Lewis and Sharpton: The Politics of Race

Standard

John David Wells of the Dallas-based “Wells Report” hit the nail on the head on Monday Night when he said that Congressman John Lewis has now ‘become what he hates the most, a racial bigot.”

Lewis flat out lied when he said that Trump’s inauguration will be the first one he will not be attending; he also refused to attend George W. Bush’s inauguration; coincidently (NOT) George Bush the last white president was also, according to Lewis, an “illegitimate” president.

Lewis is lost in the past. When he last testified in Congress (against Trump nominee Senator Jeff Sessions [another ‘evil’ white man no doubt) Lewis gave a long diatribe recounting all the wrongs done against black people by white people and then attributing all those wrongs to Senator Sessions because Lewis believes he’s still living in the 50’s and 60’s. Lost in the past indeed.

Al Sharpton, Lewis’ fellow time-traveller to the bad old days, is coincidently (again NOT) also calling Trump an illegitimate president. If anything, Sharpton is an even “better” racist than Lewis, he’s more shrill, better known, filled with hate for long since dead ‘white’ people and, like Lewis, actively transferring that hate to upstanding Americans who don’t happen to be black and believe in equality, not in favoritism.
