“[Marjorie Taylor Greene] spread QAnon conspiracy theories, such as the lie that George Soros sent Jewish people to die in the Holocaust. Soros, who is Jewish himself, was a teenager at the time.
“Greene in her victory speech took aim at Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying her victory was part of a conservative tide that will result in a change of control in the U.S. House. ‘She’s a hypocrite. She’s anti-American,’ Greene said. ‘And we’re going to kick that bitch out of Congress.’”
Quite a victory speech, methinks. One certain viewer sends his congratulations!
Gonna make a claim chowder: the new Tea Party will be Q-spracy theorists. That’s their lifeboat.
Down in Georgia, the big news is that Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) easily defeated John Cowan (R) in GA-14. Since that district is R+27, she’ll be heading to Congress, and she’ll be taking her predilection for conspiratorial thinking, racism, and anti-Semitism right along with her. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was shunned and shorn of his committee assignments for hinting at things that Greene is happy to say out loud. Exactly how Republicans will deal with her is yet to be seen, though they certainly didn’t work hard to defeat her. Democrats, for their part, are going to make her the poster child for what the party of Lincoln has now become.
Cherish this moment, Georgia.
