    Monk, this sort of absurdity is unfortunately found in histories of the decline of societies and nations. Seems pretty typical of those periods in human history. I expect we'll see much more of it, unless perhaps Biden can get enough productive policies implemented to make any difference.

    She got elected because America has a serious bumblin' bumpkin problem.

    It is so hard to believe as someone growing up in America whose greatest claim was about democracy and fairness, to hear that someone in congress could say such things that was only thought to be claimed only to be in communist of fascist dictatorships is incomprehensible or at least was incomprehensible until Trump became president. I am sure those feelings were their before Trump but no one would have thought to even express these ideas until trump. I can only hope as an American that the country will wake of from this nightmare and finally reject it. Unfortunately it is clear from that most republicans current response that they will ignore what happened which only enables people liken M. Greene to openly vocalize such un-American statements.

    She also supports QAnon.
    And, yes, representatives can be impeached and removed with a two third majority in both chambers. The question is if more than one third of representatives find her opinions and behaviour acceptable. You may not like the answer.

    Censure should be possible. But if Republicans do not join in it will only be seen as a badge of honor by her.

    They should do it non-the-less, as it also shows to the voters what positions are tolerated, if not not expressively held, by their representatives.
    The public has a right to know.

    Not very much twisting if you read it.

    Nothing, so far as I can see. The quotations are all there and not disputed, and they form a consistent pattern of behaviour over a number of years.

    Still in denial about how insanely irrational the MAGA/Qanon crowd really were?
    Trump, his base, and all associated conspiracy theories have been slammed dunked into the latrine of history, and that's all there is to it.

    No.

    Just that today's tabloid media always skews the story, leaving or adding whatever it deems necessary to garner views. Its far too sensationalist to think this is anywhere near accurate.

    CNN is a left wing rag outfit and everyone knows that.

    Are you saying CNN made this story up?

    Come on now, you know that is not true. You may not like CNN, but they are fairly accurate. They are certainly far more accurate than any source that you rely on. You could not find anywhere that they twisted the story so now you are just ranting at them and making generally untrue claims about them that you cannot support.

    There seems to be this notion among the Trump supporters (pick any issue) that if you reject the source for the story that somehow the story is a lie.

    No. She said it, but I see it as being blown out of proportion.

    CNN is the equivalent of Fox News. It has a skewed history.

    Sometimes they are more accurate but it still remains notably biased comparable with Fox.

    She liked a post saying Pelosi needed a bullet between the eyes. What kind of 'context' do you imagine for such a post?

    You would support your claims with valid sources if you really believed them. We do not see that here.

    What would constitute a valid source in your opinion? Would Reuters do?
