Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) slammed professor Robert Reich on Sunday, calling him a “communist” after the veteran economist called for her removal from Congress for promoting hate.
“Can we all agree that Marjorie Taylor Greene must be expelled from Congress?” Reich said in an initial tweet.
The QAnon representative fired back, tweeting: “Don’t know you, but when I saw Berkley in your bio, I got it. Just put the hammer and sickle with it.” She added: “Being a communists professor, you’ve never done the real hard work that builds the economy, you just teach ideas that will destroy it.”
Reich shot back at Greene, saying “All you do is promote hate.”
“Hate is destroying our country. (Oh, and Berkeley is spelled with an “e” after the k.),” he said.
Greene is facing widespread backlash for comparing mandatory mask requirements on the House floor to the oppressive policies waged against Jews in Nazi Germany.
This year, The controversial congresswoman reportedly mounted an attempt to begin an “America First Caucus” that would focus on “Anglo-Saxon” political values. That plan has since been scrapped. She has also floated unfounded conspiracy theories about election fraud and space lasers as a cause for wildfires on the West Coast.
Earlier this month, she sparred with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) after Greene aggressively confronted her outside the House chamber. Some lawmakers have said they do not feel safe around Greene or her office.
All you do is promote hate. Hate is destroying our country. (Oh, and Berkeley is spelled with an "e" after the k.)
