The Tahrir Square uprisings in Egypt were some of the most violent protests in modern day history, and yet Cenk Uygur (host of The Young Turks) is calling for the very same event that saw numerous women being beaten and raped on the streets. Recently, he posted the following on Twitter, making his hate for President Donald Trump loud and obnoxiously clear.
@realDonaldTrump fires Robert Mueller, people should go into the streets. It should be Tahrir Square like uprising. We must defend our democracy and the rule of law. This should be a popular uprising like we’ve never seen in America.
The Turkish/American later added that:
If these brownshirts start arresting any
@FBI agents to stop the investigation of @realDonaldTrump, we must take action to save our democracy. No exaggeration. They would be the ones doing “system coup.” A coup against our system of government rather than against the current leader.
Does he actually understand what he’s saying? Why would someone who claims to be an American want this for our country? The Guardian gave us a little insight as to what exactly went down in Tahrir Square:
When Egypt’s army chief announced the forced departure of Mohamed Morsi, the streets around Tahrir Square turned into an all-night carnival. But not everyone there was allowed to celebrate. Among the masses dancing, singing and honking horns, more than 80 women were subjected to mob sexual assaults, harassment or rape. In Tahrir Square since Sunday, when protests against Morsi first began, there have been at least 169 counts of sexual mob crime. “Egypt is full of sexual harassment and people have become desensitized to it – but this is a step up,” said Soraya Bahgat, a women’s rights advocate and co-founder of Tahrir Bodyguard, a group that rescues women from assault. “We’re talking about mob sexual assaults, from stripping women naked and dragging them on the floor – to rape.”
Donald Trump is not an Islamic extremist leader, and yet Cenk Uygur sees him as a “glorified cult leader” who should be banned from our country. Trump is not a dictator either, and yet liberal groups have been formed to “fight Trump and his fascist ways”.
Though Uygur has yet to comment or explain his Tweet, many people were quick to criticize him on his ignorance.
Even CNN says Trump isn’t considering it. Cenk is
Do you realize the majority of Americans support
@realDonaldTrump & think he is doing a great job as @POTUS! people are sick of these investigations! #REDSTATES ARE #MAGA & #2A so if you want to burn your blue states down go ahead we will keep on #MAGA

That’s right, our least favorite show host is telling us all to commit treason while committing treason himself. It’s doubtful that anyone in the mainstream media will call out his behavior, he fits perfectly into the mold that the liberals have created for him.
