Lemon spoke with Bryan Stascavage, the Wesleyan student who wrote an op-ed for the college paper titled “Why Black Lives Matter Isn’t What You Think.” Needless to say, it got some pretty fierce blowback from liberal activists on campus, and the student government even voted to cut funding to the paper.

Lemon was a sympathetic voice to Stascavage’s talk of being targeted for merely expressing a different viewpoint and brought up the political correctness issue. CNN contributor Bakari Sellers said he didn’t like Stascavage’s op-ed, but still defended his right to express his views.

Lemon asked, “Are progressives becoming too politically correct… [and] more intolerant than conservatives in some ways?”

 

Sellers said no, though he did remark upon the irony of talking about political correctness with, well, one of the most politically incorrect people on cable news.
