Marjorie Taylor Greene:

    Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene is the congressperson-elect of Georgia's heavily Republican 14th District, and is clear proof that the Republican Party is broken beyond repair. Greene is, in no uncertain terms, a virulent racist and dangerous, conspiracy-addled crackpot. She's one of several new Republicans to attach themselves to "QAnon," a conspiracy theory modeled closely on anti-Semitic propaganda claims of a powerful worldwide collection of elites who are harvesting the blood of children because reasons, and that these elites consist of George Soros, all Democrats, and every last enemy of Donald Trump, in government and out of it. But it’s not just that Greene is a QAnon promoter. That bit is only part of an extensive list of conspiracy claims Greene has adopted. Greene has made numerous racist videos and rants condemning Black and Hispanic Americans, Muslims, and Soros. She speculated that the Charlottesville rally of white nationalists that resulted in violence and...

    Georgia GOP candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene officially won her race Tuesday and is now set to represent the state’s 14th Congressional District in Congress. Though Greene was always favored to win Georgia’s 14th district, a reliably conservative area in the northwestern part of the state, Democratic candidate Kevin van Ausdal dropped out in September, though he still appeared on the ballot. Greene had over 80% of the vote when the race was called by Decision Desk HQ. Greene, who is set to replace retiring GOP Rep. Tom Graves, gained national attention after making multiple comments criticized as racist and anti-Semitic. Greene has also been a vocal supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory and questioned whether 9/11 actually occurred before later saying that she believed it did.

    Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, a QAnon conspiracy theorist, has won Georgia’s 14th district, Decision Desk projected Tuesday night. Greene’s district is majority Republican — it voted 75% for President Donald Trump in 2016 — and she was expected to gain a seat in Congress after winning the district’s Republican primary in June. Greene’s support for QAnon, a baseless theory that alleges the president is secretly working with the military to unfold pedophiles, has been well-publicized. In May, she was photographed with Chester Doles, who’s described as a “longtime white supremacist activist” by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. In March, Doles, in a post referring to Greene, said, “She’s part of the Q movement. Good friend to have.” Greene has reportedly called “Q,” the alleged figure of the conspiracy theory, a “patriot,” and claimed, “He is someone that very much loves his country, and he’s on the same page as us, and he is...
    Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican candidate for Congress, has won her election for the House of Representatives. Hide The race was called by Decision Desk HQ. Hide Greene was among the batch of Republican candidates who support the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, which holds that an evil Satanic cabal of child-sacrificing, pedophile liberals controls the world. QAnon followers believe that President Donald Trump was sent by god to take down this fictitious cabal, and clues are being revealed by a shadowy government insider known only as “Q.” Greene has also made headlines for Islamophobic comments, such as that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed to hold public office and arguing that 9/11 was an inside job. Hide She made vilifying high-profile Democrats such as Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) a hallmark of her campaign for Georgia’s heavily Republican 14th Congressional district. Greene surprised many when she bested...
    QAnon’s takeover of the Republican Party continues, with Sen. Kelly Loeffler excitedly touting her endorsement for Q-friendly House nominee Marjorie Taylor Greene. Yes, a sitting U.S. senator considers an endorsement from a House nominee a big get. That’s partly because Loeffler is locked in a multi-way battle not just with leading Democratic challenger Rev. Raphael Warnock but with Republican Rep. Doug Collins, so locking down Republican voters is important to her. But it’s also because Greene has achieved celebrity precisely because of her conspiracy theorist leanings. If she was a run-of-the-mill Republican nominee in a deep red district, Loeffler would be happy, but maybe not quite this excited. When Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn endorsed Loeffler, it didn’t get the flashing red lights emoji, caps-locked excitement of the tweet announcing the Greene endorsement. Neither did the announcement of Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp's endorsement, even though you’d think that the endorsement of the governor of your state would be a big...

