Boebert Campaign Video Shows Racist Stance On Native Americans Despite Being On Indigineous Peoples Subcommittee

Rep. Lauren Boebert (Q-CO) thrives on the attention she receives from all of the big bad boys in Congress for acting just like them. The MAGA Mean Girl is currently enjoying being at the center of a controversy she manufactured with anti-Muslim rhetoric against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), but there’s plenty more racism where that came from with “Klannie Oakley.” Several videos have surfaced of Boebert talking about Omar at events with her supporters, making tasteless jokes about Omar being a terrorist, and calling her “evil” and “black-hearted.” Boebert also referred to Omar and other Congresswomen of color as the “Jihad Squad.”

Boebert is now in danger of losing her committee assignments as a result of those comments. She currently sits on the Budget Committee, the Committee on Natural Resources, and its subcommittees on water and on Indigenous Peoples. That last one might be the most ironic, considering her headlining appearance at a Columbus Day celebration in her home district drew protests. But it gets even worse when you watch an incredibly racist performance from Boebert during her campaign.

Our friend Patriot Takes unearthed an old video from Boebert’s campaigning days where she refers to Native Americans as “Indians” and takes a firm stance against reservations, despite running to represent a district where three reservations are located. Not exactly how you’re supposed to win over an important voting base, but maybe she was too busy studying for her fourth G.E.D. test at the time or something.

So, how did Boebert end up on a subcommittee intended to help Indigenous Peoples? Since Members request their committee assignments, it’s possible she asked to be put on the committees where she could do the most harm, because she doesn’t seem to do anything else.

Speaker Pelosi has indicated she’ll be making a decision regarding the resolution to remove Boebert from her committee assignments. With this new revelation, maybe that will help the Speaker make up her mind.
