CNN host, Chris Cuomo, likes to switch up the truth on a nightly on his phony show. When called out for coming out in support of ANTIFA, Cuomo claims he never did – Which is a lie. Nevertheless, Cuomo couldn’t handle being back into the corner and lashed out like a rabid dog.
“I never endorsed Antifa. Don’t sell BS to my face. Do it behind my back when you are better at it,” Cuomo whined.
Cuomo said “all punches are not equal morally” when it comes to bigots. However, he acknowledged that two punches are actually equal “in the eyes of the law.”
“People who show up to fight against bigots are not to be judged the same as the bigots, even if they do resort to the same petty violence,” Cuomo said.
Cuomo’s claim that he didn’t say ANTIFA was fighting against hate was destroyed by CNN‘s own script. Here is what he said:
“When you use your hands in a violent way, you are a rioter. And unless you’re justified in defending yourself and you hit someone, you’re a thug, you’re a criminal. You attack cops, you slap the media, you are in the wrong, period.”
He should have stopped there but Cuomo added:
“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 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.”
When exactly did ANTIFA fight against hate? When were they just merely ‘defending themselves’? Another issue I take with Cuomo’s ‘violence is ok if it’s virtuous’ stance is who virtue, in this case, is a matter of opinion. Especially now that each parties views are so drastically different.
