Ron Johnson's Feet

Recommended Posts

Was Ron Johnson born with a foot in his mouth? It seems Ron, a white man who supports former President Trump, isn't afraid of white extremist. Go figure? Are there examples of other remarks, either liberal or conservative politicians are making you can offer that seem completely thoughtless? Paraphrasing Ron Johnson, Ron offered he knew the rioters at the Capitol were not dangerous however, if the rioters were black then the rioters would be dangerous.

I need to correct my above post which should be  deleted for lack of interest and misinformation. Senator Johnson, senior Senator from Wisconsin did not use any reference to race or color of the insurrectionist. He does believe the rioters at the Capitol are law abiding citizens and he was in no danger, in his opinion. He did also indicate he would have been frightened if the rioters were from that other group(BLM).

People should disregard most of the nonsense Senator Ron Johnson keeps spewing. He's clearly prioritized riling up a low information voting base instead of bothering with any truth or integrity or desire to help those he represents.

Being safe, and 'feeling' safe are two totally different things.
One iis a reality, the other is a perception based on our biases, mis/conceptions, and life experiences.

So yes, he may well 'feel' safer, and be totally justified saying so.
You are angry that HIS perception is not the same as YOURS ?

MigL,  I feel no anger toward Ron Johnson but I do feel Ron Johnson's remarks about the events of Jan.6,2021 at the Capitol were politically motivated. His remarks were intended to create the impression that those who did feel threatened by the rioters were exaggerating the threat that actually existed. Ron Johnson did feel safe; he was not targeted by the rioters. Ron Johnson had, and still has, no concern for the safety of his political opponents or those required to protect them. The Republican VP was even in danger. It may sound cliche but those Capitol police and the 'Metro' officers were real heroes on Jan.6.....and lucky to have won the day...

I’m not here to defend Ron Johnson. I find his general approach here repugnant and detrimental, but none of these things you’ve said in the above quote are possible for you to know. You should stop making assertions regarding things impossible for you to know.

Looks like the quote function of the forum software seems to have given you some trouble in that post. It happens to us all sometimes, but if you need/expect me to respond, then I'll need you to please try posting your response again.

iNOW, my statement about Sen.Johnson has a reasonable degree of probability; no different than your statement about Sen. Johnson," He's clearly prioritized riling up a low information voting base instead of....."

You've made more than one statement. Which one do you mean? 

Do you mean the ones where you claimed to have some insight or knowledge of his thoughts, motivations, and reasons for behaving a certain way? Those statements?

iNOW, there is one statement starting with "Migl, I feel no anger...". The first sentence of that paragraph established the context of the following sentences. It is opinionated and I suggest it is an accurate assessment of Senator Ron Johnson's remarks made in the aftermath of the insurrection on Jan.6,2021 at our Capitol. As if you did not know, politicians "play politics", catering to their base and applying spin when making statements. Ron Johnson minimized the dangers that existed during an invasion of the Capitol with statements like,(paraphrasing) I was not afraid, and They were law abiding people. In my opinion these statements were meant to belittle the seriousness of a mob's actions that are responsible for  death, injuries and damage to the Capitol.

Agreed

Again, agreed… but just so we’re clear, that’s not what you said a few weeks ago. That’s where my criticism was focused, but we can move on since you’ve refined your claim. Thanks. 
 

Ron Johnson's remarks ... were intended to create the impression that those who did feel threatened by the rioters were exaggerating... Ron Johnson had, and still has, no concern for the safety of his political opponents or those required to protect them.
