The Young Turks - 10.20.14: Pumpkin Patch Riots, Cop Pulled Over, Ebola Panic & Republican Hypocrisy

Cenk hosts TYT. A Washington state citizen pulled a cop over and demanded ID and berated him for illegally using the vehicle under state law. Videos of the encounter are shown. Cenk loves this guy, and the cop for cooperating. Cenk points out that the White citizen got more leeway to pull off this brazen act. Jayar and Jesus talk about why this encounter actually annoyed them. Gov Corbett’s website has a banner of citizens lovingly interacting with him, including an elderly Black woman that turned out to be taken from a stock photo where the woman was conversing with her financial advisor. A riot broke out at a college in NH over pumpkins at a festival. Rowdy students flipped cars, attacked police, and were eventually pepper sprayed. Cenk compares this to the way Black Ferguson protesters were characterized in the media when riots broke out over the cops killing unarmed Michael Brown.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. After the pumpkin riots happened, a reporter on the scene was approached by the organizer of the pumpkin festival and attempted to stop his report of the violence. Video of the humorous encounter is played. Misinformation on ebola continues as an elementary school in NJ threw out a few students that are originally from Rwanda, which isn’t even near the countries that are affected. A teacher from Maine has been placed on administrative leave for 21 days since she attended a conference in Dallas, where the Ebala case was detected. The head of the NIH previously stated that if the organization’s funding wasn’t continually cut, we may already have an ebola vaccine, but he’s getting pushback from defenders of the cuts. Cenk stops the story to tell everyone that he just had a massive dejavu. After the Obama Admin named Ron Klein as the “Ebola Czar” that Republicans were clamoring for, they attacked his credentials, but Conservatives didn’t have anything to say about Bush’s Bird Flu czar that had no medical background.
