Democrats want to CENSOR Marjorie Taylor Greene for ‘anti-Semitic’ Twitter posts that say ‘Joe Biden is Hitler’ and share doctored video of the president with a mustache surrounded by swastikas
- If the decision was passed, she would demand that she stand in the well and be criticized
- Last month she retweeted the photo of Biden as Hitler as he denounced MAGA
- She wrote ‘Biden is Hitler’ in another post
- Video she retweeted had images of swastikas as a backdrop to the Biden speech
A group of Democrats in the House of Representatives has introduced a resolution to criticize Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after her post comparing President Joe Biden to Hitler amid his attacks on MAGA Republicans.
She also tweeted a video giving Biden a Hitler mustache and placing images of swastikas in the background.
The controversial lawmaker has already been stripped of his committee duties by the Democratic majority over past conspiratorial comments and other matters. She visited the Holocaust museum and apologized after other remarks that colleagues slammed as anti-Semitic and disrespectful.
The Georgia lawmaker compared Biden to Adolph Hitler during his speech, calling MAGA a threat to democracy. She also called out the deep red lighting for the event, which drew some ridicule from conservatives online. She also tweeted a hashtag calling him a Nazi.
When a member of Parliament is subject to censure, they must stand before their colleagues in the well of the House while the Speaker of Parliament reads the text of a resolution reprimanding them.

Had she made such comments in the hall, a colleague could have demanded that her words be “taken down”.
‘They chose this imagery. It’s unreal. Joe Biden is Hitler. #NaziJoe has to go,’ she wrote.
The lawmaker retweeted her own earlier comment, writing: ‘Joe Biden just declared us enemies of the state. Biden is a danger to us all. Joe Biden MUST BE TRIED!’
She also tweeted a ‘deepfake’ video on September 1 of Biden that made it look like he had a Hitler mustache and subbed the audio with historical audio of one of Hitler’s rants.

Representative Brad Schneider (D-IL) said he drafted the resolution after an earlier imbroglio but dropped it after Greene visited the Holocaust Museum
Majority Democrats have already voted to strip Greene of his committee duties
“What we all saw tonight from Biden,” she wrote. ‘I guess when President Butterbeans is frail, weak and suffering from dementia, the Hitler pictures were their attempt to make him look “tough” as he declares war on half of America as enemies of the state .’
“Or it’s true..” she added.
Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Il..) drafted the resolution after previously creating one over the summer over her statements comparing vaccine mandates to the Holocaust. Greene tried to put the matter behind him, issued an apology and visited the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Schneider ripped Greene in a statement to Washington Postwhich reported the effort, saying her comments “clearly demonstrate that she hasn’t learned, or worse perhaps, she doesn’t care.”
The House is out of session until the election, meaning the decision likely wouldn’t come until a “lame duck” session after control of the chamber is determined.
‘Rep. Greene demonstrated that her apology in June 2021 was insincere and that she remains dedicated to tarnishing the reputation of the House of Representatives, Schneider said.
He is joined on the decision by reps. Nikema Williams (D-Ga.), Brenda L. Lawrence (D-Mich.), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and Kathy E. Manning (DN.C.).
A 2021 solution authored by Williams called for Green’s censure for a wide range of statements.
On October 5, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, an Orthodox Republican, wrote an op-ed in Jerusalem Post calling on GOP leaders to condemn her remarks, saying he was “appalled by its tolerance of the likes of Marjorie Taylor Greene.”
In May, as the earlier controversy simmered, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy took the unusual step of condemning Greene’s comments comparing mask mandates to the Stars of David that Jews were forced to wear in Nazi Germany.
“Marjorie is wrong, and her deliberate decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust to wearing masks is appalling,” McCarthy wrote.
No-confidence motions are privileged motions that bring a motion of disapproval to the floor of Parliament for a vote.
