3. She Took ~$183k PPP Loan, Never Paid It Back

4. She Said 9/11 Was A Government Conspiracy

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and other extreme MAGA members hand-selected by Speaker Kevin McCarthy for a newly established subcommittee will begin hearings this week to push debunked conspiracy theories about the origins of COVID.

“Marjorie Taylor Greene’s inclusion in the Oversight Committee hearing on COVID just proves it’s nothing more than a dangerous clown show to push debunked conspiracy theories found in the darkest recesses of the internet,” said Zac Petkanas, senior advisor to the House Accountability War Room. “According to Greene, COVID-19 – like the attack on 9/11 – was a government conspiracy and was created in a lab by Dr. Fauci so that the Deep State could impose Nazi era restrictions on the American people. Greene was so busy pushing crazy conspiracy theories that it’s almost impressive she found time to successfully apply for a six figure PPP loan that she never had to pay back.”

Rep. Greene’s Lies Regarding COVID-19:

  • Greene pushed the wacky conspiracy theory that the coronavirus was a bioweapon created in a Chinese lab with the help of Dr. Fauci.
  • Greene claimed on Steve Bannon’s podcast that Dr. Fauci should be in jail and attributed the COVID-19 virus to his “foul experiments.” 
  • Greene has been suspended by or banned from Twitter for spreading COVID-19 misinformation on at least three occasions:
    • Greene was suspended in July 2021 for saying that COVID is not dangerous for people unless they were obese or over age 65, and so vaccines should not be required.
      • During a press conference, Greene laughed and said “you crack me up” when she was told that all types of people have died from COVID-19. 
    • Greene was suspended in August 2021 for saying that the COVID-19 vaccines were “failing.”
    • Greene was banned in January 2022 for making a false claim about “extremely high amounts of Covid vaccine deaths.” 
  • Greene’s construction business, Taylor Commercial, Inc, received a $182,300 PPP loan in April 2020 which was forgiven in December 2020. 
    • Greene later called Biden’s student-loan-forgiveness plans “completely unfair.” 
  • Greene compared a mask requirement for the House Floor to the atrocities committed by Nazis in the Holocaust.
    • Days later, Greene again compared Democrats to Nazis, saying that Nazis were the National Socialist Party, “just like the Democrats are now a national socialist party.”  
    • Greene’s refusal to wear a mask led to at least 20 reprimands by the House sergeant-at-arms and at least $48,000 in associated fines

Further Examples of Extreme Behavior from Rep. Greene: 

  • In 2021, the House of Representatives voted to strip Greene of her committee assignments for her history of trafficking in racism, anti-Semitism and baseless conspiracy theories, along with her support for online comments encouraging violence against Democratic officials prior to taking office.
  • Greene is an election denier and a major proponent of the Big Lie. 
    • On January 5th, 2021, Greene told Newsmax that January 6th would be “our 1776 moment.” 
    • After the January 6th Insurrection, Greene told a YouTuber “I am one of those people” who would have been at the January 6th riots, adding, “that’s exactly who I am.” 
    • She even allegedly asked Trump for a presidential pardon for her Jan. 6 involvement.
  • In December 2022, Greene made violent, pro-insurrectionist comments on what would have happened if she had organized the January 6th insurrection, saying, “If Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, we would’ve been armed.”
  • Greene called QAnon “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out.”
  • Greene liked comments on social media in support for executing prominent Democrats: “Hang that bitch!”; “These Traitors need to be put to death as an example of what will no longer be tolerated in this country!!!” 
  • Greene called abortion “mass genocide” and supports abortion bans. 
  • Greene claimed that ‘Jewish space lasers’ are responsible for wildfires.
  • Greene thinks 9/11 was an inside job. 
  • Greene agreed with comments on Facebook claiming that the Parkland, Sandy Hook and Las Vegas shootings were staged. 
  • Greene does not believe in the “so-called science” of evolution.
