Marjorie Taylor Greene's Crusade To Eradicate American Democracy


Even her Republican peers have said she is crazy and they are concerned that Marjorie Taylor Greene could help take the party down in 2024. One can only hope. Stephen Colbert demolished her secessionist lunacies on his show; called Greene the "chief spokesperson for civil war." Additionally, the berserk buffoon wants to ban Democrat voting for at least five years if they move to red states. Here's the way the New Republic describes Marjorie Taylor Greene...

"Marjorie Taylor Greene’s idea for America to “separate by red states and blue states” isn’t just dumb and harmless. It’s also a window into a dangerous vision that’s ascendent in the Republican Party."

Here's her scenario...

“We need a national divorce,” she wrote on Twitter on February 20. “We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the [Democrats’] traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene advocates for 'national divorce'...

We are definitely "done" if the U.S. Congress allows lunatics like Greene and her cronies in the House continue to serve. TNR says her vision "is an authoritarian
rejection of democratic government itself." Isn't that what Republican ideology is all about? Power at any cost and the welfare of the American public be damned. Secession has been tried before and failed, but it becomes newly appropriate, many think purely for attention.

But this action is at least also due to the fact that the GOP still has no real agenda for the country so Speaker Kevin McCarthy allows his deranged bunch of dimwits to blunder on just so he can enjoy his speakership. The inference that red states should secede from the Union is likened to the old saying, 'if you don't let me win, I'll take my ball and go home.' What this gang of crackpot legislators doesn't understand is the fact that we don't need separation, we desperately need unity.

But Greene says the left and the right have "reached the point of 'irreconcilable differences' on a variety of topics." Here's her take from TNR...

“I’ll speak for the right and say, we are absolutely disgusted and fed up with the left cramming and forcing their ways on us and our children with no respect for our religion/faith, traditional values, and economic & government policy beliefs,” Greene explained.

What we need is members of Congress who can negotiate their difference and come together with a solution that fits both sides. Lyndon Johnson could do this. So could Everett Dirksen. But the fact is that Republicans don't want to negotiate; their main goal is to thwart whatever the Democrats bring to the table. My guess is this has become something the American public is fed up with and voters will show their concern in 2024.

I urge you to read the New Republic article.
