(Warning: This weblog accommodates quotes from CNN host Chris Cuomo the place he used specific language.)

If CNN PrimeTime host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo was recognized for something, it was his want to make use of bodily violence in opposition to his opponents at practically each flip. Whether or not it was threatening to throw a Trump supporter down a flight of stairs, fantasizing about choking and punching his critics, to brazenly threatening the lives of Republican lawmakers, violence was a part of who he was. However on Monday, Fredo had the audacity to take advantage of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to all of the sudden preach peace and love.

Hope with me that right now Dr. King’s instance conjures up the numerous striving for higher and enlightens the poisonous few decided to be their worst,” he proclaimed. “We couldn’t have a greater reminder which you can’t kill an concept with violence. Solely a greater concept can prevail. Equality and justice as Dr. King taught us.”

Including: “They’re the very best concepts. Darkness can solely be eliminated by the sunshine of reality. And love is the final word type of reality. But in addition that racial progress can enrage some within the majority and that violence can be utilized as a refuge for these coming from a spot of animus and ignorance. And that democracy, even in America, is a fragile, fragile factor.

What an opportunist hypocrite Fredo was. And he made all these pompous statements then later bashed Republicans for sharing King quotes. In fact, he didn’t be aware MLK was a Republican.

 

 

But, it was simply two years in the past that Cuomo had a roid rage moment after Trump supporters referred to as him “Fredo” and he threatened to via them down a flight of stairs in an expletive-lashed tirade. “No, punk-ass bitches from the suitable name me Fredo. My identify is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN,” he screamed on the group. “I’ll fucking wreck your shit. I’ll fucking throw you down these stairs like a fucking punk.”

Simply three months in the past, he talked about desirous to deal with his critics at Fox News with a “bare choke” and “a punch to the sternum.”

And except for threatening Republican lawmakers that they have been “going to lose far more than this election,” he additionally insisted that protests didn’t have to be peaceful. “And please, present me the place it says that protesters are purported to be well mannered and peaceable,” he demanded final summer season.

Dr. King’s hallmark was nonviolent protests and civil disobedience. Two issues Cuomo’s historical past, actions, and demeanor have been removed from.

On high of spewing that nonsense, Fredo additionally lashed out on the Nationwide Guard troops now stationed in Washington D.C. to guard the inauguration, suggesting their backgrounds wanted to be totally searched to verify they have been loyal.

Declaring “we will now not boast a peaceable switch of energy,” Cuomo argued “we should be suspicious” of the Nationwide Guard “to make sure that none will activate their nation and pose an insider risk. We used to have to do this in Iraq, by the way in which.”

He went on to opine about how President-elect Biden’s “battle for the soul of the nation” was fairly literal. “Candidate Biden warned us we have been in for a battle of the soul of our nation. Appeared dramatic on the time. Now appears extra prophetic,” he bloviated. “How do you restore a soul? How do you unify those that see profit and energy in division? That alone could be a frightening, daunting activity. However that’s simply one of many issues on Biden’s plate.”

Exploiting a civil rights hero and bashing the troops. That is CNN.

CHRIS CUOMO:  This week shall be remembered for a very long time. The query is, how? Hope with me that right now Dr. King’s instance conjures up the numerous striving for higher and enlightens the poisonous few decided to be their worst. We couldn’t have a greater reminder which you can’t kill an concept with violence. Solely a greater concept can prevail. Equality and justice as Dr. King taught us. They’re the very best concepts. Darkness can solely be eliminated by the sunshine of reality. And love is the final word type of reality.

But in addition that racial progress can enrage some within the majority and that violence can be utilized as a refuge for these coming from a spot of animus and ignorance. And that democracy, even in America, is a fragile, fragile factor.

That final actuality, has the Capitol and this nation in a state of excessive anxiousness. The Inaugural Committee lighting the sector of flags on a abandoned nationwide mall tonight. Illuminating 56 pillars of sunshine representing each state and territory. Some 200,000 U.S. flags standing tall, representing Individuals unable to attend the Biden inauguration because of the pandemic, and now because of the illness of division.

25,000 Nationwide Guard members should shield our democracy from ourselves. We will now not boast a peaceable switch of energy. There isn’t any peace. We should be suspicious of even the peacekeepers. All are being vetted by the FBI forward of Wednesday to make sure that none will activate their nation and pose an insider risk. We used to have to do this in Iraq, by the way in which.

That is the place we’re 4 years of Trump. The one place his demagoguery may take us chaos capped off by a Capitol coup. Candidate Biden warned us we have been in for a battle of the soul of our nation. Appeared dramatic on the time. Now appears extra prophetic.

How do you restore a soul? How do you unify those that see profit and energy in division? That alone could be a frightening, daunting activity. However that’s simply one of many issues on Biden’s plate. Actually, a sea of tsunamis because of the worst president in my lifetime; the person who made it cool to be merciless in too many locations on this nation.
