Democratic Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson took to the floor of the House of Representatives Monday to claim that there was an “open season” on black men in America, and berate his colleagues for failing to act to curb police violence. (VIDEO: CNN Guest: ‘American Sniper’ Helped Create ‘Open Season’ On Muslims)

“It feels like open season on black men in America, and I’m outraged,” Johnson said. “In fact, all Americans are at risk when bad actors in law enforcement use their guns instead of their heads.”

“Despite bipartisan nationwide calls for action and despite my bills to reform the broken grand jury process, hold police accountable and end militarization, and despite my colleagues’ bills to encourage body cameras, this Congress does nothing,” he continued.

Aside from using his elected position to make absurd, racially-charged statements, Johnson is best known for expressing concern that the island of Guam would tip over and capsize if there were too many people on it.
