Crazy Lemon SCREAMS: ‘Europeans Did Not Discovered This Nation!’

Following a long-winded shouting match between CNN Prime Time host Chris Cuomo and former Senator Rick Santorum the place the later defended feedback he made in regards to the European and Judeo-Christian founding of America, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon misplaced his thoughts throughout the handoff. The irate CNNer was screaming about how Santorum was mistaken and the way, supposedly, “Europeans didn’t discovered this nation” however “it was right here” earlier than them.

“I’m respiration heavy proper now,” Lemon introduced after Cuomo completed his pompous and self-righteous handoff smearing Republicans. Huffing and puffing just like the Large Unhealthy Wolf, Lemon recounted how he was sitting in his workplace and fuming on the TV:

I used to be livid watching that interview in my workplace. I can’t imagine the primary phrases out of his mouth weren’t I’m sorry, I mentioned one thing ignorant, I must study in regards to the historical past of this nation. No contrition, did not discuss in regards to the struggling that Native People have needed to take care of on this nation.

Utterly ignoring how Santorum had acknowledged the plight of Native People and condemned it, Lemon lasted out. “Did he really assume it’s a good suggestion for him to return on tv and to attempt to whitewash the whitewash that he whitewashed,” he shouted. “I imply, it was horrible. It was horrible. And insulting and I apologize for the viewers who have been insulted by it.”

I’m sorry, it was so egregious and insulting and the whole lot that we talked about in regards to the founding of this nation,” he added earlier than dropping his ridiculous and factually fraudulent assertion:

Europeans didn’t discovered this nation. It was right here, the Native People had this nation earlier than the Europeans got here. Sure, the European conquered the nation, they colonized it. However they didn’t discovered — It had nothing to do with the founding of this nation.

 

 

To place it bluntly, what Lemon claimed was both madness or a unadorned try and rewrite historical past by the corrupted lens of vital race concept.

Sure, Native People inhabited the North American continent earlier than the arrival of Europeans, but it surely was NOT the USA of America. It was a collection of smaller tribal nations. Sure, Europeans conquered the Native People, similar to these tribes did to different tribes and different races had achieved to themselves and others. Conquest was an enormous driver of human historical past. The truth is, our species was suspected of getting pushed different clever primate species to extinction throughout our rise to the apex.

Santorum was proper to say that it was the Judeo-Christian values and enlightened pondering that helped the founders craft our present nation. That may be a reality. And people info do not imply folks from non-European backgrounds are excluded from the American expertise and the concept that all persons are created equal.

Regardless of that the info which have stood for a whole lot of years, Lemon angrily proclaimed: “I’m sorry, however that’s the reality,” then slammed his palms on his desk. Cuomo then tried to trace that Santorum, and in the end others who agreed with him, have been racist. He even advised they should be seen that why so Lemon may take care of his “ache.”

At one level, Lemon appeared to confess that he didn’t know what he was getting indignant about by way of Santorum, but it surely had one thing to do with race so he needed to be mad:

I do not know the outrage. I do not know something about this entire Rick Santorum factor. I don’t learn about that. I used to be simply sitting, watching that interview and I heard bits and items of it and after I noticed him, mentioned was he going to apologize? Trigger I knew initially what he mentioned, however I do not know something in regards to the outrage. I knew nothing about that.

As they have been nearing the tip of the handoff, Lemon lashed out at Trump supporters and claimed they’re the type of people that “imagine that America was based within the picture was white folks, and that the nation was constructed of their picture, and subsequently the election ought to go their approach.

Now, if what Santorum mentioned was so “mistaken,” “egregious and insulting,” why was he nonetheless on the CNN payroll? That is CNN.
