Rep. John Lewis, already an infamous Democrat, wants to take some rather harsh action against folks who aren’t down with his civil rights agenda: He wants to smack them around with a bullwhip.
Indiana Jones this man is not.
The Daily Caller reports:
“It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C.
“I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes I feel like taking a bullwhip and just saying to people, ‘You get your butt up. You go out there and do what you must do,’” the Georgia congressman continued.
Not sure that using violence against those who aren’t as concerned with the same issues you are is a great way to go about winning over hearts and minds to your agenda.
And what kind of action is he wanting people to take for this cause? Is he referring to the actions being taken by groups such as Black Live Matters who riot in the streets and burn down businesses?
If so, there are probably better ways to go about making a point.
Whatever happened to the days when civilized conversations dominated politics?
