Remember this moron? Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson? Super delegate for Hilary Clinton?
Super delegate Democrat aligned with Hillary Clinton apologized multiple times late Monday. He did so following a Washington Free Beacon report detailing the lawmaker’s comments comparing Jewish settlers to “termites.”
Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.), a Democratic superdelegate pledged to Clinton, likened Jewish citizens living in disputed areas of Israel and the Palestinian territories to “termites” that destroy homes.
Hank Johnson’s comments came during an event on the sidelines of the Democratic National Convention. The event was hosted by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, an anti-Israel organization that supports boycotts of the Jewish state.
Johnson, who also claimed that “Jewish people” were stealing Palestinian homes, apologized multiple times for his remarks after the Free Beacon report sparked outrage in the Jewish community and elsewhere.
“You see one home after another being appropriated by Jewish people who come in to claim that land just because somebody did not spend the night there,” he said, referring to claims that Israeli settlers plot to seize Palestinian land. ‘“The home their [Palestinian] ancestors lived in for generations becomes an Israeli home and a flag goes up,” he said, adding, “the Palestinians are barred from flying flags in their own neighborhoods.” Johnson went on to compare Lieberman to Trump as he lashed out against the Israeli government.
