"How does Kevin McCarthy live with himself? How does the mistitled leader of the House Republicans look at himself in the mirror, knowing as he must that the real powers in his party are the gun-toting bigots, Trumpian conspiracists and insurrection sympathizers he’s enabled, like Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia? And knowing that he’s empowered them by his refusal to act against their repeated outrages?" - Jackie Calmes, LA Times, 'Congress Has Become A Cesspool Of Threats and Extremism'
"I can see being afraid to criticize Trump, but Boebert? Are they worried she’s packing? I mean, is it a case of Glockophobia or just spine-free fear of any part of the base that Trump and Boebert share?" -- Mike Littwin, Boebert's Hate Show, The Colorado Springs Independent
The unhinged Bimbo- Rep. Lauren Boebert -in a insinuated in a half-assed jokey manner that Democratic U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Muslim, might be a terrorist. with Omar, a second video, , spread around social media with Boebert making almost the same remarks but at a different event. She also called Omar as well as Democratic U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (who is also Muslim) “black-hearted” and “evil.”
This half -educated (high school dropout) imbecile is the twit elected by Colorado's the 3rd congressional district to represent them, and is one of the multiple reasons this country is now going to hell in a handbasket. That is given Boebert is just one of the insane MAGA Troll caucus of degenerates which include: child sex trafficker Matt Gaetz, holocaust mocker and QAnon freak, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar who recently rendered a cartoon video showing AOC getting mutilated and murdered - by him. This is what one former political party has become: a refuge for traitors, despicables and liars. All paying obeisance to the grand liar of them all, Trump.
What is most incredible to me is how this so-called "Western Slope firebrand" has maintained a strong lead over the Democrats seeking to unseat her. This according to recently released campaign finance data . Now, it is true that the 3rd Congressional District . But still, given her outrageous behavior going back even earlier - from the time she entered congress, e.g.
it is frankly mind bogging that this disgusting, brazen Bimbo boasts a seven-figure war chest - now estimated at $ 1.7 million- while the next best fundraiser has only a fraction of that cash on hand, campaign finance records show. Indeed, the leading contender for the Democratic nomination, state Sen. Kerry Donovan, after congressional redistricting placed her outside of the district.
The top two Democratic fundraisers competing for Boebert’s seat are Debora Burnett, of Jackson County, and Soledad “Sol” Sandoval, of Pueblo, according to filed with the Federal Election Commission. As of the end of September, Burnett had $55,712 on hand and Sandoval had $48,965.
Even worse than the campaign funding anomaly, it appears Boebert is unlikely to face any repercussions for her mock apology as well as her most recent comments - doubling down on her attacks on Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. This means the only real sanction left is to kick her sorry ass out of congress entirely. If her constituents are too dense and brain- jacked to see she's unfit to lead, then Pelosi and the rest of the congress (not including the Trump cult) must do the right thing and send her packing. The Dem House leadership taking no action is not an option and only serves to embolden the little halfwit harpy to engage in more attacks.
According to Seth Masket, a Univ. of Denver political science professor:
"Every day she says a bombastic thing and gets a headline for it. There are some donors that see that as a positive thing. They like that she’s offending Democrats.”
This, of course, perfectly fits the thesis of writer Amanda Marcotte in her book, Troll Nation, i.e. that the GOP has descended into a cult of dedicated trolls whose sole objective is to feed their base hate and the continual harassment and obstruction of progressives. To "make the libs cry" is the overriding theme and battle cry. Ironic, as they are now wailing nonstop from all the body bags piled up from red state Covid illness - as a result of refusing the vaccines.
Prof. Masket said he’s watching the national Democratic party and organizations like the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to see if they’ll move more aggressively to back an existing challenger or find a new one. Well, they may well have decided it's little use given Boebert's constituents are as vile as she is, and only want a vile, hate-filled troll to represent them.
Further, given Boebert exels at off -the- rails trolldom - like a drunken monkey on PCP- it is highly unlikely that any normal Republican primary challenger will be found. Even if one did appear, it is a given the orange maggot Trump would come out against him or her to keep Boebert's seat safe and packing her Glocks to D.C.
The closest normal GOP challenger would be former U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, . According to Bob Jenkins, former GOP administrative chair for the 3rd Congressional District, Tipton was "humble, quiet and effective". But ultimately "voters forgot about him" because he lacked the go for the jugular hate that Boebert had.
Jenkins added in a Denver Post interview that none of Boebert’s recent remarks or attacks on Omar would hurt her with voters in her district or donors across the country. They are all trolls and Trump lubbers at heart and are enamored of her "style". In other words they're as vile, hateful and sickening as she is. Welcome to the GOP -Trump Troll cult. As I wrote in earlier posts, putting any of these wretches into power or control of congress is planting a time bomb to blow up our democracy. That's not hyperbolic, or histrionic, it's a bloody fact - and we will repent at leisure if we are dumb enough to do it.
Dem candidate dropout Kerry Donovan nailed Boebert to a tee when she told the Post:
“She wears her hatred and her racism on her sleeve. And it’s very sad that an individual like that is now the voice of the Western Slope in Colorado.”
On that note, let us recall the words from a Denver Post letter writer (in January) after the little imp was elected:
"What is really concerning is the quality of people in the district who voted for this uneducated, crazy person to go to congress. This is the best they've got? That is pretty sad."
That is it in a nutshell, the quality of the people, the voters. If the majority of U.S. voters (like those in Boebert's district) lack quality, intelligence or insight in the midterms next year then we will surely be on a path to oblivion.
Progressive Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman, of New York, did push Republican House leaders on Wednesday to remove Boebert from her committee assignments, . But if they don't do it then Nancy Pelosi and the Dems should - like they did to the banshee troll Marjorie Taylor Greene.
But of course the psychotic orange animated excrement Trump is behind all of this, which is why he can never ne allowed near the levers of power again.
