QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Aggressively Stalks and Shouts Abuse At AOC (Now With Video)
There has been violence in the Capitol before, all too recently. But there has also been violence among members of Congress. There are stains, still, to this day in the marble. The United States is the last country on earth right now that should see itself as above political violence. Perhaps that is why some are so disturbed by Marjorie Taylor-Greene’s highly aggressive confrontation with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the fearless progressive, one of the few in our party right now with no limits on her political career, ever growing as she gains experience and more goodwill.
And maybe that’s what bothers MTG so much, the two women are going in the opposite direction.
The Washington Post reports that MTG went after AOC with such aggression that “it raised security concerns.”
Two Washington Post reporters witnessed Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) exit the House chamber late Wednesday afternoon ahead of Greene (Ga.), who shouted “Hey Alexandria” twice in an effort to get her attention. When Ocasio-Cortez did not stop walking, Greene picked up her pace and began shouting at her and asking why she supports antifa, a loosely knit group of far-left activists, and Black Lives Matter, falsely labeling them “terrorist” groups. Greene also shouted that Ocasio-Cortez was failing to defend her “radical socialist” beliefs by declining to publicly debate the freshman from Georgia.
“You don’t care about the American people,” Greene shouted. “Why do you support terrorists and antifa?”

Just as you would expect, the brilliant up and comer knew exactly how to handle the situation:
Ocasio-Cortez did not stop to answer Greene, only turning around once and throwing her hands in the air in an exasperated motion. The two reporters were not close enough to hear what the New York congresswoman said, and her office declined to discuss her specific response.
No response is the only response. One person is there to do a job and the other person is there to “be” the job. The difference is crystal clear in the deafening silence.
MTG seems to get herself in these situations more often than most. Perhaps there is something in her that causes her to be more aggressive? Just wondering. No hard facts, just some gym members seem different in some ways.
Here is MTG actually stalking AOC like a crazy woman:
Marjorie Taylor Greene is a dangerous stalker. The woman followed David Hogg, I believe under 18 at the time, with a gun screaming at him about her gun rights. Now she is doing it to @AOC. #StalkerMarj pic.twitter.com/3uj7W76KPf

Regardless, a few others commented about the irony:

AOC says of MTG: “I used to work as a bartender. These are the kinds of people that I threw out of bars all the time.”

.@mtgreenee, we already know you are mentally unfit, & this confrontation with @AOC proves it. However, what you are not is tough, in spite of your antics. I have asked over & over for you to meet with me. You have ignored that. Let's meet Marjorie.https://t.co/tdDBSyKAQA

>@AOC to reporters on her encounter with @mtgreenee: "I refuse to allow young women, people of color, people who are standing up for what they believe to see this kind of intimidation attempts by a person who supports white supremacists." pic.twitter.com/ksNZH444cU

One of these women is going to have a remarkable future in American politics and do great things for her country. One cannot even sit on a committee. The one showed the other why nothing about the dynamic would be changing soon. No matter how “hard” Marj fights, she will never fight as effectively as AOC.
