Loopy Lemon SCREAMS: ‘Europeans Did Not Found This Country!’

News & Politics

Following a long-winded shouting match between CNN Prime Time host Chris Cuomo and former Senator Rick Santorum where the later defended comments he made about the European and Judeo-Christian founding of America, CNN Tonight host Don Lemon lost his mind during the handoff. The irate CNNer was screaming about how Santorum was wrong and how, supposedly, “Europeans did not found this country” but “it was here” before them.

“I’m breathing heavy right now,” Lemon announced after Cuomo finished his pompous and self-righteous handoff smearing Republicans. Huffing and puffing like the Big Bad Wolf, Lemon recounted how he was sitting in his office and fuming at the TV:

I was furious watching that interview in my office. I cannot believe the first words out of his mouth weren’t I’m sorry, I said something ignorant, I need to learn about the history of this country. No contrition, didn’t talk about the suffering that Native Americans have had to deal with in this country.

Completely ignoring how Santorum had acknowledged the plight of Native Americans and condemned it, Lemon lasted out. “Did he actually think it is a good idea for him to come on television and to try to whitewash the whitewash that he whitewashed,” he shouted. “I mean, it was horrible. It was horrible. And insulting and I apologize for the viewers who were insulted by it.”

I’m sorry, it was so egregious and insulting and everything that we talked about about the founding of this country,” he added before dropping his ridiculous and factually fraudulent assertion:

Europeans did not found this country. It was here, the Native Americans had this country before the Europeans came. Yes, the European conquered the country, they colonized it. But they didn’t found — It had nothing to do with the founding of this country.

To put it bluntly, what Lemon claimed was either insanity or a naked attempt to rewrite history through the corrupted lens of critical race theory.

Yes, Native Americans inhabited the North American continent before the arrival of Europeans, but it was NOT the United States of America. It was a series of smaller tribal nations. Yes, Europeans conquered the Native Americans, just like those tribes did to other tribes and other races had done to themselves and others. Conquest was a huge driver of human history. In fact, our species was suspected of having driven other intelligent primate species to extinction during our rise to the apex.

Santorum was right to say that it was the Judeo-Christian values and enlightened thinking that helped the founders craft our current country. That is a fact. And those facts don’t mean people from non-European backgrounds are excluded from the American experience and the idea that all people are created equal.

Despite that the facts that have stood for hundreds of years, Lemon angrily proclaimed: “I am sorry, but that is the truth,” then slammed his hands on his desk. Cuomo then tried to hint that Santorum, and ultimately others who agreed with him, were racist. He even suggested they must be viewed that why so Lemon could deal with his “pain.”

At one point, Lemon seemed to admit that he didn’t know what he was getting angry about in terms of Santorum, but it had something to do with race so he had to be mad:

I don’t know the outrage. I don’t know anything about this whole Rick Santorum thing. I don’t know about that. I was just sitting, watching that interview and I heard bits and pieces of it and when I saw him, said was he going to apologize? Cause I knew initially what he said, but I don’t know anything about the outrage. I knew nothing about that.

As they were nearing the end of the handoff, Lemon lashed out at Trump supporters and claimed they’re the kind of people who “believe that America was founded in the image was white people, and that the country was built in their image, and therefore the election should go their way.

Now, if what Santorum said was so “wrong,” “egregious and insulting,” why was he still on the CNN payroll? This is CNN.

DON LEMON: I’m breathing heavy right now. Because you know how the person you need to be saying that and who need to hear it, is Rick Santorum. I cannot – I was furious watching that interview in my office. I cannot believe the first words out of his mouth weren’t I’m sorry, I said something ignorant, I need to learn about the history of this country. No contrition, didn’t talk about the suffering that Native Americans have had to deal with in this country.

I mean [exasperated breath] Rick Santorum, really? Who – Did he actually think it is a good idea for him to come on television and to try to whitewash the whitewash that he whitewashed? I mean, it was horrible. It was horrible. And insulting and I apologize for the viewers who were insulted by it. Because I was sitting in my office furious because he’s done it so many times. So, many times.

And it so – I’m sorry, it was so egregious and insulting and everything that we talked about about the founding of this country.

Europeans did not found this country. It was here, the Native Americans had this country before the Europeans came. Yes, the European conquered the country, they colonized it. But they didn’t found — It had nothing to do with the founding of this country. And he should recognize that.

He needs to know that especially if he’s going to be on television representing us and talking about it. He should be doing it from the right perspective and not from some perspective about how and what Europeans –  No, that’s the wrong way to look at it. He’s – it’s all wrong.

I am sorry, but that is the truth. And [slams hand on the desk] I can’t believe I was watching going, “I cannot believe this man was sitting here and doing this.” It was like the for Black Lives Matter, it was Native American Lives Matter moment for me watching that.

CHRIS CUOMO: Well, ask yourself this, once —

LEMON: Jesus.

CUOMO: — you deal with the emotion of it. Why are things like that said? And why does he not apologize but say —

LEMON: That’s not for me to answer. That’s for him to answer.

CUOMO: But you have to because otherwise, you are not going to have any place to put your pain.

(…)

LEMON: I don’t know the outrage. I don’t know anything about this whole Rick Santorum thing. I don’t know about that. I was just sitting, watching that interview and I heard bits and pieces of it and when I saw him, said was he going to apologize? Cause I knew initially what he said, but I don’t know anything about the outrage. I knew nothing about that.

