John Lewis Haunts Us From The Grave

Black people secured the right to vote over 50 years ago. Blacks vote at higher rates than Asians and Hispanics and exceeded White voter turnout in the 2012 election. A lack of voting for civil rights dinosaurs like John Lewis who served in Congress for 33 years isn’t the problem.

New York Times:

“While my time here has now come to an end, I want you to know that in the last days and hours of my life you inspired me. You filled me with hope about the next chapter of the great American story when you used your power to make a difference in our society. Millions of people motivated simply by human compassion laid down the burdens of division. Around the country and the world you set aside race, class, age, language and nationality to demand respect for human dignity.

That is why I had to visit Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, though I was admitted to the hospital the following day. I just had to see and feel it for myself that, after many years of silent witness, the truth is still marching on. …

When historians pick up their pens to write the story of the 21st century, let them say that it was your generation who laid down the heavy burdens of hate at last and that peace finally triumphed over violence, aggression and war. So I say to you, walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide.”

Has non-violence and peace finally triumphed over aggression, war and violence in cities like Minneapolis, Chicago, Atlanta and Portland? Is this what freedom ringing looks like in those cities?

Have we overcome the burdens of racial division? Have we set aside “race, class, age, language and nationality” to think ourselves as Americans? Is that what John Lewis represented when he served in Congress and accused the Tea Party of spitting on him and calling him a n***er?

All the people who were naive enough to believe that America had “moved beyond race” and was progressing toward a “colorblind society” who were duped by activists like John Lewis in the 1960s now look like fools. It turns out that all that utopian rhetoric was just a con all along.

Note: Barack Obama compared Donald Trump sending federal officers to defend the federal courthouse in Portland from Antifa to Bull Connor’s crackdown in Birmingham in 1963 this afternoon.

  1. The ghost of John Lewis will be as the humanly incarnation was – a manifestation of the great White Dilemma.

    That dilemma?

    Whether Whites can bring ourselves to collectively say : ——

    ‘If you’re not White, that’s fine. Enjoy your life and privileges living with us and, so long as your follow the law and respect our culture, we wish you Godspeed. That said, this IS our country, and, though we’ll be sharing it with you, we ain’t forkin’ it over to you.’

    OR…

    ‘Why, even though we built this country from A-Z, over the last 400 hundred years, it belongs just as much to y’all as it does to us. Here, take it from us and never forget what a loving people we are, as y’all make of it whatever y’all want.’

    Until Whites can consciously opt for #1, we will be working on the 2nd premise, and, with that come a variety of questions…

    A. How long will the country be worth a damn, before it becomes a hellhole?

    B. How long before the violence against White Culture, History, Customs, Law, Faith, and Monuments simply before a physical hooting war against Whites?

    • This is magnificent Ivan. I genuinely think this is one of the most succinct and fair responses I have heard to date. No anger. No slurs. Not unfair. Simple and honest

      • @Captain Schill…

        Thank you so very very much for your kind words and for your support!!

        I read your comments and appreciate them, too, for the fact that they are cogent, yet, gentlemanly.

        WE continue praying for you and yours!

  2. “When historians pick up their pens…” Talk about shitty lower-than-hack writing, jeez. Even when historians did write with pens, they “picked them up”? It makes it sound like they had to laboriously stoop to pick this light-as-a-feather thing (a quill) off the floor after they carelessly knocked it off their writing desk while drunk or distracted.

    • John Lewis was too stupid to write that puff piece in the NYT, it was ghost written and his name was appended to it after he croaked. His obituary should have started something like this: . . . “John Lewis has died. He was thick as a brick and had stupid written on him in six inch letters . . . “

      I cannot stand the lying and hypocrisy. John Lewis was a grifter just like the vast majority of the crowd in DC. His particular grift was the same one MLK, Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al, the NAACP, SPLC, ADL, Urban League etc. used, racial demagoguery. His whole purpose in life was more gibs for his peeps with the alphabet soup of ‘non profits’ (sic) and the select few like himself tearing off the biggest pieces of the gibs as they passed by.

      • @12AX7, a brilliant obit by you and a richly deserved skewering. Dead ( rotting by now?) Anti-White feeder at the public trough Lewis is, in a sense, the perfect “icon” for the current day.

  3. Blacks have a decision to make. Do blacks believe in the teachings of Christ or do blacks follow in the footsteps of the Jews and persecute and torment the innocent? Are blacks civilized human beings or are blacks animals better suited for the jungle? Can blacks forgive the wrongs done to them or must they be savages revenge takers? The Jews are banking on blacks as savage beasts unable to forgive and more than willing to kill the innocent out of some strange sense of justice. Are the Jews wrong? We shall see.

  4. What did this fugly looking jogger do that was so special? He walked across a bridge during a jogger riot? am I missing something here why is he considered a saint?

      • Was it state troopers who beat him up? I dunno but he’s reaching sainthood status for something no one really knows or gives damn about I know the marches were over voting rights and Jimmie Johnsons death thats about all I know

    • Thom, what John Lewis represented was the jewish narrative. Lewis was just another anarchist lite individual who had a sweet gubbermint paycheck for decades because he walked ” muh bridge.” Obviously the name of that ghetto bridge will be renamed the ” John Lewis Bridge.” It’s appropriate in truth.

      The mostly jewish run media and it’s good goys were speaking of Lewis like he was truly a great individual. Instead he supported 1) the mass murder of the unborn. 2) putting homosexuality on the same level as heterosexuality. 3) favored open borders to turn America into a Central American dump. 4) was anti White by never addressing the huge disparity in black on White violence. 5) did very little to address huge black Aids rate in Georgia and black out of wedlock births. I can go on but you get the point.

      A far better guy for black America died. That being Herman Cain. Of course he got far less ( jewish) press. He owned businesses. He was a Christian and not a lip service one. He didn’t constantly want to relive eras long gone. He was pro this nation. Thus, Lewis the bridge taker gets all the hype while the better guy Cain does not.

      It basically sums up the alien takeover of our media, our politics and our movies. The rapidly aging and miserable Obama and his disgusting antics at the Lewis funeral in front of cheering America haters shows us Lewis was one of them and was not ” great” at all. He was simply another black Democrat agitator walking between liberalism and communism. Nothing great in that.

  5. I believe I have found archive footage of the Edmund Pettus Bridge march. It has been restored and colorized.
