This so called Senator Ron Johnson from the otherwise great state of Wisconsin must have picked up his brain as an afterthought from 7-11 one night. He’s trying to peddle a conspiracy theory that the left was actually responsible for the insurrection at the Capitol on 1/6. He entered into the Congressional Record a screed from an extremist right wing website that the rioters were provocateurs and fake Trump supporters, along with their children and ordinary, peace-loving American citizens petitioning for change.
Right. I guess all of us who watched got it wrong, eh, Senator? I guess we didn’t see or hear what these thugs were screaming as they smashed police officers with fire extinguishers, flag poles, disassembled viewing stands, iron barriers, bear spray, powerful firecrackers, guns, and whatever else they could get their criminal hands on. Right– leftists who wore Trump hats, shirts, flags, and tattoos, yelling “Hang Pence and Pelosi”, and whose goal it was to stop the legal election of Joe Biden to the presidency. What matter that leftists never disguised themselves before at rallies. In fact, as authorities tell us, it was more white militias who loot and burn at rallies to make it look like antifa counterprotesters. Several white supremacist/Neo Nazis have been arrested for such crimes, whereas no antifa have ever been arrested for impersonating a Proud Boy.
So Mr. Johnson, where are you getting such ideas and tactics? Tactics, indeed, for it seems endemic to the present Republican Party that lies and false innuendos be spread helter-skelter out into a gullible population primed to believe such garbage. For what? To attract more voters so you won’t lose so many elections. Is that what you’re afraid of, Senator Johnson: that you’ll lose your next election and be forced to return to “spending more time with my family.”
You are an ignorant hypocrite, Senator, and should rightly resign from your present position. The Senate is a hallowed body, requiring integrity, intelligence, and humility. As your recent racist rant shows, you have none of those characteristics. You are morally empty, falling back on conspiracy theories because you really have nothing else. You are desperate, an empty shell of a human being, operating with a two-bit brain and no heart at all.
