Congresswoman-elect Lauren Boebert blasted a new rule proposed by House Democrats.
Boebert tweeted ‘House Dems are now proposing that members will be banned from posting images that have been “altered or distorted.”‘
“So basically they’re cracking down on memes,” she continued”
“With all the problems that we need to fix in this country, it’s astounding Dems find time to worry about this,” Boebert added.
One Twitter user replied “Violation of the 1st Amendment.”
Another replied “it is the next step in silencing dissenters”
Another replied “Control is the name of the game!

Rep. Jim Jordan also blasted the proposal.
New rule proposed by House Democrats:
Members can’t share anything on social media that’s been “distorted or manipulated.”
Who’s making that call? Liberal fact-checkers?
Give me a break.
