Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has distinguished herself as the Fox News approved QAnon mouthpiece for congressional Republicans. Her manic raving is frequently so far over the edge that it’s impossible to imagine anyone could take her seriously. And yet she is sitting member of Congress with all of the rights and privileges that go along with that position.

This week Greene may have outdone herself during an interview by Real America’s Voice host, David Brody, on the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). The subject was the mandate in the House of Representatives to wear face masks, a policy that is expected to remain in place per CDC guidelines, or until all members are vaccinated. Which is a problem because some Republicans are stubbornly and ignorantly refusing to get the shot. When Brody asked Greene about the policy it led to this chilling exchange:

Brody: This is Nancy Pelosi saying – literally talking about this idea of segregating – segregation – like literally putting unvaccinated House members in a different area.
Pelosi Video: We have to wait for them to be vaccinated. Because they are selfishly an endangerment to other people, including staff people here […]
Greene: This woman is mentally ill. You know we can look back at 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. And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about. […] This is a woman that is hyper-focused on her own power and control.

Brody was visibly disturbed at the notion that, in order to ensure the health and safety of everyone, unvaccinated members would be socially distanced from others. But Green’s reply was what truly took this discussion over the top. Setting aside her infantile insult about Pelosi’s mental health, Greene’s analogy could not have been more nauseating.

Could Greene actually believe that there is any similarity between a requirement to wear a face mask that every health expert agrees will saves lives, and the genocidal murder of millions of Jews by Nazis in Germany? Well, actually, she does believe that. When asked later about her comment comparing mask mandates to the Holocaust she replied, “I stand by all of my statements. I said nothing wrong.”

So there you have it. Given the opportunity to correct or clarify her disgusting and deranged comparison, Greene doubled down. Now we know exactly where she stands on this issue. And as long she remains a member of the Republican caucus in the House, every one of her GOP colleagues shares responsibility for this position. They have the power to expel her, and if they choose not to, then they own her and her noxious ideas.
