[COMMENTARY] ’10s of People’ Turn Out For Greene’s Sad Little Parade
What if you threw a parade and almost nobody came?
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA) posted videos to answer that question, which only led to more questions, like “Why would you post videos of no one showing up for you?” and “How are you still walking around free?”
One clip showed the QAnon Qrossfitter waving to a scattered crowd in Tallapoosa, Georgia, while another appeared to show her doing the same in a residential area in the same community.
Twitter was quick to point out the lack of enthusiasm for the attention-seeking insurrectionist and the lack of turnout, with one user writing, “Literally 10s of people coming out to see the crazy lady.”
Literally 10s of people coming out to see the crazy lady.

Of course, a little Twitter criticism is never going to stop Marjorie Manson. This trainwreck just keeps on a-rollin’. In fact, she’s working overtime now that nearly 40 House Democrats are demanding House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy take what they call “immediate action” to address her actions, which they say “could lead to violence against members of Congress.” (Horse, barn door, friend: January 6th was a while ago).
Not to mention I saw some footage from that "three mile long parade" and the crowd was… not crowded.

The group chose to take this step after Greene spoke as a warmup act for the former guy at his ego rally in Ohio last weekend. Greene, without evidence, repeatedly claimed Trump won the 2020 election and viciously attacked Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, calling her “little communist from New York City,” and nodded in agreement with the crowd when they started shouting “lock her up.”
AOC retaliated with a simple, shady line: “First of all I’m taller than her”.

The reality of McCarthy doing anything about Marjorie Manson is minimal as long as the Former Guy continues to hold his leash. Lil Margie is a favorite of Dear Leader’s, and Qevin is too qowardly to go against him or the base. But maybe Democrats will send another strongly worded letter, that’s going to keep Nancy Pelosi super safe from Not-Large Marge and her trigger-happy friends like Lauren Boebert and Madison Cawthorn.
CNN: Nearly 40 House Dems are demanding House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy take “immediate action” to address Marjorie Taylor Greene whose actions, they say, could lead to violence against members of Congress.
