Republicans are obsessed with the idea of cancel culture. Most of the examples they complain about, however, are just situations where people faced consequences for their actions. Still the issue seems to really resonate with Republican voters.
Lately, right-wingers have been claiming that historical figures have been canceled. Think people like Thomas Jefferson or Robert E. Lee. Lauren Boebert took it to the next level this weekend, though, when the Colorado lawmaker claimed that they tried to cancel Jesus Christ.
During a weekend speech at the Colorado Republican State Assembly, Boebert told a raucous and cheering audience, “They even tried to cancel Jesus. But you can’t cancel God. And the creator of the universe lives on the inside of you.”

This isn’t the first time that Boebert has discussed figures in the Bible being canceled. During a February interview with Newsmax, she whined, “We are in another cycle of cancel culture. But that’s nothing new. Cancel culture has been around since the beginning of time. Cain canceled Abel.”
