Showing as a visitor on Friday’s Actual Time present on HBO, CNN commentator S.E. Cupp demonstrated that she is the sort of ex-conservative CNN prefers — one who agrees with liberals on key points reasonably than troubling the liberal information community’s viewers with an opposing perspective.

Cupp not solely declared that she agrees with liberals on the “local weather change” subject, however she excoriated the Republican Occasion, claiming it was making an attempt to squash each voting and protesting. She declared that the GOP “makes pornography of patriotism and virtually fellates the Founding Fathers.” She additionally claimed that Republicans have been making an attempt to “rape democracy.”

As Invoice Maher introduced up the difficulty of the U.S. making an attempt to combat international warming, referring to President Joe Biden’s plans to restrict carbon emissions, the liberal HBO host lauded the President’s plans on the difficulty. Cupp then recalled that she had “developed” into agreeing with liberals on the difficulty:

I used to be first right here 11 years in the past, and I believe you and I’ve been speaking about local weather change in these 11 years. I’ve developed so much in my place — not since you’ve yelled at me for 10 years, proper? As a result of change would not occur on the barrel of a gun. I’ve developed as a result of science has been indeniable, and I’ve watched the science. I’ve even developed within the methods to unravel it — I agree with you.

A bit later, she went after Republicans for his or her push for brand spanking new voting legal guidelines as she charged that the GOP was making an attempt to undermine democracy:

In case your largest concept — your largest downside — is that there’s an excessive amount of democracy, and so, “There’s an excessive amount of voting — we have to crack down on that — an excessive amount of speech and protest and we have to crack down on that — an excessive amount of entry to info, let’s crack down on that.” I imply, what a punch within the intestine. And for a celebration — the Republican celebration — that makes pornography of patriotism and virtually fellates the Founding Fathers — it’s jarring and disorientating to look at them assault America this fashion.

Then, as if the violent protests and surge in violent crime which have occurred over the previous 12 months have been inconsequential, Cupp then complained about new anti-riot legal guidelines pushed by Republicans:

Republicans have 81 new anti-protest legal guidelines across the nation towards stuff that is already unlawful. Unlawful violence is already unlawful, proper? Looting is already unlawful. If one thing’s already on the books, they wish to make it super-extra-illegal or, , extra punishable — misdemeanors grow to be felonies — however that is what it seems like whenever you’re out of concepts. That is what it seems like whenever you’d reasonably rape democracy than provide you with your individual concepts. They usually’re carried out — they’re carried out with concepts. They’ve given up on concepts.

Is not this the grievance about “hate crime” legal guidelines? That unlawful violence is already unlawful? Not less than Cupp made it clear “I am voting with my pockets — I am voting with my mouth — I am voting with my ft. I voted for Joe Biden, and I am not supporting this celebration.”
