Black Leadership Group Takes CNN’s Don Lemon to the Woodshed Over ‘White Men’ Comment

Hopefully the network will actually listen.

A black leadership network, Project 21, released a statement on Thursday asking CNN President Jeff Zucker to deal with anchor Don Lemon’s recent racist comments about white men being the “biggest terror threat” in America.

The statement was penned by Project 21 co-chairs Stacy Washington, Horace Cooper, and Bishop Council Nedd II.

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. 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. 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.

Project 21 is a 25-year-old black leadership network sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a “free-market, independent conservative think-tank.”

“So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” Lemon said on Monday during an appearance on “Chris Cuomo Primetime.”

“There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on… they had the Muslim ban, there is no white guy ban. What do we do about that?” Lemon continued.

Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson also slammed Lemon for his egregious comments during an appearance he made on “Fox & Friends.”

“You know, we have a history of dividing people into different segments and that has caused a lot of problems in the past,” said Carson. “And we’ve paid big prices for that. But let’s don’t (sic) sweep it under the rug. Let’s acknowledge it, but let’s learn from it and move in a positive direction, not a negative direction.”

Rather than learning from his mistakes and admitting that he was wrong for what he said, Lemon has decided to double down on his comments, citing some stats about murders being committed by far-right extremists to support his opinion.

CNN Medical Analyst Wants To Cancel Christmas: ‘We Just Can’t Do It This Year’

Well, it seems the radical left in this country, especially the folks who work for mainstream media outlets, are just chomping at the bit to ruin the holidays for everyone, which isn’t all that surprising given how much they seem to hate the reason for the season in the first place. CNN medical analyst, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, appeared on the network where he said that “we just can’t do” Christmas “this year” because of the coronavirus. “So the next big holiday is obviously the Christmas, New Year’s holiday where people tend to travel, want to travel, want to be with family, but we just can’t do it this year. We’re going to cause needless deaths and particularly that’s among people we really care about, you know, our most vulnerable, our grandparents, our parents, our neighbors,” the doctor said. “We can’t travel this year. We need to stay home. This is a sacrifice that Americans can make and we should be making it for each other. Stay home, mask up, we’ll have a great series of holidays next year. We’ll really have something to celebrate next year,” Reiner stated. via Daily Wire: Reiner also said anyone who traveled for Thanksgiving “should be quarantining.” “They should be quarantining for probably seven to 10 days and then getting tested. That’s what they should do. If they just go back to what they were doing — going back to work, they are going to spread the virus. So much of this virus is spread by asymptomatic folks. So stay home for more than a week, get tested, then go back to work,” he said. “This virus is, you know, no longer isolated to certain enclaves in the United States. It’s all over the country. And when people travel from place to place, they just…

Moderna Files For Emergency Approval For New Coronavirus Vaccine

Published

on

Moderna released a statement on Monday saying they are going to ask the Food and Drug Administration to give emergency approval to its new experimental COVID-19 vaccine. This makes Moderna the second company to file this request, following hot on the heels of Pfizer who filed their application earlier in the month. Moderna stated that new data shows their vaccine as being 94.1 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 infection. Pfizer’s effective rate was 95 percent. via Daily Wire: “We believe that our vaccine will provide a new and powerful tool that may change the course of this pandemic and help prevent severe disease, hospitalizations and death,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement. Bancel said last week that 20 million doses will be available by the end of the year. The FDA’s vaccine advisory committee is set to meet Dec. 17 to review data from the two companies. Pfizer said on Nov. 9 that its developmental vaccine for COVID-19 may be 90% effective at inoculating people against the disease. The rate of effectiveness was calculated by analyzing early data from 94 trial participants in a study involving 43,538 subjects from all over the world. The small early sample means that the protection rate could change by the time the study ends and all the participants are accounted for, according to the AP. One of the major differences between the two vaccines is that the one being produced by Moderna does not need to be put in sub-zero storage, while Pfizer’s does. This makes the Moderna vaccine much easier to distribute. A third vaccine is also in the works from AstraZeneca and Oxford University. This particular vaccine is said to be 90 percent effective. Guess now we’re just playing the waiting game to see which of these companies gets approved first. They…
