Video out of Minnesota shows a CNN crew being attacked by Antifa and BLM protesters before being chased out of the area.
The clip shows a man who was part of the CNN crew working with Miguel Marquez being struck on the head by an object, presumed to be a full water bottle, before falling to the ground.
A second clip shows the same man and Marquez fleeing the scene as they are pelted by more objects before beating a hasty retreat.
“We’re leaving, we don’t want any trouble,” states the man who was hit by the water bottle.
“What did they do?” asks one of the protesters.
“CNN being bitches,” responds another as the vehicle continues to be pelted with eggs as the CNN crew drive away.
While the incident was unfortunate for the assault victim, CNN as a network has routinely run defense for Antifa or even outright praised their actions.
Back in April 2019, CNN host Chris Cuomo said Antifa fought for a “good cause,” despite endless examples of them using indiscriminate violence.
“You talk about Antifa – I’ve watched them in the streets protesting in different situations – there are certainly aspects of them that are true to a cause – that is a good cause – they want social justice,” said Cuomo.
Cuomo made the comment after the Department of Homeland Security in New Jersey officially listed Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization in 2018.
During last year’s Black Lives Matter riots, Cuomo also asserted, “Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful.”
CNN also infamously featured a reporter describing the BLM mayhem in Kenosha as “mostly peaceful” even as fires raged behind him in the live shot.
CNN also previously gave a platform to 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen, a domestic terrorist who tried to massacre ICE agents in 2019 and left a manifesto saying, “I am Antifa.”
