On Wednesday, CNN News Anchor Don Lemon said that everyone who voted for President Trump in November general election should be aware that they belong to a group of people such as members of the Ku Klux Klan, Nazis, and alt-right supporters.
Lemon stressed that those who voted for President Trump must bear in mind that they voted for the person who encouraged the mob to storm the U.S. Capitol and potentially kill the U.S. lawmakers.
He added that the President’s voters support a person who incited violence in which innocent lives were lost.
Lemon offended 70 million Americans
After his colleague Chris Cuomo reasonably suggested that not all of the more than 70 million Trump voters are the same, Lemon had the comeback ready.
He tried to explain that everyone who voted for President Trump put themselves in a crowd with the people of common interests.
Those interests, according to Lemon, are the same interests of the Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan, since that is “how the political affiliation works”.
Lemon added that there is no excuse for people who voted for someone who exhibits the worst kind of behavior and hold ‘those beliefs’, trying to say that President Trump holds the same beliefs as Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan.
Trump voters come from a variety of cultural, religious, and racial backgrounds
Resorting to the same logic, all Biden’s voters should be identified with those who murdered police officers, destroyed businesses, injured innocent people, and occupied police headquarters during the riots that shook America last year.
However, that would be unjustified.
Furthermore, it would be interesting to see how Lemon would explain why a large number of minorities, such as Jewish-Americans, African-Americans, and Latinos voted for President Trump.
Is it fair to identify them with the members of the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazi Party who persecuted them?
This is not the first time Don Lemon took part in the denigration of Trump supporters.
Just weeks ago, he said that President Trump’s voters should be dismissed as those who “believe bull**”.
Last October, he compared Trump voters to drug addicts, whereas in August he accused them of suffering from cognitive dissonance.
Especially striking was when, a year ago, he laughed boisterously when some of his guests described Trump supporters as illiterate “credulous rubes”.
