At the very end Rep. Lewis stalks off. Interspersed in the video are shots of him looking around as if saying "these are the people the DNC wants me to show solidarity with?"

Fifty years later, John Lewis is still getting the crap kicked out of him by Democrats.

WTF. Are these people right out of the re-education camps? Are they insane? What is with the repetition?

Democrats are mistaken if they think they can control these people. They want to co-opt a bunch of anarchists to make their version of the Tea Party.

Basically a hippy crowd is using the "repeat what the speaker says so everyone can hear it" method. They take a vote on whether to allow John Lewis to speak or make him wait till the end like all other citizens there had to do based on the event's schedule.

The crowd, while complimenting him, said he is just as much part of the problem as part of a possible solution and that he is no better than any other citizen at the event and should wait like they have to do.

Like a stopped watch being right twice a day, the crowd got it right making him wait.

Lewis, surrounded by his union goons(look at the t-shirt emblems) refused to wait and stormed off the mall.

I agree with the previous poster, the dems will not be able to control these anarchists any more than the pubs can control the Tea Party. Its time for the true believers to throw off those who want to control their movements. Its left vs right and the middle needs to get out of the way.

CBS Sunday Morning show just did a Puff Piece on the “Occupy Wall Street” crowd, must have run about 10-15 minutes. Everyone understood how the Youths without jobs could be frustrated, Columbia Professor, a stock exchange floor manager, an author, movie star (?) even the ObamaNation in the White House got a clip. No questions or information re background of occupying storm troopers.
Cain had a 3-5 second clip.

This is like elementary school. Leftists are stunted in their maturity anyway, but this takes it to a whole new level.

Somebody led these people to this event by holding their hand and showing them where to sit. Later, they’ll be handing out milk and graham crackers.

The chanting is something they’re all doing. It represents (deep breath) group dialogue so that everyone can hear and they’re all on the same page and that they can reach consensus because in consensus everyone agrees and no none disagrees.

But, of course, as witnessed in the Atlanta video, someone always disagrees and then we wind up with the spinning beach ball.

Not a single soundbite from some nutbag po'testor who was actually seated on the bridge or in the park. NONE. Instead it was a process article about the big mean po'lice, and a cameo from Tony Danza.

They should have to publish producer's names, so they can be called out.

No wonder the Braves crashed in September, something in the air there.
John Lewis looks like he was just went 15 rounds with Sugar Ray Robinson.. whew.

The repeating and hand motions is a method of crowd control. The mind numbed indoctrinated are forced to follow the speaker closely as a group. Anyone with other ideas is quickly spotted. That announcer is a pro.

Wow! Quite the Marxist Indoctrination Exercise they have going on. Where is the fairness in being inflexible? Where is the fairness in not recognizing individuality? And why not recognize individual achievements? How come everyone has to be the same because it wouldn’t be fair if one person actually was better? Whatever happened to good sportsmanship in which one wished they were the best but was happy for and congratulatory of the one who actually was the best. It seems to me if a man is known as a hero and a good guy, and then the man shows up to support your group, you allow him the opportunity to speak and then proceed with the agenda after. The rude “nobody is better than me” people should have been called out as racist for saying a black man can’t be a better person then any of those majority whites in the crowd who voted to push Mr. Lewis to the back of their agenda. Discrimination practiced in the name of democrazy (purposeful spelling error.) Pure democracy is tyranny and oppression which is why the United States is a Constitutional Republic. And yet these dweebs (socially inept people) don’t see it...

I’m glad the Founders had the wisdom to go with a Republic instead of a Democracy. This “Democratic” gathering just denied the right of free speech to a person on the basis of the decision of the mob (instigated by one dissenter.) Democratic gatherings do not protect individual rights.

Although most of us probably think of John Lewis as a Fascist pig, when he was standing there with that group, headed up by Al Sharpton in "white drag", he began looking a bit more normal ~

There are shades of Fascist Pigdom ~

None of those people should be allowed to wander about loose.

Government by concensus. It reminded me of the mob in Rome. Thumbs down the lion ate the Christian etc. The really good news is that this is “in-town” Atlanta. These geeks don’t have an extra can of chili in the cupboard or a gun. They will be in the first die off. The law of natural selection will work in our favor at some point.

Do you equate the tea party with this crowd? I do not belong to a Tea Party but I am not in the middle on this.

These people are acting on the behalf of the DNC. Have you seen one anti Obama poster? These people don't want a revolution they want a coup d'etat by the Executive branch.

Here is a link from the Occupier Mob in NY, using the same cultish chant-and-repeat format. It’s pretty creepy when the speaker says, “I am Mohammed,” and the whole crowd repeats back, “I am Mohammed.”

So it is NOT just a cult group in Georgia. There seems to be a national leadership behind these commie Occupiers.
Real mind control here, folks. Jonestown writ large. That was a Jim Jones mind control technique.

(Jim Jones was a communist, for those too young to remember. He took his cult to Guyana, and when the world closed in, he suicided his flock with cyanide koolaid.)

For what it’s worth with “the repetition”, I read a story about Occupy Haight-Ashbury (I think) where the protesters weren’t allowed to use megaphones, so the crowd repeated everything that was being said so the whole group could hear. I don’t know if this has become SOP at these dramas, but it does seem kinda silly when the speakers DO have PA systems.
