"small government" has never been about actually leaving people alone (especially not those that vote for your opponent). It's about using the rhetoric of libertarianism to fire the watchdogs on industries their friends are in.

Have to keep them away from Rudy Giuliani then.

And Tyler Perry, can't watch Mrs. Doubtfire, Some Like It hot, Milton Berle, Harvey Korman on the Carol Burnette show, etc.

Protecting your children from drag queen child predators is not a hate crime.

It’s being a good parent.
So now drag queens are 'child predators'? I guess it's too much to expect that idiots like Greene and the 8,000+ morons who retweeted this ignorance understand that homosexuality is not a synonym for pedophile. Ask Matt Gaetz, Jeffrey Epstein, Roy Moore, Dennis Hastert....

I guess none of her kids would be allowed to watch Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis in Some Like it Hot. Or Tom Hanks in Bosom Buddies.

During Shakespeare's time, all female roles were played by men. It was considered immoral for women to act.

No Food Network. They might accidentally see "The Great Food Truck Race". The current season is the second one to include a drag queen operating one of the food trucks.

We should pull out of NATO.

I fear she accurately represents the views of the Trumpist Republican party which means that after the midterms it reflects the majority view of the party that controls both the House and Senate.

Now she's calling for people to take to "the streets" to stop Biden, the "insane President."

Quote:
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene🇺🇸@RepMTG
Maybe now is the time to go “into the streets”
to stop this insane President and his cabinet
from sending us into a NUCLEAR WAR with Russia.
With our current fragile state, WW3 will destroy us all.
And it won’t matter how you vote.
Stop the drums of war!
China is cheering.

Newsweek link
She's advocated for Republican states seceding from the union. That the US should quit NATO. That the US should not assist Ukraine. Greene has voted 'No' on almost every Congressional bill aimed at providing assistance to Ukraine. Greene says the money should go to "the southern border." Now she's saying people should take to the streets. And do what?

Sure, I can put you in touch with a custom collar designer, audio, GPS, motion, really whatever sensors you want for sub management. Variable shock level too.

No need for 'variable shock'. Just a 'STFU' setting will do.

I remember an old Stundie nomination from the CT subforum in which someone claimed that using proper spelling and grammar was a sure sign of a person being a shill working for "them". Obviously it's the same for proper vocabulary.
