THE SIZE OF CENK’S EGO IS THE SIZE OF TEXAS OR CLOSE TO IT.
Cenk Uygur is one of the craziest personalities that I’ve ever seen. He probably has the largest ego I’ve ever seen too. I think he has knocked people over with the size of his ego alone. He just has a very large personality. He’s bombastic and can be belligerent. I’ve seen him bully people by talking non-stop and not letting people speak if they don’t agree with him. He even told one MRA activist he was interviewing on The Young Turks that she should make him a ham sandwich and of course wouldn’t let her talk, cause she wasn’t agreeing with him. Here’s a snippet of that interview in this video here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tP7ad36dlE He could have been calm and just let her make her points, but he didn’t want to do that. I think he was kind of annoyed that she knew more about that history than he did.
He named his son Prometheus Maximus, which is an odd and outlandish name to choose and only someone with a large ego would decide and proclaim for that matter. Cenk explains why he chose the name Prometheus in this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hdzMEsDypU He wants his son to be somebody! His wife was not involved in naming their son. I hope she’s not mainly a submissive wife, but with his large ego maybe she just gives into him often.
The only other person in the spotlight I can think of with a larger ego or the same size ego that I know of is Donald Trump. I talked to a person online who saw Cenk at an event and she was stunned to see how self-centered he was. She said Cenk only cares about Cenk. She thought he seemed very much like an egomaniac and he needed so much attention, obviously.
Cenk is so crazy that he thought a man in Indonesia who had warts all over his body, which made him look like a tree proved evolution. ??? This man was in pain and suffering and Cenk thought it was all fun! ?? Here’s the video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6G-tpPRhOw
Uygur wrote on his facebook page back in August of 2015 about how awesome he is and how he’s a great basketball player even though people are surprised he can play so well, because of his massive weight. Also he said how awesome his show and network is and how great his health is despite being so overweight. The man loves patting himself on the back a lot and praising himself. It’s so over the top of course. I think his mantra is “I’M AWESOME!!”
He acts like the best man on the planet like he’s a peacock spreading his feathers. He’s got a lot of pazazz, craziness, passion and hubris. Here’s a video showing Cenk being crazy, passionate, and the size of his ego:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSOPotVrang He acts like he’s Gods gift to the world. I’m sure he can’t help having a large ego, but it’s just strange and amusing. I think he was born with a big ego (maybe he was spoiled too) and it’s only gotten even larger since his show/network The Young Turks has gotten more popular.
MAD AS HELL DOCUMENTARY DOCUMENTED CENK’S LARGE EGO.
I saw his documentary Mad as Hell and that was something. His longtime childhood friends and recent friends said Cenk was belligerent and he believes what he wants to believe and everyone else be damned as he laughs in peoples faces. They basically threw him under the bus saying that he’s essentially a belligerent/bombastic asshole. They said people either love Cenk or can’t stand him. Steve Oh his longtime friend and who works at TYT didn’t know what to make of Cenk at first since Cenk was all about his way or no way kind of personality. Steve kept clear of him for some time as a kid and then came around to him. Cenk’s own father named him the word for battle in Turkish (this was the perfect name choice).
Cenk had a little show called The Young Turk Show on a public access cable channel in Virginia in the mid 90s. He was belligerent and arrogant on that little dinky show. People would call into The Young Turk show and give him a piece of their minds. Most butted heads with him and were annoyed with him (this is when he was a big republican and really hated president Clinton and loved President George H.W. Bush etc). Others liked his style and Cenk loved what he was doing. He realized being an asshole corporate lawyer was not for him and walked away from that at the anger, hurt, and disgust of his father. Cenk was about him him him and wanted his dad’s financial support. ?? Well, I don’t think that happened.
He made it onto a local Miami Florida T.V. news network in the later 90s to 2000 and he didn’t do that well talking about this and that (plus he was always sweating). People were stunned by his loud mouth etc. He even sexually harassed Connie Chung in the late 90s. He said to Chung when he was interviewing her briefly on the street at an event and said she was sexy in an obnoxious and playful way (poor Chung).
His former co-host Jill Pike on The Young Turks radio show on Sirius and internet Youtube show left in 2007 cause, he didn’t think she was smart enough to talk about politics. I think he blatantly said Jill is too stupid to talk about politics. He deemed she could only handle the light and fluffy newsy news and didn’t give her much of a chance. He was just being his crazy old school sexist self it seemed or appeared. That’s why she left the show due to Cenk not letting her talk about political news stories. He is just such an obnoxious and strange character.
