Now Don Lemon Knows What 'Profiling' Looks Like
Hell hath no fury like entitled Leftists not getting their way 100% of the time.
Via Twitchy, here are a few of the tweets directed at CNN's Don Lemon for daring to side with Sarah Palin about Obama being accountable for what happens in his own administration:
-- If you think the Right will make you their Pet Gay, they won't.
-- Obama is standing up 4 U & don't forget who you are.
-- @donlemoncnn is a real CNN Tool L. I went off on him yesterday & he never responded?
-- @donlemoncnn He's a black gay man and a RW tool for a buck. His boyfriend is a CNN higher up too.
Nasty, cruel stuff.
Lemon's "crime" occurred during his "No Talking Points" segment. All Lemon suggested, essentially, was that Obama should take responsibility for what happens during his watch. But if Obama's going to get re-elected, the Left knows the media must be completely on their side. They're nervous and, as we see here, ready to lash out at any perceived apostasy.
Lemon steps off the left-wing reservation once and gets excoriated. But that's how the Left operates to keep people in line, and if it were conservatives hitting Lemon with attacks on his sexuality and race, you can bet Obama shills like Politico's Dylan Byers would be all over the story.
Lemon and I sparred a little last week over his baseless accusation that the Right (and presumably me) had no valid reason to criticize him for media bias. On the air, he floated the outrageous charge that our motives were based on our profiling of him, including racial profiling.
I'm not happy that these horrible people sent these awful tweets, but maybe some good can come from it now that Lemon sees what profiling actually looks like. Based only on skin color and sexuality, these bullying leftists expect Lemon to think, vote, and direct his loyalties in their direction -- and when he doesn't, they accuse him, in so many ugly words, of being a sell-out.
That's not only profiling; it's profiling on steroids.
