Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Supported Violence Against Pelosi and Others in 2018 Facebook Posts

HeadlineJan 27, 2021

CNN reports Georgia Republican Congressmember Marjorie Taylor Greene, an open supporter of QAnon, repeatedly indicated support for violence against Democrats and intelligence agents on Facebook in 2018 and 2019, before she ran for Congress. In 2019, she liked a comment that said “a bullet to the head would be quicker” to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

In related news, calls are mounting from gun violence prevention groups for Greene to resign over posts from 2018 where she promoted harmful conspiracy theories that the school shootings in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, and Parkland, Florida, were staged.

Meanwhile, Republican Senator Josh Hawley, who backed Trump’s efforts to overturn the election, defended militia members in an article he wrote as a 15-year-old in the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.
