Georgia Democrat Who Once Called Jews “Termites” Says Trump is Too Polarizing


You may remember Georgia Democrat Hank Johnson as the Congressman who once claimed Guam might tip over due to overpopulation. Now he’s at it again.

Democrat Who Compared Jews To ‘Termites’ Says Trump Is Too Polarizing

A congressional Democrat who previously referred to Israeli Jews as “termites” declared on Friday that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was too polarizing to be president. At a Congressional Black Caucus press conference on Friday afternoon, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) attacked Trump over his previous demands to see President Barack Obama’s birth certificate and said that Trump “continues to stoke the fires of polarization.”

This is the same Hank Johnson who recently compared Jews who were living peacefully in Israel to “termites.”

“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,” he said of Jewish Israeli settlers.

The Anti-Defamation League excoriated Johnson for his comments, noting that Johnson’s statement perpetuated the “demonization, dehumanization of settlers.”

The media rarely pays much attentions to anything Johnson says.

After all, we can’t make Democrats look bad, can we?
