Skip to comments.CNN's Don Lemon defends removal of statues: People were taught 'propaganda' about American history

CNN anchor Don Lemon weighed in on the recent wave of toppled statues and suggested that Americans were taught "propaganda" about the nation's history.
During Monday's nightly handoff with colleague Chris Cuomo, Lemon accused the president of "putting himself in a position" where he is "defending racist, treasonous people" over his support of Confederate statues and his recent tweet suggesting NASCAR made a mistake by banning Confederate flags.
Lemon then defended the recent onslaught of statues that have destroyed by rioters of non-Confederates like Ulysses S. Grant and George Washington, saying "movements are often messy" and how young people "have asked for decades" for the removal of certain statues and now "the chickens are coming home to roost."

He’s not wrong. The people removing the statues were taught propaganda.
LeMon, which is short for “sour puss”, is the stupidest person on CNN and he has a lot of competition for that position.
Also, he’s a hateful, spiteful little shit who would be pushing papers somewhere if it weren’t for affirmative action because he is a talentless, leftist, racist shill for CNN.
And he knows this how? Give an example. They never can and never do, because the entire narrative we hear from BLM, is a fraud, based on revisionist history, and not even very well written.
People were taught ‘propaganda’ about American history
I recall some talking newshead complaining that they (news channels) were the ones who were supposed to tell us what to think (she felt robbed).
I wonder what the 5 people watching thought.
With the atrocious schooling I was given in high school, I’m glad my grandfather left behind all of his books about history when he passed; especially those about American history. The older they are, the closer they are to the documented events, and are at least somewhat likely to be more accurate.
That and there used to be literary standards. Most of my books are from 1960 and earlier. The earliest is so old it has no printed date.
Ya know what? If these so called protesters don’t like America LEAVE!!!! PACK YOUR BAGS AND LEAVE>> WE WILL GIVE YOU ALL A ONE WAY TICKET. WE HAVE ONE THING YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP YOUR CITIZENSHIP AND NEVER RETURN..WE DON’T WANT YOU HERE IF IT MAKES YOU SO UNHAPPY!!!
CNN ratings are not bad enough already.
So let’s allow Don Lemon to wildly rant justifying the trashing of public monuments and the national heritage because that will surely bring the audience you are insulting rushing back to the channel. Not.
CNN probably has the same situation with their black news talent that the Democrat party has with BLM and AntiFa. They are tied too closely to them, they know the activists are out of control but they cannot sideline or dismiss them without losing the support of what remains of their base.
It is a hell of a situation for management to be in. I don’t feel even a bit of sympathy for them. They made this bed when they stopped being a news organization. Now let them lie there while it burns down around them.
saying “movements are often messy”
He has absolutely no idea how messy things can get.
Yes. Stalinazi propaganda. What you spew every night, punk.
He loves to plunge his little manhood deep into messy movements.
They made this bed when they stopped being a news organization. Now let them lie there while it burns down around them.
Except its not going to burn. Oh theyll push out the current management. They aint woke enough.
And then the real crazies will be in charge.
Don Lemon is not a brain surgeon. He ought to learn how to think critically instead of just react.
Dude you are missing the point of the Confederate statues
They are about reconciliation and coming together under one flag, one nation, as one people.
“With Malice Toward None and Charity(Love) for All”
These men fought each other over ideas and once it was over walked across battlefields to shake each other’s hands and hug it out.
They then worked toward making a better America together
You are a very small and petty person with a certain conceit that enables you to shade the history of what went on and why each side venerated each other.
It’s OK. Let them keep pandering to the far left.
I’m hearing locally long-time common sense Dems are fed up and looking at Trump. And it’s going to happen more and more.
Regarding high school history. Many times the history books were devoid of factual information. The Barbary Pirate nations were never associated with Islam. They never told us about the Astecs and the human sacrifice death religion. The Japanese and the Korean women who were forced to be sex workers. The Carib Indians and the eating of newly born babies. The history books were just about sanitized into uselessness. I guess they did not want to offend the kids with the real truth about the Human Race.
Of course the faggot Don Lemon would be happy destroying America. It’s what his pResident was doing. Birds of a feather.
But they have no hesitation to put how “racist”, “sexist”, “xenophobic”, “homophobic”, “transphobic”, “islamophobic”, “capitalist” (as a pejorative), and all other garbage about our country is hopelessly evil and inferior to all others.
