What's so funny Oliver about genocide ? you are a garbage of society.
It's pretty stupid when every media is always trying to make Armenia "Land of Kardashians"
While SOAD talks about genocide a lot of time, and yet the media didn't talk about their doing because they're metal band with talent
My father met a man who survived the Armenian genocide in the 1980's in his teens through his community. I have met 3 holocaust survivors.
Wow, the good old days when comedians actually criticized democrats
Shhh, nobody show this video to The young turks. In fact, don't give them a history book either.
funny... but that under the table "kill putin" joke... typical leftist bullshit
i am armenian from turkey and i think this is a big lie nobody killed me here im alive living in turkey my grandfather is alive and his best friends were from turkey, there is nothing called genocide, we live in peace and harmony with the turks and the turks are the most generous people
I knew Armenian genocide because of history.
Armenian bullshit, the biggest lie and political propaganda..
Yes, 300.000.000.000.000 people killed in armenian deportation aösdladöasdlas hahasdhasdashdashd stupid americans . Pull your fucking asshole on the middle east , american pigs .You're not a global power now! Understand it now
ormonıan gonocodo . The Armenian lobby will finish you stupid americans
So what if there was a genocide? What, we're gonna kill all Turks now?
wow what a fucking racist. he can't even talk about genocide w/o trying to murder some Slavs. It's called slavophobia Oliver, look it up, it has your picture next to the definition
no one cares about what happened in 1915 in east Anatolia, its all political games.
the problem is that most industrial countries (especially the USA by the way) comitted ethnical mass murder on ethnic groups or minorities without acknowlediging it as genocide.
What the turkish government and Erdogan does is disgusting, but - Are we really better than them?
I am german and we wiped out the Herero Tribe in South Africa in 1904 under a colonial military commander named von Trotha, without acknowledigng it as genocide to this day...
The massacre was mutual because Armenians rebelled to Ottoman Empire backed by Russian Tsar. When Tsar was murdered by Bolsheviks Armenians lost support because Bolsheviks knew Armenia was backed by Western interest. And Armenians were deported and many died :( a big number around 500000. Similarly around 500000 Turks and Kurds died during Armenian rebels and terror organisations. But the Armenians in big cities continued their lives gradually felt threatened and left the country in the following years. Their transportable possessions were not confiscated... But this story is about exactly what happens when local communities fight each other for an alien interest. As a Turkish person, i hate politicians sneaky and cunning whatever nationality i don't care. But traumatizing both societies and world with an unnecessary hostility towards each other because of a past civil war? That is sick. And then you want us to stay silent and obedient about Israel? Or maybe you dont but whats the reason of this silence? There are even some ridiculous claims by American historians suggesting the presence of gas chambers in 1914 ottoman empire. a nice hit of LSD i hope otherwise that is insanity. Pure propaganda. I am very sorry the souls that are lost during the baby steps of toddler like egoistic stupid capitalist brain fuck soup that we have to live in today. Maybe it was exactly like that in the past. So stupidity goes on by abusing thousands of dead bodies thrown around oil maps and wait for Superman to come to save us. Or just USA maybe, would fit great with the self centeredness. Sorry for punctuation i am terrible with that.
If you want to learn more about Armenian question, follow my Instagram account "stoparmenianlies"
yes Armenians are dead but we r dead to. why do you talk about this. why do you talk about Deceased Muslims ? .. you r just racist. J U S T
Who was behind the genocide and who funded it? Could it be the same people behind the genocide in China and the former USSR? The people who started and funded two world wars? The people who raped and murdered their way through small villages and towns all while claiming they were the victims and they torched cities and replaced them with their own. The people who are the most powerful in the world and pretend that claiming such is racist? Does anyone know who I am talking about?.....Here's a (((hint)))
i first heard about the Armenian genocide from system of a down
The fact that the so called "Armenian genocide" is just a widespread, shameless lie will surprise only those who watch the kardashians and the news and ignore history.
WHAT ABAOUT CIRCASSIAN GENOCIDE? I bet You fucking armenians dont even know about it.
And don't forget the Pontic genocide!!!
The only reason behind why people know about this fuckocide (!) is Kardashian's ass lol :D
I found out about the Armenian Genocide because of The Young Turks. Fuck the Kardashians.
Also, despite John Oliver being a massive cuck, this WAS a very good video.
The interesting thing about this is that if Kardashian had shown no interest in the Armenian genocide, and not given a fuck about it, none of these precious morons would be complaining about her.
It doesn't matter how you get a message out. As long as it gets out. When it finally does hit the mainstream, people complain? No wonder Armenians haven't been able to get this message out if that's how little they understand how the media works.
