DEM Rep ARRESTED While Protesting


987 views

Rep. Hank Johnson was recently arrested.

Reports allege that he was arrested, along with 10 others, during a protest against the filibuster, and in support of ‘voting rights’.

Democrats all over the country continue to frame election integrity issues as ‘voters rights’ issues.

Rep. Johnson himself frames his protest and proceeding arrest as an act of civil disobedience:

In my opinion Rep. Johnson is sadly mistaken here.

It’s one thing to stand up for voters rights. It’s another thing entirely to fall for the trap of “voting rights”, which is just a deep state ploy to solidify establishment government power.

Rep. Johnson isn’t engaging in ‘civil disobedience’ if the very thing he is peddling is meant to grow an evil empire.

Here’s more on the story:

Fox News reports:

Johnson gave a speech at the voting rights rally in front of the Supreme Court, where he was joined by other members of the Congressional Black Caucus including Democratic Reps. Jamaal Bowman of New York, Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri, Troy Carter of Louisiana, Jackson Lee of Texas, and Al Green of Texas.

The group of protestors then marched over to the Senate office building to protest in front of the entrance while chanting, “This is what democracy looks like.”

Capitol Police told Fox News they arrested 10 individuals for “unlawfully demonstrating outside of the Hart Senate Office Building.”

Johnson’s office said the congressman was arrested with a “group of Black male voting rights activists protesting against Senate inaction on voting rights legislation and filibuster reform.

 

ABC News added:

The demonstration was a follow-up to the Black women-led protest on July 15, which ended in nine arrests, including the arrest of Congressional Black Caucus chair Rep. Joyce Beatty.

While the voting rights debate remains largely partisan in Congress, the majority of Americans believe that people who are legally qualified to vote should be able to, according to a survey from Pew Research Center.

Data released on Thursday revealed that 57% of Americans view voting more as “a fundamental right” for all eligible U.S. citizens and “should not be restricted in any way.” Less than 42% believe “voting is a privilege that comes with responsibilities and can be limited if adult U.S. citizens don’t meet some requirements,” according to the survey.
