Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) seems to think the Jan. 6 insurrection was not adequately planned. In her view, it needed more guns to get the job done—and Greene at the helm to help organize it. “I want to tell you something,” she told attendees at the New York Young Republicans Club gala on Saturday night, according to the New York Post. “If Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, we would’ve been armed.” Her ill-advised and legally precarious attempt at a joke was made to a crowd full of conservative A-listers, including presidential son Donald Trump, Jr.; suspended lawyer Rudy Giuliani; and Roger Stone, all of whom share the position of being in past legal jeopardy due to Donald Trump. Greene, who was honored by the club, was followed by Trump Jr., who made jokes at the expense of Hunter Biden.
"ill advised and legally precarious" is right. Still, got to give her her props, the Jan 6 insurrection made the Beer Hall Putsch look good. It was an amateurish badly planned coup attempt. Saying it could have been better planned and executed isn't wrong.
The Jan. 6 Committee has produced evidence that guns WERE in the possession of the militias invading the Capitol building to enact Trump's coup. Again, published reports immediately after Jan 6 documented that people with long guns were intercepted inside the Capitol building. As MTG did help organize the coup, she is bullshitting as usual.
"Escobar: I was in the last group to leave the gallery, along with Mikie Sherrill, because Pramila Jayapal was using a cane and we stayed behind to make sure she got out safe. I don’t remember there being a police officer there to escort us out. As we descended the stairs, going from the third floor to the second, I turned and saw men with long guns facedown on the floor and officers surrounding them with drawn guns. The men on the ground were looking right at us. It was just awful..."
Back in saner days, the repucks would have censored her at the very least.
