Skip to comments.Rep. John Lewis predicts the return of segregation if Romney wins
Posted on 09/06/2012 8:30:20 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Rep. John Lewis used his Thursday convention speech to argue that a GOP victory in November will send African-Americans back to the early 1960s, when he and other Africans-Americans were forcibly denied access to restaurants, public transportation and the ballot box.
Ive seen this before, I lived this before, he claimed, after extensively describing his activism in Southern states in the 1950 and 1960s.
We were met by an angry mob that beat us and left us lying in a pool of blood, he said to raucous applause from roughly 20,000 delegates and activists.
Brothers and sisters, do you want to go back? he called, prompted a loud response of No!
Or do you want to keep America moving forward? he asked Sept. 6 to raucous applause from roughly 20,000 delegates and activists.

Do they not know how ignorant and backward they appear? They sound like they stepped out of a 1930s movie.
They know, but they really don’t care.
These people ( democrats) are plain mad....... And I do mean the crazy kind of mad!
Lewis is an old racebaiting loon. He’s like a buggy whip. His days are long gone.
No Posining of the wells?
No Return of the Black Death?
How about forcing Autistic School Kids do a live fire reenactment the Battle of Paschendale?
There is no such thing as an allegation too outrageous!
Any lie to scare the crap out of Holder's people and any "white guilt" folks still ignorant enough to believe this crap.
If the collective intelligence of the people listening to this clown could be placed into a container it would appear as if it were a bb in a railroad boxcar.
This superannuated moron should be careful what he wishes for because in the great scheme of things it is white peoples taxes (and other responsible citizens) that keep his race afloat. He’s just another court jester
Most well to do black people are on the public payroll so when they pay taxes they are only kicking back part of their salary
It is a disgrace for him to say such things. Makes a mockery of the past suffering.
Segregation? Why stop there why not slavery and cannibalism and throw in some malaria or ebola.
The idiot masses that listen to him are unaware that the democrats were the ones that kept them on the plantation and in the back of the bus.
He needs to acquaint himself with Col. Frances Rice (Ret.), who shares his pigmentation but not his pea-brain. She wrote an open letter to democrats outlining their bigotry.
In other words,”WE The People”must elect a”Person of Color”to Presidency from here on in or else will will slide back into segregation and RACISM????Whay would Dr. King make of that????I think he’d call it for what it is:”RACISM”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No, that’s NOT all!
Shutting down the liquor industry!
Coffe, tea and sodas with caffeine will have to go!
All Tobacco products- bye-bye!
How about 1916,when Wilson was show”The Birth of a Nation”at The White House??By the way,Woodrow Wilson was an RACIST DemonRaT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What? The Democrats going to take over the South again?
As God is my witness, I will never, ever, ever, ever give a crap a racism ever again.
I’m done. These a$#$holes have cried “Wolf” thousands of times too many.
Legitimate cases of racism will pass through my mind uncared about: I am blanking the entire concept out of my thought process and will refuse to acknowledge it.
Good job, you race-baiting sons-of-bitches.
Yes, then we would put them on an island and watch them capsize.
I feel like I was playing Monopoly and instead of pulling the Advance Token to Boardwalk I pulled the Race Card.
Whereas the Democratic Party has never apologized for their horrific atrocities and racist practices committed against African Americans during the past two hundred years, nor for the residual impact that those atrocities and practices and current soft bigotry of low expectations are having on us today...”
READ it, Mr. Lewis and then, go change your Depends.
The Politics of Desperation
There’s a reason why Lewis’ constituents are at the bottom of the socio-economic barrel . . . they are duped by fools like this.
It was the Republicans that passed the first Civil Rights Act (of 1868, I think), and the Democrats that repealed it.
It was also the Republicans that passed the US Civil Rights Act of 1964, over Democrat objections.
State and local governments were majority Democrat during that period, because Democrats were still seething over the Reconstruction laws imposed by the Republicans.
Liberals like to pretend that these Democrats just joined the Republican party. It didn't happen in Texas -- they hung on to power as long as they could, and were finally replaced in the 1990's.
As that great REPUBLICAN George Wallace said.. “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever”!
