Donald J. Trump

Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to......
mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk - no action or results. Sad!

So there it is.
 The absolute evidence we all knew was there. In some way it is a relief to see it in the open and exposed so fully. The man who led the birther movement, completely racist in itself, 
has now attacked a man who is the definition of a hero for justice, Representative John Lewis. He says that Lewis is all talk, no action. 
This is said about a man who bears the scars on his body of the fight for civil rights in this country, and who now this day bears new scars from another racist authority figure. The state troopers who beat John Lewis in 1965 rained blows upon him trying to overpower the sense of entitlement to justice that he held, but his convictions remained even as he absorbed their batons and he remained strong and triumphed. 
But as my friend Clint Smith wrote earlier, many of those who beat John Lewis are still alive, and their hate has been passed on and remains a potent evil in our midst. 

The birther movement was built on the same desire to beat the civil rights out of a black man who dared stand for the rights of all people. That movement IS Trump. And it remains Trump. And today he attempted to rain blows on our great hero's head as those racist troopers did more than 50 years ago. 
He is not a legitimate President elect. 
He will not be deemed a President at all when this is done. 
He is a racist con man who has abased this country from the beginning.
 And he will abase it to his end.
 Anyone who stands with Trump at this point is in fact a racist. 
You cannot hide from it.
 If you stand with trump you stand with racism.
 And you will fail. 
And you will be judged for it.
