QANon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is demanding that the Justice Department release everyone who took part in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. Her reason: Because the Taliban released prisoners from jails in Afghanistan after they took control of the country this week.
Appearing on Steve Bannon’s “War Room: Pandemic” show on Real America’s voice, Greene remarked:
“There were 5,000 terrorist prisoners released from a camp. Set free.
“Here are my thoughts. Here we have people being held in prison that were at the Capitol on Jan. 6. They’re being treated like political prisoners of war but yet we have President Biden and Kamala Harris — don’t forget her, hold her accountable — and this entire administration that allowed terrorists that will chop your head off, throw gay people off of buildings, that they will cover women in burkas and shove them in homes and treat them like slaves never to be seen from again.”
Greene also suggested that Biden was planning to relocate Afghans to the United States in order to elect more Muslim lawmakers to Congress:
“You can stop it and make a difference and then we don’t have to see some old man on television leaving Americans over there in some horrid country like Afghanistan. And we don’t have to hear about refugees being brought into our country leading to the likeness of Ilhan Omar becoming members of Congress one day.”
As is almost always the case with statements from Greene, most of what she says is devoid of facts.
The Taliban released prisoners who were also members of the Taliban. That often happens in Third World countries when there’s what can best be called a revolution.
However, in the United States we have the rule of law, and we don’t mass release criminals when a new president takes office. If we did, we’d probably have a country as unstable as what see in Afghanistan.
And why should domestic terrorists who violently attacked Capitol police officers be set free? They broke the law and deserve to be punished to the maximum extent of the law. If Ms. Greene doesn’t like that, perhaps she should volunteer to be incarcerated along with the Jan. 6 rioters so she can minister to them.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is as nutty as a fruitcake. She needs to be sent packing in 2022.
