Conspiracy nut-Job Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to keynote Republican fundraiser in Tennessee

by Natalie Allison, The Tennessean -   The Wilson County Republican Party has selected a keynote speaker for this year's annual Trump Day Dinner: U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a controversial member of Congress stripped this year of her House committee assignments. 

Greene, a North Georgia Republican whose district borders the Chattanooga area, will speak at the county party's fundraising dinner Oct. 7, Wilson County GOP chairman Brad Lytle confirmed. 

"We just contacted her office and told her we're interested," Lytle said Thursday. "We thought she best represented the cancel culture for conservatives since she's been effectively canceled by the House and Nancy Pelosi." 

Greene has stirred controversy on Capitol Hill over her tolerance of conspiracy theories, including questioning whether the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened; stalking and taunting a teen survivor of a deadly high school shooting in Florida; and suggesting that space lasers were causing fatal wildfires in California.

Rod's Comment: I am disgusted with the Wilson County Republican Party and disappointed in many other Republicans who do not denounce radicals and crazies like Green.  


by Rod Williams - This is unbelievable.  If I were a Republican in Wilson County, I would not be attending this event.  I would not contribute to the local party or attend any functions of the party.  The leadership of the party would have successfully driven me out.  I might protest the appearance of Green outside the venue.

She is a nut-job!  She is a Q-anon supporter.  She was a regular contributor to a conspiracy web site. She has supported almost every right-wing conspiracy theory circulating. She touts the Pizzagate theory, the Clinton Kill-list, mass shootings as a false flag theory, and 9-11 as an inside job theory.  She has advocated executing Democrat politicians.  She has equated the Democrat Party with Nazies. She continues to claim Trump won the election in a landslide and that the election was stolen.  Her Covid-19 theory is that Dr. Fauci is criminally liable for helping create the virus as a bio-weapon.

It is hard to think of a person more committed to crazy conspiracy theories than Marjorie Taylor Green.  I think Congress was right to deny her any committee assignments.  I think the Republican Party should have denied her the right to caucus as a Republican. She should be condemned and shunned; not honored. 

Is this what has happened to the Republican Party, that the honored guest speaker at an annual Republican banquet is someone like this?  Also, I am dismayed that what used to be called Lincoln Day Dinners and then Reagan Day Dinners are now called "Trump Day Dinners."  Even if the speaker was someone I respected and admired, I would not attend a "Trump Day Dinner."  Trump should be disgraced; not honored.  I wonder how many other annual Republican banquets are now called "Trump Day Dinners."  I hope not many.

I believe that the policies of the Democrat party will destroy our country.  Massive deficit spending is the biggest threat to our future.  That and policies such as the Green New Deal, Medicaid for all, open borders, imposed "equity" policies, defund the police, and others will cause a decline in America's standard of living and ability to be a world leader.  We will see greater unemployment as a permanent feature of our economy, inflation, less productivity, and a decline in upward mobility.  A continuation of cancel culture and an emphasis and race-based "equity" will lead to less freedom. With America in decline, there will be no other country able to step up to the plate and lead the world and democratic countries will decline and have to kowtow to China.  China, Russia, and Islamism will ascend as the US declines. I do not see the US having an apocalyptic event, but a steady decline in the standard of living, productivity, economic vitality, and the ability to lead the world.  In a few more years we may more closely resemble Portugal or Greece or some Eastern European country than the country we currently know.

So, I cannot become a Democrat and believe the Democrat Party must be defeated.  However, I do not want to be part of a party that hosts Marjorie Taylor Green as an honored speaker. I must feel the same as one felt on the eve of the Spanish Civil War.  Should one support the Communist-supported Republic or the Nazi-supported Fascist, or stay on the sidelines and let others decide the fate of one's country?

I still believe the Republican Party will come to its senses and again become the party of responsible conservatism.  If it does not, however, I cannot feel at home in a Donald Trump- Marjorie Taylor Green Party.
