CNN’s Chris Cuomo labeled the “extreme right” as “the number one domestic terror threat in the U.S.” Thursday while co-hosting “New Day.”
“If you take anarchists at their worst, do you have malefactor? Do you have criminals in their ranks? Do you have people who do violent things? Yes, yes, yes, yes. That is not a moral equivalency to the KKK,” Cuomo said. “It’s certainly not an equivalent to what we see on the right. Just look at the stats. The number one domestic terror threat in the U.S. is the extreme right. There is not even a close second.”
“That’s all they’re about is hate. Two out of three people on this panel they don’t want to exist!”
Cuomo was speaking with CNN commentator Bob Ferguson, whom he accused of trying to equate groups like Antifa with the KKK. Ferguson defended his position and said people must realize violence and chaos doesn’t stop with white supremacy groups.
“What I’m saying is there are individuals in this country, human beings in the country that do want a race war, and do want to cause violence and pain and even death to other people,” Ferguson said.
Cuomo interrupted Ferguson, “Yes! they’re called the KKK. They’re called white supremacists and neo-Nazis.”
