‘This Cannot Stand’: Conservative Black Activists Call Out CNN Over Don Lemon Comments

CNN has been called upon by Project 21, a black conservative activist group, to make a statement regarding the what was said by anchor Don Lemon.

Lemon stated in conversation with peer Chris Cuomo that white men were the biggest terrorist threat to the U.S. and questioned why there wasn’t a travel ban placed on them.

While many have decried the remarks, Lemon has refused to denounce them and controversially reasserted his words. So far CNN has flatly refused to discuss the issue.

The Project 21 organization is associated with the conservative group The National Center for Public Policy Research. They castigated Lemon’s remarks and request that CNN President Jeff Zucker weigh in on Lemon’s behavior.

The group made a news release writing, “Within a space of five seconds, CNN’s Don Lemon went from saying we shouldn’t demonize people to broadly labeling white men as our nation’s ‘biggest terror threat.’”

“That’s not responsible journalism,” it continues. “This cannot stand.”

“CNN President Jeff Zucker recently called out the White House for its criticism of the media, saying President Trump doesn’t comprehend the importance of the words he uses,” the statement continues. “It’s time for Zucker to put his own house in order — starting with explaining how Don Lemon’s outrageous statement can stand in light of Zucker’s call for civility.”

There has yet to be a response.

    1. Don Lemon has let is job propel him (in his mind, only) into a reporter, not a journalist(they research) and will be seeing CNN out of business. All the tv and radio reporters have declared war on Trump and Republicans. They seem to think that their reporting is the only honest reporter? ARE THESE PEOPLE THAT WORK FOR FOR BESOS, THE WEALTHIST MAN IN THE WORLD TELLING THE TRUTHS OR IS HE (DON) RESPEAKING WORDS ALREADY SAID. WE ALL KNOW HOW CORRUPT THE Democratic Party IS. AND WHY THE HELL THERE ARE 21 POSSIBLY 22 (GOOFY DEBLASIO) ENTERING THE RACE. WHY DOESN’T THE ENTIRE Democratic Party RUN. I HAVEN’T SEEN ONE (1) THAT I THINK CAN TAKE OVER TRUMP’S LEGACY. IF TRUMP DOESN’T WIN IN 2020, THE DEMS WILL ERASE “EVERYTHING” TRUMP HAS WORKED FOR! Don Lemon needs to get over that CROOKED HELL-ERY did not win! SHE IS A CRIMINAL THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN PUT IN PRISON MANY YEARS AGO.

      1. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, the GAO noted that since September 12, 2001, there have been 85 incidents of extremist terror attacks resulting in deaths in the U.S. Sixty-two of those attacks were perpetrated by white nationalist extremists, and 23 were perpetrated by Muslim extremists. That means 73 percent of fatal terrorist attacks in the last 16 years have been committed by white, Just maybe this is what he talking about, you people always find a way to blame black when it come to cops killing blacks, but turn a blind eye to the crimes committed by white at a alarming rate, Most mass shooting in the US are committed by whites,

        1. There are extreme nut cases on BOTH sides of the political “fence”. Instead of government doing what they are paid to do, an alarming increase of government employees are taking the limelight stance that it’s okay to attack others.
          It’s almost as if they are trying to instigate these radical individuals to commit these violent crimes.
          If I were a conspiracy theorist, it would be interesting to follow the money trail on whom, and where they were paid to cause disturbances.
          I bet we would all find that a lot of these violent acts were to provide “voter platforms” for upcoming politicians, or to “drive home a campaign promise thats not moving quick enough through the proper channels. Unfortunately, there are some “not so stable mental” people that will carry out what others vocalize, for either money, or political gain.
          It’s been happening for years.

    2. THE DUDE IS A FRUIT AND CUOMO FORGOT HE IS WHITE
      AND LEMON IS TANTALIZING ABOUT HIM!
      WHO CARES WHAT TH COUNTERFEITER SAYS ANY WAY!
      CNN ratings are getting so bad, Lemon’s mother is not tuning in!
      Don Lemon, Blow it out your Rear Portal!!!

    3. Why does anyone really care what Lemon says. IF EVER THERE WAS A LEMON WORKING FOR THE LIBEAL LUNITIC ZUCKER, LEMON IS THE LEMON.

  1. I no longer have any interest in the news from CNN, it has gone so negative towards the President and they forgot their are many voters who are proud of the USA.
    CNN has changed and I am a former viever.

      1. Dear proudwino
        Please don’t tear down a person to build yourself up… really there are more important things to do than spell check

  2. CNN promotes this kind of language and journalism. . I’m surprised Louis Farrakhan isn’t a reporter/ journalist for them..
    If a “white man” would make comments anywhere near this, he’d be in legal fees up to his head.. unfortunately, it is believed by so many that only the white man can be racist when all I see is the exact opposite..

    1. Kristy, I agree. That is why I no longer believe any of the mainstream media. They do not care about true facts, only their biased propaganda and gossip. I don’t listen to gossip.

  3. Laughing at that nitwit, Don Lemon. The best said about a Moron, is nothing. You can’t blame a Adam Henry for the gas he passes, there is no “brain” involved, his anus mouth opens up and emits gas and he carries the smell everywhere he goes. Zucker acts as Lemon’s sanitary pad and coddles his little insipid son, Donnie.

