Is It Time To Revoke John Lewis’s Lifetime Civil Rights Hero Pass?

A Black Agenda Radio Commentary by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

John Lewis was a hero 52 years ago. What’s he doing nowadays with his Lifetime Civil Rights Hero pass? He’s a 14 term Atlanta congressman with nary a word to say on gentrification or the privatization of schools, roads, nature and the commons. He’s a pacifist with a US Navy ship named after him who votes for the NSA, Pentagon budgets, and re-arming apartheid Israel. Now his sainthood is useful again. But to whom and for what? Is It Time To Revoke John Lewis’s Lifetime Civil Rights Hero Pass?

Sheroes and heroes are people who take risks, who make great personal sacrifices to perform difficult and important duties for others. By that standard John Lewis and the six hundred who walked that bridge in Selma Alabama 52 years ago are heroes whose actions helped pass the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Let’s agree on that.

But long should that hero pass last? How many years, how many decades do you get to to boast and roast and toast and coast before you need to do something else even mildly heroic to keep your status current?

It’s not like Lewis has lacked new chances to serve the people this last half century. He’s represented a metro Atlanta district in Congress the past 28 years. Ruled by black mayors and the black political class since 1973, Atlanta has billed itself as “Black Mecca” though for more than half of black Atlanta there’s been little to celebrate. Black mayors have relentlessly gentrified the city, starting with the Carter Presidential Library in the 80s, the Olympics in the 90s, and after that demolition of public housing, privatization of the land under it, and the BeltLine project which steals $150 million annually from Atlanta’s public schools to build yuppie housing and shopping destinations. Marquee “development” projects have driven a six figure number of poorer black residents from the city. John Lewis never says a mumbling word about any of this. John Lewis never publicly contradicts the black Atlanta mayors who crack down on the homeless, who line up for the privatization of public property, public transit and public schools. Perhaps being a Legendary Civil Rights Hero puts him above all that.

Supporting Hillary Clinton last year, Lewis spoke out against free health care and free college tuition which many countries grant their young people, explaining that “free stuff” was just not the American Way. Lewis was also an early member of the Democratic Leadership Council, which irretrievably locked that party into subservience to its one percenter donors.

Sometimes members of Congress can undo historic wrongs. Lewis blew one such chance when he doubled down upon the expulsion of the descendants of black freedmen from the Cherokee nation in which they had once enjoyed voting rights.

John Lewis calls himself a pacifist and never misses a chance to lecture on the supreme utility of nonviolence. But the US Navy is building a ship with his name on it, a “fleet replenishment oiler” to resupply warships on deployment. Isn’t this an “honor” a pacifist should reject? And shouldn’t our Apostle of Non-Violence vote against every arms giveaway, sale and Pentagon budget? John Lewis doesn’t. Like most other members of the Black Caucus Lewis votes to fund mass surveillance and re-arm the apartheid state of Israel with depressing regularity.

It’s time to ask whether Civil Rights Hero status from 52 years ago is really enough to cancel out or ignore all this, and what purpose John’s Hero status serves today. John Lewis is in the news now because he called Big Cheeto’s presidency “not legitimate.” But why?
Is it because Lewis fears Trump will pursue more than 6 bloody wars, that he will deport millions of innocents, expand mass surveillance and militarized policing? Is it because Lewis knows the Donald will help greedy banksters stay ut of jail and he’ll enable hedge fund parasites to gentrify, plunder and privatize public education, nature and the commons? Probably not, because these are all Obama policies which Trump is expected to double down on.

John Lewis’s problem with Trump is that the CIA and FBI, which helped assassinate King and cover it up says that Russia helped elect him, and Lewis believes it. Big Cheeto did a Twitter fight with Lewis the other day and some of his followers called Lewis the n-word.

So now the Obama/Hillary liberals are flogging John Lewis’s tattered sainthood as hard as they can, to have a #NotMyPresident message that draws attention away from the many matters on which Republicans and the Obama/Hillary liberals agree. The old Civil Rights Hero does not oppose Trump for any reason which might lead to questioning past, present or future Democrats. Lewis is warming up the crowd for Obama’s exit and the entrance of whoever the Democrats run next.
This is what happens when there is no time limit on those Legendary Civil Rights Hero credentials. Time to revoke them.

