Marjorie Taylor Greene is my favorite sitting member of Congress.
My first inkling that Marge was going to be a trailblazer who was going to push MAGA to the next level came in early 2021 when she sent out a revealing tweet aimed at Nancy Pelosi:
“If @SpeakerPelosi was the minority leader, she would pull every identity politics trick in the book to defend her member.
White, Woman, Wife, Mother, Christian, Conservative, Business Owner
These are the reasons they don’t want me on Ed & Labor.
It’s my identity & my values. …”
She publicly embraced her White identity.
Donald Trump never said anything as bold as this in four years as president. He never talked about White people until long after he had lost the 2020 election when he said that White people have “to go to the back of the line” to get the COVID vaccine at one of his 2021 rallies.
“There’s going to be a lot of investigations,” Marjorie Taylor Greene said, describing what she anticipates if the Republicans regain the House majority this November. “I’ve talked with a lot of members about this.”
It was early September, two months before the midterm elections, and Greene, the first-term congresswoman from Georgia, was sitting in a restaurant in Alpharetta, an affluent suburb of greater metropolitan Atlanta. Among the fellow Republicans with whom Greene said she had been speaking about these investigations was the House minority leader, Kevin McCarthy. Just a couple of weeks later, on Sept. 23, Greene sat directly behind McCarthy in a manufacturing facility in Monongahela, Pa., as he publicly previewed what a House Republican majority’s legislative agenda would look like. Among the topics she and her colleagues have discussed is the prospect of impeaching President Joe Biden, a pursuit Greene has advocated literally since the day after Biden took office, when she filed articles of impeachment accusing Obama’s vice president of having abused his power to benefit his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine. “My style would be a lot more aggressive, of course,” she told me, referring to McCarthy. “For him, I think the evidence needs to be there. But I think people underestimate him, in thinking he wouldn’t do it.” …
Greene once told me that when the Georgia G.O.P. establishment first encountered her in 2019, “They looked at me like I was a three-headed monster.” This was hardly the case anymore. Every Republican candidate in her state — and more across the country — seemed to be mimicking her. Georgia’s 10th Congressional District, to take just one example, had been vacated by the Republican incumbent Jody Hice and subsequently had a field of candidates that included three Greene wannabes. One was a demolition-company owner whose kickoff ad featured the candidate bashing various walls and doors with a sledgehammer while promising to “crush the woke mob and their cancel culture.” A second pledged to introduce articles of impeachment against Biden on his first day in office, just as Greene had done. A third, Mike Collins, who ended up as the nominee, vowed during his announcement speech, “I’ll make a great teammate for Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.”
When I brought this up to Greene, she replied, “It’s almost cookie-cutter for some of these candidates.”
Marge has had an outstanding first term in Congress.
- She publicly embraced and popularized Christian nationalism
- She has introduced a bill to ban “trans healthcare”
- She has spoken candidly about how White men are pushed to the bottom of the ladder in corporate America
- She has entertained the idea of a National Divorce
- She flirted with the idea of launching an Anglo-Saxon Caucus
- She called for an immigration moratorium
- She has slammed the FBI
- She showed up at AFPAC
- Marge has been the tip of the spear in normalizing White identity politics
- Above all though, the most impressive thing that Marge has done in her first term in office which won me over is vote against funding the war in Ukraine
The thing that made Trump interesting to me in 2016 and the reason why I ultimately voted for him is that he broke taboos and was a bulldozer who destroyed the True Cons who used to rule the GOP. He has long since lost his crown to Marge who is now the queen of owning the libs.
By owning the libs, Marge has pushed the mainstream much further in our direction on White identity, Christian nationalism, secession and isolationism. I hope she keeps up the good work.
Note: Marge was debating some black guy last night who is the Democrat running against her in Georgia.
