Rep. Lauren Boebert Is Torched For Tweeting That Taliban Are 'Building Back Better'
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) Was accused Monday of campaigning for the Taliban after she tweeted that the extremist group that overthrew Afghanistan was "building better".
"The Taliban are the only people who are better off," she tweeted with one blow on President Joe Biden regarding his plan for economic recovery.
Taliban insurgents took control of much of Afghanistan, including Kabul, last week, leading to mass exodus of government officials, US embassy staff and vulnerable Afghans, including journalists, translators and human rights activists.
There are grave concerns that the Taliban will withdraw basic human and democratic rights, especially for women, and oversee a return to the extremist Islamic rule under which Afghans lived from 1996-2001.
Boebert, a key cheerleader for the lies of Donald Trump's 2020 presidential election, has been scrutinized for her role in inspiring the violent uprising spearheaded by his supporters in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Her critics slammed her for the Taliban-friendly joke after she helped fuel a domestic terrorism incident.
They also recirculated a notable tweet from February in which Boebert asked Biden to delay the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan: "We have to end the endless wars," she said at the time.
