Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, of Georgia, sparked a fierce backlash on Saturday after firing off a tweet attacking Democrats as “the enemy within.”
“Yes there is an enemy within,” the QAnon Republican declared in her tweet. “And that enemy is a poisonous rot of socialist policies and America last sell outs who are pompous hypocrites that believe they are untouchable elites.”
Greene’s comments came during an extended rant as embers of both parties continue to condemn her for peddling conspiracy theories and promoting violence against Democrats.
Democrats have begun pushing for hearings in order to remove Greene from the House.
Twitter users were quick to respond To Greene’s comments, and they didn’t mince words.
Yes there is an enemy within.
And that enemy is a poisonous rot of socialist policies and America last sell outs who are pompous hypocrites that believe they are untouchable elites.

You just keep on spreading division…
You thrive on it…
It's a sign of weakness and lack of intelligence …

Enemies like those that attacked the capitol, enemies that excuse their behaviour, and enemies that instigated the entire attack.
These enemies are traitors and terrorists, the real question is are you with them or with Americans

The enemy within is worried about the enemies within. Classic.

That enemy is you (among others). But not the ones you accuse.
