Why are General Motors and JUUL helping finance Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Quckoo for Cocoa Puffs)?
GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a QAnon adherent who also expressed support for killing FBI agents and Speaker Pelosi. Why is she still in Congress, and why did GM and JUUL help her get elected?
By now, you’ve probably heard of Marjorie Taylor Greene. She’s one of two new QAnon-conspiracy-supporting Republican members of Congress — the other is Lauren Boebert of Colorado. And while Boebert is bad — think a younger, crazier Sarah Palin — Greene is from another planet entirely.
And you thought Marjorie Taylor Greene’s QAnon beliefs were bad
Initially, folks were worried about Greene because of her QAnon affinity, which she now denies. (QAnon, you’ll recall, is the conspiracy theory that there’s a secret international cabal of anti-Trump Satan-worshipping pedophiles run by the Clintons, George Soros, and Oprah, among others.) But now, being conspiracy-curious is the least of her concerns.
Greene has a long history of cuckoo. In addition to embracing QAnon, Greene has said that Muslim members of Congress should “go back to the Middle East.” She has also “suggested that Muslims do not belong in government; thinks black people ‘are held slaves to the Democratic Party’; called George Soros, a Jewish Democratic megadonor, a Nazi; and said she would feel ‘proud’ to see a Confederate monument if she were black because it symbolizes progress made since the Civil War.”
Marjorie Taylor Greene voiced support for assassinating Pelosi, Obama, Hillary and FBI agents
But this week, things got markedly worse when CNN’s KFile discovered that Greene had “liked” Facebook comments calling for US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to be assassinated. Commenters were discussing Pelosi being removed from the speakership, and one wrote: “a bullet to the head would be quicker.” Greene “liked” that specific comment, which typically means you agree with it. She also liked a second comment about Pelosi that read: “through removal or death, doesn’t matter, as long as she goes.”
"She's a traitor to our country, she's guilty of treason," Greene says in the video, which she posted on Facebook at the time. "She took an oath to protect American citizens and uphold our laws. And she gives aid and comfort to our enemies who illegally invade our land. That's what treason is. And by our law representatives and senators can be kicked out and no longer serve in our government. And it's, uh, it's a crime punishable by death is what treason is. Nancy Pelosi is guilty of treason."
Also this week, CNN found that on her Facebook page, Greene also liked comments about executing FBI agents.
Greene’s defense is that lots of people ran her Facebook page: "Over the years, I've had teams of people manage my pages. Many posts have been liked. Many posts have been shared. Some did not represent my views. Especially the ones that CNN is about to spread across the internet," she tweeted.
Greene has also defended herself by noting that these actions occurred before she joined Congress earlier this month. Several of these incidents happened in 2018 and 2019. It is not clear how that makes these views any more palatable.
Marjorie Taylor Greene’s other beliefs are equally horrifying
I did a little more digging, and Wikipedia has a horrific summary of Greene’s other views — it’s far worse than I even realized when I started writing this:
In a 2017 video posted to Facebook, Greene expressed doubt that the perpetrator of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, a large-scale incident she believes was intended as an attack on the right to bear arms, acted alone. She believes the 2019 Christchurch mosque shootings in New Zealand were a "false flag" for the same end. She also called George Soros, a Jewish businessman and Holocaust survivor who is frequently the target of anti-semitic conspiracy theories, a Nazi. She promoted the antisemitic conspiracy theory that Soros collaborated with the Nazis and is "trying to continue what was not finished."
In 2018, Greene expressed support for a conspiracy theory that a plane did not hit the Pentagon during the September 11 attacks, saying that "it's odd there's never any evidence shown for a plane in the Pentagon," despite video evidence. On another occasion, at a Conservative conference in 2018, she said 9/11 was part of a plot by the United States government. Following a report on her comments by Media Matters for America in August 2020, Greene said on Twitter: "Some people claimed a missile hit the Pentagon. I now know that is not correct. The problem is our government lies to us so much to protect the Deep State, it's hard sometimes to know what is real and what is not." She has claimed Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staff member, was murdered by the MS-13 street gang on behalf of Barack Obama.
In a 2018 Facebook post found by Media Matters, Greene agreed the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida was an organized "false flag" operation. In another post, she agreed that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was also a false flag operation. In another Facebook post later in 2018 she wrote: "I am told that Nancy Pelosi tells Hillary Clinton several times a month that 'we need another school shooting' in order to persuade the public to want strict gun control."…. [David]Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland shooting and a gun control advocate, has been called "#littleHitler" by Greene…. [S]he calls him a "coward" and claims he is funded by George Soros.
Another 2018 Facebook post showed Greene agreeing with a conspiracy theory known as Frazzledrip, that asserts a video exists of Hillary Clinton and her assistant Huma Abedin murdering a child in a satanic ritual and Clinton later ordered a "hit" on a police officer to cover it up.
Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks rich evil Jews may start forest fires from space
Greene also believes that a laser from space, possibly controlled by the Rothschilds (i.e., rich evil Jews), started the deadly 2018 California wildfire:
Marjorie Taylor Greene on why she doesn’t like “retards”
This video speaks for itself:
Marjorie Taylor Greene badgered a teen mass-shooting survivor
Then today, we had the latest bombshell. Gun safety advocate, Fred Guttenberg, whose teenager daughter Jaime was murdered in the Parkland school shooting massacre, just tweeted a video that appears to show Greene hounding and badgering Parkland survivor David Hogg while he was lobbying on Capitol Hill shortly after the mass shooting in 2018. The woman in the video appears to have an indentifical face, and clothing (including necklace), to Greene.
Here is a comparison of the woman in the video (left) versus a known photo of Marjorie Taylor Greene (right). Note the jacket, top, necklace, face and hair:
Hold GM, JUUL & NATCA accountable for helping fund Greene’s election
What do you do with this? We can start with Greene’s donors. According to Open Secrets, “the House Freedom Fund, a PAC associated with Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, spent $44,000 backing Greene and delivered $78,000 in earmarked contributions to her campaign.” And who were among the donors to the House Freedom Fund, enabling them to fund Marjorie Taylor Greene?
Feel free to use the Twitter links above to ask JUUL, GM and the Air Traffic Controllers why they are helping finance a candidate who thinks FBI agents, and Nancy Pelosi, should be put to death.
