John Lewis is a Hero (and a Douchebag)

largemouth-bass-underwater 150310074320-john-lewis-selma-bridge-50-years-exlarge-169

Separated at birth?


It’s not either/or.

Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) is a bonafide civil rights hero.  In fighting for civil rights and an end to segregation he was arrested and/or beaten many times.  For that he deserves respect and honor.  He has received numerous honors and awards for what he did when he was a young man.

But that was 50 years ago.  Since then he has been an ultra-liberal hack politician and has been occupying a Democrat safe seat in Congress since 1987.  He is a douchebag.

Those two things are not mutually exclusive.

Charles Rangel (D-NY) and Duke Cunningham (R-CA) are both war heroes.  Both men served in the US Congress.  Both men are crooks.  Rangel was censured by Congress.  Cunningham was sent to prison.  Both men are now “retired”.

A couple days ago John Lewis said that Donald Trump is not a legitimate President.  (That wasn’t the first time he claimed a President wasn’t legitimate.)  Trump responded by saying that Lewis was a bad congressman.

Now the usual suspects are outraged and upset that Trump would dare to impugn the integrity of a civil rights icon.

I say fuck John Lewis.  Nobody gets a free ride forever.  If he wants to throw punches he’s gotta expect to get hit back.  Anyone who attacks or insults Trump should expect him to respond in kind.  He’s a counterpuncher.


As of this writing there are 5 days, 5 hours, and 22 minutes until Donald Trump is President.

  1. We are currently at 3,984,309 hits. It doesn’t look like we will hit 4 million until February.

  2. I am currently watching Heartbreakers. Very funny movie. Gene Hackman is hilarious.

    Didn’t lewis say Tea Party spat at him and called him an n word when he and Nancy put on their show/ walk gavel in hand about ACA.

  5. Here’s a dirty little secret of politics: A lot of people don’t GAF about ideology as long as they are getting what they want.

    • elliesmom says:

      There are a lot of memes going around that say Trump’s election is a repeat of how Hitler duped people. My response is to ask the folks posting one of them how they’re sure they haven’t been the ones being duped, and maybe Trump’s election is the people pushing back against the Nazis. The responses show they don’t care how they get what they want as long as they get it. The moral superiority is nauseating.

      • Somebody says:

        I don’t get the Trump is Hitler meme. Honestly, these people are so ignorant of history and so one dimensional and lazy. Crack open some books, read some history, then come back and we can have an honest debate sheesh.

      They’re planning a “gay dance party” outside Pence’s house in MD. They do know he and his family won’t be home, right? Are they planning to burn his house down or just annoy his neighbors?

    • Lulu says:

      The anti-Trump protests worked so well with the election they are going to do it again. /s

    • kanaughty says:

      The second there is property damage done, it is no longer a protest, it is now a riot. Jail is their consequence, too bad so sad 😉 not!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Just heard Chris Wallace on Fox defend Lewis and should be “untouchable” for criticism ? Trump shouldn’t have sent him a mean tweet. *Scratching my head* Didn’t Lewis fire the first shot across Trump’s bow? I think Trump had the right to defend himself and point out the hard truth that Lewis’ district is a mess. (His district has a black majority, a real journalist would check it out before he spewed out the American Icon nonsense).

  7. DeniseVB says:

    John Lewis has become the poster boy for term limits. Dems need to clean their own swamp and rebuild stat !

  8. Anthony says:

    Typical Democrat Prog strategy: pick a fight and then cry victim. Fuck Lewis. Hes nothing more than a lackey who mindlessly and obediently follows marching orders from his DNC masters.

    The First Amendment gives all Americans the right to speak freely, even shit stirrers like Lewis. If Lewis is such an “upstanding patriot who defends American vakues” (per one of his early morning talk show supporters), then he should add ‘honoring the electoral process’ to his list of values to defend.

  9. Somebody says:

    John Lewis is stuck in the past, like a lot of civil rights leaders. His entire “testimony” was basically I grew up in rural southern Alabama and these things happened to me by white racists. Jeff Sessions grew up in southern Alabama not far from me….therefore Jeff Sessions is racist because he’s white and from Southern Alabama. The irony was rich.

