The Young Turks - 08.26.14: ISIS, Beheadings, Gay Rights, Sofia Vergara & Flight Etiquette

Ana and Ben hosting. Ben reports about ISIS’ claim that they severed the head of their own official.  Saudi Arabia has beheaded 23 people just in this month based on false confessions for petty crimes like drug possession and black magic. Family members have been threatened and told to stop disputing the killings. Ben points out that we aren’t concerned with this unjust brutality from one of our closest allies in the region. Video of pastor Michael V. Williams’ proposal for a Constitutional Amendment to imprison gays for hard labor is shown. Ben points out his unnecessary turns as he transitions.

At the Emmy’s last night, Sofia Vergara participated in a comedic bit where she was put on a spinning pedestal while a boring speech was given. Outcry on Twitter ensued. A United Airlines flight was heading to Denver, but was forced to land in Chicago when a passenger altercation over legroom broke out. One passenger bought a device that restricts the seat in front of him from reclining and it turned into water being thrown in his face. Ben rules that both passengers are wrong.