The documentary just shows his drive and large ego. He rallies his show with football coach speeches and says his show is the best and is number one. He basically acts like his show is a football team.
THE YOUNG TURKS GETS SO MANY STORIES WRONG.
The Young Turks gets so many stories wrong that the show has turned into Fox news left and at times has turned into a satire (unintentionally of course). They just have their slant and at times don’t bother to really research stories deeply. Of course he cannot admit he’s wrong/his show is wrong. I don’t think he has admitted to fully being wrong. He rarely has admitted to being partially wrong and then has a good excuse or reason for it and he’ll say he’s still mainly right any ways. He thinks he’s been right about all foreign policy and would have given more weapons to the rebels in Syria, which as we know now would have given more weapons to Isis… He’s been for all wars except for Vietnam and Iraq, which looks crazy, since the military could have had special forces to get Bin Laden without needing a war. He just has this front of being right and strong and that he’s never wrong EVER!!!
Cenk Uygur said the judge in South Carolina at the Dylan Roof trial said he told people to forgive Dylan Roof for killing their loved ones and said how crazy that was for the judge to say. Cenk’s co-host Ben Mankiewicz said that judge never told anyone in the court room to forgive Dylan Roof. Cenk wouldn’t shut up for a moment and said the judge told those people to forgive Dylan Roof and would not back down! Ben was trying to fight back somewhat and then backed down and he wasn’t looking happy. That little exchange just didn’t make it onto a video on TYT(and yes the judge never told anyone to forgive Dylan Roof). He can be so forceful! Actually that exchange got caught by a Youtuber named Atheism-Is-Unstoppable and the title of the video is Cenk Uygur Doubles Down on his Racism And Lies. I’ll show it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1GFafzTQMk
His show has gotten so many stories wrong that it’s rather well known. He just never cares to fix this problem or just doesn’t see it. He does have a certain mind set and slant and looks at reality with certain lenses that if the reality doesn’t quite fit he’ll alter it. The show is just so bad that the hosts have forgotten at times and will most likely still forget far often enough to say major details of stories and even have forgotten/ will forget to say, which town a story happened in a state. Here’s an example of Ana talking about a story and not saying, which town in Massachusetts it happened in(she’s done this hiccup since she started back in 2007): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-cKgy6R5IA Why he’s okay with all of that just seems like he’s crazy. Cenk and his hosts acts like they are always right no matter what and have their strong front. I guess I could write a 10 page blog about all of the stories they’ve gotten wrong. Here’s video proof of TYT getting stories wrong by the Youtuber, Paranoid Conspiracy Theorist and New World order and the video is titled The Young Turks are dishonest part 7: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3R1iloeQIPs Here’s another video of his titled The Young Turks are dishonest part 2 :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JjzznBg0z4 Now obviously The Young Turks must have taken down Paranoid Conspiracy Theorists and New World order’s youtube channel for copyright violations, which is sad since he was doing such a good job exposing them.
