Salvation! I’m with the Republican Party’s public relations department, and I’d like to briefly tell you about a little “whoopsie” we had over the weekend involving GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
But before we get to that, God bless America, except the ungodly liberals and anyone who disagrees with us! And please don’t forget to donate so we can patriotically continue to pay former President Donald Trump’s legal bills and defeat Wokeness and Hillary Clinton and also invade Canada.
Now for the kerfuffle of the weekend. Funny story. Turns out Greene – or MTG, as we like to call him – spoke at a white nationalist conference in Orlando on Friday night, which we’re sure was a total accident, because who of between us didn’t accidentally walk into a crowd of white supremacists and start talking about “America first”?
MTG is “not aligned with anything controversial”
This completely unplanned pre-planned speech was both unfortunate and likely President Joe Biden’s fault. The fact that the crowd at the America First political action conference indulged in some light-hearted praise of Hitler and, before Marjorie spoke, were asked to give “a round of applause for Russia” before turning launch into an enthusiastic chant of “Putin! Poutine! Poutine!” was certainly not a reflection on Greene’s decision-making. It was probably the fault of left-wing saboteurs, or perhaps antifa or Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The conference was organized by Nick Fuentes. He is – funny story – a far-right, white nationalist American political commentator, but the only way for anyone to find out is to go through the laborious and unreasonable process of typing “Nick Fuentes” into Google and seeing that the whole thing the first entry describes him as “a far-right, white nationalist American political commentator”.
Additionally, the Anti-Defamation League describes him as a white supremacist. Again, no one could find out unless they google his name and read the second sentence from the first entry, which reads, “The Anti-Defamation League has described Fuentes as a white supremacist.”
That’s obviously a bridge too far for a busy patriot like MTG, so it makes sense that she answered the weekend “whoopsie!” saying, “I don’t know Nick Fuentes. I’ve never heard of it, I’ve never seen a video. I don’t know what his views are, so I’m not aligned with anything controversial.
“I need ammo, not a round”:Zelenskyy is the hero his country needs as Russia invades
Correct. He introduced her, but she doesn’t know him and has never heard of him. She’s not aligned with anything controversial, instead focusing on big issues like ‘Jewish space lasers’ and appearing on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ ‘Infowars’, as she did last week. , to talk about beating up transgender people.
Greene is a favorite among our beloved Republican base and a big GOP fundraiser ($$$!), and former President Donald Trump praised her during his Saturday night speech at the Action Conference. conservative politics, which was also held in Orlando.
So here in the Republican Party we certainly support Greene and accept the calm and respectful response she offered on Sunday as news of her conference appearance spread: “The Pharisees of the Republican Party could attack me for wanting to break down barriers and speak to a lost generation of young people who are in desperate need of love and leadership.
We made this coming Nazi. Isn’t she a hoot?!?
Columnist Connie Schultz:The baptism crisis of the Catholic Church is fabricated. Faith is greater than grammar. Amen.
Columnist Rex Huppke:American children watch Russia’s war against Ukraine. We should be careful.
Be that as it may, to assuage the rebukes of basic human decency in the lame media, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released a statement on Sunday saying, “White supremacy, neo-Nazism, the rhetoric of hatred and bigotry are disgusting and have no place in the Republican Party.”
Focus on Trump. Oh, and America
But we don’t want to lose any of your awesome supporters, so rest assured, people like Greene (or you!) who attend events that include hate speech, bigotry, white supremacy and neo-Nazism have a home. Anything less would cancel the culture.
To look closer:Black Lives Matter finances deserve the scrutiny they’re finally getting
Further, we do not want to distract MAGA-loving Americans from our main message, which currently is: “Woke Ukraine’s refusal to bow to the nice, great, and powerful Vladimir Putin will topple Hillary’s presidency. Clinton and we should all drive trucks to block school board meetings and invade Canada.
Thank you for your continued support, and once again donate or Hunter Biden will become Secretary of Education and turn all public schools into Marxist re-education camps.
God bless Donald Trump, then America!
