My latest in PJ Media, which I wrote before Boebert joined the spineless and apologized, becoming one of the many who have allowed false Muslim victimhood posturing to intimidate them.
One of the reasons why Leftists generally despise Christianity is because Leftism is a religion in itself, and one that abhors competition. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Tito’s Handmade) has prayed to George Floyd, who is depicted as Christ himself at Catholic University of America. Now Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) has run afoul of the House Inquisition by mocking one of its most sacred and revered figures, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mogadishu). There are calls for Boebert to be censured and stripped of her committee assignments, all because she made a joke at Omar’s expense. Thought experiment: If Omar had made a joke at Boebert’s expense, would she be facing calls to be censured today? Come on, man! She would be lionized everywhere and hailed as the funniest member of Congress since Elizabeth Warren. (What’s that? Warren is serious?)
It all started Thursday, when Patriot Takes, a Leftist Twitter account, published a video of Boebert addressing a friendly crowd. “Actually I have an Ilhan story for you,” Boebert begins, and the crowd laughs appreciatively. “So the other night on the House floor was not my first Jihad Squad moment,” Boebert continued. She was referring to her response to the recent censure of Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) for mocking another Leftist sacred cow, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Ditz).
Boebert, as Stephen Kruiser details here, skewered Democrat hypocrisy in a fiery speech in which she foresaw what is happening to her now. “Democrat policies are so pathetic,” Boebert said, “and have done so poorly that the left has nothing better to do but troll the internet looking for ways to get offended and then try to target members and strip them of their committees. This is a dumb waste of the House’s time. But since the Speaker has designated the floor to discuss members’ inappropriate actions, shall we? The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid her husband, and not her brother-husband, the other one, over a million dollars in campaign funds. This member is allowed on the foreign affairs committee while praising terrorists.”
Boebert continued her “Ilhan story” by saying: “I was getting into an elevator with one of my staffers. And he and I were leaving the Capitol, we’re going back to my office, we get in the elevator, and I see a Capitol Police officer running, hurriedly, to the elevator. I see threat all over his face, and he’s reaching. The door’s shutting, and I can’t open it. What’s happening? I look to my left, and there she is: Ilhan Omar. And I said, ‘Well, she doesn’t have a backpack, we should be fine.’”
Omar herself claimed this never even happened: “Fact, this buffoon looks down when she sees me at the Capitol, this whole story is made up. Sad she thinks bigotry gets her clout. Anti-Muslim bigotry isn’t funny & shouldn’t be normalized. Congress can’t be a place where hateful and dangerous Muslims tropes get no condemnation.”
There is more. Read the rest here.
