Georgian Marjorie Taylor Greene faces continued controversy over social media posts touting ‘false flag’ plots.
Some US lawmakers call for the impeachment of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene following revelations of past social media activity endorsing conspiracies that a Florida school shooting was a ‘false flag’ event and calling for violence against Democratic politicians.
Congressman Jimmy Gomez, a Democrat from California, announced Tuesday that he will bring forward a resolution to expel Greene from Congress.
As if that weren’t enough to amplify conspiracy theories … a series of recent media reports have now confirmed that MP Marjorie Taylor Greene previously supported social media posts calling for political violence against the President of the House, members of Congress and former President Barack Obama, ”Gomez said in a statement.
The theory is based on unsubstantiated claims that interdimensional demons – or psychic vampires, according to the Adherent – are working with a cabal of liberal celebrities and policymakers to traffic children. According to theory, former President Donald Trump was chosen to defeat this cabal.
Greene has been a staunch supporter of Trump, fighting Democrats on issues ranging from impeachment votes to installing metal detectors at the door of the Chamber following the Jan.6 pro-Trump riot on Capitol Hill .
Trump faces a historic second indictment for allegedly inciting a riot during a speech with a Senate trial scheduled for February 9.
Greene’s controversies continued when news reports and media watchdog Media Matters released previously unreported posts last week claiming the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., Which has killed 17 people and injured 17 others, was supposed to inspire the fight against guns. legislation.
“I’m told Nancy Pelosi tells Hillary Clinton several times a month that ‘we need another school shooting’ in order to persuade the public to want strict gun control,” Greene said in a post on Facebook, according to Media Matters.
David Hogg, a shooting survivor who now advocates for gun control and has confronted Greene in the past, said it was “horrible” for an elected official to make such comments.
1/2 As we fight for peace, we also face massive amounts of death threats and armed intimidation just to no longer want our friends to die.
This is not the country we should be and it is not the country we should be.

“As we fight for peace, we also face massive amounts of death threats and armed intimidation just to no longer want our friends to die,” Hogg said on Twitter.
Greene also appeared to like an article in 2018 that “bullet in the head would be faster” to take Pelosi off, according to CNN.
Greene also wrote conspiracies about the Obama administration landmark Iran nuclear deal, and a commentator asked, “Can we hang them up now ??” referring to Obama and Clinton.
“The scene is getting ready. The players fall into place. You have to be patient. It has to be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them go, ”Greene replied.
Greene released a personal statement on Twitter which did not deny that she liked Facebook posts, but said many people have controlled her social media accounts over the years.
Fake News CNN is writing another bestselling article about me, focusing on my time before I run for political office.

Gomez is not the first lawmaker to seek his removal. Representative Jason Crow, a Democrat from Colorado, previously told CNN on Jan. 13, “We are looking at our options in the House on how to stop this. And whether it is an expulsion procedure, a censorship, we cannot leave that in place.
Expulsion from the House requires a two-thirds majority vote in the 435-seat chamber. Democrats currently hold 221 seats.
It remains unclear whether enough Republicans would join their fellow Democrats to kick Greene out.
