Top Republicans Turn on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene

Multiple members of the GOP House leadership have rebuked freshman Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene for her repeated comparisons of the Holocaust to various aspects of coronavirus restrictions and regulations.

Both House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and second-in-command Steve Scalise said the Georgia Republican was wrong for repeatedly comparing mask mandates and vaccine identification proposals to what Nazis perpetrated during the Holocaust.

“Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling. The Holocaust is the greatest atrocity committed in history. The fact that this needs to be stated today is deeply troubling,” the majority leader said in a statement. “Americans must stand together to defeat anti-Semitism and any attempt to diminish the history of the Holocaust. Let me be clear: the House Republican Conference condemns this language.”

Similarly, a spokesperson from the Louisiana lawmaker’s office told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that Scalise “does not agree with these comments and condemns these comparisons to the Holocaust.”
