Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell recently referred to the views of Marjorie Taylor Greene as a “cancer” to the GOP. The Senator’s comments come on the heels of the newly-elected House Rep’s previous statements relating to “conspiracy theories” surfacing. Greene spoke about the 9/11 Pentagon attack, the 2018 California Wildfires, and a variety of other things. Her viewpoint on the aforementioned subjects, in addition to her alleged support of “Q”, has caused members of Congress to dismiss her as a conspiracy theorist. There are even calls for her resignation.
Taylor Greene’s controversial statements go back to at least 2018. Several interviews and social media posts of hers have surfaced from that time. She dared to doubt the existence of a plane at the Pentagon after the 9/11 attacks. Establishment types in Washington find this abhorrent, and they aren’t necessarily incorrect, but they are unempathetic. The lack of a plane at the Pentagon is not an uncommon thought to have. These DC types would know that if they spent more time with their constituents and less time fund-raising at big-ticket dinners in DC.
Parkland Survivor David Hogg has become a social activist focusing on issues like gun control. Marjorie Taylor Greene confronted Hogg in a public space outside in Washington DC about the specific issue of gun control. The mainstream media painted the confrontation as an “attack on a school shooting survivor.” But is that really what it was? If David Hogg is an outspoken advocate for gun control, then he should be open for criticism just like any other public figure on that particular issue. He cannot use the shield of his past trauma as a proverbial “get out of jail free” card.
To get down to brass tacks, the issue with Marjorie Taylor Greene is not necessarily the whole “Jewish Space Lasers” thing or her confrontation with David Hogg. The issue is that she is essentially a regular person who got off her couch and made it to Congress. That is generally accepted on the left – as that is the case for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and a host of others. But when a regular person with “different” views rises on the right, there is much more scrutiny. Some say that this is a correct check and balance measure. But those same people aren’t necessarily aware of the world happening around and without them.
Normal, everyday Americans have tired of the political establishment in Washington. More and more people on both sides are calling for term limits where applicable. Faith in voting and the system in general is fading because of the clear and obvious disconnect between people and their elected representatives. McConnell and Co. may try to squelch the voice of the people by attempting to censure Marjorie Taylor Greene, but his efforts will be futile as time goes on and the establishment becomes weaker while regular people begin to serve again, as was intended from the start.
