Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA14) just can’t seem to understand that mask mandates don’t equal a Nazi regime, but she has at least switched up her attacks on pandemic prevention efforts by calling them “Communist” instead of “Nazi” these days. On Monday, she tried doing so in a Twitter tantrum against California Governor Gavin Newsom, who has recently drawn her attention for a policy requiring state workers to either be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be tested regularly to ensure containment of the spread of the virus that has already killed more than 600,000 Americans.
Disgraceful? Here's a word — murderous.
Your anti-vaccine lies are literally killing Americans. Your own supporters are following you off a cliff and into the ICU.
Come clean about vaccines — they save lives. https://t.co/pJjlzJ3TVJ

Greene had the nerve to call such policies, meant to curb the rapid spread of the new Delta variant in California and across the country which is infecting and killing the unvaccinated in alarming numbers, “disgraceful.” Meanwhile, Greene was shown earlier in the week laughing off a question about children contracting dying from the virus while 5-year-old Wyatt Gibson, a resident of Greene’s congressional district, lost his life to COVID-19.
Medical professionals in recent days have stressed the necessity herd immunity, a state at which the virus will no longer pose a significant risk of death, a state that the United States cannot reach thanks to the anti-vaccine sentiments held by supporters of people like ex-President Donald Trump and Rep. Greene. As long as enough people remain unvaccinated, the virus will continue to spread, including to those too young to be vaccinated, like Wyatt.
Twitter was quick to show their support for Gov. Newsome. Read some of their comments below:
