      I don’t know Armond personally, but I have met him one time a long time ago. From an initial impression, he seemed like a genuinely moral and stand up guy. I don’t know who you are, but obviously from your venomous comment, you are far from classy enough to even be on these message boards.

      No Armenian ever teaches their child to hate others, however, we do teach our children to be very proud of our roots, our way of life, and culture that extends back nearly 6000 years prior to the formation of any modern nations, religions, and societies. And perhaps it is this very notion of culture and heritage that imbeciles such as yourself lack and you try to make up for it by coming onto news outlets like this and attempt to blemish upstanding Armenians like Armond in our community.

      Individuals such as yourself are like a virus, a pathogenic pestilence that seeks to harm our community members with virulent comments and empty bravado. Luckily, individuals such as myself are the cure, a vaccine against the idiots of the world such as yourself.

      Do the world a favor you microbe, find the nearest moving vehicle, preferably a truck, and stand in front of it. The world will be better for it. Class dismissed.

      Good luck on your campaign Dr. Aghakhanian, I wish you best of luck, you have my vote. Don’t let small minds and small IQs of single celled organisms dissuade you in any way.
