Late yesterday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was stripped of all of her committee assignments in the House of Representatives. Every Democrat and 11 of her fellow Republicans voted against her. Before the vote that kicked her off the committees, Greene gave a speech in defense of her own actions while challenging Democrats. However, not a single Republican rose to speak in defense of Greene.
“Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said during a speech on the House floor Thursday that Congress wants to “crucify” her for actions that she has since apologized for, yet tolerates members who have “condoned riots,” which has led to violence against police officers and destruction of property,” according to Breitbart. [emphasis added]
“Greene has come under fire for her past controversial and conspiratorial remarks that emerged in videos and social media posts amid her congressional bid. This included screenshots in which she believed that the Parkland school shooting was a “false flag” operation.
“Greene condemned her past support for the conspiracy theories and said that they do not represent her values or district.
“However, she did note that Democrats have supported “conspiracy theories,” such as the idea that Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.” [emphasis added]
