Marjorie Taylor Greene is a brand new congress person from Georgia’s 14th district. This covers most of northwest Georgia. It is a very strong Republican part of the state. Donald Trump got 75 percent of the vote here in 2016.
To say she is nuts is an insult to any tree that produces nuts.
She filed articles of impeachment against President Biden on his first full day in office claiming abuse of power. But even more troubling is her involvement with QAnon, the far-right group that spreads conspiracy theories far and wide Best known is their claim that a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring. .
A number of groups and publications have been going over Greene’s social media footprint with a fine-toothed comb.
Among things they have found:.
She posted a picture on Facebook last year showing her holding an AR-15 next to a collage of pictures of Democrats in Congress and the statement that it was time “for strong conservative Christians to go on the offensive against these socialists who want to rip our country apart.”
According to CNN, she has expressed support for hanging elected officials.
She opposes wearing face masks to slow the spread of Covid-19. She is also opposed to compulsory vaccinations or lockdowns.
Her comments regarding Blacks, Muslims and Jews were denounced by Republican House leaders.
She does not believe an airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11.
She thinks the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School and Stoneman Douglas High School were fake.
Now Congressman Kevin McCarthy, leader of the House Republicans, says he is aware of disturbing comments Greene has made and that he will have a conversation with her. I would like to be a fly on the wall when this happens.
Not only is Marjorie Taylor Greene scary, it is also scary that the good folks of Georgia’s 14 district elected her.
