Greene a ‘Democrat or an Idiot,’ Fellow Republican Says

After being Twitter suspended her personal account, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) had another social media scuffle, this time with fellow conservative Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), who said she “might be an idiot” on Instagram.

Crenshaw, a former Navy Seal known for his signature eye patch, hit back Greene after she claimed he was hurting the right-wing brand following an interview he had with Fox News.

Greene took issue with Crenshaw’s insistence that President Joe Biden needed to get the pandemic under control.

“So what the federal government should be doing, again, is using their FEMA resources to bolster a lot of these testing sites, open up new testing sites,” he told Fox.

Greene took to Instagram to address Crenshaw, saying FEMA shouldn’t be used to set up test sites for “sneezes, coughs, and runny noses.”

“Hey, Marjorie, if suggesting we should follow Trump[‘s] policy instead of Biden mandates makes you mad, then you might be a Democrat – or just an idiot,” Crenshaw replied.

GOP Goes After ‘Big Tech’ Following Greene’s Twitter Ban

After Twitter banned Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA)’s personal account, Republicans are bolstering their attacks against “Big Tech” and social media giants.

Former President Donald Trump issued a scathing statement, saying the platform was “a disgrace to democracy.”

“They shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country,” Trump said. “Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people. They don’t deserve what’s happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook.”

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) addressed the situation, vowing that the GOP will hold the social media giant “accountable,” should they win back the House in the 2022 midterm elections.

Twitter banned Trump a year ago, but experts say Greene’s ban sets a “more far-reaching precedent,” since Trump’s ban came as he was about to leave office.

“The fact that Twitter cut her off, despite being an elected official, is a substantial change in the broad latitude that elected officials have had in the past,” said Darrell West, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Center for Technology Innovation.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) also criticized the company’s decision to permanently suspend a “sitting member of Congress.”

“It is clear any speech that does not fit Big Tech’s orthodoxy gets muzzled. America is poorer for that conduct,” McCarthy said in a statement.

Twitter’s action against Greene is fueling accusations from the GOP that “Big Tech” has an anti-conservative bias.

McCarthy said he directed “relevant committees and task forces to continue their work in getting answers — voluntarily or through rigorous congressional oversight — from Twitter and other Big Tech companies surrounding their decision to silence certain Americans and to hold these companies accountable.”

“House Republicans will be ready to take action that protects Americans when they express their constitutionally safeguarded views, just like we have laws on the books today that prohibit discrimination by corporations in many other contexts,” he said.

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Personal Account Permanently Banned from Twitter

Twitter announced it had permanently suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account for “repeated violations” of the social media platform’s “COVID-19 misinformation policy.”

“We permanently suspended Marjorie Taylor Greene for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” Twitter said in a statement. “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”

Greene addressed the company’s decision on the social media platforms Telegram and GETTR.

“When Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out rioters on Twitter, and Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics, Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth,” Greene wrote. “That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies.”

According to Rolling Stone, Twitter’s decision came after a tweet Greene posted on Saturday.

“Greene on Saturday afternoon tweeted that prior to the Covid outbreak deaths from vaccines were taken seriously, but now an ‘extremely high amount of covid vaccine deaths are ignored and government forced vaccine mandates are increased,'” the outlet reported.

Greene’s congressional Twitter account is still active on the platform.

Congresswoman Floats Tax and Voting Penalties for Those Leaving Blue States

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) expressed support for penalizing those who move from blue to red states by temporarily rescinding their right to vote or imposing a tax.

Greene pondered the possibility on Twitter, retweeting a post responding to a viral thread from a liberal man announcing a move from California to Florida.

“This guy is moving from California to Florida because he can’t stand living in the mess that lib politics created and he *still* has the audacity to talk down to Floridians about their politics. Libs are a cancer. They are the absolute worst people in this country,” Pedro Gonzalez tweeted.

In a follow-up post, Gonzalez added: “I support actively discriminating against transplants like this through legislation. They shouldn’t be able to vote for a period, and they should have to pay a tax for their sins.”

Greene retweeted Gonzalez’s second tweet, writing, “All possible in a National Divorce scenario. After Democrat voters and big donors ruin a state like California, you would think it wise to stop them from doing it to another great state like Florida. Brainwashed people that move from CA and NY really need a cooling off period.”

However, critics say a “national divorce” would be impractical and unhelpful.

“There is no ‘National Divorce’ either you are for civil war or not,” Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) tweeted. “Just say it if you want a civil war and officially declare yourself a traitor.”

“Don’t ignore this. I want you to see what a GOP-run country looks like. They will take your right to vote if you don’t agree with them,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) tweeted. “[Greene] may sound batty but she’s not kidding and she has [Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)] fully behind her.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says Kwanzaa is ‘a Fake Religion Created By a Psychopath’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) responded to a tweet from the College Republicans wishing people a happy Kwanzaa by calling it a “fake religion created by a psychopath.”

“Stop. It’s a fake religion created by a psychopath,” Greene tweeted. “You aren’t bringing in new voters, you are turning them away. People are tired of pandering and BS.”

Kwanzaa is not a religion. According to Britannica, it is “an annual holiday affirming African family and social values that is celebrated primarily in the United States.” Kwanzaa “was perceived as a nonpolitical and nonreligious holiday, and it is not considered to be a substitute for Christmas.”

The College Republicans didn’t respond to Greene’s tweet, but it did retweet several other Kwanzaa-related posts from other conservatives.

