The day, the event, was set up to honor civil rights veteran warrior John Lewis. Usually, when a person of public import and distinction is being eulogized the focus is on his value to the nation.
But. Barack Obama, once again, placed himself at center stage. Dr. Alveda King, daughter of Martin Luther King, said, “The left will “grab at any opportunity” to twist an occasion like the funeral of civil rights icon John Lewis into “a political moment”.” The event became a scandalous ‘limbo party’.
As with all the extreme-left Democrats, Obama intentionally mischaracterizes the sitting president, likening him to former Alabama Governor George Wallace.
Without mentioning Donald Trump by name, Obama likened the president to segregationist Democrat Gov. George Wallace of Alabama, and compared federal law enforcement officers to the police who beat civil rights marchers across the South.Breitbart 7/30/2020 | Obama Uses John Lewis Funeral to Call for ‘Eliminating the Filibuster’
Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Obama, was born to communist parents, raised by communist grandparents, and mentored by a communist. His skin pigmentation is black but his mother was a white woman. No, he is not a descendant of African slaves as he alluded. Learn about Obama’s Marxist worldview here.
But since Obama brought it up, it’s worth noting that the only person in modern American politics to have repeatedly praised Wallace and other segregationists is Joe Biden. It was Biden who bragged that in 1973 Wallace considered him “one of the outstanding young politicians of America.” It was Biden who wrote in 1975 that the “Democratic Party could stand a liberal George Wallace.” It was Biden who in 1981 told a black witness in the Senate that “sometimes even George Wallace is right.” It was Biden who, while campaigning for the presidency in Alabama in 1987, claimed that he’d been the recipient of an award from Wallace in 1973 (it probably wasn’t true; but what a thing to brag about!), and then boasted that Delaware was “on the South’s side in the Civil War.”National Review 7/31/2020 | Speaking of George Wallace . . .
The Democratic Party has always been the party of slavery, the party that violently attacked Freedmen, the party of segregated schools, and the party of the Ku Klux Klan.
The Republican Party was founded to end slavery in America. Among the most celebrated American patriots and scholars, many were black Republicans. You can view a list from A to Y here.
