WASHINGTON – Senator Ron Johnso., R-Wis., said he was unafraid when the Capitol was invaded January 6 because he knew the protesters were law-abiding people who loved their country. Had they been Black Lives Matter protesters, he would have had something to worry about, he said. Johnson is a blue-eye, white-skinned 66-year-old male of German and Norwegian extraction. His observations on the Capitol siege aired on the nationally syndicated Joe Pags radio talk show. Johnson preceded his views on the siege by telling Pags he knew his remarks could get him “in trouble.” Indeed, Johnson’s comments drew immediate reaction from jaw-dropped news reporters who noted:

> 140 police officers were injured in the attack.

> Five deaths resulted, not no mention serious injuries.

> So far the FBI has arrested 315 rioters, many affiliated with violent anarchist and government-hating organizations.

> Many invaders were armed and stated their purpose was assassination.

Johnson has been a tireless supporter of President Trump and has minimized Trump’s role in inciting the January 6 invasion of the Capitol.

Johnson: “I knew those were people that love this country, that truly respect law enforcement, would never do anything to break the law, so I wasn’t concerned. Had the tables been turned, and President Trump won the election, and those were tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter and antifa protesters, I might have been a little concerned.”
