The Young Turks

The Young Turks is a liberal progressive web show that celebrates the name of a genocidal regime that murdered more than 2 million Armenian Christians. The show is hosted by Armenian holocaust denier Cenk Uygur.

Karen Straughan

The host, Cenk Uygur, interviewed a female anti-feminist known as Karen Straughan. During the interview, Uygur became visibly agitated, repeatedly cutting off Straughan which culminated in him eventually telling her to make him a sandwich. This is ironic considering Uygur has previously espoused feminist views.[1]

Armenian Genocide

In 2016, after years of denying the Armenian genocide, Cenk Uygur admitted he wasn't qualified to prove it didn't happen.[2]

Donald Trump election

The series gained some notoriety during the 2016 presidential election where the commentators, especially Cenk Uygur, proceeded to go from smug about Hillary Clinton's "inevitable" win to visibly breaking down on the air over Trump's chances at winning increasing, effectively acting as a visual representation of the mainstream media's overall reaction to learning they sorely underestimated Trump's chances at winning.[3]

John McCain

Cenk Uyger and the Young Turks earned a reputation for notoriety throughout the 2008 presidential election by smearing Sen. John McCain as racist.[4] The Young Turks have never attempted to clarify, rescind, or apologize for divisive and hateful rhetoric.
