Cuomo Lashes Out at ‘Rabid Right,’ Doubles Down on Killing White Kids

0 14


As NewsBusters documented, last Friday, disturbed CNN Prime Time host Chris Cuomo went on a truly unhinged screed about how white kids needed to be killed in order to get movement on gun control and abolishing the police. Unfortunately, Cuomo opened Monday’s show by doubling down on his vile sentiment and lashing out at the “rabid right” that called him out on it, suggesting they didn’t care about black and poor people.

Cuomo re-upped his demented position during his opening monologue by reminding viewers of his wild-eyed tirade from Friday. “Now, I don’t know if you were watching Friday night. But I said something that every one of you knows to be true,” he proclaimed, without evidence. “If what we’re seeing in these communities were happening to kids in suburbs, to adults in suburbs. If they suffered the same fate as we see too often with these black kids. If they died in policing situations, things would change.”

Continuing with his narrative, he claimed that COVID, the global pandemic that caused the American economy to shut down, wasn’t taken seriously until it was hurting rich folks. Notice how Cuomo started to expand the narrative from just race to class as well:

Look at heroin. Prescription opioids. Meth. In poor areas, “bad habits, bad families.” Suburbs, “we have a major crisis. We must fight addiction.” Laws, legislation, help, crisis, politics. Do you know how many black girls go missing every year? They don’t become household names. They’re not the center of major manhunts like when they’re affluent whites.

Even COVID. Once it was ravaging middle or upper-class communities, well after the poor had got hit and hit hard. That’s when it became a crisis.

Cuomo was not living in reality, unless that’s what his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) did to his state.

 

 

“It’s obvious, right? No. It is only obvious for the reasonable,” he declared, his face becoming more contorted as he worked himself up into another roid rage to lash out at the right. “On the rabid right, it was weaponized as a threat, what I said. ‘See? They want your kids to die. They want white kids to die to end policing problems.’

Cuomo once claimed he was “black on the inside,” but he apparently underwent a transformation to white again to defend himself. “Now, look. On its face, that’s absurd. I’m white. Why would I want that,” he rhetorically asked.

He’s the same guy that had been a vocal supporter of the left-wing domestic terrorist group Antifa and encouraged Black Lives Matter riots during the summer of 2020.

Later on in the A-block, Cuomo was speaking with liberal CNN commentator Van Jones and former Baltimore Deputy Police Commissioner Anthony Barksdale when claimed the right “weaponizes” his words because they were fine with George Floyd’s death:

But there is a reason why the right weaponizes words like mine, looks at situations like this and says these people have a problem. Looks at what happens with George Floyd and said “this is not an example of a bad white guy. It is an example of a bad black guy.” And they are every bit as invested in that argument and people who are asking for change.

The world doesn’t revolve around you, Chris. You’re a bad-faith actor who can’t think beyond partisan hackery. One could side with Floyd, think police reform was needed, and think your comments were abhorrent. It seems you were right about one thing: “This has become the battleground for the ugliest politics of division.”

Chris Cuomo’s unhinged and dangerous ramblings were made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Nutrisystem and  Panera Bread. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund.

CHRIS CUOMO: This has become the battleground for the ugliest politics of division.

Now, I don’t know if you were watching Friday night. But I said something that every one of you knows to be true. If what we’re seeing in these communities were happening to kids in suburbs, to adults in suburbs. If they suffered the same fate as we see too often with these black kids. If they died in policing situations, things would change.

Look at heroin. Prescription opioids. Meth. In poor areas, “bad habits, bad families.” Suburbs, “we have a major crisis. We must fight addiction.” Laws, legislation, help, crisis, politics. Do you know how many black girls go missing every year? They don’t become household names. They’re not the center of major manhunts like when they’re affluent whites.

Even COVID. Once it was ravaging middle or upper-class communities, well after the poor had got hit and hit hard. That’s when it became a crisis.

It’s obvious, right? No. It is only obvious for the reasonable. On the rabid right, it was weaponized as a threat, what I said. “See? They want your kids to die. They want white kids to die to end policing problems.”

Now, look. On its face, that’s absurd. I’m white. Why would I want that? But this is not about the facts. It’s about fear. These people on the fringe want you afraid. They want you to fear diversity and being replaced.
