Remember how Rep. Hank Johnson was all worried about Guam capsizing if too many military folks went there?
I guess it'll come as no surprise that he's still just as much of a moron as ever, according to this article, which quotes Hank as saying (emphasis mine),
"These corporations, along with the people they support, other millionaires who they’re putting into office, are stealing your government. They’re stealing the government and the U.S. Supreme Court was a big enabler with the Citizens United case. They control the patterns of thinking. They control the media. They control the messages that you get. So, you are being taught to hate your government--don’t want government, but keep your hands off of my Medicare by the way. I mean, we are all confused people and we’re poking fingers at each other saying, well you’re black, you’re Hispanic, immigration, homosexuals. You know, we’re lost on the social issues, abortion, contraception. And these folks are setting up a scenario where they’re privatizing every aspect of our lives as we know it. So, wake up! Wake up! Let’s look at what’s happening. We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations.”
Hear that, clever and competent readers? That's a representative of the people, saying that free speech rights need to be controlled.
Notice that he and other liberals never seem to have an issue with the "so-called free speech rights" of UNIONS, now do they? It's just those eeeeeeeevil corporations.
There is one phrase from Hank's diatribe that I agree with him wholeheartedly on. The part where he says, "we are all a confused people." If he's referring to his congressional colleagues, then yes, I'd say he's right on the money there.
Favorite tweet ever? This one.
