On Friday, sick and evil POS in the media attacked me with phrases I never said or wrote.— Marjorie Taylor Greene ?? (@mtgreenee) April 17, 2021
They released a staff level draft proposal from an outside group that I hadn’t read.
The scum and liars in the media are calling me a racist by taking something out of context.
Marjorie Taylor Greene says it is a draft proposal that a staffer was working on. The libs were successfully triggered though.

A new America First Caucus — led by @mtgreenee and @RepGosar — is recruiting people to join based on “Anglo-Saxon political traditions” architectural style that “befits the progeny of European architecture”

America is built on the idea that we are all created equal and success is earned through honest, hard work. It isn’t built on identity, race, or religion.— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) April 16, 2021
The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles.
Republicans believe in equal opportunity, freedom, and justice for all. We teach our children the values of tolerance, decency and moral courage. Racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil. History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate.— Liz Cheney (@Liz_Cheney) April 16, 2021
Marjorie Taylor Greene is taking lib owning to the next level.
The corporate media attempted to define her as the “crazy QAnon lady” and started a campaign to have her expelled from Congress before she was even seated. Marjorie Taylor Greene was only warming up though and skillfully used all the negative publicity and attacks from progressives to boost her name recognition and to raise an incredible $3.2 million dollars in the first quarter of 2021.
In one of my podcasts with Richard Spencer, we discussed Marjorie Taylor Greene and QAnon. I recall saying at the time that Greene had a little twinkle in her eye and a trollish vibe. I had noticed that she was defending herself as a “White woman” from all the attacks on Twitter. She was bringing her race into it and no one else seemed to notice that she was defending the White race. It struck me as significant though because I was seeing evidence of a spike in White racial consciousness in the polls.
In the months that followed, Marjorie Taylor Greene made news by calling for a total moratorium on immigration. She denied that our “trans girls” are women. In late February, Rep. Paul Gosar and former congressman Steve King attended and spoke at AFPAC, which was highly significant. The corporate media screamed “racism” and “white supremacy” and amazingly no one cared. Most recently, Tucker Carlson came out and broke the ice on demographic replacement and the ADL screamed “racism” and “white supremacy” and “anti-Semitism” and no one cared either. Tucker doubled down on demographic replacement and even brought Our Greatest Ally into the conversation. The term “anti-White” has also entered mainstream discourse and is being used with greater frequency on television.
It is almost like public opinion has radically shifted since the George Floyd riots and the rollout of systematic racism and edgy Republicans are testing the waters before jumping into the pool.
“WASHINGTON (AP) — Hard-right House Republicans on Friday were discussing forming an America First Caucus, which one document described as championing “Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and warning that mass immigration was putting the “unique identity” of the U.S. at risk.
The Associated Press obtained a copy of the paper, which was first reported by Punchbowl News, a news outlet covering Capitol Hill. The AP could not independently confirm the organization’s origins or current status, but Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said he was joining and indicated that fellow conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., was behind it.
“The America First Caucus (AFC) exists to promote Congressional policies that are to the long-term benefit of the American nation,” it begins. It says the group aims to “follow in President Trump’s footsteps, and potentially step on some toes and sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation.” …
Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told reporters he was considering joining the caucus and said, “Yes,” when asked if Greene and Gosar were involved with it. …”
“Washington (CNN) – Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is launching a new “America First” caucus, her office confirmed Friday, bringing together a group of far-right lawmakers known for their controversial rhetoric.
Punchbowl News obtained a flier promoting the new caucus, which calls for a “common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and pushes a series of conspiracy theories about election integrity. The flier also outlined a nativist argument warning that “mass immigration” poses a threat to “the long-term existential future of America as a unique country with a unique culture and a unique identity.”
A spokesperson for Greene, Nick Dyer, complained about the initial draft of the flier being leaked but confirmed to CNN in a statement that plans were in the works to form the group, which will be, “announced to the public very soon.”
The latest news is that Marjorie Taylor Greene is behind the effort to start an “America First Caucus” which will focus on preserving our “Anglo-Saxon political traditions.” Paul Gosar, Matt Gaetz and Louie Gohmert are interested in the group and considering joining the new caucus.
Yes, this is still technically fully within the boundaries of civic nationalism, but they are clearly pushing at the edge and testing the boundaries and baiting the libs again. The libs are going to attack the America First Caucus and throw a big fit about it and call it “racist” and “white supremacist” and “Jim Crow on steroids” and so forth, but stoking culture war outrage is the whole point of doing it and each one of these small steps is steadily confirming that what used to be the “mainstream” has died. Everyone hates the “journalists” now and the so-called “watchdog organizations” like the SPLC or the ADL.
Kevin McCarthy responded to the news by putting out a perfunctory limped dick tweet about “nativist dog whistles.” The overwhelming majority of Republican voters and a huge number of Independent voters are “nativists” now. Nativism is the only thing that is propping up the Republican Party due to the unpopularity of its antiquated economic policy agenda. Whether it is immigration, political correctness, censorship or crime, the so-called “far right” issues are far more popular than the Republican Party.
As for this “party of Lincoln” bullshit, virtually all of the Yankees whose ancestors voted for Abraham Lincoln are Democrats now while the people whose ancestors voted for his opponent the Little Giant Stephen Douglas are Republicans now. The people whose ancestors supported Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson and The Democracy of the antebellum era and who fought for the Confederacy and who voted for William Jennings Bryan and Woodrow Wilson and FDR and George Wallace are Republicans now. It might still be called the Republican Party, but the voters have swapped places.
The new Republican Party that is emerging is what used to be the Democratic Party of the early 20th century before Harry Truman and LBJ blew it up over the civil rights issue.
Note: I’m not sure where she is going with this, but Marjorie Taylor Greene has been growing on me. I wasn’t a fan of her early work. She is becoming the AOC of the Right with her own Squad.
