Gop Leaders Want To Kick Out Marjorie Taylor Greene

Republican leaders recently pressured House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to kick out Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for her controversial pronouncements comparing the covid-19 protocols and vaccine initiatives to the Nazi Party’s systematic genocide of 6 million Jews in the second world war.

“You know, we can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany,” Greene stated during her guesting on right-wing network Real America’s Voice.

In his personal twitter account, Rep. Adam Kinzinger posted a reaction saying “Just stop. This is demented and dangerous. There is no comparison.”

There is no comparison indeed to the utter lack of humanity that Adolf Hitler and his evil Axis cohorts perpetrated during their reign of terror in Germany.

“I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: while we cannot stop her from calling herself a Republican, we can and should refuse to let her caucus with the @HouseGOP,” added Kinzinger.

Earlier this week, top House and Senate leaders berated Greene for her reference to the holocaust. A couple of weeks ago, Rep. Elise Stefanik was quoted saying “equating mask wearing and vaccines to the Holocaust belittles the most significant human atrocities ever committed.” Even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Whip Steve Scalise chimed in and slammed the comparison.

Rep. Nancy Mace denounced her former classmate as well, but stated that there is no need to oust Greene from the conference. 

“Everyone has the right to their free speech, no matter how horrible many of us may find what they say. Voters decide who goes to Congress — not other members or the media. I condemned remarks from [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.)] comparing the border to concentration camps, so I believe it’s important to be consistent and to call out ignorant remarks like this regardless of the party of the person who says them,” Mace elaborated.

Even though everyone is united in condemning Green’s remarks, no one is taking actions to punish her or even kick her out of the House Republican Conference. 

“We don’t have the votes. “Without leadership — and the GOP conference has none across the board — she will continue to be a spectacle that gets clicks and the political industrial complex will make millions off of her. There is no incentive to shut her down or kick her out. She’s being used, and her and their egos love it,” stated one Republican who is in favor of ousting Greene.

Greene doesn’t seem perturbed by her party mates’ ganging up on her and even defended her comments, saying she was referring to the early initiatives by the Nazis and not the holocaust itself.
