CNN host Don Lemon declared Monday night that “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men” and “there is no travel ban on them.”

Lemon’s pronouncement came during a handoff between his program and fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo.

“I keep trying to point out to people, and not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity…” Lemon said prior to doing what he said he wouldn’t do.

“But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else,” the CNN personality continued. “Some people who are marching, you know, towards the border, like it’s imminent.”

He argued the last time there was a caravan toward the U.S. border, most of them “tuckered out” before they reached it.

“So, we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” Lemon concluded. “There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on … you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban.”

“So what do we do about that?” Lemon asked.

Many on the right highlighted that the CNN host not only contradicted himself, but engaged in bigotry toward an entire race.

The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis tweeted the clip captioning it, “We have to stop demonizing people based on race or ethnicity and also white men are terrorists. This is CNN.”

Fox News commentator Todd Starnes asked, “Is that unadulterated racism or bigotry?”

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume added, “I could hardly believe he actually said that, but the video shows he certainly did. Remarkable.”

Political strategist Chuck Callesto tweeted, “Take out the words ‘WHITE MEN’ and REPLACE them with ‘BLACK MEN’ and see how fast the HOST who says this GETS FIRED…Race BAITING at it’s FINEST… DEMS feed on DIVISION.”

The conservative advocacy group For America, in a Twitter post with the video, wrote, “Dear @CNN, You can’t fight racism when you employ a racist list Don Lemon.”

On his program Monday night, Lemon also said, “I don’t see Democrats killing people” over politics, which congressional baseball shooting victim House Majority Whip Steve Scalise found to be a surprising claim.

    @CNN as a white male I am deeply OFFENDED by the insensitive, hurtful comments by your anchor and I DEMAND fair treatment in the industry, if a conservative anchor is fired for making comments like this then SO SHOULD HE! I DEMAND you take the appropriate action of firing him IMMEDIATELY.

    CNN will not fire Lemon, because he probably bends over for his bosses, like a good little bent black.

    Don Lemon is a bigot as an “old white male” where nothing has offended me until now I am now becoming offended. Both CNN & This asshole need to apologize. It’s not just him, it’s the cows on the view and many others. Where are the civil rights groups? It has reached Critical point now & we have to start taking a stand. Women, children who have old white males as dads need to stand with us. If anyone thinks this is good it’s causing a divide, we have kept our mouths shut no more. I’m done boycott Don Lemons advertisers & the view as well.

    Lemon the Lemon. All I know is you and yourcohorts are the only threat to us. How could you insult your white partner with your insanity. Hopefully he has some common sense and gives you the boot that you deserve. What a nut case you are. Why don’t you join Barbara Streisand and the rest of the nut cases and move to Canada or wherever. We don’t want or need you.

    Lemon is a Lemon. The only danger to us is you and your cohorts. You should apologize to your spouse. Your spouse should dump you if he has any common sense. Why don’t all of you nut cases like Barbara Streisand, etc. move to Canada or wherever. We don’t need or want you period.

    Don Lemon is becoming more emboldened with each new day and it will continue unless CNN puts a stop to it! But they think it’s ok because he is ‘black’ and he is attacking ‘white’ ‘men’ – supposedly the highest you can get on the hierarchy scale – so they are fair game!

    This has to stop!

    Aggression against white males. This is racist , that is NOT allowed. Lemon must be fired immediately ! Just ask Al $harpton and Maxi Pad Waters.

    FIRE HIM NOW and look into the possibility of charging him for hate crimes. Yes we have free speech but as a news outlet, their anchors and spokespersons are supposed to be neutral. He obviously has an agenda, and he just demonized a large portion of American citizens. Sounds a lot like what hitler and the nazis did to Jews and blacks, and we fought a world war to stop them and dropped two nukes. He is only stoking the fire for a race war in this country. The most endangered minority in America politically speaking is white men. I can objectively say that because I am a woman, but my childhood nickname was Clyde. The liberal left are terrorizing hard working people that happen to have a moral compass from within.
