Fox News reports:
Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert calls on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to “tear down” security fencing around the Capitol in a new ad. “You protect what you love,” Boebert says in the ad as she walks in front of the Capitol building.
Some commentators criticized the video, noting that Boebert tweeted Pelosi’s whereabouts on Jan. 6 as a violent mob broke into the Capitol. Boebert claimed she was repeating only what people could see on TV.
Others took issue with the gunshot sound effect at the end of the ad as the Colorado congresswoman’s signature appears on the screen.

Why is it OK for Lauren Boebert and major in Taylor Greene to be able to publicly threaten the life of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their Democratic colleagues and not be held responsible?

The sound of a gunshot in Lauren Boebert’s latest video ad should be clear to everyone that Republicans do not want unity with Democrats. For as long as I can remember when I was Conservative, liberal values and Democratic Politicians were considered to be the enemy of America.
