes of Obama doing just exactly that. Fact.

        There are tons of “journalists” on TV, in print and on the internet that love to share their opinions (also called analysis) about what Obama said or did. Their opinions about what he did have no bearing on whether or not he actually did or said those things.
        The people arguing with you are stating that Obama did this thing or said that thing and you are arguing that he did not when the facts show clearly that he did. When you argue that your opinion is a fact (when it clearly is just your opinion), you lose credibility. You can argue your opinion all you want, but it is important for YOU to know that it is your opinion and not actual fact that you are arguing. Most of us can tell the difference, but not all of us are articulate enough to say so.

        It is my opinion that people that argue just to argue are sociopaths. I have no facts to back that up but my observations lead me to that conclusion. Part of being a sociopath is a complete disregard for the emotions of others (fact) and I’ve observed you belittle others’ opinions and berate those that disagree with you simply for having a different view.

        Col. West stated that the Obama administration denies the Armenian Holocaust. This is an opinion based on the observation that Obama chooses not to participate. If you have an observation of Obama participating in the activity of remembering the Armenian Holocaust, it would certainly invalidate the opinion, but to disregard the opinion just because you believe that he is not without any observable phenomena to back it up is insane.

      • Brendan, you really need to get out more. The Lame stream Progressive media is not going to ever tell you anything outside the Socialist Point of View. If you buy into the talking points and only listen to Jon Stewert for your news you will forever be doomed to remain uninformed or at best misinformed.

      • Wow that was crazy.
        You accused me of not fact checking and only listening to biased news sources.

        And yet you could not provide a single example of this phony apology tour, which only proves that YOU don’t fact check and YOU blindly believe lies from biased media

      • Brendumb. You really don’t want to engage me. Liberals are always looking for reasons to be offended and I am more than willing to offend lowlifes that have no concept of history. I served my country to allow a$$wipes like you to be Stupid.
        Don’t bother responding, I will use my time to offending trolls, they are worthy opponents, you are not worth the ink.

      • Sorry kid.
        First… don’t try playing the veteran card with me because I am a veteran too, so you just look stupid.
        You’re a clown.
        I asked someone to provide a single example of this phony apology tour that right wing talk radio made up for sheep like you.

        You can’t provide a single example because there are none.
        All you have is childish insults.
        Every time you respond without providing a single example to back up that phony claim you are defending, you just look more an more stupid.

      • He also had a Presser yesterday or today at 7:30 AM to apologize for killing 1 American and 1 Italian being held hostage, with his drones in Afghanistan some time back, even though our military used those drones to take out an entire infestation of terrorists in that attack, which of course, Obama didn’t mention. He never praises our military!

      • Again… This was NOT a military drone strike.
        This was a CIA drone strike.
        The CIA still maintains a drone program that is separate from the military.

      • No.. it’s not whatever I say.
        There are two separate drone programs and this was a CIA drone strike.
        I am not guessing or making assumptions.

        Read the announcements of this strike.
        It was a CIA strike, not a military strike.

        Also here is a news article that explains that the CIA still runs their own drone program out of Langley that is separate from the Military and that the President would like to combine them but that is years away.

      • If that was your way of saying “thank you” for providing you with information… you’re welcome

  7. Its not like this is the first time obama has decided not to appear at a major worldwide gathering of leaders. He did this exact same thing with France. Not only did he refuse to recognize that it was islamic terrorists that perpetrated the attack, but he also characterized the attack on the kosher deli as “random” and then failed to show up at the rally. Seems like pretty much the same thing hes doing here, refusing to acknowledge the truth coupled with complete indifference and a refusal to attend any commemoration events, unless of course the issue directly impacts muslims or black people those are the only times he will show up.

  8. Substitute “Turkish President Erdogan” with “Barack Obama” and you have a plausible reason why he isn’t talking.

  9. Yes, indeed, Obama has very selective memory when it comes to history, remembering the Crusades, albeit wrongly, but not remembering this genocide

  10. His memory is bad he only remembers things that will tear this country down. The ancestors of people who were wronged many Times over. But he will not talk about how black people sold those black people for money to be slaves and that there were white slaves. Why don’t people let history go and make people accountable for what they do. Not let them live on their ancestors misfortune. Their ancestors are turning in their graves on how awful their families are, that they are not making their lives better. Not all American Black are like that they don’t riot because someone got caught killing , robbing a store , going into a home and robbing a family at gun point with children and not care. But if it is black on black the islamic militant in the Whitehouse and Jesse,al and Lou don’t spew their hatered funny isn’t it just like them. If I am not mistaken you are African American if you came from Africa and became a citizen here ie African American . Same for Polish America, MexicanAmerican, Italian American, Spanish American they all came from different countries and became American Citizens

    • It’s 2015 and I thought America was getting over the hyphenated American thing until 2009. I’m 77 and have witnessed 1st hand the racial division in America and hope I was never a conduit for some of the hate I witnessed. I felt that when I moved to MS from TX that I could help by passing on the many skills I had acquired over my lifetime. ( Electrician, Plumber, Carpenter, Air & Heat Technician and business owner) After 20 years of attempting to pass some of my skills on I have constantly been beaten down by “I can only work for cash” can’t afford to lose my benefits. Now after 6 years of BHO, in my area, race relations are more strained than in 65. Can America survive much more Progressive claptrap?

