‘Russian Asset’ Ron Johnson Hit From Every Direction Over Latest Comments On Jan 6 Attack
Sen. Ron Johnson sparked the ire of the internet after suggesting this week that the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was not an insurrection but a largely “peaceful protest.”
“Even calling it an insurrection, it wasn’t,” the Wisconsin Republican said during an appearance on Fox News’s “Ingraham Angle.” “You know, I condemned the breach. I condemned the violence, but to say there were thousands of armed insurrectionists breaching the Capitol intent on overthrowing the government is just simply false narrative.”
Johnson went on to say that he has spoken to some of his constituents in Wisconsin that were present at a “Stop the Steal” rally on the National Mall and at the U.S. Capitol that day.
“By and large, it was peaceful protest, except for there were a number of people, basically agitators that whipped the crowd and breached the Capitol. That’s really the truth of what’s happening here,” Johnson said.
His comments we met with a fierce backlash:
Ron Johnson once again calls the Jan 6 insurrection (which he says wasn't an insurrection!) a "peaceful protest." I mean, what planet is he on! He's a disgrace to Wisconsin, and he's a threat to our democracy. pic.twitter.com/JVqZHLRXXn

Russian asset Ron Johnson says the deadly insurrection he incited was a peaceful protest and nothing more.
This detestable traitor is one of 8 GQPers who flew to Moscow in 2018 during July 4h weekend to try meeting w/ Putin, so of course he’d support an attack on the US Capitol.

Ron Johnson calls this “a peaceful protest.” If that’s the case, why not welcome a full investigation into the circumstances of their Capitol visit? #Jan6thCommissionNow pic.twitter.com/jzr4fRkQu1

Just read that Ron Johnson, that piece of dirt, just called the insurrection a ‘peaceful protest’.
At this point, it just seems like these fuckers are trying to outdo each other.
