Marjorie Taylor Greene Claims White Nationalist Caucus Is A Lie — But There Are Receipts

Marjorie Taylor Greene will not be launching a caucus to advance “uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions” after all — and now she insists she never planned to do so.

Greene tweeted Tuesday to accuse ‘the media’ of smearing her with a false story, after reports that she planned to start an America First Caucus. She asserted that the story was made up to divide Republicans, and spread to attack Donald Trump.

However, what Greene did not address is that her own spokesperson was a initial source of the story, and the 7-page policy platform that leaked, full of details including calling for America to be “prepared militarily” to deal with China, declaring the pandemic response an ‘overreaction,’ calling for an end to foreign aid, and demanding that assimilation be a major part of immigration. Punchbowl News published a copy of the document here.

According to Forbes, Greene’s spokesperson, one Nick Dyer, has asserted that the Congresswoman didn’t know about the proposal and that it came from an outside group — but also suggested that the caucus had been in planning stages, before the leak prompted a strong response to the white nationalist language coded into the document.

Meanwhile, Raw Story reports that other Republicans are now distancing themselves from the proposal, reversing their initial statements. This includes Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) who previously indicated interest, and now says it sounded like a setup from the beginning, and Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) who was listed as a founder of the caucus, but says now that he never had anything to do with it.
