Former US Navy SEAL Ephraim Mattos Responds to CNN’s Don Lemon


Recommended Posts

"Here is Mattos’ 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"

About the only thing that would have made that better would have been if he was saying it while punching the ever living **** out of Don Lemon on live television.


Everybody needs a good ass-kicking from time to time to remind them of their place on this mortal coil.

Who is a Don Lemon and who watches TV stations the allow such a person have a program on????

Yes I happen to know the answer to both my questions,,,,  But refuse to watch such and am ready to begin a crusade against TV Producers who show these clips on watchable stations.    There is no need to see what I do not watch.   I think I may begin with FOX.....

When did he say that? Recently? Months ago?

His statements, if races were reversed, would lead to riots and "marches" all over this country.

When did who say what?


Thursday, November 1, 2018 — Former US Navy SEAL, Ephraim Mattos, has responded to comments made this week by Don Lemon on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time.

“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.” Don Lemon on CNN (October 29, 2018)

He has too much time on his hands 

That is one of the main issues of the 24 hour news cycle in television.

They have forgotten how to be journalists.   They have forgotten what one of the greatest editors of all time (Ben Bradlee, Washington Post) said during the Watergate era.

Get of your asses and knock on doors! 

Instead they flap their jaws and wonder if airplanes could fly into black holes like some weird TV show (so glad i don't own a TV).

Don Lemon is a socialist piece of ****.

Who makes at least five times what my buddy makes on his 3rd trip to Asscracistan or 2nd trip to Iraq.

Cry me a river, Don. Better men than you do with a load less in life and don't complain.

Face it. A lot of good people help pave the way for your success.

As your mentor said, "You didn't build this alone."
