Republican Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is once again in hot water for likening health policies amid the pandemic to the genocidal rule of the Nazi party.
This time, Greene was slamming President Joe Biden's effort to convince the country to get a vaccine for the virus that's killed over 600 thousand Americans.
As dangerous new variants of the virus continue to emerge, Biden said we needed to "go community-by-community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, and oft times door-to-door, literally knocking on doors" to get remaining Americans vaccinated and protected.
Greene railed against that effort in an ill-advised tweet.
Biden pushing a vaccine that is NOT FDA approved shows covid is a political tool used to control people. People ha… https://t.co/urx48B2GAt— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸) 1625604877.0
Greene said Americans didn't need Biden's "medical Brown Shirts" knocking on their doors, alluding to the Nazi paramilitary infamous for intimidating and brutalizing Jews and other perceived enemies of the party.
To make matters worse, Greene had already generated widespread condemnation for comparing the vaccine verification policies of private companies to Nazi demands that Jews identify themselves wearing yellow Stars of David on their clothing.
That tweet came after she told the Christian Broadcasting Network:
"You know, we can look back at a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about."
Greene's comments and her initial doubling-down received near-universal backlash, and even a rare rebuke from House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy of California. Greene subsequently took a tour of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in D.C.
After touring the facility, she said:
"There's nothing comparable to [the Holocaust] ... I know that words that I have stated were hurtful, and for that I'm very sorry."
Now, less than a month later, Greene is making these comparisons again—and people are calling her out.
This dumb ass went to a Holocaust museum and learned new ways to insult the memory of 6 million Jews. Unreal. https://t.co/8Uf2LhFsDc— Hoss Bonaventure, C.E.O. (@Hoss Bonaventure, C.E.O.) 1625657968.0

It's unclear if Greene intends to apologize for this latest offensive comparison.
