This post is dedicated to WC’s birding buddy, D.H., America’s Tallest Birder. He used to be a Republican, but folks like this have changed his mind.
WC wrote this post back in June but held off posting it. Greene appears to be an attention-seeker, inclined to say outrageous, over the top things about political issues simply to get the attention that being outrageous brings. WC thought that Georgia voters might think better of their previous electoral decision.
WC was wrong, She was handily re-elected. So WC dug out this old blog draft, dusted it off a bit, and offers it as a reminder that democracies can be very, very foolish sometimes.
Only seven? But there are so many to choose from . . .
Greene on Jewish Space Lasers. Rep. Greene on the cause of California’s 2018 Camp Fire:
The idea is clean energy to replace coal and oil. If they are beaming the sun’s energy back to Earth, I’m sure they wouldn’t ever miss a transmitter receiving station right??!! I mean mistakes are never made when anything new is invented. What would that look like anyway? A laser beam or light beam coming down to Earth I guess. Could that cause a fire? Hmmm, I don’t know. hope not! That wouldn’t look so good for PG&E, Rothschild Inc, Solaren or Jerry Brown who sure does seem fond of PG&E.Marjorie Taylor Greene Facebook Post November 17, 2018
Greene on Sharia Law.
“Islamic nations under Sharia law are places where men have sex with little boys, little girls, multiple women and marry their sisters and their cousins.”
Greene on the Election of Muslims to Congress. Rep. Greene describing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.):
There is an Islamic invasion into our government offices right now. You saw after midterm elections what we saw so many Muslims elected. I don’t know the exact number but there were quite a few. If you want Islam and Sharia law, you stay over there in the Middle East. You stay there, and you go to Mecca and do all your thing. And, you know what, you can have a whole bunch of wives, or goats, or sheep, or whatever you want. You stay over there. But in America, see, we’ve made it this great, great country. We don’t want it messed up.Marjorie Taylor Greene in a Facebook video
Greene on electric vehicles and Gay Rights.
We’re gonna drill oil right here in the USA. And you know what, Pete Buttigieg can take his electric vehicles and his bicycles, and he and his husband can stay out of our girls’ bathrooms.Marjorie Taylor Greene, speaking at a Trump rally
Greene on Pedophile Democrats. She fully supports QAnon’s claims of a satanist, pedophile cult headquarters out of a pizza parlor.
I’m very excited about that now there’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president to do itMarjorie Taylor Greene in a YouTube video
Greene on due process. From a Facebook conversation with a supporter in 2018:
Supporter: “Now do we get to hang them ?? Meaning H[illary Clinton] & O[bama] ???
Greene: “Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off.”
Greene on electric-powered airplanes speaking at the Texas Youth Summit
“We’re saying, how are they gonna keep powering these electric airplanes, what are they gonna have, it’s like a spin class in a tube? Where they’ve got everybody riding spin cycles, and those mean nasty airline stewardesses that forced you to wear masks all the time on the plane…are they gonna be forcing you to like keep spinning to keep the airplane in the air? It’s absurd!”
Greene on LGBTQ1
“Probably in about four or five generations, no one will be straight anymore. Everyone will be either gay or trans or nonconforming or whatever the list of 50 or 60 different options there are.”
Without much effort, readers can probably find even stupider quotations; there’s no shortage of them. But these serve to illustrate WC’s point: the voters in the 14th District of Georgia think she is the best candidate, that she can most effectively represent them and their interests. Pretty damning.
1 Careful readers may note there are eight quotes, not seven. Because Marjorie Taylor Greene.
