  Former Black Panther Mason Weaver Calls Rep. John Lewis An
  “Illegitimate Congressman”

Share on Facebook 

Former Black Panther Mason Weaver, who has since found redemption 
through conservative Christian writing, claimed stunningly Monday that 
Georgia Rep. John Lewis was an “illegitimate congressman” who presided 
over the “destruction of black America.”

Speaking on Fox News 
about Lewis’ recent claim that President-elect Donald Trump was an 
illegitimate president 
<http://conservativetribune.com/tucker-carlson-warpath-guest/>, the 
ex-Black Panther maintained that Lewis was a “civil rights turncoat” — 
one who, despite having marched with Martin Luther King Jr., had 
ultimately sided with the wrong people: the Democrats.

“He has joined the enemy — he has joined the oppressor,” Weaver said. 
“You (Lewis) tried to work with them, but the Democrat Party has always 
been the party of abuse, always been the party of the Klan 
<http://conservativetribune.com/dnc-calls-gop-racist/> — the party that 
went to war to keep slaves — the party that has always been (about) the 
destruction of black people.”

“If you’re a real man, John Lewis, you stand up tomorrow and you 
apologize,” Weaver added, referencing both the congressman’s remarks 
about Trump and his longtime support of Democrat policies that have 
devastated black communities throughout the nation.

During his 30-year career in Congress, Lewis has championed welfare 
policies <http://conservativetribune.com/grocery-store-receipt-welfare/> 
designed to coddle struggling black communities and make them dependent 
instead of helping them succeed. And according to Weaver, these policies 
were entirely anathema to the civil rights movement’s true cause.

“In the early ’70s and late ’60s, we were demonstrating and protesting 
for the right to compete as adult citizens of America,” he said. We were 
not demonstrating to be taken care of.”

As black conservative commentator Crystal Wright wrote for Townhall 
four years ago, “After nearly 50 years of liberal policies coddling 
black Americans with little economic progress to show for it, don’t we 
think it’s time to try something new?”

Trump, for whom Lewis has shown a conspicuous distaste, certainly 
believed so, according to Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

“You remember that great line, ‘What the heck do you have to lose?'” he 
asked Sunday on Fox News, referencing what Trump asked the black 
community during a rally late last year. “He is committed to being 
president of all of the people of this country and to bringing jobs and 
prosperity in ways that the failed liberal policies of the past several 
generations have not.”
