Parkland parents unleash on conspiracy Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene after harassing video posted
It has been almost three years since the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, but now it's a different "Marjorie" who is a threat: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, the newly elected Republican from Georgia.
Since taking office, it was revealed that she chased Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg as he lobbied Capitol Hill for action to ban dangerous weapons. She denies that both the Parkland and Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings ever took place. She has also said that Sept. 11 was an inside job and that Hillary Clinton is murdering children to wear their faces.
A man was filmed placing two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic Parties on Jan. 6, and investigators suspect they were slated to go off and distract police from the attack on the Capitol. Police were able to deactivate the bombs. They never went off, but the Capitol was already understaffed and under attack.
CNN reported Wednesday that federal investigators are concerned that the bomber will strike again. The Department of Homeland Security issued an urgent bulletin on Wednesday warning that there is a very real threat that violent anti-government extremists were will strike again. It's a sentiment that a Trump supporter echoed, saying ominously, "something's coming."
It took under three weeks for the Republican Party to crawl back to Donald Trump after the Capitol attack
It's been three weeks since President Donald Trump told his supporters at a Washington rally that they had to "fight" for him, and he would walk with them to the Capitol to complain to Congress about the 2020 election. Now Republicans want everyone to just "move on."
After terrified lawmakers panicked and were rushed to safety due to armed and violent people rushing the Capitol, they decided they weren't going to protest the 2020 election anymore. The incident left Americans rattled, according to a YouGov poll citing "62% of respondents said they were disappointed. Half said they were angry (51%) or ashamed (50%), with Democrats being more likely than the country overall to feel that way (74% angry, 66% ashamed)."
