[COMMENTARY] Greene Slammed For Giving Supporter AR-15 Pistol. Oh, And She Also Invested In Companies Who Support BLM.
Gun-loving conspiracy theorist and freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA) sponsored a giveaway to her supporters who gave their names, email addresses, and zip codes to her re-election campaign. The prize? A “Honey Badger”, which is an AR-15 pistol valued at $2,860.
Greene posted a picture of the “lucky winner” on Monday, and of course, Twitter immediately roasted her for glorifying gun violence as America continues to be plagued by mass shootings almost weekly. Over the weekend, seven people were killed and more than 40 were injured in 10 mass shootings across the US. In just three days.
And yet there was Greene, proudly pushing the semi-automatic weapon that features a seven-inch barrel and a “cherry bomb muzzle brake,” which must be a thing with gun people. The recipient of the weapon built solely to cause as much mass human carnage as fast as possible went to a man named Marvin, who was pictured with Greene (posing just like her Dear Leader with the dumb thumbs up) wearing a “Don’t blame me, I voted for Trump” T-shirt and red, “keep America great” hat while holding the firearm.

Every tweet from Greene can test even the most cautious of Twitter users because something about her really makes you want to bust out all of the worst swear words, and no one should have to go to Twitter jail over that [writer’s disclosure: Greene was forced to unblock me on Twitter along with anyone she had blocked when Meidas Touch sued her]. Twitter still managed to let Greene know just how disgusted they were with how much she enjoys being terrible.
So you see it fit as America see 280 mass shootings, to give another gun away to a mouth breather. pic.twitter.com/L3IfQhCxEp

Meanwhile, because she’s not smart and never does her homework, Greene has invested in companies that back the Black Lives Matter movement she denounced as a “terrorist threat.” Greene introduced legislation to award Congressional Gold Medals to police officers who served on duty during nationwide “Back the Blue” protests last year over police brutality, just weeks before scooping up $15,000 in stock from Walmart, whose president and CEO pledged support for the Black Lives Matter movement’s goals.
Greene, whose net worth is estimated to be between $5 and $8 million, also purchased up to $30,000 in Nestle SA shares on May 18 or 19 and $15,000 in shares from Advanced Micro Devices, BHP Group, Seagate Technology Holdings, Southern Co. and Vulcan Materials.
She turned around and went on another show where she called BLM domestic terrorist. MT Greene is a vile racist. pic.twitter.com/1ZxKzPZd1s

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) have said they plan to introduce bills banning stock trading by lawmakers.
