    Hey John Lewis; karma's a MF, ain't it?

    When you had the chance to get behind a true progressive in the primaries, you pretended you had no idea who he was. Not only that, you did so in a press conference in order to show your allegiance to Hillary “bring them to heel” Clinton. Yep. You sold your legacy of police beatings and marches for civil rights with MLK to align yourself with the biggest corporate sellout loser candidate the dems have ever run. “Why would you have done such a thing?” people may wonder. Well, I’m sure it has nothing to do with attaining more power in an already corrupt system that you don’t seem to have a problem with now that you’re a part of it. So when you take to the stage and claim that Trump isn’t a “legitimate” president, not only are you wrong, you’re also to blame for his having been elected in the first place. You and every other sellout in the party can all go fuck yourselves. And please do so in a place that’s far away from any levers of power.

      Excellent post!  I had forgotten Lewis’s lapsed memory re Bernie’s frequent and consistent participation in civil rights matters.  He was also terrible when Comey was testifying about HRC’s malfeasance.

      With some other sore losers who aren’t going to the event. Talk about a case of denial!!

        6. Daily grind of nonstop hell? Nah, his job just like all of the minority

        Democratic party just got a lot easier.  They still won’t get anything done for their constituents but now they can blame the Republicans for their non-action.

        I get the impression that which ever party is in control wishes that they were the minority instead, because then all they have to do is sit back and criticize.

          35. true. but maybe they at least have to put up the appearance of

          opposition (easy enough since even in unanimity, they can’t get anything done with a strong pub majority.)  that’s the danger, that their apparent opposition might fool people again — like the post-bush opposition fooled people, only to be dashed by Obama.

      7. Yep! He actively worked to take down the people's candidate and helped sink his

      the campaign of a fellow civil rights champion. If you think that standing up to the Chicago Police is nothing, you need to think again. John Lewis was a real hero and nothing will ever take away that truth, but he is tarnishing his legacy by his attacks on Bernie. His support of $hillary who was illegitimate in so many ways, greatly weakens his charges against Trump.

      Lewis helped sink the most legitimate candidate we have had in my lifetime. His opinion on who is legitimate or not does not move me.

      “What have you done for me lately, John?” I’ve seen it all now.

      FDR stood for high/progressive taxes, tight regulation of corporations, effective legislation to support strong unions, a strong safety net, fiscal policy that supports full employment rather than austerity, engagement with the rest of the world in terms of trade and diplomacy and the Four Freedoms. Bernie supports the same issues plus an understanding of the danger posed by climate change. Count me as an FDR/Bernie liberal.

        I imagine a lot of them were not even born for most of his past.

        I was being born in 1942.  You have no idea what black people went through during the civil rights cause.

        I do because I supported their cause, even though I am white.  I believe we are all brothers and sisters but some of you rhetorical cannibalistic sophists and haters think that is corny.

        The man deserves respect for the way he led his life of bravery.

        Some of you should learn some black history and educate yourselves.  However since so many of you seem to be having fun gang banging him it must prove that ignorance is bliss.

        That is all.  Carry on.

          45. Thanks. The man has stood for and accomplished much during his life for

          the poor, minorities and women.

          Many minorities and women supported Hillary for what they thought were just reasons. I don’t disrespect all of them just because I do not agree with them.

          I disagreed with them just as I disagree with Trump voters – for different reasons. I respect that many clinton or Trump supporters had genuine reasons for their actions. They just drew the ‘wrong’ conclusions.

                I’ll let others speak for themselves in their own words.  But, I understand and share their anger, particularly over the number Lewis did to Sanders during the primaries about Bernie’s civil rights record.  That was simple partisan dishonesty on the part of the Congressman.  Very much a stain on Lewis’s own distinguished record.

          46. Would you prefer "choosing to blast a liberal icon at the same time Trump does?"

          Perhaps posters are not “siding with Trump”. That is a matter of intent which I cannot know.

          However, right wing posters who are blasting John Lewis and defending Mr. Trump use the same rhetoric. Perhaps here it is more a case of “strange bedfellows” than of “siding with Trump”.

            I am against Clinton/Podests doesn’t mean I side with Trump.  If you don’t like me disparaging Clinton/Podesta and their authoritarian followers, fine go ahead and say so, but don’t you dare equate that with supporting Trump.

          43. His "lifetime reputation" is quite intact with most liberals.

          I disagreed with him over whom he endorsed for Democratic presidential nominee. He is not perfect. Neither am I. (Only a few posters here at JPR have achieved ‘progressive perfection’. In the real world that is harder to achieve.)

          He has been a strong and effective force for liberal causes his whole adult life. If endorsing Hillary has cost him his “lifetime reputation” as a progressive,  we can ban him from JPR if he ever tries to join.

            48. I am aware Lewis has quite a vocal fan club.

            His twitterverse is off the chain, and may indeed be filled with liberals.  Or progressives.  Or whatever the catchy jargon is this season.

            I would never demand perfection from anyone but his smarmy display was despicable and won’t be forgotten.  Another poor reflection of a broken democratic party.

