Now this is too muchSubmitted by gottago on Wed, 04/22/2009 - 12:16
I tried discussing with a (now former friend) neo-con about some recognition for the genocide/holocaust against Christians and Armenians in Russia under bolshevik rule. I stated that over 50 million people were slaughtered and it's never discussed as a public topic or even recognized. He told me that the number killed in Russia was made up and called me a anti-semite for trying to distract from the world's worst act of genocide in history that occurred in Germany during the 1940's against the Jewish population.
First, how the heck is this anti-semitic?
Second, how am I making up a number recorded in history?
Third, why isn't genocide against Christians and Armenians ever recognized as the worst genocidal act ever committed in the history of mankind or even considered a genocide/holocaust?
What gives? Am I missing something here?
