Yesterday, Georgia Democrat Congressman John Lewis of Georgias 5th District used the race card tactic with his speech at the Democratic National Convention in pressing points that if Romney wins in November, surely the GOP and Romney will send African-Americans back to the days of segregation.
After three minutes of telling the story of the days of segregation when he and other Africans-Americans were forcibly denied access to restaurants, public transportation and the ballot box, Lewis asked, Brothers and sisters, do you want to go back?
The democratic audience shouted no.
After continuing using race as a reference in relation to voter id laws enacted in some states, he stated, Today is unbelievable. That there are Republican officials are trying to stop some people from voting their changing the rules.
Lewis race comments have been the cornerstone of democrat tactics for many years, but more so in this years elections.
Just last month, Vice President Biden whose numerous gaffes are well known, told an audience who were mostly black at a campaign stop in Danville, Va., that Republicans were "going to put you all back in chains."(continued)

This guy is an idiot
Who can take these people seriously anymore?
Great Caesar’s Ghost! That man sounds AND looks stupid!!!
Incredibly, there are Americans who vote for this guy.
Lewis is nothing but an old, out of date, 60s racebaiting bigot. The days of old commie pigs like him are past. Get a life Johnny! You can’t be a freeloading bigot your entire life! Do something useful for a change.
That’s not a very nice thing to say - about idiots.
Segregation was a democratic party specialty. Especially in Georgia...forget your past and history?
These people are absolutely moronic and childish. We’re in serious trouble in this country.
Is this all you commies have Johnny? Scare tactics?
perhaps Georgia Democrat Congressman John Lewis would like to debate Congressman West.....
You’re demonstrating to us all, John Lewis, why the Dems get away with enslaving blacks like you in America.
Hey Mr. Lewis...the race card jumped the shark a couple of years ago. Ever heard of the little boy who cried wolf? These charges mean nothing to us any more.
If this is all they have; they’re losing the argument.
I assume this means Pelosi and Reid already have the bill for this ready to go.
The sharks between here and Africa are salivating...it’s a scientific fact, don’t’cha know.
Hasn’t Georgia Democrat Congressman John Lewis noticed that a large part of the Black community has already self segregated? Talk about being blind to the truth.
As a Black man, I can say this: It’s time for Black people to grow up and stop being victims. And stop letting the Leftist Whites drag us around like Paris Hilton’s pink chihuahua.
“Who can take these people seriously anymore?”
I am sure there were some Germans in the Weimar Republic who felt the same way about those crazy, lying Nazis.
Those silly Nazis racked up a 6 million body count with the help of a compliant media.
“If you can get people to believe absurdities, you can get them to commit atrocities.” - Voltaire
Nuts like this jerk should be segregated to a nut house.
What troubles me is not a POS like this guy; what bothers me there are a majority who reelect him.
A shark was recently spotted following a cruise ship.
Curiously on it's back was scrawled
'Once u eat black u never go back'
Just when you think John Lewis couldn’t say anything more stupid he outdoes himself.
Great Get it on,I thought we already had Segregation,You Know the Congressional Black Caucus,Nation Of Islam.
As the great Walter Williams said, segregation was a true example of Big Government at work. It was a system that had to be imposed by the state. Naturally without the state, people of all races and creeds would have interacted in all facets of life. That is why the Statists of the Democrat Party at the time had to impose their will. If segregation was natural then the Statists would not need to pass any laws, which they did.
One of the lies of our time is that the Segregationists were so called “Conservative” Democrats. There was nothing Conservative about them. The Southern Democrat of that time was 100% behind the New Deal Socialist agenda. Big Government was their ideology in matters of race and economics. There was nothing Conservative about them.
Imagine the reaction if a Republican had said “If Obama wins, blacks will feel free to riot, murder, and rape white folks!”
“Incredibly, there are Americans who vote for this guy”
Yeh, I’d drive you through his district except we wouldn’t make it out alive.
Oh those NAZI’s killed a lot more than 6 million, that was just the jewish body count and that wasn’t half of it.
