Marjorie Taylor Greene has spent the entirety of her political career making a spectacle of herself. And in doing so, she often throws out wild accusations and makes extreme comparisons.The Georgia congresswoman, though, thinks that conservatives are the only ones who should be able to use charged political language. During a Wednesday night appearance on Newsmax, Greene whined about being compared to Nazis.
The controversial conservative was on the channel to discuss Donald Trump’s frivolous lawsuit against Facebook and Twitter. She told host Greg Kelly that the sites are engaging in, “illegal, shameful censorship of the American people.”
“For the past four to five years, we’ve heard the media slander us as Nazis, fascists, deplorables, neanderthals, and all kinds of nasty names, and that’s how they treat the president that we have grown to absolutely love and seriously miss him. But here’s the deal. Conservatives on Twitter and on Facebook, not only are we banned or suspended or completely kicked off and never allowed back on for speaking our political beliefs and speaking our minds, but we are treated as if we’re second class citizens for holding these opinions.”

The Georgia congresswoman, of course, isn’t shy about comparing her political opponents to Nazis. She said back in May, “We can look back in a time in history where 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..”
