Nate Boebert, an American politician in support of family separation on Twitter, now stands accused of hate speech against the Muslim community after his comments came under scrutiny.
Boebert recently released a statement apologizing for his words after an incident in November 2017. Back then, she was asked to leave Chicago’s Governors State University because she spoke out against a policy that separated children from their parents.
In that incident, she called out leftist supporters for their anti-Muslim rhetoric.
“There’s one thing I know for sure, which is, over the past two years, two and a half years, what I’ve seen is just a constant obsession among the Left with the Muslim community.”

It wasn’t the first time that the Republican congressman for South Dakota was taken to task for his tweets.
During the 2018 midterms he wrote a number of tweets – including one that caused a stir. He shared a post by an ISIS member promising to “keep hitting the States of America with violence until they leave us alone.”

Boebert is currently a candidate for Congress but is expected to lose this election.
