so there was this film released 2 days ago, pic related
at least scroll to the bottom before you think its just an advertisement thread, its only coincidentally so, and this OP is related to current-day politics, and though it ain't gonna be that great an OP, I wanna get this idea out there when it matters
so that movie, The Promise; its a historical WW1 film that follows the story of a fictional Armenian man that lived in Turkey before the Armenian genocide, the anniversary of which, I was told, is actually on the 24th of April, which in burger time is considered to be tomorrow
basically this man is a medicine man who lives in a village wants to go to a university or something in Constantinople to become a doctor, but doesn't have enough money to do it, so he decides to agree to marry some rich armenian and uses the dowry to study in Constantinople, but thats not the point
the point is that the Armenian genocide happens and that just before that Armenian Christians and turkroach islamics were living in peace together
now why is this important to you /pol/? and why would you care about Armenians, who some of you may think are like what you call Jews?
the turkroaches were portrayed as being completely ruthless and unforgiving, sending people out to the desert, dashing babies against rocks, killing swaths and swaths of people, and even putting Armenians in labor campssound like concentration camps?, and at one point in the movie some guy broke his ankles after he dropped part of a railroad track on his feet, and to avoid his starving to death, the main character and another guy helped him up to go elsewhere, then a turkroach shot him and called him deadweight, and told the main character at gunpoint to thank him for killing the man that he called deadweight
the turkroaches wanted to kill every single Armenian in the entire country, if not the entire planet, and in the movie they politically and officially denied that it happened, and they, in real life, still deny that it happened to this very day
now consider that thisPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
