Rep. Lauren Boebert

With federal charges of seditious conspiracy raining down on the far-right extremist Oath Keepers outfit, there appears to be even greater scrutiny in terms of looking for any connections between that organization and elected officials. Not surprisingly, far-right loon Rep Lauren Boebert's (R-CO) name came up.

It seems Boebert was promoting the Oath Keepers and urging fellow extremists to attend their rallies years before she ran for Congress. Patriot Takes discovered the following post from Boebert’s Shooter’s Grill Twitter account, promoting the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters, another extremist group.


The rabidly reactionary Congresswoman's support of the Oath Keepers is of great concern, especially since the group is now accused of a seditious conspiracy connected to a mob effort to help lead a coup overturning the 2020 election in Trump's favor. Much like her crazy sister from another mother in Rep. Greene, Lauren Boebert has proven time and time again that unhinged zealots like her have no place in American society nonetheless Congress.

These suggestions, whether made in bad faith or ignorance, completely misunderstand the social function of prohibiting abortion, which is to exert control over women and all people who can get pregnant.

In adopting or replicating the right’s framing of anti-abortionists as “pro-life,” these outlets mystify the conservative movement’s history and current goals. Conservatives have sought to dismantle the United State’s limited safety net since the passage of the New Deal. Expecting the movement to reverse course now is absurd, and suggesting so serves primarily to obfuscate the economic hardship the end of Roe will inflict on people forced to carry a pregnancy to term.

Donald Trump's hand-picked candidate Blake Masters is the latest to endorse the unpopular idea.

The front-runner in the GOP primary to run for Senate in Arizona in November against Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly suggested on June 23 that Social Security should be privatized, an approach to the popular government program that experts say could jeopardize a vital financial lifeline for retired Americans.
