On Wednesday’s broadcast of “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC, Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis invoked the civil rights movement to rally support for increased gun control legislation. “Well, now is the time to act,” Lewis said. “It’s not a time for a commission, or more studies. It is time for action. It reminded me of another period, 1968, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. Robert Kennedy was assassinated. We can go back to 1963, when Medgar Evers was assassinated. We don’t need more weapons of mass destruction. Nothing saddened me more than last Friday.
Comments: Someone really needs a history lesson. The guns are the reason they aren´t coming, for now...
King George wasn´t the only one with a tyrannical government. Americans need to be vigilant with the current government. The first and second amendments are under attack right now, Obamacare is UNconstitutional, no matter what John Roberts has to say. We have a dysfunctional government.
"When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
Lewis (once again) makes a great case for term limits.
YOU have hit the BULLSEYE Award #4...you are right on spot. And any government official that tries to dismantal the constitution in any way or form falls right into the catagory of the Brits back then in my book. Against ALL enemies foriegn AND DOMESTIC!
Lewis is proof you don´t have to be smart to get elected into Congress. He is nothing more than a Sharpton/Jackson race hustler and he makes a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth. This being NO exception.
From now on I think I´ll respond to each and every single asinine opinion, comment, proposal, rant, and general utterance from the lunatic left with a short expletive instead of an intelligent and thoughtful dialog. After all, that´s all it´s worth and they aren´t interested in hearing anything intelligent or engage in a real discussion in the first place.
What we don´t need, Rep. Lewis, are all these irresponsible people littering the landscape with broken, fatherless families... of all races. And we don´t need more ghoulish, fat-cat, opportunistic gun-grabbers like yourself.
John Lewis from GA - and I now have a gun to protect myself from all your ´kind´ that are robbing and thieving and killing in my county. The county turned minority, and with that, came all the crime and scum.
What used to be the top 2 highschools in the entire state, now don´t even rate. All because of minority infestation.
Sorry, but I grow more weary and tired of John Lewis´s kind spewing stuff all the time.
Get over it! Comments like these from Lewis make me despise them more.
Actually, ´´Freedom Isn´t ´Free,´´ Rep. Lewis, but must always be protected & defended! -Remember your oath of office?! This is a country of laws based upon Constitutional principles for securing & maintaining Life and Liberty. The Founders in their Wisdom secured the Bill of Rights for each INDIVIDUAL American. Self defense is basic for each individual´s freedom. ...Look it up!
Since the Civil War ended in 1865, why does Lewis´s dem party, currently led by 0bama, use rhetoric more suited to at least 150 years ago than in the here-and-now twenty-first century?!! ...What´s up with THAT, Rep. Lewis? The dems & 0bama preach, ´´FORWARD,´´ but they seem stuck in history from ages past. Sometimes 0bama gets up to the ´30s and all that union rhetoric, but that is about as recent as he ever gets. mmm mmm mmm
When bad things happen the liberal response is always to tax, ban, or regulate. Their hope is that people will be too heartbroken to notice they´re more poor, less free, and increasingly burdened with a behemoth government that still can´t keep bad things from happening.
No, the Brits learned their lesson, but the SEIU, New Black Panthers, Occupier scum and other leftist groups advocating and inciting violence against us may be a different matter entirely. We see it and hear it every day.
This is the liar who claimed protesters called him names when they did not. Besides being an outright liar, he is an oath breaker who should be impeached for not defending the constitution. Too bad lying and taking an oath aren´t what they used to be, but that is how progressives want it.
What we don´t need are ignorant, indoctrinated Representatives in Congress. I tell you what John, why don´t you just wait and let Tim Scott give you a lesson in history and the 2nd amendment? You´ll find this country´s history began long before the civil rights era.
Two questions for Rep. Lewis: 1) After you repeal the 2nd Amendment, which one are you going after next? 2) How can you reconcile your desire to throw out the Constitution with your sworn oath of office to defend that Constitution?
He´s not riding on anyone´s coattails. He´s a genuine civil rights hero in his own right - an American hero. Not that I´ve ever voted for him, but he´s my congressman and he´s come up with a catchy line here.
It would be wonderful to find a non-leftist to replace him, but in this district - fat chance!
The British aren´t coming but if Barry and his demonrats have their way, the muslims sure are. The only thing deterring them is the same thing which deterred the Japanese --a gun behind every blade of grass.

Mr. Lewis, Americans need guns to protect themselves from the roving gangs of black youth, for starters. What percentage of crimes are committed by black men? Clean up the sorry mess in your own back yard.
Brit Hume said Tuesday that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s call for a fix to Obamacare is a sign of just how bad things have gotten for President Barack Obama and his administration. On Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” network senior political analyst Hume explained to host Megyn Kelly that Feinstein’s shift, after a million Californians lost their health coverage, indicates the worst is yet to come. Many more Americans are expected to have their health insurance policies canceled. “This is as bad a political disaster as I have ever seen,” Hume said.
On Monday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, network senior political analyst Brit Hume speculated that President Barack Obama may not have been concerned about the rollout of his signature health care legislation, which has been fraught with problems. Hume noted all the problems with the law, which includes requirements for insurance coverage that the consumer couldn’t need and some of the failed promises made by Obama himself. “On ‘The Kelly File’ here on Fox News the other night, Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of Rahm and one of the designers of the Affordable Care Act
On Saturday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” Kate McKinnon played Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the show’s cold open and took on this month’s Obamacare rollout, which has been plagued by website troubles since its launch. “Hi, I’m Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of health under President Obama. Now, a lot of folks have been talking about our new health care enrollment website — how it’s been crashing and freezing and shutting down and stalling and not working and breaking and sucking,” McKinnon’s Sebelius said.
On Tuesday, Mediaite White House correspondent Tommy Christopher added another chapter to his ongoing self-promotional crusade masquerading as a career in journalism. And this time, it didn’t involve a shameless ploy to be an invited guest on whatever incarnation of Chris Hayes’ show MSNBC is currently airing. During Tuesday’s White House briefing on Tuesday, Christopher, whose name isn’t really “Tommy Christopher,” asked a question about President Barack Obama’s health-care reform law that incorporated his personal experiences with health insurance after his 2010 heart attack. “First of all, I don’t if you’re aware of this, but when I
Conservatives commentators Charles Krauthammer and Mark Levin traded barbs over Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz’s defund Obamacare tactics after Cruz’s 21-hour speech on the Senate floor. On Wednesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer reacted to criticism from conservative radio host Mark Levin, who had taken to his radio show on Tuesday night to remind his listeners that Krauthammer once worked a speechwriter for the 1984 Democratic presidential nominee, former Vice President Walter Mondale. Krauthammer author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” mocked the notion his position
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter suggested Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin orchestrated the chemical weapons attacks in Syria to “make Obama look like a monkey.” Coulter, author of the forthcoming book “Never Trust a Liberal over 3 — Especially a Republican,” told Fox News host Sean Hannity that it’s “not looking good for Obama.” "[T]hese Democrats think being president is a Hollywood movie,” she said. “If they just come out and say it is in America’s national security interest, Americans will all swoon like they do in ‘The West Wing’ when Aaron Sorkin is writing it.”
On Friday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’ s radio show, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said President Barack Obama should handle the Syrian crisis by taking significant action or no action at all. Hewitt compared the present-day United States to the one the late British Prime Minister Winston Churchill spoke of in 1943 at Harvard in his famous “price of greatness” speech. Churchill had applauded the United States for stepping up as a world power in the middle of World War II. That attitude about America’s role in the world is far different today than Churchill had espoused
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
