Marjorie Taylor Greene says call for ‘national divorce’ is not civil war as hysteria spreads over comment

U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene once again triggered Democrats and their allies as well as some members of her own party when the Georgia Republican suggested that it was time for a “national divorce” on Monday.

“We need a national divorce,” she wrote on Twitter.

“We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done,” she wrote to mark the occasion of President’s Day by suggesting that red and blue states should go their own way.

Her tweet drew a strong reaction from one Republican, Governor Spencer Cox of Utah who condemned it as “evil” while recommending a less drastic approach to healing the nation’s ugly political split.

“This rhetoric is destructive and wrong and—honestly—evil,” Cox wrote on Twitter. “We don’t need a divorce, we need marriage counseling. And we need elected leaders that don’t profit by tearing us apart. We can disagree without hate. Healthy conflict was critical to our nation’s founding and survival.”

With tempers still smoldering after Greene’s heckling of Biden during the State of the Union address two weeks ago, furious left-wingers flooded the zone on Twitter to rage against her remarks, including some who practically accused her of firing the opening shot of a second civil war.

Others weren’t so quick to condemn the feisty Georgia congresswoman.

Greene’s suggestion came an hour after another tweet that also rankled critics, one that unloaded on President Joe Biden who has yet to visit the site of the unfolding environmental catastrophe in East Palestine, Ohio but traveled to Ukraine for a public relations stop where he gave a man hug to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, an image that the media swooned over.

“This is incredibly insulting,” she said. “Today on our President’s Day, Joe Biden, the President of the United States chose Ukraine over America, while forcing the American people to pay for Ukraine’s government and war. I can not express how much Americans hate Joe Biden.”

In another tweet on the topic of Biden’s Ukraine photo op, she called for his impeachment as an alternative to divorce.

It should be noted that Biden has done nothing but to further exacerbate the political split with his constant race-baiting and dehumanizing of tens of millions of Americans who voted for the “wrong” guy despite his campaign trail pledge that he would be a unifier as the nation’s leader.

While many may believe that the nation has reached the point of irreconcilable differences with the uncompromising political left and the ruthless manner in which the Democratic party enforces its agenda, it is something that is taboo to acknowledge, especially when it comes from a lawmaker who has been an outspoken defender of traditional American values.

Greene sought to set the record straight that she wasn’t calling for civil war.

There are few GOP lawmakers who are able to push the buttons of Democrats like Greene who, like former President Trump, has proven to be resilient despite the relentless attacks on her by leftists who despise her more for being a strong, white, heterosexual Christian conservative woman than for her often fiery rhetoric.
