Cenk Uygur is heading up something called the Justice Democrats in an attempt, as they say, to remake the unDemocratic Party and rid it of it’s bought off corporate leadership. The way they plan to do this is to cultivate and promote locally owned “real” progressives and get them to run for office, local or national, and thus move the party back to the “real” progressive left… in time.
Kyle Kulinski of Secular Talk and a couple of the Sanders campaign planners have joined up with him and created a platform that is sure to appeal to a number of those Sanders supporters who abandoned the Dems in the wake of Hillary Clinton and her team stealing the nomination from them.
Some real outsiders there, huh?
Uygur did an announcement of this group a couple days ago on the Young Turks. Secular Talk did one as well. I think Jimmy Dore in onboard as well since he’s mentioned it favorably after he recently joined the Young Turks.
Let me say this: this is abject opportunism that will go no where… by design. Cenk is a lifelong apologist for the corporate Dems. That’s a roll he has played consistently from 2011 till Nov. 8, 2016 and I have the videos to prove it. Don’t be suckered in by this. This is Cenk doing his sheepdog trick hoping to make himself a little more accessible to the establishment, not oppose it.
You gotta see through this stuff folks.
