Immediately after the January 6th insurrection, various Democratic congresspeople expressed their very real concerns that they were afraid of certain Republican members of Congress. Like, those Democrats were genuinely afraid that some GOP representatives and senators had aided and abetted the Capitol terrorists, and that those Republicans were still planning to harm Democrats. The shortlist of potentially murderous Republicans was pretty obvious to most, and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was on top. She’s a QAnon conspiracist with a history of “liking” social media posts which threatened violence against Democrats.

As that story took hold this week, another story about Rep. Greene came out – she was one of the wingnuts filming herself stalking and harassing survivors of the Parkland shooting. She’s one of those reprehensible “false flag” conspiracists who believe that “the government did Parkland and Sandy Hook so they could take away our guns.” Those dumbf–ks also believe that the children who died in those shootings didn’t really exist, and that the traumatized parents are just “actors.” I sh-t you not. There is still a “cottage industry” of gun nuts who stalk and harass Parkland and Sandy Hook survivors and the parents of murdered children. Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of those gun nuts.

Video of Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene confronting Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg before she was elected to Congress went viral Wednesday amid an uproar over newly reported comments she made in 2018 and 2019. In the video from March 2019, Greene follows Hogg as he walks toward the US Capitol. She can be heard making false and baseless claims as she asks him a series of questions related to gun rights and how he was able to meet with senators. Hogg continues to walk without addressing Greene.

“He’s a coward,” Greene says at the end of the video as Hogg walks away, claiming his activism was funded by billionaire philanthropist George Soros, who is often the subject of far-right conspiracy theories, and other liberals. “He can’t say one word because he can’t defend his stance.” Greene — who has previously called Hogg “#littleHitler” — said in a written statement to CNN that the video was taken while she was in Washington, “going from office to office in the Senate to oppose the radical gun control agenda that David Hogg was pushing.”

What’s f–king bonkers about the Greene video is that SHE MADE IT HERSELF and she posted it online. And somehow it never cropped up during her congressional campaign? Jesus. After one of the Parkland parents posted the video IDing Greene, David Hogg tweeted his statement, and he’ll be doing interviews today. There’s also a movement to flat-out expel Greene from Congress. Republicans are fighting it.

This is not the country we should be and it’s not the country we have to be.

What you see in that video is about 0.1% of what we go through in a year.

"None of us want to be doing this, but we have to, because sadly corrupted elected officials like Marjorie Taylor Greene are in Congress and would rather choose to protect guns than children."
