Republican Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has already made waves in Congress for her belligerent behavior and prior support for conspiracy theories and the execution of her now-colleagues.
On Tuesday, Greene doubled down on disturbing comparisons between pandemic safety precautions and the Holocaust, likening vaccine verifications implemented by private businesses to the yellow stars of David that Jews were forced to wear in Germany ahead of and during World War II.
Greene said in a tweet:
"Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi's [sic] forced Jewish people to wear a gold star.
Vaccine passports & mask mandates create discrimination against unvaxxed people who trust their immune systems to a virus that is 99% survivable."
She went on to say:
"Pretty soon it will be..
'We only hire vaccinated people, show your vax papers.'
'We only admit vaccinated students, show your vax papers.'
'These bathrooms are only for vaccinated people, show your vax papers.'
Then.. ...scan your bar code or swipe your chip on your arm."
The deranged rant prompted a rare rebuke of Greene from House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, who's faced widespread criticism for his hesitation to discipline Greene for her unwell behavior.
Greene, who accused Democrats and the media of twisting her words, went on to push back against Republicans like Ben Shapiro for criticizing her.
Then she tweeted—and promptly deleted—a post thanking a supporter for defending her, while calling McCarthy a "feckless c**t in the process.
Greene said in the tweet:
"Thank you for seeing the truth and how much I support Israel and stand against the left's support for Hamas terrorists."
Greene deleted the tweet six minutes after posting it, but the internet is forever.
They also used the tweet to call out McCarthy's leadership—or lack thereof.
McCarthy has yet to respond to the insult.
