VIDEO: CNN’s Cuomo Loses His Mind After Being Called Out for Defending Antifa

Published

on

Earlier in the month of August, CNN host Chris Cuomo gave a partial defense of the radical left-wing group Antifa, who seem to be embracing violence more and more with each passing day, stating that “fighting hate matters.”

Here’s a snippet from his comments on the group to help provide a little context for the rest of the story:

“I argue to you tonight, all punches are not equal morally. In the eyes of the law, yes. But in the eyes of good and evil, here’s the argument: if you’re a punk that comes to start trouble in a mask and hurt people, you’re not about any virtuous cause. You’re just somebody who’s going to be held to the standard of doing something wrong. But when someone comes to call out bigots and it gets hot, even physical, are they equally wrong as the bigot they are fighting? I argue, no. Fighting against hate matters.”

Well, Wednesday night on his program, Cuomo spoke with Steve Cortes, former Hispanic Advisory Council member to President Trump, where he asked Cortes if the president should apologize for making comments that stoke fear. And it all snowballed from their.

When Cuomo asked Cortes if Trump should apologize for “stok[ing] that kind of fear” about potential violence, Cortes argued that Trump isn’t stoking fear, but rather recognizing that the “very unfortunate reality in America is that political violence is on the rise, on both the right and the left.”

Cuomo clearly wasn’t satisfied with that response, again expressing alarm at Trump’s statement that there are “violent people” on the left.

“A lot of them are,” said Cortes.

“Who’s ‘them’?” asked Cuomo before Cortes could finish the thought.

“Antifa is ‘them,'” Cortes stressed, pointing to Trump’s direct reference to Antifa. As Cuomo maintained his look of befuddlement, Cortes continued: “Chris, look, when people, when a thug puts on a mask, whether that mask is a racist Klansman’s hood or whether it is a radical Antifa’s black mask … When they do that and when they resort to political violence, which has been done, on both sides, it is totally unacceptable in a decent society in America.”

“Who disagrees with that? If you break the law, then you’re a rioter and a thug and criminal,” said Cuomo.

“You know who disagrees unfortunately, Chris?” Cortes responded. “You do. Because you equivocated on this very point on your show.”

Before Cortes could get his full statement out, Cuomo launched into his indignant self-defense, in which he made clear again that he believes that violence from far-left Antifa is different than violence from far-right racists.

“I never equivocated on anything!” insisted an agitated Cuomo in a raised voice. “You let your righty mouthpieces twist my words for effect to enhance a bigoted agenda, and now you’re going to sell it — and it’s a mistake on this show. I said very clearly and people can check my words, ‘You break the law you’re a criminal and a thug!’ I said don’t create a moral equation between those who preach hate and those who fight it because not all punches are equal. And I stand by that. But I never endorsed Antifa. Don’t sell B.S. to my face! Do it behind my back where you’re better at it!”

Cuomo went on to say that he’s not “pro-Antifa” — though if you read those initial comments above, it certainly seems he has a soft spot for the group, wouldn’t you agree? Seems like it!

Here’s a clip of the exchange:

There’s absolutely no room for physical violence in modern day political discourse in America. We have liberty and freedom to speak our minds in a civilized manner, engaging each other’s worldview by presenting facts and well made arguments.

Unfortunately, doing that takes a degree of tolerance for another person’s point of view, and despite claims to the contrary, the left does not possess said tolerance. If they did, much more civil discourse would be had in this country and our nation wouldn’t be stagnating.

Minnesota is once again on fire, this time due to the death of Daunte Wright at the hands of now-former police officer Kim Potter. Potter pulled her gun on Wright, but meant to fire her taser. Is the MSM asking why Potter was forced to pull out a weapon in the first place? Meaning, what actions did Wright take that made Potter act? Wright couldn’t have been resisting arrest, right? He was completely compliant…right!?? It’s all a moot point, now. And the Gopher State will continue to burn. From Fox News: Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records. Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minnesota, Hennepin County District Court documents obtained by Fox News show. Here’s a little bit more, but CLICK THE Fox News LINK ABOVE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY!! JUST DO IT! Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed Wright and Driver to spend the night. In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work. […] Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away. https://twitter.com/_mattmckinney/status/1382362210702290952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1382362210702290952%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-brooklyn-center-police-officer-to-be-charged-with-2nd-degree-manslaughter%2F BLM and lefties are always, always, always defending criminals.

Dem-Controlled House Unveils ‘Court Packing’ Legislation, Want 13 Justices on SCOTUS

All politicians are crooked. That isn’t exactly a secret. But at least Republicans actually love their country. That’s a huge difference. Not great, but it’s something. These Democrats, though, only care about one thing. They crave it, in fact. Complete control. From Fox News: Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court. More from The Intercept: The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, reaching as many as ten seats before settling on nine in 1869. In 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that, if Hillary Clinton were elected, the Republican Senate should keep Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat empty, effectively bringing the number of justices down to eight. Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the Court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama, and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then, after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks. By expanding SCOTUS under a radically far-left president, socialists liberals will be able to ensure they get their way on every issue – all. the. time. That is, of course, GOD-willing, until a Republican gets back into the White House. If that…
