In Facebook Rants, MI Dem Rep. Cynthia Johnson Calls on ‘Soldiers’ to ‘Rise Up’ and Make ‘Trumpers’ Pay

A Michigan Democrat State Representative seemed to threaten President Trump’s supporters on video Tuesday, by saying “we ain’t playing with you,” and calling on “soldiers” to “make them pay.”

In a three minute long Facebook live video, the far-left State Rep. Cynthia Johnson said “Trumpers” had better “be careful,” and “walk lightly.”

In a subsequent rant, Johnson suggested that was calling on “soldiers of Christ,” and soldiers for black and brown people” to “rise up” and make Trumpers pay.

Johnson, who made a name for herself by trying to intimidate election fraud whistleblowers during the hearings in Michigan earlier this month, took office on January 1, 2019.

Addressing her Facebook friends on Dec. 8, she said: “I wish I could be talking to y’all in a private room, because, uh, I just wish I could, but we’re public so …”

She told them, “you don’t have curse anybody out, you don’t have to call people names … hit their asses in the pocketbook.”

“So 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. And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it right, be in order, make them pay,” Johnson said, before adding, “I love you all,” to her followers.

In a Facebook live video on Wednesday, Johnson seemed to suggest that she had in mind “soldiers of Christ,” “soldiers for black and brown people,” and soldiers of a host of woke causes in her earlier message.

“I want to share something with all you soldiers … soldiers of CHRIST!” Johnson bellowed in her video. “Soldiers against racism! Soldiers against misogyny! Soldiers against domestic violence and domestic terrorism!” she exclaimed. “Soldiers RISE! … “It’s time for you to rise. SOLDIERS! Soldiers for Christ … uhm!”

Johnson concluded her Facebook rant by saying: “Soldiers for black and brown people who are being mistreated. Rise, soldiers!”


Lee Chatfield, Speaker of the MI House of Representatives and Speaker-Elect Jason Wentworth said in a statement Wednesday that Johnson’s threats were “unacceptable” and that she has been removed from her committee assignments.   “We’re looking into further disciplinary action as the proper authorities conduct their investigation,” the legislators said in their statement.
