I have condemned any organizer of war, regardless of his rank or nationality.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

Nothing good ever comes of violence.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

The bombs in Vietnam explode at home; they destroy the hopes and possibilities for a decent America.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.


The chain reaction of evil--wars producing more wars -- must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war but the positive affirmation of peace.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is not enough to say we must not wage war. It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today is my own government.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

We have guided missiles and misguided men.

~Martin Luther King, Jr.


"There's no doubt that the great John Lewis of 50 years ago is different than the John Lewis today," West remarked. "He's my brother. I love him, I respect his personhood, but there's no doubt he's gone from a high moment of Martin Luther King-like struggle to now [a] neoliberal politician in a system that is characterized more and more by legalized bribery and normalized corruption. That's what big money does to politics. And the Clinton machine is an example of that." (Cornel West)

“I was chair of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee for three years, from 1963 to 1966. I was involved with the sit-ins, the Freedom Rides, the March on Washington, the march from Selma to Montgomery and directed (the) voter education project for six years. But I met Hillary Clinton. I met President (Bill) Clinton."

Well, there ya have it folks... This is the well respected civil rights leader John Lewis we’re talking about here. Who’s gonna disagree with John Lewis? Well, as it turns out, John Lewis disagrees with John Lewis!

Lewis contributed a section to a 2001 book called "Conversations: William Jefferson Clinton, from Hope to Harlem" which offers an African American perspective on President Clinton. In the book, Lewis states:

“The first time I heard of Bill Clinton was in the early 70s. I was living in Georgia, working for the Southern Poverty Law organization, when someone told me about this young, emerging leader in Arkansas who served as attorney general, then later became governor.”

Now, this was the first time that Lewis HEARD of Bill Clinton. When did he first “meet” him? Well…

“I think I paid more attention to him at the 1988 Democratic Convention, when he was asked to introduce the presidential candidate and took up far more time than was allotted to him. After he became involved with the Democratic Leadership Council, I would run into him from time to time. But it was one of his aides, Rodney Slater, who actually introduced us in 1991 and asked me if I would support his presidency.”

So, according to a statement made by John Lewis himself, he first met Bill Clinton in 1991. At the Congressional Black Caucus event on Thursday, he insinuated that he had “met” both Clintons in the 1960s civil rights era but here he says that he ran into Clinton from time to time “after he became involved with the Democratic Leadership Council.” Well, the Democratic Leadership Council was a non-profit organization founded in 1985. So, it appears that the earliest that Lewis could have “met” or “run into” Bill Clinton would have been 1985.
