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.

23.12.2019 - 13:03 [ NYT Politics / Twitter ]

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.”

Young Turks‘ Cenk Uygur Running For Katie Hill’s Vacant House Seat

(14.11.2019)

The seat is due to be filled in a special election, a date for which California Gov. Gavin Newson is expected to announce shortly. Given California’s nonpartisan jungle primary system ― in which Republicans, Democrats and independents compete for the top two spots ― Uygur’s candidacy is liable to be a source of anxiety for a Democratic Party establishment eager to hold on to a swing seat the party flipped in 2018.

11.10.2019 - 06:18 [ Ilhan Omar, Abgeordnete des US Repräsentantenhauses / Twitter ]

At his rally just now, Trump called me an “America-hating socialist” and a “disgrace.” He shouted xenophobic conspiracy theories about me. He scolded my district for voting for me. His hate is no match for our movement. Stand with me by donating now:

Tell the Democrats: Refuse to Travel to Israel Until the Government Allows Rashida and Ilhan In

Tell Democrats in Congress to commit to not traveling to Israel until Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are allowed to enter by signing on to our petition right now.

Progressive champions like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Marc Pocan have already committed to not visiting Israel until all members of congress can visit — we need the rest of the Democrats in Congress to do the same.

House Democrats Prepare for Civil War as Challengers Plot Primary Battles

Almost a year in advance of the June 2020 primary, more than a dozen Democrats in New York have declared their plans to run, forming one of the most contentious congressional fields in the country at this stage. They are targeting some of the country’s longest-serving or most powerful politicians — most as first-time or outsider candidates, and some in the same district.
