Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is a cause for national chagrin. The off-kilter representative of Georgia’s 14th congressional district – a district in which she doesn’t even live – gave a rambling speech of sorts to the far-right Alabama Federation of Republican Women (AFRW) this weekend. Greene, who has been removed from all congressional committees, threw out some heinous scraps for her supporters and enablers to chew on.
Since being removed from committees and as she’s unwilling to meaningfully contribute to our government or properly represent her constituents, Greene has plenty of time to run about the land and ingratiate herself with the basest elements of the QAnon party. Her talk to the AFRW was in keeping with the national profile Greene has sought to make for herself, and it was in keeping with what a nefarious organization like the AFRW wanted to hear.
The Georgia congressperson told attendees that she thinks President Biden should be impeached, although this is a defenseless stance. She went on to say that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) should be expelled from Congress, despite there being no reason for doing so – merely disliking someone is not a reason for expulsion. And of course Greene repeated the far-right talking point that the much-admired Dr. Anthony Fauci should be fired, again a meritless point. “We’ve got to take out the trash in Washington, DC,” stated Greene, who is quite the trash heap herself.
She made it clear that she remains a devotee of the previous president and that she’s still promoting the Big Lie, despite the fact that President Biden decisively and incontrovertibly won the election. It’s a sorry state of affairs for Republicans and our country when someone like Greene is one of the loudest voices the GOP has.