    I don’t in any way mean to diminish what he or any blacks experienced. It was real and it was wrong, more importantly a lot of the policies were sanctioned by the state. Mr. Lewis along with others stood up, spoke truth to power and demanded equal treatment under the law. They were right and just and thank God many others joined them and they were successful. We are a better country for it.

    The only institutional racism left in this country is reverse discrimination in the name of diversity. The civil rights movement was about institutional racism and equality of opportunity. It was not about equality of outcome or creating perpetual victims. It certainly wasn’t about dog whistles, riots and cop killings, smh.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Uh, oh …. kinda sounds “guilty” to me. I read Obama may give the Clintons a “pre-emptive” pardon so they won’t be harassed by meanie Trump’s DOJ.

      • NewOrleans says:

        The pardon will only shield her from federal charges, not state ones. She’s screwed if a state goes after her.

    • votermom says:

      oh no, if the CGI shuts down thousands of people in Africa will die!
      isn’t that one of the BS claims the Dems were saying last year?

      • lateblum says:

        Haiti, per my obot sister. Because doncha know, CGI has done “much good” and “saved many hundreds of thousands of lives” throughout the world.
        Derp

    • AFVet says:

      Can’t wait to hear their excuse for that.
      Maybe the donations have dried up.

      • lateblum says:

        Maybe if they shut down, there’ll be no there there.
        It’s hard to investigate something that doesn’t exist.
        And when the time is right, they’ll simply open another “initiative” with a new name.

        • AFVet says:

          Good point.

        • Constance says:

          Yes, Shut CGI down before Obama is gone, get pardon, open new scam. If they don’t shut down and there is something illegal about them then a second after the Obama pardon they will be in violation of the law again and need another pardon which won’t come from Trump. Obama can’t pre pardon them for what they do the second after the pardon going forward.

    VIOLENT FAR LEFT THUGS Publish Target List on DeploraBall Organizers – Including The Gateway Pundit

    The protesters also announced plans to shut down the parade and harass people attending the Trump Inauguration.

    You can hear the fascists cheering in the background as they announce their plans to shut down the Inauguration.

  12. DeniseVB says:

    Just a reminder for John Lewis.

  13. swanspirit says:

    John Lewis used to be a hero. At one time he worked and sacrificed for civil righrs Now he is just playing politics. And not very well.Now he is just another political hack.

    redid my weekly wrap up to be more visual

  15. DeniseVB says:

    Well, this explains Cory Booker …. protecting his gravy.

    • AFVet says:

      Wow, and you wonder how they get rich in office.
      This is the kind of info that should be exposed by the Trump administration when they attack him for being rich.

    • AFVet says:

      Trump has stated that he is going to go after big pharma,…. maybe that’s why all their panties are in a bunch.

  16. helenk3 says:

    I brought this up from downstairs

    http://soopermexican.com/2017/01/14/flashback-when-occupy-wall-st-insulted-john-lewis-and-nobody-cared/

    a little bit of interesting history. I guess it depends on who does it if it is a major insult

    • DeniseVB says:

      There’s so many examples of Lewis’ hypocrisy in going after Trump. I remember when he threw Hillary under the bus in 2008 to support Obama.

      • lateblum says:

        Yes. He and the other members of the CBC. I believe they were led by Cummings. Funny how the bus that ran over Clinton in 2008 seemed to be reversed in 2016. And not one of the CBC said “boo” about it.
        Such a bunch of hypocrites and liars. Frauds, every one of them. Grrrrrrrrr

      • taw46 says:

        He supposedly has known the Clintons since early 1960s and was supporting his close friend Hillary. Until early 2008 when he was threatened by the black community, that they would run someone against him and take his House seat. So he “tearfully” switched his support. So much for morals, loyalty, and doing what is right. I remember it well.

        • DeniseVB says:

          That definitely came from Team Obama. All kinds of dirty tricks during 2008. Dirty tricks are what got Obama into the Senate. Sadly, Hillary didn’t fight it and “made a deal”. Much like Bernie’s done.

