I must have missed the part when this guy was great. He’s been shill and a fraud all of his life. As goofy as the protestors are, they had enough sense to keep this hack from speaking.

I would like to know why the chanting and sparkle fingers (instead of clapping) - - they did the same thing in DC.

Occupy Atlanta. The repetition may be mind numbing so skip to the last minute to see John Lewis leave.

"I must have missed the part when this guy was great."

Agreed...that statement had my head scratching.

Neal Boortz a radio host in Atlanta who knows Rep Lewis, says he must have gotten hit upside the head one too many times.
He is as dumb as Shelia Jackson Lee (They planted a flag on Mars)

I’m surprised. Wonder why the crowd didn’t want him to speak? I would have thought he’d be right up their alley, politically/economically speaking.

FWIW, I read an explanation for repeating the speaker. In many places they are not allowed to use megaphones so repeating the speaker allows the people in the rear, if there's a large crowd, to hear what was said. Make of that what you will.

That’s what I thought at first, but both groups I saw had megaphones (and maybe even speakers...) Whatever it is, it has a high creepy factor.

They are freaking looney toon. The sparkling finger thing was to keep noise down and not drown out speaker. The chant thing, who knows, a method to further brainwash the brainwashed?! These people are seriously mad.

That would certainly detract from the explanation. ;-)

To say the least. Pod people.

From Yahoo Democrats Seek to Own 'Occupy Wall Street' Movement

Please, dear God, let it be so. These protesters, who in some cases have a legitimate gripe, have been usurped by the Left, and now the Democrats want to join the lemmings going over the cliff.

Combine owning this movement with DNC Debbie Wasserman Shultz crowing "We OWN this economy!" and you have given a new meaning to "A Pair of Losers".

Any objective person who viewed the tube had to feel sorry for Rep. John Lewis. I did not have any sorrow for him, just disgust to the low life level he has fallen to!!! The protesters made an absolute fool and buffoon out of Mr. Lewis. I guess age has taken its toll. No....maybe just hanging out with empty suit Obama has turned him into a sad sight and idiot to boot!!! Go figure!!!! You know the old saying: “Birds of a feather flock together!!!” Obama, Lewis, America destroyers at work!!!!

Whatever anyone thinks of Rep. Lewis, it was folly on the part of the nut jobs to dismiss him.

The demonstrators BELONGED to Pelosi. Lewis is part of her competition for control of whatever it is the Democrats still control in the House.

This was Pelosi ambushing Lewis.

Has there been any accusation yet by Lewis that someone in the crowd called out the N-word or spit at him?

Bingo. His reign as one of the pampered, perfumed congressional princes has rendered him irrelevant in any contemporary discussion of America.

I watched the video of this event over the weekend; it reminded me of the boil-plagued Egyptians in “The Mummy” chanting “Imhotep....Imhotep....”

Sorry, I’m prejudiced as one of her constituents.

NO ONE is as dumb, or as racist, as Sheila Jackson-Lee. Queen Sheila being bettered ? Come on !