  4. I just saw a photo of the black Panthers displaying weapons on the streets of Atlanta. now, who is displaying threats. Black supremecists. Intimidation on full display. Antifa rioting and accosting innocent people just conducting their own business. I find the msm is irresponsible and stirs up the hate with comments by lemon.

  5. Don Lemon, is a Gay Black, Racist, Black Lives Matters dumb assholes CNN Bully’s. CNN MSNBC are Low Life’s COMMUNISTS FAKE NEWS ARE THEIR FAKE NEWS. BEFORE I WATCH CCN, OR MSMBC,,, SATAN WILL SELLING ICE CUBES FOR A DOLLAR IN HELL

  6. I have an article saved by a former CNN newsreader that says the they’re paid by Governments to make such outrageous statements. She states that different governments pay them not to publish certain information that they discover in foreign countries. George Soros owns 75percent of all American media.

  7. The man is vile and needs to be removed from television and all other communication, as he is as close to be a terrorist himself. I am truly sick of listening and reading about, these socialist communist people. They have al intentions of removing our rights and freedoms under our Constitution and placing America under a one world government. Not as long as I live, will not set back and let these evil minded, take over and ruined our great country. The way to stop them is ti vote on the 6th. of November and cast out all of the socialist communist from our government. Conservatism is the only way to keep America free.

  8. I think Dom Lemon is a true idiot who has no character and a person of hate bigotry and bias and one we would an “UNCLE TOM”; who played on there own people for their benefit and especially those who were mixed like Lemon is, AMEN!!!
    What he called brother Kanye West was aplorable and he should be ashamed of himself, AMEN!!!

  9. Who still watches that Biased asshole? I sure am not , turned off CNN completely. Only watch Fox news for more
    accurate news. Hope Trump wins, best president I have seen in my lifetime. We need all the troops we can send
    to the border, Tromp is making all the right moves. I am hoping for a big red wave to show the Dems are on the wrong tack, and denounce the extremist Left ideology.
    I am a legal immigrant and I sure don’t like the illegals referred to as immigrants they are not they are illegals
    they need to be stopped and deported promptly if they get through.

  10. CNN AND DON LEMON are like dirty diapers, the smell is pungent. CNN is not news its a leftist bunch of idiots attempting to block the any actual news as they continue as a political left wing group attempting to masquerade as if they are in the news business. Anyone with half a brain can see the blatant political agenda they put forth every second. I heard of the rats at CNN and Lemon both sour, disgusting examples of what liar’s and politicians they are all about nothing else can possibly describe something like CNN their already baked and ready to serve and deceive any fool who watches them for more a second. Enough folks move on!

  11. With a great eye and taste for delineation, you can create an atmosphere impeccable for any exercises linked to feasting room.
    in April 22, 1560, he was quoted saying:” Your Majesty, you’re invincible and contain the world in awe. The art gallery also serves enormous events from all areas of the globe.

  12. Leonardo lived in the own measured rhythm, and constantly cared about the quality of his paintings completely ignoring time it takes to accomplish the task.
    in April 22, 1560, he explained:” Your Majesty, you’re invincible and support the world in awe. It is maybe one of the most worldwide of mediums, in its practice and in its range.

  13. Thats guy Lemon is more racist than KKK. His should got out of the press for goodness. He is to extremist and intolerant. Has no professional background. Is a pure disgraceful for American blacks.

  14. Hey hey ho ho come on now Lemon has got to go!
    I am not a racist but come on, there’s no way a great white man would be allowed to say that about blacks. Some people, black and white, never are willing to even open their mouth without screaming racism or been mistreated . Time for America to rise up from the pits of racism and finally move forward.

  15. CNN is run by a bunch of hypocrites. The reporters are a bunch of hypocrites. They spread lies, and leave out words people say to change the whole meaning of what they said. Nothing new to report here.

  16. Deep State traitors are everywhere!The evil corrupted liberal demoncrat Commie Nazi’s party at work here!Don’t forget the RINOs(Grahams,Romney,Gowdy,Ryan, Rubio, Sessions, Collins, Flake, Haley)they’re just as bad! Drain the rat infested Swamp,Pres Trump!

  17. He is one dumb-A$$ NI&&ER, an over-paid, under-minded, underhanded shill for the Godless, Satan worshiping, power-mad, NWO-elitist ghouls which are comprised of mostly Democ-rats and RINO’S that carries out his marching orders with a zealousness! REVOLUTION will be the needed SOLUTION; politics as usual is done as the bereft Left is deliberately seeking a civil and racial war as all totalitarian regimes must do to wrest power away from the dumb-(m)asses and into their greedy, vile, licentious, murdering hands! WTFU!

