John Lewis: Civil Rights Icon and a Liar.
RedState.com ^ | 3/23/2010 | Martin Knight

Posted on 03/23/2010 7:41:08 AM PDT by SeattleBruce

"Let’s 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 McClatchy’s William Douglas who filed the story, no doubt knowing full-well that it was false."

Here's the guy that helped perpetuate this LIE. http://www.mcclatchydc.com/145

William Douglas wdouglas@mcclatchydc.com

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!!! >:-(

BOR and Lewis are both A-Holes and they think if you yell that at them it’s the same thing.

If they have proof show it or STFU!

The left's Holy Grails--racism and class envy.

Refutation:

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.

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!

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, that’s 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.

Exactly, how could anyone have heard the n word repeatedly, when repeatedly you heard ‘kill the bill’.

Well, he did. Look at the links above.
