Far right, conspiracy addled senator blames Texas school shooting on "wokeness".
We stopped teaching values in so many of our schools. Now we’re teaching wokeness. We’re indoctrinating our children with things like CRT, telling some children they’re not equal to others and they’re the cause of other people’s problems…”

Ron Johnson, US Senator from Wisconsin, has barely ever met a right wing conspiracy he didnt like. 

He has spent much of the past few years promoting nonsense, both in the US Congress and in various national media. He is a proponent of Trump's "Big Lie".  Johnson is probably one of the most factually inaccurate members of Congress.

Yet despite his massive shortcomings as a politician and a leader, he summons the gall to blame the Texas school massacre on Critical Race Theory and "wokeness". 


S enator Ron Johnson blamed the Uvalde shooting on schools teaching CRT and “wokeness” during an appearance on Fox Business Thursday. Anchor Neil Cavuto, however, pushed back on that remarkably absurd suggestion.

At the end of an interview in which gun safety came up, Cavuto noted that there was no paper trail and no record on the school shooter, before asking Johnson if he thought that moving forward “We would require maybe stiffer background checks?”

“You know, no matter what you do, people fall through the cracks,” Johnson replied. “You can’t identify all these problems. You can’t arrest somebody for a crime they haven’t committed yet. These are difficult issues.”

Johnson is correct that these are difficult issues, but just because a speed limit doesn’t mean everyone won’t speed doesn’t render the speed limit useless. But I digress.

“The solution lies in stronger families, more supportive communities,” the Wisconsin Republican continued. “I would argue renewed faith. We’ve lost that. We stopped teaching values in so many of our schools. Now we’re teaching wokeness. We’re indoctrinating our children with things like CRT, telling some children they’re not equal to others and they’re the cause of other people’s problems…”

“But school shootings have been happening long before CRT,” Cavuto interrupted.

“Well, I think CRT’s been going on under the radar for quite some time as well, wokeness has been, liberal indoctrination has been,” Johnson replied. “This is a much larger issue than what a simple new gun law’s going to — it’s not going to solve it.”

Johnson has been ridiculed for dim-witted comments like this to the degree that some morning show personalities have compared him to the moronic Anchor Man character Brock Tamlund, portrayed by Steve Carrell . This exchange perfectly exemplifies why.

I dont think Wisconsin is as backwards a place as its representation in the Senate by this weirdo would suggest. But they need to vote Ron Johnson out of office asap.

Is there any evidence the shooter was "woke" or influenced by CRT?

The Republicans these days are reliably unhinged.

Wokeness, mental problems.  Same thing.  At least it's identifying a mental problem that can be worked and not an inanimate object.

You believe in conspiracy theories about as much as the wacko Ron Johnson does. People are tired of this garbage.

You mean conspiracy theories like:

One would have to be a complete fucking idiot to think an inanimate object is the "cause" of shootings.  Do you have ANY idea how a firearm operates?  I'll give you a hint.  They don't walk around our streets alone.  They don't "accidently" go off.  They don't tell people who to shot at.  

Now, quit running from the actual problem (mental illsness and the publics ignorance) and for once push something productive to resolve this.  Those pathetic "gun free signs" and bans on weapons you can't even fucking define are a failure.

I looked at the first one. That is enough

Another witness, Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Meadows who was present in his office when he recounted Trump’s remarks, was asked by the committee about the account and confirmed it, according to the people familiar with the panel’s work. It was not immediately clear how much detailed information Hutchinson provided. She has cooperated with the committee in three separate interviews after receiving a subpoena

That is not the product of a conspiracy theory, it is a leak from a congressional committee that is taking sworn testimony from witnesses. 

It is a waste of time to talk to you.

Your idea that unless one knows the nomenclature of guns to a precise degree one cannot understand what they do is truly bizzare.  A lot of people dont know the precise terminology of an airplane control panel either, but they know what an airplane does.

Every one of those links are fiction and posted by YOU.  And you think I'm running on conspiracy theories?

Don't deflect on your own seed.  Makes you look pathetic.  

You don't give a flying fuck about securing school , protecting children or really addressing the problem that led to this tragedy.  You'd rather take the easy way out.  That much is obvious.

[Deleted] a report of congressional testimony by a named witness is not a conspiracy theory.

My premise is that you can't ban something if you don't know what the fuck it is.  The term "Assault Weapon" is the talking point of the ignorant that is used to diminish the rights of law abiding citizens.

Ron Johnson has his own brand of 'wokeness' and it is spreading.

The Dems are soft on crime, don't  believe in punishing criminals, and deify thugs like George Floyd as Obama did recently.
