Far-right Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has routinely encouraged violence among her supporters.
Framing herself as a Washington outsider with undying loyalty to former President Donald Trump, Greene has suggested shooting volunteers who go door-to-door with vaccine information and, before her election, expressed support for the execution of her now colleagues. She's advocated for a so-called "nonviolent" Capitol rioter who was caught on video assaulting a Capitol police officer.
Currently, the nation is watching the murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenage vigilante who shot three people with an AR-15 during unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake by police.
Predictably, Greene has repeatedly praised Rittenhouse and called for his acquittal.
And in a bizarre Sunday tweet, Greene called on her Twitter followers to take a page from Rittenhouse's book and buy an AR-15.
Greene suggested that AR-15s—which are designed to kill as many people as rapidly as possible—are equal to any other tool used to kill people. She also boasted that AR-15s are easy to hold "especially for women."
People surmised that Marjorie Taylor Greene was once again tacitly condoning violence.
But Greene's supporters applauded the message.
Greene, who says she needs an AR-15 to protect herself and her family, remains unvaccinated and refuses to wear a mask on the House floor.
