Boebert Disses Every College She Represents

Rep. Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert (R).

Rep. Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert (R-ifle) debuted her new column at far-right infotainment site The Blaze today, and as you could have predicted it’s more red meat than she could ever dream of shoveling to her supporters in 280-character increments on Twitter. But one particular line in Boebert’s high-dudgeon low-syllable column titled “If I were a Democrat” has prompted some amount of bemused discussion:

If I were a Democrat, I’d flood the voter pool. I’d require all states to allow same-day voter registration. I’d mandate states automatically register felons, illegal aliens, and 16-year-olds to vote, and I’d require prisons, welfare offices, and ICE to provide their voter registration information.

I’d also use taxpayer dollars to establish aggressive voter recruitment programs at leftist training camps — otherwise known as colleges and universities.

It’s a mess of factually unhinged prattle that should make even Glenn Beck blush, but it’s particularly interesting to see Boebert slamming colleges and universities indiscriminately as “leftist training camps.” Even in a hinterland district like Colorado’s CD-3, think of all the institutions Boebert is charged with representing she just disparaged:

Adams State University
Colorado Mesa University
Colorado Mountain College
Colorado Northwestern Community College
Colorado State University – Pueblo
Fort Lewis College
Pueblo Community College
Western Colorado University

Colorado Mesa University in particular is notable since it’s currently run by President Tim Foster, who is retiring later this year and may be considering a primary challenge against Boebert. But seriously, folks–is there anyone out there who really thinks Rangely or Alamosa are home to “leftist training camps?” Granted, the jury is still out about those hippies in Gunnison, and a century ago she may have had a point about Pueblo.

We’re joking, of course. We only wish Lauren Boebert was joking too.

    "a century ago she may have had a point about Pueblo"
    It was those damn Wobblies.

  3. seriously, why does this matter?  Let's not talk about her.  Let's not create another Donald Trump.

    She has no idea what this type of statement says about her. She thinks that felons, teenagers, college students and graduates, and non-citizens (?) vote for Democrats. So, if she were a Democrat, she would use taxpayer funds to mandate the voter registration of these classes of people.

    It is basically the same strategy that she (and her tribe) use to justify making it as difficult as possible for these classes of individuals (and minorities), to vote. Republicans do not care about the right to vote and are actively hostile to citizens voting. As a Republican, she will do whatever she can to suppress the vote. Given that perspective, she imagines (projects) that Democrats are just as morally corrupt as she is. Her accusations expose her own moral rot.

    Wish we had a time machine to send this sad fool back to the Third Reich where she belongs.

    High school too.

    The only safe way is high school equivalency test. Did she pass?

    What does Rep. Boebert's screed even mean?  "I’d require prisons, welfare offices, and ICE to provide their voter registration information."

    Prisons, welfare offices and ICE do not have voter registration information.  I don't know of any state which allows convicted offenders in prisons to vote.  "Welfare offices" may offer a chance to register, as every federal program of "welfare" I know of insists on servicing citizens only,  but they do NOT have voter information.  If ICE has control of someone with voting rights, they are doing something very, VERY wrong.

      Registering at the welfare local Farm Services Agency office?  Hmm. Interesting thought.   I wonder if PewPew has any angst that half of the $28 billion in CFAP dollars (farmer welfare to counter Ttumpy’s disastrous trade war with China) went to the top 5% of producers?  In Colorado the two top-tier counties for this government largesse (dark blue) were Weld and Yuma County.
