Marjorie Taylor Greene Humiliates Herself With Hateful, Misspelled Tweet Attacking A GOP Colleague

An attempt by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) to attack a GOP House colleague went hilariously wrong when Greene posted a tweet with a blatant misspelling that wound up leaving her humiliated while simultaneously proving that her command of the English language leaves a lot to be desired.

Greene’s anger was aimed at Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who had criticized Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for a nasty Islamophobic smear she fired at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), according to The Hill:

The controversy between Omar and Boebert began after a video surfaced over the Thanksgiving weekend of Boebert saying that she and a staffer were getting on a Capitol elevator when she saw a Capitol Police officer racing toward them.

She then turned and saw Omar standing nearby. “I said, ‘Well, she doesn’t have a backpack. We should be fine,’ ” Boebert recalled, drawing laughs from the audience. “And I said, ‘Oh, look. The ‘jihad squad’ decided to show up for work today.’”

Omar denied that the encounter ever happened and accused Boebert of inventing a false story to smear her.

That led Rep. Mace to remark on CNN that she condemned Boebert “100 percent.”

Mace’s comments drew Greene’s ire, and she attacked her on Twitter:

Mace was quick to call Greene out for not even knowing how to spell:

Sounds like a civil war is breaking out in the Republican Party. Here’s hoping it escalates and destroys the entire GOP. The country would be better off without them.

Kevin McCarthy Slammed For His ‘Pathetic’ Statement On Boebert’s Islamophobic Comments

 

Earlier this week, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) made a disgusting remark in which she referred to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as a suicide bomber:

Boebert later issued a half-assed apology for her comments which sounded less like contrition than it did a desperate attempt to tamp down controversy:

Despite calls for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to condemn Boebert, he waited over 24 hours before he said anything, finally issuing a tepid statement that read:

“I talked to Congresswoman Lauren Boebert today. She has apologized for what she said and has reached out to Congresswoman Omar to meet next week.

“I spoke with Leader (Steny) Hoyer today to help facilitate that meeting so that Congress can get back to talking to each other and working on the challenges facing the American people.”

Be sure and note that nowhere in that statement did McCarthy criticize Boebert or call her out for her bigotry.

McCarthy’s belated comment was the topic of discussion on MSNBC Saturday, with host Yasmin Vossoughian asking GOP strategist Susan Del Percio if we should “expect more” from the minority leader. Del Percio replied:

“We should expect more from leadership, but Kevin McCarthy has shown no leadership, so I don’t expect more from him because he’s incompetent and is just bound to whatever he thinks — and that’s the key, whatever he thinks — will make Donald Trump happy. So that’s his audience and that’s who he’s playing to. … Kevin McCarthy is trying to maybe look like something — I can’t say like a leader, because he’s just not — and he’s just become pathetic.”

McCarthy is indeed pathetic, and so is the vast majority of the GOP in both the House and Senate. They have no shame and no plan to help the country. Instead, they use hatred, lies, and bigotry to try and pretend they’re more than just a cult masquerading as a political party.

Texas Woman Says She Won’t Let Her Children Wear A Mask Because They’ll ‘Look Like A Muslim’

First we had Donald Trump refusing to wear a protective mask despite the fact that coronavirus was (and still is) causing thousands of infections and deaths across the United States.


And now we have people who have listened to the president and absorbed all sorts of wild conspiracy theories on right-wing websites saying they will endanger the lives of their children and the kids of others because they aren’t going to put a mask on them, even though scientific evidence shows that masks help slow transmission of the disease.

The latest tinfoil hat wearing nutjob to obtain infamy on social media is a mother from Texas, Crystal Pool Latu, who shared her bizarre rantings on a video she posted to Facebook, the Daily Dot reports:

“After repeating a lot of debunked lines about masks “inhibiting health” and claiming that the science on masks is ‘mixed’ (it’s not), and touting an inaccurate recovery rate that still would leave 1.4 million Americans dead, she let her real feelings be known.

“’I understand that it is a 99.6% recovery rate,’ Latu says. ‘I don’t even gamble in Vegas, but I will take these odds. I will roll these dice, and I will exercise my freedoms to not put my kids in a mask because they’re one step closer to looking like a Muslim.'”


And there you have it: The brainwashing has permeated so far into the “minds” of some Americans that they’re willing to take a chance with the lives of their own children (along with yours and mine) to keep them from looking “like a Muslim.”

