Lewis, a Democrat from Georgia, unloaded upon the McCain campaign, belt after belt of the classic race based suppressing fire that one would expect from a Democrat shilling for another Democrat. Needless to say, if Obama were truly as far in the lead as the liberal pollsters say that he is, no one on the left would have any reason to mention the name McCain or Palin in public.
Lewis decided to “issue a statement” and he started right in with the incredibly original and creative accusation that the McCain/Palin ticket was “sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse.” I couldn’t agree with the esteemed Representative more. However, upon closer inspection, it’s quite obvious that Representative Lewis is the political bigot and divider here..
“..he created the climate and conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights..” Lewis was speaking of George Wallace, DEMOCRAT from Alabama and Lewis was implying in no uncertain terms that McCain and Palin were fondly imitating DEMOCRAT Wallace. Lewis hasn’t the ability to see that the parameters of Democratic racism have changed from the 60’s version featuring DEMOCRATS using fire hoses and wooden clubs to today’s version featuring DEMOCRATS using quotas and set-asides.
“…he created the climate and conditions..” There have been no “vicious attacks” against any Obama headquarters but the same cannot be said about McCain headquarters.. Just yesterday, a McCain headquarters in York County South Carolina was vandalized. I would say that LEWIS has “created the climate and conditions that encouraged vicious attacks”. As long as the target of any “vicious attack” is a Republican, Lewis a can sleep at night knowing that all is well with the world..
“..simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights..” As of this writing, it is still a constitutional right to disagree with Barack Hussein Obama. However, anyone who attempts to do so will be tarred and feathered by the likes of Lewis. Disagreement within the Democratic vocabulary now equals “an atmosphere of hate”..
Lewis late Saturday then released another IED/statement saying that it was “not his intention or desire to directly compare McCain or Palin to Wallace.” If it wasn’t his “intention”, it surely became the welcome result. If Democrats were ever wrong, a Democrat with character would apologize. That’s the point, Lewis doesn’t believe that he is wrong and he has no character. If it wasn’t his “intention” to “directly” compare, his “indirect” comparison managed to get the message across loud and clear. If it wasn’t HIS “intention”, I will say that it is MINE, Lewis has “created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans..”
This is how the left operates. During the primaries, they paid their imbeciles to keep quiet. Once the primaries were over, their shills could then shout their obscenities from the rooftops regardless of their lack of veracity. When they do, just as in this circumstance, Obama or any of his other mouthpieces can then sanctimoniously say, “The Illinois Senator doesn’t believe McCain or his policy criticism is at all comparable to Wallace”.. Obama successfully distances himself from Lewis, he doesn’t demand an apology on behalf of McCain but no matter, the damage is done and the checks in the mail..
So if you point out Obama’s direct ties to domestic terrorist William Ayers you are “encouraging vicious attacks against innocent Americans”.. Quick history lesson for Lewis: Ayers didn’t “encourage” vicious attacks against innocent Americans”, he PERPETRATED THEM and yes, he “pals around” with the 143 day Senator from Illinois. If you bring up his $125,000 contribution from Fannie and Freddie executives, you are “sowing the seeds of hatred and division”..
Obama spokes-slug Bill Burton “dismissed the comparison” to Wallace but he said that Lewis was “on target in other ways”. Liberals “dismiss” the crackpotterie of the hired help but they demand apologies from the Republicans when they uncover and expose the “shortcomings” of their “Beatified Barack”. Lewis gave no further details on this “on target” business but then again, details are like intellectual Kryptonite to the lemmings of the left. They avoid them like they avoid work and soap..
Lewis wants McCain to take “steps to correct his divisive speech at his rallies”. Lewis’ definition of “divisive” is anything that sheds the light of truth upon the “Democratic Doppelganger”. “Divisive” is anything that the liberals don’t have an answer for, so it’s time to pull out the “projection/deflection” program.
Lewis laughingly said, “my statement was a reminder to all Americans that toxic language can lead to destructive behavior”. I wonder if Lewis was ever compelled to send such a forceful message or make such a powerful statement to any of his contemporaries, “black leaders” like $harpton, Jack$on and Farrakhan. The last time that I checked, it isn’t a “constitutional right” to yell “fire” in a crowded theatre and to incite others to set fire to Freddy’s Fashion Mart leading to the deaths of seven “innocent Americans”. $harpton calling Freddy a “white interloper” certainly had a calming affect upon the racists that $harpton had assembled in 1995.
The bottom line is that if you read Lewis’ silly statement, the only person that his inflammatory words are actually applicable to, are to Representative John Lewis himself. It is reassuring to know that Lewis’ job title is “Representative” because Lewis is typically “representative” of so many unapologetic and unaccountable racists of the liberal left.
The McCain camp released a statement saying that the comments of Lewis were “shocking” and “beyond the pale”. Believe me, if someone as “pale” as John McCain had said anything as outlandish and ridiculous as Lewis did, the inner cities would still be aglow with the fires of righteous indignation. Lewis is so far “beyond the pale”, his comments are conveniently covered by the “pigmentational protections” available to any and all “crackpots of color”.
The only appropriate conclusion to this whole racially ridiculous rigmarole is that back in August, McCain was asked at a forum on faith to name three wise people that he would listen to. McCain responded with the names of General David Petreaus, Meg Whitman and…Representative John Lewis of Georgia. No good deed goes unpunished with the liberal left..
