Johnson: Republicans Only Support Cops When They’re Beating Blacks, Support ‘White Ethno State’

‘They don’t like the police if the police stand for order in the face of white nationalism’

EXCERPT:

JOHNSON: "The problem — the sad thing honestly for me, Nicolle, is I know exactly where we are. It doesn’t shock me. It's not hypocritical. It’s actually very consistent for the Republican Party for the last ten years or so. Of course they support police officers when you’re beating up black folks. Of course they support the blue when it’s Black Lives Matter. But they don’t like the police if the police stand for order in the face of white nationalism. They don’t like the police if the police stand for order against an authoritarian government that they desire. And that’s what this boils down to. The Republicans simply want power. They want a white nationalist ethno state. That's what they want. They’re not subtle about it. Every voting legislation, every war they voted for, that is what they have been about ever since Donald Trump got the nomination. And they don’t care who they have to sacrifice, whether that’s people in central Texas having to die over Covid, or police officers in the Capitol, they don’t care who dies. They don’t care if it’s kids in Sandy Hook as long as it is about accruing power to a white nationalist ethno state.”
