Marjorie Taylor Greene is FURIOUS that people are talking about racism in the United States today, and argued during an appearance on Real America’s Voice over the weekend that it is unfair that white supremacists are being "targeted" in these discussions. She then goes on a completely racist rant and says that we should be talking about the "invasion" on our southern border and black-on-black crime. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

This past weekend, Marjorie Taylor green appeared on real America’s voice to Russian and defend white supremacists here in the United States. And I think we all know why she’s jumping in to defend white supremacists, because if they didn’t exist, she wouldn’t be in office. I mean, that’s her base. Those are her supporters. Those are the people that come out to see her speak. So here’s what Marjorie Taylor green had to say. Jerry Nadler was on the house floor and he was talking about white supremacy and he was bringing up the terrible shooting that happened. And, but totally ignoring the shooting that happened in California, that I think involved in Asian man, who was the shooter. These people are all guilty of these crimes and it’s not about race. It shouldn’t be about race, but they’re clearly racist as well. So white supremacy shouldn’t be the main target.
We should be more concerned about the illegal invasion at the border, the crime happening every single day on our streets, especially in cities like Chicago, we should go after criminals to break the law and not pursue people based on their skin color and how they vote. But that’s what the Democrats want to do. First of all, let me explain something here. The murder rate in Chicago, isn’t even the highest in the country. In fact, last I check. I don’t even know that it’s actually in the top 10. Maybe it is. Maybe it’s not. I definitely know. It’s not top five. Pretty sure it’s not even top 10, but do you know why Republicans like Marjorie Taylor green and everybody at Fox news say Chicago, because for them, Chicago is synonymous with black because that’s what they always wanna talk about. When they talk about all the shootings in Chicago, as the black on black crime here in the United States, hell they even made jokes after will Smith slapped Chris rock at the Oscars that, oh, now the media’s talking about black on black crime, but I love how she’s like, oh, we can’t, you know, it’s unfair to target the white supremacist.
We should be talking about the invasion at the border or the black on black crime. Like you immediately said, let’s not talk about racist. And then went into the, one of the most racist diatribes we could have imagined because the woman is effectively a parody of herself. Heck on Tuesday or, or Monday, excuse me, by the way, she put out a tweet where she quote, tweeted that 32 border crossers had been apprehended. 32 people that crossed the border illegally had been apprehended and she retweeted it and said impeach Biden for, for, for what, for doing what they’re supposed to do, which, which is what you want them to do. Arresting people that illegally cross the border. There’s not an invasion happening along the border. By the way, that is the kind of rhetoric used by people specifically in their manifestos is she’s not fooling anybody with this racist language that she is using. This is a perfect example, by the way, folks of the dog whistle invasion
Is a dog whistle. And I know a lot of people wanna say, there’s not a dog whistle went to Bullhorn. No, no, no. This is, this is dog whistle stuff. Okay. This the name Chicago, when you’re talking about crime and you bring up Chicago dog whistle, that’s why Fox news does it all the time. I have talked to the experts. I I’ve interviewed them by the way, for the ring of fire podcast, we’ve talked about this exact thing specifically with Chicago. They bring it up because people associate it with black on black crime. So in trying to defend white supremacists, Marjorie Taylor green ends up using the same language that we see the white supremacists using. And to be honest, that’s probably the least surprising thing that I’ve ever had to report on.
