‘Occupy Atlanta’ Censures Civil Rights Icon John Lewis with Marxist Tactics (Video)

|MARXISTS DON’T NEED HIM ANYMORE|
The Marxists are feeling so empowered these days that they feel they don’t need Lewis anymore.
This past Friday, U.S. representative John Lewis (D-GA) went to Five Points in downtown Atlanta to support the local offshoot of ‘Occupy Wall Street.’ However, Lewis met the crude face of a Marxist dictatorship. The leftist protesters employed a tangle of absurd procedures and cult-like “repeat after me” chants to deny the congressman a chance to speak. This is what Marxists call “consensus” and “democracy.”
Many curious citizens and media outlets came to the first Occupy Atlanta event, and were visible shocked and confused by the consistent Marxism employed by the group. People abandoned their individuality and liberty to be absorbed into a hypnotizing collective. The facilitator made it clear that he was not a “leader” and that everyone was completely equal; words often spoken by leftists, but in this case they actually applied their philosophy. Into this surreal and oppressive environment, Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights hero and icon of American leftism, came to speak as has so often done at left-wing rallies and events in Atlanta. He is practically worshiped in Democrat circles, and was visibly stunned to see these Marxists turn him away. It was reminiscent of previous Marxist revolutions in history when those who ignorantly supported the revolutionaries are, over time, purged and rejected for the “good of the collective”, when their usefulness has expired.

Rep. John Lewis (D-issed) showed up to address “Occupy Atlanta,” and it was decided that the crowd should take a vote on it because Lewis wasn’t on the original schedule. Hilarity ensued in a cloud of “repeat after me.” Lewis’ attempt to address the gathering was apparently voted down (which would be today’s NYT headline if this were a Tea Party) in a show of “jazz hands” from the crowd.
