Kinzinger calls for Marjorie Taylor Greene to be removed from the house conference
MP Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) Said Tuesday that MP Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Was removed from the House of Representatives’ Conference of Republicans for comments comparing coronavirus-related restrictions with anti-Jewish laws in Nazi Germany should be.
“You can’t stop anyone from calling themselves Republicans or declaring themselves Republicans,” Kinzinger said, according to The Hill.
“But what we can do as a party is take a stand and say,” You are not part of our conference. “I think we should do that.
“I think we should kick them out of the conference, prevent them from coming to conference sessions and benefiting from conference materials, and I’m not sure that will happen, but it will just keep going,” he added. “It’s just nerve-wracking.”
Greene was outraged last week after criticizing house rules that require members to wear masks in the Chamber except when speaking during the debate.
“You know, we can look back at a time in history when people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second class citizens, so much so that they were put on trains and in Nazi gas chambers were brought to Germany, ”Greene told David Brody of Christian Broadcasting Network. “And that’s exactly the kind of abuse [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi talks about it. “
Early Tuesday, Greene tweeted an article via a grocery store in Tennessee that adds a “vaccination logo” to employee name tags.
“Vaccinated employees receive a vaccination logo just like the Nazis [sic] forced the Jewish people to wear a gold star, ”she wrote. Vaccination certificates and mask mandates discriminate against unaffected people who entrust their immune system with a virus that is 99 percent viable. “
Greene’s comments were shared by Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Steve Scalise, R-La., And Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Senate Minority Chair, and Mitch McConnell (R-Ky, Senate Minority Chair) sentenced. ).
In February, the House agreed to give Greene her committee duties over her association with various conspiracy theories – including QAnon and the “9/11 Truther” movement – as well as her previous claims that school shootings may have been false flag operations evade gun control staged by proponents.
The House’s GOP rules require a two-thirds vote to expel a member from the conference, which means 142 votes would be required to remove Greene.
