If you’ve ever had the misfortune of being subjected to CNN blaring away at the gym, airport, or other public space, chances are you may have seen Don Lemon’s rather smug face fill the screen more than once.
From his highly privileged position on television, Lemon sure does love to lay into Americans who dare to believe in traditional values, and, you know, basic border security. Then again, since Mr. Lemon is so comfortably ensconced in fake news media land, it is little wonder he has no concept of real work, not to mention real life.
After all, Lemon makes a living from fakery.
He also makes a living from whipping up the masses into a frenzy, all for the delightful ratings that still dwindle in comparison to Fox News, and, increasingly, News Max. Lemon has most recently been whipping up his declining base by insisting that all Americans can be shot at any time in any place.
“Every single one of us is just playing the odds at this point. The odds that in a country of 325 million souls that we won’t be the ones who get hit by the next bullets that start flying. We won’t be the one that gets that phone call about someone you love who did. That phone call that changes your life …
But with every deadly shooting in this country, the odds get worse and worse. Are you really willing to keep playing those odds? Haven’t we learned after this year of pandemic, a year of loss of life, isolation, mass death of nearly 550,000 Americans that life is just that precious? If not now, when? When will we ever learn? I don’t want to have to say those words again.” [Source: Fox News]
“Just playing the odds at this point?” Where are we, Lemon, in the hottest war zone of Iraq or Afghanistan? Is America’s infrastructure laden with nothing but improvised explosive devices (IEDs) for as far as the eye can see?
And as for “when will we ever learn?” Hm, maybe around the same time that fake news decides to quit lying and start reporting actual facts (hint: melodrama does not constitute facts).
However, apparently Lemon has gone a few steps too far this time, even for CNN, which is precisely why an ex-producer for the network is calling for Lemon to be “reined in,” given his rather irresponsible commentary.
This commentary is all the more irresponsible when considering Lemon’s own comments towards Trump in 2018, where he ironically raged over Trump’s supposed rhetoric.
“We are not the enemy. We are not trying to silence you. It is the job of the free press to report the facts, to ask questions, tough questions, ones you don’t like …
No matter how many times you attack us as fake news, we will continue to do our jobs. When you make that baseless and incendiary charge, be aware that people are listening to you. Some very dangerous people.” [Source: The Hill]
“We are not trying to silence you?” Hm, Lemon, care to explain the movements initiated by Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube in this regard? If that isn’t silencing, what is?
If anyone needs to be silenced, it’s the biggest King of Rhetoric of all: Barack Obama, who apparently just can’t resist continuing to tear America down, long after he should have retired from DC and enjoyed living the rest of his life off of fat cat pay for speeches, from the likes of Goldman Sachs and others (talk about privilege, again).
Tucker Carlson, one of the sanest personalities in the media today, commented on Obama’s rather intriguing self-perception, not to mention public actions, as well.
“Today, Obama took a break from becoming one of the richest men in the world to issue a statement blaming racism and misogyny for today’s killings. So a guy who appears to be white, shoots a group of white people and Barack Obama calls it racism … Barack Obama had managed to divide Americans a little more than they were yesterday.” [Source: Breitbart]
Well, Carlson, it looks like Obama’s hatred of America will never cease, no matter how many millions the nation has made him (and continues to make him).
Then again, division is also profitable, as evidenced from all the viciousness on fake news media, which is precisely why Obama has apparently decided to reveal who he really is, per Carlson: “a racial arsonist.”
“More than any other contemporary American leader, Barack Obama is a racial arsonist. He emerges at our most vulnerable moments to deepen the wounds that divide us. He sows hate. Why does Barack Obama do this?” [Source: Breitbart]
Well, to make a long story short, Obama does this because he can. After all, he’s effectively serving a third term now, merely using Biden as a puppet and Kamala as a co-conspirator.
It is quite clear America needs serious help … Starting with the insanely irresponsible fake news media and its biggest personalities, chief among them division-loving Don Lemon.
