If you’ve followed the bizarre and often offensive rantings from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), you may recall that she once blamed the wildfires in California on “lasers.”
Back in January of last year, Media Matters reported on Greene’s claim regarding lasers, which she posted on Facebook:
Rep. Greene is a proponent of the Camp Fire laser beam conspiracy theory. She wrote a November 17, 2018, Facebook post — which is no longer available online — in which she said that she was speculating “because there are too many coincidences to ignore” regarding the fire, including that then-California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) wanted to build the high-speed rail project and “oddly there are all these people who have said they saw what looked like lasers or blue beams of light causing the fires.” She also speculated that a vice chairman at “Rothschild Inc, international investment banking firm” was somehow involved, and suggested the fire was caused by a beam from “space solar generators.”
Now, however, Marj wants us to believe that reporting on what she posted has hurt her feelings, so she went and whined to fellow right-wing asshat Mike Huckabee, telling him:
Hurt her feelings? Really? Don’t you have to be a living, sentient being to have those?
Not content to have allegedly been a part of the January 6 Capitol insurrection, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is now suggesting that it may be time to use guns on her Democratic opponents.
Greene was speaking to disgraced former Trump administration aide Sebastian Gorka as part of his pathetic excuse of a radio show which appears on the right-wing Salem Network when she brought up the subject of Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who Greene claims is wrong on the issues of gun rights and the COVID vaccine:
She hates to use this language? No she doesn’t! She’s happy to use threats and fear to rile up her extremist base of supporters who are still convinced that Donald Trump won the 2020 election and is second only to Jesus in their bigoted brains.
Of course, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Greene would be spouting such dangerous rhetoric. After all, she’s been doing it since she first announced her candidacy.
According to CNN, Greene has a history of calling for violence against anyone who disagrees with her:
In one post, from January 2019, Greene liked a comment that said “a bullet to the head would be quicker” to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In other posts, Greene liked comments about executing FBI agents who, in her eyes, were part of the “deep state” working against Trump.
Oh, and then there was this, also aimed at Pelosi:
“She’s a traitor to our country, she’s guilty of treason,” Greene says in the video, which she posted on Facebook at the time. “She took an oath to protect American citizens and uphold our laws. And she gives aid and comfort to our enemies who illegally invade our land. That’s what treason is. And by our law representatives and senators can be kicked out and no longer serve in our government. And it’s, uh, it’s a crime punishable by death is what treason is. Nancy Pelosi is guilty of treason.”
Maybe the voters in Greene’s district will do us all a favor and un-elect her in November. In the meantime, she needs to be under investigation by the Justice Department for a number of crimes, including issuing terroristic threats and giving aid and comfort to traitors who tried to overthrow the U.S. government.
Right-wingers absolutely love to talk about how progressives want to impose “cancel culture” on everything they disagree with, which is really just code for conservatives wanting to be racist, homophobic, sexist, or disgustingly bigoted and getting their feelings hurt when they’re called out for being willfully obtuse.
But cancel culture came to call for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Thursday during her media event with fellow extremist Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL). And this time it came from the right.
First of all, the press conference on the first anniversary of the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was even more batshit crazy than you’d expect hearing the names Greene and Gaetz, with the Florida perv insisting that Jan. 6 had been a false flag staged by the federal government:
He then went fully fact-free:
When it was Greene’s turn to talk, she picked up the baton from Florida Man and kicked off her own demented rant:
Extreme right-wing “news” site Newsmax quickly cut away from Greene, with the host noting:
Yep, Marj and the Sunshine State Perv got canceled by a right-wing outlet, which may well be the most ironic thing of 2022 even though the year has just begun.
Sorry, Marj, but even your conservative, tinfoil hat-wearing compatriots appear to be tired of your crap.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) went on fact-free, extended Twitter rant (19 tweets!) on Saturday, spewing conspiracy theories, vitriol, and plenty of whining as she compared what she called “Before COVID” and “After COVID,” even going to far as to suggest (incorrectly) that some people who aren’t vaccinated are being denied medical treatment.
Greene asserted in her tweetstorm that the only reason the government is urging Americans to get vaccinated is to enrich pharmaceutical companies, which is more than a bit hypocritical when you consider that she owns stock in companies that are producing the vaccine:
Greene holds stock in AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson, each worth between $1,000 and $15,000, according to an August 13, 2020, filing from Greene with the clerk of the House of Representatives.
Here are some of the lowlights from Greene’s social media meltdown:
Is any of what Greene alleges true? Of course not! The woman hasn’t said anything accurate or factual since she announced she was running for Congress. And she’s only accelerated her bullshit since getting elected.
Reaction to Greene’s stupidity was immediate and harsh:
UPDATE: Greene’s Twitter account has been permanently suspended for spreading lies and misinformation about COVID.
While she loves to brag that she’s vehemently opposed to medical science such as the efficacy of vaccines, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has the MAGA faithful in a tizzy as a result of something she posted on social media.
Greene thought she’d feed some red meat to the far right of the GOP on Twitter, so she declared that there are only two genders, a favorite applause line for the anti-LGBTQ contingency of the Republican Party:
As Patriot Takes noted, it was only a matter of time before MTG got some serious pushback from the flat earthers:
Gender is a continuous variable, a social construct with near infinite variability. Sex is a genetically-determined discrete variable. There are only two sexes (although even this isn’t technically true, genetically).
Science appears to be especially hard for you, Marge.
