Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of “ignoring intel” and failing to secure the Capitol on January 6, the day a mob of former President Donald Trump‘s supporters stormed the building in a bid to overturn the results of the 2020 general election.
Republicans today have a proclivity for unashamedly comparing anything that inconveniences them to Nazi Germany. The most obvious example of this phenomenon is Marjorie Taylor Greene.
The Georgia congressman likened COVID-19 restrictions to the treatment of German Jews in the 1930’s. When she had the opportunity to walk her comments back, she doubled down. Eventually she visited a Holocaust Museum and apologized for her words.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) claimed, without offering evidence or offering solutions, that “Democrat policies” are responsible for an increased crime rate in Georgia.
“In the first six months of this year, homicides are up 50% and shootings are up 40% in the Democrat-run City of Atlanta,” she claimed, adding that “Democrat policies make Georgians less safe!”
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has rejected the conspiracy theory that former President Donald Trump will be reinstated to the White House in August.
“I want people to be careful in what they believe,” Greene told viewers during an appearance on “War Room: Pandemic,” a program hosted by Steve Bannon, Trump’s former chief strategist.
There isn’t much Marjorie Taylor Greene won’t believe. The nation’s first QAnon congresswoman has bought into everything from Hillary Clinton being a pedophile to Jewish space lasers.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki told CNN that the Biden administration does not “take any of our health and medical advice from Marjorie Taylor Greene” after Greene compared a push by President Joe Biden to ensure as many Americans are vaccinated against the coronavirus as possible to the people who helped Adolf Hitler rise to power in Nazi Germany.
Marjorie Taylor Greene had actually gone a few weeks without any kind of major controversy. And for the embattled Georgia congresswoman, that seemed to be too long.
During an appearance on Steve Bannon’s show on Thursday, Taylor Greene went on an extended and bigoted attack on transgender Americans warning them to stay out of prisons and rape crisis centers.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) lashed out at Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms after Bottoms blamed the increase of crime in her city on the Georgia Republican Party’s easing of Covid-19 restrictions and easy access to firearms.
For a freshman congressperson, Marjorie Taylor-Greene is in the news an awful lot. Then again, she likes it that way. The Georgia Rep. specializes in making offensive and ignorant statements.
Last month, Greene used incredibly toxic rhetoric to decry mask restrictions in the House of Representatives, comparing the policy to the treatment of Jews during the Holocaust. And when she had the chance to apologize for her comments, she instead decided to double down.

Back in late March, Axios published a story about Matt Gaetz retiring from congress and working in Conservative media. The story seemed odd at the time. The Florida Rep. was seemingly on the rise in the party.
A petition to expel Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) from Congress has already garnered more than 200,000 signatures––209,142 people have signed the petition as of this writing.
The petition, started by David Weissman, is directed at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) amid the controversy surrounding Greene’s remarks comparing Covid-19 rules on the House floor to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is about as toxic as a politician could get right now. She has already been removed from her committee assignments because of past controversial comments.
She recently doubled down on comparing mask wearing to the holocaust. That led to widespread condemnation, even from those within her own party. She, however, has not been chastened by the criticism. In fact, Taylor Greene said during a recent podcast appearance that she’d done nothing wrong.
Marjorie Taylor Greene seems to step in a different controversy each week. But the last week has been particularly galling for the Georgia Republican. After being roundly criticized for comparing mask wearing to the Holocaust, she doubled down on those comments on Tuesday.
Donald Trump may have become the president in 2016, but he wasn’t an overwhelming choice. In fact, more than half of the people that voted cast a ballot for his opponent.
Still, once Trump took office, the GOP declared that they had a clear mandate. And any Democrat who opposed their ideas was a “snowflake.”

For the last 5 years, Donald Trump and his enablers have done everything to shield Trump from any consequence for his actions. But now that Democrats are in charge of the White House, House and Senate, their ability to do so is slowly fading.
Meghan McCain criticized Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for “behaving like an animal” after video footage surfaced showing Greene harassing Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and later taunting Ocasio-Cortez’s staff members through the mailbox, mocking them for keeping the door locked.
