By Gregory H. Stanton

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
