Dems About to Deliver ‘Ultimatum’ That Will Backfire in Their Divisive Faces

Newly elected Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has been subject of massive, coordinated attacks on her character over the past few weeks. Democrats have now issued an ultimatum: remove her from all committees or else they will take it to the floor, censuring or even expelling her. Isn’t it interesting that all of this started around the time Rep. Greene began calling for Joe Biden’s impeachment?

Rep. Greene’s controversial opinions on the Parkland shooting, activist David Hogg, hyperbolic statements about Nancy Pelosi (mirrored by much more “inciting” speech by Democrats) have been public knowledge since her campaign for Congress began in earnest almost almost a year ago.

So why are the Democrats suddenly so bothered by her that they need to “render powerless the poisonous nature of this member,” as Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz told reporters Monday? Its simple: she’s a threat. By the way: Where’s Hunter?

The Hit Job Cometh with an Ultimatum, So Much for ‘Unity’

Taylor Greene has made the cardinal mistake in Nancy Pelosi’s house of “taking a shot a the king”, as the saying goes “You come at the king, you best not miss”. Furthermore, with only “weak republicans” as she called them surrounding her she is in serious political jeopardy.

Politico reported,

“House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer delivered an ultimatum to McCarthy on Monday: Either Republicans move on their own to strip Greene (R-Ga.) of her committee assignments within 72 hours, or Democrats will bring the issue to the House floor.”

As one would expect, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has already cast his lot with the Democrats suggesting that Greene is “not living in reality” and warned that “Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country,” Greene’s response was swift and public.

Wasserman Shultz who has been relatively quiet since her days at the forefront of the DNC has been selected as the instrument for the hit job on Greene. The California Representative introduced a resolution at a Pro forma session of the House. According to ABC “If Republicans won’t police their own, the House must step in,” Wasserman Schultz said.

“This is an action that needs to be taken by Kevin McCarthy. If it is not taken by Kevin McCarthy, then the House needs to act because it’s ultimately the House of Representatives that grants and approves our committee assignments and so we collectively as a body, I hope in a bipartisan way, need to get action to severely limit the impact that Marjorie Taylor Greene can have, because we can’t let her spend one more minute causing pain,” Wasserman Schultz said.

“Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene must be held accountable for her reprehensible statements, and I am discussing with members the best course of action to do so,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said in a statement to ABC News.

Politico continued,

“Greene has shown zero contrition for her past actions, tweeting over the weekend that she will “never apologize.” She also took a jab at Hoyer on Twitter Monday and revealed plans to travel to Florida “soon” to meet with former President Donald Trump, who she said supports her “100 percent.” Even more importantly, she’s warning the Democrats that this, like the “nuclear option” before it can only backfire once “America-First Republicans” retake the House. Who has the stronger ultimatum?

Indeed Greene has shown no apology or contrition for her views. Freedom of speech is absolute, Rep. Greene has every right to have controversial opinions. She also has the right to freely express those opinions whether or not the Democratic party agrees with or approves of them. Marjorie Taylor Greene was elected by her constituents based in part upon those opinions. She has made no effort to obfuscate her views of David Hogg, the Parkland shooting or Nancy Pelosi for that matter. Agree or not, she has the right, and all Americans, especially in our Congress are Constitutionally obligated to defend free speech to the utmost, even when they disagree or find it reprehensible.
