Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene declared on Wednesday that Democrats and the media are “the real racists” as Republicans face widespread backlash for promoting the so-called “white replacement” conspiracy theory that led to the mass shooting in Buffalo, New York last Saturday.
during an appearance on Real America’s Voice, Greene said “the mainstream media should take a look at race a little more clearly and see that they’re, the leftists in the media are the real racists” in the country.
She also claimed that D.C. Jail Deputy Warden Kathleen Landerkin “hates white people” like the pro-Trump defendants who stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
“She specifically mentioned white men,” the Georgia Republican told host David Brody. “So while the national media is losing their mind over white supremacy, trying to blame Republicans for white replacement theory, trying to link us to this mentally-ill deranged teenager that killed people in Buffalo, you know they ignore things like shootings here in Washington, D.C. under Mayor Muriel Bowser’s purview.”
“They completely ignore people like Kathleen Landerkin that is so racist herself and that she hates the people that she has in her jail,” Greene said.
Republicans have received harsh criticism for enabling white supremacy and domestic terrorism by refusing to condemn the racist rhetoric peddled by members of their party.
