I don't think that the money changers liked the taste of the end of Jesus' whip either. Surprise!
Your saying it is bad if Jesus did it, and using that as an argument to say it is okay that Lewis said it.

He said he's generally not a violent person but said he gets so upset sometimes, he wants to take a bullwhip to people who don't shout loud enough !!!

Trump has retweeted worse. He's tweeted imagery of beating and killing his opposition, in all kinds of ways!
And once again you are using someone's words that you disagree with to try and justify the same thing with someone else.
Either they are both equally as dangerous, or they are both equally as metaphorical.

Rep. John Lewis Wants To ‘Take A Bullwhip’ To People So They Care About Civil Rights
So if you don't adhere to a certain belief or ideology, you should be beaten.
So people shouldn't have different opinions or beliefs.
Perhaps he should be first in line on the receiving end, considering his track record of racial division and predictably frequent false accusations of racism against anyone he disagrees with on a political level.
So John Lewis is a fan of whipping people with a bull whip?
Hmmm. Sounds like he is an OD. Original Democrat.
Can the same be done to elected officials that circumvent the Constitution?
I'm thinking about that whole cruel and unusual punishment thing right about now, Mr. Representative Lewis.
Thursday at the Congressional Black Caucus Town Hall on Civil Rights, Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) said the election of President Donald Trump emboldened racists to “to put on those hoods, put on those sheets.”
Lewis said, “When we had this most recent election, it helped create the climate and environment to bring out something that had been a little asleep, and people feel like now they can just get away with doing everything.”

And in case anyone happens to notice that I am now replying to myself, you are correct because its seems I am only talking to myself anyway.
I feel you. You are not alone.
It's good to know I'm not either...
