Well, that's it... the final sign of the Apocalypse

We had a good run!

Huh, wonder who made her make that statement.

Stop oppressing Rep. Omar based on your backwards primitive religious beliefs, Lauren.

As if she means it.

She can fark right off
 
2021-11-26 4:37:28 PM  
She's sorry she got dogpiled.  If she didn't she'd keep doing this shiat and worse.  She can fark all the way off with her insincere bullshiat.

"I apologize to anyone in the Muslim community I offended with my comment about Rep. Omar," Boebert wrote. "I have reached out to her office to speak with her directly. There are plenty of policy differences to focus on without this unnecessary distraction."

'I'm sorry you were offended' isn't an apology.

Gordon Bennett: "I apologize to anyone in the Muslim community I offended with my comment about Rep. Omar," Boebert wrote. "I have reached out to her office to speak with her directly. There are plenty of policy differences to focus on without this unnecessary distraction."

'I'm sorry you were offended' isn't an apology.


I'm not Muslim and I was offended.

Let's see if these dumb f*ckers turn on her for apologizing, or if they gloss it over like they do Trump's inconsistencies.

Boebert never apologized for the reference during a house floor speech calling Rep Omar "Jihad Squad member from Minnesota"

I think Boebert realized without an apology she would easily face a censure vote
 
2021-11-26 5:21:34 PM  
Meh. Gotta maintain the fiction that you're not a bigot. That's the thing about racists - they absolutely hate being called that.
 
2021-11-26 5:57:35 PM  
Impressive!

Even less sincere than this:

meanwhile, the idiots on CNN and the rest of the "horserace narrative at all costs" MSM that pretend to try to attract liberal viewers will call   Rep Omar an anti-semite the first chance they get when she stands up to Israel, which seems like it should be even more upsetting to Muslims...?

RolandTGunner: Huh, wonder who made her make that statement.


And whether that person was holding a gun to her head.
 
2021-11-26 6:41:54 PM  
Note that she didn't apologize to Mayor Pete for the "chestfeeding" crack, nor did she apologize to the President of the United States for calling him "that piece of crap in the White House" in the same speech.

Wow a "sorry if you were offended" apology.

How to apologise sincerely 101:

Say "I'm sorry that I..." - if you say "I'm sorry if..." punch yourself in the mouth.
Use active language that takes ownership - "I'm sorry that I said this offensive thing".  Don't use passive language - "I'm sorry that offense was caused" - or blaming language - "I'm sorry that people were offended".
Show that you understand why it was offensive, and promise not to do it again.
Take a concrete measure as an act of contrition - large donation, community service, etc.
Don't fark up the same way again, show that you learned.

Of course she's barely even going to manage one of these steps.

The most important part is she made up her kickass story.

I just told my supermodel wife about this, and she suggested we have a threesome with her best friend.
 
2021-11-26 6:44:37 PM  
Not a single coward in the GQP will condemn what she said but she will have criticism for the apology.

The GQP is the biggest that our nation has ever faced.

FARK YOU.

Boebert spouts racist garbage on house floor.  Pelosi: I sleep.

Omar says something about Israel.  Pelosi:  REAL SHAIT.
 
2021-11-26 6:47:34 PM  
Ok then - prove it: resign.
 
2021-11-26 6:49:36 PM  
So, she's apologizing for saying a thing that Omar says she didn't say because Boebert doesn't have the guts to say it in person?

So, she's apologizing for the something she made up, and failing at it.  That's some weird meta level of failure

how did this picture-perfect example of 'poisoning the well' get two likes?
 
2021-11-26 6:55:29 PM  
I'm surprised she apologized. I don't get it. Was it too much, too soon? Because the world she's trying to bring about is one where people like her can say things like that with no consequences. This feels like a step back. Did she just misjudge? Because I'm not sure the GOP would have done anything to her.

Maybe I'm just accidentally time-travelling from a few years from now if things continue on their present course, but it feels super weird that she bowed to pressure.
 
2021-11-26 6:56:27 PM  
"Fact, this buffoon looks down when she sees me at the Capitol, this whole story is made up," Omar wrote. "Sad she thinks bigotry gets her clout."

Bullies are cowards.

Conspicuously not an apology to Rep Omar

Next on Tucker: "Omar calls an elected official just doing her job a 'BUFFOON'. Just look how the liberals have abandoned any pretense of civility".

The seventh seal will break when Lauren apologizes for being a bigoted "caravan of diseases," and means it.

Interesting.

It's hardly a sincere apology, sure. But anything to the left of the "yeah I said it, and if your mother didn't like it, then fark her too" double down, coming from the likes of Boebert, is a bit surprising right now.

go find clips of their on-air panels after these "incidents"  where they shamelessly actually ran guests and on air reporters who said proudly  with straight faces that this is evidence she's an anti-semite

This is the sound of someone who realized they would soon have no committee appointments

In virtually any public or private job in this country you'd be fired immediately for that comment. She won't even get a hand slap in congress for it.
