Cenk Uygur asks supporters to pledge to personally ‘remove’ Trump from office if he loses and refuses to leave

Far-left YouTube host and failed congressional candidate Cenk Uygur is asking his followers to pledge to personally go to Washington D.C. and help remove President Donald Trump from office if he loses the election and refuses to leave.

The host of “The Young Turks” posted a petition on his show’s website and tweeted out the pledge for his nearly half a million followers to consider signing.

“Sign Petition: If Donald Trump loses the election and refuses to leave, and the United States military does not remove him from office, I, the undersigned, will personally go to Washington and help remove him from the White House with my fellow Americans,” he wrote.

The website linked cited an interview of the president with Chris Wallace on Fox News where he was asked if he would respect the results of the election in November.

“In general, I’m not talking about November, are you a good loser?” asked Wallace.

“I’m not a good loser,” Trump replied. “I don’t like to lose. I don’t lose too often. I don’t like to lose.”

“But are you gracious?” Wallace asked.

“You don’t know until you see, it depends,” said Trump. “I think mail in voting is going to rig the election, I really do.”

“Are you suggesting that you might not accept the results of the election?” asked Wallace.

“I have to see,” Trump added.

In another tweet Uygur responded to the comments in the Wallace interview from the president.

“No, it most certainly does not depend. You’ll leave, you fu**ing goon. At that point, if US military does not physically remove you from the building, the American people will,” he tweeted.

“Biden is not going to beat Trump!”

Uygur made headlines in March when he lost his campaign for the U.S. congressional seat for California, and then melted down on his show after his preferred presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also performed poorly against Joe Biden.

“Guys not just on progressives versus establishment, this is so important, I need you to understand this, Biden is not going to beat Trump!” Uygur pleaded to his far-left audience on his show.

“Biden is either near senile or actually senile, watch any of the tapes! And Biden lies nonstop! He’s gonna get caught!” Uygur exclaimed. “And when Trump comes for him, he’s not gonna beat Trump!”

Sanders ended his presidential campaign in April, making Joe Biden the presumed Democratic presidential candidate.

‘White privilege in action’ — Bernie supporters refuse to support Biden, and Democrats are outraged

Democrats are fighting among themselves after establishment candidate Joe Biden appears to be heading towards taking the nomination from the socialist democrat alternative.

A skirmish broke out on social media after progressive host for “The Hill-TV Live” Krystal Ball said that she would simply not vote in the general election in order to chastise the Democratic party for shunning Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

“I don’t think it’s tenable for progressives to threaten to vote for [President Donald] Trump, I think that’s nuts, I would never do that,” said Cenk Uygur to Ball on his YouTube channel, “The Young Turks.”

“I would never vote for Donald Trump either, but you can leave it blank,” responded Ball.

“As of today I am undecided voter, because here’s the thing Cenk,” Ball added. “Donald Trump is awful, the next Republican is awful, and if they always can say, ‘look you gotta vote for us no matter what you’ve got no other choice, then they’re always gonna treat us like this because you have no power in that situation, you’re just gonna show up and vote for them anyway.”

The clip of her comments went viral on Twitter among Democrats who fumed about her decision. Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien lashed out and accused them of racism.

“This is a really great example of White privilege in action,” said O’Brien.

Uygur responded in his own tweet to O’Brien.

“1. I’m not white. Being from a Muslim background has not been a bowl of peaches lately. 2. I disagreed with Krystal in that segment. So context would be nice.”

“3. Not everyone who disagrees with you is doing it because of privilege,” he added.

Others attacked Ball and called her a grifter for her stance.

“With all that on the line, Krystal Ball – one of the biggest grifters on the scene – is using her platform to advocate for Trump’s re-election. Just wear a MAGA hat and be done with it,” said former Hillary Clinton staffer Zac Petkanas.

“This is a sad commentary by @krystalball. It comes from a place of privilege that one can afford to leave it blank,” responded CNN contributor Bakari Sellers.

YouTube host Cenk Uygur calls for progressives to ‘go to war’ against Democrat establishment to secure Bernie Sanders nomination

Far-left YouTube host Cenk Uygur vowed to go to war with the Democratic establishment in order to secure the nomination for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) after a disastrous Sunday Tuesday showing for the socialist democrat candidate.

Uygur conceded his own campaign run for one of California’s seats in the US House of Representatives after receiving only 5 % of the vote.

In a rant on his popular “The Young Turks” channel, Uygur went on a rant against the Democratic establishment for what he perceived as lies to help their favored candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden.

“No matter what happens tonight, If the establishment media continues to lie about Biden’s record, we all have to go and collectively and kick their g*dd*mn a**es, of course, not physically, we’re progressives,” Uygur said.

Uygur went on blame the mainstream media for Sanders failing to secure the nomination on Super Tuesday.

“We thought it was almost over, Bernie was gonna win, now it’s not over, now we’re in a tie! And now we got absolute dig-in warfare against the establishment! But we didn’t start the war, they started the war!” he yelled.

“You wanna go to war, we’ll go to war!” he exclaimed later in the broadcast. “And that is what this is. We cannot let Biden win!”

Uygur criticized Biden as a weak candidate with serious flaws that would lose to President Donald Trump in the general election.

“Guys not just on progressives versus establishment, this is so important, I need you to understand this, Biden is not going to beat Trump!” he continued.

“Biden is either near senile or actually senile, watch any of the tapes! And Biden lies non-stop! He’s gonna get caught!” Uygur exclaimed emphatically.

“And when Trump comes for him, he’s not gonna beat Trump!” he concluded.

Sanders was widely considered to be on the path to obtaining the nomination before Biden surpassed him in the delegate count with stunning victories across the board on Super Tuesday.

