Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) gave a speech at Friendship Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he ignorantly bashed President Trump and everyone who voted ans supports him. Johnson compared Trump to Hitler, and claimed his supporters are uneducated racist drunks who are dying young because they are poor. These kind of statements are rather alarming coming from a congressman. It shows ow Democrats truly feel about any Conservative and if you don’t vote for Trump you support Democrats radicalism.
“Americans elected an authoritarian, an anti-immigrant, racist strongman to the nation’s highest office. Donald Trump and his ‘Make America Great Again’ followers who want to return American back to a time where white men and white privilege were unchallenged, and where minorities and women were in their place.”
“Donald Trump supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early. Their lifespans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair.”
“Charismatic and a good public speaker, deceptive, and cunning, Adolf Hitler rose to power to lead Germany in 1932 after Democratic elections. He rode a wave of nationalism and anti-Semitism to power. Replace anti-Semitism with ‘all Latinos crossing our borders are rapists, drug dealers, and murderers,’ does that sound familiar?”
“Much like how Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican party,” Johnson continued. “Hitler was accepting of violence toward the achievement of political objectives. Trump encouraged violence against protesters at his rallies, and his messaging about Charlottesville, that there were bad people on both sides, sent a powerful message of approval to the far right racists in America.”
“Americans, particularly black Americans, can’t afford to make that same mistake about the harm that could be done by a man named Hitler or a man named Trump,” Johnson added.
