Rejecting US President Joe Biden’s remarks on Armenian claims about the events of 1915, Turkey’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday said that the statement lacks any scholarly or legal basis and is not supported by the evidence.This is surprising indeed, considering what the Democrats are like these days. France 24 says their were local crowds of Armenians going out to condemn Erdogan, with good reason.
“We reject and denounce in the strongest terms the statement of the President of the US regarding the events of 1915,” the Ministry, stated, noting that it was made “under the pressure of radical Armenian circles and anti-Turkey groups”[...]
President Joseph Biden officially recognized the Armenian Genocide, today, rejecting the longest-lasting foreign gag-rule in American history and dealing a major setback to Turkey’s century-long obstruction of justice for this crime.
But what's really worth considering is that on this topic, of all things, a leftist did what a rightist may have fallen short of doing: showing the courage to unambiguously address what this subject is about. And it's something conservatives are going to have to learn from. If right-wingers really want to prove they're worthy of leadership, they have to do exactly what the otherwise awful Biden did, and show they have the guts to call the Armenian Genocide committed by Turkey's Ottoman jihadists just that. This should not even be remotely difficult to consider.
