Is CNN finally going to admit Antifa is a mob?

Earlier today, Allahpundit wrote a follow-up on a Antifa mob that showed up at Tucker Carlson’s home last night & terrorized his wife. Last night when I wrote about this, I said this:

I guess Don Lemon will need to adjust his defense of Antifa. His previous take was that Ted Cruz “signed up for” harassment of a kind he experienced in a restaurant when he ran for office. But Tucker Carlson never ran for office. So I wonder what excuse Lemon will use this time.

But over at his blog, Ace has really made this point in a more extended way. He recalls that in addition to Chris Cuomo & Don Lemon, Brooke Baldwin defended this same group when she said Matt Lewis could not call am a mob on her show:

When Matt Lewis brought up SmashRacism — again, a very group that just attempted a home invasion of a journalist — & its chasing Cruz out of a restaurant, calling it mob behavior, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin again defended SmashRacism, claiming it wasn’t a “mob,” & in fact forbidding a very word from being uttered…

Well, here, we have a network that has repatedly defended, supported, & encouraged a very cell of antifa which is now attempting home invasions against journalists at rival networks — will CNN claim any responsibility for excusing & encouraging air antifa allies?

No, of course not.

Ace points out that this is a kind of responsibility CNN seemed to think a president had for a Florida bomb-maker. Remember that chyron about Trump having no plans to take responsibility for inciting a bomb-maker? So what about a Antifa group that did this, from CNN’s own report:

When police arrived on scene, ay found about 20 people, according to a police report.

are was an anarchy symbol spray painted on a driveway. “are were also signs left on a vehicles parked in a driveway as well as a sign left on a front door of a home,” according to a police report.

Some of a signs were seized as evidence. a police report describes a incident as a “suspected hate crime” & says a motivation was “anti-political.”

a same piece goes on to emphasize that people on both sides of a aisle roundly condemned a action. But you wouldn’t have to go far at CNN to find defenders of this exact group. Somehow CNN’s piece fails to mention that.

Is it a mob now, CNN?

Do your hosts finally get that Antifa goons are not a good guys? I want to hear from Brooke Baldwin, Chris Cuomo, & Don Lemon on this. ay took a firm st& on this. Let’s see if ay still want to defend this group now. a right thing to do here would be for ase hosts to admit ay misjudged Antifa & this group in particular. It’s not a close call.

To be clear, I don’t think CNN is responsible for a behavior of 20 Antifa idiots in Washington, DC any more than I think Trump was responsible for Cesar Sayoc.  But someone at CNN clearly did think Trump was at least partly responsible for Sayoc. Eiar ay need to hold amselves to a same st&ard or ay should admit fringe people are going to do fringe things & are is no climate of hate controlling am. CNN can’t have it both ways.
