The tactics used by Genocide Deniers

Here are 12 common tactics used by genocide deniers. 1. Question and minimize the statistics. 2. Attack the motivations of the truth-tellers. 3. Claim that the deaths were inadvertent 4. Emphasize the strangeness of the victims 5. Rationalize the deaths as the result of tribal conflict 6. Blame “out of control” forces for committing the killings 7. Avoid antagonizing the genocidists, who might walk out of “the peace process.” 8. Justify denial in favor of current economic interests. 9. Claim that the victims are receiving good treatment, 10. Claim that what is going on doesn’t fit the definition of genocide. 11. Blame the victims. 12. Say that peace and reconciliation are more important that blaming people for genocide For the details around those tactics please visit :source

Sound familiar?

When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist. When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat. When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; I was not a trade unionist. When the Janjaweed came for African tribal peoples of Darfur I denied it; I was not from Darfur. When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.

BrendanYou have it

Brendan You have it backwards. The act of squashing down totalitarian dictators or totalitarian laws or totalitarian militia such as Al Bashir's who enable slavery and genocide, is not a totalitarian act, it's an act of humanity , its an act of the people for the people and it certainly makes the world a much better place. A few quick examples of squashing down inhumanity - the squashing of slavery in the USA, the squashing of Milosevic, the squashing of Nazism . Al Bashir is denying everything. He is denying that there are more than 5 000 people murdered in the conflict when under his order there are over 200 000 civilian people murdered and he knows it. This is inhumane monstrous denial indeed this denial which denies people's right to live , is what you should call TOTALITARIAN and criminal. This denial is the same denial which leaves more people to die by starvation because their situation is being DENIED . This denial, which gives the time enabling the monstrous will of a few to end the lives of millions, needs to be squashed down by the power of International Law and Justice defending human rights and Life itself before it squashes you and me and the rest of the world in different place and different time. Saving the lives of people, fighting for their human rights, fighting for the equality of all people, off all colors and religions and ethnicity , fighting for their basic rights and needs such as to live, to work, to make a living, to eat, to get medical care in their own land under their own roofs in respect of their right to be free people instead of slaves, sex slaves, refugees and dead bodies, fighting for that by squashing down racism and the enablers or supporters of Genocide who show no remorse and deny their responsibility in the face of the Law which defends humanity, all that is something that people, who want a better world, should believe in.

A denier is an enabler.

Can a denial be benign if it enables a malignant consequence? Not hardly. In this case, those who deny, delay, and defer are "accomplices after the fact" and encourage the perpetuation of genocide. IM

Hard evidence of 'genocide' in Darfur? I haven't seen any yet

In this case, there is no real or hard evidence of 'genocide' in Darfur - in fact, there is more than enough evidence to suggest that what we are witnessing is another brutal African civil war.

Huh?

Using totalitarian language to describe a better world order? That's odd. How exactly are the denials inhumane? The crimes against humanity certainly are, but the denials or questions you are describing, as denials are actually benign, are they not?

Robert Check this whole

Robert Check this whole website when you have time and forward it to people who want to make this world a better place. The people of the world are standing up one by one and soon any monstrous inhumane denials will be squashed down under the power of Justice. It's not up to corrupt politicians only anymore, it is also up to people like you and I . Judgement day will come for al Bashir and the supporters of his regime and acts like it came for the Nazis. http://www.judgmentongenocide.com/hammond.html#video

Darfur's Genocide

LW, Here is another tactic used by Genocide negationists: 13. Deny a Genocide is in process in Darfur (or Sierra Leone; or Rwanda; or Somalia) to prevent White neocolonialists' intrusion into African affairs for economic reasons.

Genocide in Sierra Leone & Somalia? Where's the evidence?

"Here is another tactic used by Genocide negationists: 13. Deny a Genocide is in process in Darfur (or Sierra Leone; or Rwanda; or Somalia) to prevent White neocolonialists' intrusion into African affairs for economic reasons." Robert This is precisely the sort of brain-dead dogma I've been arguing against - Robert takes one look at Africa, and all he can see is 'genocide'. He takes a cursory look at Somalia, and comes to the conclusion that the people and government of Somalia are genocidal, even though he has absolutely nothing in the way of evidence to show us in the forum - yet again. Robert, the U.S. Department of State has a great word for people like yourself who think nothing of exaggerating the extent of conflicts in African nations - 'prognosticators'. As far as their concerned, the 'fact that many prognosticators overemphasize the degree to which violent deaths contribute to large-scale mortality in a region as big and diffuse as Darfur continues to result in grossly overestimated projections of overall deaths'. In other words, prognosticators simply pluck the figures for high mortality rates from thin air, with little in the way of evidence to back up their claims - which is precisely what Robert appears to be doing. Genocide in Sierra Leone & Somalia? My arse.
