The future female congresswoman drew the contempt of Republican leaders in her first run against neurosurgeon John Cowan, after it was reported that she promoted “Q”, an anonymous central figure in a conspiracy theory claiming that President Donald Trump secretly fights to take down a horde of pedophiles. The FBI has warned such marginal views could become a domestic terrorist threat.
But she still won a nomination in August and the GOP rallied behind her. Trump called her “the future star of the Republican party.” US Sen. Kelly Loeffler touted his endorsements at campaign events. And those who once opposed her, such as Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the head of the Republican Party, said they wanted to sit down with Greene and talk about her goals when she arrived in Washington.
Democratic candidate, Kevin Van Ausdal, withdrew from the race for family and personal reasons and Greene̵
7;s victory in her conservative realm was overwhelming.
She gives it a history of prejudice and a tendency to amplify conspiracy. She said that George Soros, a Holocaust survivor, collaborated with the Nazis. She calls “Q” “patriot” who is “worthy of hearing”. She said the deathly white supreme party rally held in 2017 in Charlottesville was a “job inside” to “continue the elites’ agenda.”
Greene said on Facebook that “there’s an Islamic invasion of our government office right now” and urges Muslims and Sharia law to “stay there in the Middle East,” according to Politico. Blacks, she said, “were” enslaved by the Democrats, “while white men were” the most persecuted group in the United States today. ”
Greene declined some of those comments during her campaign. In August, she told Fox News that QAnon was “out of my campaign” and that once she “started to find false information”, she “took a different route.”
But Greene continued to spread false and controversial information in court. In September, Greene stated in a tweet that “children should not wear masks”, disproving the recommendations of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other public health experts. She also posted on Facebook a picture of herself holding a gun along with pictures of Democrats. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, encouraged “vigorously conservative Christians to attack socialists who want to divide our country.” Facebook removed the photo today. after, say it violates the policy of the social network.
