Chris Cuomo Makes The Sickest Argument, Yet: 'White Kids Need To Start Getting Killed'
I'm not sure I'd venture to claim anyone in the Cuomo family was of sound mind, but this was pretty far- even for Chris Cuomo. The CNN activist claimed that the only way to reform the police is if more white kids start getting killed. His point, completely moot in the face of the many changed police departments have made nationwide.
Cuomo's deranged rant began, "You hear people. What are you going to do when you see these shootings? You know what you’re going to do. “That George Floyd, did you hear about him? That Daunte Wright, did you hear about him? That 13-year-old Adam, you know he was a gangbanger.”
Why do that? Because you want to make the problem them. It takes the onus off the idea that you're wrong about policing not needing to change. Forget that police are trained to deal with non-compliance with force that is not lethal. “Hey, comply or die, eh.”
And you know what the answer is. You really do. You don't like it, I don't like it, it scares me. Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they'll change. Your kids start getting killed, white people's kids start getting killed.
As if he couldn't get more awkward, Cuomo tossed in a little slang. You know... to keep it fresh.
"Smoking that doobie that's actually legal probably in your state now, but they don’t know what it was and the kid runs and then pop, pop, pop, pop! The cop was justified. “Why did you run?” Oh, he had a baseball game tonight. Oh, white kid, big family, that house over there? Those start piling up. “What is going on with these police?” [Frantic noises] “Maybe we shouldn't even have police.”"
"That kind of mania, that kind of madness, that will be you. That will be the majority, because it's your people," Cuomo declared.
After declaring that more white kids needed to die, the anchor moved to another insane argument. Cuomo claimed that the only way to ban guns is if black people owned them. He urged black viewers to buy more assault weapons and form militias.
I hate to break it to him, owning guns is not a 'black vs white' thing. It's an American right and many law-abiding black voters are already gun owners.
"See, now black people start getting all guns, forming militias, protect themselves. Can't trust the deep state. You'll see a wave of change, in access and accountability. We saw it in the '60s. That's when it changes, because that's when it's you.
My job is to show you and them, because there but for the grace. And the grace is forgiveness that none of us deserve for the blessings that we're wasting in this country."
So, yeah... that happened.
How this guy still has a job is beyond me.
