Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene: The QAnon Lady From GA-14


Recommended Posts

Figured I'd start a thread for her since we end up frequently discussing her in the other threads.

She's upset that everyone's talking about the platform from the America First Caucus that is currently being formed in the US House.

Then, there's this:

Marjorie Taylor Greene Proposes Medals For Portland, Minneapolis Police After Opposing Them For Jan. 6 Officers

Quote

Topline

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Tuesday proposed legislation to award congressional gold medals to police who “protect American cities from Black Lives Matter (BLM) terrorists” after voting against awarding them to law enforcement that responded to the Jan. 6 attack.

Key Facts

Greene, in a statement, said three medals would be awarded under her resolution, two to the police departments of Minneapolis and Portland – two cities hit hard during last summer’s protests – and one to the Smithsonian for archival purposes.

The resolution comes on the same day William “Billy” Evans, a Capitol Police officer who was killed in a separate attack on the Capitol earlier this month, lay in honor at the Capitol rotunda.

The resolution would also “stipulate that the Secretary of the Treasury must endorse that the medals will not spend additional taxpayer dollars” by “drawing from the U.S. Medal fund at the U.S. mint.”

The bill is co-sponsored by Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.), a member of the right-wing freedom caucus who voted against the Jan. 6 gold medals, and Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.), a freshman, swing-district representative who voted for them.

Key Background

Greene was one of 12 Republicans who voted against a resolution last month to award medals to the Capitol Police and D.C. Metropolitan Police for responding to the Jan. 6 attack, specifically citing the “patriotism and the commitment” of wounded officers. Greene, at the time, took aim at the bill’s use of the word “insurrectionists” to describe the attackers and the description of the Capitol as a “temple of our American Democracy,” while accusing Democrats of wanting to “defund” the police. 

[...]

Crucial Quote

Greene’s statement is filled with the kind of incendiary language that has alienated her even from some Republican colleagues, accusing Black Lives Matter of a “terrorist campaign to burn down American cities, loot small businesses and murder citizens” and claiming a “violent rampage rages on in every major city.”

The press release from Taylor Greene's office about her proposal to honor the police departments of Portland and Minneapolis can be found here.

Important to remember at this point that MTG is just getting started.  She'll continue to outrage -- trolling the libs is her brand. 

She has no shame, and she is supported by a huge number of people both in her district and across the US for that exact reason.  The things that repel us (Christo-fascism, racism) are the things they find praise worthy and compelling.  She's a very, very dangerous woman.

Marjorie Taylor Greene scraps planned launch of controversial 'America First' caucus amid blowback from GOP

Quote

(CNN) Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is scrapping the planned launch of her "America First" caucus after receiving blowback from leaders in her own party, despite confirming through a spokesperson on Friday that the caucus would launch.

Nick Dyer, Greene's spokesperson, told CNN in an email on Saturday afternoon the Georgia Republican is not "launching anything."

"The Congresswoman wants to make clear that she is not launching anything. This was an early planning proposal and nothing was agreed to or approved," he said in an email to CNN, referring to a flier promoting the caucus, obtained by Punchbowl News, that used inflammatory rhetoric.

He added that "she didn't approve that language and has no plans to launch anything."

This is a reversal from Friday, when her office said she would launch the caucus "very soon."

"Be on the look out for the release of the America First Caucus platform when it's announced to the public very soon," Dyer said in a statement to CNN Friday.

Greene in a series of tweets Saturday afternoon also claimed that the staff-level draft proposal of her "America First" caucus is "from an outside group that I hadn't read." She also accused the media of creating "false narratives" and focusing on race to "divide the American people with hate through identity politics."

Greene suggested in her tweets she plans to move forward with advocating for former President Donald Trump's America First agenda.

The flier promoting the new caucus calls for a "common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions" and pushes a series of conspiracy theories about election integrity.

The flier also outlined a nativist argument warning that "mass immigration" poses a threat to "the long-term existential future of America as a unique country with a unique culture and a unique identity."

Congressional caucuses are voluntary groups usually made up of lawmakers seeking to advance certain policy agendas. While the groups operate outside of the formal congressional legislative structure, many have found success influencing debate and amplifying their shared policy prescriptions.

On Friday, amid news reports of the caucus, Dyer complained about the initial draft of the flier being leaked but confirmed to CNN in a statement that plans were in the works to form the group, which he said would be "announced to the public very soon."

The reversal from her office comes a day after top House Republican Kevin McCarthy indirectly referenced the congresswoman's new caucus, tweeting, "The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles."

And GOP conference chair Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, responded to the reporting about the new caucus from Greene in a tweet.

"Republicans believe in equal opportunity, freedom, and justice for all. We teach our children the values of tolerance, decency and moral courage," she wrote. "Racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil. History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate."

Embattled GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, who is under federal investigation over allegations involving sex trafficking and prostitution, tweeted Friday, "I'm proud to join @mtgreenee in the #AmericaFirst Caucus. We will end wars, stop illegal immigration & promote trade that is fair to American workers. This is just a hit piece from the America Last crowd in Big Media, Big Tech & Big Government."

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois said that he was "disgusted" following initial reports of the new caucus, and on Friday said that anyone who joins the caucus should have their committee assignments stripped and be expelled from Republican conference participation.

"While we can't prevent someone from calling themselves Republican, we can loudly say they don't belong to us," he wrote on Twitter.

Majorly Failure Greene wanted to debate AOC.  AOC didn't respond herself but the internetz did on her behalf.

Quote

GOP representative Marjorie Taylor Greene trended on Twitter Thursday after publicly challenging fellow congresswoman Alexandria Oscasio-Cortez to a debate on the Green New Deal Wednesday.

“I’d like to challenge you to a debate on the Green New Deal economic policy. Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have a degree in Economics, I’m sure you are more than qualified,” the Georgia rep wrote to the New York counterpart on Twitter.

While Ocasio-Cortez — a Democrat and prolific tweeter herself who has over 13 million followers on the app — did not respond, a number of political observers and commentators weighed in on her behalf, saying that Ocasio-Cortez was “too busy” to engage with someone “desperately trying to be relevant.”

Political satirist Jeremy Newberger wrote, “I imagine AOC is busy with her committee assignments,” referring to the fact that Taylor Greene had her own committee assignment stripped away in February after her past conspiracy-minded comments and calls for violence against Democrats resurfaced.

Wouldn't it be amusing if her face froze that way? That look reminds me of the Abominable Snowman from "Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer."

That looks like a Jill Rodrigues face to me, but with much less make up.  Plexus anyone?

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
