Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Confronts Parkland Survivor David Hogg in Newly Resurfaced Video

HeadlineJan 28, 2021

Newly resurfaced video shows far-right Republican Congressmember Marjorie Taylor Greene confronting Parkland mass shooting survivor David Hogg on Capitol Hill as he lobbied lawmakers to enact gun controls. The video was filmed in March of 2019, before Greene’s election to Congress last November.

Marjorie Taylor Greene: “Look, I’m an American citizen. I’m a gun owner. I have a concealed carry permit. I carry a gun for protection for myself. And you are using your lobby and the money behind it and the kids to try to take away my Second Amendment rights.”

The video concludes with Greene calling Hogg a “coward.” She wrote on Facebook in 2018 that the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre was a “false flag” operation, meaning it was staged.

David Hogg responded on Twitter, “It’s so frustrating that we have people like Marjorie Taylor Greene in Congress that would rather spread conspiracies about mass shootings than confront the reality people are dying everyday from gun violence. I just want to do the work and help end gun violence.” Marjorie Taylor Green has been named to the House Education and Labor Committee.
