Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is being mocked online (again!) after once again drawing upon Nazi-related comparisons.
During an interview on One America News Network, Greene ranted about Nancy Pelosi using capitol police as “pawns” and sending them to the offices of Representatives to “investigate” them.
“Not only do we have the D.C. jail, which is the D.C. gulag, but now we have Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police spying on members of Congress,” she said.

As many pointed out, gazpacho is a cold, tomato soup. The Nazi police Greene intended to reference were the Gestapo.
Online, the response was swift.

At least she leads by example. She clearly banned all books from her house years ago https://t.co/SGMheBuFzn

Overheard: Marjorie Taylor Greene keeps talking about Nancy Pelosi’s “Gazpacho” and now I want the recipe.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is now attacking Speaker Pelosi’s “gazpacho police,” referring to the Nazi Gestapo.
First, Nazi comparisons are unbecoming of a Congresswoman. Second, I am not surprised Marge does not know the difference between gazpacho and Gestapo.

Reminder: no one is “spying” on your staff; you work for the American taxpayer. Your records should be public record, FFS. You’re a member of the U.S. federal government. Your work should be 100% transparent unless you’re dealing with classified information.

“Democrats are trying to implement Sangria Law!”
– Probably Marjorie Taylor Greene.

For the record, Marjorie is also worried about being subpiñaed by the Jan 6 colada.

Greene had her personal Twitter account permanently banned in January after she continually pushed harmful vaccine and Covid misinformation. Her official Representative’s Twitter account is still active. Perhaps wishing to show she’s capable of laughing at her own mistakes, Greene posted a tweet referencing the incident: “No soup for those who illegally spy on Members of Congress, but they will be thrown in the goulash.”

We’d almost credit her with some wit … if the satire account Ms. Betty Bowers, among others, hadn’t made a very similar joke an hour beforehand.
BREAKING: “The Hamburgler has been arrested by the Gazpacho Police and thrown into a Goulash.”

Others were similarly unimpressed.
This took hours to craft?

This is not the first time Greene’s Nazi-based comments have made headlines. Last June she was forced to apologize after comparing Capitol Hill mask-wearing rules to the Holocaust. Following an educational trip to the Holocaust Museum in DC, Greene later apologized for her “offensive” comparison.
I’ve been laughing about this all morning. I hope she doesn’t get Social Security (SSA, for Administration) mixed up with the Nazi SS.
She knew the word sounded foreign so it must be German right?
This is what Republicans get when they vote for someone to “Own the libs”.
I can’t stop laughing over this…lol
I don’t know about Pelosi’s gazpacho but I hear her Filibustery Cheese Steak and Caucus-Au-Vin are TO DIE FOR!!!!! MT-G should take all these and sell them in little ‘Homophoby Meal’ boxes for Chick-Fil-A!!!!
I’m sure Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn’t care what Queerty or the other far left outlets say about her. For a politician, the only thing that matters is what her constituents think, and according to the Cook Political Report, she has an 80% approval rating in her Congressional District and will win in November with a landslide.