They can either build on this new focus created by Kardashian or complain about it. Seems like looking a gift horse in the mouth to me. Would they rather their messenger was some unknown academic who can't get more than 10 people to listen to him?
Whoever is against Armenia, he is against civilization
ah, Armenians... why do you have to be so pathetic? So pathetic that when I laugh at your situation I feel ashamed of myself.
Here is a "friendly" advice from a Turk, take it as you will: The Genocide was a necessary evil. Either get over with it already and focus on progress OR stay stucked in the past and continue to illegaly immigrate to Turkey to do our laundrywork for 5 TL/hour. The choice is yours, and it is really that simple, for Turkey will NEVER accept the genocide.
Cenk Uygur disliked this
I don't agree with everything that comes out of his mouth, but this was gold
Oliver would kill Putin. I GIVE THE MAN A LIKE :D
I don't know history (No one knows) because our history was written by our ancestors so we know history in their sight (I believe). I know a lot of Turkish died in trains because of bad conditions when Russia Government told them to leave Russia (same as The Armenian Genocide). I can say that I'm sorry for Armenians but burning and trampling our flag (altough this genocide doesn't have anything to do with Turkey but Ottoman Empire) and saying curses to us. I know that a lot of Armenians killed Turkish villagers during the Independence War. Although they were called Millet-i Sadıka (The Loyal Nation) by Ottomans. I'm sorry for your loss but it was a war I won't say that "They did the same thing!! So we were right to do it." because killing people is always bad for everyone. I hope you will understand me.
what is this killing Putin shit? leave the guy alone, hes not fucking with us john. you know we think Russian news commentators are inflammatory, but youre the same if not worse. go back to merry old england you fucking limey
thats not a genocide. but u can say its genocide. cuz its like an ant attacking on lion and then lion step on it.
John is a fucking puppet ......
It is imperative to point out, and i reaaaaaly hope @JohnOliver listens, that the Armenians rebelled against the Ottomans and seized cities to hand them over to the enemy (Russia). the Ottoman Turks reacted in a very ruthless manner and almost a million Armenians were killed or displaced. I will not judge whether their decision to rebel against their ''country'' (as they were considered ottoman citizens) was a good one or not but they must have understood that it will come at a price. you can see them as freedom fighters or treasonous subjects.
there is no genocide, fucking liars.
what i can't stand are the straw-man arguements made by Turks in the comments section trying to justify this genocide by saying how the Greeks treated them bad back and how they were treated in the Balkans after the Turks lost the Balkans.
gerçekleri yazıyorum siz ayaklandınız bizi öldürdünüz biz de sizin ANANIZI SİKTİK. ALSKDŞLASKDŞASL
i HATE this subhuman fuck bitch so much. he needs to worry about his own people. always slamming christians but never anyone else.
Excellent movie, I highly recommend it
As a Turk, I would like to apologize to the Armenians seeing how our shit government would not do it. Sorry, Armenians, let's hope other Turks like this!
ENVER TALAT CEMAL!!!
The Young Turks commited the Armenian genocide.
this is fucking disgusting, these people should be hung
The Turks genocide on the Armenians shall not be uttered near Cenk Uygur....Branding nightmare! Thank god college leftist snowflakes don't know anything other than being a victim.
Yet years later Kim uses a communist hoodie
Talking about genicide huh
this guy is jack ass, no honor ,respect ,typical liberal fuck up
Was not just armenian, also greek and assyrian genocide. 3 million christians murdered by muslim turks . turk nation is built on blood, like others but turks are openly proud of it. i have been in several countries including turkey and the atmosphere in turkey is toxic. blind nationslism and islamic extremism. and this shit is in the NATO and negotiating with EU
for real what the f@ck there was a genocide and they care for the kardasians for fuck shake
Leave it to the Muslims to deny any wrongdoing ever in history. At least Christians can be self critical. The largest slave trade in human history was also Islamic. I don't see blacks asking Muslims for reparations.
kardashian are fat and ugly. nothing else... ariana grande is hot :D
all racist idiots assembled in the comment section... idiots go to school and read books instead of watching bullshit like this... first this is only satire not even true news and secondly there are many evidences that armenians massacred 130 000 turks and so ATATÜRK later forced 500 tausend of them to imigrate... 40-60 tausend died... during the fights also more then 60000 turkish soldier died against 200 000 russian supported rebells!1!!!!
