“Majorie Taylor Greene spits stupid and disgusting information in the halls of Congress.

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) continues to make waves in political circles despite representing Georgia’s 14th district in the House of Representatives for less than a month.

Even before her election, Greene drew attention for her support of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which hinges on the delusion that the United States government is secretly controlled by a network of satanic pedophile cannibals and that former President Donald Trump was sent to expose them.

Greene continues to be one of the most far-right voices in the House, even promoting articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden on his first full day in office.

If I were elected, I’d want to be sworn in on the NAMBLA Bulletin, issue number one!

Swearing in on the bible…what a crazy notion.

01) I would take issue with the claim that “things had switched”, regarding the lefts history of protest and anger and the rights history of modesty and respecting the establishment…

…Leftists are still every bit as angry and protesting the system, as ever…it just seems more of the right has entered into this territory with us.

02) People in the U.S. government who “can’t be bought off”?!…

…Is this guy serious?!

03) …Another “let’s move on”?…

Nobody is “killing Donald Trump again”…This is entirely about accountability and reckoning.

If they simply ignore it all and let this go [incitement of the capital riot that killed five people]…then what excuse exists to ever hold any politician legally responsible, no matter what they do?

It is an extreme dereliction of duty, to simply do nothing about this.

I wanted to say this was a generally interesting interview [I did follow till the end, after all]…but this guy is a bozo.

“From the 1990 album “Third World Warrior”.

Now after a decade of cripplin’ sanctions we’re talkin’ about goin’ back in there and doin’ it all over again, fightin’ terrorism.”
