Skip to comments.John Lewis: Civil Rights Icon … and a Liar.
Posted on 03/23/2010 7:41:08 AM PDT by SeattleBruce
"Lets be blunt; John Lewis is a liar. He claimed the N-word was shouted over and over at him and yet no camera among the many there has caught anything of the sort. In other words, there is no doubt about it; he was and is lying straight through his teeth. As so is McClatchys William Douglas who filed the story, no doubt knowing full-well that it was false."

I'd say he's due a few emails asking him to support his baseless allegations: http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2010/03/20/90774/tea-party-protesters-call-georgias.html
WASHINGTON Demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol, angry over the proposed health care bill, shouted "nigger" Saturday at U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia congressman and civil rights icon who was nearly beaten to death during an Alabama march in the 1960s.
Here's PROOF this didn't happen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SCs6pSE8_I&feature=player_embedded

Last night on FOX News, BOR said if John Lewsis said it happened, that’s all the proof anyone should need and therefore, it happened.
Another piece of crack investigative journalism by the Spin Zone meister.
Wonder if ALL the TEA PARTY people (did I see BLACK people in the crowd?!?!) in that video could file a class action suit against John Lewis et al for libel and slander?!? Probably wouldn’t go anywhere but it would be great to see these RACISTS exposed for what they are!!! >:-(
If they have proof show it or STFU!
1. The left harbors far more race baiters than the right!
2. The left has far more filthy rich than the right. The RNC has let the Dems get by with all this for so long--plus letting them steal close races.How about a simple ad saying these are the rich you are being warned about, followed by a list with net worth.
I haven’t heard Lewis make that accusation yet. I heard Cleaver, but not Lewis.
BOR is a moron and Lewis is a liar.
John Lewis is a NFG ghoul who has fed off the carcass of MLK for 35 years.
There was a guy in his entourage with TWO cell phone cameras recording the entire thing as they walked through the crowd. If what he says really happened then they guy would have captured it and that video would be all over the news. The guy is a complete liar!
BOR - obsolete.
He and Shep should take a hike.
So, like, what constitutes a “Civil Rights Icon”???
Is it because somebody, somewhere put up a statue of the guy and passersby said, “Whoa....Look, now THERE’s a Civil Rights Icon!”...with the pigeons perching there on the head, doing what pigeons do best, and all that....
Or, maybe he was walking down the street, looked “Iconic”, or “Iconly” (???), you know, and suddenly stopped, standing there, shoulder jutting forward, face to the wind, hair blowing in the wind, confidently facing the uncertain future (or maybe just looking for the bus coming down 9th Street)...
Or, could be he was just sorta, you know, kinda wandering around, shouting “Hey! Civil Rights!!!! Yo! Over here! Getcha Civil Rights right here! Yo! Whitey is the Devil!!!!” to anyone who would listen...
I’m just asking, cause, like, ya know, I MIGHT be a “Civil Rights Icon” too one day, in the future, and I wanna know how a REAL icon needs to act...just in case, like...
I’m just sayin’ is all...
As I posted earlier, I was standing right there and it did not happen. If BOR says it did, then he's a lier too.
I knew this story was BS the instant I read it - saw right through it as the fraudulent, race-baiting, effort to distract the public and elicit sympathy and solidarity from amongst those who were about to vote.
Liars like this will get what they truly deserve - sooner or later!
John Lewis is also a dim bulb; if you’ve ever heard him speak extemporaneously, you would have to agree.
“Last night on FOX News, BOR said if John Lewsis said it happened, thats all the proof anyone should need and therefore, it happened.”
Seriously Bill? Mr. Lewis couldn’t have ‘mis-heard’ something conveniently now, COULD HE HAVE?
BOR - Mr. Irrelevant. Hey Bill, how’s that squishy middle feel? Hey Bill, you still propositioning your staff like a total perv? Bill, they said it was ‘true’ and that’s all we need you PERVERT.
“As I posted earlier, I was standing right there and it did not happen. If BOR says it did, then he’s a liar too.”
Exactly, how could anyone have heard the n word repeatedly, when repeatedly you heard ‘kill the bill’.
/begin massive sar/I suppose they sound alike under certain circumstances?/end massive sarc/
“I havent heard Lewis make that accusation yet. I heard Cleaver, but not Lewis.”
Well, he did. Look at the links above.
I’m just getting ready for da future, after all...
Civil rights who has these so called civil rights anyway?
Not me...I’s be’s a Whitey...
Ive seen video of Cleaver pointing at a guy and saying “You just spit on me”. Conveniently edited out the “spitting” of course. Did anybody else see this or the rest of the video?
It’s funny. I watched the video before and noticed two things.
1. One of the protestors shown in the video is a black woman. If you look at the left side of the crowd as the CBC members make their way through, you will see her inside the crowd. If the protestors were shouting out racial slurs, why would she stay there?
2. I didn’t really hear racial slurs or anybody even come close to the CBC members as they make their way through. John Lewis, if you can recall, imagined somebody shouting “Kill him” as a threat at one of the McCain/Palin rallies. It seems that whenever a large group of Conservatives meet, John Lewis tries to get his face out there by talking about somebody saying something which hasn’t happened.
Somebody need to find that young black Tea Party lady and get her interviewed! There was a young black fellow in the video further back in the crowd of protesters, but she was especially close enough to hear. Those race baiters were provoking the crowd and they got zero and it is recorded...
Where is the arrest of the spitter?
Tar and some feathers would have been more appropriate!
What is it with BOR? He sometimes suspends disbelief, especially of the left, in order to stretch credulity in his quest for "fair and balanced."
O’Smiley is, and has always been, about himself. He plays to audiences and shifts in public opinion, writes books about principles that I doubt he has...He is a squishy moderate, just like Michael Medved is a soft, squishy barely conservative, with all of his “we lose the battle when we call [obama et al...] Marxists, when we call them socialists...” crapola.
We’re fighting socialists, marxists, maoists, and radicalists - period. They hate our beloved republic as founded and as it continued for so long, and it is naive in the face of undeniable evidence to think that they mean no harm, and we can win the day by fighting fair and not openly attacking them and bluntly identifying their deplorably evil and wrongheaded precepts.
Lewis and Frank, Obama, Dingell, Wrangel, and Schumer, they are all so far left that the Constitutional center looks “far right” to them.
O’Reilly and Medved are nearly useless knuckleheads in my opinion...
