Conservatives are once again in an uproar after CNN host Don Lemon blasted white men for being the biggest threat of them all to America.
On Monday evening, Lemon appeared on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” with Chris Cuomo to discuss the recent shooting of a Black man and a Black woman in Kentucky which authorities are investigating as a hate crime.
The “CNN Tonight” host said he tries not to pinpoint any specific group as threatening, but there’s a more serious threat to America than illegal immigrants.
“Some people who are marching towards the border like it’s imminent,” Lemon told Cuomo. “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.”
The 52-year-old continued, “So we have to stop demonizing people 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.”
Cuomo nodded his head in agreement with Lemon.
“There is no travel ban on them,” Lemon concluded. “There is no ban on… you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no ‘white guy ban.’ So what do we do about that?”
Several conservatives and white folks condemned Lemon’s remarks and slammed him for his outspoken comments on social media.
President Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. was one of the first people to criticize the CNN host for his opines. He tweeted, “Amazing. I thought this was some sort of joke quote taken out of context but no… it’s just Don Lemon being a moron. Unfortunately this is how so many leftists actually think. Disgusting!”
Chuck Callesto, the former candidate for Florida’s 3rd Congressional District tweeted, “Take out the words “WHITE MEN” and REPLACE them with “BLACK MEN” and see how fast the HOST who says this GETS FIRED… Race BAITING at it’s FINEST… DEMS feed on DIVISION.”
Brit Hume, the Senior Political Analyst of Fox News responded, “I could hardly believe he actually said that, but the video shows he certainly did. Remarkable.”
