As was to be expected, the fallout from Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments and the Democrat Party refusing to admit that she is anti-Semitic has not yet subsided, but one particularly idiotic Leftist has the worst take I’ve seen so far about this whole thing: that Christians are the real anti-Semites.
Of course, the moron I’m talking about is Young Turks host Cenk Uygur, who tweeted: “You know what’s REAL anti-semitism? Right-wing Evangelical Christians supporting Israel because they think it will bring about the End Times where all of the Jews die. Worst anti-Semitism in the world!”
You know how I often read something someone says or tweets and I say how I am so ready to have my fun with them? Well, none of those instances compare with how much havoc I am about to rain down on this idiot.
But before I begin, allow me to show you some of the things other Twitter users have written in response to this guy:
“And there ya go… I was waiting to see who the first hateful moron was gonna be to make this argument,” wrote one Mr. Larry O’Connor.
“You named your show after the people that were responsible for the Armenian genocide. Shut your mouth, jackass,” said Arthur Schwartz (and a bit of a spoiler for later down this article: I will get back to that topic of the Armenian genocide momentarily).
“Many Christians are of Jewish ethnicity and ancestry. Jesus and ALL the apostles were Jewish. Nearly all of the early Christians were Jewish. Why would Christians wish death on brethren? This couldn’t be a more moronic tweet but I’m sure he will surprise me,” wrote Chris Loesch, husband of NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch.
“As a Jew, I am grateful every day for my Evangelical Christian friends who support our shared history and *defend* the Jewish people and our right to our homeland. Without their support there would be no one else on Earth standing by us as genocidal masses relentlessly attack,” wrote Chad Felix Greene.
“Buffoonery. He’s going to tell us what the ‘worst anti-Semitism in the world’ is? I’ll tell you what the worst anti-Semitism is: the one that used anti-Semitic tropes to systematically murder six million Jews. THAT, Cenk Uygur is the WORST. Don’t dare speak again for Jews!” said a Mr. Dov Hikind.
Now, I promised you earlier just what exactly my take was regarding this whole thing and I promised you a scathing analysis and dissection of this idiotic rhetoric, so here it is.
Do you want to know what real anti-Semitism is? The kind that Dov just mentioned: the one where an aggressively anti-Semitic socialist captured, imprisoned and killed 6 million Jews.
Do you want to know what real anti-Semitism is? Iran constantly declaring and swearing they will wipe Israel off the map. It’s Hamas committing jihad against the Jews on a daily basis at Israel’s border in the Gaza strip.
It’s Syria and other nations constantly launching missiles at Israel in the hopes of killing as many Jews as possible and weaken the nation’s resolve. It’s Ilhan Omar accusing politicians of dual loyalties to Israel and only supporting Israel for the money. It’s people claiming, without proof or reason, that Israel is “occupying” the land on which they reside – the land that was PROMISED TO THEM BY GOD!
Not that I expect this idiot to recognize what anti-Semitism is when his entire show is named after a revolutionary group in the early 20th century that led to the slaughter of 1.5 million Christian Armenians.
In case you do not know what the Armenian genocide is because the education system is so corrupt that any historical event that victimizes Christians must not be covered so as to maintain the narrative that Christians are oppressors, allow me to give you a relatively short history lesson about the entire thing.
Armenia was an independent nation for a decent amount of time, even becoming the first nation in the world to make Christianity its official religion in the 4th century A.D. However, the Armenian people often were ruled by an entirely different nation, or empire, as was more commonly considered at the time. During the 15th century, Armenia became part of the Ottoman Empire.
To no one’s surprise, the Ottoman Empire was largely led by Muslims who would often treat the typically-Christian Armenians like less than second-class citizens. Christians had to pay higher taxes and were subjected to very restrictive and minimal political and overall legal rights.
Interestingly enough, despite their hardships, Armenians actually thrived anyway. They were typically better educated and were wealthier than the rest of the Empire, particularly their Turkish neighbors, who grew resentment of them because of their success.
So when the Ottoman Empire crumbled by the end of the 19th century when Turkish Sultan Abdul Hamid II was dethroned, a revolutionary group called the Young Turks sought to reform Turkey into a more modern constitutional monarchy. The Armenians saw this as a sign of better things to come, but in fact, the opposite occurred.
The Young Turks sought to “Turkify” the once mighty Empire, which meant that any non-Turks, including and especially counting Christian non-Turks, were seen as a threat to their vision.
The beginning of World War I didn’t help the Armenians at all either. Turkey entered the Great War on the side of the Germans and Austro-Hungarians (you know, the baddies?). Turkish military leaders, according to History.com, argued that “the Armenians were traitors: If they thought they could win independence if the Allies were victorious, this argument went, the Armenians would be eager to fight for the enemy.”
