Marjorie Taylor Greene, the normally popular GOP congresswoman, was blasted over the weekend by fellow Republicans after she appeared on video addressing a convention organized by an infamous anti-Semite and racist.

As The Wall Street Journal reports:


Mrs. Greene spoke Friday at the America First Political Action Conference. The conference was hosted by a group founded by Nick Fuentes, a far-right personality who the FBI has called a white supremacist in a court document. The event was planned as an alternative to the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual gathering of conservatives that separately took place in the same city, Orlando, Fla., over recent days. Mrs. Greene also participated in CPAC over the weekend.

In her remarks at the event, Mrs. Greene said she doesn’t believe in canceling people based on their beliefs or identity, and she assailed the Democratic Party, according to videos posted online of the event.

Mrs. Greene in a statement Sunday defended her appearance at the event. “I won’t cancel others in the conservative movement, even if I find some of their statements tasteless, misguided or even repulsive at times,” she said. “I encourage them to seek wisdom, and apologize to those who have been hurt by their words, as I’ve had to do. Our faith calls for charity and forgiveness.”

Over the weekend, some Republicans continued to criticize the gathering. Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah said Sunday on CNN, “Anybody that would sit down with white nationalists and speak at their conference was certainly missing a few IQ points.”

Greene later told CBS news that she wasn’t actually familiar with Fuentes in spite of speaking at his conference and that she refused to play ‘guilty by association.’

Fuentes has a known and well-documented history of racism and anti-semitism.

The Communist Jew is funding Soviet Black Republic and Satanist Child Pornography Syndicate. Yes. This is why “Whites cannot burn Crosses but Blacks can burn Cities.” Intelligence is racist but physical abilities are sexist. Whereas child molestestation and abortion are cheered and Man, Woman, unborn Children are shunned. WAKE UP AMERICA!
