I’m just now catching up to something Marjorie Taylor Greene said over the weekend:
The Georgia Republican spoke Saturday at a dinner hosted by the New York Young Republican Club and recounted how her critics have incorrectly labeled her an organizer of the insurrection that left one person shot dead and led to the deaths of two other police officers.
“I want to tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, we would’ve been armed,” she said Saturday, according to the New York Post.
We all know MTG is dumber than a drawer full of odd socks, but there is no excuse for this. And there needs to be some kind of response to it, with teeth. Taking up arms against the government is not a joke. The White House has already issued a disapproving statement, but that’s not enough. The last time members of Congress openly advocated armed insurrection was just before the Civil War, I suspect.
At the GOP dinner on Saturday night, Greene didn’t limit her comments to boasting that she and Bannon could have ended democracy as we know it on Jan. 6. She complained about policies to protect transgender children in the classroom and claimed that “teachers can pass around dildos, butt plugs and lube.”
I keep saying, the only way to understand where the Right is coming from is to imagine they are all ten-year-old boys. Rolling Stone also reminds us that they have testimony MTG was in on the planning of January 6.
Two anonymous sources who organized the pro-Trump rally that preceded the Capitol attack have told Rolling Stone they recalled working with Greene on the rally. “I remember Marjorie Taylor Greene specifically,” one organizer said. “I remember talking to probably close to a dozen other members at one point or another or their staffs.”
Just for fun I looked up MTG’s district. Maybe we could persuade them to secede again. Just the district, of course, not the whole state of Georgia. If they like MTG they must want another Civil War.
