Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and her other far-right kooky friends (looking at you, Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, and the rest of the Troll Squad) love to play Twitter trolls and talk about how much tougher Republicans are than Democrats, but when confronted about their own actions, they suddenly turn into aggrieved victims. Greene tried while being questioned in court over her involvement in the Jan. 6 insurrection saying that she’s just a victim of the Left who don’t like her, but Staff Sergeant Gonell of the Capitol Police reminded her in no uncertain terms who the victims of Jan. 6 really were.
She is a victim of the rioters on January 6. Here are her injuries. Wait, those are mines. pic.twitter.com/YIFh0bSpKl

Gonell posted photos of his bruises and stitches incurred during the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., a violent attack that the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice has called “peaceful” and characterized the interactions between police and rioters as “hugging and kissing.” Greene is suspected of having been integrally involved in the planning around Jan. 6 and faces being barred from running for office again by the voters in Georgia, who sued to see the constitutional mandate that people involved in insurrections against their government carried out.
The attack on the Capitol Building led to the deaths of six officers and the serious injury of several others. Greene’s “victim” status is not only a joke, it’s insulting and misplaced. However, Greene herself is just as insulting and misplaced serving in any position of power.
Twitter sent their well wishes to Gonnell and thanked him for protecting those at the Capitol that day, including Marjorie Taylor Greene. Read some of their comments below:
