Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene harassed David Hogg & other Parkland survivors

Immediately after the January 6th insurrection, various Democratic congresspeople expressed their very real concerns that they were afraid of certain Republican members of Congress. Like, those Democrats were genuinely afraid that some GOP representatives and senators had aided and abetted the Capitol terrorists, and that those Republicans were still planning to harm Democrats. The shortlist of potentially murderous Republicans was pretty obvious to most, and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was on top. She’s a QAnon conspiracist with a history of “liking” social media posts which threatened violence against Democrats.

As that story took hold this week, another story about Rep. Greene came out – she was one of the wingnuts filming herself stalking and harassing survivors of the Parkland shooting. She’s one of those reprehensible “false flag” conspiracists who believe that “the government did Parkland and Sandy Hook so they could take away our guns.” Those dumbf–ks also believe that the children who died in those shootings didn’t really exist, and that the traumatized parents are just “actors.” I sh-t you not. There is still a “cottage industry” of gun nuts who stalk and harass Parkland and Sandy Hook survivors and the parents of murdered children. Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of those gun nuts.

Video of Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene confronting Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg before she was elected to Congress went viral Wednesday amid an uproar over newly reported comments she made in 2018 and 2019. In the video from March 2019, Greene follows Hogg as he walks toward the US Capitol. She can be heard making false and baseless claims as she asks him a series of questions related to gun rights and how he was able to meet with senators. Hogg continues to walk without addressing Greene.

“He’s a coward,” Greene says at the end of the video as Hogg walks away, claiming his activism was funded by billionaire philanthropist George Soros, who is often the subject of far-right conspiracy theories, and other liberals. “He can’t say one word because he can’t defend his stance.” Greene — who has previously called Hogg “#littleHitler” — said in a written statement to CNN that the video was taken while she was in Washington, “going from office to office in the Senate to oppose the radical gun control agenda that David Hogg was pushing.”

What’s f–king bonkers about the Greene video is that SHE MADE IT HERSELF and she posted it online. And somehow it never cropped up during her congressional campaign? Jesus. After one of the Parkland parents posted the video IDing Greene, David Hogg tweeted his statement, and he’ll be doing interviews today. There’s also a movement to flat-out expel Greene from Congress. Republicans are fighting it.

    It’s a very sad state of affairs when this nasty piece of work is an elected official.

    • Sarah says:

      These folks are but a mirror. People choose this representation on purpose, and the reps are the more palatable among them.

      • Golly Gee says:

        Yes. As if having the video come out before the election would’ve changed anything.

      • Darla says:

        That’s an excellent point Sarah, and one we don’t state often enough. All of this is on the people. The voters. It’s a real deep look into the white soul, isn’t it?

    • CL says:

      She won her election because she harassed her opponent so much and spread so many lies that his wife left him and he moved out of state, leaving her unopposed.

      She is a real C U Next Tuesday.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Really!?!? Wow – this woman sounds like a real deal nut job.

      • The Recluse says:

        I think the Washington Post covered it. The poor guy had a breakdown and his wife left him. He is rebuilding his life because her supporters destroyed him.

      • Sarah says:

        She is far from the only at the national level alone. Now consider who is in your state legislature and city council. These people are not anomalies, but representative of millions of Americans.

  2. Darla says:

    I was just watching these videos on Twitter, and my blood is boiling. I have thoughts but I’ll leave it at that.

    She needs to be expelled and jailed. I would say institutionalized for mental illness, but you know, f that. The entitlement dripping off this thing as she stalks a teen is infuriating. That’s not mental illness, that’s an out of control white lady who is ENTITLED. To do whatever she wants to do.

  3. Izzy says:

    At one point she reminds him that she has a concealed carry permit and is carrying. She says this to the survivor of a mass shooting. And of course the Republithugs won’t boot her from Congress. They’ve already shown us who they really are.

    • Darla says:

      I felt like my brain would explode when she said that to him.

    • Christin says:

      Anyone who thinks this past (not to mention current) behavior is okay is showing who *they* are. Because this is indefensible.

