Ron Johnson: If Insurrectionists Had Been Black Lives Matter As an alternative of MAGA I Would Have Been ‘Involved’

Contested US Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), a top Trump supporter, admitted he felt safe during the Jan. 6 riot because he trusted the MAGA crowd, thousands of whom were against not only the law but also that Violated government property and caused physical harm.

But he also admits that if these rioters had been protesters for the Black Lives Matter, he would not have felt safe – he would have felt “concerned”.

His statements cause anger and accusations of racism.

“I made the comment that on January 6th I never felt threatened,” Johnson said on Joe Pags’ conservative radio talk show. “Because I didn’t,” he insisted, which meant he didn’t feel threatened.

“And most of all, because I knew that even though these thousands of people were marching up the Capitol there trying to pressure people like me to vote the way they wanted me to vote, I knew these were people who love this country and who really respect it law enforcement agencies would never do anything to break a law. And so I wasn’t worried. “

Virtually everyone who stormed the Capitol was breaking the law. One policeman was killed and over 100 others were seriously injured, including one with a hollowed-out eye. And today the Justice Department announced that it plans to indict another 100 of the insurgents.

“If the tables had been turned now – Joe, that could get me in trouble – the tables would have been turned and President Trump would have won the election, and there were tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters. I might have been a little worried. “


Blatant racism from @RonJohnsonWI here. He said he was not concerned on Jan. 6 because the white-majority insurgents who stormed the Capitol “love this country” but if they were Black Lives Matter protesters he would have been concerned for his safety. #WISen
