CNN’s Don Lemon approved of the violence done by domestic terror group ANTIFA in his live television program on Tuesday. He praised the group for “fighting racist fascists” and defended their violent past by saying “no organization is perfect.”

“It says it right in the name: Antifa. Anti-fascism, which is what they were there fighting,” he said. “Listen, no organization is perfect. There was some violence. No one condones violence, but there were different reasons for Antifa and for these neo-Nazis to be there. One, racists, fascists, the other group, fighting racist fascists. There is a distinction there.”

ANTIFA has been involved in a growing number of violent assaults all over the country. Just to show a few, here’s a video from an altercation involving an NBC reporter in Charlottesville:

The conversation started after President Trump told evangelical leaders at the White House that losses in the midterm elections could lead to liberals “violently” overthrowing his accomplishments.

“There’s violence. When you look at Antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people,” Trump explained.

But Lemon was not the only CNN talking head to excuse the violence of ANTIFA. CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin said by criticizing ANTIFA, it was an “appeal to racism” and said that ANTIFA “is widely perceived as an African-American organization.”

“Let’s be clear also about what’s going on here, the theme here is ‘I’m Donald Trump and I’ll protect you from the scary black people,’ ” Toobin said on Wolf Blitzer’s “The Situation Room.”

“Antifa is widely perceived as an African-American organization and this is just part of the same story of LeBron James and Don Lemon and Maxine Waters and the NFL players and the UCLA basketball players,” Toobin explained.
