Dem Rep. Says Capitol Police Must Address Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ‘Dangerous Threats’
MARJORIE TAYLOR-GREENE to Sebastian Gorka:
“Ultimately the truth is it’s our Second Amendment rights, our right to bear arms, that protects Americans and give us the ability to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government.
“And I hate to use this language but Democrats, they’re exactly–they’re doing exactly what our Founders talked about when they gave us the precious rights that we have.
“No one wants violence and I say all the time I am not a violent person. I hope to never see a civil war in this country and that’s why you hear me toss around ‘national divorce.’

“The federal government has grown so big and the Democrats are willing to use the power of the federal government, that it really violates people’s rights. It’s a shame, we shouldn’t think that way.
I don’t think that way. Who is “we”?
“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. But we always have to make sure we are defending our Second Amendment rights and make sure our states’ rights are protected.”
This is where she is talking terrorism. Asymmetrical warfare, indeed it’s a call for terrorism, not war. The United States government could beat the MAGAs without firing a shot. Shut the phones down, internet down, block interstates all over into deeply held “red territories in this “war.” She isn’t talking war, she’s talking terrorism. Much more below:
If suggesting “Second Amendment Rights Should Be Used Against Democrats” doesn’t immediately compel @GOPLeader to take disciplinary action, I suggest Congress take action against both of them. This madness must be addressed or violence will ensue. https://t.co/vZUcGtNXlZ

And that’s why someone sane called the police:
Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI) called on Capitol Police Wednesday to respond to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) latest controversial comments suggesting “Second Amendment rights” could be necessary to combat Democrats and their policies.
Stevens, who represents Michigan’s 11th district, responded on Twitter, writing, “I am concerned about the mental health of my colleague from Georgia and would like @CapitolPolice to address her dangerous threats in my workplace.”
I am concerned about the mental health of my colleague from Georgia and would like @CapitolPolice to address her dangerous threats in my workplace.
Just as we would in any school or job site, we cannot let calls for gun violence go unchecked. https://t.co/ho11NObjz6

And, of course, Marj responds:
"Marjorie Taylor Greene Praises ‘Second Amendment Rights’ As Means of Defense." Every time a GOP official talks Second Amendment rights in this context please understand it's meant as a threat with the goal being to intimidate us into silence. We will not be silenced by them!
