The feud between two far-right members of Congress—Representative Dan Crenshaw of Texas and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia—doesn't show signs of letting up any time soon.

It all started last month, when Crenshaw told an audience that many members of the House's so-called Freedom Caucus were little more than "grifters" deliberately making incendiary claims to drum up former President Donald Trump's base, all the while falling short on actually supporting him.

As a member of the Freedom Caucus herself, Greene responded by claiming the Freedom Caucus doesn't represent some fringe of the far-right, but rather the majority of conservative voters.

This past weekend, Greene—a prominent conspiracy theorist—saw her personal Twitter account banned from the site for repeatedly violating its rules on COVID-19 disinformation, which Greene frequently peddled to her 400+ thousand followers.

Just as former President Donald Trump and other MAGA devotees did when they were banned for violating the private company's policies, Greene railed against Twitter's supposed violation of her free speech and called the outlet an "enemy to America."

In an Instagram story, Crenshaw addressed the development by accusing Greene of running a scam while doing nothing to promote "anti-censorship legislation."

Crenshaw wrote:

"That Marjorie scoffed at the notion of supporting anti-censorship legislation is indicative of her true intent: to remain a victim.

She doesn't want solutions and she doesnt [sic] care if you get censored. She just wants to be a victim so she can keep asking you for campaign donations. It's a scam."

If Greene's goal is to score campaign donations, it's working. Even before her ban, the far-right Congresswoman raised more than $3.5 million in small donations last summer despite serving on no committees.

The infighting made waves on social media.

Crenshaw's critics found themselves in rare agreement.

For the meantime, Greene is posting on the right-wing social media outlet, GETTR.
