THE REAL JOHN LEWIS
What all the tributes to John Lewis, when he died, leave out are the inconvenient truths about him. This is a man who led a front group for the Communist Party in the United States and who lauded a known Communist – Paul Robeson who happened to be a big fan of Stalin, who killed more people than Hitler. Lewis handed off leadership of that Communist front to someone equally radical – Stokely Carmichael. He was a co-sponsor of another Communist front group “ACall” that grew out of the movement to free Angels Davis.
This is a man that despite his 24 arrests, fractured skull, and “warm wounds” in the civil rights struggle of the 1960s has been openly endorsed by the Democratic Socialist of America and who published articles in Communist Party papers. In 1989, Congress condemned the Nicaraguan Communist Sandinistas by a 379-29 vote. Guess who was among the 29? He is a handful of Congresscritters who have praised Fidel Castro and Cuba. To gain an understanding of this ‘saint’s” mindset, John Lewis said this on the House floor in 1995:
“They (Republicans) came first for the Communist, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews… trade unions… Catholics… Protestants… They are coming for the children. They are coming for the poor. They are coming for the sick, the elderly, and the Disabled.”
Lewis is not afraid of invoking the name of Martin Luther King, Jr. if it suits his political agenda. In fact, he often does in many contexts. With immigration, he said this:
“…if Dr. King were here today, he would be traveling and preaching all across America (to promote) comprehensive immigration reform to legalize millions, on grounds that there is no such thing as a illegal human being.”
Regardless of what Dr. King would have said, at the end of the day John Lewis is nothing but a race baiter who parlayed his name into a House seat. He is no different than Al Sharpton or Rhymin’ Jesse Jackson – race hustlers who see a racial bogyman behind every tree. John Lewis was no more a saint than George Floyd. At best, he was a Socialist; at worst, a Communist dupe. Give him praise for enduring a fractured skull and defiantly walking over a bridge, but that is all John Lewis accomplished in his life. He was a man who lived and breathed through a racial prism who saw racism everywhere while none existed. He is the one who still was still living in the days of Jim Crow.
And this man was allowed to lie in state in the rotunda of the United States Capitol.

WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, and we had better do it soon.”
“YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS S**T UP” Category
The moron America hating Democrats chose Andrew Cuomo to speak concerning the coronavirus and John Kerry to speak concerning foreign affairs at their convention. Cuomo signed the order that sent Covid-19 affected people into nursing homes and Kerry was instrumental in implementing the Iran nuclear deal.
AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
Watching the video of the man being beaten senseless in Portland, Ore by BLM reminded me of the films showing the brown shirts in NAZI Germany beating the hell out of the Jews.
A SIMPLE THOUGHT FOR TODAY
