RIP: John Robert Lewis – American Hero

Posted July 18th, 2020 by Iron Mike


He walked the Walk – and was badly beaten for it!

John had been fighting a losing battle with pancreatic cancer since December.

While in recent years he seemed too easily swayed by the most liberal voices in the House, – the grit and heroism of his younger years can never be denied.

I kept hoping that the Old Warrior would call out Obama as a usurper and a fraud,  – but it never happened.  He is with his friend Martin now.

    You have a much higher opinion of Lewis that I do. I saw a man who participated on one memorable act and milked it for the rest of his life. He was a one trick pony.

    I always thought the beating he took – many blows to the head – changed him. But once – when it counted, he walked the walk and stared down death.

    You are correct that his later years left a lot to be desired.

    I try never to speak ill of the dead, no matter, unless it’s Ginsberg.

    RIP

    Hawk stole my thunder. He did one great thing, milked it, and then sold out completely. In his later years he was nothing more than a race pimp on the order of the non-reverend Al Sharpton.

    I also avoid saying anything bad about the dead but Hawk and Kojack pretty well sum up my opinion but regardless, Requiescant in Pace
