While Americans and Wisconsinites are marking the anniversary of the Insurrection of January 6, Senator Ron Johnson is… defending and egging on the insurrectionists.

Without further ado, here are Ron Johnson’s most outrageous remarks about the Insurrection… 

  • “Many of the marchers were families with small children, many were elderly, overweight or just plain tired or frail. Traits not typically attributed to the riot-prone.” — 2/23/21, CNN

  • “Do not allow judges, don’t allow unelected election officials to usurp your role in this constitutional process. We are putting state legislators on notice.” — 1/4/21: Newsmax, Grant Stinchfield

  • “I never felt threatened. I didn’t foresee this.” — 2/15/21, WISN-AM, The Jay Weber Show

  • “I don’t know any Trump supporters who would do that.” — 2/15/21, WISN-AM, The Jay Weber Show

  • “But, the fact of the matter is, this didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me.” — 2/15/21, WISN-AM, The Jay Weber Show

  • “Those who have lost confidence [in our elections] are not crazy. They are patriots.” — 1/7/21, Press Release, Senator Ron Johnson.

  • “That’s exactly how [Democrats] used COVID in the 2020 election. We doubled absentee balloting and absentee balloting, we were told by the Baker Carter Commission, that it represented the greatest threat for voter fraud. … Which is why a lot of people don’t have a great deal of confidence in the result of that election.” — 12/6/21, Twitter 

  • “This is the warning to state legislatures: if you don’t want your citizens, their votes, disenfranchised, not counted, step up to the plate. Assume your responsibility, take control over your own elections.” — 1/5/21, Fox News
