I’m just going to start off by saying, I really don’t give the hairy ass of a rat what John Lewis says.
Yeah, yeah. I know.
He was part of the Civil Rights movement fifty years ago, therefore he must always be treated like he’s special.
Sorry. No sale.
If your one and only claim to significance is something you did a half century ago, I’m not particularly impressed.
It’s about as impressive as a has-been one-hit wonder from 1964.
If an eighty-year-old woman had a walk-on role in the 1964 movie Fistful of Dollars, but then never did another movie again, the Golden Globes won’t be giving her their Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.
Although, if she spent the subsequent half century advocating for abortion-on-demand, Barack Obama might give her a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
But then again, he hands them out like candy at a Christmas Parade.
He even gave one to John Lewis in 2010.
John Lewis is like a seventy-seven-year-old woman who still wears the tiara she won as homecoming queen her senior year in high school. He’s spent the last half century reliving his glory days of marching over the Edmund Pettis Bridge — as if he still hasn’t arrived in Selma.
He’s like Mrs. Havisham from “Great Expectations” – still wandering around her mansion in her wedding dress decades later.
For heaven’s sake. This is the image on his website:
Of course he’s marching on. He never wants the Civil Rights struggle of the early 1960s to end. Because if it does, he’ll have to take a good long look at his life and realize he’s done absolutely nothing of value since.
To borrow from Janet Jackson, what have you done for America lately?
I mean besides pulling out your tattered, fifty-year-old race card and waving it around like we’ve never seen it before.
Yet nobody is allowed to criticize the shriveled old toad because fifty-three years ago he marched with Dr. King to Selma.
[Well, nobody except me apparently.]
Leftists and the Enslaved Press still defer to the guy as if he’s actually accomplished something over the last half century – other than reminding us all that he marched on Selma.
How many books has he written about it?
Yesterday, Lewis sat down for an interview with Chuck Todd that will appear in this Sunday’s “Meet the Press” where he once again questioned the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s victory. After accusing the Russians of destroying Hillary Clinton, he sanctimoniously proclaimed that he would not be attending the Inauguration.
On behalf of those of us living in 2017, who cares?
You can question the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s victory all you want.
It doesn’t change the fact that he won the popular vote in thirty of the fifty states, secured far more than the 270 electors necessary, and is going to be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.
Just like I can question the structural integrity of John Lewis’ face.
But my questioning it doesn’t mean that at any moment, it will collapse like a soufflé. No matter how much I think it looks like it will.
I can question the gender of Lady Gaga but that doesn’t make her a dude. No matter how much I think she looks like a guy in drag.
So question away, you old has-been.
For over two months now, you idiot Democrats have been doing everything you can to delegitimize Trump’s victory.
Nothing has worked.
Rather than get the clue and move on, you think the reason nobody cares is because you were too subtle about it.
So now you’re tossing all pretense to the wind and coming right out and saying he’s not legitimate.
Still isn’t working, John.
So you ahead. Skip the Inauguration.
Sit like a grumpy toad in your office in the Cannon House and reminisce about your glory days from a half century ago.
Nobody will even notice your absence.
