During an unhinged rant last night on ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ CNN host Chris Cuomo made the absurd and creepy claim that we, as a nation, lack faith in the pledge of allegiance because we refuse to live the right way.
Watch as Cuomo further claims we must reaffirm our pledge of allegiance to the “collective” and if we don’t it’s because we don’t care enough about others:
Read the transcript, it’s rather enlightening and revealing:
“No matter what you choose it to be, we must all believe in something bigger than ourselves. For the religious, you know, like the ones I mentioned, it’s god. But for all of us, religious, secular, whatever, there is still a call to something bigger. It is the pledge of allegiance to the collective, one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

That pledge needs to be reaffirmed right now. We are in a bad spot. We are mired in a time of a plague-like pandemic, and we are mired largely because of us and a collective lack of faith in the facts and the lack of faith to that pledge of allegiance.
Too many refuse to live the right way, with masks and with restraint, to hold back the variants. As a result all of us are suffering.
Covid is rising again. The CDC director is now warning of impending doom if we don’t work together to ward off a fourth wave. But the vaccine, people say. Yes, the vaccine. It matters.
But it has always been about time. This tension between vaccine and variants. The numbers tell the story. We have less than 20% of us fully immunized. We need to live right. Otherwise the variants are going to make people sick, hospitalized sick, dead from being sick.
How many before we can get people vaccinated? You heard the president today. 90% of adults in America will be eligible to get a shot by three weeks from now. The question is, how many will we let get sick? How many will die when we are so close and as a function of our own choices?
It depends on the question of allegiance. How much do you care about other people?”
