In Newly Surfaced Video Marjorie Taylor Greene Once more Assaults David Hogg – This Time as a ‘Very Educated’ Canine

US Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) bullied a private citizen, a gun control activist and a survivor of the shooting at Parkland School Thursday night David Hoggafter calling on Republican minority leader Kevin McCarthy to stand up against her and her QAnon comrade, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

“David, please,” tweeted Boebert. “We all saw how tough you were when you were interviewed face to face. Give your keyboard a break, kid. “

An attack by a seated member of Congress against a private individual would have been unknown just a few years ago, but members of the QAnon and MAGA cults have dispensed with social norms and see it as beneficial to pursue a 20-year-old brand.

Hogg was on the news this week after the video of being molested and bullied by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene when he was only 18 or 19 years old went viral. In this video, which Greene recorded and posted on her YouTube channel, she shows Hogg out loud, “I carry a gun for protection.” Hogg saw his classmates murdered when a gunman terrorized his Florida high school, massacring 17 people.

This is the tweet that Rep. Boebert had to respond to:

You can put up any fences around the capital. The real threats from @mtgreenee and @laurenboebert will remain until @GOPLeader takes a stand.

– David Hogg (He / Him) (@ davidhogg111) January 28, 2021

Hogg later published a fact-based response to the QAnon Congressman.

– Wait for tax money to have a hissing fit because you can’t get a gun into Congress

-The tax dollars attacking students on Twitter

Is there anything you actually do for your constituents other than lose their money?

– David Hogg (He / Him) (@ davidhogg111) January 29, 2021

Unsurprisingly, Boebert was not doing well.

Fred Gutenberg, father of one of the murdered Parkland students, also weighed:

. @ laurenboebert, you wretched, hideous fraud. How dare you. You’re nothing more than a mean person who has no clue about the definition of toughness. You were chosen because of a lie. Carrying a gun and telling everyone what you are doing does not make you harsh but pathetic and weak. Https://

Journalist Ben Jacobs, who was physically assaulted by then-candidate Greg Gianforte, a Republican who ran for Congress and actually won his race in Montana, also weighed:

This is a truly unfathomable public statement for a seated member of Congress to make,

Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, called Boebert a “maniac”.

Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert is as mean as Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Why would a teenage gun violence survivor be “tough” when faced with insane conspiracy theories?

Olivia Troye, former Homeland Security Officer for the Trump Administration, has served as National Security Advisor at the National Counter-Terrorism Center, the Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence, and the Office of Intelligence and Analysis:

This is probably one of the most regrettable moments for a seated elected official on social media. An armed insurgent enabler speaking to a survivor of the school shooting. @Lurenboebert Not today. No way. Step back. #AccountabilityBeforeUnity #Republicans

He had a gunslaughter in his high school, so you’re bullying him

You make his point.

This is what Kevin McCarthy’s cowardice makes possible. The Republican Party is in steady decline.

I just want to remind you because I’m not sure Conservatives remember him getting famous after a man with a gun showed up in his high school and shot 17 of his classmates.

We know who needs to rest and it’s not David. And he’s certainly more mature than ever.

Searching for help. Seriously. Something is deeply wrong with you.

Is there a competition along the GOP newbies to see who of you can be the worst person?
