Mich. Democrat urges violence against ‘Trumpers’
UPDATED 3:45 PM PT – Wednesday, December 9, 2020
A Michigan Democrat official made threats against supporters of President Trump and appeared to call for the political persecution of her opponents.
This is disgraceful. Imagine the outrage if a Republican did something even remotely close to this? https://t.co/7g3NIjXxpq

“So this is just a warning for you Trumpers,” Rep. Johnson (D-Mich.) said. “Be careful, walk lightly. Enough of the shenanigans.”
Michigan State Congresswoman Cynthia Johnson seemd to call on radical left militants to be prepared to attack Republican voters.
“For those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it,” she added. “Do it right. Be in order. Make them pay.”
Commentators said Johnson’s remarks may amount to violent extremism.
Johnson also called witnesses of Michigan voter fraud “liars.”
Her address was originally posted on Facebook, which raised questions wondering if the company would ban Johnson over these apparent calls to violence.
