“That day we were able to save one man and one little girl.”
Someone who can say that about a foreign war zone is on far firmer ground to make any moral argument than someone like Don Lemon throws darts from behind a convenient desk and who sees racism lurking behind every bush.
That helps put Lemon on the losing side of this argument.
Meet Ephraim Mattos. After retiring from the Navy Seals, he went back to the Middle East and was helping civilians trapped in war zones. As part of ‘Free Ranger Burma’ he was rescuing a little girl in the midst of 60 dead bodies when he got shot in the leg.
Here he is at work with his team, saving some civilians, and taking a bullet in the leg:
Here is the video for a little more context:
You may remember Don Lemon talking about how we shouldn’t demonize people before launching into a description of how evil and dangerous white men are. You can tell it was no accident because he doubled down again the next day.
Ephraim Matto was having none of it. Here is his Epic response:
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
“I Identify as simply American”
Oh, but our nation could use more people who think like him, instead of breaking us all into neat little identity group boxes of ‘friend’ and ‘foe’.
