‘So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,’ Lemon continued.
Cuomo, a white man who is the son of one Democratic governor of New York and brother to another, looked on impassively as Lemon carried on.
‘There is no travel ban on them,’ Lemon said. ‘There is no ban on… you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no ‘white guy ban.’ So what do we do about that?’

Wrong headline but he is right that a type of angry white men, radicalized by Trump and other rightwing hate groups are the biggest terror threat, and fuck PC, they should be monitored closely and be imposed on them the same (if not more) scrutiny as it is done to Muslims.
Trump ordered the FBI to stop monitoring white rightwing groups because they are his terrorists. IMO, FBI should be ordered by Trump to increase the scrutiny on this terror threat if Trump wants to make Americans safe.

A professional black leadership group called out the controversial comments by Don Lemon in a statement to CNN’s president. The black leadership network, Project 21, declared that Lemon’s racist comments in a segment calling “white men” the “biggest terror threat” facing the U.S. “cannot stand.”
“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,” Project 21 co-chairs Stacy Washington, Horace Cooper, and Bishop Council Nedd II wrote in their statement to the network president.
“This cannot stand,” they continued, calling on CNN President Jeff Zucker to “put his own house in order” instead of just blasting President Donald Trump for his words.
“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” the co-chairs wrote. “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.”November 2, 2018 at 12:53 #3925Desert_FoxParticipant
Project 21 is a conservative public policy group. The organization refers to itself as “the National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives.”
According to its website, Project 21 is “an initiative of the National Center for Public Policy Research to promote the views of African-Americans whose entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to family and commitment to individual responsibility has not traditionally been echoed by the nation’s civil rights establishment.”
Gee, a conservative group. I wonder why they would disagree with Lemon’s accurate statement?