Cenk misquoted Sam Harris and won’t back down from those misquotes or slander. Sam Harris has said Muslim extremists and has said a vast majority of Muslims have pernicious beliefs and Cenk will say, Sam said ALL Muslims. Sam has said he’d never do a nuclear first strike on the Muslim world and Cenk has said the opposite. The Youtuber Paranoid Conspiracy Theorist and New world order caught Cenk in his video The Young Turks are dishonest Part 5 (i wish his videos were not taken down)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RufNP0f3sPc Another video by The Noble Savage has showed Cenk’s getting Sam Harris and Bill Maher wrong in October 2014. The title of the video is The Young Turks vs Sam Harris -The Evidence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GSobo5sk4s Cenk has said Muslim girls and women in Indonesia, India, and Bangladesh are equal to the Muslim men and boys and have no problems (it looks like he has believed everything Reza Aslan has said on these matters. Reza Aslan has been caught lying a lot. Here’s a video which explains it all by Keyboard Warrior titled But What About Moderate ‘Indonesia’?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9h0cq9uAAo). Professor Gad Saad made a funny video titled The Aslan-Uygur 5000 (The Saad Truth_ 54): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibmJTWy81do
Cenk Uygur was crazy and beyond ignorant when he talked about Raif Badawi’s flogging in Saudi Arabia. He even said “I feel like I’ve seen harder spankings on Grey’s anatomy. I think there are some guys in this country who’d sign up for that.” CRAZY TRAIN TIME! His co-host John just was lighthearted about it too and even said, “Lets say it didn’t hurt at all…”. Appollexis who’s a youtuber made a video called Cenk is a dumb ass and the video explains how Saudi floggings are painful and dangerous and Raif could die from the floggings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z955o0uuP1M I’m sure Raif Badawi would have found that really funny. How his staff could not look at what Saudi floggings do to the body is mind numbingly lazy, crazy and stupid. Cenk got heat for what he said on Twitter: https://twitter.com/cenkuygur/status/611233079684825088
Cenk bullshitted and said a white Christian man in Kansas tried to bomb an abortion clinic. That of course was found to not be true even when Cenk talked about this story. The 20 yr old young man wasn’t some crazy Christian and no one even knew he was Christian (Cenk just pulled that one out of his ass). The young man had stuff in his bag (he had stuff in his bag, cause he was in the process of moving) like forks and knives and it was proven the small fire crackers or fire cracker powder in a pill bottle with the cap on it with a fuse sticking out was not going to be lit and even if it was it wouldn’t have caused much damage if any (reports say this pill bottle was taped up in a box). The young man was cooperative after going through the metal detectors of this clinic. He was trying to get a job there. Of course Cenk was jumping up and down about how that kid got away with being a terrorist and how if a Muslim did the same thing they’d have thrown the book at him and be considered a terrorist. Atheisim-is-Unstoppable shows this b.s. in the video titled Hey Cenk, firecrackers aren’t ‘bombs’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThuPe82n08s The Youtuber, Autopsy 87 made a video about this titled The Turks Get Busted : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJzDx8cM0ms
Cenk also thinks Islamic radical groups in the U.S are not considered to be on the right. How does one come up with that conclusion I have no idea? Cenk couldn’t even say that Black Separatist groups are part of the hate groups list in the U.S. Atheism-is-Unstoppable caught that in this video titled Cenk Uygur Refuses To Read His Own Graphic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2thmuBNaHg
Cenk and his co-hosts got Charles Krauthammer’s quote all wrong, which Paranoid conspiracy theorist anti New World Order caught. The title of the video is The Young Turks are dishonest. Part one (again this pains me his videos are gone): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_n82DzORm_Q Cenk has jumped off the deep end into crazy waters. I’m guessing Cenk acts like a SULTAN/KING/EMPEROR/CEASAR at The Young Turks headquarters. He seems to be surrounded by yes men and yes women who bow down to the emperor with no clothes, since he does whatever he pleases on his show and no one is trying to stop him from looking foolish. Cenk did a video for his TYT Shows channel, which is not his main channel and he made a rare correction on getting Krauthammer’s quote wrong: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hg6aT2WDBLs
DAVE RUBIN TRIES TO WAKE CENK UP & CENK & TYT CAN NOT TAKE MUCH CRITICISM.
Dave Rubin who was on the Young Turks show and Network for some time; publicly tweeted Cenk back in July of 2015 about how Cenk has slandered Sam Harris and even Charles Krauthammer (of all people) and how that wasn’t right of him to take those actions. Rubin wanted Cenk to help transform Islam for many Muslims/have a more positive effect on Muslims who want their religion to be more moderate and progressive. Dave was trying to wake him up. Cenk stonewalled his tweets, cause CENK IS SO STRONG!! Dave Rubin basically said he left the show, cause of how Cenk was running the show and he didn’t like how the angle of the show has changed recently (slandering Sam Harris especially). Cenk and Dave still play basketball once a week and their relationship must be somewhat strained (this stopped in September of 2015 I believe due to an injury Dave had and then it never resumed). Cenk’s craziness has even gotten in the way with his friendship with Dave Rubin. When Cenk’s own friend can’t even get through to him then something is very off. Dave Rubin has no idea what’s happened to Cenk. Dave Rubin is truly baffled. Actually as of late Dave Rubin and Cenk Uygur are not friends anymore, since they had a big blow up on Twitter (since November 2015). Cenk was acting ridiculous. I think this is where he also said he’s thee best ex-Muslim on earth. This blow up is a long story. One can look it up on Twitter. It was entertaining. (I should look up that info and put it on here later).
