Rep. John Lewis Heralds Changing Electorate: ‘Minority Will Become Majority
mediaite.com ^ | August 25, 2013 | Evan McMurry

Posted on 08/25/2013 2:51:31 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Upon the anniversary of the March on Washington, John Lewis spoke to Meet the Press’ David Gregory about the legacy of the civil rights movement Sunday morning, encouraging America to embrace, not fear, the shifting demographics of the electorate that would put minorities in a place of political power.

“I think some forces want to create this sense of fear,” Lewis said. “They think that the country is moving too fast, or maybe becoming too progressive. The country’s not the same country. People are coming together. And in a short time, the minority will be the majority.”

Lewis is the sole surviving speaker of the 1963 march, and a longtime Democratic representative from Georgia.

“Is there backlash that comes with that?” Gregory asked.

“As Americans, we must be prepared to make that adjustment,” Lewis said. “Be courageous. Embrace the change.”

With hispanics being the biggest group of all and blacks finding themselves at the bottom of the totem pole one more time.

If and when “they” become the majority, I’m going to demand my rights and my affirmative-action advancement. Dude...where’s my free phone and EBT card???????

It will be wonderful!

We will have an entire nation of unskilled freeloaders who will vote themselves into entitlement prosperity!

No one will work but everyone will be rich!

And those angry, old, white men will finally be put in their place!

Oh, he must be talking about that monolithic voting block called “Hispanic” who will all vote for Democrats. He doesn’t know shinola!

I continue to expect a full court press for reparations and major redistribution of wealth as soon as the 2014 elections are over whether or not the Democrats capture both the House and Senate. This is the “change” Lewis wants us to embrace.

“Be courageous. Embrace the change.”

A change from a representative Republic under a constitution and God to some twisted, impoverished utopian nightmare with a Stalinist federal government.

There will be no majority - not white, not black, not hispanic or asian.

Nor will there be a majority to brow beat for goodies. Just a whole lotta people who don't give a crap about Emmett Till.

Think about that for awhile, Lewis.

And in a short time, the minority will be the majority.

And considering where many of them are coming from, that may not be the most desirable attribute of their becoming the majority.

Shacks, huts, ghettos, slums, etc. How many of their parents and grandparents left those kinds of conditions only to find themselves in similar conditions in overcrowded cities? How many are dodging drive-by shootings from their own kind in Chicago, Detroit, Fresno and LA, etc.?

[I never have understood the thinking of those who came here 'to escape poor conditions in their former homeland' only to try to turn their current 'home' into the same kind of condition they left.]

I must say, however, no one swallowed more birth control pills, with more zeal, than the white girls “liberated”.

With both hands we cheerfully eradicated ourselves, our future and our heritage. Paying the piper time has arrived, leaving us in ruinous, lasting consequences.

Sadly, he is correct. I wonder if some of us, even though we proclaim to, know just how close to the end America is. This isn’t like any other time. This isn’t about convincing people of the way we think (though we should). This is about a fundamental, and titanic, change in American demographics. None of these new “groups” are Conservative or GOP. Just look at CA. The GOP is dead that and it ain’t coming back. And it is 100% because of the demographic change.

Sometimes, empires fall. I’m not about giving up by any means, I will fight for my beliefs. But only a fool doesn’t see the handwriting on the wall.

Will have??? We already do, the takers now outnumber the makers. They will just keep voting themselves more free stuff until we end up like Greece; then they’ll all riot not understanding why the free stuff must come to an end.

Was this interview conducted in French by any chance? I suspect not thanks to the fact that Lewis can barely speak *English*.As for his prediction,if that happens *every* city and town in the nation will soon look like Detroit.

Or Guadalajara.

But then I'm just a creepy a$$ cracker so what could I possibly know?

I did national radio back in the late 80s about this demographic change (when there was a chance to stop it) & this radio host had millions of listeners & guess what ? We would go hours without getting a phone call, or response. Americans had no will, then or now, to survive. So here we are today nearing the end....

Yep. Somewhere along the way, big families became frowned upon. Women decided to pursue their dreams — and they didn’t include having more than 1.5 children, or any at all.

Not sure if it was feminism or materialism, but both have had their way with this country.

So why do we continue to bring in 1.2 million legal immigrants a year, 87% of whom are minorities as defined by the USG?

The reality is that 53% of Hispanics self-describe themselves as white.

Immigration is the biggest driver of our population growth. In 1970 one in 21 was foreign born. Today it is one in 8, the highest it has been in 90 years.

Oh goody! Then will we be like Boston, a majority minority city? What exactly IS a majority minority? I want to go back to when words had meanings. Liberals are against freedom, marriage means... well pretty much whatever you want it to mean. And a majority can be a minority.
Personally I’m going to start learning one of the Chinese dialects, they will be able to walk in and take over soon and their words still have meanings (I think).

I invite you all to read VDARE.COM, a website which explores these issues daily, with useful material you can’t find on the Mainstream Media or the “conservative” media. VDARE.COM explores mass immigration, non-assimilation, citizenship issues, anti-White discrimination, racial issues, in short the “National Question” which is transforming your country and that of your children and grandchildren.

Yes because the Chinese/Asian middle class loves the ghetto.

And everyone knows about Mexican and blacks.

Los Angeles is the future of blacks in this country and it ain’t pretty. Whites are doing just fine, even though they are a minority.

“With hispanics being the biggest group of all and blacks finding themselves at the bottom of the totem pole one more time.”

That already has happened here in California. The Blacks “helped” the Hispanics get elected. After the Hispanics became a power here, they told the Blacks essentially to FO! Blacks are the bottom of the barrel here, and they will soon be everywhere else if they aren’t already. Particularly if they continue to murder “white people,” because the Hispanics relate a lot more to whites than they do to blacks.
