No they don't. The host used to deny the Armenian genocide when he was in college but has since then his political views have changed and he realized he was wrong

level 2

A certifiably admirable change of heart. Again, I know literally nothing, and will have to look all this up, but I’m keeping the updated source because it’s closer to the original video I’m referencing.

level 2

Not completely false, then. Good, though, ofc.

level 3

Well it pretty much is completely false because the show itself has never denied the genocide, only the founder before the show was even created.

level 2

Still named after the party that committed the Armenian genocide

level 3

No its named after a saying that happens to be derived from that party.

level 2

“The Young Turks” are literally a reference to the Ottoman government that committed the Armenian genocide.

It’d be like a former Nazi still calling his podcast/show “The Nuremberg Rallies.”

level 3

Nope, look it up. They named their show the Young Turks because it's a common American saying which is " slang for a rebellious youth who acts contrary to what is deemed normal by society" Also even so, your analogy doesn't make sense. It would be more like a former nazi calling his show the nazis

level 4

The Young Turks is literally the group responsible for the Armenian genocide.

They can deny it all they want, it doesn’t change the truth.

level 5

I know what they are, stupid. It's also a common saying which derived from the fact that the young turk party in the ottomans didn't allow people over a certain age in. Use fucking Google

level 6

The phrase is only in common usage due to a history of the US ignoring the Armenian Genocide.

Use your fucking brain. TYTs are totally fine with white washing the Armenian genocide because they’re cunts.

level 7

Sounds like you just don't like their politics. Most people when they think Young Turks they think of the common saying, not the historical reasons why the saying exists.

level 8

That’s ignorance and it’s not an excuse.

The one guy was previously vocally a genocide denier. Hard to like that man’s politics, so I question why you’re defending them.

level 9

Im saying that the saying's meaning is completely different than the actual political party. I'm defending him because he has since completely changed his mind and that was like 15-20 years ago when he was in college. People change

level 10

people don’t fucking change from being genocide advocates dude.

He’s a trash person. Why defend him?
