CNN: 'Other Networks' Are Pushing America Toward 'Civil War'

They 'relish the idea of the destruction of society,' claims Anderson Cooper

CNN's Anderson Cooper claims 'other networks' are 'promoting' 'civil war'

CNN's Anderson Cooper has told the far-left outlet's dwindling viewers that "other networks" are pushing America toward a second "civil war" because they "relish the idea of the destruction of society."

Cooper, presumably referring to Fox News Channel and Newsmax, claims the "networks" are actively "promoting" the idea to their audiences.

"There’s a lot of people, who throw around the term civil war, and some on podcasts seem to kind of relish the idea of the destruction of society,” said Cooper.

"The very people who are, kind, of promoting that here, on podcasts, right now — and other networks — who probably have not done service, and have not seen it for themselves."

Cooper made the claims during Thursday night’s two-and-a-half-hour special, “January 6: One Year Later.”

He discussed the Capitol Hill riot with a panel of Democrat elected officials, especially Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) and Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ).

"You two … have seen what civil wars look like up close,” Cooper said to Rep. Crow, a former Army Ranger who served three terms in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Rep. Gallego, who served as an infantryman with the U.S. Marines in Iraq.

"You both have seen up close, through the window of a Humvee, and out on the streets, what happens when a society collapses.”

The host — whom CNN has increasingly tried to promote as its central anchor since the departure of its top-rated anchor, Chris Cuomo, last year — did not specify which television networks or podcasts “relish” or are “promoting” the taking up of arms to overthrow the U.S. government.

A scan of the transcripts of Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News Network turns up no incitements to violently seize power in the U.S. Capitol while showing many condemnations of politically motivated violence.

Yet Cooper forecast that these unnamed malefactors “will be swept up in [the forthcoming civil war] and destroyed, as well as everybody else.

"I mean, that is not anything anybody should even talk about, or wish, ever think about happening.”

“Absolutely not,” replied Rep. Gallego.

None of the elected officials pushed back at the misinformation that broadcast television networks are praising terroristic violence.

Despite the lack of specificity, Cooper spent much of this week warning CNN's viewers of an impending civil war.

On Tuesday, he interviewed Barbara F. Walter of the University of California at San Diego and author of the forthcoming book “How Civil Wars Start: And How To Stop Them.”

“In the civil wars you looked at, how do civil wars get started? And how close do you think is the United States?” he asked.

“Over the last five years, I’ve been watching what’s happening here in my own country, and one of the things that I’ve seen is that these same factors are emerging here in the United States — and they’re emerging at a surprisingly fast rate,” she replied.

“What factors are you talking about? What specifically do you look at?” Cooper asked.

“What are the parallels?

“So, we don’t look at individual cases,” Walter replied, saying that her research revolved entirely around a “predictive model” generated by a computer.

She eventually named a loss of “democracy” and the instability that takes place when societies “broke down along racial, ethnic and religious lines; formed political parties along those lines; and then tried to capture power, to exclude everyone else.”

Neither addressed the role of theories like Critical Race Theory in balkanizing the United States along those very lines.

Unsurprising, Cooper failed to mention any of the far-left rioting that tore American communities apart throughout 2020.

Nor did he mention CNN's role in fanning the flames of the violence.
