HEADLINE NEWS: Barack Is Cool, But He Is NOT God!
Congressman John Lewis recently issued the following race-baiting tirade against the McCain-Palin ticket:
"As one who was a victim of violence and hate during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, I am deeply disturbed by the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign. What I am seeing today reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history. Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse."
Do you remember, John Lewis, that George Wallace was a Democrat during most of his political career?
Do you remember that Wallace was shot five times while campaigning for the presidency?
Are you so blinded by your own racism that you are unable to see contrary opinions as anything but bigotry?
Would you prefer to simply skip the election and just install Barack Obama as president by popular consent?
Is it your intent to ignite feelings of hatred against John McCain and Sarah Palin of such intensity that they will become open targets for a deranged assassin?
It seems that folks like John Lewis are the ones speaking and acting irresponsibly.
BARACK OBAMA is not God! His political views are not sacred or Holy!
People can and do disagree with Obama and want to hold him fully accountable.
That does NOT make anyone racist!
