Congressman Hank “Guam” Johnson Claims NRA Only Opposes Obama Because He’s Black

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Surely the fact that Obama is attacking the 2nd amendment has nothing to do with a 2nd amendment civil rights lobbying group opposing him. It’s racism.

There can be no other explanation. For anything.

Obama picked a fight with the NRA. The NRA fought back. And fighting back is clear and conclusive proof of racism. If you fight back when you’re attacked, then you must be a racist.

Representative Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) said that the National Rifle Association (NRA) opposed President Barack Obama’s gun control plans because the group “still cannot get over” the fact that the president is “black.”

Following a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday, Rep. Johnson suggested that NRA opposition to Obama’s gun control policies was personal. CNSNews.com then asked Johnson, “You said just a minute ago that part of the NRA’s true colors was a personal dislike of the president. Why do you think that is?”

Rep. Johnson said, “First of all, he is a black. And as a black person being the president of the United States, that is something they still cannot get over.”

It seems more like it’s something that Hank Johnson can’t get over.  But we truly live in a wonderful time. Not only have we not gotten over racism, everything is racist now. Instead of being post-racial, Obama and his allies racialize everything. Opposing any element of their program can only be attributed to racism.

Don’t like high taxes? You’re a racist.

Don’t like seeing your civil rights taken away? You’re a racist.

Don’t like a huge national debt? You’re a racist.

Don’t think Guam will sink if too many people stand on it? Obviously, you’re a racist.

    I'd say this is what happens when people elect a politician on the basis of race, but with Hussein in office, such an observation is bitterly redundant.

    Here we go again, the "racist" bugaboo. How stupid do leftists think the rest of us are, even though we are "bitter clingers', even from as far away as Israel? What's going on here? Does he believe that some of us haven't studied their tactics, mostly via "Rules for Radicals"? Looks like it.

    In any case, he sounds like a leftist and a racist and that is that – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/01/leftist-dogma

    Hey Hank, newsflash: it's getting tiresome..old….

    From the mind of small petty,ignorant , bigoted people comes small petty ,ignorant ,bigoted ideologies.

    I think someone should start complaining about people who cling to their guns and drugs. The gangs are the real problem "clingers".

    Hank Johnson is just an Identity Politics drone.

    EPIC FAIL
    Get off the plantation you ignorant moron. Multiple usurpations of the Constitution by illegal alien Barack H. Obama II, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Barry Dunham have nothing to do with race, so get over it.

  • Ghostwriter

    I've got a question. Why does Senator Johnson think the NRA is being racist simply because they criticize President Obama? That's ridiculous. Presidents have been criticized since the beginning of America. Why they think President Obama should be immune from criticism is beyond me.

    News just in. "NRA endorses white NY Gov Cuomo's NY SAFE Act and would support national gun control if only Biden were President."

    It's a pity Johnson can't be charged with talking without neurones.

    It seems that every time he bothers to open his mouth, about anything, he proves he doesn't have two neurones to rub together.

    By the way, anybody remember the time Charley Rangell said "It's not Sp*c and N*gger anymore. Now, it's Let's cut taxes."? Man he was calling dog whistles before it was cool!

    I don't guess any of you denials of the fact that most of the Right and the new republican party are racists don't remember that even before Obama was sworn in to begin his first term that 14 or so members of the Republican Party clandestinely plotted to undermine the president’s credibility by agreeing to refuse to act on legislation that the president favored.

    I'm sure that those apologist for the racists are ready with pat answers as to why a meeting attended by some of the most powerful people in the Republican Party, including Newt Gingrich, Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, Dan Lungren, Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, John Ensign and South Carolina GOP Sen. Jim DeMint. Additional attendees were Jon Kyl, Frank Luntz, Pete Hoekstra, Kevin McCarthy, Jeb Hensarling and Pete Sessions.

    This never happened to any of the other 43 white men by either party. But no it wasn't racist. Yeah, I have a lot of beach front property to sell you.

      Almost SIX YEARS AGO, as then-candidate for US President, Barak Obama promised to close the detention facility at Guantanamo (aka "Gitmo") within one year of being elected. Current FACTS make it self-evident that he lied to the American people. (Exactly as Bill Clinton did when he looked into TV cameras, shook his finger at those cameras for emphasis, and told the American people "I did not have sex with that woman.") So does pointing out that the current President OBVIOUSLY lied make me a racist?

    0 was groomed for the position he is in by the Communist Party USA. They purposely chose a black politician so they could use the race card to destroy America. That is why the term is over used. If it is repeated over and over and over again stupid people…low information people start to believe it's true..it works on the subconscious level of mind control.

    It seems there is another reason to absolutely HATE Chuck Hagel. His former Company is Election Systems & Software/Diebold – which now counts the votes in most elections and are the machines that were causing the most trouble in this last election. http://www.westernjournalism.com/did-obama-steal-the-ele...

    Race the weapon of destruction to destroy USA has been unleashed by a black Prez no less. He is using "R" with a gusto unseen in my lifetime. Since almost ALL (99%) Dems have joined the "R" brigade with the same gusto the USA cannot survive as a freedom loving nation. I pray we can overcome this plague of correctness.

    Here is just another example of Cultural Marxism which has one of their elements, affirmative action. We hire or vote for someone based on the color of their skin, race, sex, etc. but never on their knowledge, skills and abilities. Apparently the voters in this idiots district are just as stupid as the idiots that voted for Obama, our dear leader that is pushing to a global Caliphate. Look up UN Resolution 16/18 and go to YouTube and watch a briefing by Stephen Coughlin: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation and its Role in Enforcing Islamic Law.

  • Viet Nam veteran

    P.S. for bill K. – President Obama is a white President also; if you don't think so, then you've never seen pics of his mother. Lying about closing "Gitmo" is lying…and that has ZERO to do with race, skin color, or etc.

    With regard to Daniel Greenfield, there are worse writers with blogs, I just can’t think of any. And, as one can see, this is the only comment after 7 months of this tripe being posted. And, how totally hilariously perfect that DG is a “Shillman” Fellow! You just can’t make this stuff up.
