With each day, it seems Georgia Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene gets into even more trouble with things she’s said or done, ranging from harassing Democrats on the floor of the House of Representatives to comparing protective mask mandates to the Holocaust.
That being said, it probably won’t surprise you to know that Greene has been making offensive pronouncements for years, including before she was elected to Congress.
Case in point, a just unearthed video of Greene speaking in 2020 at a Dalton City Council meeting and insisting that it’s wrong to take down statues of Confederate generals and the Confederacy, even though Southern secession from the United States was an act of war and outright treason predicated on one thing: To protect the owning of slaves.
In the video clip, Greene says she “supports keeping all of our monuments whether they’re good, bad, embarrassing, something that I’m happy about, something that I’m sad about, or something that I wish hadn’t happened.”
And then Greene gets very specific about what (and who) she would allow to be deified:
“We’re seeing situations where Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, all kinds of statues are being attacked. And it seems to be just an effort to take down history. And whether I see a statue that may be something that I would fully disagree with like Adolf Hitler, maybe a statue of Satan himself, I would not want to say take it down. But again it’s so that I can tell my children and teach others about who these people are, what they did, and what they may be about.”
But history isn’t learned from statues. That comes from books. And yet it’s a safe bet that Greene would love to ban all sorts of books that she considers to be dangerous or subversive. Would she allow the Koran to be on the shelves of a school library? Or would she prefer the Korean be replaced with Mein Kampf?
It becomes clearer with each utterance from Marjorie Taylor Greene that she needs to be expelled from Congress ASAP.
