CNN may have just provided their most dangerous news segment to date – calling for an uptick in violent rhetoric against unvaccinated Americans.
While the majority of the country believes in freedom of choice, CNN host Don Lemon has taken it upon himself to lead the charge against those who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19.
Lemon told his audience on CNN that the time has come to publicly humiliate the unvaccinated because they are “stupid.”
Lemon said, “It’s time to start shaming them,” leading his viewers down a dangerous path similar to what was used by the Nazi’s to dehumanize the Jews in the early stages of the holocaust.
Lemon’s call for aggression came during a conversation with fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo at the beginning of “Don Lemon Tonight.”
Lemon began by saying it is “absolutely ridiculous” for Republicans to call for General Mark Milley to resign or be fired as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff after he reportedly promised to give the Chinese military advance warning of any U.S. attack and inserted himself in the nuclear chain of command.
Lemon then abruptly shifted to denouncing anyone who refused a COVID-19 vaccination.
“I think we have to stop coddling people when it comes to this and the vaccine, saying, ‘You can’t shame them. You can’t call them stupid. You can’t call them stupid.’ Yes, they are!” he said.
Lemon made clear that he believes everyone who questioned the vaccine is as “stupid” as anyone who questioned any aspect of the 2020 presidential election.
“The people who aided and abetted Trump are stupid because they believed his Big Lie. The people who are not getting vaccines — who are believing the lies on the internet instead of science — it’s time to start shaming them … or leave them behind, because they are keeping the majority of Americans behind,” he said.
Lemon went on to make the claim that the only reason Americans refuse the vaccine “is because of your politics today.” Never mind the fact that only 43% of black Americans have received at least one dose of the COVId-19 vaccine, while Republicans voters passed that threshold by July.
According to exit polls, 90% of black Americans voted for Joe Biden in 2020.
“Stop it. Stop with it the ignorance!” Lemon scolded.
He went on to say that “we have to stop saying, ‘You know, you have to listen to people.’ No, you don’t! These people are being harmful to the greater good.”
People should set aside any lingering concerns about the vaccination, Lemon averred, because “scientists and science aren’t political.”
“I accept everything you’ve just said,” Chris Cuomo responded.
Lemon has long insulted and belittled the intelligence of Republicans, especially supporters of former President Donald Trump and now he has shifted his focus to anyone who has the audacity to make their own personal health decisions rather than to simply fall in line with what the pundits and politicians are suggesting.
The increased anger towards the unvaccinated is not coming exclusively from the fake news networks specializing in spreading fear like CNN, but it is also funneling down from the top of the Democratic party.
“For the vast majority of you who have gotten vaccinated, I understand your anger at those who haven’t gotten vaccinated,” said President Joe Biden in a national address outlining his plan to fight the coronavirus last Thursday.
“And my message to unvaccinated Americans is this: What more is there to wait for?” he said. “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost all of us.”
