[COMMENTARY] Boebert Threatens to Sue Comedian Over Parody Website
For someone who claims to love the Second Amendment as much as she does, Lauren Boebert is now apparently trying to bend the First one to her will. Squeaky can apparently dish it out all she wants on her Twitter, where she’s constantly harassing President Joe Biden and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the daily, but she can’t seem to take it anywhere in return. In fact, your writer was until recently blocked by Boebert from her personal account, and only after a threat of a lawsuit and an aggressive Twitter campaign, she unblocked me. While I’m fairly certain I’m muted, it does give me a special thrill to know that I made Squeaky Big Mad.
Someone else has now gotten under Bobo’s holster, and she’s so literally triggered that she’s demanding a comedian “cease and desist” making fun of her on the internet. Which isn’t how the internet works at all, but you have to cut Boebert all of the slack when you consider it took her three tries to pass the GED, the third attempt miraculously sealing the deal while she was campaigning for her House seat in 2020.
This is Jake Settle. Jake is the Press Secretary for @laurenboebert. Lauren told Jake to use his government email to send me a cease and desist order to take down my website, https://t.co/zjr5H9soIR. Jake is not a lawyer. Jake is an idiot. pic.twitter.com/mP6nEJfLF1

Everything Toby Morton tweets or internets about Lauren Boebert is protected as parody speech by the First Amendment. It’s possible somebody has already told her this, but she’s not a very good listener, as Morton learned when he confronted her in person. The video he posted caused “#KarenBoebert” to trend, which made for a fun day on Twitter.
With permission from the restaurant across from Shooter’s Grill, we began filming interviews and exterior footage for my website, https://t.co/zjr5H9soIR. After @LaurenBoebert began yelling at us from across the street, we decided to pack up. She then followed us to our car… pic.twitter.com/jPtkkmPMEH

Breaking: We have discovered what appears to be a burner account being used by Lauren Boebert. Here is a video from Boebert’s phone of @tobymorton’s cameraman who was filming outside of her restaurant in Colorado. https://t.co/ozhFUvOgYj

So now Bobo’s got it in for Toby. Boebert’s office has previously sent “cease and desist” notices to Morton and claimed that the photos on his website are copyrighted “despite the fact that they are public-domain photos made available by the U.S. government. There isn’t one person in her life that has an IQ in the triple digits, bless their little seditious hearts.

Toby Morton has no plans to remove the site because the First Amendment says he doesn’t have to. “I never set out to make a difference with my websites,” Toby told me. “My whole goal has been just to fuck with them and maybe get some laughs. Lauren started this though and now, thanks to her, I’m going all-in including creating a documentary about what a mess she is. So, we’ll see how it goes.”
That means this story will keep going, and it will be a pleasure to keep updating.
