Rather than apologize, Greene hurled insults at an outlet, which quoted her words directly.

Republican U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is declining to apologize for comments backing the lie that the 2018 Stoneman Douglas High School shooting was a planned, false flag event.

A report from Media Matters — an openly left-leaning outlet — uncovered Facebook posts where Greene supported that theory in her own words. She responded Thursday on Twitter by name-calling, but failed to dispute her responses in that Facebook thread, which remains active.

“Communists bloggers like [Media Matters] run the same playbook of lies and smears on people they feel threatened by,” Greene said, despite failing to point out a single lie in the report, which directly quoted her own words.

“Produce fake news, spread it all around, then tag all fake news stories about their victim in all future stories. Guess what? Nobody cares about your BS.”

“Communist.”

“Fake news.”

“BS.”

Yet nowhere did Greene apologize for backing the theory. She also failed to offer anything more than random right-wing insults to support her claim that the article quoting her directly was somehow a “smear.”

In May 2018, Greene linked to a piece regarding Broward Deputy Scot Peterson’s pension. Peterson served as the Stoneman Douglas school resource officer during the attack and earned widespread criticism for failing to confront the shooter.

One commenter responded to the post about his pension, saying, “It’s called a pay off to keep his mouth shut since it was a false flag planned shooting.”

Greene replied, “Exactly.”

Another person commented about the pension, calling it a “kick back for going along with the evil plan. You know it’s not for doing a good job.”

Greene answered, “My thoughts exactly!! Paid to do what he did and keep his mouth shut!”

Shortly after that report, Media Matters uncovered additional postings where she backed the lie that 9/11 was an inside job. Greene also endorsed comments regarding the Parkland shooting and the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting.

A Facebook commenter wrote, “none of the school shootings were real or done by the ones who were supposedly arrested for them.” Greene liked that post, full of other conspiratorial nonsense, adding “That is all true.”

Media Matters had flagged other 9/11 conspiracy comments from Greene in August. After that report last year, Greene backed off those remarks.

“Some people claimed a missile hit the Pentagon. I now know that is not correct,” Greene wrote on Twitter before deflecting blame for broadcasting those false beliefs. “The problem is our government lies to us so much to protect the Deep State, it’s hard sometimes to know what is real and what is not.”

She appears to be refusing the same path with regard to her lies regarding the Parkland attack.

Greene gained notoriety after openly backing the ludicrous QAnon conspiracy theory on her way to winning a congressional seat last cycle. The QAnon theory posits a shadowy group of mostly left-leaning deep state officials and Hollywood elite secretly abuse and sacrifice children, and that President Donald Trump was secretly working behind the scenes to expose and destroy the group once and for all.

Trump’s first term ended Wednesday.

    Trump’s ONLY term ended Wednesday and at the rate she’s going, Greene shouldn’t be there very long either.

    This is a poorly written article in that it’s wrought with loaded language. “Right-wing insults” should just be “insults.”

    “Backed the lie that 9/11 was an inside job” should be “backed the theory that 9/11 was an inside job.”

    “The ludicrous Qanon theory” should just be “the Qanon theory.”

    If you have to use loaded language to make your point, it means you’re trying to influence the reader. Objective Journalism is a dying discipline.

    Sitting On the Sidelines Insures your Loss of Freedom

    Rest assured this will not be allowed to stay up for long and I will most likely be banned from FB. Get this out now, do not hesitate. I will be forced to use other social platforms that have not yet been eliminated as Parlor has. They are coming after us, do not allow yourself to think otherwise folks. There comes a time when we must put some legs on that faith we say we have and now is that time. Many say they want revival. Now is that opportunity for a revival, it just isn’t coming in the way you would prefer.

    It has come down to this in America and every one of us must give an answer at least to one’s self, are we willing to give up our’s and our loved ones freedoms rather than fight the good fight of faith to take our country back from the communists? Truly, is living under communism preferable to you than dying? I ask you to consider what follows if we allow them to succeed.

