Cementing his Trump-conferred status as the Dumbest Man on Television, CNN’s Don Lemon got his network in hot water on Monday night after deeming “white men” the biggest terror threat in the United States today. In a conversation with Chris Cuomo on the former’s program, Lemon said that while Trump was busy banning Muslims and illegal immigrants from the country, white men continued to pose the greatest danger to national security.
“I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity, but we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else,” Lemon said. “Some people who are marching towards the border like it’s eminent. And the last time they did this, a couple of hundred people came and they, you know, most of them didn’t get into the country. Most of them got tuckered out before they even made it to the border.
“So we have to stop demonizing people,” Lemon continued, “and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.”
We have to stop demonizing people, this idiot says…right before demonizing people.
“There’s no travel ban on them,” Lemon mused. “You know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban. So what do we do about that?”
Gee, you could finally realize at this late date that there never WAS a Muslim ban? You could make the distinction between a religion (chosen) and a race (inherent)? You could stop trying to score points with metropolitan elitists by buying into this whole racist narrative? You could do that.
The president’s son, Don Jr., said it best with a quick tweet: “Imagine the outrage if you changed ‘white men’ with any other demographic?”
Lemon doesn’t want to open the floodgates here. If we’re going to start dividing America up by the races and making broad comments about the danger each one poses to society…no, he doesn’t want to go there. We have been vigilant as a nation about putting those statistics behind us, no matter how much they may say about this country, its varying cultures, and the different dynamics within each racial group. The left, in its neverending quest to divide us, is trying to bring it all back out into the open again. That is a tragic mistake, and Don Lemon should be aware that of all the victims of such a regressive mindset, white men will be the least affected.