      • portlandjan says:

        The Parkland and Sandy Hook families should form a flash mob and pound her, along with Alex jones, into Meow Mix.

    • Lightpurple says:

      She says that several times. And if she was carrying, she was doing so illegally. A Georgia permit does not allow for carrying in Washington DC. The district grants no reciprocity. So much for “law-abiding citizens.”

      • Agirlandherdog says:

        I wondered if she’d obtained a DC gun permit prior to this video. Very doubtful because as Darla said above, entitlement. I think by now she would have obtained one because, as she’s pitching a hissy fit over having to go thru a metal detector to enter the Capitol, they wouldn’t want someone to point out she isn’t licensed to carry in DC.

    • Snappyfish says:

      I am impressed at how he reacted, or didn’t react. Shows great maturity & sense of self. She is a deplorable (yea, HRC was right) she needs to be censored & removed. She also believes 9/11 was a hoax.

      My evil little heart got a laugh at the fake Michael Kors she is carrying. It’s bad enough tf it were real. But to care a fake of a hack is pretty funny

  4. Athyrmose says:

    Linking Jimmy Gomez’s tweet about the resolution to have her expelled.

  5. Ohlala says:

    Scum of the earth. Pity that many many Americans sharing her views. Society is sick

  6. Lightpurple says:

    I had not seen that second video until just now. In the first one, she threatens him several times with the gun she claims to be carrying. She’s an abusive monster. What’s those kids went through afterwards from the likes of her is just horrific. And Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise just assigned her to the House education committee.

    • Esmom says:

      Every day I am more horrified that she has a seat at the table in Congress. It’s this lunatic faction of the Republicans making it increasingly unlikely that more like Peter Meijer or Adam Kinzinger come out against Trump’s madness. When a violent insurrection isn’t enough to break the fever, I feel like all hope is lost that it ever will.

    • Sandra says:

      And she’s far from a lone monster. I remember having to avoid social media for a long time after Parkland. The worst comments I saw that have stuck with me to this day were in response to what these children went through. The responses were “these aren’t children.” They infantalize guns and gun enthusiasts but can’t even admit that these were children who went through a massacre. Of course with nuts like those, the only children who matter are embryos. So.
      I remember similar after Sandy Hook. Like an hour after the news came out that 5 and 6 year old babies were slaughtered in their classroom, I saw a lot of “No one’s taking my guns away from me.” I knew any hope for civilized society in the U.S. was gone after that. It’s not surprising someone like Greene made it all the way to Congress.

  7. atorontogal says:

    I unfollowed a bunch of people on Twitter yesterday, as I realized that I am very angry and scared due to what I’m reading there, and I’m not even American. I cannot imagine what half of America is feeling.

  8. Miranda says:

    …How do people end up like this? Like, what the hell happened in her life to make her become such a sorry-ass, shitty excuse for a human being? Is she just an attention whore who’s trying to one-up all the other painfully stupid and shrill Republican women with horse faces and stringy, badly damaged bleached hair?

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      She is a perfect example of someone who has literally been giving everything and gotten away with anything who is having a tantrum at the thought of losing one of her shiny toys. She has no self control or discipline – she is a Trump level malignant narc. Her ‘rights’ are more important than the lives of children.

      These ‘conspiracy theories’ make her feel important, intelligent and that she is ‘better’ than others because in her mind she is ‘woke to the truth’. One of my brothers is like her – believes all these conspiracy theories which make him toxic to be around so i had to cut him off.

      • Miranda says:

        Yeah, I think it must the shiny toy tantrum. Near the start of Trump’s term, my dad said something about him, along the lines of “it’s not enough for something to benefit him; he’s not satisfied unless it actively hurts someone else.” I really hate to make sweeping generalizations, but as time goes by, that statement seems more and more true of ALL Republicans.

