I have a pretty low count since I don't even watch the young turks that much. I can't tolerate Cenk and don't want to give him clicks because of the whole Armenian genocide thing.

Funny thing is some right wing fundie in the yahoo comments section once told me I was a dumb libtard that watched too much TYT. This was like 7 years ago and I was like 13 and had never heard of them before.

This is not an opinion of a TYT fanboy; I see them as an overrated and flawed organization that despite its flaws still has a positive effect as a whole. Cenk especially is in many ways an annoying dumbass but the Armenian genocide denial is at this point a pure smear. He has acknowledged that it happened and admitted having been ignorant about the issue but that doesn't prevent trolls from bringing it up constantly.

It's still pretty awkward considering he still never changed the name even after acknowledging it. Because the Young Turks (the original ones) were the people responsible for that. I get that the channel is known as TYT but re-branding shouldn't be too much of a problem considering they have like a million or more subscribers who would understand why a name change was sorely needed.

Apparently, the agenda of the "Radical Left" is pretty darned popular.

At least, according to a survey done by YouGov Blue commissioned by Data for Progress, so make of that what you will.

I'd love to see this repeated by other organizations to see what the results would be.

Kyle Kulinski is a racist and a sexist.

What accusation? The one about Kulinski being racist and sexist? I'm practically quoting him; watch the video.

Identity Politics has been used by the establishment to divide and diminish the other ideas on the left.

I see nothing sexist or racist in the video. McFeminism legitimately is just pandering garbage covering up harmful and corrupt governments and corporations.

Agreed.

But then I agree with Queen at least insofar as trusting those who read my posts to tell when I'm being serious and when I'm being tongue-in-cheek. I think my views are, to quote Hitchens, "tolerably well-advertised".

There's an interesting poll about support for, particularly, single-payer health insurance in the US: even a majority of Republicans support it.

Congressional Republicans are really, really worried about all the investigations Democrats could do if they retake the House; not just of Trump and the administration, but of them, too. (For instance, why are they blockading election security measures?)

On the other hand, the Democrats appear to have traded eleven appointments (including seven lifetime federal district court seats) for 85,000 pages on Brett Kavanaugh.
