Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Again Calls for ‘National Divorce’ Splitting U.S. into ‘Red’ and ‘Blue’ States – Republican Agitator Rep. More Power and Influence in Congress Her most recent outrageous remarks as she gains power.
“From the sick and jaded waking culture issues to the Democrats’ treasonous America’s last policy stuck in our throats, we’re done,” Green said. murmured President’s Day on Monday.
This isn’t the first time the 48-year-old lawmaker has called for a “national divorce scenario” that divides the country between Republicans and Democrats.
December 2021, she tweeted About this idea while suggesting that people moving from blue to red states should be banned from voting for a while.
Mr. Green’s provocative remarks sparked outrage among his congressional colleagues, who compared mask mandates to the Holocaust and previously endorsed many conspiracy theories like QAnon. House Democrats stripped Georgia Republicans of their commission quotas in 2021.
But Green recently made a focused effort to retract some of her most controversial statements, insiders previously reported. apologized For her statements in support of QAnon — and at the same time, Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy has become his staunch supporter as he pushed to become Speaker of the House.
After McCarthy’s election, which followed a string of no votes in the House, Green was appointed to top committee duties, including serving on the powerful Homeland Security Committee.
“Get ready, Joe Biden,” the far-right lawmaker said in a statement at the time.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy previously criticized Greene’s stance on certain issues.
“Marjorie Taylor Green’s past statements and endorsements of the school shooting, political violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories do not represent the values and beliefs of the House Republican Convention.” he said in February 2021“I unequivocally condemn these comments. I have condemned them in the past. I continue to condemn them today.”

It is unclear to what extent McCarthy controls far-right politicians. Ahead of his State of the Union address earlier this month, McCarthy promised that Republicans would not pull “childish games” in Biden’s speech.
However, Greene appeared with a giant white balloon, a reference to a Chinese spy balloon suspected of drifting over China, interrupting his speech and yelling that Biden was a “liar.”
Green after the speech told the New York Times She wasn’t worried at all about being punished for her explosion.
“I have the speaker’s support and he has my support,” she told the newspaper.
