If you haven’t seen Steny Hoyer’s epic takedown of Marjorie Taylor Greene during the debate on stripping MTG of her committee assignments, you really owe it to yourself to watch it.
Hoyer, for those of you who don’t know, is #2 in the House behind Nancy Pelosi.
The House did, in fact, with 11 Republicans joining the Democrats to do what is right. It should have been 111 Republicans, but it is what it is.
Hoyer reminded Republicans that just two short years ago (January 2019) the Republicans were willing to remove Rep. Steve King from his committee assignments for making remarks in support of white supremacy.1
Did Marjorie Taylor Greene feel chastised after being stripped of her committee assignments? (You all already know the answer to that one.)
Oh yeah, she’s planning to have fun with her free time.
Don’t worry, your reckoning ist still coming.
- Back in 2018, King spoke to an Austrian far-right publication about “the great replacement.” a far-right conspiracy theory that claims that “shadowy elites are working behind the scenes to reduce white populations to minorities in their own countries.” The theory gained notoriety after the alleged perpetrator of the 2019 Christchurch mosque shootings titled his manifesto after it.
- Madison Cawthorne is, of course, proof positive (like John Silber before him) that you can be disabled and an asshole at the same time.
