Marjorie Taylor Greene, the “national divorce” Trump congresswoman and “future star” campaigner

Donald Trump pleaded “not guilty” on Tuesday to the 34 charges against him in relation to an irregular payment he would have made in 2016 to buy the silence of porn actress Stormy Daniels. His presence in court in Manhattan (New York) is historic because it represents the. first impeachment of a US president.

Hours later, Trump spoke to a crowd of about 200 people from his Mar-A-Lago estate in Florida. “The only crime I have committed is to fearlessly defend our nation. from those who seek to destroy it,” he said.

Donald Trump's arrival at his imputation.

Throughout the day, the hard wing of the U.S. Republican Party took to the networks to defend the former president. They claim that his indictment is “horrible” and the result of a “witch hunt”.. But some have been more significant and have come down to the street, to the New York street, to express their support for Trump.

This is the case of Marjorie Taylor Greene, congresswoman for Georgia, who traveled to New York to lead the protests. She first wrote on Twitter: “Pray for President Trump. Pray for our country. This is horrible“. And then, already in the Big Apple: “Today I came to New York to make my voice heard in a peaceful and patriotic way: “PRESIDENT TRUMP DID NOT DO ANYTHING WRONG!”.

There he stood, megaphone in hand. And there he exclaimed, “We are here to peacefully protest against the persecution of an innocent man. Not just any innocent man, this is the former president of the United States of America”. But who is Marjorie Taylor Greene?

Disinformation and hatred?

“People like Marjorie Taylor Greene, known for spreading disinformation and hate speech.while you are in the city, be on your best behavior”. This is what the mayor of New York, Democrat Eric Adams, said last Monday during a press conference, aware that the congresswoman was in the city to join the protests against the attempt to try Trump.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, known for spreading disinformation and hate speech” says of her the mayor of New York.

The case of Trump – his figure, his management and his lies – have further divided a country already quite divided before the appearance of the straw-colored-haired Republican, and Taylor Greene is among those who believe that reconciliation is best a near total breakup.

Separating red and blue states

Because the 49-year-old congresswoman was already famous before her New York appearances with her ‘national divorce’ theory. It is about coming to terms with the facts and separating the two halves, Republican and Democrat, because they don’t fit together. “We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states, And shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this,” he wrote in February of this year on Twitter.

Greene is fed up with progressives. “Since the problems of the culture woke sick and disgusting shoved down our throats to the Democrats’ treasonous ‘America Last’ policies, we’re tired,” he added in that tweet.

Former President Donald Trump arrives to speak at his Mar-a-Lago estate hours after being arraigned in New York, Tuesday, April 4, 2023, in Palm Beach, Fla.

According to the Republican, if there is no divorce, states like Florida will become a mess like California. Although the sunny state overlooking the Pacific is fifth in GDP per capita in the US. You have to go all the way down to 28th place to see Georgia, Greene’s home state.

Democrats, those “socialists.”

The congresswoman fires with all the dialectical artillery at her disposal. In 2017 she publicly supported the QAnon conspiracy theory linked to the far right. She stated, “There is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take out this global clique of Satan-worshipping pedophiles.and I believe we have the president to do it.” The video with his statements is no longer on YouTube, where it has been removed “because it violated the policy on harassment and bullying.” He later distanced himself and rejected the “QAnon candidate” label.

She has called George Soros a Nazi; called the election of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib (both Congresswomen) an “Islamic invasion of our government”; and in 2020 shared a meme on Facebook in which she depicted herself holding an AR-15 style rifle. next to a collage of photographs of Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, along with Omar and Tlaib.

Republicans must “go on the offensive against these socialists who want to tear our country apart.”

On that occasion, he garnished the picture by declaring that the time had come for the Republicans to “to go on the offensive against these socialists who want to destroy our country.”. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denounced the meme as a “dangerous threat of violence” and Facebook eventually removed it for violating its policies on incitement to violence. Greene, as his master Trump would have done, said that the Democrats were “trying to cancel me before I’m even sworn in.”

Donald Trump held a press conference early this morning in Florida to respond to his impeachment.

“Stop socialism, stop the theft.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene was elected to Congress in the November 2020 election. Already when she was contesting the race for the Republican nomination, she received the support of Trump, who posted a tweet describing her as “a future Republican star.” a woman “strong in everything and who never gives up, a true WINNER!”:

Greene was the second Republican woman to represent Georgia in Congress. A lifelong Trumpian, she did not hesitate to second the former president’s accusations when he called for the recount to be stopped and proclaimed himself the winner of the election. On Twitter, Greene wrote that the recount should be stopped, the “theft” it meant, the “orchestrated fraud” by the “save America, stop socialism, stop the robbery”.
