Yesterday in the U.S. House of Representatives:
21st Century America.
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
I am no fan of mask mandates, but comparing them to the Holocaust is over the top & out of line.
One can object to government restrictions without evoking the worldwide tragedy of the Holocaust.
I stand with our Jewish brothers & sisters & condemn these disgraceful comments.

So carefully worded. And just who is this in reference to?
Some of the responses:
This was your first line in the sand? This one? Where have you been?
So you waited until @GOPLeader stood up against it before you had the guts to condemn it. Figures.
It’s a start.
Nah, you’re right. The probability of this occurring again approaches zero.
Name @mtgreenee as the person you disagree with or this this empty
She is the Republican Party
Say her name, coward
Vicky Hartzler throws Trump ally under the bus.
Vicky finally gets it right.
There are a few more comments.
Reely stoopit (May 25, 2021)
Grotesque and offensive willful ignorance doubles down – this morning:
Marjorie Taylor Greene @mtgreenee
Well hate freedom media would you look at this story.
It appears Nazi practices have already begun on our youth.
Show your VAX papers or no in person class for you.
This is exactly what I was saying about the gold star.
This is disgusting!

Currently, in Missouri [pdf]:
The responses to Marjorie Taylor Greene (r):
Unvaccinated students have been banned from K-12 and college for many years. Polio, smallpox, etc. This is nothing new.
We already have to get vaccinated to attend school. Are your children not vaccinated against polio or smallpox?
“Routine smallpox vaccination among the American public stopped in 1972 after the disease was eradicated in the United States.” – CDC
I couldn’t go to elementary school without my MMR vaccine as a kid, among others.
At least 24 states require college students to be vaccinated against meningitis; at least 16 states require Hep B shots.
Many colleges also require MMR and TDap shots.
All without being called Nazis.
You have a severe misunderstanding of:
A. Historical Nazis
B. The history of mandatory vaccines for schools.
You should ask one of @mattgaetz girlfriends to explain the second one before she goes back to high school in the fall.
Read the replies Mags. It’s already a thing. It’s already been a thing for years. Yet here you are just trying to rile people up because you absolutely KNOW the people who follow you are too dumb to know the difference. You play them for the fools they are. When will they learn?
What does that first sentence even mean?
I literally had to show my records to go to college in 2000, this is not new
Two thing separate the US from the rest of the world
I love the fact that you actually think you are smart!!!!
psst…Marge, when my daughters started college, they had to have proof of vaccinations. Come to think of it, when they started Kindergarten, they had to have proof of vaccinations.
Required vaccinations are nothing new, my kids needed their MMR, DPT, chicken pox, polio vaccines to go to school. Even back when I was a kid I was required! Do you know how absolutely ridiculous you sound?
You do know who the Nazis were, don’t you Marge?
False equivalency, Ms Greene. Even in your home state of Georgia since 01 July 2014 all students from grade 7 onwards must have must have received one dose of tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine and one dose of meningococcal (meningitis) vaccine.
Students already have to show proof of vaccinations for other pathogens before attending college, unless they apply for (and are granted) an exemption for religious or medical reasons. Campuses are germ factories; the many vaccinated protect the few who cannot be.
Marjorie Taylor Greene plumbs the depth of stupidity and evil.
The horrifying, noxious idea that Nazi attacks on Jews before their extermination were somehow NOT part of the Holocaust
Jews in ghettoes forced to wear the yellow star was part of the Holocaust
You stupid monster.
Her stupidity is not an excuse.
Does she understand that we have required vaccines in schools for decades?
Oh, stop. Y’all hate college anyway. You all are so good at not having any fundamental belief system. Owning libs isn’t political strategy, you psychopath.
You are vile.
Comparing the slaughter of 6 million Jewish mothers, fathers, grandparents, children, babies to requiring proof of a life-saving vaccine, so we can end a global pandemic?
What is wrong with you?
You need help.
Can you even read?
Marjorie Taylor Greene, in association with Matt Gaetz, spell the end for the modern Republican Party as a viable political party going forward.
