CNN Hosts: BLM Riots More Justified Than Capitol Hill Riots
Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo excuse violent far-left rioting
The two far-left hosts suggested that livelihoods being destroyed by the hands of Antifa and BLM were noble because of a just cause.
Chris Cuomo said that attempting to overturn an election was “different than being pissed off about being shot by the cops.”
“They just haven’t done it at the Capitol," Cuomo said.
"They’ve been doing it all over the country for seven months,” Cuccinelli said of the riots.
“That matters. That matters," Cuomo asserted.
"Overturning the election is different than being pissed off about being shot by cops,” he added, per Newsbusters.
The two CNN hosts commiserated on how the two riots do not compare.
“That was a very important interview. And listen, I’m glad you mentioned about being shot by cops because you cannot compare."
"And I’m sick of people comparing."
"You can’t compare what happened this summer to what happened at the Capitol," Lemon said.
"It’s two different things,” asserted Lemon.
“One is built on people, on racial justice, on criminal justice, right, on reform, on police not beating up – or police treating people of color differently than they do whites."
"Okay? That is not a lie. Those are facts. Go look at them," he added.
"What happened at the Capitol was built on a lie perpetrated by the president and the people who support him,” he continued.
“So, just on that one merit, if you want to call it, it’s not comparable."
"That things are not comparable. So they should not be doing it. And stop this whataboutism.”
Cuomo even claimed that whenever conservatives bring up the BLM riots, they mean to say they "don't care" about the Capitol Hill riots.
“The truth is, as soon as somebody says to you, Don, they are aware of what happened last week – ‘but this summer.'"
The rally ended but a ton of people are marching on their own toward the White House. Yesterday in reverse, but turnout looks bigger.— Alejandro Alvarez (@aletweetsnews) May 30, 2020

"As soon as the words come out of their mouth, they do not care about what happened last week,” Cuomo said.
“They know everything that you’re saying, and I’m saying. They get that it’s not apples to apples,” he added.
“What it is, is a reflection of the truth, of what is happening in this country."
"Which is there are people who don’t care, who don’t like what was done, who don’t believe that black people are justified, and it’s why last week happened. And we can get angry too.”
