GOP lawmakers slam Marjorie Taylor Greene’s mask comparison to Holocaust

GOP Rep. Peter Meijer condemned comments by Rep. Marjorie Taylor comparing wearing masks to the treatment of Jews during the Holocaust. ’Any comparisons to the Holocaust, it’s beyond reprehensible,’ he said. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill. tweeted that Greene’s remarks amount to ’Absolute sickness.’ Rep. Liz Cheney lambasted Greene’s comparison as ’evil lunacy’ in a tweet.

It kinda is but not the way one thinks. Many partisans see the mask as a kind of group symbol. Many on the left wear one to not be seen as a conservative and vise versa. The Holocost began by making the jews apart of an outgroup- the enemy. Then overtime they moved to outright discrimination, then segrigation, and finally extermination. People forget that it began in 1933, they did not start exterminating people until 1940 to 1941.

There should be strenuous psychological examinations on people who run for power. The mentally ill need help, not power.

She didn't compare it the Holocaust, but the actions that lead up to it. If we aren't allowed to call these out, how do we prevent it from happening again?

if they require masks for people who decide not to get the vaccine and not for others, then it can be seen as the same thing as the yellow star the the nazis made the Jews wear. it will be used to try and shame those who opt not to get it. so she is right. I will never take a vaccine that is designed to alter my DNA. and before you start saying it doesn't... https://principia-scientific.com/modernas-top-scientist-we-are-hacking-the-software-of-life/

Have to say that having a situation of nask wearers looking upon non mask wearers as the spreaders of covid19 as equally sick as indicated in this report. On the holocaust oerhaps those who draw exclusively on the death of jews duribg tge holocaust that that also commits a a serious offence to those non jews who also list their lives in the same manner. There were others (non jew) killed by the nazi regime who were Poles, soviet POWs, homosexuals, disabled people, romanis, Serbs, Jehovahs witnesses and others. It was estimated five to six million jews and another estimated eleven million non jews. So I suggest all those who make the holocaust a singularly jewish issue are offending so many other families who also lost lives in this ever unforgettable dark history so at least commend the sixteen to seventeen million of a huge cross section of murdered souls. Take out religion, race, sexualityvabd start remembering ALL of these people AS people if all backgrounds NONE of whom deserved to lose their lives.

It’s interesting how when Democrats compare something to Nazi Germany it’s okay, but not when republicans do it.

This is what happens when you hand a hillbilly a hot mic. This ranks right up there with her space laser comment. Equally as intelligent. A true beacon of hope for the modern GOP.

She's a really really sick individual. Like almost worse then Ted Bundy or John Wayne Gacey. I would put her mentality in the same category as both of them

Can someone or something cancel, replace, and exile this moron? I’m a card carrying Republican since Reagan trounced Carter; and, I’m not only appalled, but disgusted in the direction the party has taken. We need to rid the party of the loon jobs and fools who mindlessly feed on the BS fodder served up by OAN, NEWSMAX (and FOX to some degree). Courses in critical thinking should replace BS liberal classes that teach globalism and other useless ideology. The dregs of our party subscribe to QAnon and believe the vapid rhetoric of Tucker Carlson - not being able to distinguish commentary from real news. Not that I’m happy with Biden, but we had four years of listening to the syphiliitic ramblings of a walking list of psychiatric symptoms that most of us erroneously voted for. Although, I did like SOME of his policies, his late response to the pandemic, and failure to act responsibly during, cost so many American lives. But, the proverbial proof was already in the pudding when he revealed himself during his speeches and how he handled himself on the political world stage. Marjorie Taylor Greene is just another chip off the ole bull dropping. Having her in Congress puts our party in peril. We can do better!

Ok new rule. Nobody is allowed to compare anyone else to Hitler or anything else to the Holocaust. This isn't due to a lack of decency but more a lack of creativity/historical knowledge to make other comparisons.

Interesting how they glossed over the fact that those 'outraged GOP reps' are all about to be primaried out and are desperate for a soapbox to preach from.

Is it possible she's just being deliberately inflammatory? In other words, basically a troll? She says some of the most outrageous and controversial things, and I have to think that down deep she doesn't believe any of that nonsense...she just enjoys the agitation of everybody else. Some people just like to stir up trouble for no other reason than to watch the chaos from a safe distance and laugh.

Why is it you can’t make a comparison to the Holocaust? Could I say the Holodomor was just as bad. I find it odd that nothing in history can be comparable to it, I know the comparison she was Trying to make just came out the wrong way. God forbid these days someone says something that hurts ppls feelings😫 ppl are so soft.

Thanks GOP for minimal pushback. If Qanon wants to found their own party, let them.
