Punk Politics # 15

Let’s talk about Turkey and genocide, ya know the 2 things that make up Thanksgiving. What you may have missed during the impeachment noise. Lindsey Graham on behalf of America stated that America is not recognizing the Armenian genocide. Wait, what the fuck? You heard right. So after we have cleared the way for Turkey to commit a Kurdish genocide; Erdogan’s goon squad beat down American citizens on our own fucking soil 18 months ago for protesting his visit and Trump calls him a “very good friend” they get a pass on their previous genocide. Honesty I’m not the least bit surprised. It’s not like America has owned up to the indigenous genocide. Well that “good friend” has been invited back to the white house for a press conference in which he showed a “surreal” propaganda video painting the Kurds as terrorists. Also Erdogan said that he is keeping the S400 missile system whoch will likely be deployed against the Kurds. I’m guessing that after all this the 2 leaders went to make out and compare genocides and systematic racism.