    The Georgia senator will appear with 9/11 truther Marjorie Taylor Greene on Thursday. Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) will hold a "major announcement" on Thursday with conspiracy theorist and GOP House nominee Marjorie Taylor Greene. Local media expect Greene to endorse Loeffler at the Paulding County press conference. Greene, who won the Republican nomination for Georgia's 14th District in August, has publicly embraced QAnon, a widely debunked conspiracy theory involving a cabal of powerful politicians — most of them Democrats — running an international child trafficking ring and working to undermine Donald Trump. The FBI has labeled QAnon a domestic terrorism threat.
    QAnon endorser Marjorie Taylor Greene will be attending a campaign event with Sen. Kelly Loeffler. A Wednesday press release announced that the two would be appearing together in an event on Thursday in Paulding County, Georgia. "Tomorrow, conservative businesswoman and political outsider Kelly Loeffler will be joined by future Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene for a major announcement in Paulding County," the statement read. Greene is running to represent the state's 14th congressional district. Her Democratic challenger announced in September that he would be dropping out of the race, leaving it a near-certainty that Greene would secure the seat. Greene has endorsed the QAnon conspiracy, which alleges, among other things, that a group of powerful politicians have been using their positions to set up a secret child sex trafficking ring. Georgia's Senate special election has Democrat Raphael Warnock leading the pack. Right behind him, however, are...

    Marjorie Taylor Greene QAnon is a grotesque conspiracy theory, bizarre and creepy even by the standards of conspiracy theories. Witness this single line from a Georgia woman, who said QAnon is “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles out.” But there’s the thing: That Georgia woman is Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is on track to be a member of the House of Representatives. And she’s not the only Republican nominee for office with a QAnon track record. Greene won her primary in a heavily Republican House district and then her Democratic opponent mysteriously dropped out of the race. Q-curious Republicans have also won primaries to challenge Democratic Senate incumbents in Delaware and Oregon. “While most people who run under the QAnon banner will be rightly laughed out of the voting booth, the fact of the matter is that a movement this broad, with this many followers, is bound to elect...
    Far-right Republican and QAnon supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene, who recently won a GOP congressional primary in an ultra-conservative district in Georgia, has made no secret of her deep hatred for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive Democrats she will likely be joining in the U.S. House of Representatives in January 2021. This week, Greene went out of her way to insult AOC on Twitter — and it did not end well for the Georgia Republican.

She has single handily put an end to all ‘dumb blonde’ jokes,” Greene tweeted. “Blondes everywhere appreciate your service and your sacrifice!” Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the left-wing “Squad,” highlighted Greene’s spelling error in her response. “Don’t worry Mrs. Greene, I completely understand why you need to swing + miss at my intellect to make yourself feel better.

    Facebook/Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress Georgia Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene, who supports QAnon, is likely headed for victory after her opponent dropped out. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican candidate for Georgia’s 14th Congressional seat and a supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory, has a clear path to victory in November, after her Democratic opponent dropped out of the race.

Greene previously supported the QAnon conspiracy theory and questioned whether a plane actually hit the Pentagon on 9/11. She recently walked back those remarks. Greene has received support from some Republicans, including President Donald Trump, Rep. Jim Jordan and Rep. Matt Gaetz. Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene leveled baseless accusations against Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib during a visit to the Capitol in February 2019, alleging that they supported Sharia law and were trying to embed it in the United States.

    (CNN)In the years before she ran for office, GOP congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote two conspiracy-laden blog posts speculating that the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that led to one counter-protester's death was an "inside job" and promoting a debunked conspiracy alleging some Democratic Party leaders were running a human-trafficking and pedophilia ring -- known as "Pizzagate" -- was real.Greene, running now to represent in the northwest corner of Georgia in the US House, made the comments in 2017 and 2018, writing for the now-defunct website of American Truth Seekers, a conspiracy-laden blog.In a Facebook post, Greene wrote that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was guilty of treason and suggested she could be executed.

