if you dont know why she would single out RON Johnson:
“It would be OK, for example, to guffaw at Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, after he sat in the Senate on Tuesday, during the first hearing investigating the January coup attempt by followers of then-President Donald Trump, and offered an alternative reality about what occurred. The notion was so far from the plain truth that it would earn the senator a place in the political fantasists’ hall of fame.”
Johnsons suggested, quoting from a discredited article in the Federalist, that the violent insurrection that left several dead and dozens injured, was just a “jovial,” “festive” event that was manipulated by enemies of the former president. That is instead of what it was, according to the FBI, police and our own eyes and ears: A violent attack by supporters of a president who had just lost an election and had riled his backers with the Big Lie — the baseless claim that he and they had been robbed.
For five long minutes Johnson read approvingly the claims that the Capitol assault was a false-flag operation conducted by “agents provocateurs, fake Trump protesters,” and “a disciplined, uniformed column of attackers.”
and the connection to the earlier discussion about Flynn and the cocoon
“Polls show most Trump supporters believe the Big Lie. A Quinnipiac poll found 76% of Republicans believe that there was widespread fraud in the presidential election, undercutting the legitimacy and of the Biden administration. A USA Today/Suffolk University poll found 58% of Trump voters believe the Johnson theory that the Jan. 6 insurrection was mostly Antifa.“
The FBI, incidentally, says there’s no evidence of Antifa involvement.
During the hearing Tuesday, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar asked the witnesses, law enforcement officials, whether the attack was the work of White supremacist and extremist groups. They all said yes.
As the hearing ended, Klobuchar tried to clarify the record, given Johnson’s pronouncements. She tweeted: “…‘Provocateurs’ did not storm the Capitol. They were not ‘fake Trump protestors.’ The mood on January 6th was not ‘festive.’ That is disinformation.”
THE REASON “58% of Trump voters believe the Johnson theory that the Jan. 6 insurrection was mostly Antifa” IS BECAUSE OF THE COCCON
EVEN WITH ALL THE ARRESTS, PICTURES, VIDEOS, AUDIO . . . IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOU NEVER SEE IT
@JBear, a rational person would think she crushed the GOP because she pointed out that a true loon liar like Johnson seems to reflect the GOP. Most people would object to being identified as crazy liars.
Some other people . . well, not so much.
