Just a day after the White House unveiled a national strategy to counter hate and antisemitism, Lauren Boebert tweeted that the effort was meant to victimize conservatives.
Boebert’s despicable comments not only highlight her ignorance and penchant for controversy, but also her failure to recognize the ongoing threat of antisemitism in America.
In 2022 alone, the Anti-Defamation League tabulated 3,697 antisemitic incidents throughout the United States – a 36% increase from the year before.
DCCC Spokesperson Courtney Rice:
“Comments like these from Lauren Boebert are not only ignorant, they’re dangerous. Every one of her House Republican colleagues should denounce these harmful comments that are meant to appeal to the fringes of our politics immediately.”
REMINDER: This is far from the first time that Boebert has espoused antisemitic beliefs. She previously questioned whether Jewish visitors to the U.S. Capitol were there for “reconnaissance,” and even compared vaccination efforts to Nazi Germany, calling public health officials “Needle Nazis.”
