The Lovely and Talented...

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the next representative from Georgia's 14th Congressional District, Ms. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

 

"She's a hypocrite. She's anti-American. And we're going to kick that b*tch out of Congress."

-- Greene on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (California) at her victory party Tuesday night.

 

"Congratulations to future Republican Star Marjorie Taylor Greene on a big Congressional primary win in Georgia against a very tough and smart opponent," 

wrote Donald Trump. "Marjorie is strong on everything and never gives up - a real WINNER!"

Greene supports the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory.[6][7] In a 2017 video posted to Facebook, Green expressed doubt that the perpetrator of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting acted alone.[8] She also called George Soros, a Jewish businessman, a Nazi.[9][10] After the 2018 midterm elections, Greene stated that the election of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib was part of "an Islamic invasion of our government."[11]

 

After the first round of voting in the 2020 election, Politico unearthed videos published by Greene where she expressed racist, antisemitic, and Islamophobic views, which led to condemnation from Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise.[12]

The candidate, Marjorie Taylor Greene, suggested that Muslims do not belong in government; thinks black people “are held slaves to the Democratic Party”; called George Soros, a Jewish Democratic megadonor, a Nazi; and said she would feel “proud” to see a Confederate monument if she were black because it symbolizes progress made since the Civil War.

 

“These comments are appalling, and Leader McCarthy has no tolerance for them,” said Drew Florio, a spokesman for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

 

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) went further, throwing his weight behind Greene’s opponent.

 

“The comments made by Ms. Greene are disgusting and don’t reflect the values of equality and decency that make our country great,” Scalise said in a statement. “I will be supporting Dr. Cowan.”

 

Sitting cross-legged on the floor and sporting an American flag baseball cap, Greene said in one video that unemployment — which affects people of color at disproportionately higher rates — is simply the product of “bad choices” and being “lazy.”

 

Despite Greene’s penchant for controversy — she has already faced public criticism for taking a photo with a white supremacist, floating a conspiracy theory that the Las Vegas shooting massacre was a plot to abolish the Second Amendment and calling one of the student activists from Parkland high school “little Hitler”— Greene has earned some congressional support.

Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.
