  1. The UK has its problems but if any politicians spoke like that they would be thrown out of their party

    1. @Andy Mills I’m not defending Marjorie Taylor Green…she’s a lunatic. I’m not impressed with UK politics either. They definitely have their own issues to worry about.

    2. The UK has its share of interesting characters like Nigel and Jacob Rees Moog but their worst days are nothing like what we have

    1. @psycobleach46 tullis no they wouldn’t of. The UN doesn’t dictate wrongs & rights, especially when it comes to the US or it’s allies. I don’t need to read the link you sent. I actually understand what I‘m talking about while you deflect & spread misinformation that’s literally wrong.

    2. Fascitic traitors who stand firm with Trump’s warlike posture against the Democratic Majority to establish an American Apartheid in their version of righteous minority rule?

    3. @psycobleach46 tullis I don’t know what you call moving into land that’s already occupied, moving those natives to designated land, deciding what infrastructure they get, stealing most of that infrastructure, illegally occupying that land you ‚gave‘ them, & striking every part of that land indiscriminately, but I‘d call it ethnic cleansing. There’s plenty of videos & articles of exactly this except you choose to send me the ones that pander to Israelis & outright lies about the timeline of events instead of the many that say the exact opposite. If I start posting those & you disagree, is it also because you’re right? Hamas isn’t better than the IDF. They are equally awful. Except Hamas is making rockets out of their bath tubs with no anti air defense or warnings & the IDF is getting military equipment from the US with Iron Domes, shelters & an app to give warnings of strikes during a war they started. Do *you* understand that? But hey, just shrug & say ‚what we’re they suppose to do they‘re an ally so they can do whatever they want‘. How about defund Israel & don’t be an ally of a state committing ethnic cleansing until they stop illegally occupying land that doesn’t belong to them & stop trying to cleanse them. The only solution is a one state solution where Palestinians & Israelis have equal rights, & dissolve the IDF so there will be no use for Hamas to the Palestinians. There’s a reason you‘ve said so little & what you have said is either an outright lie or incredibly misguided, because you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    4. @Goblins From Mars please give examples. I’m totally clueless about the hate, and I’d like to look that up.

    5. @Horizon Eyes yes it does, that is why they were created. I don’t think you do, seeings how there is NO ethnic cleansing going on, if Israel wanted to do that they could.

  2. This is exactly why removing historical facts from being taught in schools is damaging to children.

    1. @Richard Fortner The States’ Rights Democratic Party (whose members are often called the Dixiecrats) was a short-lived segregationist political party in the United States, active primarily in the South. It arose due to *a Southern regional split in opposition to the Democratic Party. After President Harry S. Truman, a member of the Democratic Party, ordered integration of the military in 1948 and other actions to address civil rights of African Americans, many Southern conservative white politicians who objected to this course organized themselves as a breakaway faction* The Dixiecrats were determined to protect Southern states’ rights *to maintain racial segregation*

      In American politics, the Southern strategy was a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among *white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans. As the civil rights movement and dismantling of Jim Crow laws in the 1950s and 1960s visibly deepened existing racial tensions in much of the Southern United States, *Republican politicians such as presidential candidate Richard Nixon and Senator Barry Goldwater developed strategies that successfully contributed to the political realignment of many white, conservative voters in the South who had traditionally supported the Democratic Party rather than the Republican Party. It also helped to push the Republican Party much more to the right*

      The Unite the Right rally was a white supremacist rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, August 11–12, 2017. Far-right groups participated, including self-identified members of *the alt-right, neo-Confederates, neo-fascists, white nationalists, neo-N, K and various right-wing militias. Some groups chanted racist and antisemitic slogans and carried weapons, Nazi and neo-Nazi symbols, the Valknut, Confederate battle flags, Deus Vult crosses, flags, and other symbols of various past and present anti-Islamic and anti-Semitic groups* The organizers’ stated goals included *unifying the American white nationalist movement and opposing the proposed removal of the statue of Lee from Charlottesville’s former Lee Park*

      Facts don’t care about your feelings

    2. @Scott M And the history of when the parties shifted. Yeah that history. What was called the Democrats in those days are the Republican party today. You didn’t pay attention in class did you?

      “Sometime between the 1860s and 1936, the (Democratic) party of small government became the party of big government, and the (Republican) party of big government became rhetorically committed to curbing federal power. “

  3. You know what makes my blood boil? Thinking about how many Ronald Greens have had “Tree Accidents” in them parishes.
    #AbolishTheParish

    1. @Brad Calhoun Oh absolutely, that was a disgusting use of excessive force and I still feel uneasy using that phrase because some could reasonably argue it was plain murder. How anyone denies that there is something wrong with the system is beyond me, but I was just guessing (through the Nytimes article posted) that’s what the original commenter meant by “parish” in his/her first post.
      Edit:just realized you were the original commenter haha.

    2. @BD yeah. My Great Grandfather suffered a much more atrocious, but similar death in the 1930s. And the Land My Great Grandmother owned was stolen. It was the larger majority of Madison, Tensas, and Franklin parishes.

    3. @Brad Calhoun Ohhhh I see now. I’m so sorry to hear this, what an ugly part of America’s past this system and pattern of behavior is.

    1. I know it’s hard to hear it, but it already is so much worse. They are just reporting on what is happening and having a very human response to the evil from MTG. If we don’t hear about it, then it festers and gets more powerful in echo chambers created by MTG and her evil comrades. Their followers hear it, but we don’t. And they will get stronger and more capable of more destruction of our democracy. We have to hear it, keep,talking about it, and bear the pain of it all. Otherwise, the alternative is losing our democracy.

