The director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the Department of Homeland Security, the Rev. Jamie Johnson, has resigned after CNN unearthed a series of racist and Islamophobic comments he made prior to taking office. Johnson was appointed to the position in April by then-Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly. This is Johnson speaking on a radio show in 2008.
Rev. Jamie Johnson: “And it’s an indictment of America’s black community, that has turned America’s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity.”
CNN also uncovered audio recordings of Johnson repeatedly disparaging the Islamic faith.
Rev. Jamie Johnson: “I agree with [conservative political commentator] Dinesh D’Souza, your friend and mine, who says, really, all that Islam has ever given us is oil and dead bodies over the last millennia and a half. And they are not our friends.”
