Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is in trouble.
Calls to oust the Republican conspiracy theorist from Georgia are mounting as two more Democrats have announced plans to file a resolution demanding she resign.
Reps. Nikema Williams of Georgia and Sara Jacobs of California say they plan to introduce the resolution later today. According to a press release, the resolution will formally censure Greene for her remarks “supporting the assassination of current and former elected officials.”
The press release adds:
Congresswoman Greene’s comments and actions are dangerous, unpatriotic, and a clear threat to every Member of Congress. It would be irresponsible for us to allow her to use the ‘People’s House’ as a platform to peddle discredited conspiracy theories that only fan the flames of hatred and violence. This is the same rhetoric that provoked the lawlessness we saw during the January 6th Domestic Terrorist attack. We must do everything we can to prevent similar events from occurring ever again.
Jacobs and Williams are joining Rep. Jimmy Gomez of California, who announced last week his plans to introduce a resolution to expel Greene from Congress “in light of numerous reports revealing her repeated endorsements of sedition, domestic terrorism, and political violence.”
In addition, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida has called for Greene to be stripped of her committee assignments, including her spot on the Education committee, which Democrats say she’s unfit for given her belief the Sandy Hook and Parkland massacres were hoaxes.
Greene has become an absolute lightning rod since taking office last month.
Not only did she file articles of impeachment against Joe Biden for crimes committed by Donald Trump one day after Biden took office, but she accused Nancy Pelosi of exposing her to COVID when she (Greene) refused to wear a mask, and she threw a hissy fit about having to go through a metal detector to enter the U.S. Capitol building.
On top of all that, she has pushed the false narrative that the November election was rigged against Trump and continues to insist Biden is an illegitimate president. The day after the insurrection, she told an interviewer, “it was a hard thing we did yesterday, but I wouldn’t do anything else.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he plans to meet with Greene this week to talk about her recent behavior and the negative attention she’s bringing to the Republican Party, though he hasn’t said whether he plans to actually discipline her for anything.
As for Greene, she remains defiant. Over the weekend she tweeted that she had a “great call” with her “all time favorite POTUS, President Trump” and that she “won’t back down” or apologize for anything she’s ever done.
I had a GREAT call with my all time favorite POTUS, President Trump!
I’m so grateful for his support and more importantly the people of this country are absolutely 100% loyal to him because he is 100% loyal to the people and America First.

This is who Republicans are now.
The GOP leader in the House gave her good committee assignments and is engaged with her.
“This is who the Republicans are now?!?!” Once upon a time I was a proud Republican. Then I saw how Republican events were attended by white supremacists, Nazis, the KKK, skinheads and ultra conservative religionists. I saw the direction the party was going so I left. When did this happen? 1980 when Ronald Reagan was running for President.
But the republicans are dropping out of the party quicker than you can say republican. Tens of thousands have dropped out since the riot and since she got into congress. They’ve either switched to democrat or became unaffilated because they don’t want any part of this party anymore. So we can just sit back and watch them slowly destroy their own party, its only a matter of time.
yeah but shut up, cam is super smart. he’s got it ALL figured out. just do what cam says.
“Tens of thousands” ditching the Republican Party. Out of the 70 million who happily voted for Trump. It’s not all that reassuring.
I was a Republican until 1980 (dating myself, here) but left the party when Reagan got the nomination instead of John Anderson. (Hell, even Bush 1 would have been preferable.) It was obvious then which way the party was heading, and they’ve proven my worry, since then. I haven’t voted for a Republican since, and now I never will.
Dave22, yes, it is true many are leaving the party officially, but you can damn well bet that they are still going to vote with the party… on everything.
Good luck to them. Hope they can yank the skank from office. It’s very hard to expel a member of congress by their peers though. Best bet would be a recall or the GOP asking her to resign. The idiots who elected her won’t ever recall and I can’t see her being asked to resign or even agreeing to. Best case is that she gets removed from the committee. Or Trump offers her a position.
Hah! “yank the skank” should be the new rallying cry and then followed up in pure harmony with “Lock her up!”
The rest of the Republican representatives don’t seem to understand the harm to them by associating with her. She’s going to drag down the whole party. Lots of us who used to split our tickets will never vote Republican again.
Actually, I think they do…but they’re at a loss as to how to handle her. Republicans are kind of afraid of whom she represents…and there are so many more of these legitimately crazy people coming into Congress–there isn’t any real conservative agenda with these people (like any insurrectionist from any Central American country)–it’s just get mad, take over, and then steal.
She is a vile, evil, harm causing creature that should not be allowed to serve the public. She clearly has nothing but violence on her mind, and needs to be removed. What a shame it is, when lunacy drives a party.
I wish David Hogg had turned around and decked the bitch when she harassed him a couple of years ago. She’s vile and I hope she steps into the street in front of a bus. Horrible person she is. One day someone will say enough is enough and let her have it.
