“On January 21st, 2021, I will be introducing Articles of Impeachment On President-Elect, Joe Biden” announced QAnon Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Greene appeared on Newsmax, a channel devoted to pro-Trump propaganda Wednesday night speaking to host Greg Kelly.
A freshman congresswoman whose seat in the House has barely warmed had been beset by controversies from the moment she entered the race. Mostly due to her support for the QAnon movement- a splinter group deemed terrorist threat who believes that Trump is sending discreet messages via info drops regarding an internal war against Democrats- who they maintain are an organized group of pedophile cannibals worshipping Satan. One of the “Q” figureheads is a man from England who claims to have had sex with an alien he calls the “Cat Queen” and fathered an extraterrestrial son. Of course, this Q beacon is entrusted with top secret information, from the otherwise anonymous Q, to deliver unto the masses of followers, mostly in America.
She has famously sworn allegiance to Donald Trump, even co-opted the “Say Her Name” campaign to honor Transgender women murdered without Justice. “Say His Name” she tweeted. “Donald John Trump. Stop Big Tech Censorship.” The US President was first suspended for inciting further violence in the aftermath of the January 6th Capitol Hill attack by his supporters which saw them actively seeking to harm or kill Democrat leaders and the Vice President Mike Pence who they believed betrayed Trump by refusing to overturn the election in his favor.
Just hours after the Cpitol Hill attack that resulted in five deaths as a result of the lies Trump and his allies have relentlessly pushed, some GOP lawmakers who intended to challenge the electoral results and obstruct the confirmation of Joe Biden, relented. Having now stared directly into the mouth of the beast that their own rhetoric and baseless allegations had created, several Senators and members of the House changed their mind about pushing the myths than had led to their lives being threatened with the very sacred walls intended to protect democracy. Greene, along with Boebert and all of the aforementioned members of the Republican Party, including Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, opted to continue their deluge of misinformation and voted to challenge the results anyway.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, in the hopes of inheriting Trump’s base along with other members of Congress and Senate, believes the torch has been passed to them to carry on the myriad of debunked myths- especially that election fraud resulted in Joe Biden winning the election, and that he is an illegitimate President. Greene, along with her QAnon colleague elected to congress, have amped up their deeply damaging lies and rhetoric to keep Trump supporters under the impression that they are the victims of a Democrat enemy and that the 2020 election was stolen from them… in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Greene and fellow QAnon Congresswoman Lauren Boebert have been threatened with censure by their fellow House members as they continue to use their platform to incite the same violence that saw the President they have sworn fealty to become the first in US History to be impeached twice.
In spite of the increased security at the Capitol Building intended to keep lawmakers safe, Greene has continued her disruptive streak. Yesterday, she threw a temper tantrum upon being asked to walk through metal detectors before joining other lawmakers, who had already submitted to bag checks and passed through the detectors, in the congressional gallery. Greene claimed it was against her constitutional right, being asked to walk through the metal detectors. Their alarm had gone off during her attempt before she went into a full protest. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert also found herself locked into a standoff with security as she, too, refused to pass through the detectors or have her bags scanned. Boebert took to twitter to complain about the security measures. Both were eventually allowed to pass through without being scanned, as were other GOP congress people, some who have been accused of colluding with the organizer of the “Save America” rally that led to the riots. Louie Gohmert (Texas), Steve Stivers (Ohio), Van Taylor (Texas), Debbie Lesko (Ariz.) and Larry Bucshon all slipped past the metal detectors, refusing to comply with simple security measures.
Greene also infamously, once again, politicized wearing a mask by addressing congress with one that had the word “CENSORED” positioned over her mouth. Just to restate- she was addressing congress, defending lies and pushing conspiracy theories proved false, while on the floor, televised before millions, claiming to be the victim of censorship. Other masks Greene has begrudgingly worn on the floor of the House of Representative where it is required, signal messages like “Trump Won.” Although 60 Judges have determined that is a lie… but in fact the very rhetoric that led to violence by those influenced by powerful leaders.
While the Capitol Hill lay under siege by violent Trump supporters, provoked by a persistent flood of lies and even suggestions of violence being a necessary means to “Save your country,” members of Congress and Senate were rushed from their special session to formally count the electoral votes, to an undisclosed location for their safety. Huddled together in a room, surrounded by law enforcement, a Democrat leader handed out mask to protect member of the house who are aged or already infirmed. Greene, along with her more radicalized GOP allies, refused the masks. Today, over a week later, at least three members of Congress in the room that day have tested positive for COVID-19, including 75 year old cancer survivor, New Jersey Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman.
Video, obtained by Punchbowl News, shows an older woman approaching Greene to offer a mask… which they refused.
Marjorie Taylor Green is on a crusade to somehow salvage Trump’s reputation, not really interested in abiding by her oath, or serving the constituents who voted for her to represent them. Similarly, Boebert has a troubling axe to grind, having tweeted attacks specifically mentioning Nancy Pelosi upwards of 50 times in less than a year. More concerning? While being moved to a secure area during the riots at the Capitol Building with Trump supporters outsides chanting death threats to Pelosi, Boebert live tweeted Pelosi’s movement from inside leading some to wonder if she was working in concert with rioters who had targeted the Speaker of the House by compromising her location or making her vulnerable.
Rep. Cori Bush has introduced a bill seeking to expel Republican members of congress who opted to run with Trump’s aggressive campaign of lies in an effort to engage in a government coup.
