I’m not committed to Bernie or Hillary at this point, but I must call out Rep. John Lewis for using civil rights as a political pawn in the service of his friend Hillary Clinton. Lewis has every right to suggest that he prefers and is endorsing Hillary and give the reasons why. But to suggest that he, John Lewis never saw Bernie at a civil rights event or that Bernie has never  been engaged with the civil rights movement is an outright lie that Lewis should retract and apologize for saying.

Here are photos that directly contradict Lewis’s politically motivated lies.

Bernie Sanders not only marched with King in the 1960’s but got arrested for civil rights activism.



Also, please see this excellent article in Mother Jones that goes into greater detail of Bernie  Sander’s lifelong involvement with the civil rights movement.
