Marjorie Taylor Greene Removed from House Ed Committee

February 4, 2021

On February 04, 2021, the House of Representatives voted 230-199 to remove Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments (Education and Labor, and Budget).

Eleven Republicans joined 219 Democrats in supporting Greene’s committee removal:

  • Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)
  • Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY)
  • John Katko (R-NY)
  • Fred Upton (R-MI)
  • Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
  • Carlos Gimenez (R-FL)
  • Chris Jacobs (R-NY)
  • Young Kim (R-CA)
  • Maria Salazar (R-FL)
  • Chris Smith (R-NJ)
  • Mario Díaz-Balart (R-FL)

Greene has proclaimed the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (Parkland, FL) and Sandy Hook Elementary School (Newtown, CT) staged events (more on that here) and has called Parkland survivior, David Hogg, an “idiot” who is “trained like a dog” to advocate for gun control. In January 2020, Greene posted this Youtube video of herself badgering Hogg, who was in Washington, DC, to speak to Congress about gun control:

Marjorie Taylor Greene does not belong on an education committee.

And now, she is not.

    This is a great loss to the conservatives as they force her to apologize, as they have.. False flags will prove to be the truth. I pray she will be proven right in what she ran on and what got her elected. Looks like her electorate understood and voted her in.
    God bless and protect her from the slings and arrows.

      According to the Guardian, Greene got campaign financing from Barb Van Andel-Gaby, the daughter of Amway’s co-founder. Betsy DeVos and Blackwater’s Erik Prince are the offspring of the other Amway founder. I think it’s likely that the three are on God’s radar.
      God’s wrath was inflicted on Peters Island in the British Virgin Islands where Barb Van Andel-Gaby and her husband Richard Gaby own a resort.
      Daily Mail has a report including photos of Marjorie Taylor Greene. Does marriage between one man and one woman have varying definitions? If the Daily Mail posted lies, Greene should sue them. Has she?

        Linda,
        Unless I’m mistaken, Betsy DeVos married into the Amway scamway family. Erik and Betsy’s father made a fortune by inventing and selling the lighted visor mirror that is a common accessory in many vehicles. I don’t think the families were business partners.

        Thanks for the correction.

    Thanks, Mercedes. I don’t believe anything she says. She is the Pilar of conspiracy thinking and she lied on floor of the House about all the claims she made. She will use all of this to embolden herself to right wing republicans and Trump. She’s not going away but I’m glad she lost this committee appointment.

    I watched the vote’s conclusion, and then there was an hour’s testimony, organized by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, from members of the House on their experiences during the insurrection at the Capitol. I highly recommend you find the time to watch.

  4. Thank you to the 11 GOP for voting for what is RIGHT, not political! Greene is very scary with her weird beliefs and lies! Recently retired from Broward Co Public Schools, the video of her bullying David Hogg makes me wish I was there to stop her! MSD Survivors have been trying to stop school shootings! I taught Nick in 4th grade at Parkside El., near MSDouglas High, know teachers & admins there! For her to torture these young people is unforgivable! How dare she spread her crazy thoughts- shoot Speak Nancy for Treason! She got elected by her base which is tRump’s base in GA, she’s still kissing his ASS! Yes, I’m mad that she was on an Education Committee!!! Now they need to do the same on Senate’s Impeachment because tRump endangered all of their lives & our government was under attack by his rallies/crowd. His words and lies created a place for these crazy white supremacy military type, AKA: his base (proud boys, Qanon,…).

    I don’t know what “false flags” Polly Anglin is referring to, but she says she wants Greene to be proven “right.” She appears to be a QAnon supporter trolling for a place to vent. I am not sympathetic with Polly’s apparent endorsement of Greene and her eagerness to protect Greene from self-inflicted “slings and arrows.” Thanks to all who have exposed Greene’s malicious lies.

      CBS reported a high number of evangelicals believe in QANON and 1 in 6 Catholics do.

      If you are not familiar with Joshua Mitchell of Georgetown University who received grants from the Koch-linked Harry and Lynde Bradley Foundation and who is a fellow at the Heritage Foundation, I bring him to your attention.
      He was a “scholar” listed by Philanthropy Roundtable (10-7-2020, “The 1776 Commission: A Brief
      Guide for the Perplexed”) as a developer of curriculum for K-12 (1776 Unites) associated with Trump’s 1776 Commission.

      • Linda permalink

        Correction- The Philanthropy Roundtable article describes the 1776 Commission and 1776 Unites as having “similar names and missions” but, are “unrelated…(a member) “says there is no coordination planned between them at this time.”

        The P-R article states, “In addition to the 1776 Commission, another initiative was launched this February to promote America’s founding values….On Sept. 16, 1776 Unites announced its own curriculum intended to counter that of the 1619 Project.” The gist described is “rejection of victimhood …what our freedom makes possible even in the most difficult circumstances”.
        The P-H article identifies as members, 3 from private universities, reps from Hoover Institute and AEI and, the founder of 1776 Unites.
