John Lewis Refuses To Share Stage with
Trump At Civil Rights Museum Opening

Daily Caller, by Amber Randall

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2017 6:11:58 PM

Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is refusing to attend the Thursday opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights museum since President Donald Trump will be there. Lewis, who played a crucial role in ushering in civil rights for black Americans, will not be speaking at the opening because Trump’s presence is an insult to the men and women represented in the museum, Time reported. (Snip) The ceremony is planned for Saturday to celebrate the 200-year anniversary of Mississippi entering the union. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant extended an invitation to the president to attend, sparking a wave of outrage from various

What a rude, vile, low class thug. He is as extremely ugly on the outside as he is on the inside. I´m sick of hearing about these ´icons´ who are anything but.. He´s another example of a hack that screams for term limits. He is almost 80 years old and has been in congress for way too long. If a Republican had done that to Obama he would be the first to start shrieking like a scalded dog and go on every network to condemn them. I´m sick them and their horrific behavior.

There´s a clue for the President: Be sure to show up wherever Lewis plans to be, and we´ll never have look at his nasty puss again.

I´m betting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have welcomed the President. Haters like John Lewis have to keep the hate going and he is a smaller man for it.

FTA: ~~"The President hopes others will join him in recognizing that the movement was about removing barriers and unifying Americans of all backgrounds,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday during the White House Press briefing."~~

God Bless you, Sarah!

One thing we can count on is a "spontaneous" wave of outrage for anything and everything Trump, from many Progressives. This is what happens when the swamp plantation gets disrupted and the coronation gets cancelled.
When was the last time that Lewis seriously addressed the "absent father syndrome" in the black community. How about "Hands up don´t shoot"? This guy;s icon-status was revoked a LONNNG time ago ... now he´s just a TOOL in every sense of that word.

Sadly John Lewis, and many of the CBC, listen to a whole bunch of very liberal, white people who have been telling them "things will get better" for over 50 years.

Trump, actually wants to improve and fix things, not just talk about it.
I think that´s what scares most of them in DC. Remember, he was a democrat just a few years back, and was welcomed by most of those who now say they despise him.

Just thought of something: Ole John is a full head+ shorter than Barack. Barack is 6’1. President Trump is 6’3.

Ole John could not bear standing on the same stage near President Trump.

I dislike calling anyone racist. In John Lewis´d case it´s the only description (except ugly which he can´t help)that fits and describes what this man stands for and believes. Sadly, racism will not die until the racists do. We have many, many deaths to witness before that happens.

There are two solutions to this problem.
Someone should hit Lewis in the head again like in Selma.
Maybe Lewis should be dis-invited (because he´s a trouble maker)

I think the first option is best.

No matter what you do for some people, it´s never enough. John has never been a slave and I have never owned a slave. Get over yourself and move on. I owe you nothing, including respect.

John Lewis is peeved because the ceremony won´t be all about the world-historic fact that he got beaten up 55 years ago. Something he manages to remind all of us every time he opens his mouth.

The chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Monday demanded U.S nuclear regulators explain how a Russian-owned mining company was able to ship American uranium outside the country using a third-party export license. Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said new information brought to light in a series of stories published by The Hill about Uranium One’s exports to Canada, Europe and Asia conflicts with assurances he was given years ago by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that the mining firm’s uranium would stay inside the United States. “Recent reporting by The Hill uncovered that Uranium One was able to export

Donald Trump, according to his many critics, is the single most divisive, stupid, bigoted and unpopular president in American history. To say Trump is ‘polarizing’ is to massively understate the sheer enormity of hatred that exists toward the billionaire tycoon who won the White House just over a year ago. (Snip) Yet, there’s one thing even his most vociferous enemies – and that is a historically high volume of human beings – cannot continue to deny, and it’s this: Donald Trump delivers on his promises. Of course, in the main, they’re not promises his opponents actually wanted him to keep,

Fusion GPS bills itself as a corporate research firm, but in many ways it operates with the secrecy of a spy agency. No sign marks its headquarters above a coffee shop in Northwest Washington. Its website consists of two sentences and an email address. Its client list is closely held. The small firm has been under intense public scrutiny for producing the 35-page document known as the Trump dossier. Senior executives summoned to testify before Congress in October invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and the firm is resisting a congressional subpoena for bank records that would reveal who

Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars. He added that gusty winds and

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans.