But there’s a larger issue here, and it’s far beyond the national and governmental response to COVID-19, which has been halfhearted and downright pathetic. The issue is Americans who choose to ignore medical and scientific evidence, which endangers the rest of us. These are some of the same people who don’t believe in vaccinations or fear doctors will insert microchips into their feeble brains so they can monitor their warped brainwaves.


Perhaps the most dangerous trend we’ve seen in the four years Trump has been president is a willingness by some to fight against any suggestion that might make the country better simply because they’re too damn selfish to give a flying fuck about their fellow citizens.

So, Crystal Latu, feel free to refuse masking your children. But keep them the hell away from my family. Come to think of it, you and your entire family should simply stay at home and never wander out. You might infect others with your incredible stupidity.

WATCH: Racist Trumpkin Gets Publicly Shamed For Calling 5-Year-Old Girl A ‘Terrorist’

You’ve probably never heard of John Turano. He’s one of the many Trump-worshiping idiots who prowl the streets of this country and feel they have the right to scream whatever insult comes to mind, even if that invective is hurled at a child.

In the video below, which is going viral, a woman approaches three Trump supporters in Los Angeles and tells them:

“You called my 5-year-old cousin a terrorist.”

The woman, named Rawan, and her cousin, are Palestinian-American. To them, Turano replies:

“Looks like one. It doesn’t matter what age you are.”

Rawan then tells Turano:

“You’re calling a 5-year-old a terrorist.”

Turano’s smug, moronic daughter, Bianca responds:

“But this is America, we can say whatever we want. Freedom of speech.”


Later in the video, John Turano tells the woman and her little cousin to suck his dick as his equally disgusting daughter adds:

“You guys are terrorists, get out of here. If you hate America so much leave.”

A boy with Rawan and her cousin then shouts at Daddy Turano:

“I don’t hate America — I just hate [inaudible] fucks like you!”

Donald Trump has emboldened assholes like John and Bianca Turano. Trump has given them cover to be as offensive as they want because some of the neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville earlier this year are “very fine people,” according to the president.

Trump and many of his supporters are cancers on this country that need to be excised as soon as possible.

Senior White House Adviser: There’s No Such Thing As Right-Wing Terrorists (VIDEO)

Ever since Donald Trump became president, members of his administration have been all over cable news telling us about the tremendous danger posed by Islamic terrorism, both at home and around the world. Granted, it is indeed a problem, but is it the only form of terrorism we have to be on the lookout for in the United States?

According to White House adviser Sebastian Gorka, we have nothing to fear from right-wing acts of terrorism, because right-wing terrorists don’t exist.

During an appearance on MSNBC Tuesday, Gorka said only Muslim extremists had carried out terrorist acts in America, adding:

“There’s no such thing as a lone wolf, you do know that. That was a phrase invented by the last administration to make Americans stupid.”

Whereas Gorka and the White House he works for came to us already stupid.

When host Stephanie Ruhle tried to ask a question, the always rude Gorka interrupted her:

“Let me finish. There never been a serious attack or a serious plot that was unconnected from ISIS or al-Qaeda, at least through the ideology and TTPs, tactics and training and techniques and procedures, that they supply through the internet — never happened, it’s bogus.”

That’s total bullshit. Apparently Gorka has never heard of Oklahoma City, where 168 people–including 19 children– were murdered by right-wing extremist Timothy McVeigh. Or what about Dylann Roof, who gunned down nine people at a Bible study just because they were African-American? Both acts are the very definition of terrorism.

Gorka then went on to beat the drum for what the administration is supposedly doing to defeat terror around the world:

“This is an international global threat. What we have to do now is is not only destroy organizations like ISIS, which we are doing — they will be annihilated — but also delegitimize the ideology so it will be become as heinous and reject as fascism and Nazism is today. That black flag of ISIS has to be globally rejected like the swastika and we’ll work with Muslim partners to overtly and covertly delegitimize their message. That’s the definition of victory — when people don’t want to become jihadis, that’s when we’ll have one.”

Asked about a recent attack on a mosque in Minnesota, Gorka downplayed the incident:

“There’s a great rule (that) all initial reports are false. You have to check them, you find out who the perpetrators are. We’ve have a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes by right-wing individuals, in the last six months to that turned out to have actually been propagated by the left, so let’s wait and see — let’s allow the local authorities to provide their assessment and then the White House will make its comments.”

Sure they will. Don’t expect to hear a damn thing from Gorka, Trump, or anyone else in this administration. Because according to their perverse logic, a Muslim can only be a suspect, not a victim.
