CNN’s Don Lemon descends into the madness of Racial Obsession Syndrome

Simply Pathetic Mr. Lemon

Lemon conducted an interview with NBA star LeBron James and discussed the issue of race in America. Lemon became emotional and went on a racially charged tangent while he was discussing the interview with his political panel

“I know people that watch and they say ‘Why are you guys talking about race? You’re race baiting. It’s not that bad.’ It is that bad,” he said. “And stop saying that. Start examining yourself. Why don’t you want to talk about it? Maybe I should be more open to talk about it. Maybe I should learn more about my neighbors of color or people who are not like me.”

Perhaps, Mr. Lemon, you should stop obsessing over skin color? Why is it Don Lemon thinks neighbors who “don’t look like each other” do not talk? Maybe they do not sit and pretend racism is rampant. Maybe they just chat, cookout, or enjoy each other’s company? In short, does Lemon ever think people of all races, are pretty much over race?

“What is it that I don’t know? What is it that I’m not exposed to? What am I not learning rather than every single time saying there is no racism. It’s all behind us. Slavery was a long time ago. That’s all really bullshit, if you’re watching at home and you’re saying that,” he concluded. “Not even LeBron James is exempt from racism and bigotry. What does that say about the state of this country?”

Well, Don, racism is largely a thing of the past these days. Yep, you can find a few racists, of all races if you look hard enough. In a country of 320 million, you can find most anything if you look hard enough. And, to be honest if CNN wants to find racism, they could start with some of their leftist guests who play the race card every time they can. Or he could look at leftists and their level of hatred for anyone who does not walk the line If you would take your victim glasses off you might see that most of us are past that now. And, of all the people to hold up as a victim you pick Lebron James? Yep, that guy is richer than rich, the greatest basketball player on earth, and adored by millions. What a victim! I don’t see how he manages with all the oppression he faces.

Is April Ryan the worst journalist evah?

April Ryan is a professional hack, do not try this at home kids

The Root, of course is a mix of leftists, race baiters, and wackos, but, I repeat myself. Ryan is no journalist, she is an activist, and a damned bad one playing a journalist.

Non-Breaking News: CNN hack Chris Cuomo is still a jerk

Asshat! He would never ask this if Obama were still president. 

“The Iran and Israeli situation… is there any concern that pulling the United States or threatening to pull it out of the Iran deal precipitated or helped provoke the actions that Israel is pointing out now in terms of missiles that were launched from Syria into the Golan heights?” Cuomo asked.

The left cannot bring themselves to blame terrorists, or rogue states that support them. It HAS to be Israel, or America’s fault

Nauert responded that it is “unbelievable” that people would try to blame the United States for Iran’s actions.

“You know, it’s unbelievable that some would try to blame the United States for Iran’s actions,” Nauert said. “It’s unbelievable that others would try to blame Israel for this. Iran is responsible for many bad acts around the world.”

Chris, you ignorant ass!

 

Alisyn Camerota stunned that Totalitarian Wannabe David Hogg was turned down by some colleges

She fawns over him like he is the second coming

Steven Crowder does not see to impressed by Hogg and his seven inch arms

Maybe Hogg’s rejection has something to do with him being a prickly pinecone shoved deep into America’s rectum. There’s also the matter of him being a monumental dunce. The Hogginator can’t make a case against the Second Amendment without going straight to ad hominem attacks and outright lies. What makes you think he’d be any better at making a case for himself in an admissions essay?

There’s also the matter of little Davey’s melanin content, or lack thereof. Sad to say, even with the best GPA and SAT scores, being a few shades too white is going to set him back. Hogg’s on the record lamenting his white privilege in interviews. I guess he can consider community college his penance. The universities have already met their quota for ultra-authoritarian honky leftist troublemakers. Their policies, not mine.

Alisyn Camerota “fuming” over Hogg’s college woes is further proof of where CNN’s political allegiances lie. They already let Dave get away with spreading lies and calling NRA members “child murderers.” Now, they’re chastising universities for telling their little friend to piss off.

Word to the wise, it’s not journalism if you’re picking sides. CNN is showing no objectivity whatsoever with the gun-grabbing Parkland kids. With all their blatant biases showing, it’s a wonder people still believe CNN is anything other than the fakest of the fake.

