The Young Turks - 1.30.15: Crying Republican, Gay Rights, NYTimes, Suge Knight & Belle Knox

Cenk, John, Jimmy, and Brian Unger hosting. An Idaho bill designed to discriminate against the LGBT community has been voted down, sparking a heartfelt speech from a Republican on the committee that was previously against gay rights. After nearly crying over his newfound compassion, he declared that he will still vote against their rights. The army found itself in the middle of a PR nightmare when they tweeted a message about “chinks in the armor of technology” causing them to immediately take it down. Cenk thinks that although the term, chinks in armor has nothing to do with an Asian slur, it still makes people’s mind go there, similar to niggardly.

Ana replaces John for SCS. A NYT editor responded to criticism of the mainstream media and admitted that they totally dropped the ball on reporting the real news after 9-11, not being aggressive enough in asking questions about going into the Iraq War. Suge Knight has turned himself in after running over two people while trying to leave the set of a movie. One of the victims died of his injuries. Former Duke student, turned porn actress Belle Knox is planning on starting up a political career as a Conservative, formulating her stances behind Ayn Rand.

The Young Turks - 1.22.15: Senate on Climate Change, Joni Ernst, Mitt Romney vs. Huckabee & Marijuana News

Ben, Ana, and Iadarola hosting. The Senate passed an amendment to the Keystone Pipeline bill that declared climate change is not a hoax. Only one Senator voted against it. Sen Jim Inhofe voted in favor of this amendment, but took to the Senate floor later in the day to call climate change a hoax. BP tweeted that climate change is indeed real, but it has been taken down. Additionally, Mitt Romney admitted that he’s one of those Republicans that believes climate change is real. GOP Senators overwhelmingly rejected amendments that used the term “significantly” when describing human contributions to climate change. Ben points out that Romney and Jeb Bush met this week, possibly to talk about their separate plans to run for president. After Joni Ernst responded to the SOTU address with a poor upbringing story, it has been discovered that her family received nearly $500K in farm subsidies. She also debated that she is against subsidies while campaigning. Video of Mitt Romney’s ad that targeted Mike Huckabee with a Willie Horton-style message, that he never ran in the 2008 campaign. Ben talks about the horrible details of the serial rapist Huckabee released in Arkansas.

Facebook looks to combat scam stories and inaccurate news stories that mislead many users. The reporting of false news stories would be reported by other users, and after enough users have reported a story as fake, it would be eliminated. The potential problem with this new policy is that disagreeable users will just flag a story that is against their views, but not fake or misleading. As marijuana gets discussed more for legalization, the question of whether or not it can be considered a performance enhancing drug, as it helps some people focus and lower anxiety. Jamaica is considering decriminalizing marijuana.

Ben talks about the negative response he got after reviewing the movie American Sniper. Seth Rogen tweeted about how the movie resembles the film inside the film Inglorious Basterds. He was also condemned for comparing the sniper movie to one about a Nazi sniper. Talk about the things Chris Kyle openly said that illustrated negative parts of his character. After Fox News was flooded with ridicule for their “No Go Zones” talking points, they were forced to finally apologize for the false narrative.

Video of Bobby Jindal continuing to push the false narrative, but getting challenged by the CNN reporter in England.

A 5 year old kid was given a bill from his friend’s mother after he RSVPed to their birthday party, but couldn’t come due to being double booked. Ana talks about party etiquette. David Cameron is catching heat for trying to force social media and app companies to allow a backdoor access point for the government to spy on users. President Obama has come out in favor of this move, to monitor bad guys that use the services for wrongdoing.

The Young Turks - 1.19.15: SOTU, Fox News, MLK Day, Middle Class Racism & Lone Star Hate

Johnny Pie & Ben “The Tank” Mankiewicz host TYT. President Obama will be proposing new tax reform policy and will be presenting it at tomorrow’s SOTU address. Fox News and Friends react to the proposal saying that President Obama is playing with politics and it is designed to enrage Republicans. Eric Holder has made a big move in “civil asset forfeiture” by limiting some of the amount of assets that the government can seize during a crime. In honor of MLK day, John and Ben read and take note of quotes by Martin Luther King. John has a slight disagreement with one of the quotes about religion and science.

Ben and Ana host the SCS “Banana Hour”. A new study from the Pew Research Center reveals that African Americans who were raised in middle class families find out that their income drops upon leaving home and have difficulty maintaining the same income when growing up. In Oklahoma, Police Chief Lewis Ross was shot by Dallas Horton for wrongfully raiding his home. There were claims of racism as Dallas, a white man, was not charged with the shooting. Police Chief Lewis Ross is an African American. A group of 500 moderate Muslims gathered in Texas to speak out against extremists in the Muslim community, but was met with protesters who were against the gathering of the moderate Muslims.

After Fox’s terrorism analyst Steve Emerson caught hell for claiming that Birmingham England is ‘totally Muslim’ he was worried that his job is at stake and told the BBC about it. In reality, Fox News has been going crazy with the talking point of “No Go Zones.” Video of Hasselbeck talking with another expert about the no go zones, comparing them to breeding grounds like Afghanistan after 9-11. Video compilation of Fox News characters reiterating the term over and over since the attack. A guns group called The Truth About Guns conducted several simulations to find out what could’ve happened if the Charlie Hebdo offices had a gunman inside to respond to the attackers. They found that in every scene, the victims would’ve still died. After France’s Unity Rally in response to the terrorist attacks, the French government has arrested 54 people, including one well-known comedian for being anti-Semitic or “apologists for terrorists.”

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Update on the students that were assaulted by police after Ohio State won the national championship. Ana points out that there were many more fires and instances of violence being initiated by rowdy students. The reason they pepper sprayed the celebrating kids was because the fire trucks couldn’t get through to tend to the fires. Cenk and Ana argue, causing Cenk to ask for a poll from the TYT audience to decide. Videos of Nancy Grace arguing with rapper 2 Chainz about the legalization of marijuana. Ana believes that Nancy Grace is dangerous. NASCAR driver Kurt Busch is fighting a restraining order that has been placed against him by his ex girlfriend.
