According to Oxford’s definition of “bigot,” it’s a person who “is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.” This weekend, the liberal guests featured on Don Lemon’s segment on CNN showed themselves to be the worst sort.
Of course, democrats have a long history of bigotry and racism. There’s the pesky reminders that democrats fought to retain their slaves, the Jim Crow laws they created, and then later they vehemently opposed the Civil Rights movement in the 1960’s.
But, we’re all supposed to forget those facts and focus on the “progressive” and “tolerant” democrat party of today and how superior they are, right?
We’re all supposed to bow to these new masters who claim intellect makes them our betters, and when they decide to ignorantly deride a group of people… we’re all supposed to laugh along.
While professing to be ‘enlightened,’ Lemon and his fellow haters proceeded to mock all Trump supporters as backward, illiterate Southerners. (Well, I think Wilson’s pathetic accent is supposed to be Southern.)
The backlash shows that not everyone is laughing.
In fact, the only people who do think that this disgusting display was amusing, must erroneously believe that they are included in the elite group of intellectual rulers.
Apparently, the lack of self-realization among liberals is strong. What if a group of republicans had similarly mocked Obama voters? Wouldn’t the charges of racism still be echoed in every biased broadcast?
Wilson got the party rolling by saying that “Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter ‘U’ and a picture of an actual, physical crane next to it,” which sent Lemon into a hysterical fit of laughter. They were just getting started.
Wilson went on to sneer at “the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump, the ones that think that” — and here he broke out into a Southern accent — “Donald Trump’s the smart one, and there all y’all, y’all elitists are duuuumb.” Lemon laughed even harder.
Ali chimed in: “You elitists, with your geography and your maps and your spelling.” At this point, Lemon was laughing so hard that he pulled out a handkerchief to wipe his tear-filled eyes.
Wilson, still in a faux Southern accent, added: “Your math and your readin!’”
“Yeah, your readin’, your geography, knowing other countries, sipping your latte,” said Ali.
“All those liiines on the map,” said Wilson, continuing to use the fake accent.
“Only them elitists know where Ukraine is,” Ali shot back, before seeming to half-realize that the panel had gone too far. “Sorry, I apologize,” he said with a smile.
Lemon, meanwhile, was still laughing hysterically, only managing to say: “Oh my gosh!” in between cackles.
The anchor finally, slowly, regained his composure, but not before extending his gratitude for the sneers: “Rick, that was a good one, I needed that.”
The arrogance, the dismissiveness, the smug cackling, the accents.

Personally, their arrogance (which seems to be based on a false image of themselves) doesn’t bother me as much as their total lack of self-realization and emotional and mental immaturity.
It makes me wonder how they are able to operate a vehicle or use the bathroom successfully. These aren’t men, they are spoiled, ignorant and bigoted children.
In fact, the only logical response such mental midgets can understand is “I know you are, but what am I?”
And, if this is what they say ON AIR, what do you think they say when the cameras aren’t rolling?
