How CNN’s Daffy Don Lemon Demonstrates Tolerance

Written by Laurie Higgins

Don Lemon, the daffy anchor on CNN, perfectly captured the arrogance and hypocrisy of many leftists—like many of my former colleagues at Deerfield High School—who while mouthing words about valuing diversity and tolerance and about their commitment to “honoring” all voices—cancel friendships with those whose views they hate. Lemon said this about friends he’s dumped because they support Trump:

I have many people who I love in my life. … There are a lot of friends who I really had to get rid because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue. They have every single talking point that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this president. They repeat it, and they are blinded by it. … I had to get rid of them cuz they are too far gone. I try, and I try, and I try. They’ll say something really stupid, and then I’ll show them the science and I’ll give them the information, and they still repeat those talking points. … I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you’ve just got to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict, right? And they have to want to get help. They have to want to know the truth. They have to want to live in reality. They have to want to be responsible not only for other people’s lives but for their lives. … I don’t know if after this I’ll ever be able to go back and be friends with those people because at a certain point you just say, they’re too far gone and I’ve gotta let them go, and if they’re willing to come back and if they’re willing to live in reality, then I’ll welcome them with open arms. But I can’t do it anymore.

That’s “progressive” tolerance and respect for diversity for you. Think just like them or you’re cut off.

The leftists I encounter just repeat the talking points they read in the New York Times and Washington Post or hear on CNN and MSNBC. They repeat them like little automatons and if challenged, they squawk about my “closed mind” and then take their simplistic ideas and stomp angrily home. They especially hate when I ask if they are more open to my ideas than I am to theirs.

They’re blinded by the ideas that leftists are forced to impose via censorship and threats of social ostracism and loss of employment because they lack rational, coherent arguments.

Word to Lemon, conservatives think leftist beliefs are nonsensical, stupid, false, irresponsible, destructive, and anti-science, but for conservatives, tolerance and love are not conditional on uniformity of beliefs.

Listen to this article read by Laurie:


PLEASE PRAY: Pray for God’s mercy on our nation as we vote for President, Congress, state & local officials. Pray for wisdom for voters and a safe and fair election. Pray that God would convict the hearts of Christians to come out to vote their Biblical values.

Please also pray that the ongoing FBI investigations in Illinois would expose corruption and usher in new, honest and wise elected officials.