(…)

LEMON: That’s why you have an insurrection. You have an insurrection because people believe that America was founded in the image was white people, and that the country was built in their image, and therefore the election should go their way. It’s the same thing that Rick Santorum is saying about Native Americans, and the lack of the contribution or what have you. It’s the same thing. I think people know that. I just think people are tired of being insulted every single day to their faces as if they don’t know that.

  1. Loopy Lemon hates himself for two reasons…just think about them…and it’s easy to figure out WHY he is so disappointed in life that he turned out to be this way! The only way he derives any pleasure in life because of the way he was born…is to ‘put down’ everything that he does not possess!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. lemon is a NASTY little RACIST LOSER who shows his ignorance every time he opens his mouth.

  2. Oh good grief! The Native American Indians did not found this country! Quit trying to change history to make yourself feel better!
    History is history, good and bad! We must learn from history and make sure we do not repeat the bad! Remember the past, take the good and move forward! Go on, go out and create new things! Create the history future generations will read about, create good for mankind!

  3. This just in, the racist founding fathers that the woke left have been criticizing for the past few years were in fact Native Americans. CNN’s Don Lemon will attempt to resolve the contradicting propaganda in a CNN special later tonight.

    [sarcasm]

  4. Don Lemon is a nasty, intellectually inferior racist. What a moron. Seriousl, why is Fox and or any other conservative outlet giving him as much coverage as they do? Lemon isn’t worth wasting the waste of electrons.

  5. If anyone in this country deserves reparations, it is the American. They helped the initial European settlers, and were rewarded by being driven off their land, and relegated to reservations. I would love to see a lot of “economic stimulus” go to them and give them a “leg up” to regain some of their dignity.

    1. You have no Idea About What you’re Talking About. The Native Americans Have Been Repreated along time Ago. All Native Tribes were given Land,They Pay No Taxes, They are not Governed By The USA and The Ones who have Casinos on Land That Were Given Are Paid handsomely every month. I have friends who are Mohawks…. Stop Spreading False Naratives.

      1. Thank you, Suzanne, for correcting the ….constant level of disinformation.
        It’s something that has grated on my nerves….for a very long time.

  6. Lemon is a lemon and must be on drugs, or never read a book. Literally his brain is a lemon.

  7. Lemon is an idiot. I can’t believe he is still getting a salary and that anyone (but Cuomo) even listens to his rants. He knows nothing about this country’s history.

  8. There are four conclusions that can be drawn from Looney Lemon’s rant.
    1 – He is uninformed.
    2 – He is misinformed.
    3 – he is a pathological Liar.
    4 – All of the above.

    1. Just another lying communist. Only the mental midgets of the left would even consider listening to this primate.

    2. lemon is a NASTY little RACIST LOSER who shows his ignorance every time he opens his mouth.

  9. CNN SJW strike again!!!!
    Too bad we haven’t “colonized” Mars yet, then they could complain about our abuse of the little green men there.

  10. There’s a pair! Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon
    – AKA “Dumb and Dumber” – AKA “The Boobsy Twins”!
    Proof positive that stupidity knows no race!

  11. I love this website! I can get all my ‘pet peeves’ off my chest, by;
    Insulting crooked politicians (there are so many).
    Ridiculing brain-dead liberals (there are so many).
    Deriding socialists (one is too many).
    Reminding certain black people that THEY are the racists!
    Condemning criminals of all kinds (there are too many).
    This IS the bastion of “Free speech”!

  12. Don Lemon is a useless excuse for an American, where did this asshole go to school, he has proven he knows nothing about American history, how can any so called news outlet let this idiot host anything except maybe how to shovel horseshit, I guess all the money he makes is for his ignorance and stupidity, what an embarrassment he is.

  13. I’m breathing heavy right now,” Lemon announced after Cuomo finished and started wiping off.

    So which one was the “top”, or do they switch off every so often? I always knew FREDO was a QWERTY freak!

  14. Please explain to me why anyone with a brain would pay attention to either Lemon or Cuomo. Both have been talking thru their assholes for years.

  15. I ask the question — If this country is so bad and soooo racist, how is Loopy Lemon in the position he is in at CNN? WHY is he in that position?
    In a racist country he would have been removed from society a long time ago. He would NEVER be allowed to rise to such a level in a company or to make the money he’s making.
    The simple fact that he is where he is, doing what he is, AND making the money he makes should stand to PROVE this is NOT a racist country. It also proves that ANYONE with such a small intellect can become rich and famous.
    Also, in a racist country Oprah, LeBron and others like them (non-white and wealthy) would also not have been allowed to become so rich and powerful. This Critical Race Theory crap is just that, a big pile of stinking excrement.
    Yes, mistakes are made. Yes, there ARE racists out there, BLACK AND WHITE, and otherwise. But overall, this is a GREAT COUNTRY (pre-2020) and can be once again.

  16. There all wrong, they should learn their history. During the one ice age there was a land “bridge” between Russia and Alaska and what we call Native Americans crossed following the animals they killed and ate and settled in the (South, Middle, North ) Americas. The Viking were here second reaching Canada but did not make it, then the Christian Europeans that found the Americas looking for a shorter route to China. The Christian Eruopeans claimed the land and took it from Native Americans, from the South Americas to the North Americas. All this time it was for nothing more than for money ( gold, silver, fur, agriculture, etc. ). Using God as the only reason they needed to conquer and claim all the Americas. Spain, Italy, France, England, Germany all countries in Europe.
