Poor Michigan State Rep. Cynthia Johnson.
You say a few things, you put out a call for your soldiers to go after Trump supporters, and then you end up getting your seats on committees stripped away from you by the Michigan GOP.
Life just isn’t fair.. Especially when you are a democrat and a black woman. You should be able to do and say anything you want in this day and age.

Johnson took to Facebook recently and put out a call to arms, targeting Trump supporters. She wasn’t too happy about getting what she calls “harassed” by Trump supporters after how she handled the voter fraud hearings that included Rudy Giuliani and she decided to strike back.
Johnson said, “This is just a warning to you Trumpers. Be careful, walk lightly, we ain’t playing with you. Enough of the shenanigans. Enough is enough.”
She went on to say, “For those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it right, be in order, make them pay.”
Later, she described her rant as “talking about peace and unity.”
Her real motive was probably exposed when she said, “Thank you for making me nationally known.”
That’s where it’s at for the democrats– marketing, recognition, power and money.
Peace-loving democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer thought that removing Johnson from the committees went too far as a consequence of her deeds.
This is a woman (Whitmer) who has complained at length about the kidnapping plot against her and the death threats she gets and the fact that the people who are in the Capitol shouldn’t be walking around with guns.
But let a democrat incite violence and that is perfectly fine.
Whitmer said of her buddy, Cynthia, “I think this is a woman who has been through a lot. And I think it’s important that every single one of us give one another a little bit of compassion and grace.”
Yeah, right, Gretch. Compassion and grace for someone who said “make them pay” in an appeal to go after her political enemies.
Don’t think so.
