MSNBC's Toure' took to Twitter calling CNN's Don Lemon , who is in no way a conservative, or white, a "white leader", and essentially being an Uncle Tom or Steppin' Fetchit for his white masters. A piece at AllHipHop.com calls for Don Lemon to be fired. No, Toure' did not use those terms specifically, but AllHipHop.com did, and the message from both of them to Don Lemon was crystal clear: "You had better be on board with the progressive black agenda 100% , or we will destroy you."
|Toure' first tweets that Don Lemon is a "white leader", |
then clarifies that Lemon's not really white, but leads "white people".
All Hip Hop even had the temerity to attack Lemon for being gay, writing "Don might be more equipped to criticize the gay or journalistic communities." So, apparently Don Lemon is gay enough to speak on gay issues, but he's not "black enough" to speak out as a black man. This is the other side of the false belief that liberalism is somehow more sensitive to blacks/gays/children, ad infinitum. It's a lie. Take one step off of the progressive plantation and they send the dogs after you.
What was it that Don Lemon had said that had Toure' and AllHipHop.com so up in arms? He responded to a "Talking Points Memo" by Fox News' Bill O'Reilly in which the host said: “The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African-American family…Raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that. Again, it is a personal decision.”
Lemon opined that O'Reilly had a point, but claimed that O'Reilly didn't go far enough, and added these five points:
- pull up pants
- drop the N-word
- take care of their communities
- finish high school
- lower rate of children born out of wedlock.
To other liberals who are thinking of thinking outside the progressive agenda: Toure's shot across the bow of Don Lemon is a message to all liberals to stay on message, and that dissent can not and will not be tolerated.
