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?

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.

Yes, the release of texts sent between top FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show that both loathed Donald Trump while they were working on investigations involving Trump as a presidential candidate and later as president. Of course, lots of federal employees loathe Trump. (Snip) More troubling, in the set of texts released Tuesday night, is a single message, from Strzok to Page, dated Aug. 15, 2016. Here is what it said: I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy´s office that there´s no way he gets elected — but I´m afraid we can´t

From the House, to the Senate, to the President, Republicans are doing everything they can to sell their tax plan to a clearly skeptical electorate. For House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), that meant a pop in on Fox News Wednesday to speak with Dana Perino on The Daily Briefing. And it became clear at the beginning of the six-minute conversation that this was not going to be a probing interview. The questions were amiable from the outset. But at approximately the 3:25 mark of the video above, the segment veered toward full-on choreography — and bad choreography, at that. Perino set up

McKesson’s action is one of a series of lawsuits stemming from BLM protests in Louisiana against 2016 shooting of Alton Sterling. (Snip) Pirro referenced this lawsuit on the show “Fox and Friends” earlier this fall. “In this particular case, DeRay Mckesson, the organizer, actually was directing people, was directing the violence,” Pirro said. “You’ve got a police officer who was injured, he was injured at the direction of DeRay Mckesson, DeRay Mckesson walks away with

The messages reflect a strong bias against President Trump. However, the bigger story is not the anti-Trump bias within the text communication, the BIGGER story is why the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (OIG), began even looking at Agent Peter Strozk’s communication in the first place. Remember, the original mandate by the Inspector General’s office was initiated to review and discover any politicization of the FBI and/or DOJ officials.

The Justice Department provided congressional committees with hundreds of text messages between Peter Strzok — the agent on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team who was demoted for critical messages about President Trump — and his alleged mistress Lisa Page, a lawyer also assigned to the probe.

According to NBC News exit polls, 49 percent of Alabama voters thought the sexual assault accusations against Roy Moore were "definitely" or "probably" true.

Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea.

Former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that there’s “no legitimate” reason why the public should see her testimony about her role in tea party targeting, pleading with a judge to keep her deposition permanently sealed.
