Schneider drafting resolution to censure anti-LGBTQ rep

U.S. Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Deerfield) is drafting a resolution censuring fellow representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) again.

In a statement, Schneider said this resolution was in response for comparing President Joe Biden to Hitler in his recent speech calling MAGA Republicans anti-democratic.

Insider reported that the Anti-Defamation League, American Jewish Committee and an Israeli diplomat condemned her tweet with a video doctored to include Nazi imagery.

“I called out Rep. Greene in 2021 when she debased the memory of all those murdered in the Holocaust, and the heroic men and women who fought and died defending democracy against Hitler and his evil. Shortly afterwards, she apologized and said she understood the harm of false comparisons to the singular evil of the Nazis.

“Clearly, she has not learned, or worse perhaps she doesn’t care. She continues to dismiss the horrors of the Holocaust and use vile comparisons to incite her fans and divide our nation. Her hateful rhetoric has no place in our politics and certainly not in the chambers of Congress. She owes the American people, the survivors and families of those persecuted by the Nazis, and every family of what is still the “Greatest Generation” an immediate apology.

“Having demonstrated that her apology in June 2021 was insincere and that she remains devoted to sullying the reputation of the House of Representatives, I call on my colleagues, on both sides of the aisle, to condemn her loathsome rhetoric. I plan to again draft a resolution to censure her for these contemptible behaviors which I will introduce in the coming weeks.”

Greene has gotten involved with Illinois representatives before. She had a running feud with U.S. Rep. Marie Newman (D-La Grange) after Newman hung a transgender pride flag outside her office. Newman’s daughter is trans.

Green also spoke at a fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Mary Miller (R-Oakland) where she continued to attack Newman and her daughter.
