Why are we talking about ancient history when Hulk Hogan and the nWo are still being protected after the 9/11 attacks?

If there is actually a Twitter war between pro- and anti-Khan factions that would be somewhat entertaining. If it's just one lady practicing her ranting skills, not.

Uhh I'm pretty sure nobody glorifies him.  I've never seen it anyway.  He was a vicious warlord, to be respected and feared in his time, he wasn't Mr. Rogers.

People seriously need to get the f*ck out and get a life. Sh*t like this is why I hate social media.

If you have time to waste on this kind of argument and are serious about it? Just, Jesus Christ.

Why so down on Islamic invaders in India?   Sounds racist and casteist.

No, it should be torn down because that land could be better used as a Dave & Buster's.

It's worth noting the Mongols were pretty tolerant of foreign religions, even going so far as giving tax benefits to clergy.
Dude wasn't a saint or anything but I don't think a comparison to Islamic radicals (or Christian for that matter) is a strong position at all.

It's Trending on Twitter.

And it does not matter. Not in the least.

She's not wrong, and she seems to be saying this in response to an inaccurate comparison. So her comments are justified.

Who is actually bothered by reading someone say Genghis khan was a vicious barbarian? He was. If reading that bothers you then you needed to read it.

Remember when he would line up the people from villages he conquered and murder everyone taller than the hub of a wagon wheel? Good times

Because when people forget what he did, they start denying it happened.  Bad enough they forget what happened 75 years ago.

Someone just heard of genghis khan huh.  But do go on and tell us what everyone has known for centuries as if you were the first one to discover it...

If you see a Russian with wide cheekbones, they definitely had Mongol invaders back in their bloodline.

FunkJunkie: Dude wasn't a saint or anything but I don't think a comparison to Islamic radicals (or Christian for that matter) is a strong position at all.


Islam was identical in different periods of time. At one point, they didn't care about converting Jews or Christians because it cut into their tax revenue. And actually, everyone got along fairly well during some of these times.

At one time in history, some people celebrated when Christianity fell to Islam in their land.

But times change, and Muslims are no longer saints or anything. And for that matter, Christians are no longer saints or anything. And a lot of people are glad to see both of them fall.

I would assume he's still popular in Mongolia since it was the only time the Mongols/Mongolians were ever relevant.

/they are the exception

History is mostly just one monumental asshole persecuting people after another.   And yea, I've never quite understood how time gives atrocity and murder legitimacy.

Priya_27_: THREAD: Genghis Khan did to central Asia what islamic invaders did to India, maybe worse. He single handedly killed 11% of world population at the time. Yet some want to glorify him as a hero conquerer. That's your personal choice but objectively, Genghis Khan was a barbarian.


Yes! This Russian who believes Islam and the Mongols are responsible for so much murder agrees that we should cancel it!!
