If you’ve ever wondered why Rep.
Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is such a complete horse’s ass, one of her colleagues in the House says you’d be wrong to think the Georgia Republican is stupid.
Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), the House Majority Whip,
said Saturday during an appearance on CNN that Greene’s real motives for what she says and does are much more troubling.
Clyburn was asked by CNN host Jim Acosta:
“Congressman, I have to ask you about this crazy conspiracy theory that is gaining some serious momentum, alleging that the FBI orchestrated the January 6th attack on the Capitol. What do you say to some of your Republican colleagues, people like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar (R-AZ), they’re the ones that are spreading this craziness.”
“We have a responsible of debunking this foolishness. Nobody believes that, they don’t believe that. They just feel that this is one way to rile people up.”
Acosta then noted:
“I believe some people do believe it, congressman, candidly and respectfully, sir, I do think some of them believe it.”
“Well, I respect your position on that, but I’ve been in this country a long time — next month I’m going to celebrate my 81st birthday — and I can tell you, they really don’t believe it. They think it’s a tool they can use to separate people. They know better than that.
“Marjorie Greene, whatever he name is, she really does not believe that stuff she’s saying. She is saying the stuff she thinks will rile people up, because they really would love to see this country, the people, turn against each other,”
Exactly! It’s all about dividing and conquering. That’s the very same strategy failed, one-term former President Donald Trump used to win in 2016. But the American people got sick and tired of his bullying and hatred. Hopefully voters in Greene’s district will follow suit and give her the boot in next year’s midterms.
