AOC vs MTG

From the Washington Post:

Rep. Greene aggressively confronts Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, causing New York congresswoman to raise security concerns

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene aggressively confronted Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday and falsely accused her of supporting “terrorists,” leading the New York congresswoman’s office to call on leadership to ensure that Congress remains “a safe, civil place for all Members and staff.”
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?”
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.
“Representative Greene tried to begin an argument with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and when Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tried to walk away, Congresswoman Greene began screaming and called Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer,” Ocasio-Cortez spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said in a statement. “We hope leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff — especially as many offices are discussing reopening. One Member has already been forced to relocate her office due to Congresswoman Greene’s attacks.”

She doesn’t have anything to do all day (maybe fundraising calls) so she just sits and stews in her office.

5. We shouldn't call her MTG

It gives her the recognition she wants.

I am sure she was filming this for a promo. Her intended audience won't understand the irony of her supporting actual terrorists that attacked the us capitol.

She is a trash bully trying to show off to other trash bullies.

She wants attention, press coverage, and red meat for the Q-maga crowd.

To debate this raving lunatic is to legitimize her.

Reeks of someone fishing for content to post online and feed her fan club.

But then, she reeks the rest of the time, too. That happens when you exist in a sealed room of bean-eaters, it infuses your very being.

Shame on The Post for propagating a right wing talking point.

11. Agree

I agree with another post on here...i don't think we should call Greene, MTG. I think it probably makes her think she's as cool as AOC!

And Greene thinks AOC supports terrorists??!! That's a hoot! Who does Greene think the insurrectionists (who she supports) from January 6th are??! They are the terrorists!!!

16. I wish that

What would happen is that the psycho peach walks out one day and tries that again. Except that this time, the rest of the Squad is waiting. They surround the trailer trash Congressperson and just start calmly hammering at her with facts. No matter what she says, one or more of the Squad should reply with facts and reality. I guarantee that the psycho peach would probably freak out and finally give a solid reason to remove her idiotic and crazy ass from Congress. That is what needs to happen. (Well, that and every single Dem in office needs to just start laughing whenever she gets the floor or holds a presser outside of the chambers. Pointing and laughing.)



This is what needs to happen every time she opens her stupid mouth!

17. AOC recently met with Amash's students to have rational discussion

She was well received and commented on how exchanging ideas is valuable.
MTG has no intention of having a rational discussion.

37. Agreed.

Right wingers in general and people like Greene, Shapiro, etc.. in particular want to debate because to them it is performative rather than informative. They are not looking to exchange or even argue about ideas. Their goal is to create soundbites of performance to raise their profile. They come to debates in bad faith, not prepared to win, but prepared to create the spectacle. I would even give them the credit of understanding that no minds will be changed by the information. They seek to connect with people on an emotional level and to get their disgusting views out to the mainstream.

AOC is better off not dignifying Greene with any kind of response or debate. Greene, I am sure, will call her a chicken and such, but then AOC's people might then respond, that it isn't because they are afraid to engage with the opposition (As seen with the Jason Amash situation) it is that Greene does not have ANY ideas worth engaging with.
