Summary List PlacementRep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, on Facebook and elsewhere, has endorsed conspiracy theories claiming that mass shootings are “false flags” to justify gun control and shown support for calls for executing high-level Democrats. Now some are saying the newly elected Republican from Georgia should be kicked out of the people’s house.
“Such advocacy for extremism and sedition not only demands her immediate expulsion from Congress, but it also merits strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues,” Rep. Jimmy Gomez, a Democrat from California, said Wednesday.
Gomez plans to introduce a resolution to expel Greene over her endorsement of “domestic terrorism,” citing her comments on social media recently uncovered by CNN.
In 2019, for example, she “liked” a comment on her Facebook page stating that the fastest way to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from office would be a “bullet in the head.” She also called David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland school shooting, a “little Hitler” and a “paid little pawn.”
Greene, in a statement, blamed the comments and likes on the fact that “teams of people manage my pages.”
On Wednesday, Hogg posted a video on Twitter showing Greene harassing him in real life while he was in Washington, DC, meeting with senators in the wake of the school shooting. In the video, the future member of Congress calls the teenager a “coward” and boasts of having a concealed-carry gun permit.
A spokesperson for House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy told CNN and Axios that the congressman “plans to have a conversation” with Greene.
But Rep. Gomez said his fellow members of Congress need to do more than talk.
“Her very presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and staff who serve our government,” he said, “and it is with their safety in mind, as well as the security of institutions and public servants across our country, that I call on my House colleagues to support my resolution to immediately remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body.”
The last member of Congress to be expelled was Rep. James Traficant, an Ohio Democrat who in 2002 was removed from the legislative body after being convicted of 10 felonies in a bribery and racketeering case.
