CNN anchor Don Lemon, known as the “dumbest man on TV,” was infuriated when Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson exclaimed that the “white supremacy” problem is all just a hoax.
Carlson drew fire last week when he pointed out that the “threat” of “white nationalism” is pretty small in the scheme of things. Indeed, Carlson pointed out that the actual number of “white supremacists” were tiny compared to the number of other threats in the U.S.
The discussion arose after the media went full court press to push the claim that “white supremacists” were a major danger to the nation after a man with some loose white supremacist ties committed murder in El Paso, Texas.
But, per Carlson, white supremacy is not really a big threat:
“If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns, of problems this country faces, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia, probably. It’s actually not a real problem in America. The combined membership of every white supremacist organization in this country would be able to fit inside a college football stadium. I mean, seriously. This is a country where the average person is getting poorer, where the suicide rate is spiking. ‘White supremacy, that’s the problem.’ This is a hoax. Just like the Russia hoax. It’s a conspiracy theory used to divide the country and keep a hold on power. That’s exactly what’s going on.”
According to Mediaite, CNN’s Lemon lost his little mind over Carlson’s position.
“Hold on a second. Was that not the dumbest thing you ever heard?” Lemon bloviated. “Crazy. Listen, I don’t know how anybody could say that considering what happened this week. I want to look at the facts now, and his statement directly contradicts what the FBI director said.”
But by one source that liberals really love to utilize, the number of white people — much less actual “white supremacists” — responsible for shooting more than 2 people at once pales in comparison to the number of blacks and others that have committed mass murder.
According to the Mass Shooting Tracker, of the last 72 mass shooters, 51 percent were perpetrated by blacks, 11 percent were Latino, and 29 percent were white people (only a very few of which were identified as “white supremacists.”)
Those stats from the left’s favorite site does not seem to tell us there is a “white supremacy” problem.
