Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who has repeatedly defended the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, is now claiming that the mayor of the city of Chicago is an insurrectionist.
Boebert was triggered by a Twitter posting from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot regarding the Supreme Court and how the right-wing justices may well come after the LGBTQ community once they’ve finished taking away the right of women to make their own reproductive choices.
That led Boebert to respond:
“Lori Lightfoot just issued a ‘call to arms’ to her fellow radicals directly on Twitter. While people are being slain in her streets on a daily basis, all she can worry about is endangering more lives with her reckless words. Shame on her. She should resign.”
Mayor Lightfoot is warning people to be ready for the next assault on personal rights, privacy, and freedom, so that makes her an insurrectionist? That’s complete BS. Sounds like Boebert is merely trying to tar the mayor with the same charge that has been leveled at her for her role in trying to excuse the Capitol riots.
Boebert has been busy making a complete fool of herself in recent weeks:
- The Colorado Republican was roundly mocked on Twitter for announcing she’d written a book.
- Boebert said anyone upset with the passage of the “Don’t Say Gay” law in Florida should “build” their own Florida.
The irony of Lauren Boebert calling anyone an insurrectionist is so rich that it makes you wonder if Bobo even knows the meaning of the word.