Oh wait! He was not a REPUBLICAN! He was of the party that was for SLAVERY and the KKK, A DEMOCRAT!
Libs are skin colorholics. They can’t stop playing the skin color card anymore than a wino in the gutter can stop swilling booze.
LOL, what about Lester Maddox? Democratic Gov of Georgia in the 60’s? I guess they feel IKE was oppressing them too? s/
Wasn’t Bush suppose to put Black Folks back on Plantations if he won in 2000 and 2004, much like Obama, Lewis is nothing, but a broken record!
The unbelievable part is that it works.
Guess what, John....the patient is getting well, and you cannot handle it, because there goes your money train.
This may be a common meme in the leftist black community. My last job used to take me into situations where I was working around fair numbers of people, without actually interacting with them, and on at least 5 occasions, I heard black people state that "if the republicans/Bush/conservatives are elected, they'll reestablish slavery. There was one woman in particular who was crying the day after the results of the 2004 election came down, since her husband, a union shop steward, told her that Bush was going to "reinstate slavery," her words!
I REALLY wanted to slap some sense into those people, but interacting with them at all could have cost me my job. Though it was educational for me. Before that, I didn't realize that people in "the real world" could be so damned stupid and uneducated.
Excellent! Everyone should read & save it
Duh, sounds like Re. Lewis is race-baiting?
BTW, if racial-profiling is against the law, then is race-baiting also against the law?
Sounds like Mr Lewis may have a touch of dementia or be in need of a little R&R in some clinic!
I’m waiting for Lewis to say Romney will pack them all up and send them back to Africa. Thats prolly next.
“What? The Democrats going to take over the South again?”
You’re killing me, lol!
Believe me, all those democrats really believe this crap. They can’t think on their own. Liberals in every town in America will repeat what is said on TV that day. Remember “Selected, not elected”? Now they will start repeating the lies that the republicans want to enslave blacks. All this is planned. They know their base is made up of retarded sheep. Biden’s “chains” remark, Lewis’ crap and the rest.
In fact, a lot of white kids under 50 don't know that.
Would sure stir up some good conversation, and might even get the Republican party some votes.
John Lewis lived in the turmoil of the segregated south, but doesn’t remember the democrats trying to keep him there. He could have been a special name in our history books but, he chose to be a barking dog running in the pack with Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Maxine Waters.
Oh dear, am really not THAT old!:)
If America is so racist, why are you still here? There are almost 200 countries on Earth! Pick one and go there! Or STFU idiot!! I tire of your drivel!!
He’s the racist who falsely charged that he was spit on at the DC Tea Party. He and Nazi Pelosi were so fearful, they walsed through the “terrorist” crowd for a media show.
Lewis is a racist ass-clown.
Whachoo usin fo bait, Louie?
In one way I agree with John Lewis, Black racist that he is. American Blacks after November 6, 2012 will have by their very own votes cast, by their own hands, segregated themselves apart from the American Republic and freeedom culture by becoming adrift at sea, without purpose or direction.
Yep.....its life on the “Obama Economic Slave Plantation” for them for many to come. Now.....please, save us the rants, raves and complaints about your lot in life, you chose it of your own free will. Sad......that these folks cannot see the forest for the trees!!!
It helps that they place a picture of Lewis near stories that report his pronouncements. The guy even looks stupid on top of the look that he just ate something boundlessly unpleasant.
d be happy with taking away EBT cards, eliminating subsidies and public housing, reactivating Glass-stegall and tightening SSI disability requirements and doing away with AA so we never have to suffer from the likes of Bozo ever again.
This is crazy. Because John Lewis was beaten up at Selma, and marched for civil rights and voting rights, it’s like we’re supposed to be shocked and awed by anything such a person says. What he says is ridiculous, but because of who he is, we’re supposed to just accept his absurd prediction of how dangerous a Romney victory would be.
You John Lewis have earned yourself a spot in eternal hell
This is what the dimwits can't comprehend. They think simple property ownership is what creates wealth. Like their boneheaded relatives in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) who ran whites off their farms, they don't understand that it takes intelligence and hard work to generate a functional economy. Zimbabwe and Detroit have much in common.