    2. They are giving her the attention she wants. She wants pissed off left-wing media she wants to start drama. She wants to be the topic on the news she likes it she thrives off it. As long as the media is giving he attention she will never stop.

  4. You can tell she thought the comparison to the Holocaust was actually a groundbreaking thought. She might have asked herself “Why has no one else said this yet?” at one point, in a moment of twisted and idiotic pride.

    1. yup. And they have the nerve to say AOC and others are anti-semitic. They have no proof. They shouldnt be allowed to blatantly lie to their base like that. Those dummies don’t know any better. They eat it up and enjoy it.

    2. She comes from a district that elected her over a neurosurgeon. Tell a lot about the people in N.W. Ga.

  5. I heard her say that, and was just like, “Dayum… if I’m ever that stoned, I hope I die before I come down.”

    1. @santa fe, bantayan island life
      Unfortunately, I have to break your delusion. The whole world knows, that Trump lost the election. And there are more of us than you.
      Biden got over 81 million votes, Trump got just over 74 million votes, it already shows, that Trump is supported by a minority in your own country.

    2. @Anu Litja 81 million he couldn’t even get 2,000 people to show up at his rallies….yeah…he got 81 mil

  6. Twain’s old adage, “The nation is divided, half patriots and half traitors, and no man can tell which from which.” Is no longer true. We can tell the difference now. It’s very clear.

    1. @Hfjdsj Skssksk if you’re speaking of Donald Trump as far as openly supported racist dear God the video he showed toward the end is a blade and lie watch the whole clip. This is honestly been disproven many many many times. If I can find a clip I’ll clip it here. But the clip you watch when he shows it on CNN right there is edited.

    2. @Dicky Jones it’s the Republicans trump got cash and deals in China and Russia , bush sold a lot of our debt and manufacturing to China , trump in bed with Putin so it’s the Republicans

    3. @Raza Para La Republica Confused…all the leaders where Biden won, all votes were verified by mostly Republicans, and stated that this 2020 election was one of the most secure in voting history…so, why the new laws? Sounds like BELARUS to me. One party wants an elected dictatorship (republikkkans), while the other wants free elections open for all (demoncats). Sounds to me that there is something in the kool-aid Republikkans are drinking. It ain’t the libs that are snowflakes, it’s the red republikkkan children, crying, cancelling things, being little babies, when they lose they change the rules. Remember when you were a kid, and those kids that would get mad when they lost would take the ball home, and what was it we called these poor sports? Now we call them Republikkkans.

  7. The USA needs to do mandatory psychological testing before allowing just anyone to run for public office.

    1. @buddy maynard she is just getting press playing the game. AOC refuses to give her publicity, she knows the games these Red Idiots play

  8. Our representatives need to be vetted and given a psychological evaluation before they are sworn in to office.

    1. Wouldn’t hurt if they took a history and geography test as well. MTG thinks Guam isn’t a part of the United States. Geez

    2. @another one President Biden saved lives from the Covid Pandemic while Fatman Trump went golfing every day. Did Trump ever console anyone who’s family members or friends or spouses died from Covid? No, I didn’t think so.

  9. Saying “the Nazis treated Jews like 2nd class citizens,” is like saying, “Jeffrey Dahmer was unkind to his victims.”

    1. @Steve Marz First, what are you talking about? It does not appear any of you bothered to type in the you tube search box: Jews for Trump rally erupts in violence
      Site is 9 News Australia.
      Preettty easy to do. That was what I was referring to . Can’t have a conversation about something you won’t even bother to look upp.
      OMG. Look it up. They actually travelled to New York because that is what true journalism is. OMG.

    2. @Michelle Dax bullshit. Did they poll Jewish CEOs who are taking one for the team for the awesome white collar tax breaks?

    3. @Michelle Dax Sure it was erased. I’m sure it was a totally valid source of polling data that was censored in the US and only Australia has the real info..

      MTG would cut off her own arm for that data if it was true. It would keep her from saying total idiotic bs to have any fact on her side.

  10. In Germany, where I live, you would have been permanently banned from any major political mandate, even in most of the right winged partys we have

    1. Germany is rife with right wing n special forces just got raided over AH.. ADF party are SS..
      east Germany is an melting pot for racism..

    2. Its beyond comical to see how Americans kick back when anyone else says the truth, the most racist country in the world by a long way, you only have to watch TV, internet, social media, you can’t hide from what you are anymore, its out there…..

  11. When the others in congress remain silent on what she said , they are at the same level of evil and lunacy as she is . That’s what América is being led to , a great nation of evil and lunacy …..

    1. What lunacy? There isn’t any. What, she believed some stuff that turned out to be BS?

      May you one day be able to look back on the lunacy you believed in with clarity and be able to say you no longer believe it without a “news” organization smearing you. Why don’t you humble yourserlf and let go of this bandwagon narritive? Humility is a good thing, it means you pay attention to your ego. You knew what was what, don’t you remember what that is like? How do we know if we are brainwashed or not?

    2. Don’t get discouraged, Hon. They’ve been there all your life. If you’re just now seeing them, well, you had a breathing space for awhile. Now let’s you and me go stand up with the people who have been staring them down every day of their lives. You, me, and We the People … we’re in good company.

  12. M. Greene is crazy. When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time, Maya Angelou.

    1. Amazing that Greene doesn’t understand that mask wearing is a life saving measure. More amazing that Republicans aren’t attacking her dumb, dangerous comments on mass.

  13. When one lives in a bottomless cesspool, it is impossible for that person to ever hit rock bottom. She has no shame.