  18. This man is nothing more than a moron being used to spit out hate and Anti-Trump crap. He doesn’t have an original thought in his head. All the MSM STATIONS are so ANTI-AMERICAN that every news person will not stand up and deny the prewritten words that their handlers stick in their hands to read like puppets. They would rather spit out propaganda to destroy this country than be a REAL JOURNALIST AND REPORT TRUTHFUL NEWS. THE PERMANENT FIXED SCOWLS ON SOME OF THEM TELLS ME THE HATE COMING OUT HAS DAMAGED THEIR SOULS KNOWING WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS WRONG AND THEY HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS TO THE DEVILS IN THE TOP OFFICES. IS IT WORTH IT MSM NEWS PEOPLE??? IS IT THAT IMPORTANT TO DESTROY YOUR LIFE FOR A BIG PAYCHECK??????

  19. DON LEAAMOAAN
    I CALL IT LEMON LIKE THE YELLOW FRUIT
    IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT…WAITE TILL A BUNCH OF LILLY WHITE MEN WHO HELD HIS FAMILY ON THE PLANTATION GET A HOLD OF HIM
    EVEN THE GOOD BLACKS KNOW HE’S JUST SCUM

  20. With people like Lemon and the News .it’s no wonder there is so much hate. Como is no better these talking heads promote hate 24.7. T.D.S. is truly at home at CNN and the main stream media.

  21. CNN = Clinton News Network. They stopped being a credible news network the day Obama/Clinton started running for POTUS. Skin color means everything to Don Lemon. Dom could be the biggest racist in the country and a well spoken one. His clean demur and boy like features makes people want to believe him BUT he is the worst on TV in the last 10 years as news anchors apply. Don is an imbecile that knows no better.

  22. So… the recent Colorado shooting featured s GIRL shooter who’s trying to turn into a guy. Another GIRL mass murderer-wannabe shot and killed herself on the way to Colorado. I think the other Colorado shooter was a black man. HEY, DON LEMON, WHERE ARE YOUR SNIDE COMNENTS NOW!?

  23. Many Afro Americans after hearing this guy just lower thier head and shake it. Foos like this is the biggest problem we have dividing this country. If a white man stood up and said this, there would be riots in the streets. Shut this fool up..
    .Now

  24. Waitaminit…is this the SAME Don Lemon who is ingesting the semen, urine, smegma and feces of his “lover”?? I don’t get it. What am I missing here?

  25. Thank you Project 21 for calling out CNN for irresponsible comments made on their network by “journalists” and I use that term losely who are so clinically insane or evil!

  26. So, apparently on CNN you can accuse your Boss of being a terrorist and Jeff Zucker said what terrorist will not only defend you but point his apparently racist finger at other white men in the white house. WTG Lemmon, your ilk has succeeded in brainwashing even those you work for or at least intimidating them to the point they will not say a word, let along give you the pink slip you deserve.
    Unbelievable what some people will accept in their desperation to be accepted and validated as virtuous PC followers. I’m sure Zucker’s white terrorist father would be so proud!

  27. Don Lemon has always had a chip on his shoulder. I would take this with a grain of salt…I don’t watch him anymore! Margaret

  28. Jesus can give Don a whole new lease of life, which will revolutionise his walk, talk and eternal destiny. Yes, Don, try Jesus!

  29. Lemon might as well join the Circus Car that is the rollicking band of Democratic hopefuls for the Presidency. The more on the Bus of Buffoons, the better. What an assortment of goofballs. Lemon will fit in well.

  30. Lemon comes on as a not very bright talking head. He uses the convenient moral tool of being black and and member of a protected group to spew his liberal biased news. Now, he has pointed his finger at “racist white men” as the worst terrorist group in the country. If it were not for the so called “racist white men” and affirmative action he would not have a pot to piss in.

  31. LEMON , THE MEMBER OF THE AC-DC CLUB. IT APPEARS THAT HE IS LOOKING TO DUMP HIS BOY FRIEND AND HE MUST BE LOOKING FOR THAT LONG KISS FROM CUMO WHEN THEY WERE BOTH KISSING. THIS GUY NAMED DON LEMON, WON’T BE ABLE TO MAKE LEMONADE, THE SOURNESS OF HIS MIND PREVENTS HIM FROM DOING THAT. YOUR RACIST REMARKS SHOW JUST WHO ARE THE RACIST IN AMERICA! IT WON’T BE LONG FOR CNN TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS, LEMON WILL BE THE FIRST TO GO!

  32. also he is Black and what can you expect from a Black man racial comments to the extreme\at least whites dont burn and loot their own neighborhoods the blacks always do that when they riot over some imagined slit

  33. LEMON IS EXACTLY THAT …… “A LEMON”!!!!!!!!!!!!
    NEEDS TO BE “FIRED” YESTERDAY AND RESTRICTED TO EVER ANNOUNCING OR HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH PUBLIC JOURNALISM VIA THE MEDIA …………………PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. Zucker is a classical hypocrite who’s lost control of the other hypocrites in his organization. These are the same people who have seen the events from their blurred, if not blind vision for years. Fortunately, the American people are seeing right through them evidenced by their miserable ratings . With the other groups, i.e., democrats they think their amateurish methods can fool the American people who already praise Trump’s numerous accomplishments. So, once again, they are in for the same rude awakening in 2016 that put Trump in the White House. They just don’t know it yet. any more than they can remember the power of the SILENT MAJORITY.
