CNN anchor “Dandy” Don Lemon blasted leading Republicans recently for commemorating civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. while supporting "racist" President Donald Trump.
During the January 18th edition of "CNN Tonight with Don Lemon," the anchor suggested that Trump allies and supporters — including Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) are hypocrites for sharing tweets honoring the late King.
Why was Lemon upset that Republicans were praising King? Let him tell you why. Lemon blathered: "Those Republicans like Mike Pence, putting out 50 tweets quoting Dr. King's words, can you believe it? Like Mitch McConnell, who supported the president whose actions go against everything Dr. King stood for. Like Lindsey Graham, who allegedly called Georgia election officials to get them to throw out legal votes, including large numbers from black voters. Ted Cruz, who even after the riot on Capitol Hill, still voted against certifying the Electoral College vote. One Republican after another apparently hoping that you'll forget their support for a president who used race to pit Americans against each other. Donald Trump created an environment where white supremacists and conspiracy theorists overran the Capitol of the United States of America. He used race to divide us from the very beginning. All of that is the opposite of what Dr. King stood for, what he died for, more than 50 years ago."
Who is a bleeping hypocrite for praising King? Who goes against everything he stood for? Who spent his entire presidency trying to divide us based on skin color? Democrats entire playbook is based on identity politics. They have done everything in their power to destabilize, fragment and atomize society. They don’t see Americans-- they see gays, lesbians, transgenders, peoples of color, Muslims, the homeless (that they created), agnostic transvestite abortion-rights activists, and so on…and so on…out of one, many.
It is “progressives” like Lemon that disdain and despise King’s assertion that it is the content of one’s character that matters, not the color of one’s skin. That is inarguable. They cheer on the burning and looting of cities by BLM and Antifa members and bail them out of jail as necessary. They encourage drag queens to read to young children in schools and churches. They believe kids as young as five or six should be allowed to distort and defile their bodies in order to “change” their gender. They are ardent proponents of abortion. They believe the ends justify the means, whatever the means may be.
Lemon and his ilk are not only hypocrites, they distort and defile King’s message, perversely flipping it 180 degrees, while claiming to idolize him. They are charlatans. King was a master of language, they are masters of deceit.
If Dr. King was alive today, he would likely consider himself a Republican. But that doesn’t really matter. What matters is that he would not think highly of true race baiters like Lemon. Because he spoke the truth: it is the content of one’s character that matters, not the color of one’s skin.
