Skip to comments.CNN's Don Lemon: ‘I Don’t See Democrats Killing People’ Over Politics
Posted on 11/01/2018 8:47:52 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
CNN anchor Don Lemon said on his show Monday that he sees only right-wingers, not Democrats, committing murders over their political beliefs.
Conservative commentator Mike Shields argued on Lemons show,CNN Tonight, that blaming fear-mongering from Fox News over the Central American immigrant caravan for the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh was disgusting and outrageous.
Shields brought up the Bernie Sanders supporter who shot Representative Steve Scalise at a Republican congressional baseball practice in 2017, apparently motivated by his political disagreements with the GOP.
Liberal commentator Max Boot accused Shields of blaming Sanders for the shooting, something he had not suggested and that he patently denied.
Youre not being honest, Lemon told Shields, a recurring guest on the show. This is not equal, and I understand the whole argument about both sides.
So if youre not equivocating, if youre not saying that theyre equal in comparing them, then why are you bringing that up? the host asked. Bernie Sanders is not the president.
Critics of President Trump have blamed his provocative rhetoric for Saturdays synagogue shooting as well as the string of pipe bombs sent to high-profile Trump critics last week.
So why do you keep bringing up other people instead of talking about the person who is the president of the United States, the rhetoric that is being spouted by one network, and the conservative media? Lemon said. Why not just take ownership of that and talk about how you can correct it on that side instead of this whataboutism?
For both sides to understand this, they both have to realize they contribute to it, okay? Shields responded.
The right-wing group killed the woman in Charlottesville. This guy is a right-winger who killed the people in the synagogue. The right-winger sent bombs to CNN and to Democrats. I dont see Democrats killing people because of political yeah, there may be democratic operatives who are out there.
Well they tried to, Shields interjected.
Okay, fine, they tried to, and thats not right, he said. But for the most part, what do you see here, Mike? You see these extreme right-wingers.
Bill Ayers, lifelong Republican.
Don is just painting the narrative to justify his dream of genocide.
Let’s be honest about what his goals are shall we?
When you are careful about where you look, you see what you want to see and nothing else.
has he taken a poll in Chicago to see what was the motive in all of their killings?
correction “ I wont REPORT democrats
One guy who’s really nice car is getting beat up panics and floors it, killing a woman. Lemon makes that the right wing killing people.
What makes him right wing, anyway?
didnt some die last week. yep.
I guess that Arkancide does not fit into the equation here.
Lemon is a hysterical fag. He needs his attitude adjusted.
Why do they keep referring to pipe “bombs”????
None of the packages were “bombs”...
This guy’s a real piece of work. In a sane world, he and most everyone else at that insane network that claims to report the news would be in unemployment lines looking for work.
Don Lemon is a PUTO.
He sounds like a used car salesman pure BS.
Tens of millions of aborted American babies would disagree with you Don!
The hateful believed in private property, and the right to self defense.
You don’t get more right wing than that.
They also think they liberated themselves from slavery, last week.
Such self-deception is not a strength, and eventually it will lead to total defeat.
The animal who almost killed Scalise at the baseball practice doesnt count
