If you ever needed evidence that liberals HATE black conservatives, Rep. Hank Johnson should be proof enough. In an interview with Michael Smerconish of the Michael Smerconish Show, he said some pretty inflammatory things about Ben Carson, his supporters and other black conservatives.
“Yeah, I think Barack Obama has been one of the greatest presidents that we have had in the history of this nation. It’s unfortunate that — since he raised his hand and took the oath in his first inauguration — that he’s been met with nothing but opposition, and confrontation, and actual, personal dehumanization. And so what we’re seeing with — so I support the president, I believe he’s done as much as is humanly possible to advance the cause of justice and prosperity and freedom for all people, not just blacks, and not just here in America, but across the world. I think he has changed the paradigm of American foreign policy.
But it’s unfortunate that everything he does tends to pick up opposition from his political enemies, and it has become more than just political — it’s personal enemies. And so, to the extent that we have African Americans trying to tap into that vein of ignorance, African Americans like Dr. Ben Carson, who is a very smart, well-educated man and knows exactly what he’s doing, when we have blacks like that trying to tap into the ignorance of people who have been whipped into a frenzy, like a lynch mob, and you go to try to garner support from those folks, I think it’s very disappointing that we would have that kind of political discourse going on in this country.
President Obama has not been opposed or confronted with “personal dehumanization.” It’s a complete and utter crock. Some of his policies have been opposed because of their wholly liberal bent – Obamacare, Green Energy to the Detriment of Cheap Energy, Higher Taxes, More Spending, More Welfare Waste, etc. Some of his measures have been opposed because they hurt – amnesty for five million illegals, the war on coal and oil, basically everything he’s done with Russia, China or Syria… etc. Some of his actions have been opposed because of their legality (or lack thereof) – amnesty again, his Executive Actions (which Democrats opposed under Bush), the attack on freedom of the press, the misuse of the IRS, Fast and Furious, Obamacare’s attack on the church, etc….
Pretending conservative opposition is personal or immoral is just stupid. It’s all political and done for very good reasons. Hank Johnson needs to wake up and take his medication.
