Representative John Lewis to Moms Demand Action: Sit Down to Stand Up!

John Lewis is the U.S. Representative for Georgia’s 5th congressional district. He’s held the seat for 30 years. Speaking at today’s anti-NRA rally by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Rep. Lewis promised to repeat his pro-gun control sit down demonstration on the House floor.

Rep. Lewis then called for the Moms to mount their own sit down strikes in Georgia and other state houses. As you can see in the video above, that idea didn’t receive quite the same enthusiastic reception as the usual NRA slam.

We’ll see if Lewis or the Moms adopt the Rep’s 60’s-era protest tactic, or continue to lobby for gun control in their social media safe space, and locations within Uber-distance of gun rights gatherings.

    John Lewis has long since used up the credit of his civil rights accomplishments and today is a blustering buffoon.

    1. avatar DDay says:

      agree completely. He’s a 100% liberal vote, every time, no matter what the bill.

    2. avatar Paladin says:

      Lewis is widely believed to be the dumbest man in congress, he has to accede to the wishes of his liberal plantation masters to get re elected.

      1. avatar Ranger Rick says:

        Actually that distinction belongs to his esteemed colleague from Georgia the honorable Hank Johnson. He’s a s they say a real “maroon” ?

          I had to look that one up. Urban Dictionary does not disappoint.

    3. avatar Henry Bowman says:



      Comedy aside, the “civil rights” movement was not so much for equality but reverse the roles of the “discriminator” and the discriminatory”.

      Now you have fools like that that think their “halos” some how mean something more then nothing, they dont.

      Trouble makers like him are going to start to drop dead in the next 5 years, him, Feinstain, and the morons that fund them (Soros, Adleson, etc) and the nation will be better off for it.

      The 4th Turning is just about here.

      Amazing how many people don’t understand that they should be holding their phone sideways when they take a video, isn’t it?

  2. avatar Mike Betts says:

    Great idea. Sit down. Place hand over mouth. Perfect.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      That is the guy that did the sit-in where someone Photoshopped baby-suckers in their mouths:

  3. avatar Te(V)plar says:

    A black civil rights leader fighting to defend the laws put in place to oppress his people. Lewis lived long enough to become the thing he fought.

    1. avatar Nine says:

      You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain.

    2. avatar Geoff PR says:

      ” Lewis lived long enough to become the thing he fought.”

      That is the real tragedy…

  4. avatar TXGANKS says:

    LOL, is that a pink Magpul case I spy being used on an iPhone to film this? Sweet irony if that is being used by an anti…

  5. avatar Hannibal says:

    He used to protest to make sure everyone had the benefit of the Constitution

    Now he protests to try and make sure no one does

  6. avatar EJQ says:

    I wonder who or what hoists him back up after he’s sat for a few hours. The man is 77 years old. These sit-ins have got to be uncomfortable.

  7. avatar Wulfenstar says:

    Even hell has its heroes.

  8. avatar Kyle says:

    John Lewis is the luckiest man on earth. He marched at Selma with King, and got beat.

    He peddled that into a career in congress that has lasted decades.

    Could someone post a translation to English for me please? I don’t speak mush-mouth.

  10. avatar strych9 says:

    Rep. Lewis got it backwards (not that him being wrong is surprising).

  11. avatar DaveL says:

    Sit down to stand up – it fits well with their previous slogans, “War is Peace” and “Freedom is Slavery”. Now all they need is “Shut Up to Be Heard” and we can all finally get some peace around here.

  12. avatar GP1935 says:

    They won’t do anything of the sort. High profile actions like that would force the media to show the actual numbers of participants and reveal how few they really are.

  13. avatar Ralph says:

    Lewis is 77 and has been senile his whole life.

  14. avatar MLee says:

    I couldn’t bring myself to watch it. It’s as bad as accidentally tuning into Two Broke Girls. How things can be so stupid is beyond me.

  15. avatar Bob says:

    Once again, Moms Demand Action has a rally/protest, which is attend by such a small crowd that they accidentally, but clearly, demonstrate how disconnected they are from the majority of Americans.
    And as usual, the press uses close-up camera positions to make the crowd look bigger than it actually is.

    The result is just lame.

    Siddown and shaddup!

  17. avatar BigDaveinVT says:

    Rep Lewis is another perfect example for why we need congressional term limits.

  18. avatar J says:

    Can’t wait for ol” bulldog face to kick the bucket…….same goes for mcshitstain……two guys who’ve overstayed their welcomes by a couple decades….

  19. avatar GS650G says:

    God will open that seat eventually just like other 3 decade holders.

  20. avatar Tiger says:

    Sad, these ladies following Cindy Sheehan, in the role as disposable political prop.

  21. avatar TX_Lawyer says:

    John Lewis is a known terrorist. He is on the no fly list. Everyone on there is a known terrorist who shouldn’t be allowed to buy guns, so says Lewis. Therefore, he is a self admitted terrorist.
