Cuomo Doubles Down on Dangerous Rhetoric, Stirring Hatred of GOP


President-Elect Biden’s calls for unity may be hollow, but CNN’s Chris Cuomo wouldn’t even have that much. In his opening diatribe for Thursday’s PrimeTime, Cuomo doubled down on his previous night’s hatred of the GOP where he appeared to threaten their lives. This time, he stirred up the hatred against them with false claims and suggested the GOP were the ones with it in them to kill innocent people on a mass scale.

The first words out of his mouth after introducing the show were another call for the creation of an enemies list against Republican lawmakers. “I really do want you to remember those in Congress who say there are irregularities in voting but they show no proof. And no, this is not about shaming Trump supporters. Don’t fall for that,” he said.

And these people in Congress are compromising you for their own political convenience,” he sneered after admitting, “This is about shaming those who want to keep this country from coming together…” And despite the fact that it was Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who was the one preventing compromise on a new COVID relief bill, Cuomo blamed the GOP:

In the process, they are delaying much-needed help for too many. People are sick and starving in this country, and they know it. Why are they surrendering the needs of the many for the needs of one?

“This has to be about us. It’s our only way through. And those who should be serving us, doing their job, but they’re only serving their own dilatory druthers,” he proclaimed (proud of his asinine alliteration) as he continued his lies about the GOP blocking relief for Americans.

 

 

According to him, GOP had set themselves up as opposing the very lives of the American people. “Every day they talk about Trump’s cause they abandon your own,” he spat. “We’re dying at a faster rate and they’re doing less.

It’s worth noting that during the handoff between Cuomo and CNN Tonight host Don Lemon, the latter touted how Cuomo had pointed out America’s advancements in keeping COVID patients alive.

Keeping with his narrative of blaming Republicans for problems they didn’t cause, Cuomo lashed out at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for Pelosi’s refusal to compromise:

They promised stimulus post-election. Remember that? Where is it? 709,000 more Americans just filed for unemployment, first time. More people are on food lines than at any time since the Great Depression. What happened to America first?

Mr. McConnell, leader of the Senate, he won’t answer if Biden should get classified briefings even though he’s entitled to them as the President-Elect. And no movement for stimulus by him.

After complaining about Republicans not calling Biden “president-elect,” Cuomo bizarrely told viewers the GOP “want[s] you to think votes for Trump were fraudulent.” CNN might think that but definitely not Republicans.

Then, quoting Voltaire, he disturbingly warned that Republicans had it in them to kill Americans on a mass scale. “Once people believe in absurdities, they are capable of atrocities,” he demonized.

This is not you build national unity. This is CNN.

Chris Cuomo’s dangerous rhetoric stoking hatred and threatening Republicans was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Casper and Panera Bread. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the dangerous discourse they’re funding.

CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime
November 12, 2020
9:00:12 p.m. Eastern

CHRUS CUOMO: I really do want you to remember those in Congress who say there are irregularities in voting but they show no proof. And no, this is not about shaming Trump supporters. Don’t fall for that. This is about shaming those who want to keep this country from coming together, left, right, and reasonable. And these people in Congress are compromising you for their own political convenience.

In the process they are delaying much-needed help for too many. People are sick and starving in this country, and they know it. Why are they surrendering the needs of the many for the needs of one?

Sources tell CNN they expect Trump to tease a 2024 run when he does finally acknowledge the results. Those sources expect Trump to dismiss the 2020 race as a fraud with no proof and hinting “I’ll be back.”

Sure, this may all work out well for him. But the rest of the Republicans are submarining your democracy in the process. This is not America first. It is trump first and only. You need more proof?

Just today the CISA, that’s the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, part of Homeland Security, Trump’s own administration obviously, says in a new statement in boldface, “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”

Why won’t the cronies in Congress own that? Why won’t they put you first instead of Trump? Together as ever as one. No matter who you voted for, whether you voted at all. This has to be about us. It’s our only way through. And those who should be serving us, doing their job, but they’re only serving their own dilatory druthers.

Every day they talk about Trump’s cause they abandon your own. They’re not even talking about, let alone acting on the worst pandemic numbers to date. There’s nothing else to do? There’s nothing to do differently? We’re dying at a faster rate and they’re doing less.

They promised stimulus post-election. Remember that? Where is it? 709,000 more Americans just filed for unemployment, first time. More people are on food lines than at any time since the Great Depression. What happened to America first?

Mr. McConnell, leader of the Senate, he won’t answer if Biden should get classified briefings even though he’s entitled to them as the President-Elect. And no movement for stimulus by him.

CUOMO: I can keep exposing the hypocrisy. But wouldn’t it just be better for them to do their damn jobs?

They want you to think votes for Trump were fraudulent and yet they also want you to think that all the votes for Congress on the same ballots are okay. All the wins for Republicans. All the state legislative wins. They’re good. But the Trump ones, “Oh, I don’t know.”

Once people believe in absurdities, they are capable of atrocities. Voltaire was right. And these Trumpets are wrong.