BINGO! That, Leftists is truth to power!

Don Lemon vies for Journalism Fail Hall of Shame

Good Freaking Grief what planet does this fool live in?

On Monday night, near the end of his CNN Tonight show, host Don Lemon got into a heated debate with right-leaning CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer after she began criticizing the media for giving the anti-gun Parkland student activists a forum to make incendiary attacks on the NRA and other opponents of gun control.

After she complained that, if you criticize the behavior of some of the students, “all of a sudden you’re the bad guy,” Lemon shot back: “You are the bad guy. Yes, you are, you are. These kids suffered an unimaginable tragedy. You let them vent, and then you move on.”

Continuing to dismiss her concerns about giving air to one side of a political debate without being allowed to respond with appropriate criticism, he soon added: “We’re not elevating them. And they deserve to have every elevation because of what they went through, and we should listen to them because I can’t imagine what they went through.”

So, if you are traumatized, and under the age of 18 then you get to say whatever you want? No matter how false? Not only that, but everyone else must elevate you, and do whatever you suggest because if you don’t you are the BAD GUY! The truth? BAH! Don Lemon don’t need no stinkin’ truth!

UH-OH! I wonder if the CNN Brownshirts will come after me now?

CNN has crossed a line. Think about this. They basically hunted down a person for making a gif file, for engaging in political satire, and threatened him unless he, straightened up, you might say. Ann Althouse weighs in

This is Andrew Kaczynski at CNN, who doesn’t seem to have any idea how bad this is:

CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.

CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change….

So, when did the media’s job become bullying those engaging in free speech, satirists, or anyone that offends the Brownshirts at CNN?  I am sure Stalin would approve of CNN targeting someone for exercising a God-given liberty! Stalin did not believe in liberty, neither does CNN apparently. Who else might find themselves on CNN’s radar?

Remember, this is not about media bias, or fake news. This is a weaponized media going after an American citizen for engaging in commentary/satire/parody. Think long and hard about that. How can any CNN reporter or anchor not tender their resignation over these deplorable tactics? This is thuggery, period! Even liberal outlets are stunned

“I can’t emphasize how bad this is on CNN’s part,” wrote German Lopez, a reporter for liberal website Vox. “This is basically ‘don’t post stuff we don’t like or we’ll dox you.’ Extremely unethical.”

“That’s essentially blackmail. That’s CNN stating that it will out the guy if he dares to defy their political perspective or offends them sufficiently,” wrote conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. “The whole story is frightening, and obviously an attempt to both nail Trump and discourage people from smacking CNN.”

So, I suppose we all should do what we think best. And being intimidated? Not me! Here ya go CNN!

A bloviating race pimp, a loudmouth bigot and a man with common sense walk onto a CNN set

I think the readers can determine which is which here

Exit question. Is there anyone who uses more big words without actually saying anything than Michael Eric Dyson? And Symone Sanders? Is she anything else but an overt racist? Watch

My Brief Take On The Debate (Mark Levin)

My Brief Take On The Debate (I Will Discuss It More Fully On My Program Tonight) – Mark Levin

.

.
1. CNN’s format was awful. The entire effort was intended to instigate fights between and among the candidates. They wanted a brawl. The early part of the debate was the worst – right out of the box, piling on Donald Trump. Like Trump or not, this is a Republican debate. As I’ve been saying for a while, when will the RNC stop turning over the GOP debates to the media? I find these debate formats demeaning of the candidates and not particularly informative.

2. Twice now Ted Cruz was treated as a third-tier candidate. He received very little time and was rarely called on. Moreover, when he tried to speak as a”skeptic” during the discussion about global warming – where Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, and Chris Christie apparently accepted the supposed”science” of global warming – Jake Tapper rudely cut him off. When Cruz had about 60 uninterrupted seconds or so to address the Iran deal debacle, he was superb. Same with the Supreme Court. There appears to be a pattern in these debate to marginalize him. Unfortunately, given the nature of these debates, he needs to become a bit more aggressive in pushing his way into the discussions.

3. Tapper repeatedly sought a fight between Jeb Bush and Trump, which is why they wound up using more time than most of the other candidates. Did we learn anything from most of it? No.

