Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene defends herself in floor speech: ‘None of us are perfect’

FOX:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., said she regretted her past statements on QAnon conspiracy theories and they do not represent her beliefs today, in a floor speech before the House was to take a vote to strip her from committee assignments.

“These were words of the past, and these things do not represent me,” Greene said in her first House floor speech of contrition Thursday. “They do not represent my district, and they do not represent my values.”

Greene, a freshman rep from Northwest Georgia, sought to introduce herself to the House as a “regular American” who didn’t trust the government and media and went down a wrong path with QAnon conspiracies that she now regrets. 

“I was allowed to believe things that weren’t true and I would ask questions, questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret. If it weren’t for the Facebook posts and comments that I liked in 2018, I wouldn’t be standing here today,” Greene said. “And you couldn’t point a finger, and accuse me of anything wrong. Because I’ve lived a very good life that I’m proud and my family’s proud of.”

Greene said she’s since “walked away” from QAnon and when she ran for congress in 2020 she never campaigned on any of the conspiracies that she posted about in 2018. She said school shootings are real and the 9/11 terrorist attacks did happen, despite her past comments that questioned both.

“I think it’s important for all of us to remember, none of us are perfect,” Greene said.  more

SNIP: If anyone has a link to HER speech, please post it in comments.
I’m not going to accept, 100%, media’s explanation/ version of what she said, because all of them contain only some of her quotes but lengthy opinions of said quotes. No video, no audio clips of it. [That’s huge fail, FOX]

  1. McCarthy wants her stripped. The dems want her removed from congress. Wasn’t it Rep Greene who wanted Trump impeached from day one? Violence inciter Maxine Waters wants Trump tried for pre-meditated murder.
    McConnell gives the gavel to Schumer. Military is racist. The flag is racist. The cross is racist. Trannies good. Straight people bad.
    There are is no truth, honor, ethics or morality in the current gov’t. Washed away with Trumps presidency.

  3. Some of y’all in the shit states need to start attending your county meetings. Those are the people who need to back up the representatives. We’re not going to complain and shit post on twitter or gab and expect shit to change. Have we learned nothing from the 0bama era?

  4. See what apologizing gets you when you’re dealing with your enemies. They see weakness, then they go for the kill.

  5. MJA, I attend the County GOP Committee meetings. I am Chair of our town committee.
    Sadly, many of our GOP members in Maine are Susan Collins type RINOs.
    Add to that we have become MA,CA,NY North in Southern Maine.
    We conservatives do speak up. We support our candidates but we’re a shit state with a shit Legislature and a dictator for a Governor.
    Hopefully we get a bold conservative candidate for Governor next year. Our committee will be out for them.

  6. She’s as close to perfect as Trump, Rand Paul and the like. The rest of the GOP needs to be put out of office. What a ship of rats. We need a replacement party – the GOP is too rotted.

  7. Is there one rep in the House that will tell the dems to fuck the fuckity fuck off???

    How can the opposition strip our sides’ committee appointments? Why hasn’t one other R House member stood with this woman? Tom Tancredo, after he served his 3 terms, use to sub for Mike Rosen and tell stories about the way things happened in the House. And if you weren’t on board with “leadership” you better get used to your basement office assignment because you just weren’t gonna get to play.

    Congress is worse than the Federal Assembly in Russia. ANYONE that thinks we have the slightest bit of representation in Congress by the Republican Party is fucking delusional.

    Next? Some strongly worded tweets from Jim Jordan. Fucking sickening.

  8. From what I have observed, Q Anon is either somebody’s idea of an elaborate joke or a false-flag operation by the Left designed to deceive and/or root out Conservatives. I tend to lean toward the latter.

    Sorry if you are a True Believer, but I think the reality speaks for itself.

  9. Where’s all the Qanon salesmen that comment here and tried to sell that bag of shit theory forever with a bunch of name calling involved…..*crickets*….Yep….predictable…..

  10. You’d best all remember that these same people will be persecuting most of us for some of our comments we’ve made here.
    I’m so pissed that the republicans went after her I wish I could spit in their faces.
