CNN’s Don Lemon, when he’s not busy literally fawning over his political guests, is a big time advocate of fascist policies in all sorts of things. He doesn’t think you should be allowed to say some things, or think some things, or do most things. But he especially doesn’t want to let you go unvaccinated.
When it comes to authoritarian crackdowns, he’s an emotionally unstable cheerleader like no other.
First, on Tuesday.

“Don’t get the vaccine, you can’t go to the supermarket! Don’t have the vaccine? can’t go to the ball game. Don’t have the vaccine? Can’t go to work. Don’t have the vaccine? You can’t come here. No shirt, no shoes, no service. That’s where I think we should be right now, because we continue to waste our breath on people who are just not going to change. They’re — you know, circular logic. they just keep going back and saying, well, ‘it’s my freedom.’ It’s whatever. ‘I’m free.’ Well, your kid’s not free to give other kids meningitis in schools. Got to take the vaccine to do that. Got to take vaccines into order to get — to be employed. So… what is the big deal?”
Literally mocking tone on the word freedom. I mean can y’all make it more obvious, CNN?
Not in the tweeted video, Lemon goes on to mock unvaccinated Americans, who he obviously believes are all white MAGA and beneath him, as being drunks and druggies.
“All these people are saying, I don’t want to put this stuff in my body. They’re out drinking on the weekend and putting other substances in their bodies that’s way worse than a vaccine. So, come on, let’s be real.”
He hit it again on Thursday, making sure to bash freedom and liberty some more.

“We’ve got to start telling people, if you don’t get vaccinated, you can’t come into this office or this place of business. if you don’t get vaccinated, you can’t come into this gym. If you don’t get vaccinated, you can’t get onto this airplane. It has nothing to do with freedom! It has nothing to do with liberty!! You don’t have the freedom and the liberty to put other people in jeopardy!”
The mantra of the do-good fascist. How familiar.
I almost said I can’t believe there was no outcry about him calling antivax people druggies but of course it’s totally believable. There are no boundaries now.
