Have you noticed that leftists in the media are going out of their way to defend left wing mobs? CNN’s Don Lemon recently shouted down Matt Lewis of the Daily Beast and even told him to shut up for daring to call a mob a mob.
The Hill has details:
Don Lemon shouts down CNN commentator on activist ‘mob’ definition: ‘Shut up!’
Lewis was invited on Lemon’s show, “CNN Tonight,” to continue the conversation, where the conservative Daily Beast columnist made the point that the Tea Party “didn’t hound people out of restaurants” as was the case with Cruz last month or Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen over the summer.
“The Tea Party did hound people. The Tea Party people hounded me when I went out to cover them!” Lemon shot back. “And do you know what I said? It was their right to do it because they’re Americans!”
“Don, if they started following you around a restaurant and running you out of places,” Lewis replied.
“But that doesn’t mean that people don’t get to object,” Lemon interrupted. “That’s your right as an American to object. It’s covered in the First Amendment. It’s like the first one!”
After some extended verbal volleying over the proper definition of a mob, Lemon lost his patience.
“Will you let me finish? Matt, please! Let me finish,” Lemon exclaimed.
“Bring it on. Mind if I have a drink?” Lewis asked.
“You can do whatever you want. You can leave the show if you want,” Lemon replied.
“I’m not going to do that,” Lewis said.
“Shut up and let me do it,” Lemon said.
