Marjorie Taylor Greene, extremist Republican candidate for Congress, has the full support and backing of Donald J. Trump and Kevin McCarthy.
This incitement to violence against members of Congress is an outrage, whether you agree with their politics or not.
Republican congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene on Thursday posted on her candidate Facebook page an image of herself holding a gun alongside images of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib and encouraged going on the "offense against these socialists."
"We need strong conservative Christians to go on the offense against these socialists who want to rip our country apart," her post's caption read.
Politico reported that Greene previously wrote on social media that Muslims do not belong in government and that there is "an Islamic invasion into our government offices," among other incendiary remarks.
CNN's KFile reported that Greene wrote two conspiracy-laden blog posts speculating that the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that led to one counter-protester's death was an "inside job" and promoting the debunked "Pizzagate" conspiracy theory that alleges some Democratic leaders are running a human-trafficking and pedophilia ring as real.
Greene told Fox News last month following her primary win that while she once read and discussed QAnon topics, she has decided to "choose another path" after encountering "misinformation."