I don’t think Cenk is capable of seeing any real valid criticism. I’m sure all of the videos by Youtubers pointing out Cenk and his show getting stories wrong have most likely been ignored or probably laughed at. Even his co-host Ana Kasparian has called valid criticism as being ‘hated on’ and she has ‘laughed’ about all of the criticism on Twitter, but I digress (She acts like a Stepford wife).
CENK LOVES FOOD, SEX, AND PORNO EQUALLY IT SEEMS.
He loves food, sex and porno equally. I’ve never seen a man love those pleasures of life as much as he does. When he describes eating a sub and drinking a peanut butter milk shake it’s like he’s describing the best foreplay, sex and orgasms. Everyone loves food, but this guy REALLY LOVES FOOD. I guess Cenk has really loved food that he talked about it for I guess 20 minutes on his show, cause it’s part of a show title:
The Bet, Cenk’s Love Of Food, Rich Assholes & NFL Drama https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uweQE9EAFXE
That man must make love to food with groans of pleasure constantly. He loves food so much that he’s gotten fatter over the yrs. I guess his weight has gone up and down like Oprah’s, but it’s mainly stayed on the higher side (as of late anyways). He obviously has a real problem with this. Luckily his health seems to be okay. He should lay off the food addiction (especially the peanut butter milkshake addiction), since that can down the road cause health problems. He has such a passion for food though so I guess he cant curtail his intake. I guess he doesn’t care that his wife would probably like a much leaner husband, but oh well. He probably thinks he looks awesome any ways even though he is over weight and is considered medically obese. He probably looks in the mirror, winks and says, “I look awesome.”
I assumed Cenk was having sex since he was 15 or 16 yrs old. I was very stunned to learn that he didn’t have sex til he was 21 yra old. In this video called TYT Postgame/Cenk gets his due, Ana blurts out at 3:35 that Cenk didn’t do it til he was 21 yrs old: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkcHGOtpnE0 That is just so sad and pathetic. In this video from Ana Kasparian’s channel titled Admitting Biggest Regrets While Drunk, starting at 2:06 and ending at 2:47 is where Cenk talks about not confident around women and wishes he was when he was younger: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rXihs3kJeI In this video called ‘Fantasy Slut League’ Uncovered in High School, Cenk says at 3:23 how he tried to pressure girls to have sex w/him & it didn’t work. SHOCKER! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9emN9kPIRpo It’s rather disgusting that Cenk tried to pressure women to have sex with him. God knows what he did? One guy online said to me that Cenk went to prostitutes and I’m not sure if he went to a prostitute for his first time. This is what Cenk looked like back when he was 21 yrs old: http://penn.veridiansoftware.com/cgi-bin/pennsylvania?a=d&d=tdp19911122-01.2.24 By the virginal and dorky look on his face and being so chubby I think he went to a prostitute. I’d bet on it.
Someone told me when he was a member of TYT he heard Cenk talking about how he went to prostitutes on a post game show (SHOCKER!!). I found writings or posts of Cenk’s on the Wayback machine, which were on The Young Turks website. This particular writing was showing that Cenk was a real crazy slut one night and a lucky crazy slut at that: https://web.archive.org/web/20020822111530/http://www.youngturk.com/the.htm There was another one I looked at and he was the boss man about the rules of dating. He wanted to have sex with every good looking woman on earth (a bit outlandish, but a dream he had….). I haven’t looked at all of his writings on there, yet apparently he truly was quite the horn dog (he still is the horn dog and he’s probably bored with his wife. I don’t know).
He seems like the type of guy who needs sex once or twice a day and if he doesn’t have that sex at that amount he’s probably going to punch his fist at a wall due to frustration. The man talks about sex a lot on his show. A Youtuber Seeing Red Yet? has a video titled THE YOUNG TURKS & CENK UYGUR EXPOSED, which shows how the show has loved talking about sex etc:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFvAW7vGJk8 He seems like he’s constantly horny or plays the part. The manly man said he’d have sex with women (maybe by tricking them) and if the sex was good then he’d start a relationship. He said he’d pick up women any where. He also said he was a dick to all of his girlfriends. He of course had to prove he was the dominant one/alpha male. Cenk also did say he’d wear a panda suit if it meant having sex so yes he’d do anything for sex. Funny enough a Youtuber Minibari73 made a video titled Cenk Sexy Panda Dance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaU6L6sW05E I hope his rooms/house are/is sound proof since he must wake up the dead when he’s in the act of pleasure, orgasming and being a Turkish delight. The faces he must make during sex and orgasm must be really funny as hell. His wife and ex-girlfriends and ex-fuckfriends must have a lot of stories about him in the bed. Yowza! Cenk was bummed out that he only had sex with 28 or 29 women. He also said when he got a little bit famous that women wanted to be with him. He said he already had the love of his life, so there was no way he could have more women (WHAT A MASSIVE BUMMER!!).
