Still-Employed Don Lemon Lashes Out at Lockdown Protesters
CNN is at it again.
“What is wrong with you?” “Who the hell do you think you are?” asked CNN’s Don Lemon, arguably one of the dumbest people on TV, of the American people protesting that their basic rights have been taken away by power-hungry governors and mayors throughout the country. The economy is still tanking, unemployment is rising, and lives are being destroyed, but Lemon won’t even take that into consideration when it comes to why so many are getting fed up with the lockdowns.
As TheBlaze reports:
Lemon unloaded on Americans protesting stay-at-home orders, specifically those who are exercising their Second Amendment right while exercising their First Amendment rights.
According to Lemon, protesters — who are concerned that officials are using the coronavirus crisis as an opportunity to seize power — are “slapping the faces” of health care and other essential workers because they want their lives to return to normal.
“You’re out there with guns, with weapons strapped to your chest, saying, oh, you want to get — you’re fighting against the people who are telling you to stay at home, trying to save your lives, you’re upset with those people? In the meantime, there are people keeping your cities going, keeping your loved ones alive and you want to get a haircut?” Lemon said.
“Who the hell do you think you are?” the CNN host continued. “What is wrong with people? I don’t understand.”
Lemon later acknowledged protest rights, but mocked those protesting with guns and suggested they are hypocrites.
“I don’t want to hear from those people who are out there protesting with guns, right, and that is threatening — a threatening look for people. You’re protesting with guns,” Lemon said. “Don’t — don’t criticize people who are taking a knee at a ball game, entertainment, saying, ‘I don’t want people protesting at a ball game,’ when people are who are peacefully protesting — don’t give me that when you’re out there protesting with guns and saying, ‘I want to get back to work, I want my liberty.’
“Don’t be a hypocrite,” Lemon added, urging the protesters to support those who protest against government-perpetuated systematic injustice.
Well, Don, aside from the fact that it’s none of your business whether we want haircuts or not, we’re normal Americans who want our country to be what it can be and what it should. We don’t want the Left to use a crisis as an opportunity to “fundamentally transform” the nation. Don’t lecture people who’ve been standing for hours at a food bank after watching their life savings wiped out in a matter of weeks while you’re still employed at an air-conditioned studio.
But the media aren’t the “enemy of the people,” we’re told.
While the media incessantly whines about Donald Trump calling them that, they prove him right every single time.
