Cenk: The media is ‘grossly deceiving people’ on Iran

Published

on

The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur accused CNN host Erin Burnett and the establishment media Friday evening for trumping up Iran’s weapons capability and trying to start another war in the Middle East.

Uygur was particularly annoyed at Burnett placing her own assessment of Iran’s leadership proceeding to develop a nuclear weapon, despite U.S. intelligence citing that wasn’t the case.

“Didn’t we see this movie, ‘Saddam could attack the United States within 45 minutes,'” he said. “It’s war mongering, over and over again. Oh my God, Iran is so dangerous.”

Uygur later stressed that the traditional media would not cause another Iraq like situation to occur.

“You are grossly deceiving people, and we’re not going to let you get away with it this time,” he said. “We’re not going to let you drive this country into another senseless war in the Middle East with your lies and your propaganda.”

Tongue-tied GOP strategist crashes and burns on-air while trying to deny Trump’s racism

Published

Republican strategist Amy Tarkanian crashed and burned on CNN on Saturday while attempting to deny President Donald Trump's racism.

"I do not believe that the president’s tweets were racist. I do believe they were not well thought out. He needs that extra, 'Are you sure?' button on Twitter," Tarkanian argued.

"I'm a black man, I'm a Republican and a black man," the Rev. Joe Watkins interjected. "My mother's an immigrant, I would be angry if someone said that to my mother."

"Oh, it’s very offensive. But he did not say, because you are this color, go back to where you came from," Tarkanian argued. "I’m not supporting that tweet. Was it racist? No. Was it stupid? Yes."

Trump supporter blames Democrats for being targeted by the president: ‘Why is that racist?’

Published

on

CNN interviewed a supporter of President Donald Trump in Eau Claire, Wisconsin who refused to acknowledge the racism in the president's "Go Back" attacks on four women of color in Congress.

The network interviewed Kerri Krumenauer of Wiersgalla Plumbing & Heating Company about Trump's attacks.

"How is it racist?" she asked.

"If you don't like this country, get out," she demanded. "Leave!"

She then showed how misinformed she was about the incident.

"He didn't use any names -- they stood up," she falsely claimed. In fact, Trump did use names and the targets did not stand up as they were not at his North Carolina campaign rally.

Black GOP strategist called on the carpet by Joy Reid for trying to sidestep Trump’s racist rally as ’empowering’ voters

Published

on

An "AM Joy" panel on MSNBC descended into talking over each other as host Joy Reid confronted a black GOP consultant over Donald Trump's racist rally in North Carolina.

Presenting the conservative point of view, Republican strategist Lenny McAllister was asked point-blank by the host, "Lenny, hold on a second, because you as a man of color yourself -- do you feel comfortable in a party that does rallies like that?"

McAllister pushed back saying he had walked away from just those type of events, before admitting, "To the greater point. They're using racism as an avenue through which people feel empowered, they lend you the loyalty, they give you the vote. What Republicans need to do is continue to empower people, but not by using racism and not by using phobia."
