Lauren Boebert Says SHE’S A Victim Of The Club Q Mass Shooting

Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert wants us all to feel sorry for her because she says that she’s also a victim of the Club Q mass shooting that left five dead and 17 others injured in Colorado Springs last Saturday.

During an appearance on One America News Network, Boebert claimed the families of the Club Q victims “don’t even have time to grieve before the Left starts pointing the blame and trying to find a cause for this instead of actually going after the deranged shooter, the evil person who did this.”

And then came the congresswoman’s claim that she’s just as much of a victim as those who were shot at the nightclub.

“I’ve been accused of just about every mass shooting there has been. I’ve been blamed for all of it. It has to come to an end. The Left is pissed I won my election, so they’re trying to find something to go after me about.”

Yeah, as if there’s any shortage of things we can “go after” Boebert for. After all, this is the same woman who has said the following things:

Boebert’s victimhood claim was met with righteous scorn on Twitter.

Trump Attorney Jenna Ellis Says Victims Of The Club Q Shooting Are ‘Burning In Hell’

You probably remember Jenna Ellis as one of the clueless attorneys who tried to help disgraced, one-term former president Donald Trump overturn the 2020 election with specious lawsuits that were repeatedly tossed out of court with prejudice.

Ellis claims to be a Christian, and yet something she said about the mass shooting at Club Q in Colorado proves she’s just a hate-filled sack of human excrement who enjoys trying to feel superior to anyone she doesn’t like.

On her podcast, The Jenna Ellis Show, the aforementioned fake Christian proudly declared:

“The five people who were killed in the nightclub that night, there is no evidence at all that they were Christians. So assuming that they were not, that they had not accepted the truth of the gospel of Christ and affirmed Jesus Christ as the lord of their life, they are now reaping the consequences of having eternal damnation. And that is far, far greater – we should be having that conversation. Instead of just the tragedy of what happened to the body, we need to be talking about what happened to the soul and the fact that they are now in eternal separation from our lord and savior Jesus Christ.”

It won’t surprise you to learn that this isn’t the first time Ellis has said horrific things about the LGBTQ community.

In 2017, she posted this on Facebook:

“Whether or not homosexuals are nice, wise people, or misunderstood, or mean is not the issue. … Sin is always sin, even if nice people commit it.”

Ellis was lit up on Twitter for her hateful remarks.

Ellis tried to dig her way out of what she said on her podcast, asserting that she was merely trying to encourage people to get “saved.”

If Jenna Ellis wants to see who is going to hell, all she needs to do is look in the nearest mirror.

WATCH Ted Cruz Get Roundly Booed When He Says More Guns Are The Solution To Mass Shootings

Despite having zero proof that more guns are the way to stop mass shootings in the United States, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Saturday at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin that the only way to stop bad guys with guns is to give even more guns to the good guys and anyone else who wants one, or even a hundred.

In other words, Cruz was spouting the same bullshit every member of the GOP clings to because they’re owned by companies that manufacture weapons of mass murder.

Cruz told attendees:

“Whenever you have a mass murder … you have Democrats in Washington, the step they immediately go to is we need to take away firearms from law-abiding citizens. OK, you can clap for that except for the minor problem that it doesn’t work. If the objective is to stop these crimes, gun control is singularly ineffective.”

Of course, the same could be said about lack of gun control, which is clearly not doing a damn thing to decrease shootings.

Instead, Cruz suggested the country adopt his plan:

“If you want to stop crime, you target the bad guys. You target the criminals, the felons, the fugitives. You prosecute them, you put them in jail, you get them off the streets, and you also enhance security at vulnerable targets.”

The Texas Republican said the same was true for shootings at schools:

“Two weeks ago, I stood on the Senate floor and tried to pass legislation I’ve introduced that would double the number of police officers in school. If we want to keep our kids safe, and I desperately want to keep our kids safe, the most effective step we can do is to have police officers there to protect them who can intercept a mass murderer before he gets into the school and stop them.”

Loud boos and jeering could be heard among those listening to Cruz, who continued to spout platitudes he likely got directly from the NRA:

“Look, if you have a solution to stop the deranged evil murderers, I’d love to hear it. My solution is to throw them in jail. Stop them before they commit these crimes. There are some we won’t know about beforehand, and the single best step to stop them is to have armed officers on campus that can stop them before they kill our kids.

“But look, instead you guys can instead sing kumbaya with them and hope they’ll just stop, but what you’re proposing doesn’t work.”

Neither does what you’re proposing, Ted, and there’s a river of blood flowing across this country that proves so.

Ted Cruz Gets Confronted On Flight And Asked If He Can Name Any Of The Uvalde Shooting Victims

A supporter of Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on a flight and asked him to name a single victim of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, that took place in May. Video of that encounter is going viral on social media.

The video, which was posted on the Twitter account of Beto for Everyone is prefaced with this note:

“Senator Cruz was on my flight, and I asked him to name any of the Uvalde victims. He couldn’t.”

When the video begins, the Beto supporter remarks:

“Hey, we’re in Houston? I thought we were going to Cancun?”

Cruz doesn’t respond, but the man continues, telling the Texas Republican:

“Senator, thank you for everything you’ve done since Uvalde. All those podcast episodes must have raised a lot of money for you.”

Cruz finally speaks, insisting that he tried to pass school security legislation, but Democrats refused to support more security guards or metal detectors in public schools.

To that, the man retorts:

“How did you have time when you were recording a shit ton of podcast episodes?”

When another passenger says the man should let Cruz “fly in peace,” the O’Rourke supporter responds:

“I’m fine,” and Cruz can can fly in peace when “children can be buried in peace.”

Cruz asks the man filming if he knew “the facts at all,” the man responds with a question of his own:

“Do you know any of the names of the Uvalde victims?”

Cruz insists he does indeed know the names of victims from Robb Elementary, but never once utters a single name to back up that claim, telling the man:

“You don’t care about the facts. You’re a partisan — that’s ok.”

As he turns away, the O’Rourke supporter rightly asks:

“You’re not a partisan?”

Congress GOP Gun Crime Viral Video WTF?!

Viral Video: Marjorie Taylor Greene Appears To Kick A Gun Control Activist Who Disagrees With Her

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) appears to have committed a crime that was caught on video today in Washington, D.C.

Greene was walking and talking to activists who support sensible gun control. The congresswoman is vehemently opposed to any laws that would regulated guns in any manner whatsoever.

One of the activists, Santiago Mayer, the executive director of Voters of Tomorrow asked Greene about her staunch opposition to laws that would help reduce mass shootings, to which Greene replied:

“Shame on you. You know what? Go move to another country where they take away your guns.”

Mayer:

“I want to live in a country where kids don’t get shot.”

A sneering Greene told Mayer:

“You’re not even a grateful American.”

Another woman who was wearing a blue dress, then inquired of Greene:

“How does the second Amendment prevent gun violence?”

If you watch closely at the 1:15 mark of the video, it appears that Greene kicks the woman to make her move out of her walking path. The startled woman is clearly surprised, and a few seconds later an aide to Greene mentions that it’s against the law to block a member of Congress.

As she walks past the woman in the blue dress, Greene seems to say that she should just consider being kicked an “accident.”

Mayer later confirmed that Greene had indeed kicked a member of his team:
