Former MSNBC anchor who is the co-founder and main host of the left-leaning online media outlet ‘The Young Turks’, that according to him is the “biggest online news show in the world”. It’s not! Uygur, a communist, progressive racist, is a proponent of legalized bestiality and an Armenian holocaust denier with an affinity for common use of the “N” word. In 2019 Uygur announced his intention to run for the U.S. House as a Democrat to fill the seat vacated by California Democrat and white supremacist Katie Hill. Also, he was endorsed by Bernie Sanders but retracted it after facing backlash.
Cenk Uygur is an agnostic and ex-Muslim.
Despite good ratings while Uygur hosted MSNBC Live for six months, he was not offered a permanent role. According to his version of events, his departure from the network was because MSNBC management considered him too combative towards “those in power” and wanted him to “tone it down”.
Cenk Uygur and Kyle Kulinski of The Young Turks network were on the board of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Justice Democrats PAC in early December 2017, but Uygur was forced out of the organization on Dec. 22, 2017 after what Saikat Chakrabarti called “extremely disturbing sexist and racist statements” Uygur made in the early 2000s were unearthed.
Uyger opposed unionization of Young Turks employees.
On December 12, 2006, Uygur referred to Jerusalem, Israel as a “pain in the world’s ass” and stated that his plan to solving the Israel-“Palestine” conflict is to bulldoze the city. On March 7, 2019, he hypocritically claimed in a Twitter post that right-wing evangelical support of Israel is “anti-Semitism”, as well as calling it the “worst anti-Semitism in the world”, which drew heavy criticism against him for his anti-Semitic and anti-Christian comments.
Uygur, a supporter of Bernie Sanders, is angry that the mainstream press doesn’t point out Biden’s mental decline and does not call out Biden’s lies (Joe Biden lying about being arrested with Nelson Mandela, etc.).
Cenk Uyger says Biden is not going to win against Trump due to his mental decline and due to his lies being called out by the political right.
