Deputy Lauren Boebert (R-CO) made a vicious one-minute speech on Wednesday that highlighted “inappropriate actions” by various Democratic congressmen before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a vote to censor one of her Republican colleagues.
Boebert, speaking during a debate on the resolution to censor MP Paul Gosar (R-AZ), pointed to representatives Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) as examples. of those in Congress whose “unacceptable” conduct went without consequence.
Gosar’s staff posted a political anime video on social media, which he later removed, but not before Democrats attacked the post because of its perceived “threats of violence” because it showed, amid scenes of a country in crisis, a cartoon of Gosar stabbing. comic book deputy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
“Democratic policies are so pathetic and have done so badly that the left has nothing else to do but troll the internet looking for ways to offend and then try to target members and deprive them of their committees. This is a stupid waste of House time, Began Boebert. “But because the speaker indicated the speech to discuss inappropriate actions by members, right?”

Boebert, an outspoken freshman in Congress and a member of the Freedom Assembly, first noted conflicts around the far-left “squad” member Omar. Boebert referenced the revelation this year that Omar’s campaign paid nearly $ 3 million to her husband’s consulting firm, as well as rumors that swirled that Omar, a Somali-born naturalized U.S. citizen, once married his brother for immigration purposes, Omar repeatedly denied the claim. .
“The jihadist ‘squad’ member of Minnesota paid her husband – and not her brother-in-law, the other – more than a million dollars in campaign funds. This member is allowed on the Foreign Affairs Committee praising terrorists,” Boebert accused.
Switching to Waters, Boebert reiterated the concerns of many Republicans from April, when Waters told protesters in Minnesota to “become more confrontational” ahead of the Derek Chauvin trial. “A Democratic president has urged further violence in the streets outside of court,” Boebert said.
Finally, Boebert tore into Swalwell because of his links to an alleged Chinese spy, a bomb discovery first discovered by Axios last December.
“And then, the cherry on top, my colleague and a three-month presidential candidate from California who is on the Intelligence Committee slept with Fang Fang, a Chinese spy. Let me say this again, a member of Congress who receives confidential briefings has slept with the enemy. “Swalwell never revealed the extent of his relationship with Fang, but he rebatis on social media after Boebert’s remarks that the FBI found he had “done nothing wrong.”
“This is unacceptable—” Boebert began, but the Republican fire department was removed because her floor time was up.
Following the heated debate in the lower house, the House passed the resolution to censor Gosar 223-207, with only the two leading Never Trump Republicans, representatives Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Liz Cheney (R-WY), voting. with Democrats in favor of censorship.
Gosar, as a result, was formally reprimanded and stripped of his seats on the Natural Resources and Control and Reform Commissions.
