CNN Analyst: Trump Attacking Antifa Because It’s ‘Widely Perceived As ‘African-American’ Organization
CNN Analyst Jeffrey Toobin claims that any criticism of Antifa is Donald Trump’s appeal to racism.
“This is about black versus white. This is about Donald Trump’s appeal to racism, and it just happens all the time and we never say it, we don’t say it enough for what it is but that’s what’s going on here.”
When a bunch of white liberal THUGS put on black colored clothes and masks, it does not suddenly make them an African American group.
“Widely perceived” by who? Anyone who knows anything about Antifa knows it’s mostly white upper-middle-class college kids/professional socialists. This guy is an ignoramus.
Jeffrey, wearing black doesn’t make you black. And then notice it’s all about attacking President Donald Trump, not about actually why Antifa deserves to be attacked, called out and arrested.
CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin accused President Donald Trump of racism in his comments to donors warning them of the far-left militants of Antifa.
Trump had spoken with evangelical leaders on Monday night and said Republicans’ opponents are “violent,” naming Antifa as one of the groups engaging in political violence. He warned Republican losses could lead to violence from groups like Antifa, whose members have participated in riots in the past, but Toobin said the comment was coded racism.
“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. “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.” More
