Marjorie Taylor Greene Denies Making Holocaust Comments
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) denied having compared COVID-19 mask mandates and vaccinations to the Holocaust, despite having done so on multiple occasions on news programs and on Twitter.
“So you do reject the media narrative or accusation that I guess that says you compared wearing a mask to the Holocaust. You say that’s untrue, that’s not at all what you meant by that,” host Gina Loudon of Dr. Gina Primetime asked Greene.
“Oh it’s completely untrue. Anyone can ask Nathan Brody,” Greene replied, referring to the Real America’s Voice host to whom she made the remarks.
“He was interviewing me at the time when I made those statements and I wasn’t even talking about masks per se, it was talking about the mistreatment of being treated like a second-class citizen and I never said the word Holocaust, just the same as I never said the words Jewish space lasers,” Greene said. “But then the media made that one up too.”
She did, though. Read about it here.
“When I made those statements, I wasn’t even talking about masks per se,” Greene continued, repeating the same toxic lines she just denied ever using. “I was talking about the mistreatment of being treated like a second-class citizen. And I never said the word ‘Holocaust.’ It’s just the same as I never said the words ‘Jewish space lasers,’ but then the media made that one up too. So yeah this is another fake news story that the media had to create to cover up the fact that the Jihad Squad is supporting terrorism, that the Democrat Party is the real party of ant-Semitism. They’re the real party of hate, division, and stealing our freedoms. So the media needed cover for the Democrats and the precious women that they love – the Jihad Squad – and so they decided to attack me.”
Greene is playing semantics. She accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of wanting to send unvaccinated people to gas chambers. That Greene did not use the word Holocaust does not change her well-documented words.
This is extreme gaslighting, and Republican voters are buying it.