Bernie Sanders Campaign 2020 Carlos maza cenk uygur coup democratic party Intelwars Marianne williamson

Bernie Sanders supporters pout, claim ‘coup,’ blame media for his poor Super Tuesday showing

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders’ supporters are crying foul after former Vice President Joe Biden’s Super Tuesday victory.

The Vermont senator took the clear lead in the Democratic race after the first three primary contests. But Biden has re-emerged as the front-runner after his Super Tuesday performance — in which he won a majority of the delegates — that followed his blowout win in South Carolina.

Now that Biden is back on top, Sanders’ supporters are voicing their ardent frustrations and theories that the Democratic nomination is being stolen from Sanders.

For example, Marianne Williamson, a former 2020 Democratic candidate herself who has since become a surrogate for Sanders, claimed the Democratic Party has initiated a “coup” against Sanders.

“Jake Tapper referred to the ‘resurrection’ of Joe Biden’s campaign. This was not a resurrection; it was a coup. Russiagate was not a coup. Mueller was not a coup. Impeachment was not a coup. What happened [on Super Tuesday] was a coup. And we will push it back,” she said in a since-deleted tweet.

Meanwhile, Carlos Maza, the progressive commentator who led the charge to de-platform Steven Crowder, blamed the media.

“It’s easy to blame Warren for this, but the bigger culprit is cable news, which treated South Carolina like a major unexpected comeback for Biden and likely had a huge impact on last-minute voters worried about electability,” he said.

And then there was Cenk Uygur, founder of the far-left YouTube channel The Young Turks, who had a complete meltdown, lashing out at the Democratic “establishment” for Sanders’ lackluster Super Tuesday showing.

Because it appears that Sanders and Biden will be extremely close in delegate count at the convention, the likelihood of a contested convention is increasing.

A contested convention would be bad news for Sanders, even if he goes into the Democratic National Convention with a slight edge over Biden. That’s because superdelegates have much more power in a second ballot at the Democratic convention and would likely lean heavily in favor of Biden.

Far left YouTube candidate Cenk Uygur melts down on his show, disastrous election numbers roll in

Cenk Uygur, a combative progressive YouTube personality, was visibly angered by the lackluster performance of his favored presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), in the Super Tuesday primary elections.

His co-hosts also appeared stunned when the disastrous poll results rolled in for his campaign for California’s seat in the US House of Representatives.

In a video posted on Twitter from the progressive YouTube show “The Young Turks,” Uygur can be seen tearing up before leaving the show altogether.

Uygur earlier in the show accused Joe Biden of suffering from senility and claimed the only reason he was beating Sanders was because the media was unfair to the socialist democrat.

Sanders was looking to defend his frontrunner status in the Super Tuesday primary elections, but Joe Biden routed him in many states and set himself up for a probable victory for the Democratic nomination.

Uygur’s co-hosts continued on to report that early numbers from the campaign for California’s congressional seat showed he was garnering less than 5 % support, in fourth place behind two Republicans and one other Democrat.

The far left progressive ran a controversial campaign that included an endorsement by Sanders that was revoked only hours later after comments from Uygur created a backlash and negative headlines.

Uygur was also openly hostile to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democratic establishment, which he said accused of taking legal bribes from corporations.

Here’s an interview with Uygur about his campaign:

Cenk cenk uygur collective bargaining Intelwars Labor union The Young Turks TYT Tyt union Union unions Uygur young turks

Lefty founder of The Young Turks Cenk Uygur loves unions ? just not at his company

Cenk Uygur, the outspoken co-founder of the left-wing news network, The Young Turks, recently scolded employees at an all-staff meeting after discovering their intentions to form a labor union.

According to the Huffington Post, Uygur passionately urged employees to rethink their decision, throwing papers and openly reprimanding an employee. Despite being pro-union himself, he argued that a union does not belong at a small, independent outlet like TYT and that if there had been a union in the network’s early years, it would not have grown like it has.

It was only just earlier that day that employees announced on Twitter their decision to unionize, a move that evidently caught Uygur off guard. He later told Huff Post he wasn’t sure if it was real or if he was “being punked.”

In the same interview, Uygur also insisted that he still strongly supports unions but argued that a unionized workforce could cripple TYT with unsustainable new legal and bureaucratic costs.

“The reality is we’re in a precarious position,” he said. “We’re in a digital media landscape where almost no one makes money or is sustainable.”

“For a smaller digital media company, those are absolutely real considerations. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a union. Everyone should know the full context. … If folks say they don’t believe we’re in a precarious position, OK. And that’s their decision to make,” he added.

Uygur also confirmed that he did in fact throw papers ? though not toward anyone ? and that he dressed-down an employee who he thought was smiling, saying things would not be funny “later.”

“The person smiling seemed to be openly mocking the idea that the company might not survive after 18 years. And we put all this blood, sweat, and tears into it,” he said. “I don’t find the idea of us going down funny.”

Staffers reportedly found the statement to be ominous and unsettling and were generally discouraged by Uygur’s entire talk, which they believe betrayed the principles that TYT broadcasts to followers.

“We generally feel disappointed, but unshaken,” one staffer told Huff Post anonymously. “We feel it’s the right thing to do because of what TYT values.”

Uygur ? who is running for the California congressional seat made vacant by former Rep. Katie Hill’s resignation ? has already been criticized by his Democratic opponent, Christy Smith.

Uygur responded on Twitter, rebutting the claim that The Young Turks “refused voluntary recognition” of the TYT union. He also hit back at Smith, pointing out that the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, the organization backing the TYT union, has announced support for his opponent.
