Extreme leftist Congressman John Lewis of Georgia claims to be a staunch defender of Civil Rights, but, just like Al Sharpton, he clearly just enjoys being an opportunist and pushing people’s buttons to stay in the spotlight.
Lewis never misses a chance to insert himself into controversial situations and say outrageous things to further divide our country. During a recent college commencement speech he was asked to give, Rep. Lewis just encouraged graduates to do something that will clearly make our country worse.
In his speech at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, Lewis kept making references to his heyday in the 1960’s, and said that under Democratic President John F. Kennedy, “There was a greater sense of hope and a greater sense of optimism. We must rebuild that sense of hope, that sense of optimism and never let anything get you down.”
He then boasted about his criminal record while in Congress, saying, “And since I’ve been in Congress, arrested another five times. My last arrest, almost two years ago, and two other private citizens and eight Democratic members of Congress had a protest on the Capitol grounds, trying to get the speaker of the House to bring forth a comprehensive immigration reform bill. … It doesn’t make sense for millions and millions of people, including little children, to be living in fear in the United States of America. Set people on the path to citizenship!”
Instead of preaching peace in our country that was ripped apart along racial lines under Barack Hussein Obama, Lewis’ advice for the new graduates was, “Go out there, get in the way, get in trouble—good trouble, necessary trouble and make some noise. Our country needs you now more than ever before. When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have a moral obligation, a mandate to stand up, speak up and speak out.” Why does he think it’s a good idea to rile up liberals like this?
