On Thursday, I reported on four Black Lives Matter activists who kidnapped a disabled man who supported Donald Trump and tortured him on a live stream on Facebook. In commenting on the report, CNN host Don Lemons said, "I don't think its evil."
A guest commenting on CNN said that what people have to do is face the reality that things like what these people engage in is evil, nothing more.
Lemmons chimed in, "I don't think it's evil. I don't think it's evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training."
Wait, what? Of course, it's evil! On the other hand, bad home training, or lack of it, probably did have something to do with it. Even the Bible teaches such things.
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it. –Proverbs 22:6
Failing to train children or training them I a wrong manner can have completely evil consequences. That doesn't dismiss the fact that what these four criminals engaged in is evil.
I believe everyone knows it's wrong to kidnap someone and torture them. However, there was probably bad behavior from these degenerates in the home that was never corrected, which then goes on to embolden them to behave worse. They are responsible for their own actions whether trained right or wrong.
However, for a news host to say this is not evil should be enough to discredit anything else he says. How in the world can you understand what evil is without a proper understanding of what good is, and the only place I know that you can define such consistently outside of yourself is in the Bible.
Even worse, politicians are wanting to create an entire new category of crime regarding such things as what took place. Since these were all Blacks who did this to one white man, many want to refer to it as a "hate crime." Of course, it is hateful. There is no doubt, but the reality is that all crime is an outpouring of hate. You certainly don't commit a crime out of love for the person you are committing it against.
However, the White House has often jumped the gun and cried racism and hate crime over all kinds of things from the Trayvon Martin case to the Henry Louis Gates controversy to defending Muslims and sodomites, who often commit fake hate crimes against themselves.
Yet, when it came to this crime, they just didn't know if it fit their description of a hate crime. Convenient.
Piper McGowin also points out something about CNN's reporting.

Keep in mind CNN is the same "news" outlet that painstakingly listed out every instance of supposed hate crimes against minorities after Trump was elected (most of which were comprised of graffiti without witnesses, in other words, easily hoaxable), but when it came to a black mob yelling "You voted Trump!" while beating a white guy — and calling him "white boy" — all caught on tape (and in Chicago again no less)…
Well, then the outlet refers to it with lines like, "And it's not just incidents of hate crimes that have happened since the election. There have been reports of other attacks, too…"
See how they did that? Apparently this is an "other attack" according to CNN, not a hate crime:
Because, in the Orwellian world of liberal mainstream media race baiting, hate crimes simply can't happen to white people ever… even when hate crimes are clearly happening to white people.
