This is a group that has no problems using violence and destruction of property as a means of silencing their political opposition. Now the media is defending them and their justification for violence. In the eyes of the main stream left you are a "fascist" if you oppose them. This is a serious problem that is going to force otherwise moderate people to the extremes.



also notice that at no point is ANTIFA labeled "communist" or "far left", while those on the regularly saddled with negative labels. Remember how they treated the peaceful Tea Party? I do.

I suppose we shouldn't be surprised that a network that hires a self described communist revolutionary would defend communist foot soldiers.

They certainly do not have the reputation in the real world that they have on here.
But then anything normal never does.

what a lost tool. This is where we are headed if we don't stop this line of thinking.

Who gets to decide who is right and who is wrong? This pinhead? Sure white supremacists are a nasty hate filled group of idiots. That doesn't make ANTIFA more correct when they oppose them. It just gives the white supremacists some legitimacy, some attention, and somewhere to channel their anger.

A few dozen WS showed up. If they were ignored, would they grow in numbers, or would they eventually just go away?

His high horse is no different then theirs. This guy is wrong.

How could anyone defend a bunch of thugs that cover their faces and bring hammers to peaceful protest? They honestly remind me of the young men given machetes during the Rwanda genocides.They committed some of the most hideous atrocities of modern times and I bet most of them could care less about the issues. They had a license to commit violence and kill and they did. Some people will use any excuse to be violent. I would love to see a interview of these ANTIFA folks, I would love to see how informed and educated they are on the issues that they are so violent about.

Since when is CNN the real world?
More like Leftist fantasy world.
But it figures that you would defend them as well.

I don't think he understands that the "real world" is a big fat lie.

Of course the Communist News Network is going to defend Antifa.

It's their very own brownshirt private militant company.

Next thing you know they'll say stuff like don't read emails, and a group of people were just out for a walk one night in Benghazi.

This is especially disgusting given that Cuomo and cnn can help but get the vapors when a trump fan flips one of them off, and go on for weeks discussing how trump is causing media members lives to be in danger

Yet when Antifa this week physically assualted a reporter, not only does cnn not call out this actual violence against reporters from the left, coumo discusses how their violence is more just

Cuomo is employed by a terrorist group masquerading as a TV network. So....

Organizers planned a rally in Washington, D.C., this time, but the turn out of white supremacists was thankfully pathetic, which is why I didn't have to go there and cover it.

No, Chris Cuomo, you didn't go and cover it because you're scared of getting into the midst of such potential powder keg.

I don't blame you--I wouldn't go in the middle of that display of idiocy, either, but let's not pretend that CNN could foresee the future, knew that there would be a smaller number of people, so they didn't plan to send you. Either that, or you are one of the people hiding behind a mask.

Cuomo is a buffoon. Trump was not wrong for blaming both sides for the violence and rioting that broke out a year ago, because both sides are at fault. People choose to act and react, and in those choices lie culpability. Anyone arguing differently is a Cuomo...I mean, buffoon as well.

This type of grandstanding and virtue signaling by these commentators (not journalists) is asinine. The president doesn't "[need] to call out the bigots and white supremacists" specifically when he makes this statement:

The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!

For the folks who always bitch and drone on about Trump not being presidential, there it is--that's a very presidential statement. Just because Cuomo wants to wine about it not saying what he thinks that it should is irrelevant to what it actually is and does say.

The fact that Cuomo is now on record claiming that Antifa is "on the side of right" and that he distances them from being bigots only solidifies what CNN is--it is a media outlet founded in being an apologist for the left, no matter how abhorrent the people on the left act sometimes (and, yes, Antifa is a leftist organization). And to compare Antifa to civil-rights activists should leave those of us who applaud said activists perplexed and frustrated. I don't know about anyone else, but there is zero in common between dramatized outrage over personal opinions of private citizens and people who were being systemically and illegally robbed of their freedoms and dignity as Americans. Anyone who makes such comparisons is a pathetic tool. If that comment stings, maybe take a few minutes to look in the mirror and contemplate your beliefs.

And I can't help but believe that, as he was reading these words into the camera, there were all kinds of producers and production folks nodding in approval, and I bet that he got some high fives and applauding at the commercial break afterwards.

No, Mr. Cuomo, the law doesn't always take care of your "moral" uses of violence by Antifa members and violent protestors--to claim such a think is utter lunacy.

As for his closing, it sounds like he took that directly from Maxine Waters (who may have written the monologue, who knows):

Those hateful few who take solace and encouragement from the president's efforts, my message is simple: Be aware. There are many more of us who see you as unequal--as less than--and you will be opposed at every turn. Because what you are about is wrong, and fighting you is right.

More rabblerousing from the left with national media platforms from which to do it. Nice.

Let's not kid ourselves, this whole waste of five minutes was all about trying to rally the troops and make them think that violence against people who have ideas that they oppose is okay and morally superior. What a douche.

For anyone who doesn’t want to or can’t watch the video I’ll give a summary.

Basically he’s saying that it’s okay for ANTIFA to be violent against the Unite The Right group because they are being violent against something that they perceive as evil. Even though Unite The Right was exercising their right of freedom of speech, was authorized to be there and was being non violent, it doesn’t matter because you know, feelings.
