Don Lemon is a Racist; Now We Know

Katz: "Why is CNN okay with this?"

CNN host Don Lemon is clearly a racist, and his rhetoric has gone unchecked and unchallenged by his viewers, his co-workers, and the management of CNN who allow him to continue spewing his hatred unabated and without consequence.

The latest example of Lemon's hateful bias came during a segment of “Cuomo Prime Time” as host Chris Cuomo and Lemon were discussing the recent shooting of two black men in Kentucky that is being investigated as a hate crime. 

“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 imminent. 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,” Lemon told his CNN colleague. “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.”

WIBC host Tony Katz:

"We now know that Don Lemon has decided that this is the way to get ratings; this is the way to get people to his cause; this is the way to make himself a player. How is he doing it? Through some of the worst, ugly, demeaning hate possible."
