Liz Cheney on Marjorie Taylor-Greene’s Nazi Comments: Evil Lunacy
At other times in American history, being asked to make a sacrifice meant going off to war or donating money to causes. In the time of COVID, Americans are being asked to do much less. Just wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.
Thanks to Donald Trump, though, this has become an intense political issue. All over Conservative media, hosts have ranted and raved about masks. So it is no surprise that Marjorie Taylor-Greene decided to take it a step too far.
During a recent appearance on Real America’s Voice, “You know, we can look back at a time in history when people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about.”
Cheney, whose party has been taken over by figures like Greene, tweeted a video of the comments. “This is evil lunacy,” she wrote.

David Cicilline, a Democratic Rep. who is Jewish, wrote, “The Holocaust: The systematic murder of 6 million Jews. Mask-wearing: A simple act that costs you nothing and saves lives. Marjorie Taylor Greene: A troubled person who is unfit to serve in Congress.”

And the American Jewish Congress tweeted, “You can never compare health-related restrictions with yellow stars, gas chambers & other Nazi atrocities.”