    One of this summer’s most disturbing Republican victories came on Tuesday, August 11, when QAnon supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene defeated fellow Republican John Cowan in a primary in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District. Given how overwhelmingly Republican Greene’s district is, she is likely to win in November — and bring her pro-QAnon views to the U.S. House of Representatives. Journalist Julia Carrie Wong discusses Greene’s campaign in an article published in the Guardian on August 24, stressing that some well-known GOP mega-donors have supported the Georgia Republican despite her extreme views. Greene’s campaign, Wong reports, received financial support from “groups connected to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and his wife” as well as “the chairman of the board of prominent conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation” and “multiple Republican mega-donors.” WE WON! Thank you for your support! Save America. Stop Socialism. #sass Defeat the Democrats! ...
    Republican candidate for the U.S. House Marjorie Taylor Greene won her Georgia primary last week, prompting renewed scrutiny of her past support for conspiracy theories. Greene, who has three children and co-owns a construction company with her husband, won her Aug. 11 primary handily, beating out a field of five other candidates with 57% of the vote. Neurosurgeon John Cowan placed second in the primary with 43%. Greene ran a pro-Trump campaign, but her dalliances with conspiracies and her controversial remarks about immigrants, Muslims in Congress, black and Hispanic people, and other topics led many Republican lawmakers to condemn Greene and endorse Cowan. Greene did earn a congratulatory tweet from President Trump after her win, however. “Congratulations to future Republican Star Marjorie Taylor Greene on a big Congressional primary win in Georgia against a very tough and smart opponent. Marjorie is strong on everything and never gives up – a...
    U.S. House of Representatives Rep. Adam Kinzinger Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger, of Illinois, took to YouTube on Sunday, Aug. 16, to explain the bizarre QAnon conspiracy theory and warn of its proponents potentially entering Congress. Kinzinger’s video was the strongest denunciation of the conspiracy theory yet from an elected Republican and came as QAnon supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene was poised to likely win Georgia’s 14th District seat. There are at least 20 QAnon-supporting candidates set to be on ballots nationwide in November, Media Matters reported.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia congressional candidate who is a prominent QAnon advocate, is distancing herself from the far-right conspiracy theory amid increased media scrutiny. "No, it doesn't represent me," Greene, who recently secured the GOP nomination in a heavily red district that will likely send her to Washington, said during an interview with Fox News in response to the “QAnon candidate” moniker she has been dealt. "I don't expect a lot of the left-leaning media to change their stance," she said on Friday. "I think they're going to continue to attack me because they actually do see me as someone who's unapologetically conservative. And I won't back down on my beliefs and my values." The QAnon conspiracy alleges that a group of powerful sex traffickers is working to take down President Trump. The FBI has said that adherents to the theory could pose a domestic terror threat. The "Q"...
     After a brief hiatus, John Oliver returned to late-night to tackle a busy week of news — blasting President Donald Trump for promoting the racist conspiracy theory that Kamala Harris is ineligible to be vice president, and later going after QAnon-supporting congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene. Oliver briefly addressed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s choice for vice president before diving into the “depressing resurgence of birtherism” that followed. Only a few days after Harris was announced as Biden’s running mate, law professor John Eastman wrote an op-ed for Newsweek that mirrored the “birther” campaign against former President Barack Obama. Titled “Some Questions for Kamala Harris About Eligibility,” the article went after Harris’ eligibility for the vice presidency despite the fact that she was born in Oakland, California. “I heard today that she doesn’t meet the requirements,” Trump said of Harris during a briefing on Thursday. “And by the way, the lawyer that wrote that piece is a very...
    On Tuesday, the QAnon conspiracy cult achieved a disturbing victory when Marjorie Taylor Greene, a QAnon supporter, won a GOP congressional primary in Georgia — and President Donald Trump, on Twitter, congratulated her on her victory. Some Republicans have been willing to criticize Greene, including Rep. Liz Cheney. But Matter Gertz of Media Matters, in an article published this week, takes a close look at Fox News’ reluctance to call out the QAnon cult. In his article, headlined “Fox News’ dangerous dance with QAnon,” Gertz argues, “The network’s unwillingness to challenge QAnon, an all-encompassing extremist ideology which postulates that President Donald Trump is on the verge of uncovering a worldwide satanic pedophilia ring composed of Democratic leaders and celebrities. Fox and its cadre of right-wing stars could have tried to prevent QAnon’s rise. And as an overwhelmingly powerful force in conservative politics, they may have been able to do it...
    President Donald Trump doubled down on his praise for QAnon-supporting Republican House candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene, Friday upon being asked whether he agrees with the conspiracy theory. Associated Press (AP) White House correspondent Jill Colvin asked Trump, “You congratulated Marjorie Taylor Greene in a tweet. You called her a future Republican star. Greene has been a proponent of the QAnon conspiracy theory, she said it’s something that should be worth listening to. Do you agree with her on that?” “Well, she did very well in the election, she won by a lot. She was very popular, she comes from a great state, and she had a tremendous victory, so absolutely, I did congratulate her,” Trump replied, before quickly moving on to another reporter. Colvin then shot back at Trump by noting that he didn’t answer her question on whether he agrees with the QAnon conspiracy theory, however Trump ignored her...
    Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress/Facebook Controversial QAnon-supporting Georgia congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene, who won her Republican primary on Wednesday, has also previously questioned the 9/11 terrorist attacks. As flagged by Media Matters on Thursday, Greene previously said in a 2018 livestream, “We had witnessed 9/11, the terrorist attack in New York and the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania and the so-called plane that crashed into the Pentagon. It’s odd there’s never any evidence shown for a plane in the Pentagon. But anyways, I won’t — I’m not going to dive into the 9/11 conspiracy.” “But 9/11 had happened,” she continued. “Our country was very much into a war. We had invaded Iraq looking for weapons of mass destruction that we never found at that time. We were basically destabilizing the Middle East.” President Donald Trump congratulated Greene for her primary victory on Wednesday, despite the fact that she has...
    Winning candidates often receive a congratulatory message from an incumbent president. It’s one of those pro forma niceties of the Old Washington, and Trump’s staff craves moments that make him look like something other than a ranting, gouty old racist, so tweeting “Congratulations to future Republican Star Marjorie Taylor Greene on a big Congressional primary win in Georgia against a very tough and smart opponent. Marjorie is strong on everything and never gives up - a real WINNER!” probably seemed like a good idea. Hell, Republican victories these days are few and far between. But Marjorie Taylor Greene is crazier than a shithouse rat. We're talking weapons-grade, rabid, writing-your-manifesto-on-the-asylum-wall-with-your-own-feces crazy. Not to mention racist.  And Trump’s Republican party is increasingly full of Marjorie Taylor Greenes—elected officials and candidates who believe in the dangerously absurd QAnon conspiracy theory. The Party of Lincoln is now the party of Q. Thanks Donald!
    President Donald Trump will hold a news conference at the White House beginning at 5:30 p.m. EDT. on Wednesday night. The press briefing will come as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris wrap up their first joint news conference together after Harris was named the running mate for Biden, the presumptive democratic nominee. Following the announcement, Trump unveiled his new attack against Harris, referring to her as “Phony Kamala” before ripping her track record during Tuesday’s news conference. On Wednesday, Trump has congratulated and praised Marjorie Taylor Greene — who is now the Republican candidate for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District — for her campaign. Greene, though, is a noted QAnon supporter who has faced backlash from both sides of aisle. “Congratulations to future Republican Star Marjorie Taylor Greene on a big Congressional primary win in Georgia against a very tough and smart opponent,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning. “Marjorie is...
    On Tuesday, August 11, many conservatives were hoping that Marjorie Taylor Greene — a QAnon conspiracy theorist — would lose a GOP congressional primary runoff in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District. But Greene was victorious, defeating fellow Republican John Cowan (a neurosurgeon) by double digits. Now, a devotee of the QAnon cult will be competing with Democrat Kevin Van Ausdale in the general election, and Greene pulled off her primary victory with the help of well-known Republicans like Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Politically, Greene is a far-right Republican, comparing Democratic billionaire George Soros to Nazis and describing the 2018 midterms as an “Islamic invasion of our government.” And she has openly promoted the QAnon cult, which believes that President Donald Trump was sent to combat an international pedophile ring and that a mysterious figure named Q is providing updates about Trump’s battle....
    President Donald Trump has endorsed a congressional candidate who follows QAnon. Hide QAnon is a conspiracy theory that holds that an international cabal of Satanic pedophiles controls the world. They believe that Trump is trying to take down this network, which includes the so-called “deep state.” Hide Trump has previously given subtle and not-so-subtle nods to the conspiracy theory. This marks Trump’s first endorsement of a QAnon follower. There are numerous followers running for Congress. All are Republicans. Hide Yesterday, one of them, Marjorie Taylor Greene, won her primary in Georgia’s 14th District. In addition to following QAnon, Greene’s history includes doxxing, homophobic, racist, and Islamophobic comments. After Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) was elected to office, Greene said, “We have an Islamic invasion into our government offices,” Politico reports. She also insisted that Muslims shouldn’t be allowed to use the Quran in their swearing-in ceremonies. Facebook has removed at least...

    House candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a "bitch" during her acceptance speech after winning a Republican primary election in Georgia. Greene told her supporters on Tuesday that she was going to get Pelosi removed from Congress after winning her runoff election against John Cowan to become the GOP nominee for Georgia's 14th Congressional District. "She's a hypocrite. She's anti-American. And we’re going to kick that bitch out of Congress," she said. Greene also had harsh words for some of the Republican leaders in Congress. Several top Republicans had disavowed her candidacy because of videos she had posted using racist language and for her ties to the conspiracy theories touted by QAnon. GOP leaders such as Whip Steve Scalise had revoked their endorsements after the videos of Greene surfaced. "The GOP establishment, the media, & the radical left, spent months & millions of dollars...
