Leftist media and politicians seem to have a soft spot for the domestic terrorist group Antifa, specifically CNN’s Chris Cuomo who has once again made nice comments about them.
While on a panel during his show, Cuomo certainly seemed upset about the
“You talk about Antifa! I’ve watched them in the streets protesting in different situations,” said Cuomo. “There are certainly aspects of them that are true to a cause.”
“That is a good cause. They want social justice. They want whatever they want in that context,” Cuomo continued. “You tell me when that has ever happened with neo-Nazis. When they have ever been doing the right thing.”
After being called out about speaking kindly on a group that is just as bad as the neo-Nazis, Cuomo attempted to backtrack with a blatant lie, going so far as to say a person on his panel put the words in his mouth.
“I never said that. Stop resorting to the absurd,” he said.

To highlight some of the things Antifa has done, allow me to re-up what I wrote just the other day about Antifa after former VP and 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden called them “courageous Americans.”
To give you some examples, Antifa showed up to the home of Tucker Carlson where they attempted to gain access to his home. Carlson’s wife and children were forced to hide in the pantry as Antifa stood outside his home threatening Carlson’s safety.
Antifa recently attacked an elderly man for not obeying them in Portland, while police stood by and let it happen.
They have called for the assassination of Trump, and Steven Crowder went undercover and caused Antifa members to expose the fact that they were going to use deadly weapons against their opposition.
To be clear, they are labeled domestic terrorists by U.S. security agencies, and they live up to the classification.
Antifa is clearly the bad guy in any given situation. Cuomo is essentially shrugging off the many crimes and potentially deadly encounters they would have as “true to a cause” that he agrees with, at least on some level.
It should be noted that this isn’t the first time Cuomo, or even CNN painted Antifa as the good guys.
Before that, Cuomo argued that Antifa’s violence was better than the alt-right’s violence because Antifa’s violence fell to the left. Don Lemon attempted to call Antifa an “African-American organization,” which is a complete lie according to…CNN.
Given, I understand why Lemon would think this given the racist anti-white attitude Antifa carries around with them. They even put up signs warning that dating white people “will not be tolerated.”
