CNN’s Chris Cuomo Goes Full Antifa

Posted on | August 15, 2018 | 1 Comment


Never go full antifa:

CNN’s Chris Cuomo argued Monday night Antifa protesters are wrong to hit people, police, and reporters, “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 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.
“Fighting against hate matters,” he added.
“I argue to you tonight, all punches are not equal morally,” he said. “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,” Cuomo concluded.

On the remote chance that Chris Cuomo might actually be reading this blog, I must ask: Who gets to define “hate,” Chris? Who is in charge of deciding who the “bigots” are? Because while it may seem obvious to you in this particular case, it is by no means always obvious.

Perhaps, Mr. Cuomo, you are not familiar with the history of fascism, and how the Communists circa 1930, having determined that bourgeois liberals and democratic socialists were their real enemies, pursued a strategy that enabled the Nazis to gain power in Germany. All during the so-called “Popular Front” era, of course, Communists made “anti-fascism” their slogan, up until August 1939, when Stalin and Hitler reached an agreement for the partition of Poland (the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact), which precipitated World War II.

Endorsing mob violence in the name of “fighting against hate,” Mr. Cuomo, not only raises the question of what constitutes “hate,” but amounts to an endorsement of a might-makes-right ideology, where political decision-making becomes a matter of numerical superiority and the willingness to employ violence to obtain power.

Where does this lead? Cambodia under Pol Pot. Genocide in Rwanda.

No borders! No wall!
No USA at all!

That’s what your antifa buddies were chanting Sunday, Chris. Do only “bigots” disagree with them? Is it “hate” to love America? Are patriotic Americans expected to surrender our country to an anarchist mob?

Nobody here — not me, nor any of the conservatives I know — is endorsing Nazis. We may sometimes joke about helicopter rides for Commies, but we hope this Pinochet-style solution will be unnecessary. We hope that it will be possible to preserve constitutional liberty despite the mob mentality you endorse, Mr. Cuomo, and despite CNN’s dishonest partisan propaganda that portrays all 63 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump as “bigots” who deserve to be attacked by antifa thugs.

We should thank you, Mr. Cuomo, for taking off the mask, exposing yourself as a dangerous totalitarian who endorses lawless violence, so long as the criminal perpetrators are on your side — i.e., on the side of CNN and the Democrat Party. As law-abiding citizens who are not on your side, we hope that America will not descend into the chaos of mob violence that you and your antifa allies advocate, but if worse comes to worse, we have the means to defend ourselves and our families.
