On Sunday Morning Futures yesterday, Sen. Ron Johnson talked to Maria Bartiromo in a long 10-min segment about the Capitol riots, the measures taken since, the investigation, and so on. At one point, he said the real reason the massive and imposing barricades are threaded all through our nation’s capitol is to send a signal to Trump voters: You are bad and a threat.
First, he made a great dig about walls. “Obviously, leaders in Congress think walls and barriers work because they’ve surrounded the Capitol with them,” he said. That’s great.
Then he went on.
“A month has gone by, and we still don’t know [what happened]. And yet, we have these eight-foot-tall fences with concertina wire completely surrounding the Capitol. We’ve been told they are going oh to be put in place sill March at least. Listen, the Capitol is the people’s house. It shouldn’t be barricaded unless there [are] some real threats that I’m not aware of that they are not telling us about. I think we ought to take that fencing down and return to as normal position as possible. I think the fencing is remaining in place to send a signal — a narrative that 74 million voters who voted for President Trump are dangerous to our democracy, they’re all insurrectionists, and that’s simply not the case.”
