Greene Has Meltdown Over Rumor Some In GOP Will Vote For Infrastructure Deal: ‘Communist Takeover!’

Even though she serves on no committees and has virtually no power whatsoever in Congress, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is making threats against her Republican colleagues after hearing a rumor that some of them may support the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework.

Taking to Twitter, Greene angrily railed:

And then Greene went on Steve Bannon’s podcast, where she threatened any Republican who votes to repair the country’s crumbling infrastructure with a primary opponent:

“Here’s what I need all of you to do, I need you to get on board with me. I’ve already told almost every single Republican in the GOP conference in the House that I will primary them, and personally spend money against them in their primary, if they vote for the Infrastructure Bill or the $3.5 trillion budget.”

Twitter users couldn’t resist mocking Greene for acting like a pathetic fascist snowflake:

MTG Launches Disgusting Attack On Democratic Colleague And Winds Up Humiliating Herself

A day after she went on an unhinged shouting match at her Democratic colleagues on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) went on Twitter and called a Democratic House member a piece of shit.

That Friday confrontation was filmed by people on the scene and involved Greene and Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI):

Dingell later told USA Today she felt a need to clap back at Greene:

“She was screaming at all my colleagues… I said, ‘Can’t you be civil to your colleagues?’ She was yelling at them… She was trying to be disruptive and rude to all my colleagues. She was trying to bully and disrupt (my) colleagues. We’re already on edge. We can disagree agreeably. She doesn’t have to go and yell and cause a scene at a press conference.”

Rather than engage in a civil debate with Dingell, Greene posted this on Saturday morning:

Be sure and note that Greene referenced her chief of staff. He resigned Friday shortly after his boss had that screaming match with Dingell, according to CBS46:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted Friday that her Chief of Staff, Patrick Parsons, would be resigning to focus on other political ventures.

Rep. Greene’s tweet also included a statement from Parsons, wherein he reflected on his work alongside Greene and what his upcoming plans entail. 

Reaction to Greene’s tasteless attack on Congresswoman Dingell was immediate and resulted in humiliation for the Georgia Republican:

MTG Says People Should Use Their ‘Second Amendment Rights’ If Anyone Asks About Their Vax Status

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) told a meeting of Alabama Republicans recently that if anyone from the government shows up at their door to ask if they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19, they should exercise their “Second Amendment rights” to counter such an query.

According to NBC News, the event, which took place in Dothan, Alabama, was closed to the media, but a video of Greene’s remarks was leaked to the Alabama Political Reporter:

“You lucky people here in Alabama might get a knock on your door, because I hear Alabama might be one of the most unvaccinated states,” Greene told the crowd, prompting cheers and applause over the state’s low vaccination rate. “Well, Joe Biden wants to come talk to you guys. He’s going to be sending one of his police state friends to your front door to knock on the door, take down your name, your address, your family members’ names, your phone numbers, your cellphone numbers, probably ask for your Social Security number and whether you’ve taken the vaccine or not.

“What they don’t know is in the South, we all love our Second Amendment rights, and we’re not real big on strangers showing up on our front door, are we? They might not like the welcome they get.”

Here’s some of the reaction to Greene’s threats:

Asked About Americans Dying Of COVID, Marjorie Taylor Greene Laughs Maniacally

Based on the things she’s said and done since she first announced she would be running for Congress, there are some things we already know about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA):

  • She’s willfully ignorant
  • She’s a shameless self-promoter
  • She has the common sense of wet burlap
  • She’s fond of conspiracy theories

But based on remarks Greene made Tuesday during a press conference held at her office, we can add another fact to what we know about the Georgia congresswoman: She’s a heartless asshole who doesn’t give two hoots in hell about anyone but herself.

It began when Greene told reporters:

“With 6,000 vax related deaths and many concerning side effects reported, the (COVID-19) vax should be a choice not a mandate for everyone.”

Mediate reports that at Greene’s Tuesday presser, Tim Mitchell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution asked her:

“Do you feel any responsibility for keeping people in Georgia safe? There are children, skinny people, who have died of coronavirus. Do you feel any responsibility?”

Greene’s response was to begin laughing. Not just a chuckle, mind you, but a genuine maniacal laugh before she finally managed to reply:

“Gee, you crack me up.

“You know what? I think people’s responsibility is their own to read the information, and it’s everywhere.”

Notice how she didn’t actually answer the question? She has no logical answer or fact to provide, so she resorts to a bullshit response that only serves to prove what a foolish and dangerous person she truly is.

Another reporter asked the congresswoman if she had been vaccinated, and Greene began spouting outright nonsense about how the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) prevented her from saying one way or the other on that query:

“(That) is a violation of my HIPAA rights. You see, with HIPAA rights, we don’t have to reveal our medical records and that also involves our vaccine records.”

Not even a little bit true, as Mediate noted:

“Under HIPAA, healthcare providers may not provide medical information about patients to third parties without patient consent. It does not apply to individuals or entities who aren’t healthcare providers. Moreover, it is not a “violation” of the law to ask someone if they have been vaccinated.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a waste of flesh and oxygen. She’s also a heartless ghoul with blood on her hands.

Marco Rubio Claims Democratic Plans To Expand Voting Rights Are Part Of A ‘Marxist Strategy’

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is terrified of what he’s facing when he runs for reelection next year.

Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) has already announced she will seek the Democratic nomination to face Rubio, along with former Florida governor Charlie Crist, who also currently serves in the House. Bothone poll extremely well when pitted against the incumbent Rubio.

Also, a couple of weeks ago, the Orlando Sentinel excoriated Rubio, writing:

“What’s the point of appealing to someone who swore off another Senate run when he ran for president in 2016, then turned around and ran for the Senate? Someone who negotiated a bipartisan immigration reform bill and then campaigned against it?

“We’ve been waiting a decade for Rubio to do the right thing. But the senator is Lucy with the football, and every Floridian who trusts him is Charlie Brown.”

And now the Florida senator is making it clear that he knows if every registered voter in his state casts a ballot next year, he’s going to lose in a landslide.

Speaking with The Floridian, Rubio was asked about legislation Demings will soon be introducing in the House called the “Every Vote Counts Act.” The legislation would federalize elections and supersede laws that have been passed in dozens of states recently, including in Florida.

But to hear Rubio tell it, the bill is a disaster:

“She’s trying to undo what the Florida legislature passed. These guys don’t want there to be any election laws, she’s part of their national Marxist strategy.”

So making it easier for people to vote and guaranteeing that everyone who is eligible can cast a ballot is now Marxist? Karl Marx wasn’t exactly a fan of elections. If you doubt that, take a look at what happened when Marxism was instituted on a national scale in the Soviet Union.

Demings explained the reason she sees the need for her bill, and it completely destroys Rubio’s angry rantings:

“Let’s not be distracted by politically-motivated lies which seek the undermine faith in our elections. The Department of Homeland Security under President Trump reported that last year’s election was the most secure in our nation’s history. Unfortunately, Republicans in state legislatures across the country are seeking political advantage by attempting to stop certain people from voting. When we take away someone’s vote, we take away their voice.”

Republicans don’t want all Americans to have a voice when it comes to elections. They just want their voters to show up and cast a ballot. See, they know they can’t win elections without cheating, so they try to codify their cheating via legislation that restricts the most fundamental right of any representative democracy.

Marco Rubio is a cancer on the Senate. He needs to be booted from office and also needs to go back and take some lessons in history and political science.
