Response to center rising (Reply #14)

25. "Might as well be a Republican"

"While in college, he wrote a column in The Daily Pennsylvanian criticizing affirmative action recruiting at the university and suggesting that all students should be "judged on their merits rather than their physical characteristics."[11] He supported the pro-life position on the abortion issue, criticized the radical aspects of the feminist movement, and felt Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was treated unjustly during his Senate confirmation hearings.[16] He also criticized organized religion as based on mythology and as a divisive force between peoples.[17]

He has stated that he worked for a time for Republican former New York Congressman Joe DioGuardi.[18]

Uygur supported the Gulf War of 1990–1991, and supported the War in Afghanistan from its beginning in 2001 until 2009—though he has strongly opposed the Iraq War.[6] He supported the 2011 military intervention in Libya.

......He previously supported capital punishment, but now opposes it largely due to multiple exonerations of death row inmates since its reinstatement."

I don't buy his conversion for one moment. When Cenk burst onto the talk scene, there was notoriety & money to be made in opposing Bush, and like Ed & Arianna, he jumped on that bandwagon for his own personal enrichment. Don't trust him.
