Did you know The Young Turks is a real group, cause and ideology? Do you know the history of the original Young Turks? Did you ever wonder why a news station, MSNBC (until 2011) would choose to air a show with such a title? I didn’t think so.
Well, here is a mini history lesson on the original Young Turks, which first popped-up its ugly head in WWI. Yes it was connected to the Ottoman Empire – which includes Turkey. Its Sultan Mehmed the 5th was just a figure head, the real leader was Enver Pacha of The Young Turks, a nationalist organization, who quickly joined forces with Kaiser Wilhelm II of the German Empire, who out bid England for allegiance.
The Young Turks (TYT) had an army of one million men, who were assigned to fight Russia, entering thru The Caucasus (a border region inhabited by Muslims.) It was assumed that these Muslims would rise against Mother Russia if war was declared. Do you see now why even today Putin holds an iron grip on that region? Seventy-thousand of Pasha’s troops were killed and no Muslims rose-up for The Holy War that he was hoping to start.
So here is where it starts getting interesting, Pasha needs a scape-goat for all the war deaths, so enter Turkey’s Armenian people (who are Christians) – tag, you’re It. So the order for genocide is given, to the eventual tune of one million dead. No regard for age or sex is given.TYT hang the intellectuals and community leaders (they got off easy.) The women and children were brutalized, raped and murdered. The survivors – how the hell did any survive — were herded to camps in Syria, via a death march thru the desert. Denied food and water along the way, most died. There you have it in a nutshell on The Young Turks history. (For more read “The Young Turks” at Wikipedia)
For the former TV show (and current internet news show) titled The Young Turks, (TYT), it is NOT as benign as a person would think. That title was carefully chosen by someone from that culture, who knows damn well what it stands for. So the next time you’re contemplating on watching Cenk Uygur and curious on what he has to say … think again. Don’t set yourself up to be influenced by his pro-Islamic opinion. And don’t become an apologist for Cenk…Oh, he didn’t know about TYT from that long ago…b.s. If Muslims are anything, they are methodical, patient and liars.
So why and what gives with MSNBC’s complacency and kum-by-ya-ness with Islam? Producing and promoting a show called The Young Turks hosted by Cenk Uygur? By choosing, or should I say allowing such a show in the first place? TYT cause is not news driven, it is ideologically driven, never forget it. MSNBC is responsible for the beginning of TYT resurrection from history and has jettisoned it into the popular online mainstream media.
Today no longer on MSNBC, The Young Turks is the largest online news show in the world, with over 1.5 billion views and counting.
The Young Turks co-founder is Cenk Uygur of the associated TYT Network, he is a naturalized U.S. citizen and he was born in Turkey. Oh, yes, he knows all about TYT, title of yester-year.
