CNN has been pretending to hold the moral high ground ever since the Aug. 12 violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
While acting as if all conservatives are unhinged racists and attacking President Donald Trump for pointing out that there are many sides to violence, the left-leaning network has been riding a sanctimonious high horse for weeks — but a new video may have its executives in panic mode.
One of CNN’s own hosts was just spotted at a rally backed by the radical “antifa” group… and instead of being there to report, it looks like he showed up to stir up the mob.
W. Kamau Bell is the host of CNN’s “United Shades of America,” and, according to PJ Media, he was caught on video yelling into a bullhorn about Nazis and “black people” at a rally with a very shady history.
The liberal journalist took the stage at the “No Hate In The Bay” protest last weekend, and seized the opportunity to address the crowd.
Bell quickly became a far-left cliche and split people into racial groups, declaring that “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!”
Setting aside the fact that treating people differently based on their sexual orientation or color is the antithesis of equality, there’s also the inconvenient fact that the “No Hate” rally that Bell attended has been doing quite a bit of hating, after all.
“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 canceled out of safety concerns. The leaders of both groups have denounced neo-Nazis and white supremacists,” explained PJ Media.
“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,” continued the report.
The best word to describe a CNN host participating in such a rally might be “problematic.”
Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson summarized the issue, and pointed out that Bell’s involvement added fuel to an already volatile fire.
“[Bell] calls himself a political provocateur but that doesn’t quite capture it,” stated Carlson. “In fact, he is a supporter of Antifa.”
“He’s happy to stand up on stage and call his opponents Nazis. That’s not a label you use on people you want to debate. It’s a label you use to incite rage,” Carlson continued.
The conservative host then pointed out that other journalists wouldn’t be able to get away with being attached to a radical group if the roles were reversed.
He asked viewers to imagine if a right-leaning host had been on stage for a militant group that openly stated it was fighting for white, Christian gun owners.
“How would that go over?” Carlson asked. “This show would be canceled quickly and it would deserve to be canceled.”
The truth is that Bell’s statements were divisive, racially slanted, and incited more anger.
CNN needs to explain why one of its prominent employees was involved with a side that has shown an eagerness to use violence and promote hate.
Until CNN’s executives disavow Bell and others like him, they are part of the “many sides” problem that President Trump famously called out.
