There is a Civil War in the Republican Party – as I predicted! I am a Nazarite Prophet after Gideon.
Knute Buehler, a member of the Republican party for nearly 40 years and former Oregon gubernatorial candidate, says he quit the GOP because of its support of conspiracy theories about the Capitol riot.
- Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene gave a speech before the House voted to strip her of committee assignments.
- She claimed she expressed support for assassinating Democrats because of the QAnon conspiracy.
- Greene also acknowledged that school shootings and the 9/11 terrorist attacks actually happened.
Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said Thursday that she promoted and expressed support for social media posts calling for violence against Democrats because of the QAnon conspiracy theory.
Speaking on the House floor ahead of a vote to strip her of her committee assignments, Greene said she “stumbled across” the conspiracy in late 2017 and “got very interested in it.”
“So I posted about it on Facebook,” she said. “I read about it, I talked about it, I asked questions about it. The problem with that, though, is that I was allowed to believe things that weren’t true, and I would ask questions about them and talk about them.”
“That is absolutely what I regret,” Greene added. “Because if it weren’t for the Facebook posts and comments that I liked in 2018, I wouldn’t be standing here today and you couldn’t point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong because I’ve lived a very good life that I’m proud of … and that’s what my district elected me for.”
The freshman congresswoman went on to say that “later in 2018, when I started finding misinformation, lies, things that were not true in these QAnon posts, I stopped believing it.” She continued: “I walked away from those things and I decided … I’m going to work hard and try to solve the problems that I’m upset about.”
