Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) became infamous for being one of the first supporters of QAnon to be elected to the House of Representatives.

The QAnon conspiracy theory revolves around the deranged fantasy that a covert network of satanic pedophile cannibals secretly controls the United States government and that former President Donald Trump was sent to expose them.

As the American public has learned in recent weeks, Greene's belief in QAnon was one of many delusions she publicly embraced prior to her election.

In addition to expressing support for the execution of her now-colleagues, Greene spouted conspiracy theories that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton murders children and drinks their blood, that the devastating California wildfires were sparked by Rothschild-owned space lasers, and that school shootings were coordinated by Democrats to weaken public support for the Second Amendment.

After refusals from Republican House leadership to hold Greene accountable for her unhinged diatribes, Democrats introduced House Resolution 72—which would strip Greene of her committee assignments on Education and Labor as well as the Budget Committee—and the House is set to vote on it Thursday.

Rather than denouncing this lunacy, Greene is blaming the all-too-common specter of "cancel culture," insisting that Democrats and the "bloodthirsty media" is out to get her.

She tweeted that this was because of her "identities and beliefs"—among them, her whiteness.

Claiming that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) would "pull every identity politics trick in the book" to save one of her members from rebuke, Greene said she was being targeted for being:

"White, Woman, Wife, Mother, Christian, Conservative, Business Owner"

Regardless of whether it was lost on Greene that Pelosi herself is at least five out of seven of these things, people scoffed that Greene listed "white" as a reason for the Democrats' measure.

People soon reminded her why she was actually facing accountability measures.

But though Greene faced backlash for the tweet, her statement—like the beliefs she amplifies—was praised by white nationalists for expressing "white positivity."

The House Rules Committee is currently debating H.R. 72.
