QAnon Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Co.) used the same rhetoric she spouted the day of the Capitol insurrection in an attempt to incite evangelical “Christians” to revolt against and remove President Joe Biden from office and institute church rule.
On January 6th, Boebert specifically referenced 1776 and the American Revolution on her Twitter feed just before a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol with the intent of overthrowing democracy and assassinating lawmakers. Boebert herself literally fed information on the whereabouts of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to the violent horde of domestic terrorists.
On 9/11 of all days, Boebert once again appeared to be inciting insurrection, this time during remarks to a group of evangelicals.
“When we see Biden address the nation and the world and show more contempt and aggravation and aggression towards unvaccinated Americans than he does terrorists, we have a problem,” Boebert said. “And that’s why I have articles of impeachment to impeach Joe Biden, Kamala Harris.”
“We cannot take another 18 months, we cannot take another three years of this poor, failed leadership,” she continued. “We are sons and daughters of revolutionaries. They went to battle for a lot less. They took a stand for a lot less, and it’s time we get involved. I need you involved in every local level. I need you speaking up. I need the world to hear your voice. You know the word of God, and you know that there is power in your words, that the world was framed by words. You have the Lord God Almighty on your side. I need you to use your voice and speak.”
Boebert is apparently referring to the Afghanistan withdrawal while conveniently ignoring the fact that Donald Trump is the one who negotiated the withdrawal with the Taliban and secured the release of 5,000 Taliban fighters and their leader. Trump literally negotiated with terrorists and handed them control of Afghanistan.
And instituting a vaccine mandate wouldn’t be necessary if unvaccinated people had gotten the vaccine instead of politicizing them and masks. With the Delta variant of the COVID virus wrecking havoc, Biden had no choice but to take action to save lives. That is real leadership.
Furthermore, Boebert seems to be asking evangelicals— the American equivalent of the Taliban— to violently overthrow the government. She didn’t just stop there. She went on to call for replacing the government with the church.
“It’s time the church speaks up,” Boebert said. “The church has relinquished too much authority to government. We should not be taking orders from the government; the government needs to be looking at the church and saying, ‘How do we do this effectively?'”
Here’s the video:
This proves without a doubt that Boebert despises the Constitution and wants to overthrow it. The Constitution mandates secular rule and the separation of church and state. But Boebert wants a bloody revolution to establish a new nation ruled by the church instead of a democratically elected government. That makes her a threat to democracy and it makes the church a threat as well.
