Rep. John Lewis Says Rudy Giuliani’s Comments Represent “Scars and Stains” of Racism

Ever since President Obama took the oath of office, his opponents have john lewissought to paint him as un-American. They’ve accused President Obama of being a secret Muslim as well as harboring anti-American sentiments.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is the latest Republican to chime in and deride Obama as a president who doesn’t love America.

Rep. John Lewis, who marched alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., said during a USA Today interview that Giuliani’s comments represent the “scars and stains” of racism.

“It’s so strange, ever since he’s been president, people have been trying to take something from him that he is not American, that he was not born here,” Lewis said. “But we must keep in mind that the scar and stains of racism are still deeply embedded in American society. We have a distance to go. We are not done yet. We have not yet created a post-racial society.”

Giuliani received a tremendous amount of blowback after questioning Obama’s patriotism. This caused Giuliani to pen a new op-ed where he clarified his position.

“My blunt language suggesting that the President doesn’t love America notwithstanding, I didn’t intend to question President Obama’s motives or the content of his heart,” Giuliani wrote. “My intended focus really was the effect his words and his actions have on the morale of the country, and how that effect may damage his performance.”

He then explained where he believes Obama falls short.

“Irrespective of what a president may think or feel, his inability or disinclination to emphasize what is right with America can hamstring our success as a nation,” he wrote. “This is particularly true when a president is seen, as President Obama is, as criticizing his country more than other presidents have done, regardless of their political affiliation. Furthermore, this president sometimes seems to have a difficult time in expressing adequate support for important allies, particularly Israel, Ukraine and Jordan.”
