What Are “Weasel Words”? These Are Weasel Words…

The aspiring Congressman’s potential girlfriend….

This was Democratic Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, withdrawing his endorsement just yesterday of  Cenk Uygur, the far left media demagogue who could best be described as a liberal Alex Jones, but even more abrasive. Ridiculously, Cenk is running for Congress to replace ex-Naked Congresswoman Katie Hill, and since any Left Wing nut is a friend of Bernie’s, Sanders endorsed his candidacy yesterday, saying

“For many years Cenk has been one of the outstanding progressive journalists in our country. I’m endorsing Cenk because I know he will serve ordinary people, not powerful special interests. He is a voice that we desperately need in Congress…”

Wow. What an insult to other progressive journalists, which is, after all, almost all of them.  Uygur makes Lawrence O’Donnell look like Edward R. Murro. He makes Chris Cuomo seem like Tim Russert. And apparently Bernie feels that Congress needs a voice advocating bestiality.

In a  2013 video, Uyger told co-host Ana Kasparian that he would legalize bestiality if he had the power to do so. His criteria for legal bestiality would be “if you are pleasuring the animal.”  Yes, that’s Cenk! Presumably that same logic would justify man-boy sex and statutory rape.

Another segment his show “The Young Turks” featured the host equating sexual assault and homosexuality, insisting that men who sexually abuse other men must be repressing homosexual urges. On another segment, in 2013, he rated women on a scale of how hot they would need to be in order for a man to let her “suck his dick.” These days, since he is running for Congress, he swears that he was just trying to cause controversy (Alex Jones also uses this excuse), and that  he “had not yet matured” and “was still a conservative.”

After Bernie’s endorsement, he immediately came under attack by various progressive groups. California’s Women’s List, a “Political Action Committee dedicated to fundraising for, supporting, and electing pro-choice, Democratic women to office in California,” said in a statement, “California Women’s List is disappointed in Senator Sanders’ endorsement of Cenk Uygur, a candidate who has repeatedly used misogynistic, racist, and homophobic language. This endorsement appears to go against Senator Sanders’ platform and role as a leader in the progressive movement.”

Ya think?

Oddly, PETA was not heard from.

Bernie didn’t have the integrity or the guts to say he was withdrawing his endorsement because Uyger thinks humans should be able to have sex with their dogs as long as Snoopy seems to be enjoying it, and that’s unacceptable, even for a member of Congress.  Instead, Sanders mysteriously says that some supporters have concerns, and Sanders “understands.” Oh, good, Bernie: you understand why some judgemental people have “concerns” about man-goat romances. But the real reason he is withdrawing his endorsement is because Cenk isn’t accepting endorsements as of today.

So it’s not really like Bernie made a mistake after all.

  1. When he named his amateur-hour YouTube news program The Young Turks, after the political party responsible for the Armenian Genocide…I thought he was just stupid.

    Turns out he’s actually Turkish himself AND was a denier of the genocide…until fairly recently when that position became untenable for him. The guy’s kinda scum.

  2. It’s kinda logical that an asshole like Bernie would endorse a pile of shit like Cenk. The guy has made a career out of being a jerk, a provocateur, an outrage merchant, and generally a piece of shit, except he’s not funny like George Carlin or sharp like Neil Degrasse Tyson.

  3. Oh, why not have Cenk in Congress. He would fit in well: I don’t understand the total destruction of the Democrat party. I think Hillary killed it, but somewhere there must be a voice of reason, but I can’t find it. Anyone?

    • Wouldn’t he be part of The Squad? Wasn’t he part of the Justice Democrats before they purged him? Wouldn’t they let him back in if he were elected to Congress? How do these people who are intent on destroying the United States get elected to Congress? What’s going on?

  4. PETA was unavailable for comment, since all available resources are attempting to prove that lethal injections in their animal rescue facilities actually ‘pleasure the dog,’ and are thus ethical.
