Now that Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) has been elected as the Speaker of the House, you know that Democrats are desperately trying to dig up any kind of dirt that they can find on him. Democrats target anyone who might stand in the way of their power, so you know it’s a good sign that they’re having such a meltdown over Johnson.
But you know how hard up they must be with The Atlantic’s effort to attack Johnson. It’s pretty comical, truthfully. If this is all they can come up with, Democrats are going to spend a lot of time gnashing their teeth.
What have they come up with? Something truly juicy?
Hold onto your hat; you may not believe how bad it is.
According to The Atlantic, Mike Johnson’s great-great-great grandfather was a Confederate soldier.
Oh my, how will Mike Johnson survive the horrible scandal? Talk about a spectacularly ridiculous failure; one might think this was the Babylon Bee or some other humor outlet.
When they have to go that far to find “dirt” on Mike Johnson, you know how desperate they truly are and you know how little there is.
They try to bootstrap that into something this way:
Like his great-great-great-grandfather Alfred, Mike Johnson was part of an attempt to oust the duly elected government of the United States and replace it with one more to his liking. In Alfred’s day, the tools were secession and battle; Johnson’s were spurious claims of voter fraud and trumped-up legal arguments. [….]
About three-quarters of the House Republicans who objected to the Electoral College count on January 6 cited legal arguments Johnson had made, leading The New York Times to call him “the most important architect of the Electoral College objections.” He gave what one fellow Republican member called “a fig-leaf intellectual argument” for overturning the election.
Johnson raised questions about the election and the electoral count?
You mean the same thing that Democrats have done for every presidential election they lost in the past two decades? So Democrats are allowed to raise questions, challenge elections, even attempt to suborn electors, and commit all kinds of “election denialism,” and that’s all okay? Yet, Republicans are chastised by The Atlantic for exercising their rights expressly provided for under the Constitution. According to them, Republicans aren’t allowed to pursue legal challenges.
When the media tried to bring this up after Johnson was elected, Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) just shut them down with a disgusted “Shut up.”
If Democrats and liberal media didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all. If the media hadn’t already done enough to make you mistrust them, this would certainly add to your opinion of what pond scum they are.
