CNN’s Excitable Don Lemon Wants To “Blow Up The Whole System”

For those of you who are old enough, remember when CNN was a good news station? Now it’s just grade A nutbar

CNN’s Don Lemon suggests to ‘blow up the entire system’

CNN anchor Don Lemon suggested on Monday that radical change is necessary in order for the “majority” to have a bigger say in government.

During his nightly handoff with primetime colleague Chris Cuomo, Lemon floated a solution for the masses who are disenfranchised by both parties.

“We’re going to have to blow up the entire system,” Lemon said.

“I don’t know about that,” Cuomo reacted, who argued that Americans just have to vote.

“You know what we’re going to have to do?… You’re going to have to get rid of the electoral college,” Lemon continued. “Because the minority in this country get to decide who our judges are and who our president is. Is that fair?”

Did he just make the argument that we should not listen to blacks, because they are a minority of the population? That we should ignore Black Lives Marxist, er, Matter?

“You need a constitutional amendment to do that,” Cuomo replied.

“And if Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the courts and they can do that amendment and get it passed,” Lemon shot back.

Let’s see: if Biden wins and the Dems hold the House, it would be necessary to win the Senate with a total of 60 votes, unless Dems plan on getting rid of the filibuster, in order to pass a law allowing more members of the Supreme Court, in order to replace the Judiciary Act of 1869. But, the only way that matters is if the Supreme Court is planning on declaring the Electoral College un-Constitutional. Which they do not have the power to do.

Is that what Excitable Don is positioning? I’ve read things like this in good scifi and thrillers (see Austin Dragon’s After Eden series, which I really wish he’d finish, and In Due Time) and bad ones (often about how the 2nd Amendment is struck down and the military and police just Comply), but, if you think the populace would stand for this, wouldn’t happen, and, without being overblown, would cause a civil war, with Red states essentially seceding.

In order for Congress to pass an Amendment would require 2/3rds of the Senate and House to vote for it, then 3/4ths of the states would need to ratify. Good f’ing luck on that.
