No one should be forced to work with someone who has supported movements calling for their death, and especially not when that person insists on coming to work armed. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) should be expelled after some of the revelations that have come out about her over the past three weeks, and Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) intends to make that happen.
In just over three weeks in her role as a United States representative, it was revealed that Greene liked death threats on Facebook and calls for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s beheading, as well as the execution of President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Greene has insisted that it’s all fake news and that many people have run her Facebook page over the years. No one is buying it. A video, posted by Greene was unearthed on Wednesday in which Greene stalked 17-year-old Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg, shouting insults and demanding he answer her questions. She has supported Q Anon theories that paint Democrats as pedophiles who murder children for fun. It’s not a good look, particularly when Greene avoids metal detectors and insists on carrying a gun with her onto the House floor.
.@mtgreenee, is this you harassing @davidhogg111 weeks after the Parkland shooting, that my daughter was killed in & he was in? Calling him a coward for ignoring your insanity. I will answer all of your questions in person. Get ready to record again.pic.twitter.com/aQjL74x7kh

In an appeal to his congressional colleagues, Rep. Gomez, who represents California’s 34th district, wrote that:
‘Such advocacy for extremism and sedition not only demands her immediate expulsion from Congress, but it also merits strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Her very presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and staff who serve our government, and it is with their safety in mind, as well as the security of institutions and public servants across our country, that I call on my House colleagues to support my resolution to immediately remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body.’
Twitter was fully in agreement with the resolution, supporting his calls for the expulsion of the newly-elected representative. Read some of their comments below:
