Rep. John Lewis Wants To ‘Take
A Bullwhip’ To People So They
Care About Civil Rights

Daily Caller, by Liam Clancy

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 9/21/2017 6:24:50 PM

Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes

Comments:
I don´t have to ask the usual question, what if.......do I. Quite frankly, I´m sick of hearing about civil rights. You would never know they are catered to unlike any other class of people in this country and it´s getting extremely tiresome.

John Lewis hasn´t done a thing for the people of his Congressional District except to stir up resentment and anger. Maxine Waters is another one, e.g. the public schools in her district are the worst in California (which is saying something, California´s are near the worst in America). When will Black Americans rid themselves of these self-serving frauds?

It’s a shame that today’s civil rights leaders have forgotten the lessons of Martin Luther King and the value of non-violence. It’s hard to listen to people when they are doing harm and destroying property.

Affirmative action, like every other crutch invented for the black race, is a huge failure and couldn´t possibly go far enough for them to reach self subsistence let alone success.

All it does is make it much harder to fire them when the inevitable poor job performance can no longer be tolerated.

The thing is -

I am trying to picture Rep. John Lewis attempting to handle a bullwhip effectively -

you have to be in some kind of condition, those things are really rather heavy, solid strips of leather -

you have to have the shoulders, back, arms, to lift that thing back up in the air and bring it around with a fearsome snap - more as a signal to your team of mules or oxen to heed your direction, as a form of communication - while you are also steering and braking a wagon heavy full of ore, logs, or rails along a steep grade -

but Rep. Lewis sees the use of a bullwhip as something with which to threaten other people with violent means - nice -

but Rep. Lewis looks to me like he couldn´t even snap a Pop Tart.

The last paragraph should excite some more riots.

This man has ridden on the coattails of MLK for years. Equality ? You don´t want equality, you want more undeserved rights and special treatment. White privilege? We should all hope to have the privileges bestowed upon minorities for just showing up. I would not even want to be a fly on the wall at a Black Caucus meeting full of hate and racism.

This nation is as diversified as it will ever be; it is time to end Affirmative Action.

The self-described “strategic intelligence” firm Fusion GPS that was behind the controversial anti-Trump dossier has a track record of intimidation and smear tactics, according to congressional testimony and the firsthand account of a London-based Venezuelan journalist who said he was labeled a “pedophile,” “extortionist” and “drug trafficker” after criticizing one of Fusion’s clients. “I believe that Fusion GPS’s business is to do basically whatever the paymasters tell them to do,” Alek Boyd, the Venezuelan journalist, told Fox News in his first American TV interview. “They are particularly good at spreading misinformation, disinformation and smears.” Boyd says he was targeted after

Actor and producer Rob Reiner on Tuesday equated allegations previously made against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to those made against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski asked Reiner about Weinstein, and if the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against him were the norm when it comes to how the movie industry and Hollywood operates. "Here’s the thing," Reiner said. "Harvey Weinstein´s disgusting, let’s just say that. But Fox News had that, Clarence Thomas – I think what we’re doing now, is it’s lifted this thing and put it front and center in a big way."

Julian Assange is fuming at Hillary Clinton after she attacked him during her recent appearance on an Australian news show. In the exclusive interview with Four Corners, a long-running news/documentary program in Australia, Clinton alleged that Assange colluded with Russia to disrupt the 2016 U.S. election and torpedo her candidacy for president. Said Clinton in the softball interview that aired Monday: Assange has become a kind of nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator. ...

We´ve done it. We´ve found the worst response to the growing and increasingly awful Harvey Weinstein sex scandal. Behold: New York Times opinion columnist Michelle Goldberg, who wrote this week, "The movie business is corrupt, depraved and iniquitous — and still morally superior to the Republican Party under Trump." Impressive. She identified a bad thing, and then identified a second bad thing so as to mitigate the sins of the first. We didn´t think we´d see someone from the Times downplay the Hollywood scandal this soon, yet here we are. "Betraying the principle of gender equality is bad. Rejecting it

The much-publicized Tuesday meeting between NFL officials, team owners, NFLPA officials and several players lasted about three hours. While there was undoubtedly a lot discussed in that time, it sounds as though there has not been a resolution on a rule change to require that players stand for the national anthem before games. A statement released jointly by the NFL and NFLPA called it a “productive meeting,” and that there will be another session in the future: Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality

Thanks to a two-decade surge in immigration, a greater share of the U.S. population is foreign-born than at any time in the past century, according to a new report. Last year, 13.5 percent — about one in eight– of U.S. residents were immigrants, the highest percentage in 106 years. In absolute terms, the U.S. was home to about 44 million immigrants, the most in the country’s history. A huge slice of the immigrant population has arrived over the last 16 years, according to a report from Steve Camarota and Karen Zeigler of the Center for Immigration Studies.

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so.

He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression.

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to
