What Genocide? The First State-Directed Mass Murder in a Bloody Century

 

France24 has topics for both Sri Lanka and the Armenian Genocide. No stories on the Armenian Genocide 104th anniversary appear on CNN’s website. Then again, CNN is in good company with Fox News, also silent on the anniversary. As a brief refresher, the Ottoman Empire, almost on its death bed—before a group of younger officers dragged the Turkish nation into secular modernity—launched a campaign against Armenian communities. This ethnic cleansing and mass murder campaign was not only ethnic but also religious.

The Ottoman sultan would no longer tolerate the existence of some of the most ancient Christian communities in the world. There was much unrest in the larger region over borders and nations. The rationale offered by the Turks’ German allies, at the time, was that there was only room for one people on the land. Americans launched large humanitarian relief efforts, but no nation stepped in to stop the atrocities. Indeed, who could, as war raged in Europe, then gave way to the task of rebuilding and redrawing maps.

No Need to Apologize, Fox

 

I didn’t want to comment on the Fox News thing that the media has been going insane over, but there’s a lot going on here that’s really getting on my nerves. For those not familiar, “Fox & Friends” had a discussion about Trump cutting funding to three Central American countries — El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Unfortunately, the chyron ran with this:

Truth Cries Out

 

Walking through downtown Mesa, AZ, the Monday after the Mueller report news broke, one of the public art statues leaped out at me. A newsboy stands astride his stack of newspapers, waving a copy over his head and shouting out the news. The front page has a one-word headline, all caps and bold: “TRUTH.” What a contrast to the sordid state of our current “journalism.”

The background is littered with paint cans and construction barriers. This is part of a facade renovation for downtown Main Street. How much more does our news business need renovation?

LZ Granderson, over at CNN, has this on the Jussie Smollett hoax. Don’t bother to click. Here’s a summary. He hopes it turns out a gay black man really was the victim of a racist, homophobic hate crime because that would be better than Jussie Smollett becoming a poster boy for undermining the narrative that […]

Real Hate Speech and Actually Unsafe Community [UPDATE: 30 November]

 

The suspect in the first of two closely timed attacks on Orthodox Jewish boys sure doesn’t look like a skinhead or Klansman, which is why there is not a word about the suspects’ race.

The boy was walking home with his mother around 6 p.m. Sunday near Throop Avenue and Walton Street in Williamsburg.

CNN Fake News About World Chess Championship

 

Magnus Carlsen retained his championship today. CNN reported:

For most of November there was deadlock. Twelve games, 12 draws, a too-close-to-call psychological battle conducted before a devoted global audience locked at 6-6. And so, in a soundproof studio in a grand Victorian building in central London, the world title was decided by a series of quickfire tie-breakers for the first time in the competition’s official 132-year history.

Psychiatry and medication can be very beneficial to correcting bizarre and very unstable behavior. Some people, even very prominent celebrities, who otherwise have been often regarded as sane and respectable (for the most part), need professional psychiatric help. Some people should seek that help immediately. More
