Poor Don Lemon.
He has a new book out about “racism.” No one is watching his show anymore though. Even with all of his competition banned from YouTube, you can’t force people to watch CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.
“Don Lemon, host of CNN’s Tonight with Don Lemon, has become a familiar voice of the day’s news. In his new book, This Is the Fire: What I Say to My Friends About Racism, Lemon weaves little-known moments in American history such as Louisiana’s 1811 German Coast Slave Uprising and its brutal suppression with his own life story, the Baton Rouge-born youngest and only son of a close-knit family family which urged him to push against the constraints on Black life. The book ends with predictions about the American future, a suggested reading list and what to watch homework. …
Why this book—a social commentary about racism—now?
I just didn’t want to write a book that was about Trump, [that] in some way capitalized on what he was doing. Every day in the news I was covering what he was doing and that was enough of a release for me to be able to get it off my chest.
But, there wasn’t enough of a release for the indignities that we saw George Floyd suffer on camera, and what we were finding out about the details of Breonna Taylor, and about what happened in Charlottesville [in 2017]. …”
If memory serves, we went to Charlottesville to support the Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson monuments in Lee Park and to oppose the Left’s war on American history.
Charlottesville had nothing to do with “racism.” We’ve been absolutely vindicated by subsequent events as the same insane people who opposed us in Charlottesville spent all of last summer rioting and canceling everything from the Washington Redskins to Aunt Jemima to neutering Mr. Potato Head and toppling statues of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington and dragging them in the dirt.
Everyone in the entire country now understands why we hate the brats. They understand why we went to Charlottesville to defend the Lee and Jackson monuments and to oppose those people. They understand now that there are no limits to censorship and cancel culture – Donald Trump was the president of the United States, presumably the most powerful man on earth, and they canceled him too.
Maybe you didn’t get it before. But now you get it. Now you see why we HATE them. If you are honest with yourself, you probably HATE them too for your own entirely legitimate reasons.
It is not about race.
It is about our total rejection of people who have this mindset. Wokeness is a sick and twisted worldview and the people who are most infected with it are the spoiled and pampered offspring of upper middle class White professionals. Just as the brats hate themselves for being White, we boast of not sharing their religion. White identity is something that should be celebrated as a positive good.
Don Lemon is the real victim here. There is a disparate impact in the hit that he has taken in his ratings since Joe Biden became president. It is because he is black.
