CNN’s Chris Cuomo was just exposed by the Daily Wire.
Cuomo recently tried to claim that he has always been against the rioting that we have seen over the past year from the likes of Black Lives Matter and Antifa, but the Daily Wire points out in a new report that this is simply a lie.
Cuomo’s latest claim
The past week witnessed the sixth month anniversary of the January 6th Capitol riot. Cuomo and some of his CNN colleagues decided to reflect on that incident.
During a segment on “Cuomo Prime Time,” Cuomo made the claim that Republicans have downplayed the January 6th Capitol riot because they think that it wasn’t as bad as the riots that we have seen from Black Lives Matter and Antifa over the past year. Cuomo made the statement that the violence of the January 6th riot is “no less the truth because Black Lives Matter supporters committed acts of violence, too.”
Then, Cuomo made a statement in which he claimed that he has always been against the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots.
“Even if you want to believe that the media was okay with what they [i.e. Black Lives Matter et al] did — which sure as hell isn’t true on this show — but even if you want to say they were, it doesn’t change this.”
As the Daily Wire goes on to point out, that claim from Cuomo – that he has always been against Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots – is not supported by public statements that Cuomo has made in the past. In fact, on numerous occasions, Cuomo has made the claim that such violence was justified by the circumstances.
In June of 2020, for example, Cuomo said: “too many see the protests as the problem. No, the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets — persistent and poisonous inequities and injustice.”
And, about a week after the January 6th Capitol riot, Cuomo explained why, in his opinion, the Black Lives Matter riots were justified whereas the Capitol riot was not. He said: “Overturning the election is different than being pissed off about being shot by cops.”
The Daily Wire, in its report, notes that Cuomo briefly moved away from defending the riots of Black Lives Matter and Antifa ahead of the 2020 election due to concerns that it would hurt the Democrats. After that election, he resumed the defense.
Now, the same thing appears to be happening: the 2022 midterm elections are right around the corner and polls are showing that Americans do not like either the Democrats’ anti-police agenda or the rise in violence that has been witnessed across the country. So, Cuomo is suddenly trying to claim that he has always been against far-left riots.
It just goes to show that Democrats will say or do whatever needs to be said or done to win elections.
