Knowles: Don Lemon Spouting ‘Sheer Uninformed Racism’ On CNN

By  Jacob Airey

In Wednesday’s episode of “The Michael Knowles Show,” Michael mocked CNN host Don Lemon, whom he called “not a serious person,” and noted that Lemon has recently taken to spouting “sheer uninformed racism” on the network.

He played a clip of CNN anchor Don Lemon claiming, “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.”

“We have to stop demonizing people and remember that white men are evil,” Knowles responded. “We have to stop demonizing people and we need a travel ban on white men. By the way, I don’t think a travel ban is going to do a lot. The white men are already here. The white men are in your midst. They are already in the country. Who knows even where to begin on this, because just on the point, I hate even to bring it up, but Don Lemon brought it up so I have to answer. Just on the point, he’s saying that the great terror threat in America is from white men.”

Knowles pointed out that recent statistics are showing that crime is at a 30-year low, despite the fact that the Left is claiming that crime is on the rise. “I think it’s just a bias of living in the present and of watching media and reading the newspapers,” he opined.

“Obviously, Don Lemon is not a serious person,” Knowles said. “Don Lemon is the guy that when that Malaysian jetliner went down in 2014, you remember it was this bizarre mystery nobody knew where the Malaysian jet was. It was Don Lemon who went on television and suggested that there was a supernatural cause, that the jetliner was abducted by aliens or something.”

Knowles continued, “We have known for at least four years that Don Lemon is not a serious person, but it’s very easy to mock him and other media figures when they’re suggesting that E.T. abducted a jetliner full of 200 people. It’s a little more frustrating when he starts spouting just sheer racism, sheer uninformed racism on CNN but that’s the left for you.”

Video and transcript below:

You know we have to stop drinking beer and we have to remember that beer is delicious and quenches your thirst wantonly and that’s why we have to stop drinking beer.

You know, that is what he just said.

We have to stop demonizing people and remember that white men are evil. We have to stop demonizing people and we need a travel ban on white men.

By the way, I don’t think a travel ban is going to do a lot. The white men are already here. The white men are in your midst. They are already in the country.

Who knows even where to begin on this, because just on the point, I hate even to bring it up but Don Lemon brought it up so I have to answer. Just on the point, he’s saying that the great terror threat in America is from white men. Any way you slice that assertion, it is patently false. There is just no evidence for it whatsoever. To begin, violent crime is at 30-year lows. There’s actually a number of studies that show that people year over year always think that crime is increasing. I think it’s just a bias of living in the present and of watching media and reading the newspapers. Violent crime is at 30-year lows. That said, when you just talk about terrorism, there have been 97 Islamic terrorist attacks in the U.S. since September 11th. Now, fortunately, some of those had been thwarted like the car and knife plot at Ohio State in 2016.

Many of those have not been thwarted, like the pulse nightclub shooting, which was done in the name of Isis and Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.

But 97 Islamic terrorist attacks in the U.S. since 9/11. How many terrorist attacks by white guys? I’m not saying none. There have been a couple. There was that kid who shot up the black church. Remember him? That seemed to have been a terrorist attack. We have to define our terms too. Terrorism has a meaning. Terrorism is when you target civilians to advance a political agenda. That’s why we have the Geneva Conventions, is to protect civilians. That’s why terrorists are not covered by Geneva Convention protections, because terrorists undermine those very protections, those very incentives. Terrorists target civilians to advance a political agenda. So maybe that kid who shot up the black church could be a terrorist attack. Maybe a few others. Some are just what would be called hate crimes. Some don’t really have a political agenda. A guy in Pittsburgh hates Jews. I can’t exactly see what his political agenda is. I’m not sure that he exactly has one. I suppose it’s debatable, but that is just a horrific crime. The Islamic terrorist attacks are there to advance a political agenda, to advance a terrorist organization that seeks political goals, that seeks the conquest of territory. The Islamic state and its various agencies.

So, on that point, obviously it’s absurd but let’s say that Don Lemon is speaking just about murder or something. Just about killing broadly and that that’s why they’re the source of terror. According to the FBI 2016, in the year 2016, I think it’s the most recent we have numbers for. Around 1,400 murderers in the United States were non-Hispanic whites. Around 1,700 murderers were black. Now obviously 12% of the population is black, about 88% of the population is white, but a majority of the population is white so the murder rate among just among black people is significantly higher. A lot of this is gang-related. A lot of this is in particular hot beds of crime.

I am NOT suggesting any racial correlation, any innate aspect of race, that causes criminality. I’m not suggesting that at all. I’m responding to Don Lemon who is suggesting that, who brought it up and one has to respond to it, because his claim is so wildly absurd. But just consider how race obsessed the left is now that we’re even having this discussion.

What are the causes of crime? The causes of crime are evil. What are the causes of evil?

Well there’s the personification of evil and then there are people who, through bad culture, through bad character, through bad situations, through bad family experiences, are more likely and more prone to fall into that sort of evil but Don Lemon goes right for race and the left broadly goes right for race.

Obviously, Don Lemon is not a serious person. Don Lemon is the guy that when that Malaysian jetliner went down in 2014, you remember it was this bizarre mystery nobody knew where the Malaysian jet was. It was Don Lemon who went on television and suggested that there was a supernatural cause, that the jetliner was abducted by aliens or something. We have known for at least four years that Don Lemon is not a serious person but it’s very easy to mock him and other media figures when they’re suggesting that E.T. abducted a jetliner full of 200 people. It’s a little more frustrating when he starts spouting just sheer racism, sheer uninformed racism on CNN but that’s the left for you.
