The 24 seconds of pure, unfiltered, racism spewed from CNN’s Don Lemon recently, to which even leaders of the Project 21 Black Leadership Network denounced him for, is just the latest example from the liberal establishment media of “white hate.”
CNN refused to issue a statement or even address the racism aired on their network by Lemon, according to the AP.
The co-chairmen of Project 21, which has been a leading voice of black conservatives for over 25 years, Horace Cooper, Bishop Council Nedd II and Stacy Washington, issued the following statement after Lemon’s remarks:
Within a space of five seconds, CNN’s Don Lemon went from saying we shouldn’t demonize people to broadly labeling white men as our nation’s “biggest terror threat.” That’s not responsible journalism. This cannot stand. CNN President Jeff Zucker recently called out the White House for its criticism of the media, saying President Trump doesn’t comprehend the importance of the words he uses. It’s time for Zucker to put his own house in order – starting with explaining how Don Lemon’s outrageous statement can stand in light of Zucker’s call for civility.
A number of people also pushed back at Lemon on social media, with former trial attorney and political and legal analyst for Fox News, Gregg Jarrett, stating “CNN’s Don Lemon has now removed all doubt that he is a racist, hypocrite and idiot all rolled into one. Quite the accomplishment.”
Others like Sebastian Gorka called Lemon a racist and Mark Levin dubbed him a lunatic, but apparently Lemon subsequently doubled down on his racist claim.
A PATTERN OF HATE IN THE MEDIA
Lemon has been criticized by others previously for the racist nature of remarks he has allowed on his show. In October, football legend Herschel Walker called on CNN to fire Lemon after Lemon laughed when one of his gusts referred to rapper Kanye West as a “token negro of the Trump administration. Lemon also allowed another to assert “Kanye West is what happens when Negros don’t read.”
Walker tweeted out to CNN “Went to bed appalled over @donlemon despicable behavior laughing at @TaraSetmayer and @Bakari_Sellers awful remarks about Kanye West’s visit with @realDonaldTrump!! Woke up wondering why @CNN doesn’t take all three off the air?#SHAMEFUL #CNN”
The pattern of hate by the liberal media and their liberal followers can be seen in the constant terminology used against any African American that does not toe the official liberal narrative. We have seen TPUSA’s Candace Owens called a “coon,” an “Uncle Tom,” and even, astoundingly, a “White Supremacist,” for no reason other than she is a conservative black voice.
According to liberals the GOP is the “white” party, despite the fact that some prominent GOP politicians happen to be black, but they too are often slurred with the “token negro,” or “Uncle Tom,” label, so it all comes down to the fact that for the liberal media and their panel guests, any slur can be thrown out there if it is against whites or anyone they deem has sided with Republicans, but according to them, everyone else are the racists.
Look at the New York Times’ recent hire to their editorial board, Sarah Jeong, who had a long history of spewing racist vitriol on Twitter.
Even after Jeong was exposed as a anti-white racist, the NYT continued to employ her. Black conservative Candace Owens recently conducted a little experiment by taking Jeong’s tweets and replacing the word “white” with black or Jewish and Twitter liberals suspended her …. yet they left Jeong alone.
What does that tell you? It tells me that racism against whites is tolerated, in fact encouraged by Silicon Valley and the media, yet they will penalize racism against others.
I see two different arguments continuously used by liberals on social media to justify the white hate permeating the MSM.
1) Claims that “reverse racism,” doesn’t really exist. I agree, there is nothing “reverse” about it, racism is racism, hating or discriminating against a group of people based on their skin color, is racist. Just as attacks against a group because of their religion is bigoted. Period.
2) They of course blame President Trump, claiming, without any proof whatsoever that he is a racist, therefore the hatred against whites is his fault.
Blatantly untrue as shown by a Rasmussen poll from back in 2013, you know, before Donald Trump entered the political fray, which found that more Americans saw black Americans as racist than white Americans, and those findings even crossed color lines with more black Americans agreeing.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults think most black Americans are racist, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% say the same of most Hispanic Americans.
There is a huge ideological difference on this topic. Among conservative Americans, 49% consider most blacks racist, and only 12% see most whites that way. Among liberal voters, 27% see most white Americans as racist, and 21% say the same about black Americans.
From a partisan perspective, 49% of Republicans see most black Americans as racist, along with 36% of unaffiliated adults and 29% of Democrats.
Among black Americans, 31% think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way.
So much for it being President Trump’s fault.
