When people hold up their crazy card, it’s our job to see it. If we don’t look, well, we deserve what we get.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) expressed some “interesting” views in the past.
She wondered if a mass school shooting in Florida was a false flag event, where authorities stage a terrible event to gain support for something like gun control, she denied that terrorists flew a plane into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, and she supported the view that some California wildfires were started by a sun-powered laser in space controlled by a Jewish family.
Greene is free to think what she wants, and her constituents are free to elect her. But the leadership in the House of Representatives is also free to sideline Greene, and anyone else on either side of the aisle, from making important decisions about the direction of the country.
House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) chose not to remove Greene from committee assignments. Instead, he condemned her previous statements and demanded she apologize.
Yep, that’ll do it. Apologies always fix things like space lasers.
