The media is siding with the ‘Marxist’ BLM ‘mob’ – NaturalNews.com

(Natural News)
In a follow-up appearance on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday, St. Louis lawyer and home defender Mark McCloskey called out the liberal media and CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo for siding with the “Marxist” Black Lives Matter “mob” over the lives and property of him and his wife. It was an interview his lawyer advised him not to do, but his message was true.

Aside from being outraged at the city’s leftist district attorney for targeting his guest for gun confiscation and possible prosecution, FNC host Tucker Carlson also wanted to look at how the media were abusing them.

“Watch CNN’s resident bodybuilder explain the new standard,” Carlson said, noting the left was working to make it unacceptable to defend yourself from an attacker. And speaking of Fredo, Carlson astutely reminded his viewers to “Keep in mind as you watch, that the guy doing the lecturing in this tape has repeatedly threatened violence against others for invading his personal space. But he gets to do that. His brother is the governor.”

Of course, Cuomo’s penchant for physical violence has been exposed for a long time. He has repeatedly praised the left-wing domestic terrorist group Antifa, threatened to throw a Trump supporter down a flight of stairs, threatened a 65-year-old cyclist, and encouraged “protests” to be violent.

During their discussion, Carlson brought up McCloskey’s recent interview with Cuomo:

What do you make of the media response? You are lectured on another channel by a guy who’s repeatedly threatened violence against people – actually threaten violence against people for getting in his space and yet he dressed you down for defending your home. What do you make of at?

McCloskey’s response was a stinging rebuke of the media.

Well, you know, the traditional media is right behind the mob,” he stated, instantly quipping about how “we’re not allowed to use that word anymore.” “The loud crowd of angry people. And are supporting these entities which are, from my understanding, Marxist and oppose everything I stand for and I hold dear and near.”

He did have some good news to share, the hate-filled messages he was receiving had dwindled and now the vast majority of correspondence he got were from people cheering him on:

We’ve gotten tremendous support from ordinary people. My phones and my emails are running about 90 percent positive now. We’ve gotten calls from all over the world. I got a nice letter from a lady in Ireland this morning congratulated us for taking a stand against the violence. And so, I think the vast majority of Americans wish they could do something.

And I think it’s time for people to take a different stand. To actually stand up and have some risk. I mean, Patrick Henry said ‘give me liberty or give me death,’ and now everybody so afraid of losing their job,” McCloskey concluded, to Carlson’s agreement.

TUCKER CARLSON: For centuries, since the beginning of recorded history, self-defense has been the most basic principle of civilization, but now that we’ve “reimagine public safety,” it’s illegal.

Watch CNN’s resident bodybuilder explain the new standard. Keep in mind as you watch that the guy doing the lecturing this in tape has repeatedly threatened violence against others for invading his personal space. But he gets to do that. His brother is the governor.

CHRIS CUOMO: They did not go up your steps. They didn’t go to your house. They didn’t touch you. They didn’t try to enter your home. They didn’t try to do anything to your kids, but you say were assaulted. You’re using the civil definition of that, which is that you have the apprehension that something bad was going to happen to you. But nothing did. But to call it terrorism and the people are there protesting how the community is treated by the police is a little bit of a reverse psychology at minimum, is it not?

CARLSON: Now, it’s hard to know exactly what the CNN anchor was trying to say. Some of those sentences didn’t make sense, but you get the larger point. Homeowners who try to protect themselves from violence are the real terrorists now and they must be punished. Increasingly they are punished.

CARLSON: I don’t think there’s a homeowner in America who wants to defend his own home with a gun. I mean, that something you do if you have no choice. You’d much rather the police came and took the risk for you. That’s why you pay them. But they won’t.

What do you make of the media response? You are lectured on another channel by a guy who’s repeatedly threatened violence against people – actually threaten violence against people for getting in his space and yet he dressed you down for defending your home. What do you make of at?

MARK MCCLOSKEY: Well, you know, the traditional media is right behind the mob. I mean, we’re not allowed to use that word anymore. The loud crowd of angry people. And are supporting these entities which are, from my understanding, Marxist and oppose everything I stand for and I hold dear and near.

We’ve gotten tremendous support from ordinary people. My phones and my emails are running about 90 percent positive now. We’ve gotten calls from all over the world. I got a nice letter from a lady in Ireland this morning congratulated us for taking a stand against the violence. And so, I think the vast majority of Americans wish they could do something.

The problem is if nobody stands up and supports them, if the media blasts them, if they — I’m self-employed. I mean, I don’t own my own law firm. But what if I was an employee somewhere? If I did what I did and I was an employee of anybody else, I would have been canned the next day. My family would’ve been canned. No one would ever get a job again.

This is the kind of social pressure that keeps people from standing up and defending themselves.

CARLSON: That’s right.

MCCLOSKEY: And I think it’s time for people to take a different stand. To actually stand up and have some risk. I mean, Patrick Henry said “give me liberty or give me death,” and now everybody so afraid of losing their job.

CARLSON: I think you’re exactly right. Slogans like that are meaningless and less people in power stand up to defend the country.
