Segregation Will Return If Romney Wins, Says Rep John Lewis, GA-D

Congressman John Lewis of Georgia, a Democrat, also happens to be out of his mind. He's 72, so maybe he's getting a little senile, but to claim that if the GOP wins in November the black population will be catapulted back to the segregation of the 50s and 60s. What? Talk about fear mongering, something the Democrats always blame the Republicans for.

I guess he's senile enough to forget that it was the Democrats who were most actively involved in denying blacks their civil rights.

Lewis said at the DNC:

“I’ve seen this before, I lived this before,” he claimed, after extensively describing his activism in Southern states in the 1950 and 1960s.
“We were met by an angry mob that beat us and left us lying in a pool of blood,” he said to raucous applause from roughly 20,000 delegates and activists.
“Brothers and sisters, do you want to go back?” he called, prompted a loud response of “No!” “Or do you want to keep America moving forward?” he asked Sept. 6 to raucous applause from roughly 20,000 delegates and activists.

Of course, he's not the first one to voice that ludicrous claim.  VP Joe Biden recently told a group of blacks that the GOP are "gonna put y'all back in chains."

Unfortunately, there are enough stupid people in this country who will buy into those outright lies. They forget that the Republican Party was created to destroy slavery, and was abolished under Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, not a Democrat.

Shame on Biden and Lewis.
