John Lewis and #TruthAboutSelma

By Hunter Wallace

When I saw the Lügenpresse was driving the news cycle with Trump’s tweets about ‘civil rights icon’ John Lewis this morning, I felt like I had to do something. I’m sick and tired of John Lewis parachuting into my state for his annual photo ops. So, I got in my truck and drove over to Selma to retrace his footsteps.

This guy has been coming here for over 50 years now and his marching has cut a swath of economic devastation through Dallas, Lowndes and Montgomery County, AL that can only be compared to General William Tecumsah Sherman’s March To the Sea. As everyone who lives in the Alabama Black Belt knows, the devastation that John Lewis wrought here during and after the Civil Rights Movement is worse than anything that Vladimir Putin’s Russia could ever possibly do to us.

I decided to start out in Montgomery and retrace John Lewis’s footsteps, in reverse, from the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery back to Selma. Unfortunately, it was mid-afternoon before this project got underway. It was a spur of the moment thing and so I only accomplished a fraction of what I set out to do. I will be returning to Selma in the next few days to help my friend Paul Kersey document The Truth About Selma: What Happened When The Cameras Left and The Marching Stopped.

I’ve been planning to start using Periscope. Until this afternoon, I had no experience with it whatsoever. I downloaded the app, got out of my truck, marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and walked all over downtown Selma while filming. It was a Saturday evening and it still looks like Selma was attacked by a Russian EMP weapon. The video is very shaky because I had no idea what I was doing:

I’m going back to Selma either Sunday or Monday. There’s a lot that I want to show you which I didn’t get to do today. You will never see this on the fake news Lügenpresse which returns to Selma year after year for John Lewis to get his annual photo op marching over the magic bridge. We’re going to expose John Lewis – how he has a reverse Midas Touch, everywhere he marches ends up blighted and crime-infested – and use Twitter and Periscope to show you what happened when the cameras left and the marching stopped in 1965.

Is it racist? –>

    Trump is right. These government paid race hustlers are jokes.

    Much like Haiti or “Zimbabwe,” Selma is an example of what remains when there are no white people to maintain a society.

    George W. Bush is such a useful idiot, he can always be counted on to advance the agenda of any mortal enemy, so long as there’s a “photo op” in it…

    John Lewis has to be the most incoherent and ridiculous man who has ever been elected to Congress. The MSM can’t point to one legislative accomplishment of his iconic career.

    Getting hit on the head once 40 years ago may garner you “civil rights icon” status however today he is simply an old fool.

      I have to disagree: When it comes to “incoherence” or “ridiculousness,” Lewis has a lot of competition. Just listen to Nancy Pelosi sometime, or just about any member of the Congressional Black Caucus…

    Hunter I had no idea that Selma became so dilapidated! Just think, Montgomery is no better except the SPLC has $300M.
