On his primetime show Monday evening, CNN host Chris Cuomo praised the counter-protesters who showed up in the thousands to disrupt the “Unite the Right” rally in Washington D.C., on Sunday. This comes fresh off NBC ignoring an attack on their own reporter by the left-wing “Antifa” at the protests this past weekend, and it looks like CNN is also happy to defend violence as long as it is being committed by the left, Newsbusters reported.
“In that crowd were ‘anti-fascist’ and Black Lives Matter activists, who heckled and cursed at the police, Secret Service and journalists for showing up. The liberal activists even threw eggs, fireworks and water bottles at officers while concealing their identities with face masks.
“The journalist started off by placidly arguing that violence is violence and attacks on the media were simply ‘wrong.’ But then he tried to justify the violence coming from the left because, according to him, these rioters had the moral upperhand.”
“There’s a lot of about what-aboutism and spin going on. And it’s kind of sickening to me,” he scoffed.
“But I argue to you tonight, all punches are not equal morally,” Cuomo stated, adding that violence from the left was not “morally equivalent:”
“Now, how you fight matters too. There’s no question about that. But drawing a moral equivalency between those espousing hate and those fighting it because they both resort to violence emboldens hate, legitimizes hateful belief and elevates what should be stamped out…The bigots are wrong to hit,” he stated. “Antifa, or whomever, anarchists or malcontent or misguided, they are also wrong to hit. But fighting hate is right. And in a clash between hate and those who oppose it, those who oppose it are on the side of right.”
Cuomo ended his grandiose monologue by praising Antifa for “going to war” with an “evil regime.”
Get out of CNN land and come back to the real world where the rest of us live, Cuomo.
