New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo’s brother is carrying on the family stupidocrisy. Chris Cuomo, host of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, said April 16 that gun law and police reform will only happen when “white people’s kids start getting killed.”
Cuomo said, “Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they’ll change. Your kids start getting killed, white people’s kids start getting killed.”
In today’s environment, a statement like that is both irresponsible and reprehensible. It implies that social change will not happen unless white kids die. Nobody wants their child to die, no matter the color of their skin. But Cuomo is suggesting to the crazies that white kids need to die for social justice.
This is the same Chris Cuomo who CNN positioned as a selfless husband and father quarantining in his basement with COVID 19, but was actually found on last year’s Easter Sunday breaking his own brother’s state-ordered quarantine and getting into a mask-less confrontation with a cyclist. This is the same Chris Cuomo who, in wrapping up CNN’s coverage of the GOP convention, defended CNN’s disproportionate fact-checking of Republicans. Cuomo contended that CNN didn’t fact-check the Democratic Convention so much because Democrats don’t lie. Cuomo said that Republicans lie, especially Donald Trump, so CNN had to fact check the GOP convention so people will know who to believe.
Cuomo’s interested in facts? Here’s some:
Statista Research puts 2020 total fatal shootings by police at 1,021 – 457 were White, 241 Black, 169 Hispanic, and 154 either “other” or unknown. Fox News reports that so far in 2021, there have been 52 (3 unarmed) Blacks and 109 (5 unarmed) Whites killed by police. Police statistics indicate that in Chicago alone, in 2020, there were 4,033 shooting victims, 769 homicides, and 79 police officers shot. This, in a state and city with some of the strictest gun laws in America.
Statistically, gun control doesn’t work, and police officers rarely exercise lethal force in comparison to the amount of crime, especially in big cities which are usually run by Democrats—the party that gave America Jim Crow laws and wants to blame everybody else for the problem they institutionalized for well over a century.
Psalm 127:4-5 says, “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them.”
It is disgraceful that Cuomo would greenlight or even suggest harming children for any cause, let alone social or political. Chris Cuomo should be held accountable. CNN should remove him from their channel. Fact is, nobody’s kids should be killed. To even say something like that is a stupid thing to say, and in Cuomo’s case, hypocritical. It’s stupid because it could trigger some psychos into actually doing it. It’s hypocritical because I’m sure Cuomo would not want his own kids, God forbid, to be the first in setting the example.
Say it with me… Stupidocrisy.