    One thing leads to another in their evil scheme of controlling our lives. We are in the end time and that means if you give up your freedoms to stay alive, you still lose only this time it will be your eternal soul. This is because as you are already seeing they are firing and denying conservatives transportations on planes and jobs because of their conservative Christian ideology.

    Take note of this because it leading to the Mark of the Beast where man will not be able to buy or sell without the Mark. Do not let this get that far, so make up your mind to fight now!
    Orwell said when the coup happens people will choose to be happy as he put it meaning fall for falsities that are more than ready to wait for someone else to take up the banner and run with it. If that is our mindset, we are sure to lose our country to the communists. No, we must be of a mindset once given us, give me liberty or give me death, Patrick Henry.

    Never before in America are the words of Patrick Henry more front and center. America fought for its freedom against England and won and did it facing insurmountable odds because they trusted God and not a man more than anything else. You want the truth at this point in American history and the truth is George Washington a praying man lost more battles than he won against the British but never gave up kept praying, believing God, and won the war. His vigilance and/or perseverance brought about by his faith in God paved the way to win the war knowing it was a just cause.

    One must believe this with all his heart and soul because it may well be required. We must love freedom more than personal comforts and desires or this happiness Orwell called it.
    Patrick Henry said this and it fits us today. We go into this battle for the soul of a man armed with the truth. That truth is God gave us the freedom we have enjoyed and we as Christians have for the most part stood for the righteousness of God against the imposing sins of the flesh brought about by the communists that stole the election.

    Patrick Henry said, “They tell us, Sir, that we are weak — unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week or the next year? Will it be when we are disarmed, and when a guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction?

    Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak, if we make proper use of those means, which the God of nature hath placed, in our power. Millions of people, armed in the holy cause of Liberty, and such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.

    Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battle alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise friends to fight our battle for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave…
    Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! ´´

    Trust the Plan is what we have been told to do. What plan? For years that is what the so-called Qanon tells us and reassured us Trump will be reelected. This trust the plan is a deception in my opinion orchestrated by the evildoers to get us to sit down and shut up while they implement their communist agenda. If they can get us to buy into trusting the plan they eliminate any opposition, which expedites their agenda of the overthrow of America to Communism.

    The French Revolution saw its people take to the streets putting it all out there for their freedoms. This week, when the man many say Putin tried to kill with nerve agent returned to Russia they arrested him when he arrived. This brought the ire of the Russian people and they are in masses protesting demanding he is released.

    America it is time for us to take our country back and that means yes, you are going to have to put it all on the line. A coordinated attack on the hostile forces of the leftist communists must be planned. A plan that goes after the leaders of this communist revolution that includes Khan of Google, Dorsey of Twitter, Zuckerberg of Facebook, Obama, Hillary, Brennan, and Clapper.

    Bring these down and their revolution is brought to an abrupt halt for a time. From there the CEOs of transnational corporations that sold out America many years ago when NAFTA was passed must be removed. This is the only way we take back our country.

    Just massing up protesting does not get er’ done, they could care less about that because they’re demon-possessed people. Look at history to see what this accomplishes. Stalin, Hitler, the Pol Pot regime, and North Viet Nam show you their intent when a people rise, they exterminate them and those that survive they put in camps to reprogram their minds into acceptance of Satan’s agenda, which is killing the Christian and Israel’s support goes away. The extermination of the Jew is Satan’s primary goal for him to avoid the eternal Lake of Fire.
    Take solace in the fact God is in control and Satan will not be allowed to destroy the Jew and we Christians have a role in that, a just cause if you will.

    Jeremiah 31:35-37 Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name:
    36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.
    37 Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.

    You have heard it said go for the jugular or the head of the snake to stop it. That is what is demanded and that begins with stop believing the lies and deception of trust the plan that only gives them their space unimpeded to accomplish their will of destroying our country.

    Thank you for your excellent journalism work on Marjorie Taylor Greene. She should not be in congress. Hopefully she will be expelled by her peers.
