Funny how that headline keeps rearing its head when I post about anyone from CNN. Just the other day, I posted Alisyn Camerota is an Idiot, and now today, Chris Cuomo is an Idiot.
Maybe I should just say “CNN is full of idiots” and be done with it.
The other day, Cuomo tweeted out this:
Hate speech is excluded from the First Amendment, dummies!
Why don’t you read the First Amendment, dummies!
“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.”
See it?! It’s right there you rightwing dummies!!
See? Chris Cuomo is an idiot. What’s fun about Chris is he doesn’t seem to have any fear of beclowning himself and exposing his idiocy for all the world.
So, in that respect, he’s kind of a fun idiot!
Like the John Cleese of CNN.
Now, as a New York resident, this doesn’t come as a surprise to me.
Chris’ idiot brother Andrew seems to believe that the Second Amendment excludes all guns except those for hunters and sportsmen. This from his 2013 (pre-NY SAFE Law) State of the State screech:
“We must stop the madness, my friends. And in one word it is just enough. It has been enough. We need a gun policy in this state that is reasonable, that is balanced, that is measured. We respect hunters and sportsmen. This is not taking away people’s guns. I own a gun. I own a Remington shotgun. I’ve hunted, I’ve shot. That’s not what this is about. It is about ending the unnecessary risk of high-capacity assault rifles. That’s what this is about.”
The Cuomos must not A) love the Constitution or B) read the Constitution.
Again, who’s surprised?
Andrew Cuomo just got back from visiting Cuba where he praised the Castro boys. He was more friendly to Fidel and Raul than he is to New York State residents who are pro-life and pro-Second Amendment.
This is who the Cuomos are.
What makes this fun is Chris Cuomo really thinks he’s coming off as smart and the rest of us who actually read the Constitution are the dummies.
When pressed on Twitter to show where in the Constitution “hate speech” was excluded from the First Amendment, Cuomo cited the case law from “Chaplinsky” on “fighting words,” then proceeds to tell everyone to shut up!
You cannot make this stuff up!
What Cuomo fails to comprehend is, his initial tweet states “hate speech is excluded from protection. dont just say you love the constitution…read it”
He is citing the Constitution. He is instructing us to read the Constitution. And, when asked where in the Constitution is an exclusion of “hate speech” from the First Amendment, Cuomo avoids the question and, like a Tourette’s suffer keeps tweeting back “fighting words” and “Chaplinsky.”
Then, he demands the questioners “shut up.” Because, apparently, challenging Chris Cuomo — like “hate speech” — is “excluded from protection” in the Constitution.
So shut up!
Over on Twitchy, they point out that in 2011, the Supreme Court ruled 8 to one that “hate speech” is, in fact, protected by the First Amendment in the case Snyder v. Phelps. This was the case that gave the Westboro Baptist Church the right to protest at the funerals of fallen military.
Pamela Geller didn’t go to a mosque and stand outside with enormous picket signs with cartoons of Muhammad on them. She held a Free Speech event that had an exhibit of Muhammad cartoons.
But that doesn’t matter to Chris Cuomo.
What matters to Chris Cuomo is, in the case of the Garland terror attack, the victims are to blame because … “Hate Speech!” “Fighting Words” “Chaplinsky!” “Shut up!” “The Constitution, dummies!”
Honestly, what an idiot.
