Lauren Boebert: Alt-Facts Word Salad At CPAC

  • 8 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) calls bullcrap at CPAC in Orlando this weekend.

The New York Post reports from Orlando, site of the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) where Republicans from lowly rank-and-file to ex-President Donald Trump have converged to lick their wounds and plot revenge after last year’s electoral defeats–and freshman Rep. Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert is shining brightly as a fresh luminary in the freak kingdom:

Freshman firebrand Congresswoman Lauren Boebert drew cheers at CPAC Saturday after saying she was no fan of the continued security around Washington, D.C. — and “Fort Pelosi.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if we start quartering soldiers in the committee hearing rooms,” Boebert said during a gun-rights panel at the annual GOP confab.

After Rep. Boebert exhorted her hundreds of thousands of social media followers to come to Washington D.C. on January 6th, to engage in what Boebert vowed would be “some of the most important days in American history,” then challenged the metal detectors set up because some members of Congress are worried about being shot by other members, complaining about all that extra security at the Capitol is…bold! It’s not the first time we’ve wondered whether Boebert is being audaciously or just cluelessly hypocritical. But as evidence of the latter, as Newsweek reports, from here the discussion only grew less coherent:

On Saturday, Boebert continued to attack Democrats during the CPAC panel by stating that they “don’t want you to be able to protect yourself, they don’t want you to have freedom of speech, and they don’t want you to have freedom of religion.”

“They are the party of ‘no,’ and we are saying ‘no’—we are saying a big ‘hell no’ to all of their noes,” Boebert added. [Pols emphasis]

Plot this with us, readers. The real “Party of No” is the party Lauren Boebert says “no” to. But if you’re saying “no” to the “Party of No,” aren’t you actually saying “yes?” What about when you’re saying “hell no to the noes” of the “Party of No?” This is why you never use double negatives, let alone quadruple negatives, when the goal is for listeners to understand what you’re trying to say.

On one issue, however, Boebert is crystal clear:

Self-aware or not, Lauren Boebert and the reality the rest of us mutually acknowledge have parted ways.

    1. “Read”? — oh, hell no! — that’s an amendment too far . . .

      (It wasn’t two weeks ago she was demanding in committee to be assigned paid security.)

      Any parent who’s had a toddler knows that petulant no-no-no-no phase . . .

      (Some toddlers never get past it.)

      Q-bie doesn’t get enough nap time . . .

      1. PewPew's Hell No!! is duly noted.

  1. Seeing her absolutely drool and slobber over Trump's speech in her Twitter feed signals precisely what a mentally disturbed cult member she is.

    And the biggest problem with cult members is that they can be very dangerous.

  2. If CPAC was supposed to give the GOP a chance to get all kissy-face and start a reunification process. I don't think it worked.

    The panic must be starting to seep in. All the people on the right know unequivocally that they will never win again as a split party. 

    Trump ain't the forgiving kind.

    Someone tell me a way to victory for the Republicans. 

  3. The real “Party of No” is the party Lauren Boebert says “no” to. But if you’re saying “no” to the “Party of No,” aren’t you actually saying “yes?” What about when you’re saying “hell no to the noes” of the “Party of No?” 

    I don't "know" the answer to your question, but as my husband would say, sounds like the beginning of a great new country song.
