Marjorie Taylor Greene and the Liberal Clown Show

Love her or hate her, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a Congressional lightening rod. Because of that, liberals are trying to keep her off the ballot in a Georgia Republican primary next month.

 

Marjorie Taylor Greene: Insurrectionist!

A group calling themselves “Free Speech for People” insist that Greene (or “MTG” if you prefer) tried to cause an insurrection on January 6 at the Capitol. Therefore, she violated her oath of office, and should be disqualified from running for Congress — probably ever again:

“This is a serious case that the voters who we represent have brought in order to offer proof that their United States representative seeking re-election, Marjorie Taylor Greene, having taken the oath to support the Constitution, then broke that oath and engaged in insurrection.”

Okay. So what constitutional law did she violate?

It’s a little-known section of the 14th Amendment which came from the Reconstruction era and kept former Confederates from ever running for state or federal office. It reads, in part:

“… no person shall” hold “any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath” to “support the Constitution,” had then “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

So was Marjorie Taylor Greene breaking into the Capitol during the riot? No, she wasn’t. In fact, MTG was hiding in the hallways after rioters broke down the doors.

But, but … she said “1776” in an interview with Newsmax, saying that challenging the 2020 election was “our 1776 moment.” Apparently that’s code word for insurrection or something. Even though she also pointed out that 1776 is on the state seal of Georgia.

MTG also found that time when Nancy Pelosi used “1776” in her call to impeach Donald Trump. Does that make Pelosi an insurrectionist, too? Maybe she used it as a code word to launch the BLM riots in 2020. Gasp!

Pelosi no more intended to start those riots by using “1776” any more than MTG used that term to start the riots on January 6.

 

MTG Faces a Clown Show

On Friday, Marjorie Taylor Greene appeared before a court in Atlanta, GA, during which she acted “hostile,” according to the Associated Press.

Well, wouldn’t you be hostile if you had to listen to this codswallop for hours on end? Where Ron Fein, the attorney for the ironically named “Free Speech for People,” called your use of “1776” a dog whistle for insurrectionists? And then made you watch a clip of the movie Independence Day to prove you stole a line from that film? Supposedly MTG used Bill Pullman’s line that humanity “will not go quietly into the night” to spur insurrection.

I’m not kidding:

“Well, that’s something that you borrowed, from a movie script, right? You borrowed that line from the movie Independence Day, right?”

“No.” (MTG, as well as the courtroom, laughs.)

“Well, let’s go to the tape. This is the one about the aliens come to the world, and then there’s a big battle on July Fourth to ward them off. And there’s a scene in that movie where the president addresses the fighter pilots who are about to go into battle. Do you remember that?” 

“I don’t remember, but you’re going to show us.”

And show the court he did. In the words of Bugs Bunny, What a maroon!

Is Marjorie Taylor Greene a bomb-thrower in Congress? Absolutely. But do these examples prove that she tried to foment an overturn of the government on January 6? Absolutely not. This stuff is just plain silly.

 

The Fate of Marjorie Taylor Greene

I have an idea: how about let’s forget this clown show and let the people of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s district decide if they want her back?

I know, radical idea, right?

In her Georgia District 14, MTG is facing a primary challenger who is nipping at her heels. According to the Federal Election Commission, Jennifer Strahan, a healthcare advisory firm executive with no political experience, has raked in lots of Republican cash. Does Strahan have enough to unseat MTG? Well, maybe, maybe not. After all, Greene has raised over $8 million, more than any other incumbent in the Peach State. Apparently lots of her constituents really like Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Dan Abrams, an attorney who hosts a program on NewsNation, is no conservative. But while he’s no fan of MTG, Abrams agrees that it’s up to the voters to decide her fate. Plus, he adds, using that Reconstruction-era reasoning is quite the stretch, too.

In addition, Matt Vespa of Townhall writes:

“MTG is a firebrand. She’s a bomb thrower, and every now and then, she does post something that’s a tad extreme. That’s not illegal. That’s not disqualifying. There are these things called elections. If you don’t like her, vote her out. That’s the logical route here, not a lawsuit.”

Frankly, if I lived in Georgia’s 14th district, I’d vote for MTG’s challenger. I don’t particularly like Greene’s shenanigans. She reminds me a bit too much of some of the lightweights I saw during the Tea Party years who were — well, let’s just say, “not ready for prime time.” And it takes more than just “owning the libs” to be an effective legislator.

But it’s not up to me, nor to any Democrats who are frantically digging up dirt to keep her out of Congress. Let the people of her district vote to keep her, or to vote her out.

    Liberals are afraid of MTG, plain and simple. They will to harass her in an attempt to downplay her significance in opposing the anti-America stands that they take. Hopefully, she will remain stronger than her critics…and I think she will !!.

  • Bruce says:

    When are REAL people going to stop calling criminally malicious, totalitarian sociopaths “liberals”?

    Just wondering.

  • Had some time over dinner to take a look at Strahan (I’m not in Georgia, so not a burning issue for me).

    Color me NOT impressed. A “Christian, mother, and business owner.” That’s nice – so is MTG. What does she bring to the table? Two “stances” on her campaign web page. One on Ukraine, standard boilerplate. Bare mention of energy security. One on Israel, again, standard boilerplate. One bit is support for a bill that is about to be passed in Congress – with bipartisan support. A bill that is the usual garbage about “bilateral Israeli-Palestinian negotiations” to reach a two-state “solution.” Right… Not a word in there about the jihadi terrorists.

    “Business” – consultant to the healthcare industry, with nice academic degrees. MTG’s family, if I recall correctly, is in construction. If not that, in a business that, you know, actually MAKES something, not endless talk and advice.

    NOTHING about massive overspending that causes inflation. NOTHING about the invasion of the US at the southern border. NOTHING about the so-called “healthcare” industry that has massively failed to cope with CoViD. NOTHING about the completely dysfunctional “government healthcare” mess.

    Oh, and NOTHING about actually showing up to VOTE on bills – something that MTG does do, and works with other Representatives to force ALL Representatives to do. No more bills passed by a slightly louder dozen people on the House floor.

    Certainly, vote for a RINO like Strahan wherever you are, Ms. Hirsch – I shall not break out even the smallest violin when they “work across the aisle” to stab you in the back yet again.

    • Kim Hirsch says:

      We have a terrific candidate running in my GOP congressional district whom I support, along with great candidates for AG and Governor, so I won’t be losing any sleep about your tiny violin.

      • So, tell your audience what your “great candidates” have said they will do in office? Better yet, just give us their names – then we can look up their promises, along with (if they have held office before) the likelihood of their actually doing them.

        • Kim Hirsch says:

          That’s your problem — you figure it out. My post was not about Strahan; it was about the stupid charges against MTG. I’m not responding to your demands just because you’re triggered about my lack of adequate fealty to MTG.

          I’m done here.

          • Well, guess that I am, too. Aside from one piece of advice: Learn to stay focused on your subject. Then people won’t make you uncomfortable and defensive about your irrelevant side comments.

  • rbj1 says:

    Will not go gentle into that good night is a play on a line from Dylan Thomas’ poem: “ Do not go gentle into that good night”

  • Bruce says:

    That Dylan Thomas poem make a LOT more sense in ite entirety:

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning they
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
    Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
    And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
    Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    And you, my father, there on the sad height,
    Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
