Boebert Using Boulder Massacre As Fundraising Pitch
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) is “a soulless ghoul,” has “no morals, no remorse, no scruples” and is “filled to the brim with selfishness and greed.” And those are just the comments we can print here that blasted the gun-loving congressional freshman for sending out a fundraising email just two hours after the murder of 10 people at the grocery store in her own state.
Shortly after news broke of the mass shooting by a 21-year-old with a semi-automatic rifle, Boebert tweeted out the expected GOP response of thoughts and prayers. “As we continue to hear the news coming out of Boulder, I’m praying for the police, first responders, and those affected by this tragedy. May God be with us as we make sense of this senseless violence, and may we unify and not divide during this time.”

Within minutes she also sent out a fundraising email in which she herself seeks to divide people into pro and anti Second Amendment camps. With the subject line “I told Beto “HELL NO” to taking our guns. Now we need to tell Joe Biden,” the money-beg begins, “Fellow Patriot, While the Media with the help of Big Tech pretends that Joe Biden is a ‘moderate,’ AOC, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer are filing their radical army into a Trojan Horse to attack our freedoms. Next: Our Second Amendment.”
“Will you please help me send them a message by pitching in $10?”
