Boebert is a Hero!
Lets remember how she got her start after all. Look at this old headline from the New York Times:
Lauren Boebert, Gun-Rights Activist, Upsets House G.O.P. Incumbent in Colorado
The political novice, who has defied pandemic restrictions to keep her restaurant open and has spoken approvingly of the QAnon conspiracy theory, challenged Scott Tipton on his conservative credentials.
Lauren Boebert is the owner of Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colo., where she encourages employees to openly carry guns
Lauren Boebert, a political novice and gun-rights activist who has spoken approvingly of the pro-Trump conspiracy theory QAnon, claimed an upset primary victory on Tuesday night against Representative Scott Tipton of Colorado, unseating a five-term incumbent endorsed by President Trump.
Ms. Boebert, 33, is the owner of Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colo., and has gained attention in recent days for defying pandemic restrictions by keeping her restaurant open. She previously grabbed headlines for confronting a former Democratic presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke, over his pledge during an appearance in the state to seize assault rifles.
“I am here to say: Hell, no, you’re not,” Ms. Boebert, who encourages employees in her restaurant to openly carry guns, told him during a town-hall meeting in Aurora. Gun rights have been at the center of the state’s political clashes for years after new restrictions imposed after mass shootings.
More recently, Ms. Boebert defied state orders against opening her restaurant until the Garfield County sheriff obtained a cease-and-desist order against her.
During the campaign, she argued that Mr. Tipton voted too often with Democrats and was insufficiently conservative for Colorado’s Third Congressional District, a huge area extending from Pueblo in the south to Steamboat Springs in the north and to the state’s western border. A sprawling expanse of about 30 counties, it is mainly conservative and rural, though it includes pockets of more Democratic-leaning areas, like Aspen.
That is the story are a patriot and a hero
