Conservative “Christian” Radio Host Mocks Rep. John Lewis By Punctuating His Speech With Gunfire

If its possible to feel anger, sadness, shame, and disgust, all at the same time, that’s how I feel at reading this news item. There’s really nothing more to add….

quote, (source)

lewis-ingrahamLike many other conservative hosts, (Fox’s) Laura Ingraham mocked the speeches given on the DC mall to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech.

“The goal was, as our caller said, to divide. To co-opt the legacy of Martin Luther King into a modern day liberal agenda, a left-wing agenda, progressive agenda. Whatever you want to call it. From gay marriage to immigration amnesty was thrown in for good measure. We talked about the Voting Rights Act.”

To make her point about immigration, Ingraham played a portion of Lewis’ speech:

“We must say to the Congress, pass comprehensive immigration reform,” Lewis said. “It doesn’t make sense that millions of our people…”

But the congressman’s remarks were interrupted by a loud echoing gunshot followed by a few moments of silence. Ingraham offered no explanation for the sound effect.

In a 1965 march for voting rights that would come to be known as “Bloody Sunday,” Lewis had his skull fractured by Alabama State Troopers while walking across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Even after his friend Martin Luther King Jr. was killed by a gunman in 1968, Lewis continued his commitment to the civil rights movement. He went on to settle in Georgia and run for Congress.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
