Boebert in that one speech said several offensive things that would normally be completely out of bounds for a member of the House:
  • Joe Biden was "this piece of crap in the White House."
  • Ilhan Omar was part of the "jihad squad."
  • The elevator / backpack story (which could get any one of us regular citizens detained in an airport or government building)
  • Pete Buttigieg was trying to "chestfeed" his twins.
  • “God bless Kyle Rittenhouse.”
  • Black Lives Matter are "domestic terrorists."

I fear that our society is losing tact.
