CONSPIRACY theorist and Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has been caught-out supporting calls for the execution and assassination of political rivals – sparking demands among traditional conservatives and Republicans for her to be expelled.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a first-term Georgia Republican, repeatedly endorsed executing top Democratic politicians on social media before she was elected to Congress, including telling a follower who asked if they could hang former President Barack Obama that the “stage is being set.”
Ms. Greene liked a Facebook comment in January 2019 that said “a bullet to the head would be quicker” to remove Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and liked another about executing FBI agents.
After a Facebook follower asked Ms. Greene “Now do we get to hang them,” referring to Mr. Obama and Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential nominee, Ms. Greene responded: “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 has long been a staunch supporter of the debunked pro-Trump Conspiracy theory movement ‘Qanon’, and despite attempting to distance herself from being linked to such conspiracies, continues to post extreme and fact-absent views on social media.
Such was the opposition to Greene’s candidacy, that some senior members of her party openly supported her rival.
Influential members of The Republican Party are now demanding her expulsion, and an end to the hijacking of their party by Trumpism and right-wing conspiracy theorists.
