CNN's Don Lemon is the king of simplicity. Watch this exchange with Chris Cuomo.
Remember when President-elect Joe Biden eulogized former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd? Byrd recruited people to join the actual KKK.
In her book, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, Michelle Alexander argues the war on drugs is the modern version of discriminatory Jim Crow laws that 'legally' separated Blacks from whites. Millions of Black people have been subject to the criminal justice system because of laws championed by Joe Biden.
Additionally, Biden once bragged about receiving an award from notorious racist George Wallace. The former Democrat Governor of Alabama said in his 1963 inaugural address, 'segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.' As National Review wrote:
It was Biden who bragged that in 1973 Wallace considered him “one of the outstanding young politicians of America.” It was Biden who wrote in 1975 that the “Democratic Party could stand a liberal George Wallace.” It was Biden who in 1981tolda black witness in the Senate that “sometimes even George Wallace is right.” It was Biden who, while campaigning for the presidency in Alabama in 1987, claimed that he’d been the recipient of an award from Wallace in 1973 (it probably wasn’t true; but what a thing to brag about!), and then boasted that Delaware was “on the South’s side in the Civil War.”
Lemon is pretending none of this happened. Lemon is pretending Biden isn't responsible for putting millions of disenfranchised minorities in jail and on probation. Lemon is once again pretending to have some sort of moral high ground. Instead, he and the rest of CNN are lying to further divide America. So much for healing.
