Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene believes what she believes and isn’t afraid to tell people what is on her mind.
During her short time in Congress she’s become known for her no-nonsense, combative style of politics with her colleagues in Congress and the press.
But Rep. Greene’s notoriety apparently hasn’t traveled across the pond, which led to a British journalist to receive a rhetorical beatdown the likes of which hasn’t been seen since 1776.
Rights, restrictions, and red flags
The source of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s recent British battle was the Senate’s latest gun-grabbing bill.
The much proclaimed “compromise” was spearheaded by now exposed RINO Senator John Cornyn (TX) and leftist Senator Chris Murphy (CT).
Among other things, the bill would require juvenile criminal and psychiatric background checks for eighteen to twenty year-olds who buy guns from any federally licensed dealer, increase punishment for gun crimes, increase funding for health and mental health programs, and provide seven hundred and fifty million dollars to bribe states into creating their own unconstitutional red flag laws.
Despite conservative opposition, the bill recently passed the Senate in a 65-33 vote, with all forty eight Democrats and fifteen RINOs supporting the bill.
House Democrats later passed the bill with the support of 14 Republican RINOs, including Rep. Liz Cheney (WY), sending it to Biden’s desk for his signature.
Senator Ted Cruz took to social media to blast the bill by tweeting, “It’s common sense. If we want to keep our kids safe, do not disarm law-abiding citizens. Instead, put criminals in jail and have police officers on campus to protect our kids.”
Sen. Cruz’s sentiments were equally shared by a number of conservatives across the country including those of House Republicans like Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal Battle of Britain
During a recent press conference, Rep. Greene said that it was her “job to defend the Second Amendment,” implying that her Senate colleagues had failed to do their job by supporting the bill.
Greene’s remark prompted a British journalist to pipe up and say “We don’t have guns in the U.K., that is true, but we don’t have mass shootings either. And our children aren’t scared to go to school.”
This surprising response from a “journalist” prompted Rep. Greene to respond by saying, “You have mass stabbings, lady. You have all kinds of murder, and you’ve got laws against that.”
“Nothing like the same rates here,” the belligerent Brit responded.
And that was all the nonsense and disrespect Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene would tolerate from the supposed journalist, which prompted her to respond by saying, “Well, you can go back to your country and worry about your no guns. We like ours here.”
Later, Congresswoman Greene posted a clip of the exchange on social media and wrote, “When British press wants to argue about our God-given American gun rights, my answer is: ‘go back to your own country.’”
Regardless if you like Rep. Greene’s firebrand style of politics or not, you must admire the fact that she would not be disrespected or talked down to by a journalist.
Especially, since that “journalist” was acting more like an activist by trying to angrily debate the Georgia Republican instead of professionally and politely asking a question.
But even more so, as Americans, we should appreciate the passion in which Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene defended our Constitutional rights against this mouthy Brit since that was the reason we seceded from Britain and became our own country to begin with.
