Ocasio-Cortez Says That the QAnon Members Now Control the GOP Caucus
In June of in 2015, Facebook videos emerged of Marjorie Taylor Greene making racist remarks. A representative for Kevin McCarthy stated, “these comments are appalling, and Leader McCarthy has no tolerance for them.” Minority Whip Steve Scalise took it an action even more, tossing his assistance behind Greene’s main challenger.
Greene had the ability to win that main, however, and she quickly won election into your home of Representatives. On Wednesday, more viral videos of the Georgia congresswoman emerged.
However rather of penalizing Greene, she was put on the Home Education and Labor Committee. This rejection to condemn Greene, states Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, reveals that the QAnon wing is now managing the Republican caucus.
The New york city congresswoman informed MSNBC’s Chris Hayes:
“It increasingly seems, unfortunately, that in the House Republican caucus, Kevin McCarthy answers to these QAnon members of congress, not the other way around. And that is something that frankly needs to be said — he said he was going to pull representative Marjorie Taylor Greene aside after, you know, her comments to Parkland activists and comments saying that Muslim Americans should not fully and freely serve in the House, that they must be forced to swear on a Bible, et cetera.”
Ocasio Cortez concluded, “It means that that silence is acceptance, and they want it because they know that it is a core animating political energy for them. And this is extremely dangerous — an extremely dangerous threshold we have crossed because we are now away from acting out of fidelity to their president that they had in the Oval Office, and now we are talking about fidelity to white supremacist organizations as a political tool.”
