At a House Judiciary Committee meeting on Wednesday, smear merchant Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), best-known for his lunatic concern that too many troops stationed on Guam would cause the island to tip over, smeared parents at school board meetings as the equivalent of the “MAGA Republicans” who entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
“January 6 2021, will never be forgotten, an infamous day in American history. MAGA Republicans descended upon the Capitol, engaged in an insurrection,” Johnson lied. There was no insurrection.
“They occupied the Capitol. Five people were killed, hundreds injured, including hundreds of Capitol Hill police officers attacked and bludgeoned. It was a day that we’ll never forget,” Johnson continued.
Every bit of that statement is a lie too. Fact checks: 1) the only person killed that day was an unarmed Trump supporter shot dead by Capitol police; and 2) hundreds of Capitol Hill police officers were not attacked and bludgeoned.
Johnson went on to compare parents who protested school board meetings to the Capitol rioters.
“And people on the local level at affected school board meetings, they won’t forget the MAGA Republicans descending on their school board meetings after January 6. Like January 6, disrupting meetings,” Johnson said. “It was a quote coordinated attack happening across the country Americans won’t forget about it.”
Another lie: there was no “coordinated attack” on school boards. Parents across the country were legitimately, spontaneously outraged at the discovery that their children were being indoctrinated by a progressive educational agenda including the divisive racism of Critical Race Theory — an indoctrination Johnson supports.
Johnson also referred to a letter the National School Boards Association sent to the Biden administration demanding federal law enforcement’s help for the protesting parents, whom they smeared as “domestic terrorists.” The Department of Justice subsequently opened an investigation into those parents. Johnson supports treating these parents as domestic terror threats.
Johnson and his fellow Democrats are liars who will stop at nothing to seize and consolidate totalitarian power, including demonizing concerned parents as terrorist threats. Hank Johnson and his ilk are the true enemies of democracy.

In a January 1, 2019 speech at a Baptist church in Atlanta, Johnson likened President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. Among his remarks were the following:
- “Much like how Hitler took over the Nazi party, Trump has taken over the Republican Party.”
- “Hitler was accepting of violence towards the achievement of political objectives. Trump encouraged violence against protesters at his rallies.”
- “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.”
- “Americans elected an authoritarian, an anti-immigrant, racist strongman to the nation’s highest office. Donald Trump and his ‘Make America Great Again’ followers…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.”
