Just like the annoyingly predictable Elizabeth Warren, Rep. John Lewis gave a commencement speech address on Saturday, allegedly pushing for unrest by telling the graduates to “get in the way” and “get in trouble” because the “country needs you now more than ever before.”
Lewis presented the address to the graduating students of the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. In the speech, Lewis delineated many of the challenges he faced during the civil rights movement of the 1960s and then made his own comparison of those days, to our days today.
Lewis claimed that in the 1960s under President John Kennedy,“there was a greater sense of hope and a greater sense of optimism. We must rebuild that sense of hope, that sense of optimism and never let anything get you down.”
Lewis also talk about the value of civil disobedience. Yes, civil disobedience. He went on to brag about having been arrested by the police five times since being in Congress, then went into the topic of “comprehensive immigration reform.”
“And since I’ve been in Congress, arrested another five times. My last arrest, almost two years ago, and two other private citizens and eight Democratic members of Congress had a protest on the Capitol grounds, trying to get the speaker of the House to bring forth a comprehensive immigration reform bill…It doesn’t make sense for millions and millions of people, including little children, to be living in fear in the United States of America. Set people on the path to citizenship!”
Just like this idiot, and the rest of the idiots on the left, there is no brain between the lot of them. EVERYONE want’s immigration reform, but you can’t make a economical problem, and an immigration problem into a emotional one, LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO. In fact, that’s the only thing they do, while at the same time making arguments that are not compliant with LOGIC and REASON.
Toward the end of his speech, he lamented the “mean spirit in America” and called on students to “Go out there, get in the way, get in trouble—good trouble, necessary trouble and make some noise. Our country needs you now more than ever before.”
John Hawkins’ New book ‘101 Things All Young Adults Should Know’, he teaches in chapter 17, “If you want to know what a person really believes, watch their actions.” Lewis seems to know what he’s trying to do – cause civil disobedience for his agenda. Typical politician, using the dumb sheep followers to do their dirty work…
