"The Republican party can no longer say that they don't agree with the insurrectionists, with the bigots, with the racists, with the white supremacists, with the anti-semites, because that's what they have clearly shown through their actions, especially over the last five years," Lemon said.
Lemon spoke about the public backlash received by Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who was one of few Republican congressmen who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump. Following his vote, 11 of his family members wrote a letter to him, and sent it to conservative lawmakers, mocking him for his vote.
"There is so much there when it comes to that letter, Adam Kinzinger, Republicans, and Trump supporters as a whole," Lemon said.
"With him showing that letter, first of all, they should probably figure out what Christianity really means, and I think that for, I would love to ask Adam Kinzinger that, but he has so far refused to come on the show and take questions.
"But I would like to ask him, where were he, and I'm glad that he's doing it, don't get me wrong, and I think that we should take people where they are and then move forward. But I wanna know where Republicans like Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney... where they were when this stuff was festering in the Republican party for years," Lemon said.
Lemon said that Republicans need to be held accountable for decades worth of sound bites, such as the "welfare queens," which is a citation to Ronald Reagan.
"Willie Horton," who was a man freed on furlough from prison by Democrat Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis in 1986, didn't return to prison as he was supposed to and went on to commit additional crimes, which actions were used to doubt Dukakis when he ran for president in 1988.
"And the birtherism," Lemon said, a reference to the claims made by then-candidate Trump that the former President wasn't born in the US, as all presidential candidates must be. "And all of that, and all of the little things that led up to this moment, where were they?" Lemon asked.
"I think that people need to really answer for those things because we can't just start at the beginning. We can't just start with what happened on January 6, because that was what, a symptom, that was the culmination of something. We can't just start with what happened over the summer, because that was a symptom, a culmination of something."
Over the summer, there were over 100 days of BLM and Antifa riots in every major metropolitan city in the nation, Lemon is just wrong for blaming Republicans for basically everything.
