(PatrioticPost.com)- Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia caused a stir yet again this week when she took a stand against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her ongoing insistence that members of the House of Representatives wear a mask while on the House floor.
“You can’t discriminate against people because they won’t wear a mask, and today, I refused to wear a mask on the House floor,” Rep. Greene said in a video uploaded to her social media.
“And I received a warning from Speaker Pelosi that leads to fines if I continue to refuse to wear a mask…well, here’s what I think of your warnings Speaker Pelosi,” Rep. Greene said, as she fed the warning through a paper shredder and shrugged.
Rep. Greene has made somewhat of a name for herself. After she was stripped of her committee assignments by Democrats who were angry about statements she made before entering office – statements that she apologized for in a press conference – Greene has continued to be attacked by Democrats and the press.
However, her most recent comments suggesting that the mask mandate was comparable to the way the Nazis treated Jewish people might have been a step too far, with Republican leadership now reportedly considering what action they can take against Rep. Greene. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said that Greene is “wrong” and that her “intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling.”
Rep. Greene’s future in the House and Republican Party at this point is pretty uncertain, and regardless of whether you agree with her other statements or not, her opposition to the mask mandate has wide support across the country and even in Congress.
Rep. McCarthy last week put forward a resolution to adapt the House mask mandate to accommodate the Centers for Disease Control’s latest guidance, which encouraged people to stop wearing masks if they are vaccinated.
Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats opposed the resolution and refused to update the guidance.