“As President Trump said, ‘Kwanzaa is an opportunity to foster deeper cultural understanding and build stronger bonds of mutual respect and friendship between all Americans,” one user tweeted.

Namecalling Continues in Greene’s Latest Squabble: ‘Bats—t Crazy’

Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) exchanged insults on Tuesday, with the pair hurling names like “trash” and “bats—t crazy.”

After Mace criticized Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for an anti-Muslim remark about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Greene blasted her on Twitter.

“[Mace] is the trash in the GOP Conference,” Greene wrote. “Never attacked by Democrats or RINO’s (same thing) because she is not conservative, she’s pro-abort.” RINO is an acronym for “Republican in name only.”

“Mace you can back up off of [Boebert] or just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad. Your out of your league,” she added.

Mace replied within minutes, starting her Tweet by correcting Greene’s spelling.

“And, while I’m correcting you, I’m a pro-life fiscal conservative who was attacked by the Left all weekend (as I often am) as I defied China while in Taiwan,” Mace wrote. “What I’m not is a religious bigot (or racist). You might want to try that over there in your little ‘league.'”

About an hour later, Mace posted another response to Greene’s insult. She quote-tweeted Greene’s initial post with a caption indicating the lawmaker’s words were an example of “bats—t crazy,” utilizing the bat, poop, and clown emojis.

When asked about the feud between Mace and Greene, Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, appeared to try to divert attention away from the social media spat.

“We are unified on the issues that matter to the American people, on making sure that we’re reining in our spending, to tackle inflation, on investing in border security. The issues that people care about are not the Twitter infighting. They care about issues that impact their daily lives. And that’s what Republicans are focused on,” Stefanik said.

Greene Introduces Bill to Award Congressional Gold Medal to Rittenhouse

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) introduced a bill to award the Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle Rittenhouse for “protecting the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020.”

The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest honor Congress can award an individual or institution. It’s unlikely the bill will move forward in the Democratic-controlled House and Senate, with no co-sponsors.

“Kyle Rittenhouse deserves to be remembered as a hero who defended his community, protected businesses, and acted lawfully in the face of lawlessness. I’m proud to file this legislation to award Kyle Rittenhouse a Congressional Gold Medal,” Greene said in a statement.

Recently, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) offered Rittenhouse an internship.

“We are concerned that awarding Kyle with a Congressional Gold Medal will give him a big head during the internship with our office,” a spokesperson for Gaetz said.

The highly-politicized case became a rallying point, with the left portraying and condemning Rittenhouse as a white-supremacist vigilante and the right embracing him as a folk hero.

Despite the high-profile attention from politicians, Rittenhouse has maintained that his trial was not about politics.

“No matter what your opinion is or where you stand, this wasn’t a political case, it shouldn’t have been a political case, it was made a political case,” the 18-year-old recently told Tucker Carlson. “It has nothing to do with race, and the ways people are twisting this is sickening.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene receives third fine for refusing to wear mask on House floor

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA.), who once compared COVID-19 restrictions to the Holocaust, received her third fine for refusing to wear a mask on the House floor.

“I’m taking a stand on the House floor because I don’t want the people to stand alone,” Greene said after receiving the fine.

Legislators who violate the House mask mandate receive a warning after the first offense, a $500 fine after the second, and $2,500 for each subsequent violation.

The House initially imposed its mask mandate last year, lifted it in June, and reinstated it in July amid the Delta variant surge.

In May, Greene likened the COVID-19 restrictions to “a time and history where people were told to wear a gold star … put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany.”

Greene later apologized for her comments after visiting the Holocaust Museum.

“There’s no comparison and there never ever will be,” she said.

Reps clash once again in a shouting match on the Senate floor: ‘you’re a joke’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) got into a verbal altercation with Jan. 6 committee members Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Jamie Raskin (D-MD) over Black Lives Matter and a bizarre conspiracy theory about Jewish space lasers.

Greene approached the others shortly before the House began voting on a resolution to hold Steve Bannon in contempt for defying subpoenas. She asked Raskin if he would investigate violence at Black Lives Matter protests.

“Like with Kyle Rittenhouse who went and killed two Black Lives Matter protesters?” Raskin replied. “I’m sure there will be an opportunity for us to get to that.”

“This is a joke,” Greene said in a raised voice. “Why don’t you investigate something people actually care about?”

Cheney then told Greene that she was “a joke.” Cheney said Greene should be focusing on Jewish space lasers, a reference to a conspiracy theory Greene previously promoted on Facebook, blaming “space lasers” controlled by a powerful Jewish family for starting wildfires in California. 

“I never said that! You’re done. You’re a joke!” Greene reportedly yelled at Cheney. “Why don’t you go investigate something that matters to the American people?”

WATCH: Marjorie Taylor Greene gets into shouting match with Dem lawmakers

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) sparked a shouting match with Democratic lawmakers on the Capitol steps, leading to several heated verbal altercations captured on video.

House Democrats were gathered on the steps for a news conference when Greene began shouting at them for having just passed a bill to protect abortion rights in response to the Supreme Court ruling on Texas’ anti-abortion measure.

“This is not women’s rights,” Green shouted.

Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-CA) told her she was “performative.”

Greene turned the accusation around, and after a brief exchange, declared, “You should all be ashamed!”

Moments later, Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) yelled at Greene to “practice the basic thing you’re taught in church: Respect your neighbor.”

“You try being a Christian and try treating your colleagues decently!” Dingell shouted.

Greene has had other verbal altercations with House Democrats in the past, namely Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Cori Bush (D-MO).
