New Jersey progressive champion Lisa McCormick has endorsed a California Congressman’s proposed resolution to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14) from the U.S. House of Representatives.
Congressman Jimmy Gomez (CA-34) introduced a resolution to expel Greene from Congress “in light of numerous reports revealing her repeated endorsements of sedition, domestic terrorism, and political violence.”
“As if it weren’t enough to amplify conspiracy theories that the September 11attacks were an inside job and the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was staged, a string of recent media reports has now confirmed that Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene had previously supported social media posts calling for political violence against the Speaker of the House, members of Congress, and former President Barack Obama,” said Gomez.
On January 26, 2021, a CNN KFile review by Em Steck and Andrew Kaczynski uncovered social media activity and posts by Greene calling for violence against Democrats in elected office.
In one Facebook post from 2018, Greene replied to a supporter who asked how they can “hang” former President Barack Obama, saying the “stage” was being “set” and that it would need to be done “perfectly.”
Greene also liked a comment from 2019 that a “bullet to the head would be quicker” than an election for removing Speaker Nancy Pelosi from office, and messages about executing FBI agents working for the “deep state.”
In September of 2020, Congresswoman Greene posted a meme of her with a gun pointed towards progressive members of Congress.
And in June of 2020, Politico unearthed past clips of Greene espousing racist, Islamophobic and anti-Semitic attitudes, saying in one video that Muslims should be barred from serving in government.
“Such advocacy for extremism and sedition not only demands her immediate expulsion from Congress, but it also merits strong and clear condemnation from all of her Republican colleagues, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell,” said Gomez. “Her very presence in office represents a direct threat against the elected officials and staff who serve our government, and it is with their safety in mind, as well as the security of institutions and public servants across our country, that I call on my House colleagues to support my resolution to immediately remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from this legislative body.”
McCormick is also urging Congress to adopt Rep. Cori Bush’s resolution directing the Committee on Ethics to investigate and report whether members of Congress should face sanction, including removal from the House of Representatives, for attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election, because that act violated their oath of office to uphold the Constitution.
“The whole world witnessed an attempted coup d’état that included a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol building, which resulted in six deaths,” said McCormick. “The members of Congress who incited, supported or collaborated with those terrorists should be expelled because they are traitors to our democratic republic.”
“The people who claimed the election results are illegitimate are the same ones who refused to consider measures to improve ballot integrity and voters rights,” said McCormick. “There is no factual basis for denying President Joe Biden’s overwhelming victory and to smear our system of democracy is an urgent threat to the Constitution, making those liars both seditionists and traitors.”
McCormick has made several comments about the politician, who she’s dubbed a ‘crackpot congresswoman’ from Georgia.
