Am unhinged CNN host defended America’s most violent domestic terrorist organization on his show on Tuesday night.
“Listen, no organization’s perfect. There was some violence. No one condones violence, but there were different reasons for Antifa and for these neo-Nazis to be there. One, racists, fascists, the other group, fighting racist fascists. There is a distinction there,” said Don Lemon, host of CNN Tonight.
In other words, it is okay for those who share the political leanings of Lemon to be violent in the streets, because their cause – “fighting neo-Nazis” – is noble and virtuous.
“It says it right in the name: Antifa. Anti-fascism, which is what they were there (in Charlottesville) fighting,” he said.
Lemon is not naive. He knows that Antifa is a violent anarcho-communist group that is simply exists to cause chaos in the streets because they have been taught by the mainstream press to hate President Donald J. Trump. In lockstep with CNN’s normal routine, he is obfuscating the truth and purposefully misleading his audience.
Two weeks ago, CNN’s Chris Cuomo similarly defended Antifa on his show, saying that “not all punches are morally equal.”
A CNN anchor dusted off the age old argument that it is okay to “punch a Nazi” yesterday – on cable news.
“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,” said Chris Cuomo, anchor of “CNN Primetime.”
Cuomo painted radical leftist Antifa members as victims of right-wing hatred, but he did not list a single case of physical violence on that might cause Antifa to have to fight back. Instead, he said that the right’s perceived “bigotry” was enough to warrant a violent response, and that such a response was morally justified because the left is fighting against this perceived “bigotry.”
CNN’s open advocation for violence should be enough to disqualify them as a serious source of news. but their friends in the DNC will never let that happen. Democrats need leftist cable news to continue spewing propaganda on their behalf in order to remain relevant as a political party.

Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”
Project much, Jim?
CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”
Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:
“I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”
Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
