Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) spoke at a white nationalist conference in Florida on Friday evening.

Greene, a QAnon conspiracist and rabidly anti-trans Republican, was the surprise speaker at the third annual America First Political Action Conference in Orlando, organized by white nationalist figurehead Nick Fuentes.

Fuentes, an antisemite and racist who attended the deadly 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and who was recently subpoenaed for his involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, excitedly introduced Greene as the featured speaker from behind a lectern inside the Marriott Orlando World Center, according to a livestream of the event. (HuffPost was denied entrance to AFPAC.)

In her speech, Greene referred to the assembled AFPAC crowd — among them prominent right-wing extremists who have been photographed giving the Nazi salute and reciting the infamous “14 words,” a white supremacist slogan — as “canceled Americans.”

“You’ve been handed the responsibility to fight for our Constitution and stand for our freedoms, and stop the Democrats who are the communist party of the United States of America,” Greene said.

 

She also took time to attack transgender people, claiming Democrats have destroyed “gender” and “pronouns.”

Her speech was immediately followed by a series of virulently racist and homophobic diatribes from prominent extremists.

“They want to replace you,” said Vincent James Foxx, a former propagandist for the white supremacist street-fighting club Rise Above Movement. “Western white culture is the majority culture, to which even non-whites assimilate into today — and they’re better off for it.”

Then far-right podcaster Stew Peters called for the execution of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, whom he falsely blamed for causing the coronavirus pandemic.

“Tony Fauci literally unleashed a bio weapon on the world. Why is this man running around free instead of hanging on the end of a noose somewhere?”

The crowd roared.

Greene’s presence at AFPAC underscores the thin line separating the Republican Party from the white nationalist extremist movement in America. Greene, after all, was not the only public official who spoke at AFPAC on Friday night.

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), who spoke at last year’s AFPAC, made an appearance via a pre-recorded video, as did Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers and Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin, both Republicans.

Greene is also scheduled to speak Saturday morning from the main stage of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the pre-eminent annual gathering of the conservative movement in America, a few hours before former President Donald Trump is set to speak from the same stage.

HuffPost also spotted Greene at CPAC on Friday — only a few miles from the site of AFPAC — where she was treated like a celebrity, posing for photos and conducting interviews with right-wing media outlets.

Last year, Greene was stripped of her committee assignments for promoting violence against Democrats.

  1. Hi Scottie;
    I think we all know Green as a walking talking fertilizer plant dumpster fire. In addition to her removal from her committee appointments, are you aware of her sponsored bills?
    Congressional Gold Medal for Kyle Rittenhouse.
    Dismantling of the ATF.
    Fire Dr. Fauci. Well, actually place his wage at $0. Same general thing.
    Bar immigration.
    Keep gun ownership information private and remove all barriers to gun ownership.
    3 Resolutions to impeach Joe Biden
    One resolution to expel Maxine Waters for “promoting violence” in regards to BLM movement.
    One resolution to remove Maxine Waters from committee appointments.

    The ONE thing she did that could possibly be considered humane and decent is forward a resolution in honor of Michael D’Angelo Garigan. This police captain died of covid in Georgia. Oddly enough, the very thing that killed him, covid-19, she has gone out of her way to make as deadly as possible: banning the required masks, stay at home orders, 6-foot space orders, fighting against mandatory vaccines for public workers. Yet, covid has killed four times more police officers than anything else, except perhaps Crispy Creme.

    Hugs;

    1. Hello Randy. She is a troll out for attention. That sums her up completely. Even before she was elected she did shit like chase down David Hogg on camera while he was still a minor after the school shooting at his school. She was following him shouting comments / questions at him designed to get an emotional response. She was being a bully, and not an adult. She is the perfect person to represent the rabid right wing, they love that kind of stuff. Also before elected she went to the capital building and yelled insults into the door mail slot of AOC’s office, again acting like a preteen bully and not an adult. Her resolutions and bills she sponsors are just designed to be firebombs, designed to cause uproar and irritate her co-workers. None of them are serious, and a member of congress paid to make laws for the country to be acting like that is sickening. Hugs
