Ana’s support of Cenk Uygur isn’t any different from a Jewish person supporting a German using the name “nazi” who denies the Holocaust . Who could defend a person’s reputation knowing the repulsive fact he/she denied the Holocaust?
3/31 2012 Ana wrote to me in response to an email I sent regarding Young Turk’s Cenk Uygur’s denial of the Armenian Genocide..

Get in line with all the rest of the genocide deniers and supporters. Their judgement of me is often a failure as is their abilities to defend their denial.I regretted most seeing how congruent your reply an one of a Genocide denier was.I to am so readily attacked especially by people who think my disapproval of their denial of a Genocide is an attack personally on them…I can not help you Ana because I can not condone your acceptance of another person’s inaccuracies. You must deal with it yourself and condone within yourself.
It seems to me you have spent your life demonizing folks like me whom simply suggested you reexamine some of the roles you are playing, then decide if they are ones others can look up to..
Diligently trying to impress Armenians like me with how dedicated, and loyal you are in preserving our culture, history, and heritage while simultaneously defending a genocide denier is quite an oxymoron don’t you think?
A lot of “nice” Turks are in denial but they are not getting famous by the fact they do not recognize, or are they taking advantage of that fact or undermining the Armenian genocide by claiming it was a massacre. Gee, I could go on it seems.
Here it is in a nutshell Ana – you will not hesitate to bash/condemn a Holocaust denier on your show.
I find that a massive double standard.
You will lose, and so will your show. That is if you hope for an intelligent audience .
Oh and you are right you do not owe me any explanations, as I do not owe you any in return. But if anything know I am by far a nationalist. I am but a worker towards a better humanity.
My good friends who are Turkish would look to your callous remarks as unrefined and tactless. Believe it or not they condemn Cenk’s denial.
As I explained my claim stems from reputable organizations like ANCA who say he is a denier, and have no record of his ever coming forward with any recognition. If there is something even remotely close to one send me it, I will be most open to it. Thank you for replying..
Ana has of yet responded with any proof Cenk has retracted his denial.
I am disappointed in Ana’s reply I won’t lie.
I disagree strongly with her belief that her success is something Armenians are suppose to be proud of. As if she is in a position to make a difference, or her position is of some great importance. She daily supports a genocide denialist. Is Armenians not successful enough people and therefore she is an exception in her eyes…
I am an educator, who also went to college. I consider myself successful as well but with one slight difference to Ana’s success. I don’t work with any open Genocide deniers, and if I did I would not hesitate to tell them I disapprove it. No matter how kind they are. Teachers can be very kind people too.. Also, it is worth mentioning that not once did it ever occur to me my achievements are supposed to be automatically admired just because I am Armenian.. Sounds pretty darn self centered to me..
The hate in people often look for an escape goat – someone they can blame it on. For Ana I was such person. But she should know, it is her hate of me that makes me the bad guy here.
Armenians like me who insist on legal terms being used to describe genocides would just simply be justified. Not these bad people trying to hurt nice people like ‘Cenk”..
Although, hate will always exist, it is Ana’s hate for people like me who only hand them a mirror that will be our planet’s downfall. You know that expression, “don’t hate the messenger”..
I suggest Ana take responsibility for her own actions. Stop hiding under hate.
I think “what a perfectly great, and honest relationship Ana could have with Cenk if it was based on truth” It would be admirable . Now that would be something for the world to look up to. Now as they are they can only disgust people..
