CNN’s Cuomo Defends Antifa: Those Who Oppose Hate Are On The Side Of Right
He’s pushing the Antifa line… Funny isn’t it Antifa that always actually start the violence? Look, we can all agree that the fringe right supremacists are all bozo’s, but that doesn’t excuse antifa. I just doesn’t.
So, let me get this right, Antifa should be supported over Nazism? This doesn’t have to be a choice because both Communism and Nazism are failed systems of ruling over people. Anyone that says otherwise is just pushing an agenda.
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said late Monday that Antifa should not be equated with white supremacists, arguing that “in a clash between hate & those who oppose it, those who oppose it are on the side of right” even if they resort to “petty violence.”
“You attack cops, you slap the media, you are in the wrong, period,” Cuomo said in a commentary on “Cuomo Prime Time.” “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,” he continued. “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, even physical, are they equally wrong as the bigot they’re fighting? I argue no. … 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.” More
