Leading Democrat Congressman Goes Full-On Anti-Semitic

Leading Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson (Fascist – GA) who once expressed concern on the House floor that positioning 8,000 Marines on Guam would cause the island to “tip over and capsize,” went full-on anti-Semitic on Monday while speaking at an anti-Jew meeting on Monday.

Hank Johnson, a member of the House Armed Services Committee and Congressional Black Caucus, compared Jews to insects — specifically “termites” — as the Washington Free Beacon reported:

PHILADELPHIA—A Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee compared Jewish Israeli settlers to termites on Monday while speaking at an event sponsored by an anti-Israel organization that supports boycotts of the Jewish state.

Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) launched into a tirade against Israel and its policies toward the Palestinians, comparing Jewish people who live in disputed territories to “termites” that destroy homes. Johnson also compared Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a remark that drew vocal agreement from those in the room.

“There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself, there has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever increasing rate to the point where it has become alarming,” Johnson said during an event sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, an anti-Israel organization that galvanizes supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS.

The people of Georgia’s 4th Congressional District should be ashamed of themselves for re-electing this bigot.

In 2012, the man who has been rightfully referred to as the “dumbest man in Congress” (move over Nancy Pelosi!), apologized to “little people” after he referred to them as “midgets,” a politically incorrect term. Instead, he referred to them as “abnormally small people” in his apology and promised to discontinue using the “M-word.”
