Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene slammed her fellow Republican members of Congress as “weak and moderate” in a lengthy Twitter rant on Friday afternoon, according to Newsweek.
The controversial Georgia lawmaker promised to be “more direct than usual” in her criticism of other Republicans in a 38-part Twitter thread addressed to her “colleagues.”
In the thread, she claimed “Dictator Joe Biden” started the Democratic Party’s “Communist takeover of America” on Thursday, when he announced federal employees would be required to get vaccinated.
The congresswoman then went on, saying Republicans had failed to deliver on “key issues” like repealing Obamacare when they had a majority and to stop “the outright destruction to our country,” which is why she ran for congress in the first place.
One day after Biden’s inauguration, the congresswoman introduced articles of impeachment against him.
She referred to Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump and remove Greene from committees as “Democrats in disguise”, and, later, as “weak and moderate Republicans. She added that she had “no confidence” in the current Republican leadership.
Here’s what Greene had to say:
Since Dictator Joe Biden started phase 1 of the Dems’ Communist takeover of America yesterday & I don’t have a GOP Conference call on my calendar or an email in my inbox from leadership to stop this insanity, well I’m going to be more direct than usual.
After all, I ran for Congress because when Republicans controlled the House and Senate during the first two years of Trump’s presidency, they failed to deliver key issues that were of utmost importance to Republican voters.
Broken campaign promises like: Repealing Obamacare. Obamacare took my families premium from $800 to over $2400 Funding and building a border wall. Rs funded all kinds of things for foreign countries but wouldn’t build a wall for Americans.
Defunding Sanctuary cities. Rs funded cities that harbor illegal aliens. Defunding Planned Parenthood. During the first two years under Trump, Rs couldn’t even defund that disgusting abortion mill. No, they funded it. That’s the one I really can’t get over.
Remember that big Omnibus that Trump was so angry over, the one that made us all furious? Trump said never put another bill like this across my desk and the Republicans gave our great President no other option.
It can not be overstated that when Republicans don’t do what they say, they give no reason for people to support them.
Along with millions of R voters, it was then that I realized that if Republicans can’t accomplish the most important and easiest of campaign promises, when they held a strong majority with a President like Trump, then they never will. So I ran for Congress and here I am.
I give speeches to hundreds to thousands of Republican voters every single week at home and all across the country. Our voters are fed up with Republicans in Congress doing nothing to stop Dictator Joe Biden and the outright destruction to our country.
You see, Republicans have a razor thin minority in the House, only short a few votes. This puts maximum pressure on Pelosi to perform because she can’t lose any votes, she needs her full conference to pass bills. And perform she does. I respect her for that.
Easy to perform when Republicans in the House apply no real pressure even though Democrat bills are so heinously un-American. The Communist Democrat agenda could be beat if my colleagues would legislate and take action the way many give interviews on TV.
“But Marjorie you’re just a freshman, you don’t understand how it’s done.” Really?
The political pendulum has swung back & forth between Rs & Ds for decades & we’re $30 trillion in debt, on the brink of communism, at risk of economic collapse, being drug into full dependence on a global economy, & the experienced Rs want to lecture me on how it’s done?
You all should hear what your wealthiest most successful donors are saying about you all and your lack of real action while Democrats burn our country to the ground with a dementia patient at the wheel.
It’s beyond me that my Conference still chooses to stay with the “messaging” and fundraising tactic to take back the House and haven’t comprehended what everyone else on the planet knows to be true.
We won’t have a Constitution or country left to take back in ‘22 and definitely not in ‘24, if Republicans in Congress don’t get their asses in gear.
If Republicans are worth their weight in salt then they better wake up and realize that they are leaving their own with no confidence and feeling like they have to take matters in their own hands.
Here is what must be done. Impeach Joe Biden. The GOP Conference must come together with Articles of Impeachment. Spend as much money as it takes to apply pressure on moderate Dems that know they will lose their seats if they vote NO on impeachment.
For the Republicans who are rolling your eyes saying it can’t be done, that exact attitude is everything wrong with our conference and your voters hate it.
I witnessed 10 Rs vote to impeach Trump and 11 Rs vote with Dems to kick me off committees. Those traitorous votes are exactly why we fail to achieve our goals. Mock me & be angry at me all you want, but it’s business as usual that fails. And even our enemies know it.
We may be short only a few votes but Biden has burned his own voters and many in his party. We start with Biden and go down the list. They are ALL responsible and ALL impeachable.
Republicans must take action or face the devastating reality of losing the trust and confidence of Republican voters going into ‘22, and many are already on the fence bc of the election and lack of real effort to fix it by elected Rs.
Ever since I’ve been in Congress, I have legislated exactly the way I talk on TV and in speeches. Minority or majority should not matter. We should fight just as hard no matter what. Do what we say we are going to do and fight no matter what.
After all that’s what the 13 American soldiers did that Joe Biden killed. They followed orders and did the job they were told to do. Why can’t Republicans in Congress do the same damn thing even if it looks hard?
Here is what doesn’t work. GOP Conference calls & meetings that are nothing but altar calls for money. Yes we have to raise money to take the House, but I will no longer be silent about half of the 20 “Republicans” that are benefactors of all that money for reelection.
The top 20 Republicans that the NRCC fights for contain 4 Republicans that voted to impeach Trump and 6 that voted to kick me off committees. And 1 did both. They call these moderate Republicans (or really some are Democrats in disguise) “majority makers.”
