Marjorie Taylor Greene Swatted Twice

You don’t have to like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). However, you should care that a sitting member of Congress was swatted not once, but twice. In one week, no less.

 

Swatting Marjorie Taylor Greene

Swatting, for those who are unaware, is the dangerous practice of calling 911 to falsely report a deadly crime in progress at the home of another person. Law enforcement officers then arrive at an unsuspecting victim’s home, ready to take on a menacing criminal. This can result in death, as it did in Wichita, KS, in 2017, when an online gamer set up a swat on his opponent. Only the swatter gave responders the wrong address, resulting in the death of an innocent man whom police thought was a threat.

Last week, someone who hates Marjorie Taylor Greene decided to send police after her, perhaps with the goal of frightening her. Or perhaps getting her killed.

In the first case, which occurred on Wednesday, police went to her home in Rome, GA, after they received a call about a man who had been shot in a bathtub. The female shooter, the caller said, was still in the home. Not only that, but multiple children were inside, too.

So police went to her home, and the situation was sorted out. But within hours, police received another call — this time with a computer-generated voice. The caller said they didn’t like MTG’s proposals to criminalize transgender surgeries and hormonal treatments for children.

And then someone swatted Marjorie Taylor Greene again on the following night. Someone had called a suicide hotline and claimed again that violence was taking place at Greene’s home. Once again, the caller said that it was because of her political views.

When Greene answered the door, an officer told her, “They did it again.”

In case her detractors would accuse her of lying, she tweeted security camera videos of one of the incidents.

Haters Gonna Hate

After Thursday night’s event, Greene appeared on the War Room with host Steve Bannon, and he asked her if the Left was trying to assassinate her. She replied:

“Yes. They are trying to have me murdered, they are trying to get me killed.”
“I’m trying to protect children from the Left’s perverted and evil ideology that is trying to maim and mutilate children.”

So who incited these attacks on Marjorie Taylor Greene?

Interesting that on the day before the initial swat, MTG’s Democrat opponent tweeted this:

Meanwhile, other Leftists are trying to blame the alt-right.

Supposedly the suspect had claimed to be someone using the handle “Altistic Right,” and that they were a Kiwi Farms user.

 

Did Kiwi Farms Target Marjorie Taylor Greene?

Did alt-right trolls at Kiwi Farms target MTG for swatting? It doesn’t make sense.

First, some background: Kiwi Farms (which I had never heard of prior to this story) is an internet platform for online trolls. In the past it has been blamed for violence, including the Christchurch mass shooting in New Zealand. Platform users have a history of swatting, doxxing, and harassing people whom they deem as lowlife (which they call “lolcows” — people they can “milk” for harassment, get it?). Their favorite targets appear to be minorities and transgender people.

So why MTG? It appears that they would support someone with her views. But now, as a result of the swatting, Greene is calling for Kiwi Farms to be taken down.

With her comments, Marjorie Taylor Greene may have initiated action against the platform. In fact, on Friday, Joshua Moon, owner of Kiwi Farms, issued a downtime announcement. Apparently internet service providers (ISPs) blackholed routes to the network.

He then complained:

“When a community of random anonymous nobodies can set up a forum and talk about a person candidly, where this control does not exist, it creates problems for influential people.”

“The opponents of this forum lie about its purpose and character. They misrepresent our speech as violence, our information as harassment, and our discussions as stalking … “

Moon went on:

“What I fear more than losing my site, being sued, or dealing with police is living in a world where fat eunuchs can groom little boys and girls into mutilating their bodies and taking drugs in secret, while normal people are not allowed to even discuss it.”

So it doesn’t make sense that someone at Kiwi Farms instigated MTG’s swatting. But it’s 2022, politics is rending the nation, the internet is crawling with sociopaths, and here we are.

 

This is Dangerous Territory

You may not particularly like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene; in truth, I’m not a fan of hers, although I would probably agree with most of her positions.

But that doesn’t matter.

What’s important is that somehow a sitting member of Congress — love her or not — was placed in danger by trolls who wish her harm. Maybe they’re LGBT activists, or maybe they’re members of the far alt-right. Who knows?

But swatting is not a prank, it’s potentially deadly for any victim, no matter their station in life. Authorities should prosecute those who pull off such stunts to the fullest extent possible. In the case of Marjorie Taylor Greene, this was an attempted assassination by cop.

    MTG scares/worries the lefties….Therefore, the Biden secret police keeps watch on her and attempts to thwart her at every opportunity. Sounds kinda like a third world communist country, doesn’t it ??

  • Politically Ambidextrous says:

    Thank goodness “red flag” laws would never be abused. Oh, no, never!
    Eliminating anonymity might solve some of this.

  • Cameron says:

    For the benefit of the little Epsilons that come here: If she was lying, the information would have already been leaked to the press. You know it and I know it.

  • GWB says:

    is the dangerous practice of calling 911 to falsely report a deadly crime in progress at the home of another person
    Also, using a bogus number, or faking the number of the person being ‘swatted’.

    When Greene answered the door, an officer told her, “They did it again.”
    At least they learned. A few police departments that might not have been the case.

    First, some background:
    And nothing in there demonstrates they are on the right. Absolutely nothing.

    Authorities should prosecute those who pull off such stunts to the fullest extent possible.
    Finding them is the hard part – spoofed VOIP numbers are easy, and 911 systems aren’t equipped to ferret them out. But, if you do find them? Attempted murder should be the only charge necessary. 20 years in the penitentiary will dissuade a lot of people.

      Didn’t say they are. As far as I’m concerned, the alt-right has no connection with my conservatism; i.e., the sort Russell Kirk wrote about. They’re a bunch of white nationalist anti-Semites as far as I know with no moral compass. Unfortunately progressives have placed them into our camp.

      Attempted murder should be the only charge necessary. 20 years in the penitentiary will dissuade a lot of people.

      Tyler Barriss, the “hit swatter” that one of the feuding gamers hired to make the swat call, is now serving 20 years in the federal pen in Phoenix. He’s scheduled to get out in 2035. Frankly, I think he should rot in prison, since he’s had a long history of making fake calls, including bomb threats. But that’s just me.

  • GWB says:

    Evidently a third time, as well.

    • Kim Hirsch says:

      Yeah, no. That’s where it gets tricky.

      The Post Millennial is the only site I found which reported three swatting events, although they provided no specific information about the third. They seem to conflate her discussion with Steve Bannon on his radio program with a third swatting event supposedly occurring on the 26th; however, she tweeted on the 25th she was going on his show that evening. So the attempt she discussed with Bannon was the second swat attempt on the 24th, not a third.
      MTG did tweet on the 27th that there was another call to have her swatted. That doesn’t mean the police came to her house, so it was not a swatting event.

      • GWB says:

        OK. I wasn’t exactly confident based on what was in the article.
        But a third try wouldn’t surprise me, either.
