Freshman Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has come under fire recently by Democrats who have labeled her as an “extremist” due to her strong belief in QAnon.
Because the mainstream media insists QAnon is directly linked to the extremism we witnessed at the Capitol riots on January 6th, all Democrat House members and 11 Republicans voted to remove Rep. Taylor Greene from her committee assignments in a 230-199 vote.
Despite House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s objection to her removal, three of the Republicans who voted with the Democrats were freshman Republican women, including, Reps. Young Kim, Nicole Malliotakis, and Maria Elvira Salazar.
Rep. Taylor Greene will no longer sit on the Education, Labor, and Budget Committees she was tapped for upon being sworn in to office in early January.
In response to the move, the Congresswoman held a fiery press conference slamming their decision to remove her from the assignments.
“You know what they did?”, she asked the press. “They actually stripped my district of their voice, they stripped my voters of having representation to work for them for the budget.”
“A successful business owner who knows how to make a profit, not a loss. That’s what my district voted for me for,” Rep. Taylor Greene said.
Because of her belief QAnon, the Congresswoman makes a good point that she will now be restricted from helping the country in the best ways she knows how.
Instead of being allowed the opportunity to apply her skills as a successful business owner who knows how to balance a budget, experience with the work force, and involvement in her children’s schools, Rep. Taylor Greene will have no say in any of those committees where she could best help.
Regardless of whether we agree with her personal or political beliefs, the fact is she is an elected member of Congress who has a commitment to her constituents to follow through on representing their interests in the budget, education, and labor.
Congress has now denied her from being able to do so.
The Congresswoman’s beliefs are admittedly overwhelming for conservatives like me who don’t believe in the “Q” community, however I can respect her right to believe what she wants and speak as she pleases so long as it remains within the confines of the law.
Unlike Democrats, I disagree that we should have gone so far as to remove Rep. Taylor Greene from her committee assignments because she believes in something I don’t.
