The Young Turks' ominous threat against white Christians

This is what they tweeted not long ago:

https://twitter.com/TheYoungTurks/status/906348270280220672

They refer to a PBS survey that shows that white Christians are now a minority in the US. 

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/white-christians-now-minority-u-s-population-survey-says/

For anyone who does not know, the "Young Turks" were responsible for the Armenian Genocide of 1.5 million Armenians, most of whom were white and Christian.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_Genocide

Cenk Uygur routinely downplays and denies the Armenian Genocide. He's an apologist for it. Their response to white Christians being a minority in the US, coupled with what "The Young Turks" did during the genocide, is really ominous and basically a blatant threat.

Cenk is not stupid. He knows exactly what he's doing and what he's saying. Hopefully the left denounces him and his platform of hate.

Their latest Youtube video on the subject matter is getting absolutely demolished by the dislikes, which is good.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhoIeAnUTZA&feature=youtu.be&a=

Unfortunately there's still 5,000 likes on the video, which represents a significant portion of the total ratings.

This is a lie. He denied it a long time ago and has since apologized and acknowledged it for many years.

This is a lie.

He denied it a long time ago and when the pressure of people bringing it up all the time got to him he "apologized" for his original article in which he denied it and said he doesn't want to talk about it anymore because he's not an expert. He never said that he accepts that it happened and he talks about things he's not an expert on all the time on this show, he just want to stop talking about this particular thing that looks really disgustingly bad for him.

Bulls***. It was a disingenuous non-apology.

Cenk knows exactly what he's doing and he's not even hiding it anymore.

In a recent video they mentioned it actually. Cenk himself brought up the Armenian genocide. I think it was in response to how ironic it is that erdogan criticized the genocide of muslims in myanmar while turkey itself still denies the armenian and other genocides

I didn't claim he does it routinely. I was responding to your comment and that particular caveat is irrelevant.

You backed up the post that said he routinely denies the genocide, the post I called a lie.

It's not my blog. It's Jerry Coyne's blog. He's very respected in his field and in academia in general. 

And you are completely dishonest if you really believe you're stating facts. Regardless of what Cenk said in any of his latest videos, as of 2016 everything in Jerry Coyne's blog post was true. Cenk knows exactly what he's doing.

I hate them too, but cenk is gay and hiv positive, he'd be killed in Turkey. So it kind of makes him a hypocrite.
If I was a member, I'd walk around blasting this all the time.

I already explained why your take on what he did is an errornous take on the situation that gives him more benefit that what his actual apology deserves.

A genocide denier who works on a show named after the perpetrators that committed that very same genocide make a racist video against the race and religion that were the victims of said genocide?

Would you say the same about a Holocaust denier on a show called 'Nazi' saying 'Isreal's getting nuked!'?

"ominous"

"Threats" 

Lmao stfu white Christians are the most priveleged and protected people. Forget black, forget Muslims, if you wanna talk persecuted Christians - look no further than middle Eastern Arabic Christians.

Who, by the way, have been practising Christianity for centuries before any white person had heard of Jesus.

So the fact you wanna play victimhood and make it all about *white* Christians is a good way of exposing your prejudices

Ew... TYT regularly sprinkles trashy clickbait stories into their programming, but this one is pretty gross even by their standards.

Buried halfway through the video is this clarification from Cenk:
I celebrate that we're all going to be equal.

That's perfectly reasonable. But I don't think that the identity politics that permeates the rest of the video is especially helpful to the Progressive cause.
