Black Republican Gets Enraged Over Katrina at RNC
September 4, 2008
The Young Turks have been broadcasting all week long from the Republican National Convention. We have had some really interesting interviews with Duncan Hunter, Heather Wilson, Bob Barr, Sen. Dan Coats, Rep. Bob Latta, Joe Klein, Michael Medved and the list goes on (you can check out a lot of these interviews on our You Tube Channel here).
Although there were great disagreements in many of these interviews, none of them got out of hand ... except one. The founder of HipHopRepublicans.com took exception when I suggested that George Bush might have been late in responding to Hurricane Katrina. He said he was shocked that I would suggest that late response might have cost some people's lives.
He proceeded to knock my mike down and then hit our camera on his way out. He also got within inches of my face as he stood over me.
Cenk Uygur is co-host of The Young Turks, the first liberal radio show to air nationwide.
