Marjorie Taylor Greene will attend Donald Trump’s appetence speech Thursday night on the South Lawn, the Georgia Republican candidate for the U.S. House revealed Tuesday.
‘I’m honored and thrilled to be invited to attend President Trump’s acceptance speech Thursday evening at the White House,’ Greene tweeted with an image of the invitation. ‘I’m also equally excited to vote for him again November 3rd, and I’m working hard all over Georgia to help him win.’
The candidate receiving an invitation is a big sign of the president’s support as it’s unlikely his acceptance speech at the White House will have a large crowd.
‘Congratulations to future Republican Star Marjorie Taylor Greene on a big Congressional primary win in Georgia against a very tough and smart opponent,’ Trump tweeted after Greene defeated Republican John Cowan in the primary runoff earlier this month. ‘Marjorie is strong on everything and never gives up – a real WINNER!’
Greene made national headlines as she ran for the Republican nomination for deep red district of Georgia’s 14th congressional district as it was revealed she is an avid QAnon believer. This means she subscribes to a set of conspiracies put out by an anonymous poster believed to be a federal official revealing the ‘deep state’ is out to bring down Donald Trump.
She will likely take the retiring Rep. Tom Graves’ seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in the New Year as it’s unlikely the seat will flip blue in November.
It was also revealed by CNN Tuesday that Greene wrote blog posts for a conspiracy-laden website where she promoted ‘Pizzagate.’
Her invitation to the Republican National Convention speech at the White House this week comes as it was also revealed Tuesday that in 2019 she called for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be given the death penalty.
‘We the people are fed up,’ Greene wrote in a lengthy Facebook post on her campaign’s page in February 2019 calling for the impeachment of Pelosi.
‘Nancy Pelosi will be receiving copies of a White House Petition demanding the impeachment of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. The reason? For crimes of treason, which is not only an impeachable offense, but also a crime punishable by death,’ Greene wrote.
The year-and-a-half-old post included a link to a petition she created titled, ‘Impeach Nancy Pelosi for crimes of Treason!’
‘Nancy Pelosi is guilty of Treason,’ Green insisted. ‘Nancy Pelosi must be impeached, removed from office, for committing Treason.’
‘Once upon a time in this country The People gave a d**n. Once upon a time The People stood for something. Once upon a time The People would stand up against wrongs and would take action to right them,’ the candidate concluded.
In 2017 and 2018, Greene wrote two different blog posts for now-defunct website ‘American Truth Seekers,’ which was a conspiracy-laden website that stopped operating in 2019.
In one of the blogs posted in 2018, Greene promoted ‘Pizzagate,’ a popular conspiracy theory from 2016 alleging the Clinton and other Democratic Party leaders were running a human trafficking and pedophilia ring as out of a Pizza Shop – a popular conspiracy called ‘Pizzagate.’
Greene linked to a blog post from a separate conspiracy website speculating that ‘Pizzagate’ was real, and referenced it in her writing.
‘Shockingly, the website tells about information that was only whispered about and called conspiracy theories by all main stream [sic] news media,’ Green wrote, linking to the post that falsely claimed a Democratic National Committee staffer was the source for Wikileaks.
‘Yet when you go to the website, it tells as if Seth Rich is speaking from the dead saying all the horrible things are true. That Hillary rigged the election against Bernie Sanders. That John Podesta had him murdered. That John Podesta is a pedophile and pizza gate [sic] is real,’ She added in the November 2017 post.
In a separate 2017 blog post, Greene wrote that a counter-protester dying during a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia was an ‘inside job’ meant to ‘further the agenda of the elites.’
‘What would be the agenda of the elites? Hmm.. Remember Barack Obama’s roots are in community organizing. As a matter of fact that’s about all he did before he became President. It’s also been reported that Obama has an office set up in Washington DC that is being run like a war room, with daily meetings. What would they be up to?’ wrote Greene.
She claimed that the ‘agenda’ in allegedly killing a counter-protest was a ‘coordinated war’ by former President Barack Obama and other Democrats to overthrow Trump from power.
