Marjorie Taylor Greene Heading to Pariah Status with Republicans
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE TAKING HITS FROM ALL SIDES, EVEN CRAZY SUPPORTERS
If you are a lifelong Republican, your opinions on Marjorie Taylor Greene could fall into a broad spectrum. If you were a Reagan fan and were alive while he was President, you likely don’t appreciate her nearly as much as someone who listens to Tucker Carlsen every day. Well, appreciated seems to be a more appropriate word. Greene positioned herself on the far, far right as a histrionic cat caller and socially conservative, nationalistic racist. This is (or was) her foundational platform, pushing the boundaries farther than we would have imagined before she managed to get elected. But now, she has decided to actively participate in internal Republican politics while big players jockey for leadership positions. And, well, she’s well on her way to achieving pariah status, among Republicans.
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE CHOSE TO SUPPORT MCCARTHY’S BID TO BE SPEAKER
Anyone who isn’t a Republican has felt this way about Marjorie Taylor Greene since she first started broadcasting her odious opinions in public. But now she is losing the support of her hardline far right fans. How did this happen, and so quickly? The answer is really simple. All she had to do was join the ranks of erstwhile “centrist” Republicans in supporting Kevin McCarthy in his pursuit of becoming Speaker of the House. Since then, she’s also been in a very public catfight with her former ally and equally odious Lauren Boebert. Suddenly, there is now a ugly cohort of racists, nutjobs, anti-semites and far-right hacks who are out to get her. Of course, that group used to be her bread and butter support.
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE EVEN LOST SUPPORT FROM WHITE SUPREMACIST ALLIES
Stew Peters on Fox News now says Marjorie Taylor Greene is a fake, and her whole “wholesome Christian mom” image was a lie. Supposedly this is because she is a divorcee, which makes her a “two-bit whore.” Ouch. Then there’s the former Right Side Broadcasting network host who became a failed Republican congressional candidate Mike Crispi, who says McCarthy is blackmailing Greene. Evidently, that’s the only possible reason Greene would support his bid as speaker. And then there’s Nicholas Fuentes, the informal campaign associate of Kanye West. Greene denounced him in late November, even though she spoke at his annual AFPAC conference in March.
Fuentes now refers to Marjorie Taylor Greene as “Large Marge,” and has instructed his white nationalist fans to heckle her at campaign events. What can an opportunistic political creature like Greene do, when she’s lost the support of White Supremacists?
