Even before her election to the House of Representatives in 2020, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene made waves as one of the most far-right candidates running for office in the nation.
Earlier this year, Greene was stripped of her committee assignments for her past support of deranged conspiracy theories—beliefs that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton murders children and drinks their blood, that space lasers were behind the devastating wildfires in California, and that school shootings were secretly coordinated by prominent Democrats to weaken support for the Second Amendment.
Greene has also expressed support for QAnon—the collective delusion that the U.S. government is secretly controlled by a covert network of satanic pedophile cannibals—and that former President Donald Trump was sent to expose them.
With Greene up for reelection in 2022, a conservative group—the Republican Accountability Project—is using her own past statements in a searing ad against her, set to air on the conservative Fox News network in her district.

The ad notes her support of Congressman Matt Gaetz, who is currently under investigation for the sexual trafficking of a minor.
Greene said of Gaetz:
"I've been outspoken, and I've said I stand with Matt Gaetz."
It recounts the time she harassed school shooting survivor and gun law reform activist David Hogg, with Greene shouting at him:
"You are using your lobby and the kids to try to take away my Second Amendment rights. You don't have anything to say for yourself?"
Her thoughts on Q, the anonymous internet personality purporting to be a government insider, whose posts led to the rise of the QAnon conspiracy theory:
"Q is a patriot."
Her suspicions that 9/11 was staged:
"It's odd there's never any evidence shown for a plane in the Pentagon."
It goes on to show a clip of her supporting the lie that Democrats "stole" the presidency for Joe Biden, and concludes with:
"Because of all the immoral, un-American things Marjorie Taylor Greene stands for, we don't stand with her. Sign the pledge to never support Marjorie Taylor Greene at accountability.gop."
The ad made a splash on social media.
Vile and gross. https://t.co/FpmYip3Zpe— Curlyque (@Curlyque) 1617904724.0

The fact that Matt Gaetz is horrifying doesn't mean we should forget that Marjorie Taylor Greene is appalling. https://t.co/KRCcLqcn7V— Bill Kristol (@Bill Kristol) 1617890059.0

Greene's likely opponent in 2022, Democrat Holly McCormack, is getting boosts in support.

It won't be for more than a year til the nation finds out who will represent Georgia's 14th District in the 118th Congress.
