Chris Cuomo Gets Lesson on US Constitution After Asking Where It Says Protesters Have To Be ‘Peaceful’

Chris Cuomo must have skipped class the day his professor covered the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, but CNN hired him anyway.

Cuomo, the host of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” suggested protesters don’t have to be “peaceful” on his show Tuesday night.

“Now too many see the protests as the problem. No, the problem is what forced your fellow citizens to take to the streets: persistent, poisonous inequities and injustice,” he said.

“And please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Because I can show you that outraged citizens are what made the country what she is and led to any major milestone. To be honest, this is not a tranquil time.”

For most Americans, the First Amendment is clear when it comes to protesting.

Here’s what it says, Mr. Cuomo:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. “

Sure, it can be conceded that protests don’t “have to be polite,” but this man holds degrees from Yale University and Fordham University and doesn’t know what the constitution says about protesting peacefully?

What’s more alarming is that he is the host of a prime-time show and is paid to give his political commentary to the masses. He should know the law, and it’s dangerous for him not to.

Cuomo has been receiving backlash, all justified, for not knowing the basic foundation of our rights as United States citizens.

Donald Trump, Jr. could not hold his feelings back.

Cuomo’s uneducated opinion came the same day St. Louis retired police Captain David Dorn was killed by what Trump Jr. described as “cold blood by looters” during violent unrest.

Cuomo’s obvious lack of knowledge and spouting off seemingly in support of violence throws fuel on an already out-of-control inferno.

Protests, demonstrations and riots have erupted all over the nation after George Floyd, a black man, died after a former Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes on May 25.

There have been many peaceful protests, but violent mayhem across America has dominated the media as businesses have been looted, cities have been set ablaze and innocent people have been killed.

Many citizens are exercising their rights guaranteed to them in the First Amendment and expressing their outrage in a lawful way.

Then there are those who are breaking the laws established by our Founding Fathers and putting the lives of countless others in jeopardy.

Clearly Cuomo cannot distinguish between the two.

  2. Their are 3 diabolically disordered levels inside the COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT PARTY. The FIRST level are the DOLT RIDDEN DUMBOCRAT DRAGOONS who like wild dogs prey on their own kind as represented by the walking dead who use insanity and fouled ‘feeeeeeeeeeelings’ as means of protest. The SECOND level are the MYRMIDONIC MARXISTS who instigate on behalf of the DOLT RIDDEN DUMBOCRAT DRAGOONS. And the THIRD level are the PENTHOUSE BOLSHEVIKS who feed and fund the other two. All 3 are impervious to reason; lacking in functioning consciences; and totally invulnerable to regret.

  3. THE SO-CALLED PROTESTS ARE NOT EVEN NEAR TO BE PEACEFUL. VIOLENCE, DESTRUCTION, AND HATREDS ARE THE GOALS AND FACTS. 85 BLACK PEOPLE DEAD LAST WEEKEND, ALL MURDERED BY OTHER BLACKS. HOWEVER, NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE OF ASK ABOUT THE VICTIMS NAMES AND PICTURES. IF THIS WOULD HAPPEN IN ANOTHER COUNTRY, THE MILITARY WOULD BE ON THE STREETS FIGHTING A CIVIL WAR! Because what we are seeing now is just that. A civil war. An attempted Coup D’etate!
