Bobby Jindal YouTube Ad Uses Fake Endorsements

March 26, 2009

(ChattahBox)–Cenk Uygur, Host of The Young Turks, a progressive radio talk show, is mad as hell and isn’t taking it anymore. He came out today, posting on his own website, as well as the Daily Kos, the Huffington Post and others, outraged after discovering his voice is used out of context in a recent campaign ad in support of Republican Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal. The You Tube ad, produced by a mysterious outfit named,”AmericaForChange” took snippets of recent statements made by Uygur about Jindal, wildly out of context, making it appear that he was endorsing Jindal, which he is not, never will and never has. In fact, Uygur concluded during his statements, Jindal was “Coo Coo for Cocoa Puffs,” hardly a ringing endorsement.

Uygur says the makers of the You Tube ad; “AmericaForChange” never asked his permission to use his voice. Uygur recognized other “celebrity” voices used in the ad, also not known to endorse Jindal, such as Chris Matthews of MSNBC, David Gregory of NBC, Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post and Chris Wallace of Fox News. Uygur thinks even the voices of Jay Leno and Alan Colmes may also be mixed into the fake endorsements.

The one voice, that probably is a true supporter, thought to be recognized, on the ad (not confirmed) is that of Texas Evangelist David Barton, a determined fundamental revisionist, who claims our country’s founders did not intend for a separation of church and state and that such an anti-Christian concept is a big myth. Huh? Barton is the current right-wing Christian warm up act for Newt Gingrich.

Uygur makes clear he is not a supporter of Jindal and his philosophies, anything but. Jindal recently spoke before a Republican fundraiser where he came out passionately speaking for his right to say he hopes Obama fails. Jindal claimed that anyone criticizing Rush Limbaugh’s call for Obama to fail is “political correctness run amok.” Jindal also joined other southern governors, turning down part of the Stimulus Funds for much needed jobless benefits for his suffering state. JIndal was also involved in an “exorcism of a college friend, while attending Brown University, during which he claimed to have smelled sulphur, the sign of the devil.

Jindal heads to Senator McCain’s Arizona ranch this weekend along with Mitt Romney and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist for a 2012 vice-presidential audition.

Uygar is demanding that Jindal “renounce this practice of using unauthorized, out of context quotes from people who have no interest in endorsing or praising Gov. Jindal.”
