She Seems Nice

Not all GOPers are racist. But if you are a racist, you’re probably a GOPer.

Sweet baby Jeebus, just when the GOP got rid of Steve King, they found a replacement unit:

The House’s highest-ranking Republicans are racing to distance themselves from a leading GOP congressional candidate in Georgia after POLITICO uncovered hours of Facebook videos in which she expresses racist, Islamophobic and anti-Semitic views.

The candidate, Marjorie Taylor Greene, suggested that Muslims do not belong in government; thinks black people “are held slaves to the Democratic Party”; called George Soros, a Jewish Democratic megadonor, a Nazi; and said she would feel “proud” to see a Confederate monument if she were black because it symbolizes progress made since the Civil War.

Greene is also teabagged to her eyeballs in the Q-stuff:

“With Greene, the woman running for Georgia’s soon-to-be vacant 14th Congressional District seat, the political aspirations will likely succeed. Greene is heading into a runoff for the Republican nomination as the clear favorite. And if she claims the nomination, her district is considered a safe seat for Republicans, meaning she would likely be headed to Washington.

“Having a Q supporter in Congress will inevitably fan the flames of the conspiracy, even if Greene decides to remain silent about Q or even disavow her previous beliefs, which involve her calling Q a “patriot” back in 2018…

“So far, the Republican Party apparatus has yet to acknowledge Greene’s promotion of Q theories, and Greene did not respond to a request for comment. But she is not a pariah within the party. She claims endorsements from prominent figures like Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and received financial backing from the House Freedom Fund PAC, a campaign vehicle connected to Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows.”

Politico’s morning email thingie:

The reaction: The top three House GOP leaders, as well as the head of the party’s campaign arm, all denounced Greene’s rhetoric. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and a slew of other Georgia Republicans came out in support of her GOP opponent in the runoff, with more GOP lawmakers expected to follow suit. But members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus who previously endorsed her, including Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), have not yet pulled their support for Greene, although they said they disagreed with her comments.

Mighty white of them.

Greene’s response: When asked for comment, Greene’s team didn’t deny the veracity of her statements — in fact, they thanked us for reminding them of the one about Soros, so they could use it in a campaign ad. But hours after our story published, she put out a lengthy, fiery statement railing against the “Fake News Media” and the “D.C. Swamp.” Greene also took a swipe at Scalise and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.): “Every Republican, every Christian Conservative is going to be called a racist and a bigot by the Fake News Media, as have Steve Scalise and Liz Cheney,” she said. “I’m sorry my future colleagues are unable to stand up to the pressure and fight back.”

Well-done Wingnuttia, she’s all yours.

    Those ‘shocked’ republicans should expect some blowback. It’s like they’re shunning one of their own constituents.

    Remember when the Tea Party was so far Right that they were considered too outlandish to be a threat? Ol’ Gym Jordan is from that group and he’s still causing trouble. There is no one too far right to be ignored. I hope this nightmare candidate gets squished.

    Whatever became of any actions taken against Georgia’s current Guv? You remember, he was Sec of State back then, and he got busy “pruning the voting rolls,” while simultaneously running for Gov? He was told by practically everyone how absolutely illegal that was, and that he ought to recuse himself from the Sec. of State position, he basically said, “So? Whatcha gonna do about it? Can’t stop me, don’t even try.”
    And since he had the backing of the residing Guv, and the GA Supremes resisted chiming in, we have the indisputably finest example of Southerin Ratfuckery in this century, and maybe even the last one.

    But not for long, you watch; these Rethugs like to outdo each other in the Ratfuckery Dep’t.
