Stupidity and power are a very dangerous mix.

“We need a constitutional amendment that would allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations,” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) was quoted as saying by CNS News.

He reportedly made these comments while speaking at the Annesbrooks HOA candidate Forum held last month.

In a video obtained by the website, Johnson asserts that “corporations control … patterns of thinking.”

“They control the media. They control the messages that you get,” he added. “And these folks … are setting up a scenario where they’re privatizing every aspect of our lives as we know it. So, wake up! Wake up! Let’s look at what’s happening.”

Notice that Johnson isn’t bugged by the ability of Big Labor to extract billions of dollars from workers and then use those dollars to power political speech and action that those workers may oppose. That’s fine. It’s corporations that are the problem.

Now, show of hands. Which of you dastardly corporations controlled Hank’s pattern of thinking when he said he feared that the island of Guam might capsize? Was it you, Koch Industries? How about you, Halliburton?

Let me lay some science on Rep. Johnson. You’re not going to get your amendment, and Guam is in no danger of capsizing.

Go ahead, play the race card. Get it out of your system.
