Greg Gutfeld: Division is all our political and media class wants and needs

Another day, another idiot on CNN.

CHRIS CUOMO, APRIL 16: Shootings? Gun laws? Access to weapons? Oh, I know when they will change. Your children are starting to get killed. White children are starting to get killed. Smoking that doobie which is actually legal, probably, in your state now, but they don’t know what it was, then the kid runs and then POP-POP-POP-POP. The cop was justified. “Why did you run? “Oh, he had a baseball game tonight.” Oh, a white kid from a big family, that house over there? These start to pile up, “What’s going on with these cops?” “Well, maybe we shouldn’t even have a police.” This kind of mania, this kind of madness, it will be you, it will be the majority because it is your people.

So Chris reveals that he’s a man who cares much more about black victims than his audience of white lilies. So he laughs at them. And what a shine; his solution to police brutality? No more police brutality. It’s like this diet where you get healthy by eating tons of ice cream and pizza. But since he suggested that white children might need to be killed by cops, maybe he’ll cover it up if that actually happens. Right now he would ignore that because it doesn’t fit the narrative that police brutality is only racial. But if Chris’ comments sound thoughtful, you were hit by a brick during a peaceful protest and have brain damage. Just a few months ago, we must remember, he was laughing at his concern for victims of violence.

So he went from “it’s okay you’re stupid” to “hey that’s a big deal and you’re still stupid”. Guess Chris saw his grades drop or maybe his brother harassed another staff member, so he had to be acting even crazier.


But Chris Cuomo is not alone. Another idiot also brought kerosene to an arson attack.

REPRESENTATIVE. MAXINE WATERS, D-CALIF., APRIL 17: We have to stay on the streets and we have to be more active, we have to be more confrontational. We have to make sure they know we are serious.

I have the feeling, Maxine, that this is not useful. After a week of violence, she calls for more chaos if the jury does not do what she wants or expects. This is decree extortion, and the media doesn’t care because they agree. Also, because Maxine doesn’t know where they live. Also, because they are too busy comparing black congressmen to the KKK.

The Salt Lake Tribune has just published a cartoon that indeed compares Burgess Owens to a member of the KKK. So how can a white doodle moron named Pat Bagley smear a black Republican, a former NFL star who has done nothing but good in his life and not be called a racist? It’s a bit like white people telling black people in dangerous neighborhoods that they need fewer cops. But you know that if Owens wasn’t Black, Bagley wouldn’t have cited the KKK. He took it off precisely because Owens is black. How does the Salt Lake Tribune deal with paying a racist?


Not to be outdone, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has now called out anyone who didn’t rig the 2016 primary for Hillary as a Nazi.

REPRESENTATIVE. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ, R-FLA., MSNBC, APRIL 18: Softer early Nazism eventually led to the Holocaust, and so if you don’t reverse the outrageous, racist, and truly perverse beliefs of Republicans and anyone like that , then we will live to repeat the discrimination and persecution of minorities or people considered “other” in the future.

So why do we call the people Klansmen and Nazis? I think it is not a question of initiating a debate, but of moving it away from sticky words. And if you don’t agree, you’re probably in the Klan. And if you find that disgusting, you’re a Nazi, an overused phrase more than I love bacon. And why? Because apparently we’re a nation of angry white men.

So we’ve drawn the line between who’s bad and who isn’t, and if you’re on the wrong side of that line, God help you. Americans are divided into different camps. And after the split comes the confrontation from one group to another. It is the history of the world that recedes. Rather than moving towards cooperation, we are resuscitating tribalism, doing the basic things we have learned through centuries of bloodshed. Cooperation and reciprocity? Faded away.


We’ve come a long way from warring factions whose disagreements were settled with a club or a spear. But today, for the chaotic media and political class, it’s the good old days because it means ratings and power. The truth is, most Americans agree that the police treatment of George Floyd was heinous. But this opportunity to come together has been used to divide us.

The deal does not get a new rental property expert. He does not win the election for a rich person who does not live in his poor neighborhood. Division is the quickest path to power as well as the most destructive. Don’t overthink it. No one else did.
