Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert desperately wants to be thought of as an important member of the Republican Party, but she repeatedly proves to be nothing more than a laughingstock.
Such is the case with Boebert’s call for conservatives to be more aggressive
On Monday, Boebert tweeted out, “Conservatives, we need to be on OFFENSE not DEFENSE.”
But that tweet left Boebert wide open to an obvious counterattack which she really should have seen coming, providing she actually knows more about the English language and sentence structure than a 5-year-old, which has been the subject of great debate since she first appeared on the political scene. After all, this is the same woman who has also said the following:
Being on “offense” is something Bobo excels at, as she’s among the most offensive people on the planet, which Twitter users were only too happy to remind her.
Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks she knows why her party failed to win big in the 2022 midterm election, but her theory led to mockery and ridicule when she shared it on social media.
In a Twitter thread she posted Friday, Greene said she “truly” believes “one of the most important paths to saving America is by having as many strong Republican governors as possible” and “keeping them in place.” She added:
Greene also took the ubiquitous right-wing shots at the media, which is a requirement for Republicans even though they have Fox News pumping out their propaganda 24/7.
But it was Greene’s call for “candidate quality” that drew the most commentary and mockery on Twitter. After all, if such a thing actually mattered, the congresswoman would never have been elected (much less reelected) to the seat she currently holds.
As votes continue to be counted in several key congressional races across the country. it has become clear over the last 48 hours that Republicans underperformed in spectacular fashion when it comes to the midterm elections.
One member of the GOP who did win was Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), whose heavily gerrymandered district helped her glide to a second term in office.
Despite the underwhelming results for Republicans, Greene took to Twitter and posted this :
A few minutes later, Greene realized her mistake and posted another tweet:
Quacking would probably be more appropriate since there’s no reason anyone should be afraid of a political party that is being dragged down by failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump and appears less relevant by the day.
Greene was mocked for not bothering to proof her tweet before hitting “send,” and some of the replies are pure gold.
Proving yet again just how incredibly ignorant she is about all manner of things, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) launched a fact-free attack on President Joe Biden and his administration for supporting the expansion of wind power across the United States.
According to Greene, wind energy is useless because it’s not always windy.
In a video clip from Patriot Takes, Greene whines:
“(Biden) thinks wind turbines are the way to go! I mean what is he going to do when it’s not a windy day? Is he going to stand out there and blow hot air at all the wind turbines? Because that’s basically what he does!”
But as the Energy Department explains, wind energy is one of the best non-fossil fuel alternatives the United States has:
Land-based, utility-scale wind turbines provide one of the lowest-priced energy sources available today. Furthermore, wind energy’s cost competitiveness continues to improve with advances in the science and technology of wind energy.
But of course such facts mean nothing to someone as willfully ignorant as Greene or her fellow right-wing nuts.
And this isn’t the first time Marge has railed against alternative power sources. She has also attacked solar power because she claims she doesn’t want to have to go to bed when the sun sets.
One thing is certain when it comes to Marjorie Taylor Greene: The lights may be on, but no one’s home.
The Republican Party might just as well change their name to the Russian Party, because once again they’re using something they imported from Moscow.
According to HuffPost, an ad for the GOP’s “Commitment to America” plan looks more like a commitment to Vladimir Putin, filled with stock video footage shot in both Russia and Ukraine.
The GOP’s video, “The Preamble to the Commitment to America,” opens with a narrator highlighting aspects of what it means to be an American.
“We celebrate the rich heritage of the American story and the vibrancy of the American Dream,” the voice says, over footage of a drilling rig at sunrise.
But this video snippet, an apparent nod to America’s natural resources, wasn’t filmed in America. It’s stock footage created by Serg Grbanoff, a filmmaker based in Russia.
There’s also a scene showing a little boy running in a field with a toy airplane in his hand. The words “Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” are shown on the screen, an obvious reference to the Declaration of Independence, but the little boy likely wouldn’t have any idea what’s in that document because American history probably isn’t taught in Russian classrooms:
This clip was also created by Grbanoff, and also filmed in the Volgograd region. Here’s a screenshot of the image in the GOP’s video versus an original shot on Shutterstock’s website:
You might think the GOP would come clean and admit they screwed up, but instead, they tried to blame the messenger, with a spokesperson for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) complaining:
Also interesting how the GOP since Trump took over can’t manage to do anything without bowing a knee to their real home back in the frozen tundra of Mother Russia.
If it walks like a traitor, talks like a traitor, and makes ads like one, it’s a traitor.
