Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) plays the race card on the House floor against Joe Wilson

Congressman Suggests People Will Don ‘White Hoods’ If Wilson Not Rebuked

In fact, Rep. Johnson not only publicly called Rep. Wilson a racism supporter, but also raised the specter of the KKK rising again if Rep. Wilson is not punished sacrificed as propitiation to the gods.

In an obvious reference to the Ku Klux Klan, Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., said Tuesday that people will be putting on “white hoods and white uniforms again and riding through the countryside” if emerging racist attitudes, which he says were subtly supported by Wilson, are not rebuked. He said Wilson must be disciplined as an example.

I’m surprised he didn’t call for a treason trial for insulting the monarch.

So this is what is meant by “hope and change”? how is this not the fear-mongering that the Democrats have lobbed against all their opponents.

And for that matter, how is it not a violation of House rules to accuse one’s colleague of being a supporter of racism?