    • Indywom says:

      This self esteemed deficient b##ch is looking for validation because she has never had any self worth. The nuts who voted for her gave her that. One of my bosses told me that people who behave like this were never loved as children. People with good self esteem who value themselves do not behave like this.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    The problem is that her Republican gerrymandered constituents probably do not care. She should be censured by Congress for harassing and threatening a juvenile.

  10. Midge says:

    She is despicable.

  11. OriginalLala says:

    I…I, have no words. i can’t believe this is allowed to happen. How insane and evil are these people?!?!

  12. Willow says:

    Isn’t this stalking? Sounds like there is so many of these stalkers that the Parkland activists would be tied up in court all the time just to get restraining orders. This woman and her crowd are evil and need to be stopped. We can study them once they are safely behind bars.

  13. AnnaKist says:

    My god. How does a woman get to be so devoid of humanity that she can stalk, harass and threaten a teenager who is already traumatised because of actions someone just like her perpetrated? I’m not American, and can only imagine the horrors that became “acceptable” in the last 5 years. This woman needs stringing up, just like she would want for people not like her. She’s gutter trash of the worst kind. If she doesn’t get booted and charged for her criminal acts, well… god. This shit needs to drop. America is better than this.

    • AnnaKist says:

      *needs to stop

    • Cat Lady26 says:

      Did you all read the Congressman’s write up of why she needs to be censured? If you follow the links he provides, especially to a Politico article, they have a 10 minute video of her going off on all her feelings. For example, the reason why black and Hispanic people cannot find work is gangs, life choices, and laziness. She also says that white men are the most persecuted group in the nation. And goes on and on for 10 minutes and it is complete effing insanity!

  14. Sandra says:

    Elected Republican officials tend to be bad but this current batch of House Republicans are dangerous af. It is most definitely the Trump effect that these psychos got elected.
    Greene is bottom of the barrel scum. My apologies to barrels and scum for roping them in with this gross specimen.

  15. It’sJustBlanche says:

    One term, that’s all this heifer gets. And then she’ll get a talk radio show and she’ll spew her hate there. She’s not going to be re-elected. I can’t wait to see how much democrat money pours into North GA to get rid of this poor excuse for a human being.

  16. Feebee says:

    This woman is the Quintessential POS that Georgia 14 voters should be absolutely ashamed of themselves for sending to DC. She got ~73%.

    She harasses victims of a school shooting then gets rewarded by being put on the Education (& Labor) Committee. Make it Stop!

  17. Stacy Dresden says:

    She is a disgusting, evil bitch and that the GOP tolerates her within its ranks speaks volumes.

  18. Jess says:

    While watching that video I kept having visuals of him turning around and punching her in the face. She’s a sorry piece of entitled white trash.

  19. Cecilia says:

    This woman is truly trash

  20. HoofRat says:

    Provided that society survives pandemics, climate change and sheer obdurate stupidity, future historians will look back and wonder if we were all out of our minds to let malignant organisms like her gain any credibility, power or influence.

    • sarphati says:

      And they would be absolutely right! I am still shaking my head at how many millions were ready to sign up for another 4 years of madness and ineptitude! Greene is a loathsome toad who needs to hop on out of here!

  21. BearcatLawyer says:

    If Republicans do not condemn her behaviour and force her out of Congress….

  22. Noodle says:

    I taught high school for a number of years. I had a gang fight in my room, involving weapons, that I had to physically break up because one of the children was seriously injured and bleeding out and security didn’t come. The next year one child kicked me in the stomach while I was pregnant. We had many kids found with weapons in their backpacks. We had shooter drills and various improved models of locking doors installed frequently. This school was plagued by constant violence and I chose to work there to help the kids. I cannot explain how scary teaching can be at times. And yet, I count myself fortunate to never have had to witness a tragedy of the magnitude of Parkland or Sandy Hook. I can’t even go there – for the kids, or for the staff and faculty who worked tirelessly with those kids who desperately needed adults to love them.

