Navy SEAL Blows Up Internet with Response to ‘White Men’ Threat: ‘If CNN Does Not Fire Don Lemon Immediately…’

There were many people who had a negative response to CNN’s Don Lemon rant demonizing white men. But perhaps no one gave a better response than former U.S. Navy Seal, Ephraim Mattos.

After Mattos left the military, he didn’t retire completely from the field of battle. He joined the Free Burma Rangers, a group that helps civilians in war zones.

You may recall the story of the man who raced out amidst gunfire from ISIS to save a little Iraqi girl.

It was Mattos who was laying down cover fire so that man could save the little girl and Mattos was shot just as they were carrying her away.


You can see more on his amazing story and the moment he was shot during the rescue here:

“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,” Lemon said on his CNN show.

Here’s what Mattos had to say to Don Lemon:

After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near-fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars, mine-fields, suicide bombers and laying down my life for the cause of freedom while fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with my brother Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Animists, and Atheists, I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrorist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.

I represent just one of the hundreds of thousands of conservative white men who have fought to preserve freedom in this great Nation and in other nations. My forefathers are the 3% who founded this Republic against the might of the British Army. It was white Conservative men who died by the tens of thousands after charging into our southern states to free our black brothers from the slavery imposed on them by the Liberal left. We were the ones who acknowledged that women have a right to vote. We held the line in WWI and charged the beaches of Normandy in WWII. We have fought for freedom and liberty for generations and we continue to do so today alongside all of our brothers and sisters regardless of their race or religion.

In the early 1930s, Hitler said the same thing about the Jews that Don Lemon of CNN just said about white men. This is the true face of the Democratic Party. First they enslaved and killed blacks, and now they use them to spew hatred and lies against the very people who have fought for generations to free them and uplift them.

Remember that when you go to vote.

One final thought: To make a point, I have referred to myself as a “white male” in the previous sentences multiple times, but I must make it clear that I identify as simply “American,” not as “white” or “male” or “Republican.”
Although blatantly racist and hateful, do not let Don Lemon’s ignorant words drive you into viewing yourself only by your race and religion. Identity politics does not lead to freedom. It only leads to hatred and division and an “us vs. them” mentality.

If CNN does not fire Don Lemon immediately, it only goes to show that they are truly the “enemy of the people.”

— Ephraim Mattos, Former US Navy SEAL

CNN has not made any comment about Lemon’s remarks.

And Lemon has not only defended his attack but doubled down on it, saying we don’t need to worry about people 1,000 miles away, apparently referencing various migrant caravans heading to the U.S. through Mexico some of whom have already attacked Mexican police. Lemon reiterated that the biggest threats were “home-grown.”

Your final thought is beautifully put. Thank you. “One final thought: To make a point, I have referred to myself as a “white male” in the previous sentences multiple times, but I must make it clear that I identify as simply “American,” not as “white” or “male” or “Republican.” “

Don Lemon is correct about one thing, The biggest threats are homegrown. They are the media, the corporations like Facebook and Google, Politicians from the LEFT and groups like ANTIFA and BLM.

Suzie, that sounds great until one takes your statement to a logical conclusion, which ultimately puts freedom in lock-down. The poison people spew can only be neutralized with an informed appreciation for U.S.A. HISTORY compared to world history. Ours isn’t perfect, and never will be, but those who claim failed philosophies will suddenly lead us to a promised land are simply ignorant.

I wasn’t aware a study done by the Anti Defamation League showing white right wing extremists being 71% of the domestic extremist violence is “humorous”. And your belief about antifa is just factually wrong, especially given the shootings by white racist extremists in just the last month alone. Thought I’ve also learned that as soon as right wingers learn the study came from the ADL, that opens an whole different can of bigoted worms.

Ok…. 20 out of 34 = 59%….. Now tell me how many (number wise) have been uselessly killed by gang violence, antifa, blm and other radical left groups not to mention how many of our law enforcement officers have been killed! Lets talk about chicago! You are pathetic!

That’s the main problem. Somehow people began labeling everyone. We are ALL AMERICANS. When they began labeling African-American, Mexican-American….etc. is all wrong. That’s your nationality. I don’t go around saying I’m German, Irish, British, French, Native-American…. that’s my nationality. again we are ALL AMERICAN!

This would go right over Lemon’s head. He is too full of himself to appreciate true sacrifice. Has no idea what patriotism means. Americans have had a long and arduous journey to get to this point and still we know we have a long way to go and will work at it every day. If you haven’t voted yet, #walkaway and run the Red table.

CNN doesn’t have to make a comment. Lemon was correct in saying “The biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right”, based a study done by the Anti-Defamation League, which has been out for almost a year.
https://qz.com/1182778/the-far-right-was-responsible-for-the-majority-of-extremist-killings-in-2017/

This study shows that 71% of domestic extremist murders have been committed by radicalized white right wingers. That’s just a fact.

Fortunately, I grew up in a home where the “blame” was always placed where it belonged. That being – on the “Village Idiot”. Every Village has one. Every Family has one. Every Race, Religion, Corporation, Political Party, School, Sports Team, and even “the Media” has their Village Idiot. Truth known, Village Idiots are probably less than one-tenth of 1%. So, when a Village Idiot says or does something really stupid or crazy – Don’t go blaming the entire group, race, religion, corporation or political party – blame the Village Idiot.

Lemon is a racist! I live in the south, taught in a title 1 school, my co workers were black and white, I raised three sons, I taught my sons who were white to be kind, respect people , not to see people for what color they were but what kind of a person they were, I Aldo taught my black kids who were my students the same principals! Lemon has no place as a news broadcaster with this kind of predIcious ! Fire him! This is not the first time he has shown his true colors!

I’ve said it often, do extreme liberals realize how much like the 1930’s Nazis they really are? This attempt to silence and punish opposing points of view, the shouting down, the violence, the demonizing of white conservative males as the Nazis did Jews?

First of all, thank you for your service. This should never be tolerated from anyone. He needs to be fired. I don’t get why it is okay for blacks to speak hate against white people however, if a white person says any little thing that upsets a black person they are made to step down. In the case of Megyn Kelly that was totally ridiculous that she was fired. Especially after what Lemon said and didn’t even get a slap on the hand.

Jewel Queen

They were looking for a reason to fire Megyn Kelly because she had lost over 500,000 viewers and were paying her an obscene amount of money. Guess they felt they were not getting their money’s worth. She was not saying that black-face or white-face was acceptable–merely commenting on what people did at Halloween when she was a child.

CNN has not made a comment on his remarks because, if anyone heard it in context, they know it is true. Conservatives need to learn how to have a civil conversation. I heard him make this remark, and what he said was true: Two in the last few weeks were radicalized by Donald Trump.
