CNN’s Don Lemon isn’t just the dumbest man on television, like President Trump has said, he’s also one of the most dangerous.
While his gaslighting in the past has no doubt inspired left-wing kooks around the country to at least consider violence against conservatives and supporters of the president, his recent rhetoric is going to get someone killed one of these days – and when it happens, he needs to be held legally accountable for it.
During his nightly hand-off with another of the network’s lunatics, Chris Cuomo, on Wednesday, Lemon proclaimed that anyone and everyone who voted for the president – that would be nearly 75 million Americans at last count – was a member of, or aligned with, the Ku Klux Klan, as well as responsible for the riot-nee-‘insurrection’ at the U.S. Capitol Building last week.
Lemon told fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that there was no longer any excuse for people who quietly supported Trump and also say they were not part of the extremist groups that also supported him, some of whom stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Lemon began by saying that the Capitol riot was about “preserving whiteness,” not about conservative principles or anything else.
“They were wearing Nazi insignia on their clothing. They were neo-Nazis. They were fascists or fascist supporters. They were members of groups that people in Washington should not be fighting for at this point.”
Lemon went on to say that politics had to be taken out of the conversation because it created an easy way out for those who would defend the rioters, giving them an excuse to not have the more difficult conversation about race.
Yeah, ‘let’s take politics out of this.’ Right.
First of all, Lemon probably wouldn’t know a member of the Democrat-inspired KKK if he bumped into one. And it would be extremely hard to do that anyway, given that the group’s ranks are nearly non-existent in this day and age.
Further, it is time for conservatives to stop accepting the left’s premises on just about any issue; they fabricate, they lie, they purposely distort, they gaslight — and then ask us to respond to points and issues that aren’t real to begin with.
The Capitol Building incident is a classic example. The FBI already believes that certain individuals planned it. Other reports suggest that some participants were actors — that is, they were dressed in certain items and carried certain symbols for the effect of having idiots like Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo tout them as ‘typical Trump supporters’ (like we haven’t heard that lie for five years). Still other reports claim that items used in the assault were prepositioned.
Not even former Soviet leader Mikail Gorbachev believes what happened Jan. 6 was real.
But Lemon does. And when he spews it as fact to his audience, describing 75 million Americans as something less than human, he’s putting people’s lives in danger.
And he ought to be held accountable for it.
