Internet Suspicious Over Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Tweet The Day Before Attack On Pelosi’s Husband

Marjorie Taylor Greene

The brutal attack against the husband of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) by a right-wing extremist shocked Congress and the country. The attack put the spotlight on the plague of political violence that’s risen after Donald Trump’s emergence to power.

The attack was reminiscent of the January 6 attack on the US Capitol as the assailant who broke into Pelosi’s San Francisco home was shouting “Where is Nancy? Where is Nancy?”

The suspect then struck Paul Pelosi with a hammer, according to San Francisco’s chief of police, sending the 82-year-old to the hospital, where he underwent surgery to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands. Doctors said Mr. Pelosi is expected to make a full recovery.

The vicious attack marked just the latest in a long string of violent episodes — some physical altercations, some distant threats — targeting members of Congress and other government figures.

It has also added new fuel to the simmering debate over the real-life consequences of violent political speech.

One political figure who is notorious for promoting violence against political opponents is Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). One day before the attack on Paul Pelosi, the QAnon-aligned congresswoman fired off a tweet saying: “Wait until tomorrow.”

It’s not clear what Greene was referring to. But users couldn’t help becoming suspicious about her bizarre message, given her previous posts calling for the Speaker “to be executed for “treason.” Many wondered if Greene knew about the attack.
