Saagar Enjeti: Bernie’s betrayal of Cenk Uygur shows weaknesses of the left

(16.12.2019)

Saagar Enjeti argues about the fakeness behind Left Twitter’s outrage over Senator Sanders endorsing Cenk Uygur.

Correction: An earlier version of this article referred imprecisely to a remark by Cenk Uygur, a radio host running for Congress. When David Duke appeared on his show and denied being a racist, Mr. Uygur was sarcastic when he replied, „No, of course not.“

The David Duke interview smear against Cenk is so egregious and disgusting that it even makes me question some of the reporting on Trump. That’s how dishonest they’ve been.

This is stunning! @nytimes @JennyMedina claimed @cenkuygur said David Duke is “of course not” a bigot. This is the interview she was citing! They should immediately retract and apologize!

Bernie Sanders Retracts Endorsement of Cenk Uygur After Criticism

(13.12.2019)

Mr. Sanders had called Mr. Uygur, the founder and co-host of the online talk show “The Young Turks,” “a voice we desperately need in Congress” in a statement on Thursday.

“I know he will serve ordinary people, not powerful special interests,” Mr. Sanders said then.

But by Friday afternoon, he had reconsidered.

“Our movement is bigger than any one person,” he said. “I hear my grass roots supporters who were frustrated and understand their concerns. Cenk today said he is rejecting all endorsements for his campaign, and I retract my endorsement.”
