One of the benefits of having political opposition as fanatical and stuporous as Donald Trump’s Republican Party is that they so often say out loud, and in public, exactly what atrocities they intend to commit and how they would govern if given the power. Not that it makes their intentions any less abhorrent, but at least we know what’s on their minds.
On Saturday Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene ventured to Michigan to be part of the opening act for yet another Trump cult rally. In her remarks she candidly revealed just what sort of “leadership” she would provide if she were get a political promotion. And it was precisely what you would expect from a demagogue who seeks to force her political and religious beliefs done the throats of the nation.
Greene was greeted with the adoration of a messianic apostle. The crowd recognized her closeness to Trump and his cult hierarchy. So they cheered her when she said that…
“I am not going to mince words with you all. Democrats want Republicans dead and they have already started the killings.”

This is the sort of rhetoric that is intended to incite violence. You don’t tell a frothing throng of devotees that there are people who are bent on murdering you – and have already begun the slaughter – without the knowledge that it will provoke them into what they might consider self defense. Greene actually wants these people to assault any Democrats they may happen to encounter, because if they don’t the Democrat will slay them where they stand. It’s sick, dangerously reckless, and characteristic of tyrannical wannabes.
Greene’s lust for power greatly exceeds her ability to understand what legal constraints come with it, or what moral standards are necessary to exercise it responsibly. For Greene, and her GOP comrades, just acquiring power is the goal, and deploying it to suppress her foes is its only purpose. Which explains her comments on the podcast of crusading conservative Charlie Kirk, where she said that…
“If I was Speaker of the House … I would reign with an iron fist. And I would end everything that [Democrats] have been doing.”

Good to know. So along with fomenting violence, Greene would dispense with democracy. She would strongarm her congressional colleagues. She would “reign” supreme in the “People’s House.” Her “iron fist” control of the lower chamber of Congress would be her fiefdom.
Republicans have admitted that they don’t respect the democratic process. They refuse to accept any election results where they are not the winners. And we know this because they say so. Greene was helpful enough to let everyone know what her intentions are should she and her party take the majority in the upcoming midterm elections. Now it is up to the rest of the freedom and democracy loving American people to make sure that doesn’t happen.
