The woman who acts as if she is too cute by far pictured with her long guns, smug about her concealed guns, and bragging about her conversation with Donald Trump may be losing some speed. After all, she leads facefirst as she ducks around the House of Representative’s new metal detectors. But that which is tripping her up is her bizarre QAnon conspiracy theories that are a “cancer” on the Republican Party as House Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said. Two teacher’s unions wholeheartedly agree.
Tthe-former-Grim McConnell did not mince words, according to CNN:
‘Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country. Somebody who’s suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality. This has nothing to do with the challenges facing American families or the robust debates on substance that can strengthen our party.’
The two largest teachers’ unions in this country released a joint statement on Tuesday demanding that Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) be removed from the House Education Committee. House Minority Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) had just placed her on it in the midst of flying down to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the Donald’s ring.
Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) commented on MSNBC’s Live with Ayman Mohyeldin:
She is the David Duke of this day.’
A letter released by The National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) went directly to McCarthy. It urged him to take Greene off of the House’s Education Committee. In their words, Greene lacked the “judgment, empathy or wisdom” to give her any indication of what education means in the hands of America’s most precious commodity — its children. Should she enact any false information, our children could be damaged for generations.
The letter read:
‘On behalf of the nation’s two leading teachers’ organizations, representing more than 4 million educators nationwide, we request that you immediately rescind the appointment of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) to serve on the House Committee on Education and Labor,” the statement reads.
‘Conspiracy theories do not belong in our schools. Hate, racism and anti-Semitism do not belong in our schools. Bullying and harassment do not belong in our schools,” the letter continues. “Greene has trafficked in all of these heinous activities. She has therefore disqualified herself from serving on the committee that plays a crucial role in the teaching and learning of America’s children and in ensuring their safe learning environments.”
The letter pointed to a video of Green harassing activist David Hogg when he was just a teenager. He survived the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting where 17 other students died. Since then, he has become a nationally-known gun control activist. Greene called the Stoneman Douglas shooting a “false flag.”
The letter continued:
‘It is one thing to disagree with the advocacy that Parkland, Fla., students chose to engage in, but quite another to castigate and threaten them for it. How much more can society traumatize victims of violence?
And this was a U.S. representative. The fact is, if any educator harassed students and called horrifying shootings false flags, there would be serious consequences. There should absolutely be consequences for a member of Congress, as well.’
Greene’s office released a statement that read:
‘Democrats and their spokesmen in the Fake News Media [are] coming after [her] want to take me out.’
Since then, the Democrats in the House have called for her to be deleted from “all committees, censured, or expelled.”
Trump apparently supported Greene, and she indicated that the two would soon meet.
