This troglodyte along with about 10 other GQP'ers should be removed from Congress ASAP.

"She is just a reflection of her supporters."

Yeah...and that, too.

With the people who are the public face of christianity in this country, it is no wonder that the so many of the younger generations want nothing to do with that apparently vile religion. The voices for good rarely make the news.

Reading through what transpired Boebert was right to apologize.

Having said that, let's not paint Omar as some kind of victim - she and her squad allies have said worse about their political adversaries, without apology.

People just need to thicken their skins and not over-react to this crap, regardless of where it comes from.

I think it would be healthy to stick Boebert and MT Greene in a room with the squad members and just talk some things out, as adults.

The squad can't educate the uneducable.

The Squad is profoundly ignorant and hypocritical.

Regarding Boebert and her stunning lack of intellectual depth, Mark ----- said it best:

"Often a hen who has laid an egg cackles as if she had laid an asteroid."

What did they say that was as egregious as this? If you are going to go with the what aboutism then give an example. I don't recall them saying things that could get a person hurt or killed.

Examples, please.

Or are you just a liar?

No, he's just a ----------- who deflects and distorts because he wants to defend, but just lacks the balls to outright say what he feels.

So no examples, nothing to back up what was asserted by Bellringer?
So #6 was nothing but bulls**t lashing out because his 'side' got caught (again).

Boebert apologized. Something put the fear of God into her. Can't imagine she did so voluntarily. Not part of Trumpite culture.

Here's just a couple of examples of bigotry condoned by the Squawd. You can find many more if you just search for them:

Jewish leaders accused Tlaib of using antisemitic tropes to hint at a Jewish cabal controlling the world from behind the scenes.

The head of the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Greenblatt, tweeted: "Stunning to hear @RashidaTlaib claim 'behind the curtain,' those who prevent a 'free Palestine' are the 'same people' who exploit 'regular Americans.' We've heard this kind of ugly #antisemitic dog whistling before, but it's appalling when it comes from a member of Congress."

The Black Republican whose interracial marriage was slammed in a rant by an Ayanna Pressley supporter says she's still looking for an apology from the congresswoman " but hasn't gotten much yet.

"I haven't heard a single world from the Pressley campaign," Rayla Campbell said Wednesday. "You need to stand up because this is racism at its core " bigotry at its core."

In a video that went viral over the weekend, Roxbury community activist Monica Cannon-Grant repeatedly called Campbell a "heifer" and made frequent crude references to Campbell's white husband.

I do love citing the yelping dogs as proof of them being targeted. There's a certain irony in that.

#20 | Posted by YAV at 2021-11-27 01:15 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 2

#19 Christ, you are an idiot. There ARE rich Jews in America, such as Sheldon Adlebrain, who quietly spend their money on candidates and issues opposed to a Palestinian state. That was the truth, and stating the fact is not antisemitic. And why should Representative Pressley apologize for something one of her "supporters" said? Unlike with traitor Boobert, the words NEVER CAME FROM PRESSLEY OR HER CAMPAIGN.

LOL!!!

No.

You can't.

And the best you could find was pathetic.

How is this different than you Trumpers claiming the Deep State is running things here in America?

By the way. You're aware Tlaib is of Palestinian descent, therefore, she might be a bit more critical of the Israelis.

The rich, in both nations exploit regular Americans and the Palestinians.

Where do you see any mention of Jews? Unless you're of the opinion the Jews exploit regular Americans.

Which. Who knows with you.

Let me understand this.

You want Ayanna Pressley to apologize for every stupid thing a "supporter" has said?

Why would you expect her to do so? Because she's a black woman?

I know you don't expect Trump to apologize for everything his supporters say. Is it because he's a white male?

SS,

Those were the best examples you could find?

One has more opinion than actual facts and the other tries to hold someone responsible for the actions of a complete stranger.

You're an idiot.

I'm tired of all these evil men screwing up the world.

What we really need is for women to step up and be given power so they can fix all the horrible problems created by the genetically inferior male gender...

BellRinger can't prove anything. He's a liar.

SSentinel tried his best with #19.

Which has gotten him laughed off the thread.

I'm really surprised. I mistook Colorado as some sort of a 3rd or 4th California. What the hell was I thinking?

Good to have it clearly defined.

I cancelled my subscription to the resurrection many years ago. I found the original documents for my Conformation in the WI Lutheran Church and my Baptismal Certificate from United Church of Christ. I shredded them both, thus officially ending my links to Xtianity. My wife is a direct descendant of South Milwaukee German Freethinkers, and both of my daughters are unchurched.

Some dude paid for me to have a free lifetime membership a couple thousand years ago so I'm not going to cancel my susbsription.
