Don Lemon, CNN’s Token Negro

I don’t look to Rap musicians to help me inform my political views any more than I have my daughters consider their wives as models of Christian purity.  I don’t even like to use those two words in the same sentence.  “Rap” and “musician” are oxymoronic.  Kind of like “CNN” and “news.”

But I really can’t stand blatant, shameless hypocrisy, like when Hilary Clinton calls for civility in politics for example.

Back when Kanye West was proclaiming that George Bush hated black people because of the President’s response to hurricane victims, the left thought he was a great political sage, a brilliant artist.

But when a black man goes off the liberal plantation, he’s obviously mentally ill.  On a recent edition of The Wrap hosted by Don “Fruity Pebbles” Lemon, one commentator described Kanye West as an example of what happens when “Negroes can’t read.”  They become “token Negroes” whose only real worth is a photo opp for President Trump.  And, according to the panel (and official CNN policy) anyone who tends to support President Trump has mental health issues.

With this collected expertise, CNN is like watching Dr. Phil 24/7.

Then token female,Tara Setmeyer, gets all uppity:

“He’s an attention whore, like the president. He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson. He’s the token negro of the Trump administration.  This is ridiculous and no one should be taking Kanye West seriously. He clearly has issues. He’s already been hospitalized,” she continued. “Not to trivialize mental health issues, [but] obviously Kanye has taken a turn in a very strange way.”

Gee, Tara, which variety of whore are you?

Can you imagine the backlash if a panel of white guys on Fox News uttered this kind of stuff about, say, President Obama and some goofy policy he advocated!  I know, target rich environment, right?

When libs talk about tolerance, or free speech, or civil exchange of ideas, or whatever the phrase of the day is, all they really mean is that you’re free to agree with them.  Otherwise you’re mentally ill.

Hypocrites.  Damned hypocrites.

I just can’t help but wonder if Don Lemon ever tires of being CNN’s token Negro.
