Most sane people know just how batcrap stupid Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin can be…..and now he has his panties in a twist over Youtube…….
To stand out even in conspiracy-addled MAGA land as a dangerous nutcase is no small feat. But Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson has proven himself up to the challenge, second only to Donald Trump when it comes to spouting deranged bullshit about the 2020 election, the January 6 insurrection, and the coronavirus pandemic. And, like the former president, Johnson’s peddling of lies and conspiracies has earned him a social media ban—at least temporarily.
Over the weekend, YouTube announced that it has suspended Johnson’s account for one week after he posted a video to his account promoting COVID treatments that the Food and Drug Administration has deemed unsafe and ineffective. “We removed the video in accordance with our COVID-19 medical misinformation policies, which don’t allow content that encourages people to use Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin to treat or prevent the virus,” the social media company said Friday, after locking the Republican’s account.
Per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the video that got Johnson busted featured comments he made in a June 3 appearance before the Milwaukee Press Club, in which he said the federal government was “not only ignoring but working against robust research” favoring “cheap, generic drugs to be repurposed for early treatment of COVID.” Like Trump, Johnson has frequently promoted hydroxychloroquine as a COVID treatment, though the FDA revoked its emergency use authorization last summer and has said that studies have not shown it to be safe or effective at treating the virus.
Johnson is a perfect example of “Can’t Fix Stupid”.
