Default ABSURD: CNN’s Chris Cuomo defends violent Antifa protesters — but chanting ‘CNN sucks

Cuomo has officially gone insane.

How can you say this crap with a straight face?

ABSURD: CNN’s Chris Cuomo defends violent Antifa protesters — but chanting ‘CNN sucks’ was wrong

On CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime” Monday, host Chris Cuomo defended the Antifa protesters who attacked police and reporters at the “Unite the Right” rally in Washington, D.C., over the weekend.

“You attack cops, you slap the media, you are in the wrong,” Cuomo said. “But 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 that’s going to be held to the standard of doing something wrong.

“But when someone comes to call out bigots and it gets hot, physical, are they equally as wrong as the bigots they’re fighting? I argue no,” Cuomo continued. “Fighting 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. That’s what Trump did wrong last year.”

Then he turned his focus to President Donald Trump.


“He needed to call out the bigots and the white supremacists and he didn’t,” Cuomo said. “Why? And why does he therefore have unprecedented support from these fringe elements of white power? Two wrongs, and what is right? The bigots are wrong to hit. Antifa or whomever, anarchists or malcontents 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.”

The absurdity of Cuomo’s argument, particularly after CNN’s recent meltdown over a crowd of Trump supporters who chanted “CNN sucks” at a Florida rally, is mind-numbing, Glenn Beck pointed out on the “Glenn Beck Radio Show” Tuesday.

“Let me just remind CNN that you just preached to us for almost two weeks about how chanting ‘CNN sucks’ is going to lead to violence and how wrong it is,” Glenn said. “Now you have Chris Cuomo saying if you show up to stop bigots — well even if it turns violent — it’s not wrong.”
