Most of CNN’s anchors are awful. However, none are more dishonest, hateful, and despicable than Don Lemon. So it is not a surprise that Lemon would trivialize the Holocaust, by comparing the pro-Jewish President Trump to Hitler. Under Jeff Zucker (who is Jewish) CNN is America’s most anti-Semitic and anti-Israel news network, which says a-lot given the stiff competition for this title. The good news is that few are watching.
CNN’s Don Lemon Says Trump Could Become Like Hitler: “It Starts With Little Lies”
By: Time Hains, Real Clear Politics, April 19, 2019:
CNN hosts Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo debated Tuesday evening whether it is fair to compare President Trump to Adolf Hitler:
“It starts with little lies that become bigger lies,” Lemon argued. “Well, just saying. Be careful.”
DON LEMON, CNN HOST: But think about the despicable people we’ve had in history. OK? Now I’m going to use an extreme example. Think about Hitler. Think about any of those people. Would you say that that person is allowed — or let’s put it this way?
If you could look back on in history would you say well, I’m so glad that that person was allowed a platform so that they could spread their hate and propaganda and lies? Or would say it probably wasn’t the right thing to do to spread that because you knew in the moment that that was a bad person. And they were doing bad things. Not only were they hurting people. They were killing people. And so, I just think that —
CUOMO: Well, I think that the example matters. And that’s a very extreme example, rhetoric that you don’t like.
LEMON: But laws rhetoric and laws —
CUOMO: Could it be a slippery slope towards violence?
LEMON: — and policy are detrimental to people.
CUOMO: Maybe or maybe not.
LEMON: And it also — and it also — listen, for people like me, how this president feels about the Central Park Five that can be a life or death issue for people like me. That can be especially a life or death issue for those people who spent decades, a decade, some of them, or more in prison. They didn’t have a life.
He took a big part of their life away. People like him who believed it and who wanted it to be true took a part of their lives away.
[22:04:57] And people — and for — you know, demonizing immigrants and talking about shit hole countries and saying that there are very fine people on both sides. For people of color in this country it is a life or death issue.
Ask Mrs. Heyer, Heather Heyer’s mother who I had on. That is a life or death issue. So, you know, I’m just saying we just need to be careful about having this is a standard rule. This is not standard. This is not normal.
CUOMO: I don’t think that it’s standard.
