Today's GOP has made it clear that they have no interest in passing any legislation that may improve the lives of the people who voted for them. Instead, they are focused on culture war issues and turning back improvements in the lives of people who are different.
The LGBTQ community has made major strides over the last two decades. And MAGA world is laser-focused on reversing that progress. During a Monday podcast appearance, Marjorie Taylor Greene declared that the Gay Pride flag is a sign of aggression.
She told Charlie Kirk:
"I just drove up today here at the Gaylord [hotel] and I saw three flags. And one of the flags, which is just as big as the other ones — the United States flag, the Texas flag — was the rainbow flag. Shame on them! Shame on them for hanging that flag out there. Because it shouldn’t be about what people do sexually that causes us to hang a flag somewhere. The only flags that should be hung are the United States flag — and it’s big and beautiful in the back of this room — and a state flag. So, shame on the Gaylord!"
Green later continued, "Every single American has equal rights. The equal right to vote, the equal right to buy a home, to have a job if they qualify for job qualifications, get an education, and so much more in America. But that flag that you’re showing there, that the White House and Joe Biden prominently displays as more important that the United States American flag, has become a symbol of aggression."
