They also named their organization after a terrorist group that committed genocide. Really makes you think.


Cenk wasn't aware of the worst parts of the Young Turks movement when he named the podcast, just that it involved a revolution against an oppressive elite. Hell, he even admitted that growing up in Turkey, he bought into the government propaganda until he got to learn at a much later age about what really happened in his country.

For him not to know that is for him to be very ignorant of history or completely disingenuous.

It's the power of government propaganda. Which is also the reason why he denied the Armenian genocide happened for so many years. Apparently Turkey was really good at brainwashing its youth about how awesome and perfect their country was.

Exactly. The Young Turks are a joke---even liberals are beginning to turn against them. They almost make MSNBC look credible and that's not easy to do.

Which makes repug sources that much more embarassing.
Sorry if my posts make you feel emotional. It is not my intent.

I'm a perfect example of that. I stopped watching Young Turks a few months ago, stayed with MSNBC. They aren't perfect but at least MSNBC does a better job of attracting centrists.
