Speaking of cognitive dissonance and/or willful hypocrisy. Don Lemon, the CNN clown that is on air not just for his racist rants against uppity Negroes that escape the plantation but also because of his two intersectional oppression points, black and homosexual, made what can only be construed as a thinly veiled threat on air recently. He said (emphasis mine):
“I keep trying to point out to people and not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity. But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, some people who are marching towards the border,” he said, dismissing the migrant caravan heading for the southern U.S. border as not a real threat to security.
“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,” he said. “And we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban. So, what do we do about that?”
So twice he says that we shouldn't demonize any group or ethnicity and then....demonizes an entire race and gender. White men, it should be pointed out, started Lemon's employer CNN (Ted Turner) . He has become very wealthy by appearing on television, which was also invented by various white men, in a nation founded by white men. As usual the sheer ingratitude of people like Don Lemon is amazing. Black people in America are better off in almost every possible way than blacks in significant majority black countries. They have more freedom, more economic opportunity, better health care, unmatched educational opportunities. That is why you don't see mass migration of blacks from majority white America or Europe and instead see the opposite, boats full of Africans paying thousands of dollars and risking their lives to get out of majority black Africa and into majority white Europe. I am sure Don could get a great job at Radio-Télévision nationale congolaise, the national broadcaster for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and he wouldn't have to worry about any of those awful white male terrorists. Why doesn't he move? Because he knows, although he won't say on air, that he has a great gig in majority white America working for a cable channel created by a white guy on a medium invented by white guys. Besides, he doesn't seem to hate and fear all white men....
Weird. I guess what he really means is that the wrong sort of white men are a threat to this country. The kind of white men that will have sex with another man are apparently OK.
Anyway, that is just garden variety ingratitude/race baiting/rank hypocrisy. I won't bother spending any time showing why, in real life as opposed to CNN, a black man is almost 100% more likely to be killed by another black man than a "white terrorist". What I found more interesting was this statement:
...we have to start doing something about them.
"We" have to start doing "something" about "them"? What ever could he mean? I doubt Don is planning on "doing something", he looks like a sissy. Walking around holding hands with your special fella will do that. So when he says "we" I assume he means "he" and others like him in the urban elite will send marching orders to their violent useful idiots in Antifa, the contemporary version of the Red Guard thugs Mao employed in the Communist Chinese "Cultural Revolution". Antifa is convinced that they are some sort of righteous enforcers of decency and "justice" but they are little more than a violent mob.
I know these sorts of thought experiments are tiresome but imagine someone on Fox News saying:
I don't want to demonize any group or ethnicity but while black men are less than 7% of the population they commit around half of all murders in this country. There is no travel ban on them. We have to start doing something about them.
Would any liberal person hear those words and not see menace? Would the media not be in full hysterical mode screeching about "dog whistles" and "inciting violence"? Of course they would. Still we are treated to CNN talking heads sniffily complaining about Trump calling them the enemy of the people. Guess what.
When someone directs that sort of language toward me they are my enemy.
Casually signaling to the unstable and uneducated antifa loons that "something needs to be done" about white men is an overt threat toward me, toward my adult white male sons and most of my friends and neighbors.
Don't whine about being painted as partisan opposition while you are in the same breath saying stuff like that.
Let me be even less subtle. A nancy-boy like Don Lemon thinks he is insulated from what they are unleashing. He lives in New York surrounded by NYC cops that he probably assumes are racist and millions of people that monolithically think like he does. He probably supposes that if the crapstorm they are trying to unleash happens, it won't impact them. They can still go to cocktail parties and have brunch on Sunday while reading the New York Times or whatever it is homosexuals in big cities do when they are not....ugh, never mind. Anyway. When the food stops coming in, the gas stations run out of gas and the power goes out, what are they going to do? When you unleash the hounds and they run out of easy targets in the cities, do you think these maniacs are going to just go back to not having jobs? No, they will just expand the target selection. When the EBT cards don't refill and the welfare deposits don't happen, the civil unrest won't ask who you voted for. Some antifa types are actually ideologues but an awful lot of them are just people who like to break crap and watch other people bleed, especially when they can attack someone they outnumber 10-1. They are little kids that like to pull the wings off of flies.
This is all simply intended as fair warning. The 2016 election was just the shot across the bow from people that have been pushed and pushed for decades saying they were not going to keep taking it. There is no going back from here. There is no "unifier" that will come save the union. One hundred million people that hate and are hated in return by a different hundred million people cannot stay in a political union. A nation must be more than a collection of interchangeable economic units/consumers united by some propositions that no one even agrees on anymore.
So Donnie, if you want to work things out and do something about white men, you can start with me. We can have coffee some time and talk it over. If you aren't satisfied with that? Well, let's hear your suggestions for what you think "we" should do about this scourge of white men. I'm all ears.
