Conservative writer Kevin Williamson pulls no punches in a new essay for the National Review entitled simply, “Marjorie Taylor Greene Should Go,” in which he refers to her as a “ghastly cretin” and begs the voters of her state to use their power at the polls to make her one term in Congress her only term.
While enumerating her many flaws using the elevated language we’ve come to expect from Williamson–referring to January 6th here as an attempted coup d’état would confuse Madge if she bothered to read–he also points out that no one in Congress has been arrested as of yet under the federal insurrection statute and turns instead to the question of legality when it comes to the case brought against her in Georgia to remove her from the ballot.
What I appreciate the most about Williamson’s discourse is that it’s not the mean-spirited, barely concealed glee at being terrible for the sake of being terrible as we often see from people from the right who pipe up about politics. I understand Williamson’s take–you can see why people in Georgia wouldn’t want her name on the ballots that are unfortunately already printed and ready to go out for next month’s primary–but he also makes the case that the people of her district are the ones who should be carrying the burden. They’re responsible for unleashing this hellbeast upon us, and they should be the ones to remove her now too.
Conservative Kevin Williamson:
"Marjorie Taylor Greene, the ghastly cretin who inexplicably has been foisted upon this besieged republic by the people of … Georgia, is the sort of self-serving malicious dunce who should be kept as far away from political power as possible."

We who suffered through her perjury with the occasional actual testimony can only hope the voters of Georgia’s 14th take heed and save us all.
I guess #MarjorieTaylorGreene’s lawyer hasn’t seen this video
