Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14)

Representing Georgia’s 14th congressional District since 2021, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has spewed racist conspiracy theories in floor speeches, campaign ads, and from her official social media accounts. Greene’s notoriety isn’t from being an effective policymaker or legislator but one of the most vocal nativists of the GOP House caucus. She has stuck with Donald Trump through thick and thin, from defending the January 6th insurrection to continuously promoting the Big Lie to undermine the confidence in our electoral process to refusing to condemn his horrific rhetoric echoing the language of Adolf Hitler.

Notably, Greene sponsored a privileged resolution to impeach DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas that relied on language associated with the deadly replacement conspiracy theory. Subsequent hearings and remarks related to this bogus impeachment effort highlighted the extremism now gripping the GOP, with members claiming that Mayorkas has “violated his oath” and “facilitated an invasion.” This rhetoric is inextricably tied to white nationalist conspiracy theory. Members further called for “deporting” Mayorkas, who is a naturalized U.S. citizen, the highest-ranking Latino in the Biden administration, and the first Latino to head the department.

When Trump confidently claimed that immigrants were “poisoning of the blood” – a phrase used by the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler to justify the genocide of the Jewish community in Germany – Greene remained silent. This was not surprising, considering her past antisemitism remarks. She has spewed and shared antisemitic remarks since at least 2018 when she shared a video on Facebook of a well-known antisemite claiming that “Zionist supremacists have schemed to promote immigration and miscegenation.”

Greene’s continued echoing of antisemitic conspiracy theories and associations with known white nationalists define her bigotry (despite her claims she is not a bigot.) Her words and actions make it clear. In 2022, Greene spoke at a white supremacist event organized by antisemite and Unite the Right rally attendee Nick Fuentes. Greene has also posed for photos with a KKK leader and promoted openly racist ideas, including that Muslims shouldn’t hold elected office. A moderate wing of the GOP no longer exists. It is now led from the extreme right by people like Donald Trump and Greene.
