A looney Georgia Democrat now says that the documents found on Biden’s own properties were planted. Brace yourselves, it’s about to get weird.

Democrats and President Biden have been embroiled in scandal after scandal these past few months, from the classified documents scandal to the ongoing protests at school boards regarding coronavirus guidelines and critical race theory. But one of the most outrageous statements came from longtime Democratic Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson, who has been representing his area of Georgia in the House of Representatives for more than 15 years.

From claiming Guam will “capsize” due to too many people to comparing Jewish Israeli settlers to “termites,” Johnson has made some of the wildest and most outrageous statements since taking office in 2007.

Johnson’s most recent outrageous statement was defending Biden amid the classified documents’ scandal that has rocked the West Wing. Johnson claimed that the documents may have been “planted” and that he was “suspicious of the timing” surrounding the classified document batches’ discoveries.

Johnson’s most famous statement was sharing his worry that the U.S. territory of Guam could “capsize” if too many people were on the island. During a 2010 House Armed Services Committee hearing on a planned military buildup in the territory, Johnson said, “My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.”

Despite the retired Admiral Robert Willard’s assurance that the population of Guam was only around 175,000, Johnson’s statement was widely ridiculed. Johnson would later claim he was joking when he made the statement.

During a House Judiciary Committee hearing in September of last year, Johnson also claimed that “MAGA Republicans” descended on school board meetings similarly to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. He accused Texas Republican Rep. Chip Roy of pushing “White power” and “White privilege” for objecting to his claims that America was presided over by a “racist Senate.”

Not only that, but Johnson also took heat in 2016 when he compared Jewish Israeli settlers in disputed areas with Palestinians to “termites” eating homes at a U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation event. The U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is an anti-Israel organization that promotes the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement targeting Israel.

It is clear that Hank Johnson has been pushing some of the most outrageous and offensive statements since taking office over 15 years ago. From Guam capsizing to comparing Jewish Israeli settlers to termites, Johnson’s statements have been nothing short of egregious.
