Former Black Panther To Tucker Carlson: Congressman John Lewis “Presided Over The Destruction of Black America”

Vietnam veteran and former "Berkeley Black Panther" liberal turned conservative author, Mason Weaver, appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight with some harsh words for Civil Rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga), who recently referred to President-elect Trump as illegitimate. Weaver considers Lewis a turncoat who has been "collaborating with the Democrat party to oppress black America."

Weaver begins with a short history lesson [links added for context]: 

"In the early 70's and late 60's, we were demonstrating and protesting for the right to compete as adult citizens of America, we were not demonstrating to be taken care of. Congressman Lewis - he walked across the Pettus bridge and they beat him and ran over him, but those were Democrats. It was Democrat George Wallace [who] stood in the schoolhouse door, it was Democrat Bull Connor that oppressed [black] folks...

 

...he [Lewis] was fighting Democrats, but after they beat his behind on that bridge and ran over him and stomped him in the ground, he got up and turned and joined them!"

Weaver then went on to describe how Democrat leadership has destroyed black communities:

"Every district they [black Democrats] own and control is a ghetto hell hole. Is a place that no one wants to go to. They're in control of every inner city school system, every inner city police, every inner city jail, they produce nothing but drugs and misery. They should be ashamed of themselves. I don't understand why any black person could be a democrat."

In closing, Weaver brings it back to Congressman Lewis:

"The Democrat party has always been the party of abuse, the party of the Klan, the party that went to war to keep slaves - the party that's always been [about] the destruction of black people. Mr. Lewis, you have presided over the destruction of black America, and you owe us an apology."