Massive fraud again found committed by US-backed candidate

via Ezili Dantò RiseUp Listserve

Haiti people and the three top candidates say due application of the law requires the authorities to exclude the Jovenel Moise fraudsters from the election process for thievery...which should have happened already back in 2015 after similar massive fraud found by the tiny Haiti oligarchy and US imperialists. (Here's the imperial media's version of truth).

But below in Kreyòl are the realities as reported by Haitians protesting US neocolonialism, occupation and fake elections. The top three candidates report massive fraud, colonial manipulation and denounce the new Obama attempt to put a Martelly replica puppet president to continue to loot Haiti while the people suffer.)

Mete volè vot yo deyò
Trop de fraudes aux élections du 20 novembre, Médias et Avocats disent qu’il est impossible de faire la vérification…

Conférence de presse de Fanmi Lavalas lendi 26 Décembre 2016

Restitution du visa de Moise Jean Charles qui fait peur aux usa...

Mete volè vot yo, moun fwòd e sispèk blanchiman lajan yo deyò - mete PHTK bandi legal, Jovenel Moise deyò. No Sola-Clinton selekson an 2017. Ayiti pa pou kriminèl, volè vot e dwòg dilè (See comment at Ezili Dantò Facebook post)

PHTK vann lò e petwòl peyi a bay Blan kolon pou granmesi...Martelly bay Bigio tout pò Lafito pou li fè sa li vle. E li pran kès leta mete solda Israeli andan peyi nou an kòm nouvo Tonton Makout. Ti nèg roz, fig mi ki grangou pa wè danje a paske PHTK achte yo pou 2 gourden avek sache diri PLASTIC, oubyen kat telefòn Digicel. Visye yo pap wè pou jis li two ta. Se rezon saa, fòk Ayisyen konsekan pale fò. Si non, nap pedi Ayiti bay ti nèg roz ki te trahi Desalin an 1806 yo. (Facebook photo album)

Banm explike siw pa konprann.
PHTK e alye yo (AAA, KID, REPAREN, Bouclier.. elatrye) se yon bann volè, kriminèl, dwòg dilè, kinapè. Siw pa konnen cheche konnen.

Men, nou ka pran exanp Guy Philippe, Calixte Valentine, Evinx Daniel, Roro Nelson, Youri Latortue, Clifford Brandt (Gang Galil - bon zanmi Olivier e Martelly), Woodley Ethéart, Charles Saint-Rémy; lè frè Acra yo, et tout Duvalierist Tonton Makout parmi yo.

Martelly ak moun sa yo, moun koudeta yo, yo travay ak Blan Kolon, se yo ki deyè Jovenel Moise. Leta Martelly a kreye Jovenel pou sevi Martelly ak tout ti akolit li yo=Vandè peyi. Se yo ki chwazi l. Ou deja konnen Martelly ak bandi legal li yo. Martelly mete machin pouvwa sou pye kòm lyen saa montre. Yo volè eleksyon avek fòs, vyolans, koken, koripsyon e fwòd. Yo fè fo kat elektoral = 2million. Yo vote pou moun ki mouri, oubyen pou moun kote yo pran kat yo. Prèv yo toupatou.

PHTK volò enfòmasyon moun k ap pran charite Ti Manman Cheri, yo volè enfòmasyon ONA, ènfòmasyon leta, ènfòmasyon Digicel TchoTcho pou fè fwòd. Men, sak pi rèd, yo travay ak Apaid, Boulos, Bigio, Brandt - gwo, gwo nèg fig volè nèt yo pou kontrole bilten ki soti a letranje. Loni ede yo. Anbasad Meriken ede yo paske yo renmen kijan Martelly e moun koudeta yo vann yo peyi a pou fè sa yo vle: kadejak sou ti gason, tifi, manman, papa, menm jan ak lè FRAPH tap asasinen moun pou Michel "Sweet Mickey" Francois ak Raoul Cedras. Pagen jistis an Ayiti. Pa bliye sak te pase Jij Jean Serge Joseph ki te rele Olivier e Sophia Martelly devan jistis pou fwòd. Raple w ke Louis Jodel Chanblaim mache lib ak tout manmb Ti Lame Manchèt yo lage deyò prizon. LONI travay pou Meriken e Blan Kolon e bay bandi legal sa yo inifòm polisye pou mache tuye moun debyen e inosan ki pa vle mete restavek Jovenel Moise-PHTK sou pouvwa.

