When it comes to less-than-sincere-seeming Republican praise for civil rights hero and congressman John Lewis, it would be hard to top Sen. Marco Rubio tweeting it was “an honor to know” Lewis while posting a picture of himself with … Rep. Elijah Cummings. But Republican Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia might have come close, last Saturday.

Congressman John Lewis was a Civil Rights hero, freedom fighter, devoted public servant, and beloved Georgian who changed our world in a profound way. The Kemp Family is praying for his loved ones as they honor his life & mourn his passing. #RIPJohnLewis”

Why are Kemp’s sentiments so odd? Because in public office, Brian Kemp wasn’t shy in making himself a now-notorious opponent of everything John Lewis helped secure. And Rep. John Lewis demanded Kemp leave office because of it.

“Brian Kemp is actively abusing the power of his office to make it more difficult for Georgians to vote. He must step down immediately as Secretary of State.”  John Lewis, October 16, 2018.

Among the more common responses to Kemp: “Keep his name out of your mouth.”

While someone is at it, shove as many Covid-19-infected deceased up the same hole of Governor Kemp, who is nationally regarded by the name of the hole itself.