The embrace of the GOP of these two clowns is an amazing act of self-sabotage.
Dimwit just learned schools require vaccinations? Just fu
It takes a special kind of stupid to double down on the holocaust comparisons.
And on and on.
“…For now, I will take her at her word, but I will be watching.”
Feb 4, 2021 Press Release
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO) released the following statement on Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene:
“The statements and conspiracy theories promoted by Representative Greene, including QAnon, calling into question school shootings, anti-Semitic and other offensive slurs and threats, have no place in the Republican party. To be clear, I find the statements and actions in question abhorrent and firmly untethered from reality. They only serve to place people in harm’s way and should be shunned by all Americans.
“It is also true that these actions took place before she was a Member of Congress, and her constituents appeared to largely be aware of them when she was elected. This is the People’s House, and removing Members from committee assignments for actions and comments prior to their service would set a bad precedent in Congress.
“I spoke with Representative Greene one on one last night and she made it clear to me she no longer believes the dangerous views espoused in her previous statements, and that she will not advance such views as a Member of Congress. She has now publicly expressed regret on the Floor of the U.S. House for her past actions and statements.
“For now, I will take her at her word, but I will be watching.”
Rep. Wagner (r) must have missed Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (r) floor speech last night.
“…It is also true that these actions took place before she was a Member of Congress…”
From Marjorie Taylor Greene (r), while a Member of Congress:
Congressional Democrats Threaten Yet Another Coup Attempt Against President Donald Trump
January 11, 2021
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JANUARY 8, 2021
Washington D.C. — Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene released the following statement on the Democrat threat of Impeachment:
“For the entire four years of the greatest Presidential term of our lifetime, Democrats led by Speaker Pelosi and radical Socialists in her party attempted coup after coup against President Donald Trump.
Whether it was threatening to remove the President with phony 25th Amendment attacks, ridiculous Russian collusion conspiracy theory lies, or false criminal accusations about a perfect phone call with the Ukrainian Prime Minister, Democrats tried to overturn the 2016 election because they simply couldn’t handle the results.
Not only have the radicals in the Democrat Party tried to throw out the will of the American people, they have attacked anyone who dares support this President.
Everyone remembers the last four years of political censorship by the Silicon Valley Cartel targeting President Trump and his millions of supporters. Everyone remembers the occupation of the Senate office buildings by the Communist Women’s March screaming lies about Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Everyone remembers the harassment of Republicans including Senator Rand Paul, who was surrounded by a violent Black Lives Matter mob in the streets of Washington, DC. And, of course, everyone remembers the entire year of domestic terrorism conducted by Antifa / BLM militants, and championed by Democrat elected officials.
Now, 12 days before the 2021 Presidential Inauguration, these same Democrats, following their marching orders from the activist spokesmen in the Fake News Media, are launching another lie-filled assault on our Republic by threatening to impeach our duly-elected President, yet again.
Speaker Pelosi’s pursuit of impeachment will not “heal and unite” this nation as Joe Biden has called for in speeches. Another coup attempt will only further inflame half of the country.
This Hail Mary attempt to remove President Trump is another attack on the Silent Majority that Democrats have always looked down upon.
I have a message for Democrats, including Joe Biden: the time of demeaning and destroying conservative Americans simply for their beliefs has come to an end.
The new generation of MAGA Republicans will not back down to your threats. We will not back down from the smear campaigns from the Enemy of the American People, the Fake News. And we will not be silenced by Big Tech who wants to end free speech.
We will stand up and defend the 75 Million Americans who you are trying to cancel and ruin the lives of for daring to reject your Marxist ideology.
President Trump taught us how to defend our values.
We aren’t going away. We will never give up.
America First. Always.”
That was after the sedition and insurrectionist breach of the Capitol.
And, from Representative Ann Wagner on Wednesday:
Consequences or not? Which is it?
Believe them when they show you what they are.
Sedition and insurrection? Why do you ask? (February 3, 2021)
