Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) wants her party to refuse to fund the federal government and not raise the debt ceiling as a way to prevent every American citizen from becoming a “Chinese slave.”
Greene made her remarks on disgraced former Trump administration official Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, telling him:
Bannon interjected that Democrats now “need the deplorables” to pass a budget for the next fiscal year, which led Greene to say:
Yeah, let’s put out a raging fire by pouring gasoline on it! Great idea, huh? Only if you’re a Republican and don’t give two hoots in hell in what such a move would do to the national and world economy.
Greene’s comments even elicited an unhinged rant from Bannon, who began shouting as he declared:
Bannon is so mentally deranged that he’s mixing his metaphors: Russian serfs and Chinese debt slaves. Makes you wonder if he drinks heavily. God knows he looks like he does.
So the Republican strategy for dealing with keeping the United States on the road to economic recovery goes like this: Refuse to do anything and let the entire world go to hell in a handbasket. Then they can blame Biden and pretend they had nothing to do with it.
Some people just want to watch the world burn. They’re called Republicans.
