Majorie Taylor Greene Calls for a “Ban” on Kamala Harris
Right Wing firebrand Majorie Taylor Greene (MTG) has called for a “ban” on Kamala Harris over the VP’s stance on guns. The controversial Georgia Republican Rep also called the Vice President a “communist.”
MTG’s remarks came in response to Harris’s posting on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, that “weapons of war have no place on the streets of a civil society.”
“We need an assault weapons ban,” Harris wrote. “Congress, send it to [President Joe Biden’s] desk.”
“America needs a ban on communist politicians like you,” Greene responded. She continued by noting the importance of the Second Amendment as the US continues to struggle to control immigration at the southern border.
“Shame on you for trying to destroy Americans’ right to defend ourselves while your policies have caused skyrocketing crime and our country to be invaded by criminals, gangs, and terrorists,” Greene wrote.
Many joined MTG’s harangues of the VP with scathing comments on her original post, where Harris received a slew of sarcastic memes and comments connecting the statement to the Israel-Hamas war.
“What if Hamas invades my neighborhood,” one asked. “After all, Border Czar, you have let them in.”
“Lol. This is laughable, as terrorist threats are on the rise,” another said. “Sorry. We won’t be your sitting ducks.”
Harris’s comments and MTG’s response come on the heels of members of the ultra-progressive congressional group “The Squad” are calling for the US to “welcome” Palestinian refugees into the country. Former President Donald Trump warned on Facebook that such an action could have grave consequences.
In sharp contrast to the Democrats, Trump said that if elected president again, he will “bar immigrants who support Hamas from entering the US” and send officers to pro-Hamas protests to “arrest and deport immigrants who publicly support the Palestinian militant group.”
