This week the US House passed a resolution condemning the genocide of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire…….intended to be a thumb in the eye of the Turks for their incursion into the Kurdish area of northern Syria after BMT abandoned the Kurds, our allies who lost 10,000 men and women fighting with the USA to quell the ISIL
One Representative voted “Present”…. Ilhan Omar, and now she is catching hell for not voting Yes. I stand with her.
This resolution will do nothing to help the Kurds and only has pissed off the Turks. But there is a much larger reason for my standing with Rep. Omar:
Where are the similar resolutions against China, for the genocide in Tibet? And right now, the “re-eduation” camps of over a million Uyghers, indigenous Muslims of China?
BUT, what really galls me is the failure of the United States to formally and officially apologize to African Americans for the over 400 years of slavery and the continuing oppression of Blacks in this Country!
Then there is our penal system, which has the greatest number of incarcerated humans in the world, with a very disproportionate number people of color.
Come on Speaker Pelosi, let’s get real ok!
Politrix is NOT Humanity!!!
