Marjorie Taylor Greene

In today’s #vatnik soup I’ll introduce an American, pro-Russian politician and a conspiracy theorist, Marjorie Taylor Greene (@RepMTG). She’s also a US representative for Georgia and member of the Republican Party, and is best known for her love of guns and QAnon.

She started her political career after the 2016 Republican Party primaries, and in 2017 she was writing dozens of articles for fake news blogs such as the American Truth Seekers and Law Enforcement Today. In 2018 she was also “moderating” a FB page for the Family America...

... Project, an organization known for posting death threats against Democrats, racist post against the Obama’s and generally supporting the wackiest conspiracy theories out there.

Greene knows her audience and campaigns accordingly: ...

... she’s shared a meme of herself holding a AR-15 rifle next to collage of various Democratic politicians. Nancy Pelosi called this a “threat of violence” and the post was removed, after which Marjorie said that she was being the victim of “cancel culture”.

Later on she went and called Pelosi a “hypocrite” & a “bitch”. She’s also expressed support for execution of FBI agents & some leading Democrats, including Pelosi, Obama and H. Clinton. When asked about their hangings, she said “Stage is being set. [...] We must be patient.”
In the eyes of Trump, Andy Biggs, Matt Gaetz, Charlie Kirk, and L. Lin Wood, she was apparently the perfect candidate to represent the US demographic who loved guns, conspiracy theories (and possibly opiates, too).

Marjorie is also a stout supporter of Russia and Putin.

In Mar, 2022, she said that “Ukraine just kept poking the bear, poking the bear which is Russia, and Russia invaded” and that “There is no win for Ukraine here”. She concluded that “Russia is being very successful in their invasion.”

She also declared that “NATO has been supplying the neo-Nazis in Ukraine with powerful weapons and extensive training” and concluded her message with the hashtag #NATONazis. She has also voted against every sanctions proposal against Russia and aid package for Ukraine.

Greene identifies as a “Christian nationalist”, which may also explain the close relation with the Russians: Putin has been described as a global leader of the Christian nationalist movement.

Marjorie has supported many, many conspiracy theories in the past, including white genocide, Great Replacement, Sandy Hook school shooting, Camp Fire space solar generators and of course QAnon.

Greene hasn’t only supported existing conspiracy theories, she’s also made her own - she has suggested, that to make Republicans go along with gun control, 4th of July Highland Park mass shooting was organized to happen during “MAGA month”.

Marjorie has suggested that there are links between Hillary Clinton, pedophilia and human sacrifice, and she has stated that the Pizzagate is real. She discovered QAnon through Liz Crokin, and said that many of Q’s prophecies “have really proven to be true”.

In her famous quote, she said that “There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles out, and I think we have the president [referring to Donald Trump] to do it.”

She later distanced herself from the QAnon movement.

Marjorie was condemned and criticized by several representatives, which eventually made her to delete some of her old social media posts. She was also removed from House Committee assignments. Greene might also be the first person to be condemned by the CrossFit community.

She’s also referred the US Capitol police as “gazpacho police”, confusing the delicious Spanish soup gazpacho with the secret police of the Nazi Germany, Gestapo.

Greene’s personal Twitter account was reinstated by Musk in Nov, 2022.