He says he’s a porno aficionado. He and others in his office enjoy watching porn so it’s not the normal office environment. He’s talked about different types of porn from the 80s to today. He should just write a book or blog about it already or have a porno review channel on his network at this point. One time Cenk interviewed a longtime female porno star. She said something like she’d have sex with Cenk in the closet near by and he really wished he could do so. It seemed like he had trouble keeping his dick down. It seems like he should have been a porn star, since he loves attention and love loves sex. He would have made a fantastic porn star, but oh well…
CENK IS A MOODY MAN!
Now, Cenk’s moodiness is something else. No woman in the media could ever get away with being as moody/emotional as he can be (actually Ana has turned into the female version of Cenk. Yikes…). His emotions essentially run the spectrum (except no crying and showing weakness). Of course that’s called ‘being passionate.’ This grown man acts like a bull in a china shop and has had ‘cry baby like’ temper tantrums. This man should have been an actor. He can explode like a volcano and act like a raging bull. He’s a very hot blooded man. His emotions are bursting out all over the place. The man is rarely dull. Again, he won’t ever shed a real tear and isn’t weak. He can be so angry/upset and happy through the roof with joy etc. He acts like he’s PMSing to the 10th degree every single day. He can make those crazy faces to the extreme like he’s on some kind of bad drug or is literally going insane. Cenk making those crazy faces has gotten worse since the summer of 2014. It’s just strange. He thinks he’s hilarious when he does that and he isn’t. When he makes those crazy faces he just looks like a fucked up clown. Again, no woman in the media could ever ever get away with those over the top emotions, crazy faces and antics. I wonder if he really is crazy. Actually I think his moodiness is at the level of a twelve or 14 yr old boy.
CENK IS CRAZY AT THE OFFICE.
I found out from a little birdie out of no where about some of the lowdown or skinny about The Young Turks office (now this is a third or fourth hand account). Supposedly at times Cenk gets dropped off by a limo. Cenk walks into the office like he is the King or Sultan (He is the CEO). He gets adulated as soon as he walks through the door (he NEEDS this praise). An intern has his favorite breakfast burrito and drink of whichever sort (possibly a peanut butter milkshake) and hands it all to him. Cenk can’t be bothered with getting his own food and drinks. The burrito and drink needs to be PERFECT. If his breakfast burrito isn’t perfect and if his drink isn’t perfect then he pushes whatever away and then the intern needs to fix this problem immediately by warming the meal up or getting another burrito as soon as possible etc. Cenk is just very picky with his food and drinks.
He has a lot of interns at his office, which is smart of him, since he doesn’t have to pay interns. They look up stories to talk about online and they write up the scripts or notes for the hosts. Cenk decides, which stories to discuss (his co-hosts help with these decisions and how they’ll talk about the stories), cause he’s the boss man. Cenk acts like he’s never wrong/infallible at the office. He’s a true Alpha male.
For lunch Cenk has his favorite sub or gyro and two of his favorite peanut butter milkshakes (Yow!). Again the sub or gyro and milkshake have to be perfect or the intern has to quickly fix this food and or milkshake problem (the intern or interns must be busy with this). I forgot to mention earlier that Cenk is very messy when he eats and drinks. He doesn’t clean up after himself so he’ll leave milkshake cups, straws, wrappers, napkins etc all over the place and an intern has to throw all of this garbage away. He obviously eats and drinks like he’s PMSing to the extreme every day. He has a large bottle of Tums on his desk to help him with his heartburn and stomach aches. He farts a lot and has no shame at all. ??? This man is too stupid or is too much of an addict to change his diet apparently. The least he should do is try some Gas-X and or enzymes to help his stomach out and to not be so offensive at the office, yet we know that Cenk is crazy so… Cenk probably thinks while he’s farting on his chair in front of his desk and or farting around the office is hilarious. A man cant be more than an alpha male than that.
