The Southern Poverty Law Center's Richard Cohen and Rep John Lewis (D-GA) Saturday in Selma appeared to suggest their followers could be rewarded if they martyred themselves to further their far-left "movement."
From the Montgomery Advertiser, "Lewis: More 'movement' martyrs needed in the coming years":
SELMA –Civil rights leaders and “foot soldiers” launched the Bridge Crossing Jubilee Saturday with the commemoration of an event that changed America.The SPLC's website has more:
“Congressman Lewis, I want to welcome you, your colleagues, and everyone on the pilgrimage to the hallowed ground of the Civil Rights Memorial,” SPLC President Richard Cohen said. “It honors those whose sacrifices, whose deaths, propelled the movement forward. Men and women, young and old, white and black – all of them are remembered here.It sounds like they're telling their followers they can achieve infamy and be enshrined in stone if they martyr themselves, does it not?
That strikes me as pretty heated rhetoric in this political climate, no?
I sure as hell can't imagine Tucker Carlson getting on the air on Monday and telling his followers "movement martyrs" are going to be needed to overcome the censorship of conservatives by the SPLC.
This is a real threat, as I've reported repeatedly on how leftists are throwing themselves in front of people's slowly moving cars in bids to become martyrs at protests across the country.
Why not encourage civil dialogue instead of martyrdom?
