Controversial Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Facebook page has been found to support calls to assassinate Democratic politicians.
CNN conducted a review of the newly elected Georgian congresswoman’s social media posts throughout 2018 and 2019 and it was fairly dramatic.
Greene, who is a supporter of the baseless QAnon conspiracy, liked a comment in January 2019 that said ‘a bullet to the head would be quicker’ to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
She also liked posts that called for the execution of FBI agents who she believed were working for the ‘deep state’.
In 2018, after being asked by one commenter how they could ‘hang’ former President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Greene said: “Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off.”
The discovery of the disturbing comments has reignited calls for Greene to resign. It followed previous claims from survivors of the Parkland shooting that she called the tragedy a ‘false flag’ operation.
In a statement posted to her Twitter page, Greene didn’t specifically deny the claims, saying: “Over the years, I’ve had teams of people manage my pages. Many posts have been liked.
“Many posts have been shared. Some did not represent my views. Especially the ones that CNN is about to spread across the internet.”
Majorie Taylor Greene’s support of extremist content, including QAnon posts, led to her being temporarily banned from Twitter earlier this month.
She called Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling a ‘moron’ and ‘little’ after he blamed Republican losses in Georgia on election fraud conspiracy theories pushed by Greene and others.
She also, in a now deleted tweet, called for people to ‘mobilize’.
“Just days after Silicon Valley Cartel launched a multi-front attack to chill free speech in America by deplatforming President Donald Trump and purging an unknown number of conservatives, Twitter has decided to suspend my personal account without explanation,” Greene said at the time.
“The borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on the American political discourse is out of control.
“If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of ‘inciting violence’ simply for having a conservative view.
“Americans rights are being stripped and they aren’t being heard by the people they elected to represent them. And with Big Tech silencing them, they literally can’t be heard. The censorship has got to stop.”