  17. AFVet says:

    Well folks it’s getting bad out there.
    Trump has enraged the poets.
    What will we do ?

    http://thevillager.com/2017/01/06/do-not-go-gentle-poets-strike-against-trump-on-jan-15/

    Yep, you heard right, the poets have had enough.

  18. DeniseVB says:

    Looks like the ladies march has a few bumps in the road too.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I hope that’s not a baby boy. That’s crazy feminist I posted the video of wants to kill all baby boys!

      • lateblum says:

        These people are frighteningly evil. It makes me shudder. They should’ve been born in mainland China. Or maybe the can move there now.
        Thousands of women marchers from Chicago have decided to march here instead of there on the 21st.

        • DeniseVB says:

          My sister is going to the one in NYC. Good, less to trip over in DC 😉

          • lateblum says:

            😉 is right.
            My daughter is feeling relief because she’s on the east coast for work until Thursday nite and couldn’t be back on the east coast on the 21st for the march. Now she can roll out of bed and walk a couple of blocks from her apartment to the march in Grant Park. I’m staying away from there. 😱

  19. helenk3 says:

    question

    Lewis insulted the elected future president of the United States and all those who voted for the man. Why no outcry from him to apologize ?
    He says he does not know if he can work with him. Well bunky that is your job. If you can not do go home without pay. You have been too long at the fair.

    • DeniseVB says:

      He should resign if he feels so strongly about the new President. Set an example for the rest of the special snowflakes in Congress. They can be replaced by people who put country before silly party politics.

      • Somebody says:

        I agree Denise he should resign. He shouldn’t compromise his principles, ha! Definitely should set an example. He has a chance to be real leader, lead all the snowflakes and the rino nevertrumpers too. Lead the charge John, meet destiny!

  20. DeniseVB says:

    Charles Blow blows.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Follow the money. He may have done all this just for the fundraising ability.

      • dm says:

        Nothing comes out of the congress critters mouths that doesn’t aim to advance them politically and/or monetarily.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Hmmm. Lewis pokes Trump all week calling him “illegitimate” over some fake news controversies. Trump finally strikes back. Media blows it up defending Lewis. Lewis sends out fundraising letters?

      • votermom says:

        Do you guys remember back before the primaries, there was some whining on the Dems side that Hillary had locked up all the donors? Now that she’s out of the picture, those donors are available for new puppets.
        Obviously Kamala Harris is targeting Climate cult donors.
        Lewis probably wants any BLM ones that aren’t tied up with the Obamas.

    NBA shortening games due to millennial attention spans

    I do not even know what to say. this is the future of this country? we are so screwed

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Having watched countless basket ball games through the years because elder brothers were playing, it is one of the shortest events around and other than time out moves like a video game. What next, make baseball only three innings?

  22. AFVet says:

    • helenk3 says:

      kind of like Custer leaving his men before the Indians attacked

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      His appointment is up at the point his boss changes from Obama to Trump. He refused the offer to stay the course through the initial changeover generally offered by the incoming president. He wanted his 15 minutes of fake news and the WP obliged.

  23. AFVet says:

    Let ’em have it Judge.

  24. helenk3 says:

    I would love to see the seats of the scuzzbuckets in congress who refuse to go to the inauguration filled by wounded warriors who really have sacrificed for this country

    • DandyTIger says:

      And make a big statement about it. The crying sore losers showed their character, so we decided to fill their seats with people that have character.

    I didn’t realize that O’Malley was this much of a loon.

    • Lulu says:

      He is currently unemployed and has few prospects other than rabble rousing. I remember he was begging for his ex-wife to get a better job so he didn’t have to pay as much child support or alimony or something. Times are very tough for Dems for money since the market for their skill set if rather limited right now.

    This would be Virginia !

    Possibly good news for California too?

    This is too funny. After Obama had the Pravda press, a Russian feels angst about the press and Trump.

    I stopped respecting John Lewis when he made that Al Sharpton-y douchebag move in South Carolina back in 2008. Would MLK have made such a move? No way. Lewis is a whiny political activist and troll like any other. Not a national leader of substance.
