Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), a controversial first-term Congresswoman and ardent supporter of ex-President Donald Trump, has agreed to pay $10,000 worth of legal fees for MeidasTouch, a political action committee that sued her after she blocked them from her personal Twitter account. In a manner similar to other cases that have unfolded, MeidasTouch claimed that the block violated their free speech rights, and in their settlement with the Congresswoman, Greene also agreed not to block critics. This week, Greene complained about the outcome on Twitter.
As Greene put it in response to a post from MeidasTouch:
‘Because of this PAC’s frivolous lawsuit against me, I’m not allowed to block people that threaten my life and my children’s lives every single day on social media. And they are bragging about donating the money to organizations that want to take away my guns so I couldn’t defend myself and my children, when people show up to murder us like they threaten. This PAC is celebrating that a woman (me) can’t block people that want to kill me and my kids. What an accomplishment for them.’

Greene’s comment about organizations that supposedly want to “take away” her guns refers to groups including Moms Demand Action and Orange Ribbons For Jaime, the latter of which is named after Jaime Guttenberg, who was one of the victims of the Parkland shooting in 2018. MeidasTouch indicated plans to donate their money from Greene to the organizations. In her rant, the Congresswoman just completely ignored the fact that these groups hope to help address the very real problem of thousands and thousands of deaths a year in the United States from guns. Instead, she characterized them as some kind of nefarious anti-gun conspirators.
Greene repeatedly expressed apparent support for executing prominent Democrats in social media activity that CNN helped spotlight recently. Following the revelation of this past support for political violence, the House voted to remove Greene from her committee assignments, although she — vaguely — attempted to distance herself from past rhetoric after facing criticism.
