A day after getting hammered for insisting that white men are the biggest terror threat in America CNN anchor Don Lemon, who dates a white man, doubled down on his rhetoric.
“’I made some comments about that in a conversation with Chris (Cuomo). I said that the biggest terror threat in this country comes from radicals on the far right, primarily white men. That angered some people,” Lemon said.
“But let’s put emotion aside and look at the cold hard facts. The evidence is overwhelming. A recent report from the Government Accountability Office shows that.
“Even though more people died in attacks connected to Islamic extremists, the vast majority of deadly attacks in this country from 2001 to 2016 were carried out by far-right violent extremists,” he said.
It’s like his mouth is falling down the stairs.

The host then put numbers on the screen to support his case.
But where do his numbers come from? A group called The Nation Institute and its investigative fund. Sounds official and unbiased doesn’t it?
