John Lewis Asks for Courage He Once Displayed from a Political Party that Has None.

Congressman John Lewis called today for courage from the GOP, courage not nearly so impressive as he displayed at Edmund Pettis Bridge in Selma, Alabama in 1965, but courage they simply do not possess:

Rancho Santa Fe Review

“Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties and building what he calls “The Beloved Community” in America. A child of sharecroppers in Alabama, as a young boy he was inspired by the activism surrounding the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. At age 23, Lewis was an organizer of the historic March on Washington, the occasion of King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

In 1965 Lewis was beaten and almost killed by police on the notorious Edmund Pettis Bridge in Selma, Ala., near the beginning of the legendary march from Selma to Montgomery.”

I admire your optimism,Congressman Lewis, but such courage will not be found in today’s GOP.
