Freedumb On The March: Boebert Reopens "COVID Cafe"

  • by: Colorado Pols

That’s the word from upstart CD-3 Republican congressional candidate Lauren Boebert, owner of the Shooters Grill in Rifle Colorado which is apparently open for business whether those unelected health department bureaucratists say it’s okay or not. After all, the armed wait staff–that’s the place’s kitsch you see–haven’t shot anybody yet, and that means COVID is obviously a hoax! Back in 2017, Boebert’s restaurant had an incident involving Clostridium bacteria hitching a ride on their food service at the Rifle Rodeo that resulted in about 80 people spending some unplanned quality time on their porcelain thrones.

But now you can get a little COVID on the side with your Shooters Grill chicken tenders!

If Gov. Jared Polis and the Garfield County Public Health Department shut Boebert down, which for the sake of the idiots who come for lunch and all their friends and family we hope is today, it’s just more free press and Republican primary votes for her campaign. There’s no downside for Boebert, other than the obvious issue of exposing herself, her employees, and the community she would like to represent in Congress to a deadly pandemic.

The voters worried about that aren’t the voters Boebert is appealing to.

    1. Over here on the front-range side of wacktitude, the folks at Covid & Contagion are still working at achieving that.

      As of 1:00 pm, maybe twenty cars in the parking lot (BC, I never once saw more than three or four cars in that lot), maybe a quarter of those reporters and news support crews with cameras.  The “Open” sign is not lit, but there is a crowd of real Americans nutjobs, maybe twenty to thirty, milling around outside in close quarters on a small fenced patio, a bit larger than a good-sized holding cell, belonging to the business.  No law enforcement, police or DougCo sheriffs, in sight.

      (For perspective, this business contagion factory is in a very small strip building on a quiet, out of the way, street that is lightly trafficked; it is not on any kind of thoroughfare.  This is not a drive-by-and-stop-in location; you have to be headed there as a destination.  It is located maybe two miles from the Castle Rock police headquarters, and maybe a mile from the DougCo Sherriff’s office.

      That crowd of Mother’s Day “customers” were likely not that many “regulars,” but invitees.)

      1. I was wondering about the marketing scheme which brought out "twice our normal Mother's Day" crowd.

        Suppose "leader" Neville loaned them a email list?  Or social media to some site like the local branch of RMGO or Tea Party remnants?

        1. I commented yesterday that I personally found it difficult to believe that Wingnuttille père would have been a happenstance visitor or casual passerby on Mother’s Day.

        1. Do you suppose she has counted up commas, semi-colons and colons?  Are their exclamation points, or do the modern day patriots need to supply their own?

          1. Not certain about her platform on punctuation. But I do wonder if the "I'm not going to wait on the gubmint to tell me what to do" candidate understands she's running for a seat in the gubmint's legislative branch, which literally by definition passes laws telling people what to do or not do.

    1. Why do you hate the 3rd CD? There's hardly a guarantee a Democrat would win, even if Calamity Jane upsets Tipton. I do think she's a longshot and I fully agree she's fun to watch.
