The AP doesn’t mention that all of these people attacked Trump first, like John Lewis. And it doesn’t occur to the AP that Trump’s success might be in part because of, not in spite of, the fact that he defends himself against scurrilous attacks.
The biggest news story of the day, apparently, is the dustup between Rep. John Lewis and Donald Trump, about which I wrote this morning. Although the story has little real significance, the Associated Press, the most influential news source in the U.S., spins it furiously to drive its anti-Trump narrative.
Start with the headline: “Trump unleashes Twitter attack against civil rights legend.” Most people only read headlines, and this one gives no clue that it was Lewis, not Trump, who started the fight by saying on Meet the Press that Trump will be an illegitimate president. And Lewis is identified as a “civil rights legend,” not as a hyper-partisan Democratic politician, which is what he is. Now to the article:
Donald Trump tore into civil rights legend John Lewis for questioning the legitimacy of the Republican billionaire’s White House victory, intensifying a feud with the black congressman days before the national holiday honoring Martin Luther King Jr. and as the first African-American president prepares to leave office.
Enough with the “civil rights legend”! That was 50 years ago, and has nothing to do with Lewis’s claim that Trump is an illegitimate president-elect, or Trump’s Twitter riposte to the effect that Lewis is an ineffective Congressman. Nor does the impending Martin Luther King day, or the departure of Barack Obama from office, have any relevance. These references are just thrown in so you know whose side you are supposed to be on.
And oh, by the way, did you know that Donald Trump is a billionaire? Is that going to be injected into the first paragraph of every story about Trump for the next four years?
Lewis, among the most revered leaders of the civil rights movement, suffered a skull fracture during the march in Selma, Alabama, more than a half-century ago and has devoted his life to promoting equal rights for African-Americans.
Oh, please. Lewis has devoted his life to being a hack Democratic Party politician. John McCain was a hero 50 years ago, too, but has that ever stopped the Democrats from criticizing him? No.
Everyone would do well to remember the words of an old communist who said "we will bury you without firing a shot". The recent events clearly illustrate how this is happening today with the great influence of the communists in our government, political parties, Hollywood, News Media, Education, etc.. Everyone is ignoring the people of the United States who are losing their voice and their freedoms. We had an election and the people have spoken. We all need to try to unite to try to solve the problems to preserve the country and the constitution before it is lost forever. Study history through the ages..
I am so friggin tired of the media and the lefts games. If Black folks cant see the game they are playing by now then they deserve to keep getting raked over the coals by the left.
Black's are like Muslims... there are no moderates only those silently observing and vicariously taking part... as they reap the benefits of racist legislation and programs. The Black race must understand that permanent institutional REVERSE DISCRIMINATION can not continue... it will result in violent revolution if it is permitted to grow.
Pastor Manning described had a few words about that subject...
It galls me to no end that the Democrats have a forum and a microphone, even when they are asleep.
What all the naysayer's don't understand is that "Opinions are like rectums" - everybody has one. They don't want to hear my opinion and I am DAMN tired of hearing theirs.
DONALD TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT-ELECT AND WILL BE THE PRESIDENT. SUPPORT HIM OR DON'T JUST TALK ABOUT IT - MOVE OUT OF AMERICA!!!!!!!!!
Skull fracture? That answers the question. Answer "BRAIN DAMAGE".
In order to sustain 'Brain Damage' one must first have a brain... that leaves out most liberals.
I can't argue with that Ronald.
It's time for John Lewis to do some serious soul searching; because, today in the year 2017, John Lewis has become more like "Bull" Connors, than he is like Martin Luther King. Dr. Martin Luther King is rolling over in his grave when he sees how badly John Lewis has corrupted his message.
Enough is enough! Looters & destroyers of private property should be stopped with extreme prejudice - that means shooting them if they will not stop or surrender to authority on the scene.
Look at the mouth on Lewis in the photo above. Says it ALL!
