Activists Made a Life-Size Sen Ron Johnson Statue Out of Poop to Protest His Views on Climate Change

Activists associated with NextGen PAC and MoveOn have created a six-foot-tall, 80-pound statue in the likeness of Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). As a direct response to Johnson’s recent comments calling climate change “bullshit,” the statue is made out of poop.

“The people in Wisconsin deserve a senator who believes in climate change and won’t take money from the fossil fuel industry to get richer himself,” Tweets NextGen PAC. “That’s why we joined @MoveOn in Milwaukee today to call out Ron Johnson’s bullshit… literally.”

In 2021 Johnson said: “I don’t know about you guys, but I think climate change is – as Lord Monckton said – bullshit, by the way, it is.”

The comment was made at the Republican Women of Greater Wisconsin Luncheon at Alioto’s in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, according to CNN. In a statement made after the remarks were brought to the public’s attention, Johnson said “My statements are consistent. I am not a climate change denier, but I also am not a climate change alarmist. Climate is not static. It has always changed and always will change.”