At times Cenk can be high strung when dogs are in the office, because he cannot stand dog hair on his clothes and if that happens then he’ll blow up. Cenk hasn’t particularly liked having pets, so this is probably true. I also know from Cenk himself by watching one of his videos years ago; is that he and his workers LOVE watching porno at the office (I obviously wrote this before) . I don’t know if Cenk has to run to the bathroom, if you know what I mean. I am guessing they all migrate to one computer and look on together and laugh and or get hot and bothered. I’m sure all of them just love watching porn on their own computers (they all may be watching too much porn instead of researching stories). Cenk knows how to have a fun office.
Cenk and his team do two rehearsals before the show starts. They do this to make sure the segments and show are timed correctly, which makes sense. They make sure they have all of their information correctly too I imagine during these rehearsals. At the end of Cenk’s work day if he was dropped off by a limo then he’s picked up by one at night.
CENK UYGUR IS AN OLD SCHOOL SEXIST
I’ve been told that Turkish culture is very sexist, so that’s what Cenk was brought up in. I’m sure he was praised for being the SON in the family. I’m sure he saw his dad being sexist. It’s just the old school Turkish way to be. He grew up in Turkey til he was 8 yrs old and saw the sexist stuff as normal. He acts like he’s the best probably just due to being a MAN alone. Oh well…
His sexism is just so strange when he claims to be a liberal/ progressive. Again he bragged that he used to try to pressure women to have sex with him and to think about how he did those tactics is disturbing. Did he say he was going to have blue balls? Did he throw a temper tantrum? How exactly does a man pressure a woman to have sex with him? Guilt trips? Whining? Manipulations? Hmm..? Here’s the video proof again; at 3:23 in this video Cenk says he used to try to pressure women to have sex with him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9emN9kPIRpo
He thinks a woman cannot really sexually harass a man in the way a man can sexually harass a woman for the most part. He considers those actions as compliments to a man by a woman. I guess he would have been fine if he had a female boss sexually harass him (as long as she was good looking) and would have thought this is fun. Here’s some TYT video proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJlJYysWPnE
His belief on a woman abusing and raping a man is generally met with guffaws and disbelief. If a woman rapes her man/husband then according to him it’s obvious that really the woman was just a sex kitten who’s man/husband couldn’t deal with all of the sex she wanted (ha ha ha). Here’s The Young Turks video of a man in India being abused and raped by his wife and TYT’s take on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6S8ZmjzJE0 He talked about Russian women raping men years ago and he was perplexed why hot women would want to rape men when they could have gotten men easily. He couldn’t see them as sick psychopaths. e was still rather lighthearted and was like men being raped by women should enjoy and move on with their lives. Here’s a video of him talking about a Russian woman who raped 10 men in a TYT video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvaS7E6Koeo He thought or maybe still thinks if a 24yr old woman seduces a 15 yr old boy that that is the best day in that boy’s life and it isn’t that much of a crime. Here’s a TYT video, which shows Cenk’s double standard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STMFv5TeVgA He’s like this with basically all statutory rape cases as long as it is the male who is under age and not the female.
On a lighter note the manly man has never done housework in his life including when he lived on his own by himself. Even when he barely made money he never did that lowly womanly work (this is crazy!). He even hired a maid once a month to clean and do laundry even when he couldn’t afford it. I think it’s safe to say that Cenk never changed his kids’ diapers.
He had to name both of his children. His daughter’s name is Joy Helena, which is a more normal name compared to his son’s name Prometheus Maximus. I guess his wife’s input wasn’t needed. I’m hoping his wife could have given her daughter her middle name at least (it doesn’t look like that is the case. Cenk must be the boss man in his relationship with his wife).
And when Ana Kasparian first started working at the show she wasn’t allowed to talk about politics at all even though she had a B.S. in Journalism at the age of 20 or close to 21 (Ana started working at The Young Turks at the age of 20). She got her Masters in Political Science at the age of 23 or almost 24. I think it took three or four years for Cenk to allow her to talk about the non-TMZ stories/political news stories. I guess he thought she couldn’t handle it, because of her vagina. She stuck through it, persevered, and clawed her way to talk about political news. She even would sneak in political news stories in her segment of talking about other news stories down the road, which was clever of her. Cenk would also interrupt Ana the most when she talked about certain political news stories and put her down the most too, which was odd and crazy like. I don’t know why Cenk was like this with only Ana, but it looked like good old fashioned sexism and maybe due to her Armenian ethnicity too (who knows for sure).
