Republicans Start Turning On Marjorie Taylor Greene


Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is facing a growing number of critics from within the Republican party over controversial words and actions she engaged in prior to becoming a congresswoman.

No top Republicans, however, have thus far called for Greene to be punished either with expulsion or censure, nor have they stated she should resign.

CNN reported that in 2019 Greene ‘liked’ controversial comments on social media, including one that said “a bullet to the head would be quicker” in a discussion to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Following that report, a video re-emerged showing Greene harassing anti-gun zealot David Hogg near the Capitol.

Republicans Turn Their Back on Marjorie Taylor Greene

Some Republicans have voiced their concerns over Marjorie Taylor Green’s past which dabbled in Qanon conspiracy theories, liking violent comments, and harassing political opponents.

Michele Exner, a spokesperson for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, indicated he would be having a “conversation” with Greene over these comments and actions.

Exner also called the reports on Greene “deeply disturbing.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) described the comments as “repugnant” in a statement to CNN, while Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) condemned them in a statement.

Democrats Refuse to Condemn Their Own Extreme Rhetoric

The timing of the media attacks against Marjorie Taylor Greene can hardly be ignored.

Last week, on President Joe Biden’s first full day in office, Greene officially filed articles of impeachment in the House of Representatives, as she promised she would.

“President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency,” she said in a statement. “His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama’s Vice President is lengthy and disturbing.”

None of her accusations are untrue, so the media has instead pivoted to dredging up past controversial statements.

All the while, they allow current extremist rhetoric from Democrats to poison the political well.

Greene liking a comment about using a “bullet” to remove Pelosi from office is indeed reprehensible.

So is accusing Republicans of being the “enemy within,” asserting that Democrat lawmakers are fearful of that “enemy,” as Pelosi herself said.

Or, as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) did, inciting violence against Republicans by accusing them of attempted murder.

Or, when Maxine Waters (D-CA) told her followers to accost Republicans at the grocery store.

Or, when Cory Booker (D-NJ) told supporters that they need to “get up in the face” of some members of Congress.

No, those calls to violence are perfectly fine. Democrats will always rally around their own no matter how despicable their past comments or behavior.

Republicans will all-too-willingly throw Marjorie Taylor Greene to the wolves.
