Ron Johnson, a member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, railed against the “unequal application of justice” he sees between the suspects involved in the January 6 riot in the US Capitol and those involved in the anti-Antifa protests and Black Lives Matter were involved in cities like Philadelphia, Portland, New York City, and Washington last year, which turned into criminal activity.
In “Life, Liberty & Levin,” moderator Mark Levin pointed out a letter from Johnson along with Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., And three other Republicans officially asking Attorney General Merrick Garland about the discrepancies in “potentially unequal” interviewed justice ” according to the law applicable to both camps.
The Johnson and Tuberville letter stated, in part, that of the hundreds of suspects cataloged in an online DOJ database listing Capitol riot arrests, those suspected during the Black Lives Matter demonstrations Have been involved in repeated acts of suspected criminal behavior across the country, no such focus was given following the death of George Floyd in May 2020.
In relation to how some Capitol insurgent suspects have been held in harsh detention conditions, the letter also attempted to get Garland to publish the conditions under which Antifa suspects are or have been held.
Johnson told Levin that he, Tuberville, Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Rick Scott of Florida, and Ted Cruz of Texas were the only signatories to the letter, probably because the media tends to tell anyone who has concerns or tales to the contrary, ” to kill and attack ”. to that published by the Democrats about such events.
“The fact that I am just questioning the story that there have been thousands of armed uprisings aimed at overthrowing the government; You saw how this worked for me, ”he remarked.
“So our colleagues say, take a look at this and decide they don’t want to tackle this issue with a ten-foot pole. But this is most alarming. Every American should be concerned when we see the unequal administration of justice.”
Johnson praised Fox News host Tucker Carlson for recording the urban violence that hit New York, Philadelphia and elsewhere in the summer and fall of 2020, and noted that the press was right about attacks on the police by right-wing Capitol insurgent suspects, but had little to say about the attacks by left-wing rioters and antifa members on the NYPD and other officers in recent months.
“Tucker showed these videos of people being beaten to a pulp during the summer riots and it’s not even reported,” he said, listing 500 separate leftist riots compared to the unique incursion on the Capitol.
“They want to sweep it all under the rug and concentrate on what, by the way, we all condemned what happened in the Capitol. I wasn’t happy with that. [Capitol] Repulsive violence and the racist insults repulsive. I condemn these actions. I want these people to be fully prosecuted, ”Johnson affirmed.
“But I don’t want the media, and I don’t want Democrats and politicians to paint broadly just because, you know, out of a hundred or a few hundred people who attacked law enforcement, somehow 75 million Americans voted for Donald Trump are sort of suspected domestic terrorists. “
Johnson also expressed concern over the death of Ashli Babbitt, a veteran and protester who illegally broke into the Capitol on Jan. 6 among the rest of the suspects.
“She didn’t carry a gun. She didn’t threaten anyone. She was in the Capitol and was killed, ”noted Levin, adding that the police officer who shot and killed her has not been identified and has allegedly been acquitted of wrongdoing.
“Well, we certainly didn’t hear that when the tables were turned,” replied Johnson. “Here too there is concern about the unequal application of justice and the great concern.”

Wisconsin lawmakers, which did not say whether or not to be re-elected in 2022, further noted that much of the activism and property damage was “celebrated” by Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
“Black Lives Matter is a violent Marxist, anti-American organization and has done very little to penetrate black communities and help build black communities; helps black communities choose schools, [and] help black communities at all, “he said.
“It wants to overthrow the country,” added BLM’s Johnson.
Johnson convicted the city officials for painting their streets “Black Lives Matter” – what happened in Orlando, New York City, Washington and elsewhere across the country.
In Orlando, the BLM mural on downtown Rosalind Avenue was defaced at least twice by drivers who appeared to be burnout to tread the words, while in New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio helped get the slogan on the 700 block painting on Fifth Avenue – outside the corporate headquarters of its frequent critic, former President Donald Trump.
Trump later condemned de Blasio, saying the street painting was an affront to the NYPD and denigrated “this luxury street,” which also includes the Plaza Hotel, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and several high-end shopping attractions.
“When mayors paint the name of Black Lives Matter on the street, when you die [President Joe Biden] say that the greatest threat we face as a nation is white supremacy, and then see how they deal with up to 400 people in the Justice Department [arrested after the Capitol riot] as if they were all Klansmen or all neo-Nazis. “
Johnson predicted that the “vast majority” of Capitol insurgency suspects are not members of the KKK or similar groups, noting that an earlier, related narrative of Trump forcibly evacuating Lafayette Park behind the White House was to make the St Visiting John’s Church while clutching a Bible has been misreported by the media, according to a new document from the Home Office, Inspector General Mark Lee Greenblatt.
