Rep. John Lewis Finds KKK More Redeemable Than Republicans

Rep. Lewis deserves accolades for standing up for his beliefs decades ago but he also deserves criticism for what he has become as he helps lead a city ranking in the top ten murder capitals of the world.

Rep. Lewis Can Forgive the Klansman Who Beat Him But Not Trump

Rep. Lewis recalled the words of Martin Luther King Jr. when he forgave the KKK lunatic who beat him. He said “hate is too much of a burden to bear”. “It is the power in the way of peace, the way of love,” Lewis said. “We must never, ever hate. The way of love is a better way.”

Lewis was attempting to contrast his “forgiveness” and “love” mantra while showing the opposite towards Trump. Very ironic!

This past Sunday Lewis said about forgiving Trump, he believes in forgiveness, but added, “it’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”

Lewis Lied About Never Boycotting an Inauguration

Lewis is a bald-faced liar. He missed George W. Bush’s inauguration because Lewis said Bush “isn’t the true elected president.”

Rep. Lewis Compared GOP to Nazis

When Bill Clinton signed the bill ending a federal entitlement to welfare, John Lewis not too subtly raised the specter of fascism as he literally screamed on the House floor, “They’re coming for the children. They’re coming for the poor. They’re coming for the sick, the elderly and the disabled.” Lewis’s comment paraphrased a famous passage by Rev. Martin Niemöller, who was in the resistance against the Nazis.

McCain Is George Wallace (a Bigoted Democrat)

In the 2008 presidential election, Lewis suggested Republican John McCain was a throwback to George Wallace, who Lewis seems to forget was a Democrat. “What I am seeing reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history. Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse. George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights. Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama.

Mitt Romney Will Bring Back Segregation

He went after Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012, claiming if elected he would bring back segregation: “I’ve seen this before, I lived this before,” he claimed, after extensively describing his activism in Southern states in the 1950 and 1960s. “We were met by an angry mob that beat us and left us lying in a pool of blood. Brothers and sisters, do you want to go back? “Or do you want to keep America moving forward?”

Lying About the Tea Party

I was in DC in 2010 when Rep. Lewis and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus lied and said tea party demonstrators used the “n” word as they walked to the Capitol.  They deliberately walked through the crowd instead of using the tunnel. I walked along with them and the worst thing said was, “Kill the Bill” (Obamacare). “It surprised me that people are so mean and we can’t engage in a civil dialogue and debate,” Lewis claimed. There were cameras and videos everywhere, Andrew Breitbart offered $100,000 to the United Negro College Fund to anyone who could document it. No one could because it never happened. Another congressman said someone spat on him. That was 100% untrue.
There’s much more, including his vicious ad hominem attack on Senator Jeff Sessions last week.

One does have to wonder about Mr. Lewis. Democrats lynched his friends and neighbors, burned crosses in their yards, firehosed him, sicced dogs on him, hit him in the head with a brick … Why would he become a democr… wait a sec. Hit him with a brick. 
In the head.
I think not.
