Cuomo Brothers Chart Course for America's Future
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 19 August 2018 | John Semmens

Chris Cuomo: “Antifa Violence” Justified

CNN’s Chris Cuomo defended Antifa’s assaults on political opponents, calling it “a justifiable tactic to combat bigotry. The attempt to equate this with Nazi Brownshirts beating up Jews and political opponents is unfair. The Nazis were bigots. Their victims were innocent. Antifa’s victims are the right wing bigots who support the ‘bigot-in-chief’ who occupies the White House. Cracking their skulls is a socially beneficial use of violence for a good cause.”

In related news, CNN filed a motion to unseal the names and addresses of the jurors in the Manafort trial. The motion asserted that “the public has a right to know who these people are and the jurors need to know that they will be held accountable for their decision. If the appropriate verdict isn’t rendered at the trial a righteously offended public has to have a reasonable avenue for expressing their outrage. The fact that the jurors will be at home over the weekend before returning on Monday for further deliberations makes it all the more urgent that the opportunity for interface between jurors and citizens interested in the ultimate verdict be afforded in a timely fashion.”

Andrew Cuomo: “America Was Never that Great”

In what many suspect is an opening salvo in a potential 2020 run for president, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) sought to establish a sharp contrast between himself and President Trump by telling an audience of Democratic partisans that “America was never that great.” This strong rebuttal to Trump’s pledge to “make America great again” elicited a mixed reaction. Some applauded his honesty. Others chided it.

Cuomo defended his contention by citing slavery, discrimination, and sexism. “America won’t be great until everyone is equal,” Cuomo insisted. “The descendants of those who benefited from slavery, discrimination, and sexism must first experience the sting of being on the receiving end of those damaging policies and attitudes. Those who are white need to be forced to toil for the benefit of minorities. Those who are white must be sent to the back of the bus. Those who are male must endure the same pain that women have endured since the beginning of time. Then America will be on the true path of greatness.”

Cuomo spokeswoman Dani Lever endeavored to clarify his remarks by saying that “an acknowledgment of mistakes must precede improvement. While Trump and his apologists assert that equality of opportunity is what makes America great this is little comfort to those unable or unwilling to make the effort to improve their lot in life. Not everyone is born with the talent or ambition to achieve the American dream on his or her own. The Governor believes it is the duty of government to level out this imbalance if we are to ensure that everyone can enjoy the good life regardless of whether they can ‘earn it’ for themselves. That has been the long-standing difference between Democrats and Republicans.”

Sort of like Ted Kennedy (rest in Hell, butthole) charting a car trip, or John Kennedy Jr. filing a flight plan.

When you’re talkin’ Cuomos, you ain’t talkin’ mensa.

Thank you for posting this here - although this is satire, it is close enough to these people’s intentions …

Love it! Satire is a fun way to laugh at the hypocrisy of the left.

In this case it’s both funny and true.

Difficult to get a jury if they fear for their lives.

A justifiable tactic to attack (improperly perceived) bigotry. Okay. Since Joy Reid and Sarah Jeong have demonstrated actual bigotry, will America Never Great, Jr. give his seal of approval to similar treatment of these two actual bigots?

“I wish you stop posting this crap here.”

I on the other hand love it. Keep it up John!

Does somebody have to hit you upside the head for you to recognize good satire?

“I can get fake news in many other places. I come to FR for real news.”

Oh really! You haven’t noticed all the articles posted here from the Slimes, Newsweak, NBC, ABC, BBC, CNN, Vox, Politico... Are those you consider “real news”?

Not to mention all the editorials posted that are just people’s opinion not news. And satire is just another (very effective) form of opinion, plus it can be quite entertaining and a great weapon to use on your enemies.

And John’s satire is actually 99% real news with only 1% exaggeration to drive home the idiocy of what he’s satirizing. That’s what makes it so good and effective.

Loosen up a bit, you’ll enjoy life more.

The gutless Marxist Cuomo’s are responded to in this clip from FNC.

Amos and Andy might as well give it up. They are not the “future” of America. According to Nasty Pelosi, MS-13 is the “future face of America”. The old honky face is out.

I enjoy it. Just a suggestion, if you don't like it, why click on the thread?

You sound like a liberal.

I gave my feedback and explained the reasoning behind it. Once again, this unfunny crap takes valuable space on this important website.

You enjoy it, other people don’t. Deal with it.