FUCK MEDIA... the historians proved that the armenians did the genocide against turks with the help of russia cuz they wanted to establish their own state... they though they could be succesful cuz turkey was in war against 5-6 states and they though turkey would lose 100% so they started killing innocent people about 130 tausend kaukasian turks... but turkey won the war (at least could defent anatolia) and after the war 500 tausend armenians were made imigrate and during this 40-60 tausend died... thats all the story... so believe armenians who massacred 1000 azerbaijani in 1992 in karabag and also now taken land from azerbaijan or believe turkey and tausend of histical proves? and he most tragidic point is that people talk about greek armenian assyren genocidie?! wtf.. all know that greeks even burned mosques down with hundreds of people in them... but ok western madia is under their control and what they claim must be right... poor world
This is not a funny subject you fuck
guys do you even know how many people death at first world war? how many turkish people death at war?
fuck cenk uyger
Us Armenians hate the Kardashians because ONCE a year, they show that they are Armenians and actually give a shit about recognition for the genocide. There are so many other ordinary Armenians that fight for justice all year round and are far more active than these brainless celebrities
Too bad John, I and many other Turks liked you. I for one am a big fan of Ian Duncan.
Seeing as you chosen to be history-phobiac, I'm gonna have to stop watching your show. You were starring to annoy me with your cringe-worthy impressions anyways.
Fuck armenian baran
FUCK armenia GO AZERBAIJAN GO GO GO GO GO GO TURKEY GO AZERBAIJAN GO PAKISTAN GO ISRAEL GO TURKISH COUNTRY GO! fuck armenia fuck russia fuck serbie fuck serbia fuck bulgaria!
Less than 500 thousand armenians died on an incident of forceful
emigration that took place during the Turkish-Russian war in which
Armenians (Turkish citizens) decided to revolt and took the side of the
Russians. Forceful emigration was a military decision that aimed to
secure the supply lines of the army.
Armenian gangs (called tashnak, hinchak, tashnaksutyun) not only
attacked Turkish troops from back but also were very good at "cleansing"
and burning of Turkish and Kurdish villages. More than 2 million muslim
civilians died and the armenian losses (along with cold winter and
famine) were the result of local Kurdish tribes that attacked the
emigrating armenians for the revenge of their own families and
There is no dispute on the armenian revolt. Revolt is a historical fact.
Something they are even still proud of. In fact they advertised the
revolt very well with magazines, papers, posters and leaflets , with
pictures describing how efficiently they were cleansing the muslim
population. These documents became explicit after glasnost/perestroyka
when KGB archives were opened. Was anyone surprised?
Did anyone change his policy?
It is just ignored.
I am sorry but Armenians do not possess the "innocence factor" ...
Jews did not revolt against the germans, nor did they burn any german
villages. That is why that is called a genocide... Jews were innocent.
Armenian case is a bilateral war-crime storm at best (or wost..).. or a
Kardashian is a national armenian hero! True spirit of armenians
americans love talking about armenian genocide what about the genocide of the native Americans and the Africans slaves
Politics is always involved in these types of situations. Here are a few brief points:
1. The Ottoman Empire did not plan the genocide alone they had the counsel of their German Allies
2. The Ottomans wanted complete control of the empire b/c it was slowly beginning to collapse, so they began a purge of not just Armenians, but anyone who was not Muslim (the majority were Armenian).
3. The purge was due to multiple other reasons, eliminating any threat of rebellion, confiscating wealth that non-Turks had to feed their war machine, starting an ultra-nationalist movement (once again for military purposes)
4. The genocide was primarily orchestrated by three individuals known as the three pashas (a quick google search will reveal their names and bios) there is also some evidence suggesting that they had links to the State of Israel.
5. Similar to the Holocaust, the price to deport a large population out of the country was too high so they simply began killing everyone. They first executed anyone they perceived as having money/power/valuables to confiscate their stuff.
6. As for everyone else, to really reduce the cost of killing all the common folk, the Ottoman Empire used the desert as a giant oven and lead people on death marches (they told them they were being relocated).
Today several nations including the US for example, have not accepted the genocide primarily because of military/economic reasons. Turkey is a NATO member which allows the US to have strategic military bases in the region. Don't take my word for it, if you look at the historical facts, the vast majority of reputable scholars and people with no political, military or economic interests on the issue have concluded it was in fact a genocide. Please try to be objective about this and argue with facts rather than feelings.
Heil Enver Pasha, Heil Talat Pasha... Long live Turkiye...
Is genocide such a funny topic for your program? choose another topic for sarcasm!!!!
current year man is a faggot
Turkey always hate Armenia since 884 A.C
wow, so many genocide deniars.... thank you turks for showing the world that you have not learned ANYTHING in the last 100 years. you are the same blood-thursty, hating, ungodly, creatures. I feel sorry for your existence
The biggest lie and political propaganda. Absolutely easiest way to collect money..
