Since being stripped of her committee assignments for supporting the execution of her now-colleagues, far-right Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has a lot of time on her hands.

That's likely why her constant erratic tweets have generated more news than her congressional achievements. Greene has used the social media outlet to promote deranged conspiracy theories, sow doubt in lifesaving vaccines, and to pick fights with her colleagues in Congress.

On Monday, Greene's target was the official Twitter account for College Republicans, which had the audacity to tweet well-wishes for Kwanzaa.

Established in the 1960s, Kwanzaa is a week-long Black American cultural celebration emphasizing principles of unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.

Greene falsely slammed Kwanzaa as a "fake religion" and berated College Republicans for "turning [voters] away" by wishing a happy Kwanzaa to those who celebrate.

Greene—who enthusiastically celebrates a genocidal rapist every year on Columbus Day—decried Kwanzaa for being created by Professor Maulana Karenga, who was convicted of assault in the early 1970s. She then accused the College Republicans of "pandering."

Greene's bizarre rant earned widespread backlash.

Key figures of the GOP insist that the party welcomes people of all ethnicities, cultures, and faiths. Greene herself, before voting against a bill to combat islamophobia, said as recently as last week that she and her fellow Republicans "completely are against hate of any kind against anyone."

But conservatives' reactions to something as simple as the phrase "Happy Kwanza!" painted a much different picture.

Many of them slammed Kwanzaa as a "made up holiday," apparently unaware of the origins of Christmas, Easter, Tuesdays, et cetera.
