On the same night that Don Lemon compared all Trump supporters to the Capitol Rioters, his CNN colleague Anderson Cooper compared the Trump supporters in DC to those who carried out the Rwandan genocide of the 1990s when over 800,000 people were brutally murdered by armed militia members.
“We’ve seen it in Bosnia, we’ve seen it in Rwanda, where radios was telling people, you know, Hutus were telling the radio listeners that the Tutsi were cockroaches, you know, getting them ginned up for genocide,” Cooper said Tuesday evening.
“And you see it in these videos where people who claim they are patriots are in the face of a police officer,” Cooper said.
As the Washington Examiner points out, “an estimated 800,000 people were killed in Rwanda in 1994. Five people died during the Capitol siege on Jan. 6, including a woman, Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by law enforcement, and Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick”
