CNN Host W. Kamau Bell, who hosts a program called “United Shades of America” took a horn at an Antifa rally stating “when the Nazis leave, as they have left…you have to stand up for the brown people, the black people, the LGBT people, the immigrants–everybody everyday!” causing the mob to roar in excitement.
CNN is dodging questions about Bell’s involvement.
But I seized the mic and said I was against white supremacy. (No news to anyone.) & The mic began to cut out. They handed me a bullhorn…
The “No Hate” rally was organized in opposition to two conservative groups (“No Marxism in America” and “Patriot Prayer”) that were going to hold rallies that weekend but cancelled out of safety concerns.
The leaders of both groups have denounced neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
Violent Antifa protesters chased, harassed, spat on, and viciously assaulted the few conservatives who were in attendance at the rally on Sunday. They attacked journalists as well.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson took CNN to task on his show Thursday night, pointing out that Bell offered encouragement to the black-clad Antifa mob that attacked innocent people for no other reason than that they “might have voted for Donald Trump.”
He “calls himself a political provocateur but that doesn’t quite capture it,” Carlson said. “In fact, he is a supporter of Antifa.”
Tucker recounted how the Antifa mob attacked “Patriot Prayer” founder Joey Gibson, a political moderate: “They knocked him off his feet, pepper-sprayed him, smashed him in the head with a pole,” he said.
“Last night we talked to man called Keith Campbell. He’s not a Nazi, either. He just happened to be standing at the event with a camera. Antifa thugs knocked him to the ground and began pummeling him. They might have killed him if a conscientious liberal hadn’t shielded Campbell with his body.”
Carlson argued that the reason the two men were attacked was because “they believe in American ideas like free speech and free association.” He said antifa doesn’t believe in those things and that’s why they attacked. “They hate this country. They want to tear it down. They are totalitarian in their beliefs and in their aims,” Carlson declared.
