Facing calls to resign, Boebert shifts blame to Democrats, Hollywood

Last edited Wed Jan 13, 2021, 01:46 PM - Edit history (1)

DENVER — Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert on Monday responded to calls for her resignation by describing Democrats as hypocrites and naming celebrities and politicians she blames for inciting violence.

“We should take Democrats at their word when they say never let a crisis go to waste. Their hypocrisy is on full display with talks of impeachment, censure, and other ways to punish Republicans for false accusations of inciting the type of violence they have so frequently and transparently supported in the past,” the Republican from Rifle said in a statement.

"They accuse me of live-tweeting the Speaker’s presence after she had been safely removed from the Capitol, as if I was revealing some big secret, when it fact this removal was also being broadcast on TV," Boebert wrote. (notice she doesn't deny it)

Boebert also tweeted "Today is 1776" ahead of the attack.

A group of Democrats in Colorado have called on Boebert and Lamborn to resign, saying in a letter that they helped incite the violence. Monday, #ResignBoebert also trended on Twitter.

1. How about your reconnaissance tour

with Nazis the day before. The ones that came back the next day to hunt for Pelosi.

14. Capitol Police said not to use social media. Did she know it was broadcasted at the time, in hiding?

.

Even so, her post was confirmation that the "FAKE NEWS MSM" would have been correct.

Why did she even feel motivated to disclose such information when cowering during a siege?


Was she trying to redirect the mob to look somewhere else to get Pelosi, or was it more self-serving(out of fear)?

.

2. Where is the explanation for posing with Nazi's the day before the attempted insurrection?

I'm sure they are "very fine people", right?

3. I don't think

that the mob in the Capitol Building were watching their televisions at the time she was giving them the speaker's location!

EXPELL the idiot for abetting the attempted murder of the Speaker of the House!

11. "...when it (sic) fact this removal was also being broadcast on TV."

No, Speaker Pelosi and VP Pence's whereabouts and the locations of the entirety of the Capitol staff were not being broadcast by the press. Who were simultaneously being violently attacked, I will add.

13. She did not deny it and no doubt she had no idea the media

was reporting that while she is hidden away from TV cameras. She only came up with that after seeing the coverage.

An opportunity she would deny to others.

18. All of these traitors need to be expelled

and tried for sedition. Cruz, Hawley also in the Senate. Anyone who promulgated the election conspiracy lie and whipped up the MAGAts has no place in our gov't. As we flush Trump out of our political consciousness so too must these enablers be flushed away with him.

“Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass,” Brooks said.
