Marjorie Taylor Greene Regrets The Comparison
On Monday, the Republican Representative from Georgia said admitted to saying the remarks and that these were offensive. So she wishes to apologize for the comments. She added that she was taught the lesson to admit her mistakes by her father. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s father had passed away in April. So she had no reservations about admitting her mistake.
The apology is a shift in her tone after the House is preparing to pass a resolution for censuring her. The statement was made weeks ago by Marjorie Taylor Green. She had called the decision of Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker, to making wearing masks a compulsion a Nazi step. She had said that Nazis had taken similar steps when they sought to persecute the Jewish at the time of the Holocaust.
In her interview in May, she had compared the masks to the Nazi mandate for the Jews of wearing gold stars. She said that back then, they were treated as citizens who were second class. She then claimed that Nancy Pelosi talked about the same kind of abuse.
However, her colleagues from the Republican Party criticized her for the remark. However, that had made her defend her comment even more heavily. However, it then had a repercussion on the fourteenth Congressional District of Georgia. Several voters were left dismayed by the comparison. Furthermore, Representative Brad Schneider, an Illinois Democrat, talked about introducing a resolution to censure such comments. Schneider had tweeted that Marjorie Taylor Greene’s comments were disrespectful to the victims of WWII.
