“CNN Tonight” host Don Lemon argued Thursday that liberals and progressives are the “least tolerant” and “most easily offended” when it comes to political correctness.

Addressing Jerry Seinfeld’s rant against “PC culture” on college campuses, Mr. Lemon told listeners of “Black America Web” that Americans have to “stop looking for reasons to be offended,” Mediaite first reported.

“We have to allow people leeway to make mistakes in conversations without calling them racist, bigots, stupid, dumb, sell outs and on and on,” Mr. Lemon said. “Not everyone is going to or do they have to agree with you. In fact, it’s better when people don’t agree with you. That’s how we learn.

“After almost 25 years in the news business, you know who is the most easily offended and the least tolerant: Liberals and progressive — because many of them don’t really want to hear anyone else’s opinion but their own,” he continued. “Here’s a tip: if you only agree with people who hold your same political affiliation or who are of your particular race, gender or ethnicity, you are part of the political-correctness-run-amok problem. You are actually thwarting progress instead of advancing.”
