Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) tore into Democrats’ attempts to censure Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) over an Attack on Titan anime meme parody video that triggered them, pointing out the numerous instances of actual indiscretion and incompetence linked to high ranking House Democrats.
“Their policies are so pathetic and have done so poorly the left has nothing better than troll the internet looking for ways to get offended and then target members and try to strip them of their committees,’ Boebert said. “this is a dumb waste of the House’s time.”
Boebert continued, “But since the Speaker designated the floor to discuss members’ inappropriate actions, shall we? The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid her husband – and not her brother husband, the other one – over a million dollars in campaign funds. This member is allowed to be on the Foreign Affiars Committee while praising terrorists.”
“A Democrat chairwoman incited further violence in the streets outside of a courthouse,” Boebert said. “And then the cherry on top: my colleague and 3-month Presidential candidate from California who is on the Intelligence Committee slept with Fang Fang, a Chinese Spy! Let me say that again, a member of Congress who receives classified breifings was sleeping with the enemy, this is unacceptable.”

Gosar has slammed the Democrats for being triggered by an anime meme video:
“It is a meme – a meme apparently many don’t understand, and to be honest, I have to be debriefed by my young staff on the meaning of some memes. My staff is creative, talented and passionate. They are not dangerous. They are not violent. They do not incite violence or glorify violence. It is a cartoon intended to be entertaining while making a point that the open borders our country suffers is an evil that plagues the land.
I do not think anyone reasonably thinks it promotes violence. Any more than one could assert that Tom and Jerry promote violence between cats and mice. Or that Peter Griffin actually fought a chicken. Or that Elmer Fudd truly hates rabbits. Or that Rick and Morty actually engage in combat with various space monsters. These are all fictitious works of fantasy. They work on a variety of levels of literary themes and entertainment.”
