CNN’s Excitable Don Lemon Wants To “Blow Up The Whole System”

For those of you who are old enough, remember when CNN was a good news station? Now it’s just grade A nutbar

CNN’s Don Lemon suggests to ‘blow up the entire system’

CNN anchor Don Lemon suggested on Monday that radical change is necessary in order for the “majority” to have a bigger say in government.

During his nightly handoff with primetime colleague Chris Cuomo, Lemon floated a solution for the masses who are disenfranchised by both parties.

“We’re going to have to blow up the entire system,” Lemon said.

“I don’t know about that,” Cuomo reacted, who argued that Americans just have to vote.

“You know what we’re going to have to do?… You’re going to have to get rid of the electoral college,” Lemon continued. “Because the minority in this country get to decide who our judges are and who our president is. Is that fair?”

Did he just make the argument that we should not listen to blacks, because they are a minority of the population? That we should ignore Black Lives Marxist, er, Matter?

“You need a constitutional amendment to do that,” Cuomo replied.

“And if Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the courts and they can do that amendment and get it passed,” Lemon shot back.

Let’s see: if Biden wins and the Dems hold the House, it would be necessary to win the Senate with a total of 60 votes, unless Dems plan on getting rid of the filibuster, in order to pass a law allowing more members of the Supreme Court, in order to replace the Judiciary Act of 1869. But, the only way that matters is if the Supreme Court is planning on declaring the Electoral College un-Constitutional. Which they do not have the power to do.

Is that what Excitable Don is positioning? I’ve read things like this in good scifi and thrillers (see Austin Dragon’s After Eden series, which I really wish he’d finish, and In Due Time) and bad ones (often about how the 2nd Amendment is struck down and the military and police just Comply), but, if you think the populace would stand for this, wouldn’t happen, and, without being overblown, would cause a civil war, with Red states essentially seceding.

In order for Congress to pass an Amendment would require 2/3rds of the Senate and House to vote for it, then 3/4ths of the states would need to ratify. Good f’ing luck on that.

    I agree. We need to rein in the federal government, as was originally designed, so conservatives/normals (i.e. the majority) to have a bigger say.

    Didn’t the Morlocks elect trump to “blow up the system”, that is, eliminate the Deep State, destroy the media, drown American norms, international isolation etc?

      Blow up the system was an MSM construct. Even Megan Kelly used it on Election night. Michael Moore talked about it all the time. The funny thing about leftists is they tend to talk in leftist ideology when projecting to the right.

      The USA is far from Isolated. In fact more people trust the USA today than ever before because Donald Trump is not blowing the shit out of everyone in sight. It is why the Middle East is signing peace deals with Israel because they hate America so much right now. No they see America as someone that wants to end all this terrorism in the ME and its been the PLO and Democrats who have kept alive this strife to benefit the establishment in Washington DC.

      Unlike Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama. Hell Obama dropped more bombs in his 8 years than Bush did in his and probably killed twice as many people. You only hear this from the progressive left who is not the same thing as the communist left. Progressives despise the MSM including MSNBC, CNN and the rest of them. The loons on the left living in their echo chamber worship the leftist media while the Progressive left has learned to exist outside of the bubble which seeks to support the Establishment in Washington DC.

      I am surprised you don’t know any of this. In fact Elwood, your more likely to be an entrenched establishment leftist than you are a progressive since you really know very little about what your own side actually believes in other than Critical Race Theory, the 1619 project and Saul Alinsky tactics which have run their course after being effectively used by Obama in the 2007-2008 campaign.

      • Est1950 says:

        I should clarify one point that might be misconstrued. Progressives are Marxists. The establishment, Identitarian wing of the DNC are Maoists. Both are communists but in real terms, the Maoists want to destroy America. The marxist progressives really believe that with some tweaks they can make America work without blowing it all up.

        those that are speaking of blowing up the system right now are Maoists. Bought and paid for by China and Iran. So while both factions are problematic for the left the Maoists are the ones that are burning it all down while the progressives will be voting for Trump yet again because they hate wars and love peace and guess what Trump is bringing them.

        An end to wars and peace.

      For those who haven’t heard, norms is now the in Lefty concept.

      The Lefties didn’t give a damn about norms for the past 50 years and have done all they could to destroy them.

      Unless said norms could be useful to their agenda.

      And Trump was elected to restore the system, eliminate the Deep State, reform the media, and make our position in the world more responsive to the will of the American people.

      If anyone constitutes the Morlocks (do you know where that comes from? I’ll bet not), it’s the Lefties who go berserk any time they don’t get what they want.

      Last night you were whining about getting rid of the 9 member Court. Now the idea that Cocaine Mitch could expand (pack, if you will) the Court is being suggested.

      How does a 13 member court with Amy Coney Barrett, Barbara Lagoa, Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, and Don Willett grab you?

          As usual you only see what you want to see. Must be a leftist mental illness. Nowhere does formwiz mention the word “Eloi”. He does however, state that the evil, rioting, cop murdering, baby killing left are akin to Morlocks. And he’s spot fukin on!

          Trump 2020 Keep the killers on the left out of our government.

          Black Lives Matter can add another to its body count. Marine vet Jake Gardner, who killed a BLM terrorist in self-defense, has been driven to suicide at the age of 38.

