Here’s What Marjorie Taylor Greene Said That Triggered Liberal America…Again by Matt Vespa for Town Hall
She knows how to get attention. That’s for sure. She knows how to work the media and she certainly knows how to trigger the Left. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) adds to the zest of politics in DC. It may not be to your liking, but she’s off the reservation and there are times where we need people like that. She was booted from her committee assignments over her outspoken views. I hope Democrats are paying attention to the precedent they have set because when the GOP retakes Congress in 2022, a ton of Democrats could be tossed over the ‘we don’t like you’ doctrine set forth by them. So, what did Greene do now? Well, she rehashed something that’s been talked about before…the national divorce between blue states and red states (via NY Post):
Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene renewed calls for a “national divorce” between red and blue states, arguing that Americans who move to conservative states from California and New York should have a “cooling off” period before being allowed to vote.
The outspoken GOP congresswoman tweeted her comment Wednesday in response to a thread from a man who said he was moving from the San Francisco Bay Area to Miami, and was wary of Florida politics.
Greene, 47, agreed with a Twitter user who supported “discriminating against transplants” by imposing a “sin” tax on them and banning them from the polls “for a period.”“
All possible in a National Divorce scenario,” Greene wrote. “After Democrat voters and big donors ruin a state like California, you would think it wise to stop them from doing it to another great state like Florida. Brainwashed people that move from CA and NY really need a cooling off period.”
