CNN Host Sparks Mass Outrage, Sanitizes Violence Committed by Antifa: ‘Yes, People Get Hurt’

CNN’s W. Kamau Bell made controversial remarks on CNN’s “United Shades Of America,” according to The Daily Wire.

“In 2020, many white Americans dealt with complicated feelings about the police for the first time,” Bell stated.

“The right-wing saw that, and they [sic] did what they do: They pulled a bait-and-switch, and returned to an old boogeyman: Antifa.”

“Images of people clad in black fighting in the streets was an easy idea to sell to people who say things like, ‘Blue Lives Matter.”

“Ain’t nobody blue.”

“‘Antifa’ is short for anti-fascist,” Bell said.

“If you’re unsure how you feel about that, picture a table: On one side of the table is Hitler and Mussolini, and on the other side is the popular [children’s] performer Raffi.”

“Which side of the table you sitting on?”

“I’m with Raffi.”

“Look, this fighting for democracy and against fascism thing has always been a messy business. And, yes, people get hurt, property gets damaged, and things get confusing.”

From The Daily Wire:

On CNN’s “United Shades of America,” host W. Kamau Bell compared the violent left-wing extremist group Antifa to a beloved children’s music star, sanitized their violence, and admitted that innocent “people get hurt” — but implied it’s worth it.

The show ended by claiming that white supremacists killed former Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X.

Bell devoted a segment of his most recent show to the radical leftist group Antifa, whose violent nature has been a matter of record for years.

To short-circuit that racial reckoning, Bell claimed, conservatives preyed on their audience’s ignorance and support for traditional occupations like the police.

Bell then sanitized the aims and intentions of the frequently riotous, international movement.

Bell then met with two members of Portland’s Antifa movement, saying snarkily, “Oh, Tucker’s gonna be so mad.”

In 2017, Fox News host Tucker Carlson played footage of Bell egging on an Antifa crowd and accused him of “peddling hate” and “stoking violent extremism as a side gig.”

Perhaps referring to Joe Biden, Bell told the two Antifa members that “a lot of people on the Left have done a lot of work to say, ‘Antifa is not a group; it’s an ideology’ — and then, you guys actually are a group.”

After presenting the two disguised members of the group — one male, one female — as charming and sensitive, Bell conceded that Antifa has a long history of unleashing violence and injury in its wake.

Portland protesters like the two featured on Bell’s show have caused $2.3 million in damage to the city’s buildings alone, according to Newsweek.

But, Bell said, Martin Luther King Jr. died violently.

In addition to hand-to-hand combat, Bell’s guests said that Antifa doxxes people saying what they consider to be “violent, racist, disgusting things” while “hoping they get fired, or have to find a new job,” or get shunned by their in-laws.
