Don Lemonís devastating admission - His recent interview with Hollywood star Terry Crews was a complete and utter catastrophe for the Black Lives Matter narrative.

Major Democrat media figurehead and CNN golden goose Don Lemon’s  recent interview with Hollywood star Terry Crews was a complete and utter catastrophe for the Black Lives Matter narrative. Lemon essentially – no, not essentially, literally admitted on live television that Black Lives Matter has absolutely nothing to do with 97% of black victims of violent crime. I’ll explain why after briefly reviewing Don Lemon’s shambolic performance:

First, Lemon attempted to con his guest – an ordinary if famous black man simply wondering why yet another horrendous black body-count over an American holiday weekend didn’t arouse the slightest acknowledgement from both the BLM movement and the liberal media at large – by employing a callous bait-and-switch to obscure Terry’s meaning (transcript courtesy of Breitbart who did a wonderful job extracting the conversation amidst Don Lemon’s grating penchant to interrupt and talk over his guests):

Lemon: You think Black Lives Matter, you said you think it’s an extreme movement?”

Crews: “No, this is the thing. It’s a great mantra. It’s the true mantra. Black lives do matter. But, when you’re talking about an organization, you’re talking about the leaders…’’

Crews did well not to allow functional alcoholic and alleged casual sex offender Don Lemon to imply that anyone who questions a group calling itself “Black Lives Matter” is someone that thinks black lives don’t matter. In fact, Crews drew a devastating admission out of Lemon by refusing to take his bait. Here’s the admission:

Crews: “When you look at the city of Chicago, there are nine children who’ve died by gun violence, by Black-on-Black gun violence from June 20th all the way to today.”

Lemon: “If you want an All Black Lives Matter movement that talks about gun violence in communities, including, you know, Black communities, then start that movement with that name. But that’s not what Black Lives Matter is about. It’s not all-encompassing… the Black Lives Matter movement is about police brutality and injustice… not about what’s happening in Black neighborhoods.”

Straight from the horse’s mouth – ladies and gentlemen. Now let’s recap on the problem here:

That genuine Civil Rights is a mere guise for the BLM movement has already been well established. But it is still worth driving the point home with a closer look at the hypocrisy of what the movement chooses not to focus on as much as what it chooses to. Here we discover a salient question that no BLM supporter or affiliate has yet managed, let alone attempted, to answer: “Why do black lives only matter when those lives are affected by A) Police, or B) A non-black polity?” Furthermore, “why does C) Intra-racial violence (e.g. gang warfare,) and D) Intra-racial oppression (e.g. local government corruption,) never incur the interest, let alone the wrath, of the movement?”

Don Lemon is a sex offender who has not paid his debt to society.

If you say “All Lives Matter”, they get very upset.

Why?
Well, theoretically, “All Lives Matter” is a gloss over the specific problem that Black Lives apparently don’t matter to racist white people.

But is it true that “All Black Lives Matter” to the BLM organization?
No. It is obviously not the case. They ONLY care about blacks killed by police. Last year, I believe there were 10 incidents. So, “Ten Lives Matter”.

This is just a communist plot to get rid of police and have more anarchy and misery. BLM doesn’t care about black lives at all.

Terry Crews is a breath of fresh air. He’s beholden to no one else’s narrative, he speaks his honestly held opinion, and he wants the black community to discuss the very uncomfortable truth of black on black violence.

He’s a Christian, a dedicated family man, and voice we all need to support.

We need more blacks who think logically and speak out truthfully like him in the public square.

Kudos to him and people like Candace Owens, Larry Elder, and Diamond and Silk, etc.

I dare CNN to feature more interviews with Don Lemon with black folks like these....

The blacks murdering blacks statistic is a killer for these kinds of people. That’s what Terry Crews was TRYING to say but lemon refused to allow him to get that message out.

10 incidents where the dead black person was “unarmed”. 5 of those, the now-dead person was witnessed actively fighting with the officers and involved wrestling over a weapon. of the remaining 5, in 3 of the cases, the officers were charged with crimes in the incident. So...2.

I think Dick Gregory was like that, 40 years ago. He kind of went off the rails when he got older, but when he was young he was sincere and an independent thinker.

Tucker’s piece was brilliant. The ‘cancel culture’ should be howling for Lemon’s blood and his job termination right about now but he will get a pass because he is a leftist, black and queer. That is three aces in today’s twisted society.

Isn’t Don Lemon a typical black man?

Didn’t he say he is?

Lemon: "Black Lives Matter movement is about police brutality and injustice… not about what’s happening in Black neighborhoods.”

Yet we know that intersectionality places "injustice" everywhere, in all things and at all times. Lemon is extremely racist for placing a fence around what BLM is about.

P.S.: Go President Camacho!

I read the black lives matter demands and only one of them dealt with police brutality, so Lemon’s claim that is their only concern is a complete fabrication. They also want, for blacks only, reparations, free college, no interest home loans, cancellation of all consumer debt, yada yada yada

Crews is very rare - he is an actor, not a political pundit. He and Isaiah Washington are the only prominent black actors I can think of who are willing to publicly buck the BLM narrative.
