Fuck Jimmy,

Is there a war that Cenk wasn’t for? I think its about time to rub his cry for war with Syria back in his face. How naive or blood thirsty do you have to be before you realize that all talk about a justified war is nonsense?

As for his call for war with Russia, here are some alternatives to the propaganda he and the rest of the american media are pushing.

Thanks for your show and for your other work. I very much look forward to seeing you on tyt, although my love for that show is faltering.


Thanks for the compliments and the info, why are you losing interest in TYT?

I loved the show because I loved getting mad “with” Cenk. Now, especially with foreign policy, I get mad “at” him. He seems to see through the deception when it comes to financial matters and such, but swallows hook, line, and sinker when its against whatever next country is targeted war.
I wrote that last comment fresh after watching Cenk perpetuating the administration’s position against Russia. Nobody knows for sure, but there is a good chance that it was the americans that instigated the civil war in the Ukraine (as well as the one in Syria). Why isn’t TYT talking about this possibility. What about the referendum in Crimea? Where is the evidence its totally bogus? If the choice is between Russia and the EU, and seeing what Greece and Italy are going through maybe Russia is the better option. Who knows? One thing is certain, there is absolutely no reason to believe anything the american administration has to say. It makes me so angry to see Cenk just repeating the american government’s pov on this matter without considering if its true. For someone that actually loves the show and is emotionally invested in its success, it’s disheartening to see Cenk pushing the hatred of other countries and shaking his audience out of their ‘weariness’ for war.

Fuck I hate that pumpkin-head krystol, but can’t one of the main criticism against him be applied towards Cenk. Was there a war Cenk wasn’t for? I know he was/is for Libya, Syria, Ukraine/Russia. Probably for Afghanistan at the start. He is against the Iraq war now, I don’t remember if he fell for lies of wmd. He is for war with Pakistan except with better drone target information. I don’t think he is for the war with Yemen. I’ve watched the show for a long time so his love for war is not a surprise. However, as an honest actor I expect his position to evolve. Lies before every american war ever and he’s still sucking them up and repeating them without questioning them or even questioning why they are in the news cycle.

Since I wrote that original comment, I’ve calmed down a bit. I started following the TYT live chat (not twitter, not youtube, the ‘mib’ one if you know what I mean) and it’s very comforting to see that the audience, for the most part, is just as mad at Cenk as I am. It would have been nice to see someone challenge this shit on air. It reminded me of the time where you were the only one against a war with Syria. Its very frustrating to watch without that lone voice that echoing the decent I feel. Jimmy, you really do a fantastic job. On shows like that one you are sorely missed.

On another front, the show itself feels like its moving away from what I think should be its priorities. Postponing a story about the Koch Brothers to show some filler like titter storm. In the old days, wouldn’t the show just do the story? It would cancel the twitter storm and, if it was necessary, it would cut into the second hour of fluff. The show can talk about anything, and it takes that opportunity to talk about itself. Responding to twitter, isn’t that what twitter is for?

Anyway, thanks for letting me vent. I still watch the TYT. I always look forward to seeing you on it and whatever I can find you.


ps. Do you watch these state department daily briefings? You don’t have to answer. Maybe just check them out for a couple days. I Just started watching them myself and I think there should be more eyes on them because the deceit is so transparent. These are the lies before they get polished by the press. It makes it so easy to see these people as the psychopathic monsters they are. Plus its so very current. Victoria Nuland just came off of this job to go fuck up the Ukraine, and the current spokes-skirt Jen Psaki in her spare time is firing off her own propaganda tweets like ‘[It’s] clear russia shot first [in Simeropol]’. When she is challenged by RT (in english) to produce evidence, she can’t respond but later tweets that RT altered her translation. If she couldn’t answer in english there’s no need to make up something in Russian. It was so surprising to find out these people are not just there to report to the press. They are full fledged actors working behind the scenes too. There own actions generate the need for a cover story, that they then create and report. Its like a closed ecosystem of Hypocrisy. I hope you check it out.
