“During a recent conversation with MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, Marjorie Taylor Greene said that no one could convince her that the Capitol Rioters – or at least those who “instigated” the riot – were actually Antifa soldiers. This means that Greene is going to continue to reject reality and instead live in the fantasy world that she has created in her own brain. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

During a recent interview with MyPillow CEO, Mike Lindell representative, Marjorie Taylor green, proudly proclaimed that she does not accept reality. Nope. Reality is no friend to Marjorie Taylor green and she rejects it. Here’s what I’m talking about. This is what she told Mike Lindell speaking, by the way of the January 6th capital riot, I was very upset. I never expected anything like that. And when that happened, I thought this is Antifa. Uh, and no one can convince me. It was so called Trump supporters. And we know there’s a lot wrong there. And I cannot wait for investigations, a real investigation so you can’t convince her that these people weren’t Antifa or Antifa or however you choose to pronounce it. It’s a made up word. So pretty much use whatever pronunciation you feel is best. So she who has been to and advocated for these people that she calls political prisoners still believe somehow was Antifa.
That did all of it, you know, instigated, it, got all these poor, innocent Trump supporters to do these horrible things. On that day, she continued, okay. They got charged for things they shouldn’t have done. Okay. That happened. They deserve their day in court. They deserve their due process rights. But honestly, my gosh, what’s happening to these people is so heartbreaking. I was in that jail. Yeah, we wish you were. I saw them. It’s so sad. They hadn’t bathed. They didn’t have haircuts. They couldn’t shave because they weren’t vaccinated. They were treated worse if they weren’t vaccinated. But what kind of country are we? We’re a country that, uh, has a real problem with our jails. I’ll give you that, but see, you don’t want to talk about reforming our jail systems here in the United States. You just want your political prisoners as you call them freed.
The reason they’re not able to go in there and bathe with the general population is you correctly pointed out is cuz they weren’t vaccinated. We, we were in the middle of a pandemic, which by the way, is still going on it. Wasn’t safe to make them go sit in a barber’s chair when they weren’t vaccinated and could potentially spread disease to other human beings. I mean you you’re a self-proclaimed Christian nationalist. I would think the most Christian thing you could do is not get other people sick, especially in a nation that doesn’t have universal healthcare. So, you know, uh, that’s probably a really dumb idea not to mention the protection of the prisoners themselves. They’re not vaccinated. They’re in highly, you know, confined and, and cram together quarters. You wouldn’t want them to get sick in an area like prisons where we already know the healthcare is garbage. So you would want them to be put in danger. I don’t understand your rationale for that. But none of that matters because you’re still out there denying the
Basic reality that these people were Trump supporters. They had been posting on social media for weeks leading up to the insurrection, which, which we talked about, talked about it here and over at ring of fire, all the posts they were putting on social media saying they were gonna do these things that wasn’t Antifa doing. That that was your people. Cuz the people you claim are political prisoners. They made it very clear what they were gonna do that day. In fact, some of them were actually arrested when they arrived in Washington DC before the stop, the steel rally even happened. So we knew they wanted to do this. That wasn’t Antifa. That was your crazy followers. Those were the followers of your guy, Donald Trump. So you can deny reality all you want, but that doesn’t change reality. See, that’s the best part about it being reality, just because you don’t accept it doesn’t mean that’s not the way things are.”
