CNN's Don Lemon On Gun Control: Should We Start Profiling White Men?
RCP ^ | 12/23/2012

Posted on 12/23/2012 8:14:57 AM PST by Altura Ct.

CNN's Don Lemon discusses the possibility of profiling white men in an attempt to prevent gun violence and decrease the amount of mass shootings. Lemon argues that white males between the ages of 18 and 25 were behind nearly all recent mass killings.

On the panel: David Sirota, radio talk show host; Richard Moran, criminologist; Lou Palumbo, retired police detective and private security provider; and Tom Deets, gun store owner.

Maybe we should start polling the Crips and the Bloods while we’re at it.

But THAT would be racist.

I think that it’s time we did a little profiling of our own.

Let’s compare the number of murders by blacks and whites ages 18-25. Don’t forget to divide the number of murders by whites by five, since there are 5 whites for every black.

Were the 9-11 terrorists white? What about John Doe #2 and #3 in the OKC bombing? Was the killer at Ft. Hood white? Are all all of the terror plots hatched by the white?

Don, Perhaps you could employ that 80 IQ of yours to recognize that anti-psychotic drugs are a better predictor of sociopathic behavior, than the “white male” element.

Absolutely we should profile white men who show tendencies of murderous insanity.

Only folks who scream racism at every little perceived slight are afraid of profiling.

When the SHTF and these people are sold into slavery, sexual and otherwise by the feral libs who will quickly take control of the cities they live in during the immediate aftermath, I am going to open my first beer in a LONG time, sit back and laugh until I puke.

That’s all I really have to say on it.

“Absolutely we should profile white men who show tendencies of murderous insanity.”

Which would be fine. But that’s not what they will profile white men for.

There is a profile that is emerging from these mass shooters. But it’s politically incorrect to even whisper truth now. Nevertheless, the libs should start looking in the mirror.

In his memoir, Transparent, released in May 2011, Lemon acknowledges publicly that he is gay and discusses colorism in the black community, racism, homophobia, and the sexual abuse that he suffered as a child.

CNN’s ‘Objective’ Don Lemon Appeared at Two Events Featuring Sebelius, Received ‘Visibility’ Award at Pro-Gay Gala
By Matt Hadro | March 20, 2012 | 17:31

If you were wondering about CNN’s objectivity on liberal issues like gay rights, the lines became a whole lot more blurred recently as anchor Don Lemon received a “Visibility” award from the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign at its North Carolina gala, where Obama’s HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius spoke and stumped for the President’s re-election.

Then on Friday, Sebelius addressed middle school students at an anti-bullying event where Lemon served as the moderator of an anti-bullying panel. His appearances at events with an Obama cabinet member blur the lines of objectivity and his receiving an award from a gay-rights organization makes his liberal bias all the clearer.

Four hundred dead in Chicago so far this year. I wonder if there will be a Christmas Eve/Christmas Day shooting(s) over giving someone the wrong gift. Or just going off because of the Season.

Liberalism on parade, racists of the worst kind. The continued slaughter of alive unborn black children is ignored, the continuing slaughter of blacks, by blacks in the hood, and these liberal vermin want to discuss profiling crazy white boys. I wonder, if these vermin get their way and white young men are profiled, would these same racists elitist liberals then try to stop the slaughter among blacks by profiling drug addled raging black youths or address the wholesale slaughter of alive black children in the wombs of black females? ... I didn’t think so, and that’s why these are the worst kind of racists, using the elitist ignore button to de-populate the black communities.

Ya, I think it’s racist to profile black or other minority group youth gangs.

In fact, I thought liberals hated profiling in the first place, because it is racist or sexist or bigoted to look closely at members of certain groups who do certain things.

As tragic and evil as events such as school shootings are, the ongoing youth gang violence in our cities, in which minority gangs have laid waste to vast areas of our major cities, is virtually unreported in the MSM. Many more are victimized by gang violence than mass shootings. But we’re not allowed to talk about that because it would be racist.

prevent gun violence and decrease the amount of mass shootings.

So what exactly is the current amount as a percentage of total crime? Do mass shootings include driveby shootings in the hood?

I think its high time the cities took solid measures to protect themselves from rabid bitter clingers in flyover country.

They must raise high walls around their cities to prevent access in or out so they can live in peaceful harmony as we bitter clinger gun each other down. In a few yeas we’ll all be dead and they can knock down the walls and have the country back. Honest, they can.

When you have such ‘GREAT’ reasons as, Changing the channel on a TV, who sits in the front seat or back, who gets the big piece of chicken, etc, it appears that not much of any reason in needed for these reprobates to swing into action.

” . . .anti-psychotic drugs are a better predictor of sociopathic behavior, than the “white male” element.”

Libs love to point to the studies that show that people with serious mental disorders are no more likely to commit violent crimes than people in the general population.

What they don’t tell you is that those “studies” had, as exclusionary criteria, one or more of three factors: history of violence; drug and alcohol use: non-compliance with psychiatric meds. Add those folks back in - and they are a LARGE part of the hard-core mentally ill population - and the likelihood skyrockets past the non-ill population.

Start? It’s been going on at least since the DC sniper shootings. “Lone wolf” white male in a white van. Chief Moose, a black man, clung to that profile because it fit his biases and his thickheadedness allowed more people to die.

Turns out it was a homosexual black Muslim and his underage boytoy hiding in the trunk of an old Chevy Impala sedan.

Oops. Nice profiling there, dudes. Keep using it, you’ll eventually be right and get the predetermined result you want.

That fits perfectly with the thinking on many liberals and social engineers on the left. Mayor Coleman Young, of Detroit, once said that the only way to combat racism is to apply it in reverse - which needless to say is just another form of racism. Liberals can never understand that the ends don’t justify the means. As long as they can promote their narrative of the topic du jour.

No, mass shooting reports do not include drive by shootings in the ghetto. It is racist to report anything which reflects badly on officially aggrieved groups, such as minority youth gangs. We are supposed to be sensitive to the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow, and not be concerned about their crimes.

Not a mention of Chicago.
I'm surprised Chicago doesn't have a city worker driving around in a body truck that just scoops up the corpses found along the roadside.

The liberal cities are war zones, yet the MSM never wants to discuss those. It's always "the other guys fault."

While I do not agree with Lemon’s premise, the fact remains that the left and their lapdog media and Hollywood cohorts have systematically mocked and demonized white males for the last 50 years. The white male is the butt of jokes and stereotyped as a useless bigot. Just look at TV commercials, the white male most often appears stupid and ignorant. Is it any wonder that young white males are beginning to feel put upon and act out in sometimes violent manner?

I agree, profile those groups that need to be profiled. If white middle aged balding males 5’9” to 5’11” are committing a rash of crimes, they should be profiled first when that particular crime took place.

WHITE MALE COLLEGE STUDENTS. "Higher education" also seems to be playing a major roll in these mass killings. Yeah! let's start racially profiling whitey. Whitey isn't a "minority" yet, so they can't be "offended". sarc/

Per capita, blacks are the most murderous people on Earth. Everybody knows it. But go ahead, profile young, mentally ill white males who are known in their communities to be dangerously unstable. Most Caucasians would back it, and it might have stopped this massacre, and Loughner’s rampage, and Columbine....
