Georgia: Hank “Guam” Johnson(D-umb) arrested in voting rights protest

NYP: Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) and eight others were arrested Thursday after they took part in a voting rights protest that illegally blocked the door of a Senate office building on Capitol Hill.

Johnson, 66, who has represented a majority-African American district east of Atlanta since 2007, tweeted that he was “protesting against Senate inaction on voting rights legislation & filibuster reform.

“In the spirit of my dear friend and mentor – the late Congressman John Lewis – I was getting in #goodtrouble,” Johnson added.

Earlier Thursday, Johnson joined other members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) at a rally outside the Supreme Court to urge the Senate to scrap its legislative filibuster, which requires 60 votes to pass most bills. Many Democrats say the change is needed to pass the For The People Act, which would mandate early voting and automatic voter registration nationwide, and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which looks to restore protections from the 1965 Voting Rights Act. read more

  1. Keep beating that dead horse Hank, and maybe it will get you (and your people) across the finish line.

    The-Congressional-Black-Caucus-That-Won’t-Allow-Black-Conservatives. Ohhhhh, THAT CBC! THOSE idiots!

    Even though they’ve been playing in Kongress for too long, they STILL don’t understand how the game is played. You DON’T change the rules (filibuster) to pass a bill (For The DildoCrats Act) you want one day, then change it again the next day to block your opponent’s bill.

  3. This should be an automatic expulsion from congress but we all know he will be lionized as a hero by the communist left.

  4. I know it’s an exercise in futility but for my money this guy is absolutely positively without a doubt no wiggle room or equivocation the dumbest congressman to ever in the history of humanity, ever be elected to represent any sentient beings in any forum.

    It would be too easy (and wrong) to nominate Pelosi, Nadler,Schiff, or Swalwell, these people are not dumb. Yes, they are hundred other bad things but nor dumb. Maxine Waters is a close second, a real close almost flip ’em second.

    Here’s the deal, if there is no consequences for breaking the law, then the law is invalid, annulled, meaningless. Was this walking humanoid flotsam handcuffed, booked, and given a court date to answer? If not then the system is irretrievably broken.

  5. Here’s to hoping Hank finds out whether or not Guamtonimo tips over when all

  6. Racist bag of stupid should be sent as an ambassador to Guam. He’s dumb enough to believe it’s a foreign country.

  7. It seems more than reasonable to assume that ‘certain’ ethnic’ groups are pre-wired to think bullshit, horseshit and ‘what-about-me’ concepts regarding anything negative about ‘THEIR’ group.

    ANY faults that ‘their group’ may display can ABSOULTLY be blamed on someone else.

    Anyone in ‘their group’, most especially including themselves, are to be completely absolved from ANY wrong doing.

    This is the shit that happens when certain ‘people’ are pampered, babied, coddled or otherwise relieved of ANY responsibility.

  9. The guys a fucking total retard. And unfortunately a direct reflection on his electorate. Which is why we need a new Constitutional Amendment requiring an IQ test before you run for office or vote. Old Hank belongs in a mental institution and instead, he’s helping set policy. Fuck Me.
