Andre Gerolymatos And Greek historiography

This evening I picked up a copy of the Greek-American newspaper , The National Herald and found another weekly op-ed from Andre Gerolymatos, chair of Hellenic Studies at Simon Fraser University in Canada.

The article was juxtaposition above another weekly op-ed from another Greek diaspora academic named Dr. Kousoulas, who years ago I had issue with over his insistence of the word "riot" to describe the very real pogrom administered by the Turkish goverment on the Greeks of Constantinople in 1955, nevertheless, his is another case of academic prostitution which I hope to address in another future blog entry.

Andre Gerolymatos, has the distinction of sitting in a university chair , made possible by the generous donations of the local Greek diaspora community Vancouver B.C. in Canada, a community which hilariously simply wanted a teacher who could teach their clod kids the modern Greek language, which Andre Gerolymatos, is entirely ignorant of, a major deficiency for a "scholar" who is hired to focus on Greek historiography.

Gerolymatos's tomes which almost entirely rely on other second hand and sometimes first hand sources in English, have the distinction of being reviewed by the Jewish-Zionist Wall Street Journal, and his presence has been featured as key speaker for Onassis foundation events and AHI events, to give play by plays on the Greek revolution and the influence of Western Classicists, and other such tired subjects.

The slant of Gerolymatos comes with a strong liberal and democratic bias, as in this editorial urging a separation of church and state in Greece , for example.

The UJA ( United Jewish Appeal) was also happy to carry his editorial calling for a Turkey in the EU !

It should come to no surprise to anyone knowing the system in the West, that a "historian" must agree to the ruling order's view of history and Gerolymatos is no exception. On many internet flora regarding the Armenian Genocide and the Pontic Greek Genocide , Turkish Genocide-deniers consistently cite Gerolymatos's book on the Balkans (generously reviewed by Jewish-Zionist and Genocide-denialist Wall Street Journal)

The Balkan Wars by Andre Gerolymatos (Greek-Canadian!) drums up second hand figures , often relying on pro-Turkish Genocide-denialist authors such as Stanford Shaw and Justin McCarthy in order to accuse Greeks of war atrocities against Turks!

What a terrible shame that the Greek diaspora funds such a POS.

What is a Andre Gerolymatos ? Is it a sickness? Is it a mental disease? Don't you think it's time that this rotten, sick individual gets flushed down the toilet, where the rest of the waste lies?

I took a look at his book on Amazon, and came across a fantastic review:

"The inclusion of several pages of photographs of the civilian victims of the 1999 NATO attack on Serbia in a book that otherwise barely mentions the Kosovo war betrays the author's pro-Serbia bias, implying that Serbs are human beings too. This is doubleplusungood, comrades, and smacks of thoughtcrime."

Greece suffered because of the soviet religion. Russia did the same to Georgia on the Black Sea in 1776 that it wanted to do to Greece. We would be like Georgia if Brittain and France did not love Greece so much. Abandon the sick Russian religion.
