U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado responded last to Democrats last Thursday evening who mocked her for having a firearm display, stating she had a “gun fetish” because of fact that there were multiple weapons visible on the shelf behind her during a Zoom call with several other lawmakers.
According to Fox News, Boebert made an appearance on “Fox News @ Night,” in which she called U.S. Rep. Jared Huffman a creep and then stated that his “disdain for the Constitution was on full display.”
“Rather than having a productive debate about policy … Democrats were too busy mocking the Constitution and disrespecting the everyday Americans that I was elected to represent,” Boebert said to Fox News host Mike Emanuel.
“This was my first committee hearing and the chairman couldn’t stop attacking, degrading, and insulting committee members,” she said. “I am busy fighting against the left’s real fetish for power and stripping Americans of their constitutional rights.”
Boebert also took an opportunity to address a post on Twitter from California Democrat Katie Porter, who said, “I always thought my dirty dishes piled up and accumulating bacteria were the most dangerous thing in a Zoom background,” referring of course to the gun display behind the Colorado congresswoman.
“It’s kind of alarming that she has so many dishes in her sink collecting bacteria,” Boebert fired back. “Do your dishes, Hon.”
Boebert went on to explain that she put up the gun display as a response to the House Committee on Natural Resources wanting to put a ban on guns, which, of course, is a violation the Second Amendment of the Constitution.
“If somebody wants to have a shrine to their gun fetish as a Zoom backdrop in their private life they can do that,” Huffman said at one point during the meeting. “But this is our ‘hearing room,’ and at some point we will get past the COVID epidemic, and we’ll all start showing up in person, and our safety and our ability to conduct business civilly without feeling threatened is a relevant consideration, unfortunately.”
“We all took an oath to uphold and secure the Constitution, every single one of us,” Boebert eloquently stated when it was her time to speak. “Our first act as members of Congress was to take our oath of office, and please allow me to remind you a portion of that oath, the chair and every other member here solemnly swore that we would support and defend the Constitution of the United States…The Second Amendment is very much a part of the Constitution of the United States.”