____ ou pa kretin. Ou konnen byen nou anba okipasyon. Bandi legal yo souse Ti Pèp la e Blan Kolon kite yo fèl paske Blan Kolon beswen totalman pran Ilavach, Mole St Nicolas, Fort Liberte, Motrouis, tout Pò an Ayiti, tou fason lajan rantre lan peyi a. PHTK se yo, ki kòmanse, anba Hillary Clinton/Obama, volè kòb sou chak fwa Diaspora rele Ayiti, yo pran lajan sou transfè Diaspora --- milion des dollars chak mwa te ale jwenn Martelly... Martelly se marasa ak Jovenel. Jovenel pa anyen san Martelly, $6 million dollar meriken- se (lajan leta) Martelly mete lan poche Jovenel pou kòmanse biznis li a e plis, li bay li pou fè kanpay. E depi lè saa Jovenel voye yon sèl bato bannan ale an Almay. Fwòd, fwòd...

Bandi legal fè Ayiti vinn yon plas pou dwòg, dezòd, masisi kap simaye maladi menm jan li te ye anba Jean Claude Duvalier pou HIV-AIDS. Yo rayi fanm, yo bat fanm- Prezidan Martelly joure fanm piblikman. PHTK se lanmò yo lavi. Yo bay moun manje diri PLASTIK.

Epitou, Martelly pran milia de dola lan men Venezuela anba Petwo Caraibes... Jovenel di li pwal kontinye fè menmjan ak Martelly.. PHTK/Martelly te bay Madanm Clinton aksè sou lò e petwòl Ayiti. Se rezon saa Meriken e PHTK kontrole sant tabilasyon--- Fòk yo mete dwòg dilè, kriminèl lan PALMAN - moun yo gen lan poch yo ki pral siyen nenpòt demand Blan Kolon mande oubyen Meriken ap rale dosye li gen sou yo fout yo lan prizon.

Leve tèt ou frè mwen, si non Ayiti pedi...Zansèt yo te goumen rèd pou kite yon plas pou nou domi. Kibò fanmi w prale lè Bigio ak èd PHTK bay tout Syrian li yo tè Ayiti e Blan Kolon retire tout resous anba tè a kap soutni lavi an Ayiti?

Election Day: Vote for A Free Haiti!

Jou a rive (Day of reckoning)! Mainstream media is wrongly predicting a Clinton-PHTK win today in Haiti just as they predicted a demonic Clinton win in U.S

Prezidan Moise Jean Charles ak Èzili Dantò Ap Defann Nou!

(article link at

Èzili Dantò Note:

Aba Clinton-Sola-PHTK-Digicel seleksyon:
Drain the Kenneth Merten-UN-US occupation swamp in Haiti

The shamestream international media and oligarchy-owned Haiti media are naturally predicting a Clinton-Sola-PHTK-globalist win in Haiti just as they wrongly predicted Clinton's win in the US.

The Clintons and the Democrats have a lot of Haiti loot their plundering that will be lost without another Martelly replica in office to validate their Haiti earthquake and resource thievery. Their desperation after losing the White House to Trump is dangerous but won't deter the Haitian people from again rejecting the Clinton-Obama puppet candidate, Jovenel Moise.

The voting has barely begun, but the propaganda being circulated by the morally repugnant one percent and their media minions is that the Clinton-Obama puppet candidate has won the Haiti elections. Since Thursday folks in Haiti and in the Diaspora have been getting phone calls and email blasts to vote for the Digicel-Clinton Foundation candidate. They've stolen our phone numbers to campaign for the legal bandits in Haiti that gave millions to the Bill and Hillary Clinton's foundation.

Dennis O'Brien gave millions to the Bill and Hillary foundation and in exchange has the Digicel cell phone and mobile banking monopoly in Haiti. Digicel ap kore volè, baka, bandi legal lan peyi a. Haitians must stop the Clinton-Sola puppet selection of Nov 20, 2016: Stop the Bipartisan-Globalist War Against the Haiti poor ; Vote #28 Prezidan Moise Jean Charles or anyone you wish that is not part of the legal bandit crew. (See, "Stop Sola, US/UN Kenneth Merten, Sylvian Cote/Sandra Honore SELECTION on Nov 20th! Message to the CEP and Privert Gov to Protect the dignity of the One Person One Vote Principle Today in Haiti " (In Kreyòl, French and English) -

