Chris Cuomo of CNN is known for saying things that even make his fake news colleagues raise their eyebrows. 

Cuomo and his propaganda partner Don Lemon are on an endless mission to gaslight, lie, inflame hate and mislead America.

Their primary tools are using strong emotional tactics, twisting situations and creating a narrative in which only progressives are decent people and everyone who disagrees isn’t just wrong but is actually dangerous, racist and evil. 

The latest thing Cuomo said will shock many of you, even those who are used to the lies and hate on CNN.

Cuomo’s Race-Baiting Propaganda

 

Cuomo’s latest statement was on one of his favorite subjects: how privileged and ignorant White people are. He even likes to say it of himself, engaging in a self-guilt confession about his privilege on an ongoing basis, as if America wants to hear about his personal issues on cable news. Save it for your therapist, Chris. 

Cuomo actually said during his show Cuomo Primetime that gun control and stronger punishments for cops who kill people won’t happen until “white people’s kids start getting killed.”

Cuomo went on to talk about how the reason that news often looks into the past of police shooting victims is to give cover to police. 

“Why do that? Because you wanna make the problem them. Takes the onus off the idea that you’re wrong about policing needing to change. Forget that police are trained to deal with non-compliance with force that is not lethal. Hey, comply or die,” Cuomo said.

Actually, they do that because real news tries to investigate the facts behind what happened. And it turns out that many times – not always – the facts behind police shootings are not as black and white as CNN would like you to believe. 

It also turns out that police don’t just shoot Black people, and that the entire narrative about them singling out Black people to shoot is statistically untrue and race-baiting propaganda. 

More White people are killed by police than Black people, and this is despite the fact that Black Americans have a much higher proportional violent crime rate than White Americans despite making up only 13% of the population. 

None of this makes police shootings or harassment of unarmed Black people remotely acceptable, of course, but it does call into question Cuomo’s lies that White people are somehow immune from facing police violence. 

In fact, it shows that he’s straight up lying. 

But facts are not something that Cuomo is interested in here, obviously.

What are the Facts?

The facts are that every case is different. Discussion of police reform is certainly valid, and if Black Americans do believe they are being over-policed for non-violent crimes then that is also a discussion that can and should take place. 

However, to lie and twist the situation in order to pit Black against White is shameful, and as usual progressives like Cuomo are seizing on the tragedy and horror of recent unarmed police shootings to push an agenda that’s misleading and dangerous. 

The shooting of Daunte Wright in Minnesota was egregious and needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, as does the recent shooting of 13-year-old Adam Toledo in Chicago and insane police harassment of U.S. Army Lieutenant Caron Nazario at a traffic stop

Racism may well be a factor in some police harassment. But to frame the entire issue of police violence as a race issue is not only dishonest: it’s incredibly dangerous. 

With BLM violence on the rise and the country on the edge of a meltdown into full racial conflict the last thing we need is liars like Cuomo making things even worse with their distortions and race-baiting.
