Don Lemon, a well known CNN host for mainstream media aficionados said on Wednesday evening that the Facebook-broadcasted torture of a gagged and bound white victim wasn’t evil and he later added that the four black suspects arrested for hate crimes had bad home training.
The news just broke early on Wednesday about four black Chicago residents accused of holding a handicapped man captive and assaulting him on racist basis, as per the video which is now viral on the internet. The victim was beaten on Facebook Live, held at knifepoint, slashed and more. All these outrageous things happened in a Chicago apartment, where assailants can be heard in the background saying “fuck Trump” and “fuck white people”.

Chicago prosecutors already filed hate crime together with other felony charges on Thursday after the alleged perpetrators posted their crimes live on Facebook for the whole world to see.
However, Don Lemon, which it happens to be a black CNN talk show host seems to think that only white people can be racist, as he declared candidly that the obvious racially charged act of torture of a white disabled man by 4 blacks “is not Evil“. One may wonder if Don Lemon is capable of discerning good from evil and also, how can a person with such a disoriented moral compass can still be a host at CNN.
Also, it would be interesting to imagine how the leftist media would have reacted if 4 white Trump supporters had sequestered and tortured a black disabled man, while screaming “fuck black people” et al. It would have been Hell to pay, right? The screams of KKK, racism, white privilege and all that would have been deafening.
Not in (still) Obama’s America, where, talking about leftist insanity, during the same discussion, Symone Sanders, also black and a former Bernie Sanders strategist said that the horrific attack/kidnapping was not a hate crime if the perpetrators were motivated by hate of Donald Trump.
“That is not a hate crime. Hate crimes are because of a person’s racial ethnicity, their religion, their gender, their disability—your political leanings, because someone doesn’t like your political leanings, they do something bad to you, that is not a hate crime.”
In the now immortal words of The Lemon, after guest Matt Lewis said that it’s evil, it’s brutality and inhuman to abuse mentally disabled people, let me quote him on that:
“I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training. I say, who is raising these young people?
I have no idea who’s raising these young people. Because no one I know on Earth who is 17 years old or 70 years old would ever think of treating another person like that. It is inhumane. And you wonder, at 18 years old, where is your parent? Where’s your guardian?”
I don’t know about those guys, but where’s your empathy and common sense Lemon?
