Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene reported the Jan. 6 Capitol investment as “just a riot” and those here as “innocent” during an interview on Tuesday.
“And if you think about what our Declaration of Independence says, it says to overthrow tyrants,” Greene said on the show “The War Room,” which is run by media company Real America’s Voice.
“So there’s a clear difference between January 6 and the Marxist, communist revolution the Antifa, BLM, Democrat ground troops waged on the American people in 2020,” Greene told host Steve Bannon.
Greene said the media expanding rumors about her, other Democrats, and “innocent people that were at the Capitol on January 6.” Additionally, she said she is “fed up” that Congress isn’t focusing on her previously mentioned affirmations and on second thought on the Capitol attack.
So many people died due to attacking the Capitol and at least 140 police officers were injured. At least 684 people have been arrested and charged with crimes connected to the attack. Republican allies of former President Donald Trump have repeatedly tried to downplay the insurrection, with Trump himself once falsely saying rioters were just “hugging and kissing” police officers.
In a recent Rolling Stone report, two supportive of Trump rally coordinators named Greene as one of the GOP delegates they met when arranging their fights for January 6. A representative for Greene reacted that she didn’t have anything “to do with the arranging of any dissent” and had intended to protest President Joe Biden’s political race win on the House floor.
Greene’s office didn’t quickly react to Insider’s solicitation for input.
