How do we know this goes back long before the recent lies about the Kill-The-Bill protests? Consider the whoppers Lewis was willing to tell in a campaign commercial for a Fulton Co., Georgia, county official.
Lewis was, naturally, the guy the Deemocrats made the point-man when they wanted to shut down the McCain campaign against Obama. All he had to do was say McCain was "Sowing the seeds of hate"...or something...throwing the racial bean-ball, and McCain was brushed back successfully.
"As one who was a victim of violence and hate during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, I am deeply disturbed by the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign," Lewis said in a statement. "Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse."
The veteran Democrat even invoked one of the most divisive figures in recent U.S. history. "During another period, in the not too distant past, there was a governor of the state of Alabama named George Wallace who also became a presidential candidate. George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights. Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama," said Lewis.
He warned, "As public figures with the power to influence and persuade, Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are playing with fire, and if they are not careful, that fire will consume us all. They are playing a very dangerous game that disregards the value of the political process and cheapens our entire democracy. We can do better. The American people deserve better."Sounds really familiar, does it not? Very like the smears against the TEA Party. And now John Lewis, once a brave man, is reduced to being just another lying, race-baiting, collectivist tool.
I'm not surprised to have it proven that Rep. Andre Carson is a liar. I am surprised to learn the truth about John Lewis; that he moved from lie, to smear, to greater lie.
Kudos to Breitbart and his people for their work in exposing the lies of these despicable people of the collective. Make it known.
