Rep. John Lewis Calls For Students To “Get In Trouble” And “Get In The Way”…For The Country?!

Just like the annoyingly predictable Elizabeth Warren, Rep. John Lewis gave a commencement speech address on Saturday, allegedly pushing for unrest by telling the graduates to “get in the way” and “get in trouble” because the “country needs you now more than ever before.”

Lewis presented the address to the graduating students of the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. In the speech, Lewis delineated many of the challenges he faced during the civil rights movement of the 1960s and then made his own comparison of those days, to our days today.

Lewis claimed that in the 1960s under President John Kennedy,“there was a greater sense of hope and a greater sense of optimism. We must rebuild that sense of hope, that sense of optimism and never let anything get you down.”

Lewis also talk about the value of civil disobedience. Yes, civil disobedience. He went on to brag about having been arrested by the police five times since being in Congress, then went into the topic of “comprehensive immigration reform.”

“And since I’ve been in Congress, arrested another five times. My last arrest, almost two years ago, and two other private citizens and eight Democratic members of Congress had a protest on the Capitol grounds, trying to get the speaker of the House to bring forth a comprehensive immigration reform bill…It doesn’t make sense for millions and millions of people, including little children, to be living in fear in the United States of America. Set people on the path to citizenship!”

Joh Lewis and Democrats are trying to recreate the summer of 1969 but ti's not going to work out so hot for them. If anything, their attempt to court social discourse will only provoke more Democrats in Middle America to abandon the party and opt for Trumpism where prosperity and financial security will soon be king once again. There's a reason why these politicians fear for their cushy existences. Most have achieved them through illegal means and they're afraid now they will be caught and brought to justice. Johnny doesn't tell his constituents about how he hasn't paid taxes on his DC home in over seven years and has also cheated on his taxes for twice as long. Because of Obama's buddy system at the DOJ, he's been allowed to skate unscathed by the long arm of the law. Now that Trump is shaking it up, Johnny's afraid he's headed to Jessup or some other detention facility. Most people who are marred down in Democrat dogma seem to miss these subtle situations that reign ever-present in the Democrat political elite class.

Wonder what John Lewis thinks about the blacks who want segregated commencements? What a fool; all he and Martin preached and stood for down the tubes. Hey John...no one is listening anymore. Pack up your NAACP and go home, you are old news.

He shouldn't be allowed to feel safe and secure in his home.

What he refers to as a sense of hope, was after all, a sense of naivety.
Most people had no idea of how corrupt the US government was back then.
Now we have some idea.
