WHO IS Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga.?:
The hypocrisy of John Lewis - He is willing to stay up all night in candle light vigil for a convicted cop killer, but has a "perfect score" on his voting record supporting the maximization and proliferation of infanticide.
The U.S. Supreme Court on September 23, 2008, issued a stay of execution for Troy Davis just hours before he was scheduled to die by lethal injection for the murder of a police officer, Mark McPhail. Davis is black, McPhail was white. If you ask the Democrat lunatic base, the majority would say this fact alone is enough to set Davis free. Per AlterNet (a left wing wacko internet mag.), "the case was largely built on witness testimony," and there is "no direct physical evidence tying Davis to the crime scene. The murder weapon was never found, and there's no DNA or fingerprint evidence."
Hmmm... No evidence like, say hypothetically... bloody footprints made by rare Italian-made Bruno Magli size 12s? Blood at the scene and bloody gloves that contained genetic markers of the suspect (who just happened to have a cut on his finger)?
Don't misunderstand, I'm not here to retry the Davis or the OJ Simpson case. Hang with me and you'll get it. Let's listen in on Rep. John Lewis, prior to Davis' stay:
This is a very sad and grave day in the state of Georgia, in our nation and in the world. A man that could really be innocent... may go to his death later today as an innocent human being. And when you commit that final decision and later discover that he is truly, truly innocent of the crime that he's been accused of committing, there is not any way to bring him back. I just think it's wrong and it's unfair, and it will be the greatest miscarriage of justice...
It is my hope and my prayer that Troy Anthony Davis will find peace in some way and somehow, that his life will be spared. But if not, he is a witness to this unbelievable craziness that still exists in one of the most developed places in the world, in America. And we advanced so far, but at the same time, we're so far behind, when it comes to respecting the dignity and the worth for every human being.
WOW! If there is one thing that John Lewis stands for, it is respecting the dignity and the worth for every human being, RIGHT?

Apparently, Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., only cares about "the dignity and the worth" of every convicted black cop killer, but doesn't consider babies to be "innocent human beings". Lewis is right in that "unbelievable craziness" exists in America, and that we are "so far behind, when it comes to respecting the dignity and the worth for every human being." It's just that Lewis doesn't understand he is part of the craziness.
Getting back to Lewis' original charge of McCain stirring up hate. Speaking for myself, I must admit feeling a very high degree of "hate." There, I said it. My hate, however, is not directed at the individuals on the other side of the polital aisle. Rather, my hate is directed at the liberal wacko views held by them. While I may not "Love the sinners" over there, I definitely hate their doctrine.
If you are so pro-life, why do you think that the state should have the power to take away life?ReplyDelete
If you don't believe that people can be wrongfully convicted, you need to read some more. Since 1976 129 death row inmates have been exonerated. Those are just the prisoners sentenced to death. So the "fact" that Davis is a "convicted cop killer" does not exclude the possibility that he might be an innocent person facing execution by the state of Georgia. This seems all the more possible if you actually read up on the facts of the case.
What's the difference between a innocent baby and a convicted murderer-they are both human why should one die and not the other one? hmmmm....I KNOW, to save the lives of the future murder victims!! It's not part of the lib playbook so the information is probably not available but I wonder if any of those 129 exonerated death row prisoners have committed any murders after they were set free.ReplyDelete
Looks pretty cut and dried to me...ReplyDelete
From Georgia DAs transcripts.
"Mr. Collins and Davis fled, and Officer McPhail ran past Sylvester Coles in pursuit of Davis. (T. 851). Davis looked over his shoulder, and when the officer was five to six feet away, shot him. Officer McPhail fell to the ground, and Davis walked towards him and shot him again while he was on the ground. (T. 850). One eyewitness testified that Davis was smiling at the time. (T. 851). The victim died of gunshot wounds before help arrived."
Dear anonymous, Thanks for visiting. However, I must insist that in future visits you try and focus. I'm sure your cluelessness that you put on full display here is actually applauded at your usual stops like the daily kos. Chatteringteeth, however, requires functioning brain cells. Have a Republican friend help you with the big words and concepts you find here.ReplyDelete
Then again, you did post a comment, and in this it shows me a desire on your part to learn. You have taken the first step.
I brilliantly showed the hypocrisy of Davis, using his own words to damn him, and thereby discredited him for his recent blatherings.
As for capital punishment and abortion. There is no moral equivalence here. But for the sake of argument, I'll play.
As for the possibility that Davis just might be innocent, and therefore all the poor souls on deathrow should be set free... Would you be willing to concede that maybe, just MAYBE, one or two of the 50 million murdered babies may not have been the product of incest or rape? (that seems to be your side's most tired argument). By your logic then, ALL babies should be given a reprieve.
I'd make that trade in a heart beat. Besides, life in prison and loss of freedom might be a worse punishment for these animals. I'm sure your side would make sure to have their votes counted either way. They are, after all, democrat constituents.
