Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has had to be feeling pretty good over the last few weeks.
There was her takedown of CNN “reporter” Jim Acosta’s pathetic attempt at “gotcha” journalism, all caught on video. There was a judge’s ruling earlier this month that the claims against her by a group of radical leftists seeking to have her tossed off the ballot because she allegedly incited the Capitol riot had no merit. Plus, Greene, like many other pro-life conservatives, has to be stoked over learning via the Supreme Court draft majority opinion leak that the 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion ruling might be overturned.
That good feeling of being on the winning side of multiple arguments was likely part of what motivated Greene to take to the Twitter machine Monday to troll Vice President Kamala Harris who, like her boss, hasn’t had much to smile about politically-speaking in quite some time.
Here’s what Greene tweeted:
Since the Democrats are obsessed with investigating 1 riot, even though all the people involved have been arrested and charged and some are still rotting pretrial in jail, this is my new sign outside my office. pic.twitter.com/0EhLPTgPau

Many readers will recall that back in the summer of 2020 as the Antifa/Black Lives Matter-led riots were beginning to rage in Democrat-run cities across the country in response to the officer-involved death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd, Harris gleefully posted her support of the “Minnesota Freedom Fund” – a fund set up by professional agitators on the left to get those who looted small and big businesses alike and who torched entire city blocks in Minneapolis without regard to any of the city’s residents out of jail.
In the immediate aftermath of the early rioting and fire-setting in Minneapolis, frustrated residents of the city – including senior citizens – were seen in interviews on TV crying and cursing about what the rioters had done, making the point that what they did helped absolutely no one. But not Harris, who at the time had already dropped out of the presidential race but was still being floated as a possible vice presidential pick for Joe Biden. This was her urging her followers to donate to the rioter bailout fund:

I have zero doubt that Harris, a former prosecutor, knows exactly how such types of funds are typically used. The money is set aside to bail out some of the worst offenders who are arrested during so-called “peaceful protests.” These same offenders invariably turn right around and commit more wrongdoing, with some of it being even worse than what they were originally arrested for. This is exactly what happened in the case of the Minnesota bail fund, which bailed out a twice-convicted sex offender, a woman charged with second-degree murder, and two men who went on to participate in separate violent attacks on senior citizens.
Greene’s tweet was a timely reminder that unlike the false allegations of “inciting” the Capitol riot that were made against Greene and others, the people who pretend to be the most outraged about what happened on Jan. 6th, 2020 are actually guilty in the minds of many of much worse, as we’ve repeatedly been reminded in the aftermath of the SCOTUS leak.