          Authorities were not going to press charges after he shot James Scurlock during a George Floyd protest on May 30 in Omaha.

          Characteristically, the mob bombarded Gardner with death threats and promises to burn his business down.

          The political pressure mounted. If they would prosecute the McCloskeys for standing in their own yard with firearms to dissuade the mob from burning their house down, you could hardly expect authorities to forgive Gardner for actually killing a BLM brownshirt.

          First, he lost his bar; the landlord pulled the lease. Then he was asked to turn himself in on charges of manslaughter, attempted first-degree assault, terroristic threats, and weapon use. Making a “terroristic threat” is what they call it now if you warn a terrorist to back off.

          Gardner could have faced 95 years in prison. But he had only been found guilty by social media, not in a courtroom, making his death all the more tragic. The mob had already managed to wreck his life for being a business owner who defended himself, but a jury in a relatively sane place like Nebraska might at least have found him not guilty.

          The fateful incident began when mostly peaceful protesters attacked his bar “The Hive” near 12th and Harney. Scurlock’s friend Tucker Randall threw a signpost at the front. When Gardner and his 69-year-old father David went out to investigate, Randall knocked David Gardner onto his back.

          Omaha.com picks up the story:
          David Gardner, holding a knife, pushed Scurlock, who was unarmed. Scurlock pushed a bystander next to Jake Gardner. Walking backward, Jake Gardner lifted his shirt to show a gun, saying “Don’t (expletive) with me.”
          That must have been the “terroristic threat.”
          He pulled the gun and briefly held it down by his side, then returned it to his waistband. At that point, a woman tackled Jake Gardner from behind, knocking him on his back. Randall hovered within inches of the two as they struggled. Jake Gardner fired what he called two warning shots — the grand jury found that one of the shots was an attempt to assault Randall. Both the woman and Randall ran away. Three seconds later, Scurlock jumped on Gardner’s back, the beginning of the 18-second struggle.

          Scurlock got Gardner in a headlock and ignored his pleas to let go. Gardner fired over his shoulder, killing his assailant.

          At first, this was acknowledged as justifiable homicide. Then politics came into it. Jake Gardner was white, James Scurlock black.

          As noted at the Wall Street Journal,
          The shooting led to large demonstrations in Omaha.
          When the mob speaks, authorities listen.
          Jake Gardner served two tours in Iraq. He suffered traumatic brain injuries and had PTSD at the time of the shooting. He sacrificed himself to help civilization reestablish itself in a foreign country, only to learn that the job urgently needs doing here at home.

          A GoFundMe page to raise money for Gardner’s defense was reportedly deleted by the platform. The deck is stacked against the good guys and in favor of the mob.

          The hate by the left of law, Justice and humanity is their only reason to exist.

    “In order for the majority to have a bigger say…”. What a clown-the electoral college was put in place for that very reason-to guard against the “tyranny of the majority”.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The founding fathers were prescient constructing the Constitution in such a way that the ruling elites always had a built-in advantage. The elites did not trust the judgement of the great unwashed masses.

    • formwiz says:

      Too bad what you just said was absolute gibberish.

    • Kye says:

      Nor should they have since the great unwashed masses have proved themselves to be fukin morons. You’re a perfect example. Take a Republic based on law and Justice and try to turn it into an “equality” based commie shithole.

      There’s a reason so many people on earth want to live in this country created by white Christians and not say, Somalia. Why don’t you ponder that for a few moments or would it upset your racial sensitivity?’

      BTW Elwood, the only Americans on the receiving side of inequality these days are the ones not included in Affirmative Action, Desperate Impact or Quotas. They are reserved for Black Privilege.

      Trump 2020 Let’s wash the great unwashed masses instead of lying to them.

      Leftist Takes Political Bullying to New Level

      Threatening political violence if elections don’t go their way was appalling, but that wasn’t rock bottom. They kept digging. A leftist named Leo Guinan demonstrates how far they have descended by sharing the text message he sent to his parents after his father dared show support for Trump:

      Due to the signs in the yard, the kids and I will not be down. The current occupant of the White House is preaching hate and violence, endangering the lives and safety of many of my friends. This is not acceptable to me at all. There is a complete disregard for women, minorities, science, ethics, and morality. Please consider if you support Trump that much. Because I hate him that much. I wanted to be upfront and honest about my feelings.

      That is, he denies his parents access to their children and grandchildren to punish them for not submitting to his political views.

      The author thought over this cruel act — and then congratulated himself for doing the correct thing.

      The lack of self-awareness is characteristic of sanctimonious progressives. Note that he denounces the president for “preaching hate,” then acknowledges within a few sentences that he himself is motivated by hate.

      Moonbats can’t win with rational arguments, so they bully. That’s why we have cancel culture and hundreds upon hundreds of Black Lives Matter riots. In the absence of pushback, their bullying will never stop, because their ideology is too narrow to encompass the concept of basic decency.

      Sounds a lot like Elwood, no?

    Jeffery is always bellyaching about Trmup’s promise of GDP growth.

    According to the Atlanta Fed, growth in this quarter will be 32%.

    Which will annualize to 16%.
