Far-left YouTube host Cenk Uygur vowed to go to war with the Democratic establishment in order to secure the nomination for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) after a disastrous Super Tuesday showing for the socialist democrat candidate.

Uygur conceded his own campaign run for one of California's seats in the U.S. House of Representatives after receiving only 5% of the vote.

In a rant on his popular The Young Turks channel, Uygur went on a rant against the Democratic establishment for what he perceived as lies to help their favored candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden.

"No matter what happens tonight, If the establishment media continues to lie about Biden's record, we all have to go and collectively and kick their g*dd**n a**es, of course, not physically, we're progressives," Uygur said.

Uygur blamed the mainstream media for Sanders failing to secure the nomination on Super Tuesday.

"We thought it was almost over, Bernie was gonna win, now it's not over, now we're in a tie! And now we got absolute dig-in warfare against the establishment! But we didn't start the war, they started the war!" he yelled.

"You wanna go to war, we'll go to war!" he exclaimed later in the broadcast. "And that is what this is. We cannot let Biden win!"

Uygur criticized Biden as a weak candidate with serious flaws that would lose to President Donald Trump in the general election.

"Guys not just on progressives versus establishment, this is so important, I need you to understand this, Biden is not going to beat Trump!" he continued.

"Biden is either near senile or actually senile, watch any of the tapes! And Biden lies nonstop! He's gonna get caught!" Uygur exclaimed emphatically.

"And when Trump comes for him, he's not gonna beat Trump!" he concluded.

Sanders was widely considered to be on the path to obtaining the nomination before Biden surpassed him in the delegate count with stunning victories across the board on Super Tuesday.
