Yesterday, Colorado Republican Lauren Boebert was back in her home district meeting with constituents. During what appears to be an extemporaneous speech, Boebert takes aim at Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar.
Omar is a particularly vile individual. She is a terrorist simp who hasn’t found an Islamic terror group she can’t condone (Ilhan Omar Proves President Trump’s Point When She Refuses To Say She Does Not Support al Qaeda; DISGUSTING. Ilhan Omar Refers To US Troops During the Black Hawk Down Battle As Satan; Ilhan Omar To Be Keynote Speaker at Fundraiser for Terrorist Linked Organization).
This goes as far as referring to the attack on the United States on September 11, 2001, as a day “some people did something.” Her support for jihadi violence against Israel and her bone-deep anti-Semitism is likewise well established (Pelosi Dodges, Ducks, Dips, Dives, and Dodges Question About Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Statements; Nancy Pelosi and the Left Close Ranks to Defend Nutbaggery and Anti-Semitism).
In her personal life, she entered into an incestuous marriage with her brother (Allegations Regarding Omar’s Curious Marriage ARE Credible (That’s Why You Haven’t Heard Much About Them))…hopefully, for the purposes of immigration fraud…married a couple of more times…and just a year ago, she ditched her husband for a new boyfriend, a ‘political consultant’ to whom her campaign had steered several hundred thousand dollars; he simultaneously kicked his wife to the curb. See Ilhan Omar Named as “the Other Woman” in What Promises to Be a Very Ugly and Entertaining Divorce.
This is what Boebert had to say:
The other night on the House floor I had my first “Jihad Squad” moment.
I was getting into an elevator with one of my staffers. He and I are leaving the Capitol and going back to my office and we get in an elevator. And I see a Capitol Police officer running, running to the elevator. I see sweat all over his face. He’s reaching…the door’s shutting, I can’t open it. What’s happening? I look to my left, and there she is, Ilhan Omar. And I say well, she doesn’t’ have a backpack, we should be fine.
So naturally, the left is screaming racism:
"terrorist simp" is not a race

And the look-down-your-nose-at-those-people “conservatives” got all huffy and puffy about “we’re better than that” because that is just how they roll.
Boebert is not the good guy here. https://t.co/wpBukPQxLE

Actually, Boebert is the “good guy” here. Mocking Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and AOC and the rest of the America-hating “Squad” is something that should be done by every GOP member of Congress, every day. Boebert’s joke is absolutely on target, given Omar’s egregious support for Islamic terrorism. If you are going to take the side of people who are literally trying to drag this country down to Third World status just to feel good about yourself, maybe you shouldn’t feel good about yourself.
Ilhan Omar is not laughing. On Twitter, she responded:
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.
Yep. She’s heading back to that safe refuge of incestuous terrorist sympathizers, claiming that her behavior is typical of all Muslims and that making fun of her is anti-Muslim.
Make no mistake about it. Omar is a vicious bully, in addition to her other attributes. She was one of the prime movers in the effort to strip Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee assignments (House Democrats Move to Boot Marjorie Taylor Greene From Committee Assignments and GOP Pretends to Retaliate). On social media, the little fascists of the left are demanding that Boebert be stripped of her committee assignments because she gave Omar a sad, and there is little doubt the House Democrats will do just that.
If Kevin McCarthy and House Republicans meekly go along with punishing Boebert, just as they went along with punishing Marjorie Talyor Greene and Paul Gosar, then they have forfeited any right to ask us to support them (Marjorie Taylor Greene, Paul Gosar, 2022, and the Chicago Way).
