It was not that long ago that fringe groups with out there ideas were just that. They lived in the corners of the internet that most of us didn’t even know about or consider looking at. Then you know who was elected.
Though he is out of office (Thank G-d), his influence still persists and will do so for a long time. The most obvious sign of his still lingering sway is Marjorie Taylor Greene. Randy Rainbow released his latest video today with her as the subject.
The song Rainbow is using is Evergreen from the 1976 adaptation of A Star is Born. If there was a way to insert his picture next the word “genius” in the dictionary, I would happily add it. Taylor Greene is not just your average Republican, her views are dangerous. It says something when Karl Rove, one of the big wigs of the party, called out his colleagues to do the right thing.
The fact is that this woman has to go. If she doesn’t, it will tell me everything about the Republican party that I will ever need to know.
The idea of becoming a lawmaker to represent and speak for the voters in your area is a noble one. But not everyone who is elected is worthy of the job they have been hired to do by their constituents.
Minority leader Kevin McCarthy has stated that he will talk to Representative Taylor Greene about her statements. It will be nothing more than a slap on the wrist. She will likely keep her seat on the education committee and be allowed to continue to spew the poisonous lies that are coming out of her mouth.
A slap on the wrist and is the last thing this woman needs. She is entitled to her opinions, as we all are. However, there is a distinct line between one’s cultural/political perspective and making the type of statements she is making. She must be expelled from Congress if we are move on from the chaos and darkness of the last four years.
