    If Boebert goes down for being a bit of a slag instead of for being a fascist I won’t be surprised at America, but I will be disappointed yet again.

    Stop slutshaming fascists and just throw bricks at them, that’s all I want, why is this so hard :(

      Forcing other people who didn’t consent to watch your public handjob isn’t a slut thing, sluts love consent. Fascists, however, don’t value consent, and we hate that about them

      Mmmm I agree in principal, but you need to keep in mind that the ones who elected her into office are also fascists, or at least fascism supporters. They don’t care that she’s a fascist. But they claim to care about actions like the ones that took place there.

      The only way she’s losing support from her constituents is for the non-fascist things she does.

    Beetlebert is such a joke. She was a joke even before her vaping gropefest at Beetlejuice. Anyway, it would be fantastic if Empty G were to be caught in something similarly embarrassing.

    Its very funny and she deserves to have her cringe habits paraded around in front of the general public.

    But its fucking crazy she is a sitting Congresswoman to begin with. Sort of sad that this needs to be the nail in her coffin and not her atrocious politics or her abysmal non-jerk-off-in-movie-theaters behaviors.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    Colorado Republican Rep Lauren Boebert’s Democratic rival posted a hilarious new ad speaking from the lawmaker’s seat during her scandalous Beetlejuice outing last fall.

    Democratic Congressional hopeful John Padora sat in a maroon movie theater chair, saying in his new ad: “I’m sitting in the very same seat Lauren Boebert got kicked out of.

    The switch came after a series of embarrassing public incidents and a narrow victory over a Democrat competitor in her home district in 2022.

    “Boebert’s an opportunistic carpetbagger and we deserve real leadership here in Colorado’s 4th,” he said, before asking supporters for donations.

    Padora’s ad, released days before the Colorado primary races on June 25, highlights how the Beetlejuice incident still plagues the embattled GOP incumbent.

    In May, Boebert was welcomed by chants of “Beetlejuice” when she visited George Washington University’s campus amid pro-Gaza protests.

    I loathe that woman, but I watched the video when it came out. Nothing but some teenage tickling going on. Inappropriate? You fuckin’ a it was for a Congresswoman. But it wasn’t really a thing otherwise. And it was in the dark, only caught on infrared.

    Did anyone expect upright, moral, Victorian behavior from this woman?!

    Lemmy: She was jacking him off while he raw dogged her!

      It’s less about what was done than the hypocrisy. Especially the hypocrisy of doing it while kids were around. Hell, I expect the hypocrisy out of her but that doesn’t mean I’m going to ignore it.

      It’s the same reason we talk shit about all the Republicans that get caught doing gay shit. I don’t care if someone enjoys doing gay shit. Good for them. But if you’ve voted for laws that harm the LGBTQ+ community and get caught sucking dick in an airport bathroom then I’m going to make fun of you.

          She was groping him over the clothes, not stroking him off. And there weren’t any kids in that audience. Or at least, none that were caught on camera.

          She embarrasses herself enough without having to completely make up details.

              I’m assuming you meant the young girl at about the 17 second mark.

              Wherever she ended up, she did not sit behind Bobo:

              And when you make an accusation that she was stroking him off when in reality she copped a quick feel over his pants, whether his dick was out absolutely does make a huge difference. Her behavior was wholly inappropriate, especially considering she’s an adult and a Congresswoman, but she didn’t do anything that thousands of teenagers don’t do regularly when on a date in a dark theater. Let’s not make it out to be worse than it really was just because the person involved is unpopular.

      You’re talking about the security tapes of Boebert getting her tits fondled and her had down a man’s pants at a kids show?

      Not to mention the vaping, the dancing, the flash photography, and generally being a shit bag human (“don’t you know who I am”)

        Nitpick: They groped each other over the clothes. She didn’t have her hand down his pants. She makes herself out to be a shitbag of a person without people needing to make up details that didn’t happen.

      Irony is trying to hold Lemmy posters accountable for exaggeration while exaggerating yourself.

      Nowhere do I see any accusation that Boebert was having any form of sex in the theatre. We call it as we see it – she was groping her date while he groped her, in a theatre with kids in it, during a family presentation, after accusing gays of immoral behaviour. We’re not calling her out for her inappropriate behaviour. We’re calling her out for her hypocrisy of calling others out for their inappropriate behaviour.

      What you’re doing here is concern trolling. We hear your concerns. We are not doing what you’re accusing us of doing. You’re attempting to distract the conversation from the fact that Boebert got felt up during a family event while calling out LGBTQ+ folks for ‘sexual deviancy’. We’re not having it. Piss off with that nonsense.
