No One's Safe

"During my Congressional career, I've had the privilege to become acquainted and friendly with John Lewis, one of Dr. King's bravest disciples. On Sunday March 1965, John Lewis was as courageous as anyone could ever to be." – John McCain from his book, “Why Courage Matters.”

“What I am seeing reminds me of too much of another destructive period in American history," Lewis said in a statement released to FOX News. "Senator McCain and Governor Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse."

"George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights," Lewis added. "Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama."

It is noteworthy that when trying to give an example of what John McCain believes to be the highest virtue a person can posses, John Lewis is at the top of a very short list for the senator from Arizona. Former president Bill Clinton, who was considered the closest friend to African Americans (I don’t believe this), “the first black president” is his unofficial title, he was forced to cry uncle during the presidential primaries. He said and I quote, “the race card was played against me” with regards to how he and his wife were treated by the Obama campaign. My fellow Americans aren’t you just a little (in my case, quite a bit) sick and tired of walking on egg shells around Barack Obama because of his color? I am starting to realize that this man (Obama) and his followers have no concept of loyalty, and friendship. Based on what John McCain wrote in his book about John Lewis, you would have thought that senator McCain would have at least been given the benefit of the doubt by Congressman Lewis. John Lewis said of McCain that he is promoting racial segregation in the way he is running his campaign, simply by criticizing Barack Obama.

So who is safe from the wrath of an Obama presidency? If John McCain and Bill Clinton aren’t safe, then neither are you? Ponder that as you vote this November.