The genocide is a lie.The Turkish government opens all of military and civillian records of ww1 to all researchers and journalists.However, as usual people prefer talking to reading .
yo this is hilarious screw turkey
Turkey denying everything the ottoman empire did , genocide and enslaving the Balkans .. with recent developments they showed who they are .. fuck em
In 1914 your traitor grandparents chose to side with Russia and began the revolt with the aim to detach the territory of Eastern Anatolia from the Ottoman Empire for your to-be free-of-Turks ethnically-pure-and-clean Armenian state. And you failed! You killed almost 1 million defenseless Turkish children, women and elderly while their fathers, husbands and sons heroically fought on the frontlines of WWI. This was very typical of your dirty genes - stabbing on the back, fighting with the children.
However, you miscalculated the consequences. You thought Russians came there forever and Turkish army was kicked out forever, didn't you? My ass! The glorious Turkish army returned and fucked your mother! Call this genocide - who gives a shit? If it was a genocide, then it is the only justified genocide in human history which I fully applaud! Your traitor grandparents deserved to be fucked!
Thanks for the retaliation of the glorious Turkish Army, today Turks happily live in their homes. If your idiotic grandparents had some wits, they would have lived there too, side by side with the Turks. But they wanted to live without the Turks, in "Armenia". Fuck you! Now get the fuck out of Anatolia, and live in California. You will never return to Anatolia. You lost those lands FOREVER!!!
Guess why? Because you are fucking L O S E R S!!!
Oh thank God: Oliver in such a moron, it's sort of possible he could be a genocide denier.
Canned laughter, says it all!
It's called a studio audience.
Only Turks deny the Armenian Genocide
@John Oliver et all- All those who recognize the so-called genocide claim come 50 to 100+ years after the war. Remember Iraq and the weapons on "mass destruction"? Never proven and got us into a mess! All recognition of the So-called genocide has been financed! Uruguay(Who had no diplomatic or geographical ties) was the first country to financially adopt the claim 50 years after the war! France (1998), Russia (1995) adopted the claim and they were a part of the war during the time that the Armenians claim such an incident occurred but did not say a single thing regarding during the Paris Peace Conference. All other countries had been lobbied Note that Britain, France and Russia armed and backed Armenian militants who were trying to create a Greater Armenia. Armenia after WW1 in 1920 was annexed as part of the Soviet Union and later given Independence in 1991, Armenians claimed oppression during the Soviet rule. Britain claims there never was a genocide! Before incriminating the Turks or anyone of anything remember hear-say is not admissible in a court of law and bribery is illegal!
I just watched this horrible video and didn't enjoy any bit of it. I am Armenian and take this very offensive! Imagine if 1.5 million of your race or culture gotten tortured and slaughtered by Turks would you still be up on set cracking up jokes? This is pathetic I am going to make sure this video gets taken down asap
George Clony called it a genocide, it must be a genocide
Get your facts right. Turkey does not deny or acknowladge the Armenian genocide but insist in an independent investigation by historician and has opened their archives in this matter and requested the Armenian prime minister several times to open their archives in order to let the historicians do their work. Erdogan has said many times that Turkey will face the past whatever the outcome of the investigation would be but will not accept any decision taken by foreign governments without an investigation...
Muslim Empire did so no genocide
3.5 bengalies killed by pakistan 1971, that noooo its just muslim way of war
10 million indian died in Exodus of 1947, Still people Ask questions why do we hate pakistan?
it the tragedy
just learned about this today. never heard of it before. very tragic . may those souls rest in peace.
Oliver you are Amazing
Israel doesn't believe it's a genocide either.
genocide?what?it is lol! Never Turkey kill them.
Armenians kill peaceful Azerbaijans in 1918…1992
Why is this TWIT commenting on something this SERIOUS? This isn't FUNNY, you pathetic little Terry Gilliam wannabe..some things aren't MEANT for COMEDY
Haha didnt know Obama was this damn weak, fucking cuck. Now I can fully say he is the reason why syria had their massive civilwar and also why isis didnt get destroyed right away, weak fucking clown. Oh and now you got another clown in the white house...when will another real president with actual balls be your president again? Like you know..washington and others
"That's too glib." John, your Britishness is showing
John Oliver would have been ripping on Cenk Uygur this entire episode if he happened to be a Republican.
To be fair. Most people in America don't know about the millions of people murdered by the US government in the last few decades. A global genocide if you will...
If you defend the US then you are also responsible for genocide and the murder of babies.
How many comments are there to be read here on youtube saying "[insert person/tv show/movie/music] brought me here" ..??
No fan of the Kardashians but why someone should be mocked for knowing about the Armenian genocide through them is beyond me.
No fan of John Oliver either. Showing a laughing girl in this context is kind of saying "what a dumb and ignorant girl"" yet John Oliver wants the audience to laugh at this girl for reasons congruent with the way her ignorance is framed. Vile tv.
