Don Lemon doubles down calling white men US’ ‘biggest terror threat.’ CNN won’t address issue.


CNN anchor Don Lemon doubled down on his Monday remarks calling white men the United States’ “biggest terror threat” on Wednesday night.

On Wednesday, Lemon said he stood by his initial remarks, despite receiving heavy backlash.

“I made some comments about that in a conversation with Chris [Cuomo],” Lemon said. “I said that the biggest terror threat in this country comes from radicals on the far right, primarily white men. That angered some people. But let’s put emotion aside and look at the cold hard facts. The evidence is overwhelming.”

“Even though more people died in attacks connected to Islamic extremists, the vast majority of deadly attacks in this country from 2001 to 2016 were carried out by far-right violent extremists,” Lemon said. “Their analysis shows that for every eight deadly attacks by right-wing extremists, there were one by left-wing extremists.

“Those are the facts,” he shrugged. “So people who were angered about what I said are missing the entire point. We don’t need to worry about people who are thousands of miles away. The biggest threats are homegrown. The facts prove that.” – READ MORE
