Charlotte, NC — On Thursday, Democrats decided to take unprecedented action by removing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Geene (R-GA) from all her committee positions due to her past statements around conspiracy theory. In specific, Greene used to promote QAnon conspiracy prior to entering Congress. She has made several other questionable statements as well around 9/11 and school shootings.
While I do not support the conspiracy theories, the actions against Greene are wrong. It’s more than the simple act of Democrats essentially vetoing a Republican assignment. It’s the absolute double standard of the Democrats on full display.
Time and again the Democrats ignore ridiculous actions in their own party while trying to hold Republicans accountable. For example, Democrats never took action against Rep. Swalwell (D-CA) after it was discovered he had an affair with a Chinese spy. He is still on the intelligence committee.
Or what about the anti-Semitic comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) or Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). They directly offended one of our staunchest allies with their ridiculous rhetoric.
We can even look more recently at the recent outright lies by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She recently said she feared for her life and was mere moments away from dying in the Capitol amid the breach. Instead, she was sitting cozy in her office, in the Cannon building that was never breached.
You could also talk about Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) who for three years peddled the Trump Russia collusion hoax. Throughout he claimed there was convincing evidence of an impeachable act, but there was never any evidence presented that proved anything.
There are other instances that we could talk about, but it’s frustrating to even relive those events knowing that Democrats refused to do anything to their own. They had no issues taking action against Greene, however.
Time and again the Democrats continue to play politics rather than taking their jobs seriously. I have no issue if you want to remove Greene if it is done in a manner that is consistent.
If the Democrats were serious about this, they would remove AOC, Omar, Tlaib, Schiff, and Swalwell. Instead, they allow each of these members to remain in their roles while placing our national security and international relationships at risk.
This is not any part of an agenda of unity, bipartisanship, or even in the interest of working for Americans. Instead, it’s a power move by power-hungry Democrats that will come back to bite them in the future. Remember, 2022 is not that far away.
