We have known for a while that the establishment media is the propaganda arm for the #Resistance, which consists of liberals vowing to resist anything President Trump does, criticize anything he says, oppose any actions he takes and generally disagree with everything his administration proposes for no other reason that simply to "resist," but CNN has managed to take this so-called resistance to a whole new level.
Aside from the shockingly long list of their bungled reporting and in some cases outright "fake news," as well as the blatant liberal bias which can be seen in almost all of their "reporters" Twitter feeds where any insult leveled against President Trump by any other media member is retweeted with glee, we now see multiple CNN employees are going all-in for violent Antifa groups, to the point where one CNN pundit, Jeffrey Toobin is now facing backlash for racists comments that also fall under the "fake news" header.

CNN BECOMES ANTIFA APOLOGISTS WHILE PUSHING ANOTHER FAKE NEWS CLAIM
Three separate CNN talking heads have now come out 1) Justifying Antifa violence, saying they are on the "side of right"; 2) Trying to excuse Antifa's violence by suggesting their "reasons" means there is a "distinction," and; 3) Directly lying about the demographic make-up of Antifa members by suggesting they are "perceived as an African-American organization."
First it was Don Lemon who said "No organization is perfect, there was some violence. No one condones the violence. But there were different reasons for Antifa and for these Neo-Nazis to be there. One, racist fascists, the other group fighting racist fascists. There’s a distinction there.”
Then Chris Cuomo stated "Now, how you fight matters too. There's no question about that. But drawing a moral equivalency between those espousing hate and those fighting it because they both resort to violence emboldens hate, legitimizes hateful belief and elevates what should be stamped out...The bigots are wrong to hit. Antifa,or whomever, anarchists or malcontent or misguided, they are also wrong to hit. But fighting hate is right. And in a clash between hate and those who oppose it, those who oppose it are on the side of right.”
Then CNN's senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin stated " “Let’s be clear also about what is going on here. The theme here is, ‘I’m Donald Trump and I’ll protect you from the scary, black people.’ …“Antifa is widely perceived as an African-American organization, and this is just part of the same story of Lebron James and Don Lemon and Maxine Waters and the NFL players and the UCLA basketball players. This is about black versus white. This is about Donald Trump’s appeal to racism and it just happens all the time. We never say it — we don’t say it enough for what it is, but that’s what is going on here.”
Three different shows, three CNN pundits pushing Antifa propaganda.
Carlson Tucker shows clips of both Lemon and Toobin's statements, before going on to debate a member of Antifa, below:
Now, as to Toobin's claim that "Antifa is widely perceived as an African-American organization," that is legitimately fake news, an outright lie, and the proof is in the multitudes of video evidence of Antifa groups attacking others, including African Americans, and the mug shots from all over the country from Antifa members having been arrested for rioting, where the vast majority are most definitely not African American, but are white.

Language Warning on the video below as an Antifa thug drops F-bombs all over the place while harassing a black man on one of the examples shown in the montage of Antifa attacking African Americans.
This goes straight to the core of the issue, Antifa apologists over at CNN, including Toobin, Lemon, and Cuomo, claims, just as Antifa groups do, that they are fighting against "fascists," and even go as far as claiming as the Antifa member in the Carlson video up above does, that they are fighting people calling for genocide, but as shown by how they will attack anyone that disagrees with them, they are using fascist tactics, while physically attacking people for their free speech.
No matter how abhorrent any specific speech is, it is still a constitutionally guaranteed right, and Antifa's claim that violence is justified against "speech," words, if they deem those words to be "fascist-like," is criminal. The type of assault perpetrated by Antifa is a felony.
Examples of the type of assault considered a felony include: striking or threatening to strike a person with a weapon or dangerous object; assault or battery resulting in serious physical injury, including permanent disfigurement; assault (threat of violence) while concealing one’s identity.
Toobin's comments were particularly egregious as he attempts to associate Antifa, and the violence that occurs at every event they "counter-protest," which usually turns into riots, with black Americans. Turning Point USA's communications director Candace Owens, who is an African American, calls them out for racism.
Via Owens on August 29: " HOLY SH*T. @CNN is now LYING on Black Americans accusing US of committing the violent atrocities that ANTIFA commits across the nation. ANTIFA is a notoriously ALL-WHITE gang, and blaming BLACKS is absolutely DISGRACEFUL @JeffreyToobin.
She continues on to state "This is literally @CNN being HORRIBLY RACIST. Blaming black Americans for crimes that an ALL-WHITE gang commits—why? Because white Democrats are incapable of violence, and only black democrats are? UNBELIEVABLY RACIST @JeffreyToobin. ANTIFA has nothing to do with the blacks."
Not only is Toobin attempting to connect Antifa to black Americans, but all three of the pundits named above are also attempting to legitimize and normalize Antifa terror.
While the deep-seated hatred for anything "Trump-related" has overwhelming swept through the establishment media, with CNN being the worst hit with their constant fake news scandals, but they have jumped to a whole new level by promoting violence with their justifications, excuses, and outright lies about Antifa terrorism across the nation.
This goes way beyond the establishment media's Trump Derangement Syndrome, now dubbed by experts as "Trump Anxiety Disorder," and right into incitement of more Antifa violence and anarchy by a liberal news agency, CNN.
CNN has totally gone off the rails, which brings up the obvious question of what the heck is going on over there?
