Hrant Dink

Freedom fighter murdered. The scourge of fascism always on the edge. This is a clarion call for liberal institutions. As radicals we need to know when to draw the line, the liberal state, although most liberals in the end will not defend it, requires respect for all ideas and defense of such.

Hey there,

As a Fresnan, I have to weigh in. I hang out all the time with Armenians. This is still one of those things the American government is not willing to acknowledge. The Armenian genocide of the 1910s is a key event around here. Unforgettable, and regardless of the politics of it -- nearly Stalinist, to nearly Nazi, the fact is that the Turks murdered hundreds and hundreds of thousands.
