Racist governor wants John Lewis to thank Republicans for ending slavery

Another Republican has taken a shot at civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis. Maine Gov. Paul LePage thinks Lewis should thank White Republicans for ending slavery.

During an interview with WVON in Maine following Donald Trump’s feud with Lewis, LePage said, “It was Abraham Lincoln that freed the slaves. It was Rutherford B. Hayes and Ulysses S. Grant that fought against Jim Crow laws. A simple ‘thank you’ would suffice.”

LePage’s views are racist and wrong on many levels. He should never tell a Black man to issue a “thank you” for ending an inhumane institution that should never have existed. Furthermore, Lincoln did not end slavery to help Black Americans. Lincoln was not an abolitionist and did not believe that Blacks should have the same rights as Whites.

During a debate on Sept. 18, 1858, Lincoln said, “I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the White and Black races.”

Also, if LePage believes that Lewis should be appreciative to Republicans for ending the institution of slavery, he should provoke Republicans and Democrats to implement a bill that would provide reparations because slavery was allowed to exist.

Following slavery, Blacks in America endured Jim Crow laws, voting discrimination, hate crimes that remained unsolved, housing discrimination, employment discrimination and education discrimination.

In a sense, Blacks have only been completely free in America for about 50 years. But if we account for new age forms of discrimination such as mass incarceration and police violence, Blacks continue to face difficulties in this nation.

So if LePage wants Lewis to give the Republicans a “thank you,” he should start by apologizing to the man who endured brutality in many forms because of his race.

      Someone should punch you in the throat but they would probably hurt some innocent homeless guy’s dick you happened to be sucking at the time and that just wouldn’t be fair.

            id think twice about that snowball, this ain’t the 1800s. Id surely kill you in your sleep the very first night! Stop inviting me to your perverted master slave gay fantasies. I think we have pinpointed your issue. You are gay and love black men but you are having a hard time coming to grips with it. It’s ok man, there are probably others out there that share your fetishes..

          • dick green on January 19, 2017 at 8:32 am

            Dont be stupid. All WORTHLESS BLACK B——S will be chained up at night. It’ll be the law, like with dogs.

        • Guest on January 19, 2017 at 7:49 am

          That’s what it is always about for the little penis white trolls. It has nothing to do with racism. He will eventually work up the courage and proposition some black stud online to participate in cuckold. As they are the only race of men that practice this because of their inability to satisfy their women.

        • Guest on January 19, 2017 at 7:56 am

    Well….Truth is, all races engaged in slavery. Africans, Egyptians, Chineese, Europeans, Romans, South Americans, and Americans. Some African countries still do. If it hadn’t of been for the Republican vote, the civil rights bill wud not have passed bec the southern Dems voted against it. Robert Byrd, the democrat from W Va. until he retired abt 10 yrs ago, was a powerful member of the senate, and a former Klansman. Congressman Lewis is indeed a civil rights icon….but he’s also a big part of the gridlock in Wash. He is a crybaby, and he needs to stop being part of the problem and focus on fixing real problems that cud help all of us.

    • dick green on January 18, 2017 at 8:49 pm

      John Lewis is a worthless jigaboo.

      • Mike Gee on January 18, 2017 at 9:10 pm

        Hey everyone look at the little troll! Hi troll! We see you ?

        • dick green on January 18, 2017 at 10:00 pm

          After January 20th no WORTHLESS BLACK B—–D will be allowed to attain any position higher than Head Shoe Shine Boy and will not even be allowed to take the test until they have served as an apprentice boot black until at least age 60. That way we won’t have semi-literate coloreds pretending to be ‘congressman’ and bumping their blue gums about things they can’t understand.

          • Mike Gee on January 19, 2017 at 8:17 am

          • dick green on January 19, 2017 at 8:27 am

            Thanks for your concern you WORTHLESS BLACK B—–D.

          • Mike Gee on January 19, 2017 at 9:09 am

            thats all you got? Go get some new retorts and come back later snowball.

          • dick green on January 19, 2017 at 11:23 am

            You’ll take the retorts your master decides to give you and be grateful for them you WORTHLESS BLACK BASTARD. America starts being great again tomorrow. I don’t think you niggers are going to like it very much.

    “Discrimination such as mass incarceration”. Don’t go commit massive amounts of crime FFS and you wouldn’t have so many in prison. That’s a fucking slap in the face of every Freedom Rider who risked his neck (literally) for his grandchildren’s right to murder, rob and sling crack freely. Jesus H. Christ.

    • SrAgri on March 7, 2017 at 3:37 pm

      Exactly. These SJWs oppose prosecuting or policing crimes committed by “people of color” instead of trying to do anything about the root causes, such as the ‘gangsta’ culture that encourages criminal behavior, drugs, and promiscuity.

    Anyone that has the slightest knowledge of American history knows that the Republican party of Lincoln is nothing like today’s Republican party and has not been for quite a while. Most former racist southern Democrats (Dixiecrats), changed their allegiance from Dem. to the Repub. because of Presidents Kennnedy and Johnson’s support and passing of the civil rights bill. This man knows that, he’s a troll.

      And Barry Goldwater saw the opportunity to reinvent the Republican Party to lure the Southerners (and others) he saw running from the Democratic Party. The parties are markedly different from that point forward. One of the reasons Jane Wyman and Ronald Reagan divorced was because he was very political and a steadfast Democrat while she was the Republican.

    This guy again? He was the forerunner of Trump. Had he been in a bigger state he would’ve made even bigger waves than he did.
