Lauren Boebert meant to exclude Hawaii and Alaska, America First is Continental Only

Colorado House Representative Lauren Boebert made headlines this past week which is no big surprise to most political junkies.

She tweeted a meme outlining the continental United States as the only place in the whole world that her taxes should go. Many knee jerk reactions believe Boebert was ignorant in leaving out Alaska and Hawaii. Others also mentioned Puerto Rico, Guam and US Virgin Islands.

The "America First" far right movement do not forget these areas, they are deliberately excluded. They know very well that Alaska, Hawaii and the US Territories are not included.

That is their American dream. It is a century old tax plan to fund the continental United States and only the continental United States.

In 2017, Jeff Sessions gave a glimpse into the disassociation the movement has had with Hawaii. Donald Trump signed an executive order widely known as the Muslim Ban. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued a restraining order that forced an appeal. That's when Attorney General Jeff Sessions clutched his pearls.

“I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power.” - Attorney General Jeff Sessions 2017

Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono responded to Sessions when she tweeted "we won’t succumb to your dog whistle politics".

The America First political movement is an "America only" campaign. It is mostly Christian Nationalist that want everyone off their lawn. Over the last century the movement has violently lobbied against immigration, teaching evolution, entering WWII, United Nations and Human Rights. The common people across the United States struggling to pay bills have been micro data targeted, red pilled and suckered into the xenophobic lifestyle.

Lauren Boebert's education is not what attracts the far right to vote and support her. They identify with her lifestyle brand of fascist feminism. The American utopia where being a "true Christian" supersedes degrees.
