With the latest spat of mass shootings and deaths you would think that there would be some sort of moratorium on stupid statements out of some sort of respect for the dead….if you did think that then you are mistaken.
Over the weekend a couple of idiot women made some doozys of moronic statements…..
First an elected official from Colorado, Rep, Boebert……

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) joked this weekend about Jesus Christ using an AR-15 assault weapon to defend himself rather than face the Crucifixion.
Appearing at an event in Colorado Springs organized by the Charis Christian Center, Boebert said that “Twitter trolls” often challenge her about the contradiction between Jesus’ well-documented pacifism and her own support for gun rights.
“They like to say: ‘Oh, Jesus didn’t need an AR-15. How many AR-15s do you think Jesus would have had?’” she said, to laughter in the crowd. “Well, he didn’t have enough to keep his government from killing him.”
Apparently not only is she ignorant on government, the Constitution but her ignorance also extends into religious teachings.
She definitely proves that you ‘can’t fix stupid’.
Next is a ‘Moms For Liberty’ that thinks librarians should be shot……
Melissa “Missy” Bosch is a mom for liberty. In fact, she is such a mom for liberty that she is the head of communications for a group calling themselves Moms for Liberty. As such, she would like to ban a whole lot of books from the library. Specifically books about Martin Luther King Jr., Native Americans, and LGBTQ people. What says liberty more than a good old fashioned book burning?
But books are not the only thing Bosch wants to destroy! In leaked audio of a recent Moms For Liberty meeting in Lonoke County, Arkansas, Bosch is heard complaining about a school librarian she felt did not offer her enough deference when she came in to complain about books. “I’m telling you, if I was — any mental issues, they would all be plowed down with a freaking gun by now,” Bosch said, before describing herself as a patient person.
Bosch was particularly outraged that this librarian was paid $85,000 a year and was not interested in answering her questions on “the policy” for allowing books into the library.
After this, she and her cohorts had a good laugh about the hypothetical unfairness of the fact that if she, a conservative Republican, were to have “one moment of weakness where you flip” and say “the F word” or perhaps innocently gun down a school librarian, no one would ever let them live it down.
There is also some video available of this particular meeting, in which you can hear one of them clearly say, “I shouldn’t be telling you this, but she advocates dirty books. Chaucer! Rabelais! BALZAC!” before accusing the librarian of making brazen overtures towards “Old Meiser Madison.”
Apparently ‘Moms For Liberty’ do not believe you have the right to choose what you read….so much for the freedom of choice.
Another example of you ‘can’t fix stupid’…..