  11. Last night, Kirsten Powers, a Democrat Strategist, said she is tired of the way Obama ignores the Christians being slaughtered in the Middle East. It was refreshing to hear a wrong-winger starting to wake up to the truth!

  12. To admit it, would go against his Islamic, (Ottoman), nature and rules. Everything Obama does fits perfectly with the rules of conduct for the Muslim world!
    He is an embarrassment to America.He didn’t even exist until he ran for Senate, unopposed, thanks to his team of sweepers.

  13. In 1985, the United Nations Sub-Commission’s report which stated that the Ottoman’s systematic massacre of Armenians during the World War I meets the criteria for the UN definition of GENOCIDE and as one of the genocides of the 20th century.

    In 1997 the International Association of Genocide Scholars (IAGS) passed a resolution unanimously recognizing the Ottoman massacres of Armenians as GENOCIDE:

    “…this assembly of the Association of Genocide Scholars in its conference held in Montreal, June 11–13, 1997, reaffirms that the mass murder of OVER a million Armenians in Turkey in 1915 is a case of GENOCIDE which conforms to the statutes of the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide. It further condemns the denial of the Armenian Genocide by the Turkish government and its official and unofficial agents and supporters.”

    Before the Kenyan FRAUD was selected as pResident of the WH, he once described the slaughter of Armenians Christians as a genocide, but since taking office, the disgraced Skunk has not used that word.

  14. Of course Obumbler wouldn’t dare upset his ‘closest friend’ (his own words) being Edrogan. Turkey can and often does get away with murder now that Obumbler runs the show. He has always lied outright. It’s so hard to believe that he continues to get away with it. Remember when he said the Jerusalem should be the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided? It didn’t take him long to retract that statement. So of course he had no problem lying to the world about declaring the murder of millions of Armenians by the Turks as a genocide and then retracting his promise. I understand that most politicians lie at some point but he is surely the world’s best at it.

  15. Sometimes knowledge and wisdom leads us into unexpected areas. Some call it based upon a “chance” … but nothing in life is the result of “chance” it is part of a PLAN by a power higher than our “flesh”.
    THINK ABOUT IT …. you are not a being by “chance” and therefore you have a purpose, maybe not your yourself … BUT FOR OTHERS !!!
    Saying this I propose a Conservative Republican ticket of …. Cruz-West and let the …. wagon train … roll over ANY socialist Democrat !!

      • I do not know what John Liberty weighs in actual pounds, but his words on this discussion thread seem very apt!!

    • We need some good people like the two candidates you suggest!!! I misread this post and thought at first it said “Obama Denies the American Holocaust.” I should always wear my glasses!!! Having said that, your post makes me wonder once again about what plan the Higher Power might have had for our 60 million lost American babies.
      We are not the strong country we might have been, spiritually or economically. But hopefully that will all change and we will remember we are not God! Maybe he will give America a second chance if we turn from our internal Holocaust and become responsible citizens once again!!

  16. I think of myself as a realist when it comes to international affairs. I understand that sometimes in dealing with other nations we have to choose between supporting our ideals and advancing our national security interests. That’s why we’re “friends” with countries like Saudi Arabia and Pakistan who don’t share our values but share a common interest with us.
    Having said that, f**k this noise. Everybody except the Turks agrees that this was a genocide. A monstrous thing was done by the founders of their country and they want us to help them sweep it under the rug. They need to admit it and move past it the same way Germany has. Obama should man up and tell the Turks that genocide is genocide even if it hurts their feelings. So should Benjamin Netanyahu, if there’s anything Israel should stand against, it’s genocide and their silence has been deafening on this issue.

    • Yes and this must be validated by legal resolution, must be recognized by the UN and in every other way. I am not sure why it has not. I understand political crap attached to it, but the UN should take the lead and make this happen. But then again, the UN maybe does not care either. Is shame.

  17. What happened to the Germans after WWII should also happen here. Don’t hold one guilty and the other not for the same thing. This is just more proof that the islamic religion needs to be banished from the face of the earth. Burn all the books and kill all the muslims. If they really believe in the quran then they must die.

  18. Don’t be perplexed. The rising anti-Christ is from Turkey, and Obama, the American Caliph, pays him homage before his arrival by not speaking ill of his country of origin.
