After Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) bizarrely referred to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) as the “little Communist from New York City” at a Trump rally in Ohio on Saturday, the New York Congresswoman rhetorically shot back on Twitter. As she memorably put it, “First of all, I’m taller than her.” Ocasio-Cortez is, of course, not actually a Communist. Someone ought to ask Greene if she can even define “Communist.” Troublingly, Greene also said at the weekend Trump event that jailing Ocasio-Cortez is a “good idea,” adding that Ocasio-Cortez is “not an American” and “really doesn’t embrace our American ways.” Could the racism be any more obvious?

Side note: Does Greene think that she has some kind of monopoly on defining who is an “American”? The Constitution certainly doesn’t say anything along the lines of: “And by the way, a conspiracy-pushing Congresswoman from Georgia who apparently somehow missed that the Holocaust was as much of an atrocity as it really was is in charge of deciding who is or isn’t American.” The Holocaust thing isn’t conjecture — after feverishly promoting the false claim that pushes to wear face masks or get vaccinated against COVID-19 were on par with what was perpetrated in Nazi Germany, Greene visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., and subsequently admitted to onlookers that “there’s nothing comparable to it.” Did she just learn this?
