Can we stop pretending Representative John Lewis is relevant?
Rep Lewis got himself into a beef with President Elect Donald Trump, yet people are acting as if this beef actually deserves a spotlight. Way before I was born, Representative Lewis found himself on the front line in many dangerous situations fighting for civil rights. He clearly played a key role in desegregation of the south. I am just trying to figure out what he has done since then?
John Lewis has been a Georgia politician since 1987, yes 30 years, and has not brought forth one law to better the circumstances of black people in America. Lets go a bit deeper, he has not brought forth one law, period. He has organized demonstrations and made a stink about not attending inaugurations of president elects he doesn’t consider a friend. He has publically opposed a few bills, didn’t offer any fixes, but made sure to throw a fit. Basically, Representative Lewis throws temper tantrums that are seen by more than just people in a Walmart check out line.
I hate to be rude, not really, John Lewis may be one of the least effective members of congress. The 50-something democrats on the hill not attending this year’s inauguration claim they are being a voice for their constituents. Well, what about the constituents that voted for President Elect Trump? What message are you sending the Trump supporters in your district? Better yet, which finger are you waving their way?
