GOP Senator Ron Johnson Denied Entry Into Russia – Democrats Are Silent

Republican Senator Ron Johnson on Monday revealed that Russia has denied a visa request to visit the country as part of a bipartisan congressional delegation.

Johnson (R-WI), had requested the visa as a means to speak with various Russian government officials, American businesses and civil society organizations as part of the visit.

“Unfortunately, Russian officials continue to play diplomatic games with this sincere effort and have denied me entrance to Russia,” said Johnson in a statement.

“Regardless of this petty affront, I will continue to advocate a strong and resolute response to Russian aggression — and frank dialogue when possible,” he added.

It is unclear if the other congressional delegates had also been denied visas into Russia.

What is clear, however, is that the Democrat party, their leaders, and the ‘Squad’ seem to have selective outrage when it comes to American lawmakers being denied entry into a foreign country.

It wasn’t all that long ago – in fact, mere weeks – that Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) were denied entry into Israel over their support for the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, and the left was calling it the end of democracy as we know it.

In fact, the Democrats were so outraged over Tlaib and Omar, a pair of anti-Semitic, terror organization-sympathizing lawmakers, being barred from Israel for being asked not to act like a pair of anti-Semitic, terror organization-sympathizing lawmakers, that they were seeking avenues to punish our ally.

Fellow ‘Squad’ member and de facto leader of the ignorant group, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, went so far as to declare Israel to be racist, just like President Trump.

You would think the outrage would be even more amplified when Russia does the same thing to an American lawmaker. Especially when it involves a country the Democrats have portrayed as a direct threat to every American institution for three years now.

Johnson, to the contrary, didn’t have any problem ripping Russia for the decision and even took aim at Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“The path Vladimir Putin has chosen for Russia is a tragedy of historic proportions,” Johnson said. “Instead of holding free and fair elections, respecting the rule of law, and integrating Russia’s economy with Western democracies, Putin has invaded Georgia, attempted to illegally annex Crimea, conducted war in eastern Ukraine where thousands have died, and supported a barbaric regime in Syria that has used chemical weapons on its own people in a war that has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands.”

Perhaps if Senator Johnson wants access to Russia, he should get a little more cozy with them. You know, like Bill and Hillary Clinton have been over the years, with the latter opposing sanctions against the country after the former was paid $500,000 for a speech.

Remember: a lot of Repubs are Deep State as well as the majority of the DenRATS. The Repubs are just waiting in the shadows to see how it all shakes out, trying to stay out of the line of fire.
