Marjorie Taylor Greene Assures That Democrats Will Pay the Price for Undemocratic Attack on Committee Assignments
Marjorie Taylor Greene assured that Democrats would be held accountable for their unhanded move to strip her of her committee assignments, speaking before the Thursday vote in a statement provided to Big League Politics.
Greene is pledging that a future Republican majority in the House of Representatives will use the same tactic in turn upon securing power.
“If Democrats remove me from my committees, I can assure them that the precedent they are setting will be used extensively against members on their side once we regain the majority after the 2022 elections.
And we will regain the majority, make no mistake about that.”
To strip a freshman member of Congress of her own committee assignments for remarks made well before being elected to office is unprecedented. As Republican voters clamor for leaders who will actually fight the globalist agenda of the Left and the Biden administration, leading Republicans have instead insisted on condemning Greene at the beckoning of the Left. The hysteria against the Georgia Republican is purely based on old Facebook comments from years ago, with Greene since clarifying that she doesn’t even support the ‘Q’ conspiracy theory.
Democratic members of Congress such as Adam Schiff, Rashida Tlaib, and Maxine Waters could face a range of sanctions ranging from the loss of their committee assignments to criminal prosecution for their actions in coming years. Republican leaders opted to give the controversial Democrats a pass previously, a standard that critics of extremism in the far-left party are now questioning in light of the Democrats’ “No Mercy” approach to democracy.
The Democratic Party has been keen to erode civil liberties and standards of due process for purposes of political persecution throughout the Trump era, blissfully assuming that they themselves won’t be held accountable for their actions and that they’re guaranteed to wield power indefinitely. Such an assumption is tenuous at best.
Ultimately, ‘Cancel Culture’ will continue to be an effective weapon in the arsenal of the Left until the Right finds the will to actually use it against its opponents.
