Snowflake-Elect

Just a few more days left for this series

Yes, time is running out. A few more days, and I will no longer be able to use the title. The Snowflake-Elect on Friday will become the Snowflake President. Hopefully there will be more fun before time runs out.

Take for example, how the Snowflake-Elect reacted to a reproach from Congressman John Lewis, representing Georgia District 5:

Jan 14

Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to……

Jan 14

mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!

Yes, Congressman Lewis announced he does not think Trump is a “legitimate president.” The Donald, famous for trading insult for failure to genuflect, responded yesterday on Twitter, essentially saying Lewis is all talk and no action. Excuse me while I switch on the backup lights. A mass of irony has just knocked out all the power in the neighborhood.

All talk and no action? Game on! Let’s go to the video tape.

That’s Donald Trump in  action. His life has been very much like this. When the going gets tough, well the going never does get tough.

Meanwhile, in a very different world:

From Wikipedia

The picture from Wikipedia shows: “Alabama State troopers attack civil-rights demonstrators outside Selma, Alabama, on Bloody Sunday, March 7, 1965.” From Wikipedia:

Lewis traveled the country encouraging students to spend their summer break trying to help people in Mississippi, the most recalcitrant state in the union, to register and vote. Lewis became nationally known during his prominent role in the Selma to Montgomery marches when, on March 7, 1965 – a day that would known as “Bloody Sunday” – Lewis and fellow activist Hosea Williams led over 600 marchers across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. At the end of the bridge, they were met by Alabama State Troopers who ordered them to disperse. When the marchers stopped to pray, the police discharged tear gas and mounted troopers charged the demonstrators, beating them with night sticks. Lewis’s skull was fractured, but he escaped across the bridge to Brown Chapel, the movement’s headquarter church in Selma. Before Lewis could be taken to the hospital, he appeared before the television cameras calling on President Johnson to intervene in Alabama. Lewis bears scars from the incident on his head that are still visible today.

Enough “action” for a lifetime most would say. If only that were all.

We eagerly await a man of action as our next president. In the meantime, join me on Friday to welcome the Snowflake-Elect to the head of the class.

And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
