Cenk Uygur Breathlessly Announces Neoliberal Silicon Valley-Owned Ro Khanna as New Cash Cow of “Justice Dems”

by Scott Creighton

Wow. There’s “CHANGE” huh?

Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks and the sheepdog unDemocratic Party movement, the “Justice Dems”, breathlessly announced via Twitter “Huge news coming up on tonight’s show. Big announcement that’s going to shake up DC

Oh he’s gonna shake up those establishment dems with the acquisition of Ro Khanna, huh?

Let’s see…

“Khanna also served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary in the United States Department of Commerce under President Barack Obama.”

” Khanna received his B.A. degree in economics with honors from the University of Chicago in 1998, where he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.[1][5][6] He attended Yale Law School, receiving his law degree in 2001.”

So he was an Obama appointee in Commerce and attended the University of Chicago School of Economics and Yale?

For those of you who don’t know, the American birthplace of neoliberal ideology was the University of Chicago School of Economics. They brought it over from the London School of Economics. That’s where Milton Friedman taught by the way. Chicago not London.

“Khanna interned for Jack Quinn when Quinn served as the Chief of Staff for Vice President Al Gore.

“Khanna resigned from the Department of Commerce in August 2011 to join Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, a law firm located in Silicon Valley”

So not only is he connected with Barack Obama but he also worked in the Clinton White House under Al Gore. Hmm.

Plus, there is this:

“Khanna has raised $480,500 from the securities and investment industry compared to $170,752 from his next top iindustry, electronics manufacturing. His top company donors so far are Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. and a number of venture capital firms. Khanna lost his bid to unseat Honda in 2014 by fewer than 5,000 votes. That year, he raised $629,950 from financiers, compared to $261,345 from electronics manufacturing.” Open Secrets, June 2016

The unDemocratic Party is certainly aware of Ro’s ability to generate big bucks from Silicon Valley. They know he’s bought and paid for and they want him to win so he can bring his golden touch to help stuff their own coffers with Silicon slush fund money.

Khanna’s candidacy has been pitched to party power-brokers as a way for Democrats to capture a highly lucrative stable of wealthy tech donors

Ro Khanna is the first true Silicon Valley candidate,” Khanna’s campaign chairman Steve Spinner wrote in an email to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta last spring…

Khanna has “received the support of over 600 technology and financial leaders, more than six times what President Obama received in 2012,” Spinner added, before listing off Silicon Valley titans like Google CEO Eric Schmidt, tech’s original mega-donor John Doerr, Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg, and the now-toxic Trump supporter Peter Thiel.

“In this cycle, Ro’s tech and South Asian donors can be a source of at least $50 million for the Democratic Party in national races,” Spinner continued. “Over 70% of Ro’s donors were first time donors, and many will be inspired to give big once Ro wins (or earlier if we can convince Honda to retire & pass the baton to Ro).” The American Prospect, Nov. 2016

Cenk Uygur is pleased as punch to announce Ro is now part of his stable. Why? Because the sell-out Silicon Valley-owned congressman can produce BIG BUCKS for Cenk and his fake “Justice Dems” sheepdogging party, that’s why.

Its the fucking money.

Just like all the other Dems in the unDemocratic Party, Cenk is swooning over the possibility of seeing piles of money sent over from the corporate state landing in his bank accounts. And he can’t help it. That’s how he thinks. That’s why he worked for MSNBC back in the day promoting the illegal regime change in Libya and that’s why he backed Hillary Clinton after she stole the nomination from Sanders voters.

That’s how he thinks. That’s all he thinks. Just like all the rest of em.

If you ever had any question about whether the Justice Dems were legit. Now you know. If you ever wondered about Cenk being legit… I can’t help you there. By now you should be able to see through these guys like a cheap hooker’s skirt on Fleet Week.

  1. Not at all surprised. Khanna is a through-and-through neo-liberal, exactly what the corporate Dems have in mind for their constituents. His campaign site changed tactis, now with emphasis on ‘labor’ and union, which is the very last thing Silicon Valley wants. Some of his private donors, billionaires, denied access to public beaches in California – these are the types of people supporting him. So, yes, naturally Cenk is on board with receiving money, not to mention publicity from Khanna. Sander’s display of utter hypocrisy was equally disgusting – and like you, I’m not a Trump supporter. Trump is merely the symptom of an utterly corrupt political elite which has abandoned the notion of democracy long ago.

  2. […] You are looking DESPERATE Cenk, are progressives not buying your NeoLiberal Hillary BULLSHIT! https://willyloman.wordpress.com/2017/05/12/cenk-uygur-breathlessly-announces-neoliberal-silicon-val… […]