Nobody plays the “victim card” more readily and with more whiny gusto that a right winger! Had he done anything but ignore her she would have been to the police in a second and to the media immediately afterward it would have been “all I was doing is exercising my legitimate first amendment rights in a peaceful fashion and this violent radical assaulted me! Wahhhhh!!”
Then the “bullying left” bull would have been all over every right wing blog and media outlet.
its so easy to get sucked into that hate, part of me would have liked to see david turn around and holler back, “what makes you think I aint packin’ too, biatch?” but then you would be down in the gutter with them, but it would be nice to make her think for even a second, whaaaat?
If I was to threaten any of my co-workers or anyone on the street with death I would be immediately fired or arrested. Please tell me why she has more rights than anyone else in the country?
I cannot imagine she was voted into congress and assigned to an education committee? Geesh! How bad are the GOPs? Terrible!
I blame voters ignorant, backwards and paranoid enough to vote for her. It’s nuts.
The walls may close in, but watch the Republicans in Congress attach chains and haul those walls right back out again.
I’ll believe there will be consequences when I see those consequences.
The QOP is imploding thanks to violent, lying #MAGATerrorist Qarens like Taylor-Greene, Cawthorn, Crenshaw, Boebert, Hawley, Cruz, and Tangerine Hitler Himself. Please don’t expel her: love having this unhinged 9/11 truther kook as the face of the right.
Way too many voters on the right see her as the face of “enlightened patriotism”, and sincere Christianity.
Their electoral college distribution as relates to the next presidential election is too dangerous to allow mouthpieces for the anti-American drivel they pass off as patriotism to retain access to the bullhorn of public office.
Her and her Cro-Magnon cronies are ultimately too dangerous to remain un challenged in every way possible.
MARGARINE GANGreene is now the R*PEubliC*NT Party.
This gunQunt represents all that they are or ever will be again.
She is delusional if she thinks Trump is “100% loyal” to her or anyone else. The only person Trump is 100% loyal to is himself.
There will always be stupid people like her who want to bask in the glow from some deranged person who doesn’t give an iota about them.
Who knows? Pence might try to get back in Trump’s grace.
MTG . . . the GOP’s answer to the Democrats’ AOC!!!!!!
Fascist Nazi-Barbie represents the 14th Congressional District of Georgia – a heavily staunchly republican stronghold populated by toothless mutated inbreds. The rest of GA did not endorse her. Google her scandals – absolutely repugnant.
Dump the dirty skunt
She is a garbage person.
I had to laugh at her post about Trump staying 100% loyal to his supporters which we all know is bullshit. Ask all the rioters who are in federal custody who tried to overthrow the government for him only to have him NOT pardon them. He only USES people and if they arent doing something for him he is out of there. This woman is dangerous and the GOP is just showing its true colors – ANTI-AMERICAN and it has been for decades. They are against all Americans voting which is anti democracy
White, Christianist nut case. Need I say more?
LOCK HER UP ? Get rid of the sc*m!
Comparing MTG to AOC in any way is preposterous. It’s also unfair to compare a poor dumb alien from Mars who still hasn’t adjusted to humans on Earth with a Congresswoman from NY, albeit a hyper one.
Nothing is going to happen to this white supremacist bc she’s a vocal supporter of Donald Chump. Unfortunately that’s the state of the world we live in now. Ppl like her and Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are catering to the lowest of the lows
I keep hearing about how they don’t want to cross trump or upset this green Congresswomen regardless of how dangerous or reckless they are out of fear of alienating either of their bases. I’m sorry but what sad shape the gop is in because they are now just afraid and jumping at their own shadows rather than standing up for democracy and to the racist xenophobia, homophobic idjits. Sad sad sad
Cam you are right…Let’s not forget the Re-PUBE-LICKINS will never go after their NO Matter What. They are too afraid of the Liar in Chief and their crazy lunatic conspiracy drinking base. So let’s see Pelosi and the Dems in congress will do it as usual and the GOP can go back to their base and say hey we didn’t do it Pelosi and the Dems did it… All I know is average US citizen said they wanted to execute a US congressperson let alone the Speaker the troops would be at our doors arresting no questions asked???
As an outsider looking in it is frightening that, in the most powerful country in the world, there were enough people so stupid that they would vote for a nut case like her.
I’ll believe she’s going when she’s gone…and, hopefully, in prison, where she belongs. She supported sedition and threatened a school-shooting survivor. She should not be in Congress, especially since she likes to carry guns.
BTW, Harvey Milk and George Moscone were killed by a fellow city supervisor, not some freak off the street. She and Lauren Boebert are both dangerous to Democrats. They need to be expelled from the House.
So you ‘won’t back down for anything you’ve done’?? Um…you already have by deleting posts…idiot. #Losing
Strange that the interview clip that has been posted is being conducted by her English equivalent, Katie Hopkins. She is one of the most reviled figures to have emerged in the UK over the past couple of years, so happy that she’s turned up on your doorstep, she’ll easily get lost in the myriad millions of like minded right-wing fanatics that call the US home, please give her a Green Card!
