PUSHBACK: Cheney & Kinzinger OUTRAGED by Marjorie Taylor Greene’s secession plea

PUSHBACK: Cheney & Kinzinger OUTRAGED by Marjorie Taylor Greene's secession plea

After right-wing extremist harpy Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) spent her morning penning a Twitter post that was interpreted by many as a gauntlet thrown down — the initial move in the civil war she apparently desires between GOP-controlled “red states” and Democrat-controlled “blue states” —  two of the less batshit crazy members of the Republican Party expressed their revulsion at the delusional woman who treats the U.S. Constitution — which she vowed to protect and defend — like her personal toilet paper.

Former Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) — the daughter of a former Republican Vice-President and as close as one can get to American royalty in establishment GOP circles — felt the need to provide some remedial civics education to the Q-addled Georgia representative.

Cheney, who was essentially forced out of office for having the temerity to defend said Constitution against the seditious and authoritarian forces of Donald Trump and his assemblage of low-life liars, wisely structures her tweet with very simple and explainable logic for her slow-on-the-uptake audience of one.

Unfortunately, Cheney forgot to include the next logical step in her progression which would be:

No member of Congress should advocate seccession, Marjorie.

Therefore, Marjorie should not be a member of Congress.

In fact, there is an entire section of a Constitutional amendment addressing this very issue which was passed at the conclusion of the last time some unrepentant racists tried to destroy the fabric of our national union.

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.” — Section Three, 14th Amendment

Given the current control of the House of Representatives by the Republican Party, it’s unlikely that the provisions of that amendment will be enforced against Greene anytime soon.

Former Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) — a former GOP lawmaker — one who decided not to seek re-election to the current Congress after his decision to vote FOR the impeachment of Donald Trump made him a pariah in his own caucus and the only other Republican besides Cheney to sit on the House Select Committee on January 6th — also took to Twitter to condemn Greene’s literally divisive and polarizing sentiments.

Kinzinger rightly calls out Greene as the inheritor of the Confederate mantle, which most intelligent people would see as a sizeable burden of shame and defeat.

The fact that Kinzinger needs to point out to the seditious congresswoman that the slavers LOST the last Civil War puts Greene in the same “lost cause” category as the Japanese soldiers who refused to believe that the conflict was over at the end of World War II and hid in the jungles of the South Pacific rather than surrender.

Now, if only Marjorie Taylor Greene would disappear into the jungle for a few decades, wouldn’t life be measurably better for the majority of Americans?

If you believe that anyone who espouses what MTG just did this morning should be expelled from Congress as the 14th Amendment specifies, take to the phones and call your congressperson now!

Tell them Liz Cheney and Adam Kisinger sent you.
