Herman Cohen’s Second “Coup” in Ethiopia? We Demand an Apology!
Editor’s note: In 2016, Mr. Herman Cohen, former assistant secretary of state for Africa, blamed Tigrian domination, fake federalism for the crisis in Ethiopia. On June 24, 2019, he recklessly tweeted ( his twitter handle is @CohenOnAfrica): “Failed coup in #Ethiopia‘s Amhara state was an attempt by ethnic nationalists to restore Amhara hegemony over all of Ethiopia that existed for several centuries prior to 1991. That dream is now permanently dead,” as a remark to what has unfolded in Ethiopia over last weekend. Needless to say, his statement outraged Ethiopians. Professor Almariam has responded to Mr. Cohen and he shared his blog post which was published on January 26, 2019, with us and we are pleased to feature his writing.

How true the saying, “There is no fool like an old fool.”
My readers know I don’t tolerate old fools.
Of course, there are old fools; and there are offensive and villainous old fools.
Herman Cohen is an offensive and villainous old fool.
On June 24, 2019, Herman Cohen tweeted:
Failed coup in #Ethiopia’s Amhara state was an attempt by ethnic nationalists to restore Amhara hegemony over all of Ethiopia that existed for several centuries prior to 1991. That dream is now permanently dead.
To me, what Herman Cohen tweeted is pure and simple hate speech.
Demonizing an entire group as ethnic hegemons is hate speech.
If someone of Herman Cohen’s stature have said such an outrageous thing about a religious or ethnic group in the United States, there would have been hell to pay.
But Herman Cohen thinks he can demonize and defame Amhara people and get away with it.
Don’t think so!
Herman Cohen will be held accountable in the court of world public opinion!
But who is Herman Cohen?
The short answer is Herman Cohen is a nitwit on twitter.
But who really is Herman Cohen? Read more...
