CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin offered a bizarre defense for Antifa and bashed President Donald Trump all in one erroneous, yet efficient, claim.
Toobin stated that “Antifa is widely perceived as an African-American organization” and that Trump’s criticism of the violent far-left group is just another example of his “appeal to racism.” Read more on this story here.
Filling in for Glenn Beck on Wednesday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Pat Gray, Stu Burguiere, and Jeffy Fisher discussed the inaccuracies in Toobin’s statement as well as the left’s fixation on making everything about racism.
After playing the CNN clip, the guys discussed Toobin’s claim that Antifa is an “African-American organization.”
“Antifa is widely considered just black people? By whom? By you [Toobin] maybe,” Pat said. “That says more about him then it does Donald Trump, a lot more. I mean, that’s racist. Nobody considers Antifa to be just black people. I consider them anarchists. I consider them hellbent on chaos and communism.”
Stu mentioned that Glenn’s in-depth coverage of Antifa gives detailed background information about the group, including that it is predominantly comprised of young, white people. You can watch Glenn’s videos on Antifa here.
“It’s not a racial organization at all … it started against fascism back in the day, and you could make an argument that when it started it did good things, but it’s evolved to ridiculousness. It’s just anything they don’t like,” Stu said.
“It’s agonizing to continually hear the nonsense that everything is about race,” Pat added. “And, you know, that just diminishes when things are about race. When you make everything about race, you’ve just watered-down the actually racism that does exist.”
