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

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.
