On November 4, 2020, Lauren Boebert won Colorado’s Third Congressional District against her Democrat opponent Diane Mitsch Bush.
Boebert made waves after pulling off major upset against incumbent Republican congressman Scott Tipton a few months ago by calling him out for expanding mass migration and not being sufficiently pro-gun.
The New York Times provided an overview of what Colorado’s Third Congressional District looks like:
Though Colorado is trending more Democratic, the Third Congressional District covers a huge expanse of the state’s more conservative Western Slope, where progressive upscale ski towns, such as Aspen and Steamboat Springs, are interspersed with conservative ranching and working-class communities such as Pueblo and Grand Junction.
Boebert is part of a growing wing of America First representatives that want to confront the Democrat’s radical wing — The Squad. The congresswoman-elect became a national icon in 2019 after she confronted Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke during his failed presidential run over his support radical gun control. She specifically called him out for his support of banning AR-15s. Boebert bluntly told O’Rourke, “I am here to say, ‘Hell no, you’re not.”
The pro-Second Amendment advocate ended up defeating her opponent by a 51 to 46 margin.
Boebert tweeted in celebration on November 4:
Freedom wins! Thank you so much. This is a great victory for freedom and prosperity. Plus I have the honor of being the first mom to represent CO-03! It doesn’t get better than that. God bless America!

Colorado is becoming a solid blue state, with Democrat candidate Joe Biden defeating Donald Trump by a 56 to 42 percent margin. However, with Boebert in the mix, the state will at least have a loud conservative voice to keep the Left up at night and a figure for conservatives in the state to rally around.
With Boebert in the House, Republicans can now go on offense by promoting pro-Second Amendment legislation and working to gut the unconstitutional federal gun control apparatus.
There’s always a silver lining in defeat.
Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse
At this Time, Conservatives Cannot Afford to be Timid
Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer, posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail.
In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”
This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.
Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”
She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”
The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”
Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”
Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”
At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.
It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
