Cenk gets all worked up about U.S. pressure to extradite Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. “U.S. government, cut the crap. You don’t want your horrible secrets revealed? I got a crazy idea for you: Don’t do those horrible acts. I’m an American. I chose to be an American citizen because I love this country and I love the idea of what it stands for. Can we actually stand for it? Can we actually do the right things and be that exceptional country that I wanted to join? There’s nothing exceptional about starting this nonsense war where hundreds of thousands of civilians died and then try to cover it up, and then if anybody tries to reveal it, we say we gotta extradite him.”
