I generally don’t pay a lot of attention to what Rep. Lauren Boebert has to say – because it’s usually not much different from the average right-wing propaganda that used to be passed down from inbox to inbox before they had a whole array of networks for that kind of thing.

It’s also counterproductive after a time to debunk all of the nonsense she tweets or shouts on the floor of Congress because there are unfortunately a wide swath of voters who either agree with everything she has to say and have largely been conditioned by conservatives to not expect anything better from their elected representatives. That said, her appearance on Fox News on Thursday night was rather telling – not because she said anything of substance or even coherence, but because of what she was ranting about.

The open bigotry and racism of the GOP has been the point in the years following the former guy’s entry into politics – and Boebert melted down on Laura Ingraham’s show about how she’s tired of being called a racist, bigot and conspiracy theorist – despite doing things in her short time in Congress that would check off all three boxes. A good rule of thumb is that when a Republican whines about a particular issue, it’s because the rhetoric is effectively working against them.

   

It’s why we need to continue to push back against her and the rest of the bigots among the Republican ranks and call out their racist rhetoric for what it is – or their dwelling on conspiracy theories manufactured in Russia or at home. The same is true whether you’re a candidate for office this year or a voter working to get out the vote.
