The Young Turks - 2.19.15: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Rudy Giuliani, Obama, Rumsfeld, Nigerian Pastor & Bigot Dr
Cenk hosting today. Kareem Abdul Jabbar went on Morning Joe to distinguish the difference between terrorists and Muslims, comparing them to KKK members and their declaration that they’re Christians. Cenk compares the number of ISIS members are in comparison to the population of Iraq, to the number of Klansmen in comparison to the population of America when they were at their height. Rudy Giuliani told a Conservative group that President Obama doesn’t love America, or its citizens. That he was brought up differently than they rest of the people in the room. When Scott Walker was asked about the controversial comments, he dodged the question twice. President Obama explained why he chooses to not call terrorists Islamic terrorists. Although Cenk disagrees with this thought process, he understands why he took this narrative. Videos of Donald Rumsfeld comparing ISIS terrorists to German agitators of WWII.
