#SweetHomeAlabama Congress CritterTerrie Sewell Faking the Funk One Photo Op at a Time

President Barack Obama greets 103-year-old Civil Rights legend Amelia Boynton Robinson with Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Ala., at the U.S. Capitol before delivering the State of the Union address in the House Chamber in Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2015 (Photo by P
Rep. Terri Sewell with President Obama and Civil Rights movement veteran Amelia Boynton Robinson.

Just when EYE think Mis-Representative Terri Sewell can't sink any lower, she does.  And, if there is any doubt the mainstream media enables false narratives,  look at the picture above then listen to Alabama State Senator Hank Sanders interview on Black Agenda Radio with Glen Ford, where he talks about her scheme to protect a racist southern icon,  enabled by non other than Rep. John Lewis.  SMH

State Sen. Hank Sanders and lots of other people in Selma, Alabama, want to name the Edmund Pettus Bridge for Amelia Boynton Robinson, the “Mother of Voting Rights” who died in August at the age of 110. Ms. Boynton Robinson was an activist in the 1920s, registered to vote in 1934, brought both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and SNCC to Selma, ran for Congress in 1964, was beaten and left for dead by police on Bloody Sunday, 1965, and continued her political work until a month before her death. Edmund Pettus, on the other hand, was a Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon. Hank Sanders won unanimous State Senate support for a bill to remove Pettus’s name, but “Congresswoman Terri Sewell interacted to try and prevent that name from being changed, and so did Congressman [John] Lewis,” said Sanders. “There was a concerted effort to keep the white supremacist’s name on the bridge.” Some in Selma believe the goal is to ultimately have the bridge named for John Lewis, who was also badly beaten on March 7, 1965. Rep. Sewell was rated Worst Black Congressperson on the CBC Monitor Report Card.

Psst...... Rep. Terri is not the time for photo ops and sound bites.  Just stop talking.  Do something for someone other than yourself for a change.

EYE Report.  YOU Decide.
