Kevin McCarthy Just Tried To Blame Nancy Pelosi For Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Holocaust Remarks…. because he’s not feckless, but he’s still a blockhead.
Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling. The Holocaust is the greatest atrocity committed in history. The fact that this needs to be stated today is deeply troubling.
At a time when the Jewish people face increased violence and threats, anti-Semitism is on the rise in the Democrat Party and is completely ignored by Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Americans must stand together to defeat anti-Semitism and any attempt to diminish the history of the Holocaust.
Let me be clear: the House Republican Conference condemns this language.
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is tripling down on her claim that mask mandates and safety measures against the coronavirus are comparable to the Holocaust. As a result, she has found herself at the center of bipartisan criticism, including less than generous words from conservative thought leader Ben Shapiro.
Greene has been a subjectof outrage for days as she stands by her decision to compare Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to the Nazis because of her mask rules for the House of Representatives. On Tuesday, Greene got on Twitter with a few thoughts about the news that the Food City supermarket chain is going to drop their mask requirements for fully vaccinated customers, and fully vaccinated employees will have a symbol designating as much on their name tags.
“Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi’s forced Jewish people to wear a gold star,” she wrote. “Vaccine passports & mask mandates create discrimination against unvaxxed people who trust their immune systems to a virus that is 99% survivable.”

Greene’s latest exploit involves comparing the House’s coronavirus-related mask requirement to how the Nazis treated German Jews around the time of the Holocaust.In a recent TV appearance, she said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) continuing to require masks because many House Republicans haven’t said they are vaccinated relegates members to being “second-class citizens” akin to German Jews.“You know, we can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens — so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany,” Green said. “And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about.”
MTG says Speaker Pelosi wanting Members of Congress to get vaccinated and if not to wear masks is “exactly the type of abuse” as murdering Jews in gas chambers during the Holocaust and David Brody nods along. No follow up. pic.twitter.com/inXfD8UBiG

When you’ve lost Ben Shapiro…
I didn’t say anything about your words. Stop invoking the Holocaust. Stop. It’s hurtful. https://t.co/6Mtx4PfkH0
