Watch the raw video, substitute "jew, chinaman, italian, mexican,Baptist, jap, African, Irishman" and see how it sounds. The Cohen Youth can't seem to understand that Mr. Cohen has hatred for some ethnic groups while he manipulates others. You have seen his dark underbelly.
correction: above should read "disagree with Cohen"
And to Packrat, do you think hate crime is funny?
The Intelligence Report does indeed reflect the opinions of the SPLC, in that it is its official publication. The blogger on Hatewatch merely references the article. Tinker is a supporter of H.Res.106. Recall that H.Res.106 never came to vote (so that Tinker could have had the opportunity to disagree with it), largely because Cohen helped kill it. This is strange behavior from a Jewish human rights crusader whose own ancestors suffered a similar fate. This is true, especially, since the Armenian genocide served as the prototype (as Hitler himself said)for the jewish holocaust. Does this matter to the 9th voters? It should.
You sir, are a troll. Cohen was wrong about this and he knows it. Genocide denial is a hate crime. You are abetting a hate crime by your rhetoric. I will refer you to hatewatch.org ("keeping an eye on the radical right") to remind you that you are blindly supporting your congressman's position, which is far more in line with the radical right wing, than with the position that your moniker suggests that you espouse. Are you indeed a closet neocon?
The "secular ally" bit shows your ignorance of the dangerous ultra-nationalism, anti-semitism, and hatred of the US that is the reality of modern Turkey.
"The infamous manifesto penned in prison during the 1920s by one of history's greatest despots has become a bestseller in Turkey, a troubling sign of increasing anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism.
Since January, Mein Kampf has sold more than 50,000 copies, rising to No. 4 on the bestseller list. The book outlines Hitler's plans for world domination and his intense hatred of the Jewish people.
"A lot of people in the West don't realize this has always been a popular book among radical Muslims," says Steve Hagerman, founder of Turkish World Outreach. "They think it's a tragedy Hitler didn't win the war. This is symptomatic of growing anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism in the country."
Cohen took money from these people to help them deny the murder of 1.5 million Christians.
More on your secular friends, also known as "the most anti-American country in the world":
Perhaps no Armenian will physically be resurrected, but honoring the dead (and living, see below) of a historic injustice will send a message to the world of our country's commitment to human rights. That was Tom Lantos' (the only Holocaust survivor in congress at the time h.res.106 passed in committee) sentiment when he said:
"One of the problems we have diplomatically globally is that we have lost our moral authority which we used to have in great abundance. People around the globe who are familiar with these events will appreciate the fact that the United States is speaking out against a historic injustice. THIS WOULD BE LIKE SWEEPING SLAVERY UNDER THE RUG AND SAYING SLAVERY NEVER OCCURRED."
In this quote, it shows eloquently how ironic it is that Cohen attempted to honor the survivors of slavery and went out of his way to block H.Res.106. Do you and your buddy Steve know more about genocide and human rights than the late Tom Lantos?
Oh, if you respond with the "it happened a long time ago" bit, tell that to the Armenian genocide survivors that attended the House Foreign Affairs Committee in October, 2007. They are sharper than you are and will appreciate your hilariously ill-informed and ironic comments.
Admit it: Steve took money to do the bidding of a foreign government when he thought no one was looking. Not illegal, but immoral. Perhaps you should change your name to Neoconcracker.
You are uncivil, autoegocrat, as well as ill-informed. Obama, whom Cohen endorses, disagrees with you, as does the Speaker of the House. So do 53 Nobel laureates and innumerable Holocaust survivors. Cohen trying to speak with moral authority on Darfur while accepting favors and contributions from Turkey to lead their U.S. PR campaign is the pinnacle (intended) of hypocrisy. Keep your profanity and your profane thoughts to yourself.
Double Killing, according to Elie Wiesel:
"Last year, the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity issued a letter condemning Armenian genocide denial that was signed by 53 Nobel laureates including Wiesel, the famous Holocaust survivor and political activist. Wiesel has repeatedly called Turkey's 90-year-old campaign to cover up the Armenian genocide a double killing, since it strives to kill the memory of the original atrocities."
There's a difference between not supporting a measure and actively campaigning against it. Was he worried about national security on his junket to Turkey in May, 2007? Was he worried about national security when he attempted to recruit a US-Turkish summit to Memphis last June? Cohen has fallen under the spell and finances of the Turkish lobby, like Solarz and Livingston. Never mind H.Res.106. Ask Cohen to use the word "genocide" referring to this issue. This will satisfy hate crime/genocide watch dogs. Ask Cohen's shill to write about this issue too. The SPLC article was just released. This is an active human rights issue.
Did you read the SPLC article? Keep the ad hominem's to yourself and read it carefully. Then read Cohen's quotes. Read what your A+ on Darfur man has been saying. Read the scholarship on the issue. Read why the SPLC thinks such behavior is a hate crime, then get back with me. Do you even know what the SPLC is? Do you know the issue better than that organization? Read before you write, next time.
