John Lewis tells D.C. crowd he will not attend Netanyahu speech -

http://mondoweiss.net/2015/02/refuse-netanyahu-speech

All Democratic folks in Congress should have the courage to do what Rep. Lewis is doing and "turn their back" on this POS and his pro-war message - and the republic insult of going around the person (POTUS) who is supposed to be in charge of US foreign policy.

I fear that not many will - giving the warmongers and profiteers valuable propaganda points.

Maybe some of the Dems who do attend will call out "You lie!" every time the yahoo opens his trap - there is precedent for that kind of welcome, as proudly given to Obama by the GOPsters.

In reality, not much will come of this. A few will stand up against bigotry and tyranny, but not enough.

WHY NOT?

Netanyahu knows Obama is being rolled by Iran and he'll give away the store and let Iran have Nukes.

Israel can't allow that because the Mullahs are bat shit crazy and will chuck it at Israel (which will probably make Obama happy)

and the disaster they had created and manufactured.

And while maybe Pelosi did go outside normal channels, it was NOT an invite to address CONGRESS that was designed to specifically attack the foreign policy of the US.

Of course, the right went after the Dixie Chicks for badmouthing Bush while overseas performing a concert.
Evidently, that is far worse than insulting the President, and the nation, to our face in the very halls of Congress.

Just another false equivalency fail.

46. Israel KNOWS that the American MIC makes a FORTUNE off of the turmoil they and we

continuously generate in the region, and that the MIC will force the government (and we taxpayers) to pay billions every year to maintain that apartheid regime.

It is a mutually-beneficial, corruption scam.

So Israel can do whatever extremist shit it wants, killing however many innocents it likes, and the US will never abandon it or even reduce the amount of money we spend to prop it up.

Some might call it blackmail or extortion.
Some would also call it treason to pursue policies that put another nation's priorities before our own.

and remember when Joe Lieberman was running for VP and he won enough votes to be elected, he was called Joe Soreloserman when Bush was SELECTED NOT ELECTED so this is all about being anti-Obama and nothing more.

9. Seems to be a typical

 

leftist liberal race baiter (not all leftists).

Charges about Tea Party using racial epithets
In March 2010, a report that Lewis and another black Congressman, Andre Carson, had been called nigger by Tea Party protesters outside the Capitol received media attention. Some conservative sources criticized the claim, saying that no video showed up to prove the charges, and the videotapes of the event that later surfaced seemed to in fact disprove them. The New York Times issued a correction in July 2010, acknowledging that there was no evidence of Tea Party members hurling racial epithets at Lewis and Carson. Andrew Breitbart offered a $100,000 reward for anyone who could provide audio or video evidence of one of these instances, but none surfaced.

fact in the article that I pointed to.

Now, please tell me how the source of the FACT of his boycott negates that truth.

My opinion is that all Democratic people in DC should also stay away.
Or. at least, treat him as badly as the GOPsters have done to Obama in that same chamber.

You can disagree with my opinion (I expect you do).
Address that instead of going off on a tangent that is meaningless.

And what was "veiled" in that story?

Was Lewis going to sit in the chamber, then SNEAK out?
Was he going to disrupt the speech like the GOP do to Obama, but do it in a sneaky and devious way (being veiled and all)?

And yahoo was a terrorist (look at his early history of killing Palestinians, or his massacre and subjugation of the Gazans today) who has illegitimately re-claimed some validity by being an elected official of that country.

He is scum and should not be allowed INTO the country, forget about speaking in Congress.

About Mondoweiss
Mondoweiss is a news website devoted to covering American foreign policy in the Middle East, chiefly from a progressive Jewish perspective.

It has four principal aims:

To publish important developments touching on Israel/Palestine, the American Jewish community and the shifting debate over US foreign policy in a timely fashion.
To publish a diversity of voices to promote dialogue on these important issues.
To foster the movement for greater fairness and justice for Palestinians in American foreign policy.
To offer alternatives to pro-Zionist ideology as a basis for American Jewish identity.



That's not remotely "Israel hater". Though like most sane human beings, they aren't fans of Likud Zionfascism.

25. 3 House Democrats to Skip Netanyahu Speech

Three prominent House Democrats are vowing to skip Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress next month, saying they disapprove of House Speaker John Boehner's decision to invite the Israeli leader without consulting President Barack Obama.

Reps. John Lewis of Georgia, G.K. Butterfield of North Carolina and Earl Blumenauer of Oregon said they won't attend Netanyahu's March 3 speech.

The White House also hinted Thursday that Vice President Joe Biden may not attend Netanyahu's speech, which is expected to focus on Iran. Spokesman Josh Earnest said Biden takes "very seriously" his responsibilities as Senate president, including his ceremonial duty to attend joint sessions of Congress. However, Earnest noted that Biden missed a joint session in 2011 because he was traveling abroad.

Earnest said the vice president's travel schedule for early March has not been finalized.
