Upon reading the headline, I paused for a notable amount time considering if that actually happened.

She's doing everything she can to get Ilhan Omar killed and there are very few people in our government willing to defend Omar because their views aren't ultimately that much different from Boebert here.
 
2021-11-30 9:10:42 AM  
Laura?  Ilham?  Really, Subby?

So Bobo refused to apologize properly and just made things worse, doubling down on her terrorist rhetoric?  Oh, my.  Nobody could have seen that coming.  Nope.  Not a single soul.  I mean, it's not like she's a completely sociopathic, amoral, racist, gun-fellating, TFG-venerating, maniacal wastrel of oxygen, right?

Well, it's pretty much now clearly established in American jurisprudence that one has the right to shoot and kill anyone who seems even vaguely threatening, even if the person who allegedly feels threatened was the one who started the hostilities in the first place. So Ilham Omar should be able to just grab herself an AK-47 and go to town. That's how things are supposed to work now, I thought.

I am not sure if everyone gets it. Boebert is coming up with ridiculous stunts to get national attention. When Jimmy Kimmel devotes 10 minutes to show how stupid she is, we laugh but the GOP is happy about it as she gets more coverage. They don't give a rats ass if she is dumb. Same for all these other drummed up controversies.

She is doing it all for increasing her profile and for now she is winning.

Unfortunately true. Can anyone here imagine publishing images of murdering a coworker, after getting caught trying to bring loaded guns into work, and still keep your job and or freedom?
On top of that Boebert has a growing arrest record, four and counting.  She also had over $50k in back taxes owed on her business owned by her registered sex offender husband.  She's garbage and should also have her committee assignments removed of they haven't been already.  Then she can spend more time with MTG, Gaetz, and the others on the congressional shiatwagon.

I am going out on a limb here, but it may be a reference to the Dems who called Omar an anti-semite for not blindly supporting Israel, or at least didn't defend her. Could be wrong, it's early, coffee is on the table.

I guess that it is positive that MyHusbandIsASexOffender even tried to smooth things over.

It only seems to have made things worse but what can you expect from someone who hates her children so much that she does not want to give other people the opportunity to love their own children.

I mean that's pretty obvious to anyone paying attention. Democratic leadership has on more than one occasion tried to punish Omar for speaking truth. They don't like her all that much, which means she's an easy, isolated target for Nazis.

What I want to know is what the *#@ ever became of trailer-trash woman's travel reimbursement scam. She clearly attempted to defraud the government, what was reported was clear as day crime, and then nothing. How is she still in Congress? How is she not in prison yet? This grifter should have been in prison already so we never have to hear about her trash life again.

Ah, nothing like right wing Christian's pushing their narrative that you should be afraid of Islam. That math really checks out considering every time I leave the house I see at least one sticker that says something like, "Liberal hunting season!"

I played the IED lottery in Baghdad for 15 months and am more nervous now then I was then when I see some fat redneck eye f*cking me because I have rainbow socks on or something. I think it's pretty clear who the terrorists really are these days.

While true of the party faithful, the much larger centre-right contingent in the United States is pissed off at Biden because they feel he doesn't care about their economic circumstances. The last thing Republicans need is to be seen not only as the party of obstruction but the one that is so focused on its racism that it can't effectively govern. They need the blame to keep going towards Biden, because every time the spotlight comes to them it makes them appear even worse by comparison.

Yes...but.

I mean, if her goal is millions of dollars, then she's absolutely succeeding.  But in her district, controversy very well could lead to an election loss.  Again, election loss = $$$ in Fox News payments, so possible win for her.  However, if even a part of her wants to avoid being voted out as a one-termer, then she's really not making the smartest plays.  Shocking, I know.

Nothing says you have to accept an apology from someone who isn't sorry.  In fact, it's best not to.
 
2021-11-30 9:58:07 AM  
First of all it is insufficient to call Boebert a "Karen". "Karen"s are annoying but ultimately harmless and sometimes funny to watch. Boebert is not only openly racist in a position of great power in our government, but put the lives of our elected officials in danger on Jan. 6th as she live tweeted the locations they were being taken to in order to avoid the violent armed insurrectionists attacking our Capitol. She is dangerous and the rhetoric she spews is harmful to our citizens.

Secondly, to anyone who votes for the GoP but doesn't think the GoP as a whole is racist: This person who just so happens to be white is attacking a person who just so happens to be a person of color. This is NOT an isolated incident, it is a pattern. So while you may not think you are racist, you are at the very least supporting people who ARE clearly racist, and to the rest of us you wear the same stink. You want people to stop calling you a racist? Stop voting for people who are.

Yeah, that won't break the system unless it is done in sufficient numbers and even then it would only break it temporarily. The way in our system is designed means that the ONLY inevitable outcome is two dominant parties.

We had our chance in 2016 when 2 of the most disliked candidates were going against each other.  America spoke.  We don't want anything other than 2 parties.  I hate it, but I accept it.  It's past time to move on and support anyone capable of beating Republicans.

Those words you omitted might have been doing more heavy lifting than you give them credit for.

The phrase "Distinction without a difference" comes to mind.

Boebert will say things to put Omar at risk.
Not seeing a whole lot of people jumping up to help her defend herself against stochastic terrorism.

In fact, fta, Steny Hoyer is the one who recommended the phone call as a way to clear the air or whatever "decorum" bullshiat he clings to like the last dresser out of the Titanic.

And no calls for censure.  For calling a fellow representative a terrorist and islamaphobing all over her microphone to an audience of rabid bigots.

Boebert wants her dead.  But it's hard to make the argument that the Democratic party ... cares.
