(USA Features) Feisty Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene dumped on “weak Republicans” in a Twitter thread Saturday whom she accused of enabling “dictator Joe Biden” following his vaccine mandate last week for many businesses and federal employees.
Greene focused her ire on “colleagues” for their alleged “broken campaign promises” and warned her party must apply “real pressure” to Democrats in the coming months or they’ll be unable to win back the House majority next year.
“Dear Colleagues, Since Dictator Joe Biden started phase 1 of the Dems’ Communist takeover of America yesterday & I don’t have a GOP Conference call on my calendar or an email in my inbox from leadership to stop this insanity, well I’m going to be more direct than usual,” Greene, a freshman lawmaker, began her thread.
“After all, I ran for Congress because when Republicans controlled the House and Senate during the first two years of Trump’s presidency, they failed to deliver key issues that were of utmost importance to Republican voters,” she noted.
“Broken campaign promises like: Repealing Obamacare. Obamacare took my families premium from $800 to over $2400,” Greene continued. “Funding and building a border wall. Rs funded all kinds of things for foreign countries but wouldn’t build a wall for Americans.
“Defunding Sanctuary cities. Rs funded cities who harbor illegal aliens,” she went on, using “Rs” to denote members of her party.
“Defunding Planned Parenthood. During the first two years under Trump, Rs couldn’t even defund that disgusting abortion mill. No, they funded it. That’s … the one I really can’t get over,” she wrote.
Greene then took up for former President Donald Trump, who she argued pushed back on spending but to no avail.
“Remember that big Omnibus that Trump was so angry over, the one that made us all furious? Trump said never put another bill like this across my desk and the Republicans gave our great President no other option,” wrote Greene.
“It can not be overstated that when Republicans don’t do what they say, they give no reason for people to support them.”
Greene went on to praise Trump again.
“Along with millions of R voters, it was then that I realized that if Republicans can’t accomplish the most important and easiest of campaign promises, when they held a strong majority with a President like Trump, then they never will. So I ran for Congress and here I am,” she added.
Greene went on to say she speaks to “hundreds of thousands” of GOP voters around the country and in Georgia weekly and that her read is that “voters are fed up with Republicans in Congress doing nothing to stop Dictator Joe Biden and the outright destruction to our country.”
She said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., utilizes her “thin majority” in the House to “perform” on behalf of the Democrat base because she “can’t lose any votes, she needs her full conference to pass bills.”
And perform she does. I respect her for that,” Greene noted.
“Easy to perform when Republicans in the House apply no real pressure even though Democrat bills are so heinously un-American. The Communist Democrat agenda could be beat if my colleagues would legislate and take action the way many give interviews on TV,” she said.
She also pushed back on any notion that she doesn’t understand how things work in Congress because she’s just in her first term.
“The political pendulum has swung back & forth between Rs & Ds for decades & we’re $30 trillion in debt, on the brink of communism, at risk of economic collapse, being drug into full dependence on a global economy, & the experienced Rs want to lecture me on how it’s done?” she asked.
“You all should hear what your wealthiest most successful donors are saying about you all and your lack of real action while Democrats burn our country to the ground with a dementia patient at the wheel,” Greene continued.
“It’s beyond me that my Conference still chooses to stay with the “messaging” and fundraising tactic to take back the House and haven’t comprehended what everyone else on the planet knows to be true,” Greene wrote. “We won’t have a Constitution or country left to take back in ‘22 and definitely not in ‘24, if Republicans in Congress don’t get their asses in gear.”
Later, Greene lamented her conference’s inability to protect itself and be proactive in terms of holding Biden accountable, in her view.
“The Democrats impeached Trump for a phone call and a 3 hour riot and Biden is IMPEACHABLE for high crimes and treason,” she said.
“The Democrats want every Republican head on a platter and two feckless Republicans are on their witch hunt committee to make it happen and we can’t even kick those 2 traitors out of our own conference!” she added.
“Yes I am breaking the 11th commandant and believe me I love Ronald Reagan,” she said in reference to the late president who’s “11th Commandment” was that Republicans should not publicly criticize each other.
“But I refuse to sit by silent and watch our constitution burned like a sacrifice to the false gods of Marxism and our children’s future sliced up and served on a silver platter to Communist China,” she said.
