Rep John Lewis (D-GA) has been a busy man this week.
First off, he, along with Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) went ahead and slandered President Elect Trump’s Attorney General pick Jeff Sessions as a ra-aaa-acist without a shred of proof. Now, Jeff Sessions is the man who destroyed the KKK in Alabama among his other accomplishments, but so what? After all, he’s a Republican, a southerner and a Trump nominee isn’t he? Isn’t that enough?
Apparently it isn’t enough, not any more, since Jeff Sessions is a cinch to get through his Judiciary committee hearings and become the first honest Attorney General we’ve had in 8 years.
Cory Booker, of course was just looking to raise his profile a little bit, looking ahead perhaps to 2020. But John Lewis appears to have something of a different agenda. He just went public calling Donald Trump’s presidency “illegitimate’ on NBC:
Of course the media went wild with this, because John Lewis is a ‘civil rights icon’ after all, and thus his moral authority is unquestionable,right? So he’s allowed to air wild conspiracy theories without a smidgen of evidence. Because of course, the Democrat media media has a vested interest in branding Trump’s presidency as illegitimate too.
But you have to wonder. Isn’t the Democratic party use of voter fraud, rigging the primaries, having one of their operatives in CNN’s employ feeding debate questions to their candidate and colluding with corrupt elements in the media a conspiracy? Wasn’t all that just a secret plan to obtain a desired result by any means necessary? Or at least it was secret until WikiLeaks made it public.
President Elect Trump responded, as he tends to do, tweeting: “Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!”**
Trump later tweeted: “Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S. I can use all the help I can get!”
He isn’t going to get that from the likes of John Lewis. Like his fellow prog-facists, Lewis wants Trump’s presidency to fail and will do everything in his power to obstruct it and keep blacks on the Democrat Plantation.
Does anyone remember the last time Rep. John Lewis made national headlines?
This was during the Tea Party protests in Washington over ObamaCare being shoved through, ignoring all Senate and House rules with the Republicans literally locked out of the room. That’s John Lewis next to then Speaker Pelosi, with his hand on the gavel. He was there in that prominent position for a specific reason, as we’ll see.
They walked through the crowds of protesters with the media in tow, deliberately hoping to provoke a confrontation.
Afterwards, Lewis and Rep. Andre Carson claimed they were abused with ‘racial epithets’ repeatedly during their little stroll, and the media made it headline news for weeks. After all,John Lewis, civil rights icon. Ra-aaa-acism!
Andrew Breitbart (Z’L) who was at the Tea Party protests offered $100,000 to anyone who could come up with a video or audio clip of anyone calling Lewis or Carson racial epithets. Aside from the heavy media presence (they were so hoping for an incident) there were a large number of private individuals videotaping the event. There’s literally no way that anyone calling either congressman racial epithets could have gone unrecorded.
Andrew Breitbart’s money was never paid out, for the simple reason that nothing like that occurred. After pushing the story on the front pages for weeks, even the New York Times finally printed a grudging retraction along the lines of Dan Rather’s ‘false but accurate’ defense – in the back of the paper, underneath a totally unrelated story.
John Lewis simply lied about it, knowingly and with specific tactics in mind. But, you know, civil rights icon and all, so no one asked him to retract anything.
He’s using exactly the same tactics here, calling Jeff Sessions a racist and Trump’s presidency ‘illegitimate.’ And the media are running with it because it matches their agenda.And this isn’t new. John Lewis has a history of pulling this crap.Aside from the above instances:
