Numerous political and religious organizations—many of which are on the political Right and have expressed strong support for former President Donald Trump—have started to turn up the pressure on the Republican Party to take action against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) following another week that featured embarrassing headlines for the party related to past remarks made by the freshman member of Congress.
The move comes after various news reports published this week revealed that Greene had promoted conspiracy theories about 9/11 and major mass shootings, including Parkland, Sandy Hook, and Las Vegas. A CNN report also alleged that Greene had “repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians in 2018 and 2019.”
A separate report from New York Magazine noted that Greene has promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, including the claim that wildfires in California were started by Jewish space lasers “in order to clear room for a high-speed rail project.”
In response to the latest round of embarrassing headlines that Greene has generated for the political Right, conservatives, and the Republican Party, right-wing political and religious organizations have started to put pressure on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to take action. Some members of Congress have already indicated that they will introduce a resolution to expel Greene from Congress.
The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), which endorsed Trump and spent millions in this last election in an effort to boost him over Democrat Joe Biden, released a statement saying that it was working closely with House Republican leadership on the “next steps” in addressing the issues surrounding Greene.
