I can’t stand Don Lemon, and I make no apologies for that.
You know what it is?
It’s his smugness. He comes off smugger than any news anchor outside of Rachel Maddow—and that’s really saying something because there are a LOT of smug news anchors out there…Tucker Carlson included.
But while Tucker’s smugness comes off as funny and playful (MOST of the time. Other times, I can see why a Lib would want to punch him in the face), Lemon’s smugness is just mean-spirited and egocentric. He talks like he’s the smartest man on the face of the earth and he’s just waiting for you to catch up.
I would be able to stomach his lies and his Leftist narrative-pushing a LOT easier if he were less smarmy about it.
But what do you expect from a man that sees no problem sticking his hands down his pants and then rubbing them all over the face of a bartender? (Yes, he actually did that. He’s a sexual assaulter, and it’s going through litigation to find out what his punishment will be. Look it up.)
But most of all, he’s insincere and he’ll use the race card whenever it’s convenient to him.
Don Lemon On The Reality Of Being Black In America
Of course, being a Black man in America does come with some hardships. Anybody who denies that hasn’t paid attention to either history or current events.
However, if you think that Don Lemon has to deal with anything half as bad as the challenges facing 95% of the American population, then you’re as delusional as he is.
Don Lemon has it made in the shade, no two ways about it.
But this didn’t stop Lemon from making a pretty bizarre and tone-deaf statement in a show last week.
What’d Donny-Boy say?
This dummy told the Washington Post there had been a “false reality” that racism no longer existed in the US after the nation elected its first black President Barack Obama.
He went on to say that the election of Donald Trump became a “wake-up call to White people,” all while Black people have known that racism “was lurking beneath the surface” the whole time.
Lemon said, “We’re living in two different realities as Black and White people.” He then went on to describe the video of George Floyd’s death as an “equalizer” and said its timing was especially impactful because “we didn’t know what was going to happen the next day, or the next minute, or if we were going to have a job” due to the pandemic.
“Living in two different realities,” huh?
That’s funny, Don…
Especially seeing how you live in a $4.3 million home in Sag Harbor, Long Island, where 80% of residents are White.
My next-door neighbor is mixed, and the neighbor next to them is Latino…
My neighbors downstairs are Black…
And we all treat each other with courtesy and respect because we know that we’re in this together.
The Only Color Connected To Privilege… Is GREEN
We may look different, but what really connects us is the class we belong to.
Yes, there are absolutely still people in this country that judge people by the color of their skin—but those people are the dinosaurs hanging onto the past or the idiots believing the race baiters of the present.
In modern America today, it doesn’t come down to the color of your skin, but to the amount of money in your bank account.
Your zip code…your credit score…the make and model of the car you drive…these are the things that set people apart.
If you want to know what TRULY separates us, it’s not whether we’re Black or White, but how much GREEN we have in our pocket.
Lemon knows this.
Lemon lives a privileged life in a swanky neighborhood with his real estate agent fiancé.
If he truly believed what he says, why does his zip code—his entire reality—have fewer people of color than mine?
Don Lemon uses this race card to remind people that he’s Black and we should look at him as a victim – but the truth is, he’s nothing more than another oppressor.
He uses his platform to demean those that think differently than he does – and that is absolutely oppressive behavior.
Talk about a reality check…
Lemon needs to stop pointing fingers at others and start looking inwards for the troubles of the world…because he’s just as at fault as anybody.
