[Ed. – A bigger problem is liberal ‘analysts’ who make insane generalizations like this.]

On a special Sunday edition of CNN Tonight, liberal contributor Kirsten Powers declared that “white men are very violent and a problem” during a segment in which host Don Lemon defended his comments from last week that “the biggest terror threat” in the U.S. is white men.

At 10:36 p.m. Eastern, Lemon brought up a recent New York Times article which cites a study by the Anti-Defamation League suggesting that law enforcement is not concerned enough about white or right-wing extremists committing terrorist acts and hate crimes. Lemon: “They say, of the extremist-related murders in the U.S., 71 percent came from right-wing extremism, 26 percent Islamic extremism, three percent from left-wing extremism. That’s 387 total deaths from 2008 to 2017.”

Speaking to CNN contributor Charlie Dent, Lemon added: “Shouldn’t law enforcement be concerned about it? Shouldn’t we be concerned about it? Shouldn’t we be able to talk about it without being demonized, quite honestly. I did, but it was accurate. What I said was right. What’s the way — what do we do?”
