Ron Johnson, (partial) American hero

Johnson could easily have been one of the Republicans who publicly rebuked Trump and cried over the “armed insurrection.” Many Stupid Party senators did, but Johnson has been poking holes in the Biden Regime-Deep State narrative:
  • First, he asks whether outside agitators triggered the violence, and he defends the tens of thousands of Trump supporters who peacefully gathered in Washington D.C. that day.
  • Second, he disputes the ludicrous idea that the events at the U.S. Capitol were an “armed insurrection” that threatened to topple the government.
  • Third, he accurately observes that Antifa and Black Lives Matter pose a far greater danger than the Capitol protesters.
All this, of course, infuriates the Regime Media [Ron Johnson at the center of the storm, by Manu Raju and Alex Rogers, CNN, March 4, 2021]. They’re particularly incensed that he forced an FBI official to admit that that agents did not arrest anyone on a gun charge [FBI Official Says No Guns Were Recovered During Capitol Riot Arrests, by Chuck Ross, Daily Caller, March 3, 2021]. He’s wondered aloud if the “insurrection” witch-hunt wasn’t a diversion from Democrat security failures at the Capitol [Sen. Ron Johnson: 'This didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me', Riley Vetterkind, Wisconsin State Journal, February 16, 2021].
