Omar and AOC will undoubtedly already have heavy official security provided as part of their job. And extra measures as the result of death threats. In Congress, there are no guns allowed except by the designated security forces. Should any of the right-wing crazies even threaten to physically assault others, that would lead most likely to laughter. As well as mentally, both MTG and Boebert are tiny little people physically. Despite her gym-bunny background, MTG might be able to lift a desk but she is not a fighter. Boebert is just a racist loudmouth pipsqueak without her guns. They talk big but they wouldn't dare. Omar and AOC are safe enough there.

It would give pause to most decent, thoughtful people when they hear something like that. It's not unbelievable. But the response is callous indifference and even amusement, because whether the MAGA base admits it or not they largely supported what happened on Jan 6. Maybe you do too.

Yea but they are not always on the floor and they are allowed to carry in the capital just not on the floor, something they find objectionable and were fined for dodging around security so they could bring their guns onto the floor.

Green ignoring attempts by McCarthy and the GOP house leadership to reign in her comments,afraid she might hurt their chances of taking back the house.
IMHO only a matter of time before she turns on McCarthy. The Frankenstein monsters always turns on it's creator in the end.

You don't remember the horrific Bowling Green Massacre where liberals attacked innocent conservatives who were saying Merry Christmas to each other IN PUBLIC and then held them down to be Covid vaccinated? How soon we forget these atrocities.

OK, I checked the calendar and the House and Senate are both in session. Has Marjorie Taylor Greene been on Steve Bannon's show every day this week? I think that she has. I know that she doesn't have committee work, but she sure has a lot of time to do media hits during the work day.

This stuff is great. On the one hand we have a discussion of how dems need to arm themselves to protect themselves from this gop threat. On the other hand, we have dems wishing death upon gop members.

At some point you might think a moment of introspective thought might occur.

Who said that? I was specifically commenting on the extremes being port forth on the same page. Of course, a small group can't be representative of everyone. There are always going to be outliers and extremists. Sometimes around here it is hard to tell which is which.

As they say, if the shoe fits...

In other words. saying a person was a part of a discussion actually means nothing, but you just had to say it anyway.

Her fans have been saying crap like this for months as well, she’s just doing the same.

It’s also possible she is one of those GQP Neanderthals who think Cancer is contagious. I wouldn’t doubt she’d ban a cancer patient from her gym.

I was going to say that I don't understand why anyone would find it funny, if Greene actually said something that thunderously stupid, misleading and, under the circumstances, morally wrong. Certain posters here have complained of moral vacuity and the like in certain threads, and some have pointed out that immorality depends in part on its effect on others. Lying to others, especially about medical matters which might kill them, seems to fit that pretty well. Far more than cheering when a hated enemy dies from an agency not one's own.

Of course one is free to believe MTG is not lying, and is actually that stupid and thoughtless, making her a somewhat less immoral idiot.

Or do you think it's funny that some here actually believe that cancer is not a contagious disease?

Do, pray tell, what's funny about this?

American Heart Association:
We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination. Twitter link
Greene is actually quoting a statement made in the Circulation journal. What the American Heart Association really said was pretty much the reverse. From Forbes:
Quote:

A research abstract was published on November 8 in the medical journal Circulation...However, there has been some drama around this abstract and its being short on a little thing called “evidence” to support such claims. In fact, on November 24, an American Heart Association committee added an “Expression of Concern” warning due to “potential errors in the abstract.Forbes link
What a liar Greene is. :(

A shorthand way of saying her statements are indefensible. The only way she could contend that she's not a very great idiot is to admit that she is an even greater hypocrite.

I don't think she even cares if it makes sense. It just seems to support what she wants and that is enough. We all know such people exist; the scary thing is that there are so many of them.

Thing is, they have always been there. Lots of the things claimed by religions are quite as silly. I guess a lot of people find themselves hard put to understand reality, and unable to do much about it anyway, so they might as well embrace a nice fantasy. It won't impact their reality either way, so why worry?
