The Marjorie Taylor Greene thread.
 
She is the Qanon Conspiracy supporter who was elected to the House from Georgia.
She is off to a great start.
Engaged in a fight with one of most powerful GOP House leaders;
Attacked Mask wearing and said she would not wear one even if House rules require it
And when Kevin McCarthy, House GOP leader said she had renounced the Qanon conspiracy thoery, she quickly denied that.
And much more to follow no doubt.
Guaranteed, the GOP House leadership will hate her a lot more then the Dems will as she becomes a major league embarassment to the party and no doubt will constantly attack the GOP House leaderhsip as being RINOs and Traitors.

She's the woman who recently posted a Youtube video of her working out in her hotel room because the evil Dems in DC had closed all gyms.

It was later confirmed that not only are gyms open in DC, but the gym in her hotel was open while she was doing her room workout.

Venom 14th November 2020 09:36 PM

They'd better condemn her openly and whenever she goes full loony, or they lose all credibility, if Republicans indeed have any credibility left.

Ah, Georgia. I went to college in Georgia, and lived there a couple of years afterwards. It's a deeply crazy place full of deeply crazy people. It's next door to Florida in both physical and metaphorical senses.

Stacyhs 14th November 2020 11:10 PM

Don't forget Alabama where the latest newly elected senator,, Tommy Tuberville, recently declared that the 3 branches of gov't are the House, the Senate and the Executive. Not only that, but he gave use the heart warming story about his father who stormed the Normandy beach at 18 and drove his tank to Paris where he never forgot the faces of the people who were so thankful at being liberated from the Communists and Socialists. I kid you not. The southern AL/Fl panhandle is where my dad's biological paternal family is from. Thank God he was adopted by a Democrat family in another state or I might be driving a truck with a Trump flag AND a Stars and Bars flag with a QAnon sticker and a rifle in the back window.

Think so too.

I don't want to bothside this, but AOC and the squad have been a major theme in the Republican campaign ads against more moderate House members. And it has proved a successful strategy.

She basically started it when she attacekd Cranshaw because he did not out ant say the election was stolen, but did the "let's wait until the investigations are over" line. Insuffficent loyealty to Dear Leader. (Though I have no doubt she will turn onTrump is a second if she thinks it will help her.)
She is going to wage war on the GOP leadershipt becsuse it looks good to her Qanon followers. I wonder if the voters inher district, understand they elected somebody who does not give damn about helping the, but about using her seat to make her the defacto leader of the Qanon movement.

She's so full of cow dung. She acts as if no Republican governors shut down churches during the lockdown last spring. Nuts like her used to claim it was the Jews who stole Christian babies to eat. Now it's the Democrats eating babies. What next? The Protocols of Dems? Leftist extremists have some political ideas conservatives highly disagree with but, damn....they aren't bat crap insane like accusing conservatives of eating babies and running sex rings out of pizza parlors.

We need to get a betting pool going on how long until Greene plays the race card. Not too ong I suspect.
ANd I have a thoery that the MAGA movement might well go in a anti semitic direction. I have already seen on some message boards what amount to "I love Donald, but I needs to get rid of that Jew Son In Law." Let's just say the average Trump supporter seems to have all the same traits we see om Amto Semites.

dudalb 15th December 2020 04:48 PM

She doubles down on the "Masks Are Evil" nonsense:

(from the WAPO)

"Masks will now be required at all times in the hall of the House of Representatives, including when lawmakers are recognized to speak, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday.
“To be clear, members will not be recognized unless they are wearing a mask and recognition will be withdrawn if they remove the mask while speaking,” said Pelosi, the House speaker.
Mask mandates have gained traction across party lines as an effective way to slow the spread of the coronavirus. But the House rules could be tested by a vocal mask opponent elected in November: Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia Republican perhaps best known as the first open supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory to win a seat in Congress.
Greene tweeted her displeasure at Pelosi’s mask announcement Tuesday: “Is this the Marjorie Mask Mandate, @SpeakerPelosi? An oppressive violation of my rights. #MyBodyMyChoice”
Greene did not respond to The Post’s questions about whether she would follow the House rules. In a statement provided through a spokesman, she said The Post should ask Pelosi “when she is getting the vaccine” because then “she wouldn’t have a reason to force me to wear a mask.”
Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) responded to Greene’s tweet by defending the mask mandate as an important protection for staff. Vaccinating the country is a massive logistical operation, and it will take months for vaccines to reach the general population.
“Masks protect people around you and you don’t have a special ‘right’ to endanger Congressional staff or Capitol Police officers,” Beyer tweeted.
Many scientific studies have found that new infections fell notably after leaders instructed people to consistently wear face coverings, and Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, testified before the Senate in September that masks are “the most important, powerful public health tool we have” to fight the virus.
Over the summer, Pelosi had said that members of Congress could remove their masks temporarily when recognized to speak."



We don't need all this evil, deep state science stuff....


Like I said, the Dems will make her the poster child for GOPers in the house, and the GOP House leadership will hate her guts for being such a source of trouble.

You are, because facts matter, and the truth is always allowed.

If you drew a Venn diagram of Stupidity, Ignorance and Conspiricism, Marjorie Taylor-Greene would be firmly positioned at the centre of the intersect.

Stacyhs 15th December 2020 08:32 PM

I think the one thing this whole election debacle has done is cut the truly brain dead GOP Congress critters from the regular dumb GOP Congress herd. Now to put the T brand on them, castrate them, and send them to the slaughterhouse.

The Dems don't need to do anything about Tuberville. Clearly out of his depth on many fronts, all they need do is trigger this numpty in public now and then, and the GOP will have to do the cleaning-up after him. He won't last long while he fails to keep his mouth shut about what he don't know.

I've seen before where she's used that "My Body My Choice" thing against the mask mandate- sounds like she thinks she's got a sure-fire gotcha! there- "checkmate, Dems!" Of course, she has the whole thing completely backward, since the masks (as pointed out) are primarily to help protect other people, not yourself. So, I wonder how she'd react if some guy wanting to have sex with her refused to wear a condom to help protect her against STD, saying, "no, nuh-uh- My Body My Choice!"

He won a six-year term. Even as just one in 100, he can do a lot of damage before his next election. But his stupidity might be net benefit to the world. Cruz, Cotton, Hawley etc. are more dangerous because they're smarter.

"The Speaker shall preserve order and decorum and, in case of disturbance or disorderly conduct in the galleries or in the lobby, may cause the same to be cleared."

I would assume this would extend to individual members as well.
