QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) launched an insidious attack on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Saturday during disgraced former President Donald Trump’s grievance rally in Ohio.
Greene has frequently targeted AOC to the point that it has crossed over into outright harassment and bullying. Ocasio-Cortez has compared Greene’s unacceptable behavior to that of the drunks she used to throw out of bars when she was a bartender.
But Greene continued obsessing over AOC during the rally, even going so far as to question her patriotism and call for her imprisonment.
According to Business Insider:
Before former President Donald Trump’s first post-presidential rally in Wellington, Ohio, on Saturday, she took her time onstage to once again attack Ocasio-Cortez, deriding the two-term lawmaker as “the little communist from New York City.”
After the crowd booed, Greene agreed with the crowd and suggested that Ocasio-Cortez should be jailed.
“Yeah, lock her up too. That’s a good idea,” Greene said. “She’s not an American. She really doesn’t embrace our American ways. Not at all.”
Ocasio-Cortez is not a communist. She’s a democratic socialist closely aligned with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and the democratic socialists of Europe. Democratic socialism differs greatly from communism in that democratic socialists support democratic political systems and a fair economy for everyone. They also support a strong social safety net and universal healthcare. And they denounce communism.
Furthermore, AOC was born in Brooklyn to an American father and Puerto Rican mother, who is an American citizen since Puerto Rico is part of the United States.
Finally, Greene has a lot of gall to call for imprisoning AOC considering Greene is the one who called for assassinating House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and supported and may have aided the Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol on January 6th in a coup attempt to overthrow democracy. If anyone should be in prison right, it’s Greene.
AOC responded on Twitter:
First of all, I’m taller than her https://t.co/H6rXG66GJk

And Greene had a lame comeback:
But you’re still a commie. https://t.co/Vj5kDSDwhO

Again, AOC is not a communist. But Greene is a fascist terrorist enabler and sympathizer who should have been arrested and jailed a long time ago for threatening the life of Pelosi, who is third in line to the presidency.
Twitter needs to suspend Greene’s account for bullying and she needs to be held accountable by the Department of Justice. Frankly, she should have been expelled from the House already as well.