We say no to the globalist in Haiti robbing poor Haitians blind. Haiti rejected Jovenel Moise in 2015 and does so again today regardless of the international bullying. Mwen di: Sa se blag. Nou pa an 2010 ankò. Se jwèt. Sa pap pase. PHTK fini. Bandi legal yo rate. Desalin leve. Martelly-Jovenel-Clinton-Sola deja tonbe an 2015 lè yo te eseye premye mannigèt saa. Ankinn moun pa ka leve yo. Pwe bar. Yo mèt leve kò yo frape l atè, sa yap cheche fè a pap rive. The witch is dead. Tisousou yo peye pou al vote bandi legal lan gwo problèm. Li jou, jou a rive! Kenbe fèm La sosyete, pa kite malfektè kraponnen nou. Antouka, mezanmi prekosyon pa kapon tande!

Here are two messages received from Haiti today about how the Kenneth Merten-UNDP-OAS-NOAH-SOLA-PHTK-globalists crew in Haiti are attempting to doctor up Haiti's November 20th election.
"Les résultats des élections haïtiennes du dimanche 20 novembre 2016 sont connus et déjà fixés par la Fondation Clinton :
  • Moise Jovenel : 52%
  • Jude Celestin : 24%
  • Moise Jean-Charles : 12%
  • Maryse Narcisse : 7%
  • Jean Henry Ceant : 3%
  • Edmonde Supplice Beauzile : 1%
  • Le reste : 1%
[...] Pour exécuter ce plan, il y a actuellement sur le terrain en Haïti un contingent de 200 agents haitiano-américains (NOAH) avec 1million 250 milles dollars américains pour acheter la Presse."

Hurricane Matthew death toll in Haiti is 270 & Rising

| Worst affected areas have not yet been assessed

It's another difficult Haiti moment.
Hurricane Matthew's death toll in Haiti is climbed to 270 people (as of 7pm tonight) and expected to rise. There is widespread catastrophic damage to roads, bridges, businesses and homes. The government estimates that at least 350,000 people need some kind of assistance following the disaster. Reports are that 28,000 homes have been damaged, according to Haitian officials. Mudslides and flooding are expected to trigger in the next few days. The worst areas hit have yet to be assessed. 

The death toll is expected to rise when these areas are reached. Phone and road communication are cut off for the South. The South is hit the worst, especially Les Cayes and Camp Coq at Ile A Vache. We haven't been able to communicate yet with our folks in the South as of this writing...

Dear Esteemed Friends of the Embassy of Haiti,

I hope this message finds you well during this difficult time for the Caribbean region.

As you are aware, a category 4 storm landed in Haiti on Tuesday, October 4, 2016. Hurricane Matthew has left substantial damage in many regions of the country, destroying homes, businesses and lives. While this storm has moved from the shores of the island, we remain in a process of assessment and recovery. I would like share the latest official updates with you as there are many different sources and platforms providing diverse information.

Haiti’s physical infrastructure suffered extensively. Communication towers, roads, homes and crops were severely damaged, most particularly in the southern part of the country. As of noon today, Haitian officials have confirmed one hundred eight (108) deaths and approximately twenty-four thousand (24,000) displaced individuals lodged in shelters. These numbers do not account for the Grand’Anse region as all communication is currently down and roads are still inaccessible in many communities throughout southern Haiti. The government is working diligently to ensure that access to roads and communication lines are restored as quickly as possible.

In such a time as this, I can imagine there is an urgency to mobilize and initiate efforts and offer ourselves at the service of our brothers and sisters. It is more beneficial however that we engage in a coordinated and strategic relief effort to avoid mistakes from the past. As the country continues to assess the extent of the damage, the state of Haiti strongly encourages all who wish to help to work with the local organizations and institutions on the ground in order to gain their input on the actual needs of the affected communities.

In the meantime, the most efficient way to contribute is to offer financial support. We encourage you to identify and engage local stakeholders. I and the staff at the Embassy stand ready to guide you and identify credible organizations on the ground for collaboration. You should know that local municipalities can also be good partners. It is imperative that we take caution when offering assistance not to contribute to the destruction of local institutions by bypassing or undermining them.

To best assist you, the Embassy of Haiti has activated a hotline. Please feel free to contact us and also share the number with your networks, (202) 320-4436.

I encourage you to stay connected with us on social media for periodic updates.

I am sending my best wishes to all your loved ones in Haiti.

Best Regards,

Ambassador Paul Altidor
