The Dumbest Man In Congress Just Called Dr. Ben Carson’s Supporters Ignorant

dr. ben carson

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), a man previously made famous for his belief that an island could somehow capsize and tip over, and who once lamented that his greatest fear involving budget cuts was to experience a “world without balloons,” claims that retired neurosurgeon and conservative candidate for President, Dr. Ben Carson, is an African-American trying to gain support from the ignorant.

Johnson, appearing on The Michael Smerconish Show, was discussing race relations under Obama, saying that the President has done “as much as is humanly possible.” He added that Obama is probably the greatest President our nation has ever seen.

The problem, Johnson contends, are ignorant black men like Ben Carson and his supporters who act “like a lynch mob” towards the President.

Via Mediaite:

Part of the problem, the congressman said, is that now “we have African Americans trying to tap into that vein of ignorance.” As his prime example, Johnson cited Carson:

[He] is a very smart, well-educated man and knows exactly what he’s doing, when we have blacks like that trying to tap 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 those folks, I think it’s very disappointing that we would have that kind of political discourse going on in this country.

He added that Carson is “appealing to the lowest common denominator.”

Take a listen to Johnson’s comments below …

And lest ye seek to question the intellectual credentials of the good Mr. Johnson, bear in mind that he once alerted this nation to a previously unforeseen crisis – that a Pacific island could actually tip over and capsize if too many Marines were stationed there.


We ask the readers, who is the ignorant one – Hank Johnson or Ben Carson?




  1. Roger says:

    You have to admit, ol’ Hank has a lot of experience with ignorance.

  2. Dion says:

    [He] is a very smart, well-educated man and knows exactly what he’s doing, when we have blacks like that trying to tap 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 those folks, I think it’s very disappointing that we would have that kind of political discourse going on in this country.
    He added that Carson is “appealing to the lowest common denominator.”

    Does this statement remind anyone else of the whole “Hope and Change” thing? Replace Carson with Obama and he has it exactly right.

  3. Rob says:

    Wow! What an ignoramus. He is describing exactly what Barack Obama did in 08. Shaking my head what a doofus

  4. Mark says:

    the congressmans ignorance is over shadowed by TX congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson.

  5. Jeff says:

    Wow, they’ll let anyone in Congress these days. This guy cant find anything wrong with Ben Carson, so he attacks his followers!

  6. Bruce says:

    I love these people who can’t find anything wrong with Dr. Carson’s integrity or character or accomplishments. They resort to the desperate tactics of yellow journalism and name calling. Let’s face it Rep. Johnson: you will never give half to society in your whole life over what Ben Carson has already given.

  7. Lon says:

    Hank Johnson opened his mouth and proved how really ignorant a democrat can be. I feel sorry for the poor man because there is no cure for stupid. Ben Carson is smarter than ol Hank can ever dream of being.

  8. Robert says:

    This guy is a place holder who does what he is told to do by party bosses, except when he opens his mouth. He certainly couldn’t work any place else but in the US Congress. This is what the federal goverment has become. How sad. God save our republic!

  9. Ohhh the irony.

    But you have to remember, this is the district that also gave us Cynthia McKinney.

    Must be something in the water.

  10. Ali says:

    That was very comical of an island tipping over its almost as like we all live in a boat and read stories that was make believe

  11. Spartacus says:

    The only reason this fool won in the first place was that he ran against an even bigger fool in the 2006 primary, the anti-Semitic and conspiracy theorist Cynthia McKinney who also got into trouble for assaulting an airport guard. McKinney was the incumbent (which says something for this Fourth District of Georgia), and Johnson capitalized on her own craziness to upset her in the Democratic primary. Since the district is predominantly black (and, of course, Democratic), Johnson never faces any opposition.

  12. Nancy says:

    Johnson is an idiot and everyone who voted for is an idiot who are so easily deceived. I guess they just need someone to tell them what they want to hear. Anything thing will do for the bitter blacks if it incites hatred and division and they have Obama and the likes of Johnson and the Congressional Black Caucus to ignite the fire of hatred in the hearts of the people who just don’t know better.

    They do absolutely nothing to lift the blacks up or do anything to help them get off the Government Plantation. They never inspire or encourage blacks or encourage to live moral constructive lives. They don’t tell them the value in self-respect when one lives a clean life, works to support their families and quit judging others by the color of their skin. If Obama, etal, cared about them they would be lifting up and encouraging them like MLK did and like Ben Carson does.

