Democratic Congressman: Amend the Constitution to Control Speech (Video)

Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) is calling for an amendment to the US Constitution to control speech.
He also says “corporations control patterns of thinking.”

This is a one crazy cat.
CBS Local reported:

A Democratic representative is calling for an amendment to the United States Constitution that would allow for some legislative restriction of freedom of speech.

“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.”

Has this guy ever been brought in for a psychological exam?
Seriously.
