Marjorie Taylor Greene: CHRIST, What A Vile, Bigoted A**hole
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is filth. There's simply no way to sugarcoat it, the woman is disgusting.
First, this vile congresswoman led the GOP's opposition to the LGBTQ Equality Act in Congress yesterday, a bill that would expand the protections of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The Supreme Court already suggested as much in June when Justice Neil Gorsuch authored the 6-3 decision holding that firing gays and lesbians because of their sexual orientation violates the ban on discrimination "because of sex." And indeed schools are already interpreting that ruling and subsequent decisions as mandating that they have to stop blocking the bathroom door and let trans kids pee.
But Margie isn't much of a "reader," apparently. And she may not have heard of the Establishment Clause, but she's sure the Bible -- her interpretation of it, specifically -- is the REAL law in US America.
"God created us male and female. In his image, he created us," she said on the House floor yesterday. "The Equality Act that we are to vote on this week destroys God's creation. It also completely annihilates women's rights and religious freedoms. It can be handled completely different to stop discrimination without destroying women's rights, little girls' rights in sports and religious freedom, violating everything we hold dear in God's creation."
But wait, there's more! Not content to proselytize on the floor of the House, she went on to misgender Democratic Rep. Marie Newman's transgender child.
Here's Rep. Newman talking about her daughter.
Without the Equality Act, millions of Americans like my daughter can be denied housing, education, and more simply… https://t.co/NQc7PDf6bS— Congresswoman Marie Newman (@Congresswoman Marie Newman)1614130344.0
In response to that, Greene quote-tweeted Newman, saying, "As mothers, we all love and support our children. But your biological son does NOT belong in my daughters' bathrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams."
Rep. Newman put a trans pride flag outside her office, which is across from Rep. Greene's.
Our neighbor, @RepMTG, tried to block the Equality Act because she believes prohibiting discrimination against tran… https://t.co/mhRVdj53qo— Congresswoman Marie Newman (@Congresswoman Marie Newman)1614194929.0
And Greene responded by sticking up a poster proclaiming "There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE 'Trust The Science!'" Because apparently Rep. Greene's God wants her to make sure Rep. Newman can't bring her daughter to work without subjecting her to harassment by a grown adult politician.
We will quit now before we have to banhammer ourselves. But also, oh, hey, lookie here, turns out Congressperson Bigotbritches may have another new problem, besides how she is a traitor to basic human decency. Over at CNN, they're reporting that one of her longtime pals, social media shit-stirrer Anthony Aguero, was among the rioters who invaded the Capitol on January 6. Does Margie think she's going to hide from CNN's KFile by deleting her old posts? Spoiler Alert: She is not.
Greene and Aguero have worked closely together over the years on causes such as immigration and the border wall and have attended pro-Trump rallies together. In many since-deleted videos saved by CNN's KFile, Greene repeatedly calls Aguero "amazing" and a "friend." On social media, Aguero has called Greene "one of my closest friends."
"A message was sent," Aguero said in the video streamed live on January 6 while walking away from the Capitol on Pennsylvania Avenue following the riot. "These politicians are not going to continue to get away with the abuse as they've been doing. We will continue to press on these individuals."
"The National Guard has just been called in," he continued. "A woman was shot in the face earlier. There was blood all over the floor. I recorded it for y'all. I could not go live during the whole event because the signal was either jammed purposely or there was just too many, too many people out there. Guys, I was able to make it inside the chambers and I have footage that I'm going to provide for you guys as we made our way in there."
Here's a photo tweeted by Aguero (bottom right) with Greene at a pro-Trump march on November 14.
While Greene has falsely suggested the 1/6 invaders were not Trump supporters, her pal Aguero tells a different story.
"We were all there. It was not Antifa and it was not BLM. It was Trump supporters that did that yesterday. I'm the first to admit it, being one myself," he said in a January 7 video captured by CNN.
In response to questions, Aguero told CNN he had been inside the Capitol solely as an "independent journalist," although he posted video online praising the invaders. "We need to stand up for our country. So patriots stand up for their country and they come out here to physically try to take back their house. The House of the people," he said.
As for Rep. Greene, Aguero offered his unvarnished endorsement. "I stand with people like Marjorie Taylor Greene proudly," he said. "That woman has more courage than most of the men that were in that building. No, not most. That woman has more courage than every single man that was in that Capitol yesterday."
Well she's got more something. But we probably wouldn't call it courage.
