GOTCHA POLITICS IS MEANINGLESS BECAUSE IT IS SO SHALLOW.
Those who practice it seek to intimidate people into "Being More Careful" about what they say in the future.
It is no surprise to me that Rep Hank Johnson was a featured speaker for an organization advocating to end the "Israeli Occupation" of Palestinian lands, including sanctions against "The Apartheid State".
I should note that one of the #Black Lives Matter demands upon the Mayor Of Atlanta was to end the Atlanta Police Department's joint training with the Israeli Police Force in terrorism prevention.
If there was a more insightful journalist who considered Hank Johnson's argument and general sentiment - they would go beyond "Gotcha" and find it strange that while the narrative of "Israeli Oppression and Aggression" against the Palestinians is standard fare among the Progressive Fundamentalist Leftist activists - THE VERY SAME LAND MASS that is occupied by ISRAEL, LEBANON, JORDAN AND SYRIA has a SUPERIOR FORCE that is causing mass Death, systematic Destruction and Upheaval of people that has a far larger global effect - YET these same leftist activist voices have taken a very different disposition.
