“This will get me in trouble, but I don’t care,” Johnson said. He argued that “groups of agitators” are to blame for the Capitol riot and not “tens of thousands of Trump supporters.”
“The group of people that supported Trump, the hundreds of thousands of people who attended those Trump rallies, those are the people that love this country,” Johnson told Weber. “They never would have done what happened on Jan. 6. That is a group of people that love freedom; that’s a group of people we need to unify and keep on our side.”
The woke Senator from Wisconsin is laying it all on the line, isn’t he? I mean , really, do you think he might pick up a brain while he is in the Land of Oz?
So, let’s begin by re-asserting what everyone else knew on January 6th and in the thousands of videos seen after that but NOW Sen. Johnson also knows this:
a) Of the tens of thousands of MAGA supporters in Washington on January 6th, a few hundred actually invaded the Capitol building while tens of thousands stood outside of it.
b) That invasionary element disrupted the Electoral College vote count and forced Senators to take shelter. They broke windows, broke doors, beat police officers, sprayed tear gas, and violently forced their way into the building. They stole mementos as trophies of their incursion.
c) That element was prepared to take prisoners and was shouting hang Mike Pence and seeking out Nancy Pelosi and AOC and any RINOs they could find.
d) The President ginned up his base and they believed they were acting on instructions from President Trump to “Stop the Steal”.
e) The President did nothing for two hours except rub his hands in glee as he watched everything unfold on TV.
With a medal of courage from the lion in Oz, Sen. Johnson doesn’t care if you know the truth that the people who committed this disruption are the ones who were inside the Capitol Building and not outside of it. NOW Sen. Johnson says it was just some agitators carrying Trump flags, shouting Trump slogans, and stopping the steal but they were not really MAGA supporters.
Sen. Johnson says this even though there is a photo of Roger Stone (dear friend of Pres. Trump) and six Oath Keepers (far-right anti-government militia) together in Washington that day.
Sen, Johnson goes on to say that this “insurrection” was no big deal. (I hope he finds a brain soon.) AND blames the House Managers for cheating on the delivery of evidence.
Johnson said in the interview that the videos were “highly selectively edited” and that the trial lacked due process. He also questioned whether the group was truly an “armed” insurrection.
“When you hear the word ‘armed,’ don’t you think of firearms? Here’s the questions I would have liked to ask — how many firearms were confiscated? How many shots were fired? I’m only aware of one, and I’ll defend that law enforcement officer for taking that shot, it was a tragedy, but I think there was only one,” Johnson said. “If that was a planned armed insurrection, man, you had really a bunch of idiots.”
(Due Process? More evidence that Sen Johnson doesn’t have a brain. There is no due process in an impeachment. It is not a criminal trial! Sheesh. Maybe he should read Mark Twain: “It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”)
So now Senator Johnson is claiming this just didn’t live up to the claim of being a planned armed insurrection! This is how Senator Johnson lies. He lies by conflation: mixing two things up and then saying: See? It doesn’t measure up!
I think Senator Johnson doesn’t measure up as a Senator for the United States of America. He falls woefully short because he lacks a brain and he lacks courage.
I don’t think he has a heart either. To the best of my knowledge, Senator Johnson has not expressed his empathy to his colleagues who were emotionally impacted by the days events. Nor to the families who lost their loved ones on that day.
Maybe Senator Johnson should ease on down that yellow-brick Republican road in 2022 and let a better American take his place. Or else fly his monkey-ass back into the sky.
p.s. Aren’t you getting a little tired of Republicans saying that it is all a fraud and the Dems are making things up? I am.
