Don Lemon stunned the world or at least those living in America when he went on live TV and said white men are the biggest terror threats we face. It was laughable on so many levels it is hard to know where to start.
Let’s just say there are lunatics that live among us and their skin color has nothing to do with it. Some people are just troubled but contrast that with our enemies in some hostile parts of the world, the kind Former US Navy SEAL, Ephraim Mattos knows all too well, and you get a reality Lemon won’t admit.
Not only did Mottos fight against the Taliban and ISIS but after he finished serving he volunteered to go back and help civilians who were stuck inside those war zones. Talk about a hero and yes his actions do afford him the right to be heard on this sensitive topic and what he has to say about CNN and Don Lemon needs to be shouted from the mountaintops. He wrote:
“After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars, mine-fields, suicide bombers and laying down my life for the cause of freedom while fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with my brother Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Animists, and Atheists, I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrorist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.
I represent just one of the hundreds of thousands of conservative white men who have fought to preserve freedom in this great Nation and in other nations. My forefathers are the 3% who founded this Republic against the might of the British Army. It was white Conservative men who died by the tens of thousands after charging into our southern states to free our black brothers from the slavery imposed on them by the Liberal left. We were the ones who acknowledged that women have a right to vote. We held the line in WWI and charged the beaches of Normandy in WWII. We have fought for freedom and liberty for generations and we continue to do so today alongside all of our brothers and sisters regardless of their race or religion.
In the early 1930s, Hitler said the same thing about the Jews that Don Lemon of CNN just said about white men. This is the true face of the Democratic Party. First they enslaved and killed blacks, and now they use them to spew hatred and lies against the very people who have fought for generations to free them and uplift them.
Remember that when you go to vote.
One final thought: To make a point, I have referred to myself as a “white male” in the previous sentences multiple times, but I must make it clear that I identify as simply “American,” not as “white” or “male” or “Republican.”
Although blatantly racist and hateful, do not let Don Lemon’s ignorant words drive you into viewing yourself only by your race and religion. Identity politics does not lead to freedom. It only leads to hatred and division and an “us vs. them” mentality. If CNN does not fire Don Lemon immediately, it only goes to show that they are truly the “enemy of the people.”