Which wasn’t inaccurate. The Armenians organized battalions that would help the Russians fighting the Turks. But then again, can you blame them for wanting to fight for Turkey’s enemies when Turkey and the Ottoman Empire both subjected the Armenians to horrible social justice laws (and the actual social justice, not the actual insanity of the Left today) and made the Armenians out to be scum of the earth and literal infidels?
But in any case, we move on to the day the genocide is widely known to have begun: April 24th, 1915. On that day, the Turkish government “arrested and executed several hundred Armenian intellectuals,” according to History.
“After that, ordinary Armenians were turned out of their homes and sent on death marches through the Mesopotamian desert without food or water. Frequently, the marchers were stripped naked and forced to walk under the scorching sun until they dropped dead. People who stopped to rest were shot. At the same time, the Young Turks created a ‘Special Organization,’ which in turn organized ‘killing squads’ or ‘butcher battalions’ to carry out, as one officer put it, ‘the liquidation of the Christian elements.’”
“These killing squads were often made up of murderers and other ex-convicts. They drowned people in rivers, threw them off cliffs, crucified them and burned them alive. In short order, the Turkish countryside was littered with Armenian corpses. Records show that during this ‘Turkification’ campaign, government squads also kidnapped children, converted them to Islam and gave them to Turkish families. In some places, they raped women and forced them to join Turkish ‘harems’ or serve as slaves. Muslim families moved into the homes of deported Armenians and seized their property.”
Reports say that there were about 2 million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire at the time of the massacre, and in 1922, when the genocide was over, around 388,000 Armenians remained. That’s roughly north of 1.5 million Christian Armenians massacred by the Young Turks.
And what does Cenk name his show after? The very entity that was responsible for that genocide.
Imagine someone creating a show named after Nazi Germany. It’s about as bad as that.
So why am I not surprised at the sort of animosity Cenk shows with regard to Evangelical Christians? After all, he named his show after the group responsible for the massacre of over a million of us.
Do you want to know what is real bigotry? That. Precisely that. Trying to say that Christians are the real anti-Semites because our support of Israel is as strong as it is because of the prophecy of the End Times as detailed in the book of Revelations.
Yes, we Christians believe that Israel must solely belong to the Jewish people for the End Times prophecy to be fulfilled. But let me remind you of something about God: HE GETS TO DECIDE WHO GETS INTO HIS KINGDOM!
It’s not rare for a Jewish person to convert to Christianity. Those that do will be saved while those who do not will, unfortunately, perish. That’s applicable to LITERALLY EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER LIVED, CURRENTLY LIVES, AND WILL EVER LIVE IN THE FUTURE.
By saying that the “only” reason Christians support Israel is because of the End Times prophecy that will not include anyone who has not been saved by Christ, he is not only attacking Christians but GOD HIMSELF.
It’s no different from someone on Facebook whining at you that “if God really was as merciful or loving as you say He is, He would just let anyone into Heaven no matter what” which is a gross insult to the character of God and an incredibly asinine argument made by someone who truly has no idea what they are talking about (and I speak from experience having actually encountered someone like this on Facebook long ago).
The Jewish people are God’s chosen people. The land of Israel belongs squarely to them. But those who have converted and will convert to Christianity, recognizing the deity of Jesus Christ, who is Lord, to them belongs the Kingdom of God.
That, by no means, does it mean we Christians are in any shape manner or form at odds with Judaism. Matter of fact Jesus Himself was Jewish as He also worshipped the same exact God as the Jews. God the Son worshipped, in the flesh, God the Father, who is also the God of Abraham, of Isaac, of David and of all of Israel. And the twelve apostles were ALL Jewish themselves, including Paul, who did not become an apostle until after Christ’s death at the cross, when he would persecute and execute Christians.
There is a reason we call ours a “Judeo-Christian” culture because the two share similar tenets. Christians believe everything the Jews do up to the point where Christ is involved. We worship the same exact God, albeit under typically (but not always) different laws and rituals. Christians find their roots in Judaism. As such, we are allies for as long as the world is here. Jews gave us the law.
It’s absolutely ridiculous to insist that someone SUPPORTING Israel is anti-Semitic because of End Times prophecies where GOD GETS TO DECIDE WHAT’S WHAT!
REAL anti-Semitism, as I covered earlier, is what Hitler did, what Ilhan Omar continually does, what Iran continually does, what the Democrat Party is slowly coming to accept and everything that has to do with the systemic destruction or oppression of the Jewish people.
And a REAL bigot is someone who names their show after the radical Islamic group that was solely responsible for one of the worst genocides in world history.
Again, I’m not surprised at all at Cenk’s hatred of Christians. He essentially supports an act that sought to eradicate them from a nation entirely.
But let me tell you something else: God is not one to delight in His children’s suffering. To those whom He’ll have mercy, He’ll have mercy. To those whom He’ll execute justice, He will execute justice.
“I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you; and all the families of the earth will be blessed through you.”