            From what I understand, anyone can post here, even Hillary voters.  They haven’t banned Al Franken yet, although I don’t see him post much here anymore.

                    I suppose that if the person that posted it meant the United States, she/he would have put “US hippies” or “U.S. hippies”. How come I understood it but you didn’t? It seemed pretty cut and dried. Instead it gave you a chance to be snarky and confrontational.

                      Check out your post 31 about the trombone. I could have reported that but I never report anyone.  It seems like censorship to me.

                        68. Why would someone report "sad trombone"?

                        It seemed like a nice safe way to respond to your post without having to actually say anything.

        40. Yes. The guy makes one bad mistake…

        Along with 65 million other Americans and he gets told that he can “go F— himself”, that one bad mistake superseding all the good he has done.

        sometimes one encounters posts that seem so very JUVENILE.

          77. It's not like his "one mistake" was to use the wrong fork with his salad.

          He choose to side with Clinton/Podesta Group which has a horrible civil rights record and then disparage Sen Sanders for his civil rights record.

          We had a war this last primary between the neo-liberal Clinton/Podesta Group and the People’s candidate Sen Sanders.  Mr. Lewis choose to fight for the wrong side.

        72. I don't understand. Are you siding with John Lewis?

        And where did you get “progressives siding with Trump”.  Just because progressives don’t like Clinton/Podesta Group and their followers, doesn’t mean we side with Trump.

        80. John Lewis lied about Bernie Sanders' Civil Rights history, an outright

        lie that was then proven to be a lie. Progressives did not ‘turn on Lewis’ because of his choice of candidate, they remember that lie which lost him a whole lot of respect as lies generally do.

        John Lewis turned on Bernie Sanders using a Brock lie, and for what?  For political gain?

        It backfired showing no Democrat should ever listen to slime like Brock.  They should know better

      28. After the lies he told about Bernie, he has zero credibility. Bernie was not

      fighting for himself when he was involved in the Civil Rights Movement, he was fighting for others. Lewis was fighting for his civil rights,  but has he stood up for anyone else’s , as Bernie did?  He could have stood up for the poor, for the working class, for justice for AAs, but he didn’t. He stood up for the Oligarchy.

      29. Rec'd for telling him to go "" himself

      That’s the way I feel about all 3rd-way lying hypocrites.  They rigged the primary against Sanders while lying about him the entire time, F THEM.  As Valerie Plame’s husband Joe Wilson said about the criminal Bush regime “these people do not belong in polite society”.

      37. Tell him like it is on Twitter just like we did to Cory Booker.

      We need to call out their hipocracy and how it gave us Donald Trump.

      Release the hounds!

      38. TRUMP ISN'T A LEGITIMATE PRESIDENT!!

      He lost by around 3 million votes! And Bush II wasn’t legitimate either, having lost by more than 500,000 votes to Al Gore.

        42. That's true and can be verified by googling 2004 election

        I wish some people would read before they rant.  BTW, after bush took over as potus, James Baker was sitting with the “Carlyle group”, when the attack of 9/11 took place. The group was financed by the bin laden family who were in attendance with baker as they watched it on tv.

        56. Hillary wasn't a legitimate nominee since she stole the primary

        I mean, let’s be honest about that. Oh, and until they overturn our use of the electoral college to decide the president, maybe the candidates should adhere to the current strategy. You know, like campaigning in states that are in play like Wisconsin and Michigan, courting progressive voters instead of conservative republicans, and actually having a cohesive message. Those are the things that win elections for democrats as far as I remember. If you do those things, you’ll win the popular vote AND the electoral college.

      39. Strange that Mr. Lewis Supported Hillary…

      cause around the time civil rights fighters were getting arrested (including  Bernie and likely Mr. Lewis himself) HILLARY WAS A GOLDWATER GIRL!!

      62. karma is a bitch

      he had every right to endorse her just like he did when he endorsed her over obama in 2008 it was the swift boating of bernie that is the problem.In chicago bernie protested for civil rights when ms hilary was goldwater girl.lewis tried to make it sound like bernie did nothing but clintons were active in civil rights.in lewis own autobio he wrote he didn’t even met hilary till 1991 and that was through bill.he tarnashed his legacy for what.Clintons who never did anything for minoritys or stood up when it wasn’t popular.

      Lewis is symbol of hypcrsy of dems.when they admit they cheated bernie and the people during primarys then they can cry russian BS.

      Dem establishment can go to hell for all i care.

      and forgive me because I can’t remember who, said “He maybe a hero, but that doesn’t make him a saint”

      I agree. His denial of Bernie’s record and blind support of Hillary destroyed his legacy, for me at least.

      They always sell out.

      What fresh hell is this?

        82. Yeah, it was disgusting

        As was Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to endorse Bernie before the MA primary. Meanwhile, “Bullhorn Bill” came in, electioneered ten feet away from a polling place and rigged my state. She’s supposed to be a leader? She had one fucking chance to do something to show leadership and she chickened out. My whole state’s congressional delegation all got behind HER before the primaries even started, so they can fuck off too.
