Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), an unhinged first-term Congresswoman, freaked out on Twitter over the weekend in response to a post from the anti-Trump conservative group known as The Lincoln Project. In a Saturday post, The Lincoln Project characterized House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) as a “traitor” amidst nationwide criticism for some of his recent antics, including his refusal to launch any kind of meaningful pushback against Greene, who — among other travesties — has repeatedly expressed apparent support for executing prominent Democrats. As if she sees everything through a disturbingly cultish lens, Greene shouted on Twitter in response to The Lincoln Project that they are the “real traitors.”
Greene commented as follows:
‘The Lincoln Project are the REAL traitors! You aren’t Republicans. You are nothing but a bunch of America last losers. You wallow in the same pit with the bloodthirsty media and the socialist democrats. [Kevin McCarthy] is fighting for America First. The LP is Biden’s little tool.’
The Lincoln Project are the REAL traitors!
You aren’t Republicans.
You are nothing but a bunch of America last losers.

Greene’s rhetoric is clearly geared towards incitement to violence, even without any admission of such on her part. No matter any originally acknowledged intention, she’s apparently angling to send her followers into a frenzy against the imaginary enemy that she calls the “bloodthirsty media.” During the recent rioting at the U.S. Capitol, where a mob of Trump supporters stormed the building and tried to forcibly stop Congressional proceedings to certify the electoral college outcome and Biden’s victory, journalists were among those who were in serious danger. At one point, an offshoot of the mob fashioned a noose out of a stolen cord from a news camera and hung it from a tree, and if that imagery wasn’t direct enough, someone inscribed “Murder the Media” on a door inside of the Capitol building.
Greene has refused to acknowledge any issue with her past behavior, which includes — among a long list of other issues — an incident when she followed Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg through the streets of D.C., hurling insults as she went. In a particularly bizarre example of her ongoing detachment from truth, Greene even once suggested that a deadly wildfire in California could have been started by a laser beam from space with some connection to the Rothschilds, a wealthy Jewish family that is often the subject of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