    People like this woman, and others like her, don’t know. They don’t know the trauma, the images that will never leave, the damage done to people’s minds and hearts because of gun violence, especially when wrought out at these schools that supposed to be a safe space. Her words are so angering and so hurtful, because she doesn’t know, and doesn’t want to know. I have a hard time thinking straight about it because I have had the blood of a student literally dripping from my hands as I am trying to save his life and no one is coming to help. I have laid awake with terror that I’m going to lose my own baby because of a simple kick. I don’t equate my own trauma with David’s or the other survivor’s because theirs is much, much worse, but the pain. The images. The sounds. They never leave. You learn to cope, but they don’t leave.

    • Josie Bean says:

      My daughter is also teacher – middle school. I worry about school gun violence all the time. At Sandy Hook and Dunblane (and no doubt other school shootings) teachers were killed trying to protect the children, it is heartbreaking. M Green’s words are hurtful and to say such things to a young man who experienced firsthand such a tragedy is unforgivable. Green has no idea – none whatsoever.

      • Noodle says:

        @josiebean, it’s what teachers do. They protect their kids — all of them. Please thank your daughter for doing the hard work of teaching middle school. She is such an important part of the kids’ lives, even if all they do is roll their eyes and cop attitudes.

  23. Korra says:

    What boils my blood are the people who defended her — guess what side of the political aisle they are on — saying that David Hogg is an activist and a public figure, so people have a right to publicly engage him on gun issues. Never mind that he was likely still a minor in this video and the shooting was a few weeks fresh when this incident happened.

    But the additional kicker? MTG hosted some townhalls in her district yesterday and had her team use police force to kick out a local media outlet who dared to ask her a question about potentially getting expelled from Congress. This media outlet was invited and brought their press credentials btw. Funny how those same “he is a public figure and activist, so people have a right to engage” people are suddenly quiet about this.

  24. Lady Keller says:

    And this is the “pro-life” party.

    • Josie Bean says:

      Exactly. Pretty sickening when you think about what hypocrites they are. They will defend their own right to own guns, including automatic weapons, even if that means thousands are shot and killed or maimed as a consequence. Yes, indeed the so-called “pro-life” party.

  25. KBur says:

    I can’t wait to vote for David Hogg for something someday.

  26. grabbyhands says:

    Not only do the Republicans not call her out in any way, they just rewarded her by putting her on the Education and Labor committee.

    Disgusting.

  27. Liz version 700 says:

    What a vile disgusting person. I thought I couldn’t hate her more, I was wrong

  28. Josie Bean says:

    I didn’t know who this woman was until just recently. She is disturbing and if she isn’t thrown out of congress for her actions, past and present, then I am truly scared of what the USA is coming to.

  29. Rise_Above says:

    Aren’t there any enforceable ethical standards in congress which are being violated by her which can be used to get her booted out of…. Hahaha who am I kidding people like her face no real consequences- just more white privilege to benefit from…

  30. J ferber says:

    Horrible woman. As per the Capitol attack, ask her, Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz about the insurrectionist who tasered a cop16 times in the neck, causing the cop to have a heart attack. I read that 140 cops were injured, 1 murdered and 2 who committed suicide. Domestic terrorism , unleashed by mofo donald trump, is just beginning. The monster is in the House.

  31. Tiffany says:

    This is not facetious. This is not to be snarky. This is stated as a plain fact.

    White women are going to get us killed in this country.

  32. Dl says:

    This woman is dangerous. She has no business serving this country. I cannot even write the anger is so great

  33. Joh says:

    A basic google search would have cleared up who he was and how old he was during the shooting.
    But she and her staff are pretty unintelligent.
    I will not be surprised if she and her husband end in a violent alcohol fueled murder suicide over his cheating.
    She’s common as pig tracks.
    Calling him a coward is rich coming from a woman who carries a gun in her purse so she ALWAYS wins an argument.

  34. heygingernsnaps says:

    This woman is a horrible and disgusting human being. How she has not been expelled is beyond me. She cries about being censored when is anything but, but they go around on twitter reporting accounts that post how horrified they are of her actions and put it as hate speech causing their accounts to be locked. They tried to censor journalists who have tried to ask her questions, what a trick!
