"Nobody is erasing history," Lemon told Cuomo.
You are changing history and destroying history-carrying artifacts.
"What people are trying to do is put it in context and these are conversations that we should be having. And yes, they are messy. And sometimes people aren't smart about which statues they should taken down. Fine. If the people on the other side would think, 'Well maybe we should get involved in the conversation about which statues should be taken down, where they should be put, we should meet these people in the middle and discuss these things.' These are the right conversations to be had. We're contextualizing it the wrong way. We're Looking at it the wrong way. And I think that's the issue."
You want history to be placed in the modern context, to be judged by the things history has fixed. Slave owners set the course to free the slaves, but they are evil because they owned slaves. That is the "context" you want. Your "conversations" are also funny in how they only go one way. Your conversations are simple: the left says it wants something, and the right should simply surrender. Oh, it is our fault that good statues are being torn down because, well, you know, the left is ignorant and it is our responsibility to meet them in the middle and show them the right way to be ignorant.
While you put our historical heroes, those who not only accomplished things in their lives but also after their deaths, you excuse people within your movement. "Movements are messy," you say. Yes, so they are and always have been. You know, like the mess the blood of over 600,000 Americans made fighting to put an end to slavery. Your "movement," however, is not messy, but is surgical in its intention to destroy the great accomplishments of mankind, and is using slop and ignorance as its tools.
You, Don Lemon, are one of those tools. You are a propagandist for the apocalypse of civilization. You are proud to be part of this and the terrifyingly sad thing is you think you are doing good while you self-aggrandize. Yet, the very revolution you want to usher into existence would sacrifice you and your kind in the blink of an eye.
Pretty brazen misinformation, if I may say so
When the propaganda outlet CNN calls historical facts propaganda.
Don "smell my dick" Lemon!
