    Black Leadership Group: CNN Must Put Own House In Order

    Black Leadership Group: CNN Must Put Own House In Order After Don Lemon Said White Men Are USs Biggest Terror Threat

    Project 21, a black leadership network, issued a statement Thursday calling on CNN President Jeff Zucker to address host Don Lemons inflammatory comments calling white men the biggest terror threat in America.

    The statement, from Project 21 co-chairs Stacy Washington, Horace Cooper, and Bishop Council Nedd II, reads:

    Within a space of five seconds, CNNs Don Lemon went from saying we shouldnt demonize people to broadly labeling white men as our nations biggest terror threat. Thats not responsible journalism. This cannot stand. CNN President Jeff Zucker recently called out the White House for its criticism of the media, saying President Trump doesnt comprehend the importance of the words he uses. Its time for Zucker to put his own house in order starting with explaining how Don Lemons outrageous statement can stand in light of Zuckers call for civility.

    Project 21 is a 25-year-old black leadership network sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a free-market, independent conservative think-tank.


    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, Lemon said on Monday during an appearance on Chris Cuomo Primetime.


    There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on they had the Muslim ban, there is no white guy ban. What do we do about that? Lemon continued.

    Conscientiously believing that the proper condition of the negro is slavery, or a complete subjection to the white man, and entertaining the belief that the day is not distant when the old Union will be restored with slavery nationally declared to be the proper condition of all of African descent, and in view of the future harmony and progress of all the States of America, I have been induced to issue this address, so that there may be no misunderstanding in the future

    The Green New Deal is the Fyre Festival of legislative proposals. Everyone spends all their money on what's promised to be an amazing destination only to get there and find yourself sleeping in a tent and selling your soul for a bottle of Evian.

    What he said was factually correct. Any sense that he is broadly calling all white men terrorists is just silly and counter to the facts and his actual words.

    I suppose it's good evidence for the power of propaganda.
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."
    - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American social activist and First Lady of the United States

    No, actually you are saying that. It's nice to know what is on your mind.

    Implying that he meant all white men is the talking point social cons need to have, it's no different than co opting the kaepernick protest and make it about denigrating the flag, veterans, and America.

    Just like saving 15% by switching to Geico, it's what they do.
