U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) doesn’t have the time or patience to be lectured to by the Democrats on civility in politics. Instead of just sitting back and enduring the incessant and obnoxious punishment of hearing Democrat moral outrage, Boebert hit the other side with a rhetorical haymaker during a recent speech on the House floor.
At a Congressional hearing intended to hold Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) accountable for posting an animated video seeming to show political violence towards Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and others, Boebert took the floor and called out the hypocrisy of the complaining party, making the point that Democrats don’t have the right to act like paragons of civility.
Boebert went after Democrat politicians by name and called them out for their incomparable indecency.
The highly satisfying speech ripped into Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) for sleeping with a “Chinese spy,” and scorched Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for corrupt dealings that enriched her and her husband.
But before she got into the juicy details about those buffoonish politicians’ actions, Boebert began by saying that Democrats moving to censure Mr. Gosar were just looking for any reason to be offended and would rather do that than focus on passing meaningful legislation.
“Democrat policies are so pathetic and have done so poorly that the left has nothing else to do but troll the internet looking for ways to get offended and then try and target members and strip them of their committees,” Boebert claimed, while adding that this was “a dumb waste of the House’s time.”
But, because the representatives were all gathered for the punitive exercise, Rep. Boebert told them she might as well go into “other members’” “inappropriate actions.”
And, boy, she did not go easy on any of her targets.
Boebert began with Rep. Omar, calling her a member of the “Jihad Squad.” In her speech Boebert slammed Omar’s documented political corruption, and made the dig against her possibly very weird and very inappropriate marital situation. “The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid her husband – and not her brother husband, the other one – over a million dollars in campaign funds,” she stated. Ouch.
Boebert then went after Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) who has made several speeches calling for Democrats to get in the faces of Republicans or go out into the streets if they don’t get their way. “A Democrat chairwoman incited further violence in the streets outside of a courthouse,” she said.
And then Rep. Boebert came to the part of her statement she called the “cherry on top,” adding, “My colleague and three month presidential candidate from California, who is on the Intelligence Committee, slept with Fang Fang, a Chinese spy.”
Well, real world facts being what they are, Boebert was clearly referencing Rep. Swalwell's extremely gross and reckless behavior. She ended her statement saying, “A member of Congress, who receives classified briefings was sleeping with the enemy. This is unacceptable!”
Rep. Boebert, you go, girl!
