Don Lemon: "The Biggest Terror Threat In This Country Is White Men"

|

CNN's Don Lemon said people need to realize that white men radicalized to the right are "the biggest terror threat" to the country on Monday night.

Lemon lamented that a travel ban was put on Muslims because of terror fears but there is not a "white guy ban" for radicalized white males. The CNN host said we have to "stop demonizing people" and realize this is a real threat.

"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. 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," he said.





DON LEMON, CNN HOST: I keep trying to point out to people and not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity. But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, someone people who are marching, you know, towards the border, like it's imminent.

And the last time they did this, a couple hundred people came and they -- you know, most of them did get into the country, most of them tired-- you know, got tuckered out before they made it to the border.

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. 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? And first of all, let me just say this. Maurice Stallard is the name and Vicki Jones. And they have been lost in all of this. Two people who were killed on Wednesday that you talked about.

They have been lost in this, and I know that people feel that this story has not gotten enough coverage, and we will honor them tonight in our program.
