Thread: What do we think of Marjorie Taylor Greene?

    What do we think of Marjorie Taylor Greene?

    She's getting a lot of disingenuous hate from the MSM and liberals who have from the start tried to smear her as a QAnon supporter.

    I honestly think she's wrong about a ton of things, however she is certainly attracting a lot of attention and I'm not sure what to make of it.

    I'm mainly making this thread because of what she said today in a tweet and also similarly in a press release:
    The Socialist Democrats, the incoming administration, the DC Swamp, and the Silicon Valley Cartel are looking for any reason to implement Communist Chinese-style spying and censorship on the American people.

    Right now, they’re working on legislation and bureaucratic rules representing the biggest violation of privacy and civil rights since the unconstitutional Patriot Act was passed years ago.
    This is mainly because the bar is so low already, but I expect her to bee one of the strongest defenders of the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendment in Congress (which are all under constant attack).

    However if this is the case and she is on the front lines, the MSM aligned with the Dems will weaponize her "craziness" in order to make it look like preserving the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendment are crazy. It's probably strategically a detriment to liberty to have her be the face of it now which is exactly why enemies of liberty will try to make her the face of it.

    At the same time, it's great that she is bringing up things like the Patriot Act to MAGAland when Trump himself said he wanted to "strengthen" it. So basically I think her presence in the mix is likely to make Republicans marginally more pro-liberty and Democrats marginally more anti-liberty. Unless she becomes a bigger figure then it can be more than just marginally.

    In the end I am no fan but she's certainly going to be a voice for liberty, sometimes.

    Time will tell, but so far she has more spine to her than damn near every elected Republican. Hopefully that spine does not end up being used to regularly further neoconservative ambitions. If it goes well, then she could be one of the best defenders of liberty in the House.

    I also greatly appreciate that she does not care to play the optics game. It is not a winning hand for liberty, and people need to stop fretting about what the media will or will not say about their actions.

    Kind of reminds me of Winston Churchill during the 1930s when he was the lone, unpopular voice against growing tyranny in Central Europe.

    I have some respect for her since she wanted to impeach Biden on day 1 of his presidency. That's a pretty ballsy move.

    What do we think of Marjorie Taylor Greene?
    I have no idea. Insufficient data.

    A preliminary scan conducted by running the minimal information I've casually encountered about her through some de-Cathedralizing filters indicates an entertainingly wacky gadfly who has a taste for biting sacred cows.

    IOW: Potentially a perfect addition to the Federal Clown ShowTM.

    In any case, she certainly seems to be making all the right enemies: identitarian Republicans, BLM Democrats and other mouth-foaming peddlers of "outrage" ... (and, no doubt, plenty of those tiresomely tut-tutting "decorum" scolds, too ...)

    Republican Jewish Coalition 'offended and appalled' by Taylor Greene comments
    https://thehill.com/homenews/house/5...reene-comments
    Lexi Lonas (29 January 2021)

    The Republican Jewish Coalition released a statement Friday condemning Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), saying it is “offended and appalled by her comments and her actions.”

    Greene has come under scrutiny recently after video footage surfaced of her taunting David Hogg, a survivor of a mass shooting that took place in a Parkland, Fla., high school in 2018. At the time, Greene did not hold congressional office.

    The newly elected congress woman has also been associated with the right-wing conspiracy theory QAnon.

    In the Coalition's statement released Friday, the group said that it has always "spoken out against antisemitic comments from individuals on both sides of the political aisle," adding that it does not hesitate to do so again in Greene's case.

    The group added that it threw its support behind Greene's primary opponent when she ran for her seat in Georgia in 2020.

    “[W]e supported Greene’s primary opponent, John Cowan, in Georgia,” the coalition continued. “We did so because we found Greene’s past behavior deeply offensive.”

    "She repeatedly used offensive language in long online video diatribes, promoted bizarre political conspiracy theories, and refused to admit a mistake after posing for photos with a long-time white supremacist leader," the group continued.

    A recent report from CNN also found Facebook posts that appeared to show Greene expressed support for violence against Democrats before running for Congress.

    “We opposed her as a candidate and we continue to oppose her now. She is far outside the mainstream of the Republican Party, and the RJC is working closely with the House Republican leadership regarding next steps in this matter,” the statement said.

    Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) said on Friday that she does not feel comfortable being around Greene and is moving her office away Greene's for the safety of her team.

    I wonder by what margins you need to win by to be considered "legitimate" in this new democrazy?

    I barely knew anything about the woman, until I noticed today that the media organs and swamp dwellers were after her full cry.

    Of course when the System, as a whole, starts tut tutting and "outraging" at one person in particular, you know they must close to the mark on something...I figure she must have promised to hold congressional hearings on kiddie diddlers and snuff film enthusiasts within government.

    Wanna bet on when they run her off?

    I say a week...by next Tuesday she'll be back to running her dad's construction business.

    This proves that Ron Paul, Debra Medina and others who either steered clear of 9/11 truth, or worse threw truthers under the bus (Debra Medina) were given HORRIBLE advice from their handlers! You aren't going to placate anyone by not standing with significant portions of your own base. I am no fan of Trump. But he didn't throw large sections of his base under the bus just to placate the media.

    That said, Ms. Greene seems on the surface a little unhinged to say the least. I believe the parts of the 9/11 conspiracy theories that can be verified as true. Same for Q-Anon. But she seems, from what I've read, to latch onto and pass along anything that goes against the MSM narrative. I don't trust the MSM either, but that doesn't mean everything that anyone outside the MSM says is true. I don't think, for example, that there are any videos on the "dark web" of Hillary Clinton and Huma Aberdeen ritually sacrificing a girl and drinking her blood. (I've been on the dark web and it's not what it's been hyped up to be. Pretty boring TBH.) That doesn't mean there aren't pedophiles in the world and who are doing awful things and who have their hands on the levers of power. Jeffery Epstein's flight logs prove that by itself. And that's what gets me. Why go for the unproven crazy stuff when there is so much rich material in the public domain? But then you have to answer unsettling questions like.....why didn't Trump demand a full investigation of Epstein's death? (I know I'm preaching to the choir here.)

    He pretty much did, at the end. The capitol rioters were his base, and he disavowed them and left them out to dry.

    Many saw his disavowal as a betrayal.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    It's interesting how I haven't heard much said about Epstein recently and these stories barely even make it into the media:
    1) TMZ had this recent scoop which said that Epstein had tapes of Trump and Clinton (Feb 20, 2021 article, link).
    2) It has also been said from what seem to be at least somewhat reputable sources that Epstein was working for Mossad (December 2019 article, link).

    This is old news but the same source that said Epstein kept tapes of people (which now has further evidence to support that he kept tapes) also said Epstein was working for Mossad.

    This isn't exactly complicated to piece together, that Mossad probably got their hands on these tapes and that's one of many ways they control politicians. If so it'd also give a motive for killing Epstein because he probably had the goods to prove it if he ever stood trial and they couldn't have that happening.

    I've seen lots of dumb conspiracy theories thrown around regarding Epstein (e.g. "The Clintons" had him killed) while the best conspiracy theory is in plain sight, that at the very least Epstein was working for Mossad whether or not they actually had him killed. It would also explain how Clinton and Trump were so totally beholden to Israeli interests.
