Senator Johnson has a twisted rich man's take on reality. Forty of his constituents came to his Milwaukee office today, in order to ask him why he voted "no" on the Amercian Jobs Act. Our state lost an estimated 20,000 jobs on that one. I just wrote about it here.
19 people were arrested and hauled away. Here is what our esteemed Senator had to say about it in a press release:
"The Constitution guarantees the right of citizens to petition their elected officials for redress of grievances, and I respect anyone who chooses to do so. With that in mind, I instructed my State Director to offer to meet with any and all of the protesters who came today to my Milwaukee and Oshkosh offices. Unfortunately, those who came to my Milwaukee office were more interested in scoring political points than discussing issues. They chose not to meet with my staff, but instead to be disorderly, which unfortunately resulted in their arrest by law enforcement."
Johnson is one callous lying SOB. These people knew that Johnson wasn't at his Milwaukee Headquarters. They are not stupid. They went in to speak with his staff. They were greeted by security and immediately told to leave. Cops instantaneously arrived and zip tied them and dragged them off on charges of trespassing. These protesters are not politicians trying to make "political points." They are his constituents trying desperately to be heard!
Here is that malcontent getting released from the slammer. She had it coming to her for having the gall to walk into her Senator's regional office. An afternoon on ice should teach her to act as if she lives in a representative democracy!
As Kossack Danosh stated in a comment in my previous post:
I'm an Oshkosh native also and I still live here. The way this creep got elected was by not giving out his point of view. Lots of money given to him by his father-in-law. After being elected on company money he gave himself a 10 million dollar bonus. Stupid, uninformed voters thought that they were voting for a nice guy. Johnson refused to debate or be interviewed. He told nobody where he stood on the issues.
We elected this gas balloon in place of Russ Feingold. We now have to deal with him. But don't forget: he respects your rights to be arrested for having the temerity to try to make eye contact. After all, he is the 1 percent!