THE HYPOCRISY AND INSANITY OF THE NAME OF HIS SHOW & NETWORK.
Okay the craziness and hypocrisy of all of Cenk’s craziness is maybe the name of his show and network The Young Turks. The Young Turks is the same name as the genocidal regime or party, which did the Armenian genocide. His show has gotten countless phone calls, emails, etc of complaints about the name of his show, since probably 2002. His crew gave these people the same b.s response of the progressive/rebel definition(s) and they meant no offense. That progressive definition comes from The Young Turks in history who overthrew the Sultan and put in progressive changes. Later on The Young Turks in history committed the Armenian genocide. When Cenk first came up with the name The Young Turk in the mid 90s on his public cable access show, he knew that name offended the Armenian community and he was a conservative back then and he was a staunch and public Armenian genocide denier. He may have been rubbing it in the Armenians’ faces by choosing that name (like standing up to them). He has never really cared that people have complained about the name of the show. I think he has just laughed it off.
Back in 2012 Armenians protested Cenk at a public political event in San Diego California for the name of his show and network and for being a very public Armenian genocide denier in an article he wrote in his University paper in November of 1991 and a letter he wrote to Salon in the 1999:http://asbarez.com/101017/armenians-protest-uygur-talk-at-democratic-convention/ https://anca.org/press-release/silent-protest-in-san-diego/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzNhpD7U4-g He gave them the same b.s. progressive definition response and how the name had nothing to do with the ‘historical situation.’ He never acknowledged what he wrote. He did say what happened was painful at least. I guess that’s as close to an apology he could do, sort of. He just can’t see that the name of his show is deplorable. He just doesn’t get it. It’s amazing how thick in the head he is and how he is so stubborn about this and it’s not much of a surprise. Many of the Armenians turned their backs on him and some left the room. It’s just a strange name for a liberal/ progressive/social justice warriors type of show to have when Cenk is a public Armenian genocide denier. He just doesn’t seem to like and respect the Armenian community at all as a whole.
This show is not supposed to be about punching down and is supposed to be about standing up for what is right. They’ve been very upset about the name of the football team named The Red Skins. Atheism-is-Unstoppable did a video about The Young Turks hypocrisy being upset about the Redskins football team’s name while looking the other way about their controversial name: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VX3xJ9dljaY
Cenk has done the Armenian genocide denying game over the years and publicly supported Turkish American organizations, which vehemently deny the Armenian genocide.
My other blog post explains all of this: https://someinconvenientfacts.wordpress.com/2015/07/09/cenk-uygurs-armenian-genocide-controversy-3/ Yeah, he’s had a very long saga with this starting in 1991. He wrote twice in the 90s that the Armenian genocide never happened at all. He also had on his The Young Turks website from 1999-2003 that there was no Armenian genocide and what really happened was a civil war and this is a good compromise:https://web.archive.org/web/20020720193442/http://www.youngturk.com/newpage15.htm He couldn’t say the words Armenian genocide to actual Armenians staring at him in a room in 2012 and instead called it a historical situation. Other times he’s called what happened were massacres and a slaughter-fest. As of April 22, 2016 Cenk has rescinded his University paper article and his letter to Salon in the 90s: https://www.tytnetwork.com/2016/04/22/rescinding-daily-pennsylvanian-article/ Yet what has many people upset with him is that he said he cant comment on the topic of the Armenian genocide, because he’s not a scholar of history and he just doesn’t know enough. People have equated that to someone saying he can’t comment on the holocaust, because he is not a scholar of history. Or he can’t comment on climate change because he is not a climate scientist. I think this was a big deal for him to do, since he’s never acknowledged and rescinded what he wrote in the 90s. We all know Cenk can’t really admit to being wrong. Yet he couldn’t say the Armenian genocide happened, which was strange so it looks like he just does not believe the Armenian genocide happened.
