Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene made yet another wild assertion: that the violent mob storming the Capitol couldn't have been Trump supporters.
“If the #Jan6 organizers were Trump supporters, then why did they attack us while we were objecting to electoral college votes for Joe Biden?” she tweeted on Tuesday morning. The attack RUINED our objection that we spent weeks preparing for, which devastated our efforts on behalf of Trump and his voters."
Sure, MTG: the armed white supremacist rioters who stormed the Capitol carrying MAGA flags
and chanting “Stop the steal!” had nothing to do with Trump. Greene's words might seem ridiculous, but they're also dangerous; people read them and believe them. Do NOT believe a word that Trump's cronies say from here on out! #hatehasnohomehereever
Let's understand something here. The election on November 3rd was NOT stolen, it is clearly the Republicans and White supremacists under Trump, that are still in favor of suppressing Black and Brown voters from the very beginning. And to see someone like Greene saying that the armed white supremacist rioters who stormed the Capitol carrying MAGA flags
and chanting “Stop the steal!” had nothing to do with Trump?! The attack had EVERYTHING to do with Trump staying in power and further weakening our country. Guess what? I'm getting sick of this, other Black and Brown people are sick of this. Asians are getting sick of this. Hispanics are getting sick of this. American Indians, Eskimos and Muslims are getting sick and tired of this. But more importantly, that sign below tells it all. And if you still believe that the Nov. 3rd election was stolen, I pity you.
