Democratic congressman: I have ‘no doubt’ Capitol rioters would’ve ‘lynched’ black lawmakers if not stopped by police

Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson (Ga.) said Saturday that barring resistance from police, he has “no doubt” that the riotous Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol last week would’ve continued on to “lynch” black lawmakers like him.

Johnson made the comments in an interview with the Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC during which he also claimed that the riots last Wednesday were “nothing but a race war that was about to be unleashed.”

He argued that had law enforcement not fired a shot killing one of the rioters, a 14-year Air Force veteran from San Diego named Ashli Babbitt, things would have ended much differently for him and other members of Congress, especially those who are black.

“Had it not been for the gunshot of the one shot fired by that plainclothes officer in the Speaker’s lobby right behind the House gallery … if those people had been able to get through, they would have had us who were in the gallery up on the third floor trapped,” he said.

“Rev. Al, when they finally got us out of there, we walked past spread-eagled rioters on the floor at gunpoint by the Capitol Hill police officers as we went down the steps. They had us surrounded up there on the third floor. And if that police officer had not fired and stopped the onslaught in the Speaker’s lobby, they would’ve cut off our escape route,” he continued. “They would’ve had us upstairs, and I have no doubt that some of us who look like me would’ve been hanging from the railings of the third floor, onto the House floor, swinging like … strange fruit. We would’ve been swinging from those railings.”

“[There were] somewhere between 30 and 40 [members of Congress inside the room]. They could’ve had their pick of who they wanted to make an example of. And they came to the Capitol to do business, and the business that they were about was to lynch some people,” he added. They talk about Mike Pence, they talk about Nancy Pelosi, but you and I know, Reverend Al, that one of us would’ve been hanging with them.”

Both Johnson and Sharpton noted that a noose and gallows had been erected outside the Capitol on the day of riots; however, it was not immediately clear if the structure was intended to be anything other than a protest prop. Some rioters also carried Confederate flags inside the Capitol after breaching security.

In the wake of the riot, Johnson has joined calls from several fellow Democratic lawmakers for President Trump to be removed from office either by impeachment or invocation of the 25th Amendment.

Democratic congressman says US justice system — which ‘feasts on black folks’ — should treat Trump, Republican lawmakers like ‘negroes’

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) said he believes that President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers supporting his bid to dispute the results of the 2020 presidential election should be treated like “negroes” have been treated by the criminal justice system in the United States.

Those lawmakers, according to Johnson, include Republican Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Josh Hawley (Mo).

He also said that the Democratic Party ought not turn the other cheek to the perceived misdeeds of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party at large.

What is he talking about?

According to a Tuesday report from
Mediaite, Johnson made the inflammatory race-related remarks Monday on SiriusXM’s “The Dean Obeidallah Show.”

Obeidallah told Johnson that he believed it would be “detrimental to our party” that for the sake of unity, the Biden administration simply said, “‘Trump did some bad things, but look forward.'”

“It would be so destructive to our party if that is the way we go,” he added.

Johnson responded, “You can’t let this behavior slide, you can’t ignore it and hope that it’s not going to happen again. You see what’s shaping up for the future with guys like Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz who are looking to turn the Trump Republican Party into the Trump Republican Party on steroids.”

The Georgia Democrat added that conservative Republican lawmakers will be certain to quickly learn that they “will not be allowed to get away with what Donald Trump did.”

“We have got to make sure that those who come after Donald Trump know that they will not be allowed to get away with what Donald Trump did, that they will be held accountable,” he insisted. “They will be treated, yes, like ‘negroes’ — they will be perp-walked to the jail, handcuffed not in front of them, but behind them. They will be booked, fingerprinted, have to make bond, and have to hire a lawyer just like everyone else and go through the system.”

Johnson explained that the U.S. justice system “feasts on black folks.”

“[F]or once it needs to turn its attention to what this man has done to turn our country into something that we just don’t need to let it get to,” he explained. “He can’t be allowed to get away with it because if we allow him to get away with it, there will be others who will try to do the same thing, and we don’t even want them to think about doing what Trump has done.”

What’s a brief history on his remarks?

Johnson’s remarks come on the heels of introducing a resolution to censure Trump over his call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

The president in recent days has come under fire for a recently published phone call with Raffensperger.

In a reported hourlong phone call, Trump appeared to repeatedly urge the Georgia secretary of state to “find” enough votes to help reverse the state’s election results.

In the measure, Johnson has called on Trump to “retract and disavow this unlawful and unconstitutional behavior” and to recognize President-elect Joe Biden as winner of the 2020 presidential election.

“President Trump’s actions and statements on this call demonstrate an attempt to willfully deprive the citizens of Georgia of a fair and impartial election process in direct contravention of both federal law and the laws of the state of Georgia,” Johnson’s resolution added.

While The Masses Panicked Over A Virus: U.S. House Wrote A Bill Will Ban “Assault Weapons”

While the majority of the country has been laser-focused on the coronavirus, stocking up on decades worth of toilet paper, and  mass purchasing Clorox wipes, the United States House of Representative wrote a bill that will ban “assault weapons.”

Representative Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, introduced H.R. 5717 on January 30, which would, among other items, ban the purchasing and possession of assault weapons, according to USA Today. Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., introduced in February the Senate version of the bill, S.3254.  Not long after, the coronavirus hype was all over mainstream media burying the news of this draconian legislation.

The legislation introduced a variety of reforms with the intent to “end the epidemic of gun violence and build safer communities by strengthening Federal firearms laws and supporting gun violence research, intervention, and prevention initiatives.”

It would require state law enforcement authorities to be notified when a background check is denied and mandate the attorney general to issue an annual report to Congress detailing the number of background check denials.

It would also necessitate all firearm owners to obtain a federal firearms owner’s license, although purchases made before the enactment of the bill are exempt.

And the bill, as correctly stated by the Military Arms Channel, would make it illegal “to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.” –USA Today

The bill defines a semiautomatic assault weapon as any firearm with the capability to “accept a detachable magazine” and either a pistol grip, forward grip, grenade launcher, barrel shroud, threaded barrel or a folding, telescoping or detachable stock.

The government is, of course, exempted from the assault weapons ban. Law-enforcement officers (and other state agents) can possess these firearms as can those who are providing security at nuclear energy facilities. Firearms that are “manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action,” have “been rendered permanently inoperable” or are antique are exempt from the ban as well.

Neither bill has passed, and it would still be needing President Donald Trump’s signature to become law. However, we thought it important to let you all know what’s going on behind the screens while we direct our attention to a viral outbreak. If you thought things were totalitarian now, just wait…it could get much uglier.

Police forces across the United States have been transformed into extensions of the military. Our towns and cities have become battlefields, and we the American people are now the enemy combatants to be spied on tracked, frisked, and searched. For those who resist, the consequences can be a one-way trip to jail or even death. Battlefield America: The War on the American People is constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead’s terrifying portrait of a nation at war with itself. In exchange for safe schools and lower crime rates, we have opened the doors to militarized police, zero-tolerance policies in schools, and SWAT team raids. The insidious shift was so subtle that most of us had no idea it was happening. This follow-up to Whitehead’s award-winning A Government of Wolves is a brutal critique of an America on the verge of destroying the very freedoms that define it. Hands up!?the police state has arrived.
