Just when one thinks that the GOP can’t top their lunacy…

And now let’s shoot the vaccine outreach workers. Is this really a helpful suggestion in a pandemic?

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/marjorie-taylor-greene-suggests-southerners-could-welcome-biden-s-police-n1276152

“What they don’t know is in the South, we all love our Second Amendment rights, and we’re not real big on strangers showing up on our front door, are we? They might not like the welcome they get.”

The irony is that in that same speech she blamed Dr. Fauci for creating the virus, killing millions, for which there is a vaccine that works quite well. She doesn’t suggest taking the jab, but shooting the outreach people trying to encourage vaccination.

Deplorable is not strong enough to describe that ignorant and evil Congresswoman. She is trying to get political support on the threat of violence rather than encouraging pandemic safety.

    1. We already know that it doesn’t take much to convince a few thousand gullible misfits to send 140 police to the hospital because they were ordered to force Pence to break the law of the land for their own amusement.

      It had to be amusement because none were so persecuted, tortured, or otherwise so miserable that insurrection was their only choice.

  1. I agree her intemperate rhetoric is improper for a member of Congress. But so long as she does not cross the line to incitement, it is a matter between her and her constituents.

    Whart we should be doing, as she is in a safely Red district, is to contribute to the primary campaign of a more reasonable conservative Republican.

    Contributing to a Democrat opponent would be an exercise in futility, so if you want to be rid of her, you’ll have to support a GOP challenger.

    1. You are excusing violence because it is your side. If BLM told Black neighborhoods to lock and load to kill outreach workers I believe you would be singing another tune.

      Heated rhetoric has consequences and we already know the propensity for Trump followers to play “patriot” and start attacking because they feel “disrespected”. Sound familiar? Often the same excuse for inner city gang violence.

      1. You mean like the fanatical Republican who shot up a Democrat baseball team practicing for a charity game?

        Oh, wait….

        You are hard to agree with. I wrote that she doesn’t belong in Congress and offered you a strategy for getting her out.

        The GOP leadership has taken away her committee assignments, which, short of criminal activity, is all they can do.

        What more do you want?

        Or is whining about her the point?

          1. When did the Democrats say that health care workers may be shot? WHnd. did the Democrats storm the Capitol to overturn the results of the election? When did the Democrats elect the most dangerous politician in the history of this country.

            Take you democratic hatred and plant it elsewhere. The GOP can’t legislate anything that is beneficial to the people of this country. They are not about small government anymore. They are all about kissing the orange ass and making him happy so they don’t get primaried out of office. (See Denver Riggleman, who just happened to do a solid for a couple of his close friends and got ran out of office because of it. AND who is now an adviser to the Jan 6th Committee. MORE bipartisanship from the Democrats. Go figure.)

            A Democrat fanatic actually shot GOP Congressmen practicing for a charity game.

            “When did the Democrats storm the Capitol to overturn the results of the election?”

            And yet they tried to do it in Congress for 4 straight years.

            “When did the Democrats elect the most dangerous politician in the history of this country.”

            Every single time, and they keep outdoing themselves. Biden, for example, just had his CDC head extend an eviction moratorium that SCOTUS had already ruled unconstitutional knowing that it will take longer for the courts to finally rule than the 3 month extension.

            A government that refuses to be constrained by the Rule of Law is far more dangerous than any unorganized insurrection.

          3. The man that shot Republicans was a baseball fan peaceably enjoying the game. Haven’t you heard? He stayed in the stands like a tourist. 😇 History rewrite coming soon.

            When you discuss the Rule of Law, threatening state officials with prosecution in order to change the votes by a specific amount breaks quite a few. That’s for starters.

            The pandemic has brought out the best and the worst in Americans. Interestingly enough, the CDC was an independent monolith that Trump could not control. Not his fault, right? At least according to your past proclamations.

            Now Biden has suddenly gotten full control for every CDC action.

            We are in this mess for this reason:

            Trump politicized COVID to the nth degree. Masks and closures were not palliative, they were reasons to attack Democrats. 5 years of sowing disbelief on everything by Trump has worked it’s evil intent, to confuse Americans so they “won’t know what to believe”.

            It was not just Trump, either. The right wing owned the most pervasive and powerful MSM in radio and cable news to act as surrogates. They did the best they could to denigrate the effects of COVID so well that vaccine hesitaters die in hospitals believing it’s a hoax.

            Now where did that idea come from in its infancy?

            I don’t think you can see that perspective, and there lies the rub.

            An excellent assessment of the Trump term. ONE term.

            How many Democratic congresspeople 1) called for that to happen 2) condoned it?

            Yeah, ZERO! How many GOP congresspeople are calling for attacks on health care workers sharing information to help counteract the anti-vax crowd that resides in the GOP side of the aisle? Vaccines that you personally wish everyone would get.

            Your completely biased hatred for Democrats blinds you to the reality of what has become the GOP.

            “Intemperate rhetoric” is so eerily similar to the phrasing you used for over 4 years to defend Trump’s LIES. If ANYONE individual is shot while trying to share LEGITIMATE information about the vaccines, MTG is responsible. And YOU are an accomplice for poo-pooing her language.

          5. Importantly, the speech was encouraging and praising not getting vaccinated.

            So shooting local volunteers or healthcare outreach workers will pale in comparison to the death toll among the unvaccinated.

            Greene is just the most visible of the ignoranti. FOX and friends like OANN or NEWSMAX have been bad mouthing the vaccine and masks until a little hiccup a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, Ingraham just can’t let it go. So there is that, too.

            What’s ironic is that these folks are riding the anti-government bandwagon so hard, that they are killing their own voters.

            Ignorant or just evil?

            Or both.

        You people accused Maxine Waters of far worse for far less. As always, the racially-tinged double standard that permeates Trumpdom is on display.

        If a mob of black people had stormed the Congress, attacking police, planting pipe bombs, trashing, looting and trying to murder Congressmen ALL of you people would be singing a different tune. You, for example, would not be dismissing such a mob as mere “trespassers.”

Your slanderous lie turns into an “opinion” based on an imaginary definition of a common English word. An assault is a physical attack. Period. Look it up.

          This lie about Maxine Waters comes on top of a string of ugly slanders and falsehoods addressed at the people at CDC doing their best to save lives. Gleeful at news of sick children? Really?

          I apologize for the profanity. It was written in anger that was provoked by the ugly smears and gross dishonesty directed at the CDC. However, the substance of my response was accurate. Enough is enough. So red card it is.

        2. @Green……Seems you have a different idea of what the phrase “self licking ice cream cone” actually means. I’m really surprised you haven’t heard it before with your military/naval background. I’ve been around a few enlisted personnel and officers in my career and, while it’s a new term, it has nothing to do with sexual actions, preferences or desires. It’s a term used to describe flag officers that have forgotten their days in/on the boats and say anything to advance their career. In other words…..while still wearing uniform they have become politicians. The person I singled out with that term, while not military, does just that in that he’ll would say anything to advance his position.
