The report I posted said that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confirmed his death. However, Nancy hasn't been very truthful in the recent past, now has she? It was on the Local/National news on the Dish network this morning. I figured it would be all over ATS this morning. Something is different about ATS today, I can't put my finger on it...

Good luck not posting this in the mud pit. Already the classiness of the ATS right is coming out in force on your thread.
Lewis held onto his values and fought for civil rights his whole life. Few in politics can say the same.

A leader of the Civil Rights Movement dies and members of ATS celebrate? I'm so shocked.

He was a leader in the civil rights movement, and for that we should celebrate his life. Later on though, he sadly became a voice of division and it's that later version of his character that most people here are complaining about him.

I'm not sure many people here are acting happy that he died though, he was neither a big criminal, nor was he out to get anyone. It would seem that his only crime was just allowing his party to worsen over the years rather then be a role model and improve it.

Leader???? You mean a race card player don't you?

Here's a clip about the illustrious Congressman John Lewis and his many achievements:


360newslasvegas.com...

Congressman John Lewis this week attacked President-Elect Trump as an illegitimate President based on rumors Russia hacked Hillary Clinton and the DNC’s emails during the election exposing their corruption, which was the real crime. Congressman John Lewis was elected to Congress from Atlanta Georgia in 1987. This year will mark his 30th year in Congress. Lewis has been re elected to Congress over and over again because he was one of the early civil rights pioneers from the 1960’s in the South, suffering repression and violent discrimination. But his failed record in Congress of helping his district is told not just the dismal numbers, but through the countless stories of the lives lost to crime and poverty in Atlanta Georgia.

Atlanta Georgia, especially Lewis’s 5th Congressional District, according to Forbes, is the 6th most violent city in America. There are over 1,433 violent crimes for every 100,000 residents. As reported in the Atlantic Journal-Constitution, Atlanta has a murder rate of 20.2 per 100,000 civilians and 94 total murders in 2015, a list based on FBI data, compiled by economic analysis site 24/7 Wall Street.” That’s worse than Sub Saharan Africa.

The unemployment rate for African Americans in Atlanta is 22%. 80% of Atlanta’s African-American children live in communities with high concentrations of poverty, compared with 6% of their white peers and 29% of Asians. 82.1% of Atlanta blacks lives below the poverty line according to city statistics.

By all measures Mr. Lewis has failed to help raise his community out of poverty, failed to stop the violent crime, failed to bring jobs to his district and failed to improve the lives of children. But Lewis has continued to play the race card in Congress, even falsely claiming Andrew Breitbart called him the “N” word at a rally which was proved a lie with video recordings. He continues to get re elected based on his brave actions in the 1960’s civil rights movement while the liberal media gives Lewis a pass on his performance in office in this century. But by all means Mr. Lewis, continue attacking Donald Trump who is already on track to create more US jobs since his victory in the election than Lewis has created in Georgia’s 5th Congressional District in the last 30 years.


Just because a politician dies it doesn't make them a saint. He was as impotent and useless as Joe Biden.
