Cenk Uygur is a sick man. He openly bragged about groping tits in New Orleans while drunk. Does he really think this behavior is acceptable in the #MeToo era?
It turns out that Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks is a very sexist and misogynistic individual. Uygur has been exposed for writing several blog posts in the early 2000s that were highly insensitive and demeaning towards women.
“Young Turks” creator and host Cenk Uygur made multiple graphic and disparaging remarks about women in his early days as a blogger, including saying that women were genetically “flawed” because they don’t want to have sex often enough.
TheWrap found the blog posts, from the early 2000s, in online archives. In an interview with TheWrap, Uygur apologized and said he deleted the “ugly” posts a decade ago because “I don’t stand by them.”
“The stuff I wrote back then was really insensitive and ignorant,” Uygur said. “If you read that today, what I wrote 18 years ago, and you’re offended by it, you’re 100 percent right. And anyone who is subjected to that material, I apologize to. And I deeply regret having written that stuff when I was a different guy.”
If he thinks he can get away with this awful behavior by issuing a simple apology, he is sorely mistaken. We are in the age of #MeToo and apologies are not enough. I mean, some of this stuff that he said is just plain shocking. And he thought he could cover up his misogyny by deleting those blog posts. Nice try Cenk!
It is hard to believe that a respectable JewTube personality like Uygur would view women like this. It’s obvious that he views women as sex objects. And who does he think he is demanding that he be able to grab a woman’s tits after the third date? And an orgasm after the fifth date? This type of sexism is outrageous!
In an entry from 2000, Uygur complained about not having enough sex while living in Miami: “It seems like there is a sea of tits here, and I am drinking in tiny droplets. I want to dive into the whole god damn ocean,” he wrote. “Obviously, the genes of women are flawed. They are poorly designed creatures who do not want to have sex nearly as often as needed for the human race to get along peaceably and fruitfully.”
In another entry, “Rules of Dating,” Uygur described how fast physical intimacy should progress.
“Women, ignore these at your peril,” he wrote. “Rule 1: There must be some serious making out by the third date. If I haven’t felt your tits by then, things are not about to last much longer. In fact, if you don’t get back on track by the fourth date, you’re done.”
He added: “Rule 2: There must be orgasm by the fifth date.”
To make matters worse, Uygur bragged about groping tits while drunk in New Orleans!
In a a post archived in 2003, he wrote about carousing with numerous women in New Orleans while drunk.
“I had one of the best nights of my life at Mardi Gras. I kissed over 23 different women, saw and felt countless breasts, and was in a wonderful drunken stupor thanks to my friend John Daniels,” reads the post.
John Daniels is sometimes used as a nickname for Jack Daniels whiskey. Uygur told TheWrap that all of the behavior he described had been consensual.
The posts were written during the earliest years of Uygur’s career as a journalist on YoungTurk.com — which today redirects to a website for The Young Turks.
His friend David Koller who now holds an upper management position with the Young Turks even used the term “whores in training” when describing teenage girls!
Another post from 2004 described a road trip with Uygur and David Koller, now senior vice president of operations at the Young Turks. The post was written in the style of a diary entry. At one point, “Dave” described chatting up some underage teenage girls he called “whores in training.”
“In one small Pennsylvania town we stopped for gas, and while Cenk filled up I went to talk to these three girls who were walking down the road nearby. Turns out they were three teenage girls, whores in training, literally looking for boys to pick them up,” he wrote. “They were around 14-16 and in a few more years will be pretty damn good looking.”
Koller declined to comment on the matter.
“I don’t want to talk about any of that stuff. Thank you for calling,” he told TheWrap by phone before hanging up.
No comment? Figures, you sexist pig!
Uygur is trying to dismiss these blog posts as something from his past that he regrets. He claims the posts no longer represent who he is as a person. That however, appears to be a lie. How does he explain this tweet? He just posted this back in 2013!
The improbable breasts in Miami are only matched by the improbable butts. This place makes LA look real. #Miami

And then a former employee with his operation had this to say about him.
“Cenk is just a knucklehead. He’s a boy. He talks about women the way I talked when I was 13,” he said. “He’s obsessed with body count — basically how many people you f—ed. This is an important number to him.”
Wow! He sounds like a very immature person!
Of course, this isn’t a surprise. He has serious anger management issues as evidenced by what happened when Alex Jones tried to say “hello” to him at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
At this point, Uygur has no alternative but to resign his position in disgrace. Especially considering that he has pretended to be a progressive supporter of feminist ideologies. He has now been exposed as a massive liar and a fraud. These blog posts prove that he doesn’t believe any of the crap that comes out of his mouth. He’s seriously conned all of you progressive and feminist thinkers!
We must all stand up to sexist pigs like Cenk Uygur. Let your voices be heard! Tell him that you won’t put up with his misogyny. Enough is enough!
