It has been said that “people in glass houses should not throw stones,” a phrase which here means that you should not criticize others for the bad qualities of character that you have yourself.
If you’re Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert – who has come under scrutiny for the role she potentially played in the Jan.6 uprising – then you should probably take this sentence to heart. ..or at least don’t post bible verses that turn the social media community against you.
But that’s exactly what happened after Boebert published a Bible verse on “secrets.”
Yesterday Boebert published the following verse from Luke 8:17:
“For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, and nothing hidden that will not be known and brought to light. “
The irony here is that Boebert has a lot of secrets – or things that aren’t so secret anymore – to her.
The extent of Boebert’s alleged involvement in the Jan.6 uprising – which took place when a host of supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the United States Capitol on the false premise that the 2020 election had been stolen – appeared to become clearer following an explosive report from Rolling stone.
Sunday October 24, Rolling stone published an article indicating that several supporters of former President Trump who helped plan the insurgency had several planning sessions with senior White House officials and Republican members of Congress.
Sources who spoke to the magazine said they met with several high-profile Trump sidekicks, including Reps Paul Gosar (Arizona), Marjorie Taylor Greene (Georgia), Madison Cawthorn (North Carolina) and Boebert herself.
Organizers claim that Gosar promised “general pardons” to all who participated in the attack, adding that they “would speak to Boebert’s team, Cawthorn’s team, Gosar’s team as back to back”.
Social media users immediately accused Boebert of deafness and hypocrisy.
Boebert was one of the Republican members of the House of Representatives to vote against the creation of an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate the events of January 6.
The measure was approved 252-175 in the Democratic-controlled House over objections from Republicans and former President Trump.
In August, the investigating House Select Committee said it would ask carriers to keep phone records of lawmakers who participated in the “Stop the Steal” rally ahead of the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.
Boebert is one of many Republicans whose phone records have come under scrutiny.
Another is Boebert’s ally, Marjorie Taylor Greene, who quickly threatens to “shut down” all telecommunications companies that comply with the request. Both lawmakers have suggested the demand is little more than a political ploy to hurt Republicans in the next election.
