On Tuesday, GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene took to Twitter to vent her grievances against fellow Republicans who do not subscribe to her conspiracy theories about election fraud —calling them “coward RINOS”— and to attack the Democratic party as un-American for pushing vaccine mandates and social programs.
In her Twitter tirade, the Georgia Q-Anon evangelist promised to “take back the House” by endorsing a candidate who is primarying a GOP Congressman in a safely-Republican district in South Carolina. If she’s successful and her candidate wins the primary and the November election she will have increased Republicans’ hold on the House by exactly zero seats.
“Repubs must take the House back & FIRE Nancy Pelosi in ’22,” Greene tweeted Tuesday afternoon. “The only way to do that is w/ America First Repubs who fight & not cower in fear like so many spineless RINOs who care more about being liked by the Fake News & their Dem counterparts than they do about America First.”
The House candidate she is endorsing, Graham Allen, is primarying Rep. Tom Rice, a hard-core Republican who opposes masks and, along with his family, contracted COVID. Rice, first elected in 2012, did vote for Donald Trump’s second impeachment.
Allen claims on his website that he is running for Congress because “Tom Rice abandoned his duty to represent the conscience of the voters of his district when he sided with Nancy Pelosi to support the sham impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.”
Greene also attacked Democrats, falsely claiming they “are no longer an American Party. They’re the party of woke corporate communism. They’re party of AOCs Green New Deal which enslaves us to cheap Chinese energy. They’re the party of skyrocketing inflation, illegal invasion at the border, vaccine mandates & election fraud,” all of which are false.
Repubs must take the House back & FIRE Nancy Pelosi in ‘22. The only way to do that is w/ America First Repubs who fight & not cower in fear like so many spineless RINOs who care more about being liked by the Fake News & their Dem counterparts than they do about America First.
