Boebert Draws Criticism For Comparing Ukraine to Freedom Convoy
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) drew criticism after comparing Canada’s “Freedom Convoy” to Ukraine.
“I pray for Ukraine, and I wish them the best. They have a great president right now who has really said clearly, ‘Live free or die.’ He said, ‘I don’t need a ride, give me ammunition. The fight is right here,'” Boebert told Fox Nation while attending the Conservative Political Action Conference.
“But we also have neighbors to the north who need freedom and need to be liberated, and we need that right here at home as well.”
A former U.S. ambassador to Canada called the comments “reckless” and “dangerous.”
Anthony Housefather, a Liberal member of the Canadian parliament, told Boebert that “while it’s good that you are not following the Trump line and are standing with Ukraine instead of Putin, it is sad to hear you compare free and democratic Canada to the invasion of Ukraine.”
