Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Of The Republican Party Has Been Chastised For Making A Repugnant New Claim About COVID-19.


On Monday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's latest comments about COVID-19 drew a strong backlash.

In a threaded "message from America to the swamp" that she posted on Twitter, the Georgia Republican declared that she "doesn't care" about the more transmissible delta variant of the coronavirus that is now spreading across the United States, "or any other variant."

“All voters are sick of Covid,” declared the QAnon-supporting legislator.

6. No one cares about the Delta Variant or any other variant. They are over covid and no amount of fear-based screaming from the media will ever force Americans to shut down again. Forced masks and vaccines will cause Dems to lose big. All voters are over covid. — Marjorie Taylor Greene (@mtgreenee) July 6, 2021

Greene also said Fox News was part of the "fake news media" and told people who "don't like America or our flag" to "get the hell out of our GREAT country & go live in some other shithole Socialist or Communist country" elsewhere in the thread.

Greene has previously compared House mask mandates to the Holocaust and praised people who refuse to receive the coronavirus vaccine, which scientists around the world have determined is a safe way to avert the coronavirus pandemic.

Many found her most recent claims to be outrageous:

Dear Marjorie: I'm a voter, and I'm not over COVID. Speak for yourself, please.COVID is not over the GOP, either. I guess you haven't noticed the Delta spikes in low-vaccinated red states, but why should you care about your constituents now... _()_/ https://t.co/LH9XXZgis2

This is obvious and dangerous misinformation, and everyone should report it. @twitter should be held to a higher standard. — mookieb (@mookieb17) July 6, 2021

Voters may be tired of Covid, but Covid is not. Get smart! — Suzielle (@suezq400) July 6, 2021

Please don't speak for me as a voter. It's insane that you can say "I'm just over that deadly pandemic." I'm just over 9/11, and I'm going back to carrying shampoo onto planes. I'm also over speed limits, and I'll be passing you at 100 mph. — jeff caughie (@caughie_jeff) July 6, 2021

The delta variant is twice as contagious and significantly harsher than the wild type. https://t.co/CLvWTF8l2X — Stephen Daugherty (@SteveRDaugh) July 6, 2021

Your contempt for the people who have lost their lives and loved ones as a result of the ignorance about covid that you continue to promote is disgusting and does not surprise me https://t.co/9gtixWeoyT — lemon_squares (@vintageautumnal) July 6, 2021

@jackjack is there anything that can be done about this? Do you agree that this is dangerous rhetoric? Spreading lies and falsehoods about a pandemic that is still in action.? — Natalie Hamill Proud Canadian! (@nataliehamill35) July 6, 2021

“No one cares about the Delta Variant or any other variant.” — Doug (@groundyourstand) July 6, 2021

The Delta variant is very real, and saying otherwise is dangerous and irresponsible. It's no coincidence that the vast majority of cases are currently in Red states. — Nogbad the Bad (@Bad_Nogbad_Bad) July 6, 2021

But covids aren't finished with us yet. — The Jenster (@jjackso47500133) July 6, 2021