    The Obama administration has set blacks back 40 years. It’s really very sad….

  13. Rick says:

    Everybody knows Guam capsizes all the time. Then the tide comes in and puts it back up. What an idiot…lol

  14. Rick says:

    Really? WTF? How did this guy ever get elected? Oh yeah, a bunch of blacks voted him in. Fuksake

  15. Keith says:

    Geez….if I were a resident of Georgia I would be I would be so embarrassed to have this wingnut representing my state. Just sayin’…

  16. Jim says:

    Come on folks, this is a Saturday Night Live skit, jokes on us! They put this on to make people like us look stupid by having people replying seriously to this actors comment about the island tipping over. I suppose they wanted to see if anyone could be so stupid to believe someone could be so stupid as to think an island could tip over, I really doubt if it could happen because it is anchored down by big rocks….. apparently some of you fell for it…………”It’s Saturday Night”……..or is it the Twilight Zone where a man has become so stupid even the stupid think he is stupid, can’t be, that would be too stupid, the stupid jackass.
    Here is what I got out of what the genius said: “what’s the widest point of the part where the place of widensss is on the island if the island had a thinner spot than the widest spot which I think is 7 miles, is that correct General, the longest part going long wise is 24 miles but I think 12 miles is the same length by going long way if we double the part where I said 12 which I think makes 24 miles, is that right General?”
    “I was voted in at my neighborhood garage meeting, all 44 town members were in attendance, I was not the smartest but at least I know geography and mathmatiks.” So I personally consider tobe wize questions to the problems of global temperatures and what-not becauew the corel reefers are around the island in the water, isn’t that right General?

  17. n5ifi says:

    That’s ironic really because by not knowing that the island wasn’t going to tip over Hank Johnson has shown that he is quite………ignorant. Take it a step further. If Hank Johnson is ignorant and I think he most assuredly is ignorant that must mean that he thinks Ben Carson is trying to gain support from people like himself. The people that voted for Hank are primarily low income blacks so Hank must think that his supporters are ignorant people. Right?

  18. Roy says:

    Idiot…no need to say more. What a waste of skin.

  19. Charli says:

    I’ve never even heard of this guy. Is he for real? Obviously he is a nimcompoop! How in the hell did he ever get elected to Congress and why is he still there??? I’m simply amazed at the people running this country. I’m not ignorant and I would vote for Ben Carson any day of the week.

  20. Pierre says:

    Spot on, Congressman, complete and utter ignorance. They’re so ignorant and moronic and reactionary that they have no idea how ignorant and moronic and reactionary they are.

    A vicious cycle, being so stupid – but they band together to feel ignorant and “right” together.

  21. Gearld says:

    “Dumbest man in Congress”? I don’t think so. Dumbest man in America? That’s about the ticket. Only one dumber resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.

  22. C W says:

    Rep.Hank Johnson should have his brain examined by autopsy while he is still alive. What an ignoramus ! C.W.

  23. Donald says:

    Would he tip over and float away on one of his balloons?
    Every group, whether it is the House or the Senate or any other organized group needs their clowns. They need something to laugh at for comic release. I just feel sorry for the people of his distract that voted for this fool, it doesn`t say much for their intelligence. If he is their representive and the best they have to offer…………….

  24. Jeff says:

    ‘Ignance’ is following someone like Obama because he is half the color you are.

  25. John says:

    I got lost reading this. I actually thought Mr. McNut was describing President Obama whipping the masses into a frenzy, forming a lynch mob, playing on racial prejudices, and pandering to the ignorant people in America. Isn’t that what the last six years have been about? I’m sorry, Mr. NcNut, but this is one Island that isn’t going to tip over. This ship will be righted, and America will recover, because those ignorant people will not allow geniuses like you and Obama to destroy it.

  26. Bruce says:

    He’s breathtakingly stupid, but in being so is a perfect match for other CBC members.

  27. William says:

    Even a box of rocks has some use, I see nothing of value in Hank!

  28. Kenneth says:

    This guy doesn’t need to be calling someone ignorant. He needs to go to a home for Alzheimer’s. I can’t believe he is in Congress.

  29. Paul says:

    This nincompoop is a reflection of his constituency… There is more than one idiot in Congress…
