CNN propagandist Chris Cuomo: Antifa’s fight is moral — Video

On Monday, CNN propagandist Chris Cuomo suggested that violence carried out by Antifa terrorists is somehow okay because their cause is moral and just, even though they attacked police and reporters while others advocated murdering President Trump.

According to the Daily Wire:

The segment came after a couple of dozen racists came out in support of the “Unite the Right” rally and were met by a large gathering of Antifa thugs who ended up attacking reporters and police officers.

Cuomo downplayed Antifa’s violence by saying they only “confronted” police and “berated” journalists.

“All punches are not equal morally,” Cuomo said. “In the eyes of the law, yes.”

“When someone comes to call out bigots and it gets hot, even physical, are they equally wrong as the bigot they are fighting?” he asked. “I argue no. Fighting against hate matters … 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.”

He also attacked Trump for condemning violence and bigotry.

“Fighting hate is right,” he said, comparing Antifa terrorists to civil rights activists and combat soldiers. “That’s why 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 kinds of petty violence.”

Petty?  Threatening to muder the president is now petty in Cuomo’s eyes?

Here’s video of Cuomo’s statement:

Others responded:

This… is CNN.  Let that sink in.
