YOU KNOW YOUR MAJORITY IS USELESS WHEN...:

Support Wanes in House for Genocide Vote (CARL HULSE, 10/16/07, NY Times)

Worried about antagonizing Turkish leaders, House members from both parties have begun to withdraw their support from a resolution backed by the Democratic leadership that would condemn as genocide the mass killings of Armenians nearly a century ago.

Almost a dozen lawmakers had shifted against the measure in a 24-hour period ending Tuesday night, accelerating a sudden exodus that has cast deep doubt over the measure’s prospects.


...you can't even sustain an Islamophobic self-righteous hate for two minutes.

Nothing "islamophobic" about it. This was just the Hard Left looking for some way, any way, to gum up the works in the Middle East in support of their allies in Iran, Pakistan, Saudistan and so-called Palestine. It's the only genocide of the Twentieth Century that the Left can truly claim to have had nothing to do with, too.

The notion that it was genocide is Islamophobic.

Didn't Bernard Lewis get in trouble in a French court for saying it wasn't genocide?

Yes, they fined him a dollar and the Left now accuses him of being a Holocaust denier and the Right of being an Islamophile. It's an issue that brings out the most rabid crazies of both wings.
