In a recent interview with radio host and former Republican Michael Smerconish, a Georgia legislator weighed in on his disdain toward prominent black conservative Dr. Ben Carson.
Rep. Hank Johnson claimed that the retired neurosurgeon and rising star within the GOP relies on ignorant Obama-haters for his political success.
“When we have blacks like that trying to tape into the ignorance of people who have been whipped into a frenzy, like a lynch mob, and you go to try to garner support from these folks, I think it’s very disappointing that we would have that kind of political discourse going on in this country.”
Johnson also shared his view that Barack Obama – “one of the greatest presidents that we have had in the history of this nation” – has faced “nothing but opposition and confrontation and actual, personal dehumanization” since taking office in 2009.