Cenk Uygur has been supporting the Turkish Coalition of America (TCA) and they vehemently deny the Armenian genocide and don’t want it taught anywhere. Here’s a link that is striking: http://www.mndaily.com/2011/03/30/judge-dismissed-blacklist-case-against-uHere . Here’s another link:(http://armenianweekly.com/2011/01/10/critical-thinking-or-genocide-denial-tca-vs-u-of-minn/) Here’s a link showing Cenk’s support: http://www.tc-america.org/news-events/events/tca-turkish-american-youth-leadership-congress-concludes-930.htm. In 2014 Cenk publicly supported TCA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7slE7LXSiTc From what I can gather as to date it still looks like Cenk supports TCA. Cenk has also supported and I believe still supports (I’m not 100% certain) the Assembly of Turkish Americans Associates (ATAA), which also vehemently denies the Armenian genocide and they do all they can to make sure it’s not taught anywhere. ATAA’s belief is that the Armenian genocide did not happen: http://www.ataa.org/reference/difference-fein.html . A link to Cenk’s support: http://www.ataa.org/nlc2012/. Cenk made a video in support of ATAA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS9Jrb5riP4.

Cenk going crazy on camera for all the world to see:
Cenk is one of the clowns of the earth that he talks about all the damn time. And I wonder how often Ben has had to hold Cenk back from punching people in his out of control clownish meltdowns. ??? Why can’t he have control over his emotions (cause he’s crazy?)? Cenk makes his clown faces and has his clown eye brows. He’s big and fat like a clown/has a clownish body (sorry, I don’t mean to fat shame). Cenk thought he was so funny/like a clown that he could have been a professional comedian. Oy…
Case II: Red-Faced Redskins was on Cenk’s website The Young Turks in 1999 I think and I don’t think he’s ever apologized for his racist/bigoted remarks.
Case II: Red-Faced Redskins https://web.archive.org/web/20020908173451/http://www.youngturk.com/newpage2.htm
Lawyers for 34 Indian tribes filed suit on Tuesday against several tobacco companies for deliberately targeting Indian teens. They want $5 billion dollars (said ala Dr.Evil with pinkie in front of mouth)!
C’mon! These Redskins show up everywhere there’s a buck to be made these days (by the way, I actually think Redskin is a rare ethnic term that actually is offensive, I’m only using it now because they’ve made me angry). Figuring out the gambling gambit was genius on their part, and I completely agree with them there. Hey, if the white man got to screw you for all these years (which they most definitively did), then it’s great ironic justice that you rob him blind with these casinos that’s on every reservation now.
But this tobacco suit is clearly another matter. Who are you trying to kid? Indians were smoking tobacco before the white man ever got here, let alone built these cigarette companies. Ever heard of the peace pipe?
Now, you’re going to try to convince me that these Indian kids would not have smoked if it weren’t for the big bad tobacco corporations. Bullshit. They saw the peace pipe buried up your ass long before they ever saw a cigarette ad.
It’s incredibly obvious that these tribes are trying to milk the companies for money the way the states did. It makes it no less shameless.
And here is another news flash: The tobacco companies try to get everybody to smoke — that’s their job! They go after kids? You don’t say. OF COURSE, they go after kids, that’s their future customers. It’s your job as a parent to teach your kids right, so they are not overly influenced by every ad they see.
If we are not going to ban these companies, we should not stop them from trying to pedal their wares. Obviously, they should use marketing within prescribed bounds, as they do now. But I am entirely unconvinced that marketing to teenagers in the past, when they were allowed to, is an evil that the companies should now pay billions for.
And there is no way you’re going to convince me that they had some sort of animus against Indian kids in particular, and targeted them for more marketing because they were Indian. By the way, even if they did, I wouldn’t care. They are in the business of trying to sell these god-damn cigarettes. I think it’s stupid to blame them for that.
The only thing that might be more stupid is smoking itself. But that’s a personal choice. Maybe that’s what angers me more, that all these dumb-asses kill themselves by smoking, and then they get angry at the cigarette companies when they have no one but themselves to blame.
However, in this case, the Indians aren’t even angry at the companies. They know it’s their own fault, they’re just suing them for the money. I appreciate the fact that they are not delusional, but I do not appreciate their avarice. Stick to the casinos, and leave the malicious greed to the white man.”
All I’m going to say again is that Cenk is a crazy character. I don’t think there’s been anyone on the left or supposed left as belligerent, bombastic, moody, acting so strong, being so smug, and is as crazy as Cenk. He’s one of a kind. To be fair I don’t think he and his show get all of the stories they comment on wrong. I wish he could improve and not be so crazy, but I won’t hold my breath.
