Even before her swearing-in to the House of Representatives earlier this year, far-right congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia had achieved national infamy.
Greene was among the first sympathizers of QAnon elected to Congress. The QAnon conspiracy web hinges on the belief that former President Donald Trump was sent by God to expose a covert network of satanic cannibal pedophiles secretly controlling the United States government.
In 2017, before her election, Greene uploaded a video to social media praising the QAnon movement, saying, "there's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the President to do it."
She'd been in Congress less than a month before she was stripped of her committee assignments, following an onslaught of videos and social media posts, in which the Congresswoman claimed school shootings were secretly coordinated by top Democrats to weaken public support for the Second Amendment and in which she expressed support for the execution of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Greene has continued to embrace extremism since the censure. She's suggested shooting volunteer liaisons going door-to-door with information on lifesaving COVID-19 vaccines. She's said the only way to regain "freedom" is through "the price of blood." She's fully supported the characterization of Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota—one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress—as a suicide bomber.
And yet, Greene continues to warn that she and other far-right members of Congress aren't the "fringe" of the GOP, but its base.
Greene repeated that talking point yet again in an interview with white nationalist Steve Bannon, but this time Greene broadened the sentiment to apply to all Americans.
"I'm happy to be the face of the American people, and I'm happy to continue to come up to Washington, D.C. and tell this town and the people here exactly how real people feel."
"Real people" felt Greene wasn't representative of them at all.
They had some idea of who Greene could represent though.
It won't be until next November that the people of Georgia's 14th District will decide if they want Greene to continue representing them in Congress.
