Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson may be living proof of the necessity to supply proof of intelligence above mental disability.
The self-avowed Trump Zone resident has used his position as the Chairperson of the Senate Homeland Committee to advance Russian disinformation campaigns against:
- The F.B.I., accusing it of spying on Donald Trump.
- Ukraine regarding both the 2016 Presidential Election and Hunter Biden.
He also enabled Trumpist big lies about election fraud during the 2020 Presidential Election and attempted to steer blame Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the January 6, 2021, Trumpist Domestic Terrorist Attack on the Nation’s Capitol.
Now, this political imbecile went on conservative talk radio on Monday (February 15, 2021) and said the same January 6, 2021, Trumpist Domestic Terrorist Attack “didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me.”
Johnson went on further, commenting:
“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. If that was a planned armed insurrection, man, you had really a bunch of idiots.”
Well, it takes one to know one.
How did former Senator Russ Feingold lose twice to this putz?
It would probably be a safe proposition that the great majority, if not, all of the Capitol and DC Police, National Guardsman, Representatives, Senators, Staff, and Press that were on January 6, 2021, there have a different assessment of the Domestic Terrorist Attack than Mr. Johnson.
The Wisconsin Senator should ask all of them and the families of those that died that day whether they thought it was an armed insurrection.
Mr. Johnson has not said whether or not he will be running for reelection in 2022.
Hopefully, he will do the people of Wisconsin and the country a favor and do a smart thing for once: Decide to retire.
That would enhance the collective I.Q. and patriotism of the United States Senate if he does.