4. Going in, I believe the establishment media were poised to declare Carly Fiorina a victor over Trump and most of the field as she has become one of the establishment favorites. The indications were everywhere. In fact, most of the same voices and writers who opposed Trump and before him Cruz are singing her praises today. They are no longer concerned about lack of governing background of an outsider or flip-flopping, etc. I remember in the 2010 GOP Senate primary race in California she staked out the moderate Republican position against State Representative Chuck DeVore. She didn’t sound like a traditional, Reagan conservative back then. And her response to the birthright citizenship questions were wrong and jumbled. In fact, Trump has a superior understanding of the issue. Rand Paul reluctantly had to agreed. And in that Senate campaign, Fiorina mocked Barbara Boxer’s looks (understandable), a fact ignored by Tapper last night. Why? The audio is public. Finally, her record as a corporate CEO is mixed. But do not expect it to be scrutinized by her cheerleaders in and out of the media. But the Democrats won’t ignore it. Let me be clear: I have nothing against Fiorina, but there’s reason to be at least a little skeptical.

and
http://fortune.com/2015/09/16/donald-trump-fiorina-lucent
(You can search the record further yourself, do not expect the media to do it for you.)

5. I thought Chris Christie did pretty well. He’s a good debater. But the problem is that his record belies much of his more recent conservative rhetoric and positions. Mike Huckabee always scores some solid points but, again, his record is shoddy (e.g., he supported virtually every GOP establishment candidate in recent Senate primary races). I remain perplexed as to why John Kasich belatedly jumped into the race. He has become more liberal than GOP primary voters and there were already a number of establishment candidates in the race. I like Ben Carson very much; however, his position on the minimum wage was not particularly strong. And his delivery is, sadly, problematic. There’s a middle ground between loudly provocative and speaking in such quiet tones. That said, I personally like him very much. Rand Paul did much better this time around in staking out his more libertarian views. But, again, his attack-dog tactics against Trump don’t help him. Scott Walker is a solid conservative with a record to prove it. He did better in this debate but he doesn’t shine in these debate formats. Jeb Bush did better in this debate as well, but he is still under-performing. In fact, many in the establishment media who were touting Bush are today cheerleaders for Fiorina. Had Bush scored well they’d be touting him. Finally, Trump came under an early withering assault, which was the game plan of both CNN and several of the other candidates. For the most part, he withstood the attacks. I may be in the minority but I thought he bested Fiorina on their back-and-forth about business acumen and birthright citizenship. In any event, he did no harm.

More tonight on my radio program.

Republican Primary Debate Ratings Set New CNN Record

GOP Debate Ratings Appear To Set New CNN Record – CNN

.

.
Wednesday’s GOP debate appears to be the highest-rated event in CNN’s history, according to preliminary Nielsen ratings.

The prime time debate averaged a 14.7 household rating, indicating that 1 in 7 American homes with TVs tuned in.

These are NFL-level ratings – affirming that the Donald Trump fueled Republican debate slate is one of the most popular television shows of the year.

The overnight ratings estimates are subject to adjustments. But the 14.7 rating is likely to translate to 20-plus million viewers once final viewership figures come out Thursday afternoon.

Fox’s GOP debate last month received a 16.0 preliminary rating the next morning. That number later extrapolated to 24 million live viewers. (Another 1.1 million viewers watched via DVRs.)

Fox’s debate was two hours long while CNN’s was three hours.

From a campaign’s perspective, longer might have been better, because it gave candidates more time to talk and argue. It also gave CNN more time for commercial breaks.

But the length may diminish the overall ratings a bit. That’s because the ratings are an average of minute-by-minute viewership, so if viewers didn’t stay for the whole program, the average will be lower.

Hour-by-hour ratings may illuminate this viewer behavior later in the day.

But even the overnight ratings show that these GOP debates are drawing viewers who never bothered turning on a debate before.

For comparison’s sake, CNN’s most-watched presidential primary debate before Wednesday was a Democratic debate on January 31, 2008. It had an average of 8.3 million viewers.

CNN’s most-watched program program ever was a special “Larry King Live” episode in 1993. The episode featured Al Gore and Ross Perot debating NAFTA and averaged 16.8 million viewers.

Wednesday’s debate also set a live-streaming record for the network.

At the midway point of the debate, there were 921,000 concurrent users on CNN’s live stream, easily making it the most-watched web stream of a primary debate ever.
