    CNN’s Chris Cuomo Unaware The First Amendment Protects Only Peaceful Protest

    Cuomo: “Show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful.”
    Listen to this article

    Throughout the protests and riots, it has been amazing to watch apologists on CNN defend what is happening. Chris Cuomo is now wondering aloud why protests should be peaceful.

    Has he looked out a window lately?

    Think back to the Tea Party protests of 2010. No one was killed, and nothing was destroyed. People left spaces cleaner than they found them. And people on CNN called them dangerous, racist and worse.

    Now you’ve got people on CNN defending the destruction of American cities. To be fair, Cuomo does make a distinction between the protesters and the rioters, but his message is clear. So what if the protests aren’t peaceful?

    Joseph A. Wulfsohn reports at FOX News:

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo blasted for suggesting protesters don’t have to be ‘peaceful’

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo raised eyebrows on Tuesday night when he suggested that the George Floyd protesters don’t have to be “polite and peaceful.”

    Cuomo blasted those who believe the national “problem” is the riots that have taken place following the death of George Floyd and not the police brutality that prompted the nationwide protests.

    “Now too many see the protests as the problem. No, the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets: persistent, poisonous inequities and injustice,” Cuomo told his viewers. “And please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Because I can show you that outraged citizens are what made the country what she is and led to any major milestone. To be honest, this is not a tranquil time.”

    He later added, “Police are the ones required to be peaceful, to deescalate, to remain calm.”

    It’s important to note that Chris Cuomo has repeatedly defended Antifa. In this now famous tweet, he compared them to the American soldiers who stormed the beach at Normandy.

    “Show me where it says in the constitution…”

    Can we play along with abortion, medical care and a living wage?

    Sure, if you’ll show me where the Second Amendment says “no automatic weapons.”

    Gee, isn’t this the “fire in a crowded theatre” exception liberals love to quote when they want to ban “hate” speech (and automatic weapons)?
