Ocasio-Cortez Raises Security Concerns After Confrontation With Controversial Congresswoman

Marjorie Taylor Greene Pulled Her Classic Aggressive Harassment Stunt on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Greene goes on to demand that Ocasio-Cortez get rid of her "diaper" and step outside of the locked office.

Greene has been a lightning rod for controversy since even before entering Congress in January, in part because of her past support of the weird QAnon conspiracy theory.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is fighting back against false accusations from the mainstream media as she continues to challenge Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to a debate over the Green New Deal.

Greene was accompanied on her 2019 visit to the U.S. Capitol by Anthony Aguero, a right-wing livestreamer who was seen in the halls of Congress during the January 6 insurrection led by a mob of supporters of then-President Donald Trump.

As a congressional candidate, Greene posted a photo in 2020 of herself with a gun next to images of Ocasio-Cortez and fellow Democratic Reps. "Crazy eyes. insane eyes".

In the video, Greene talks to the camera as they approach Ocasio-Cortez's office. Greene wrote "you're a traitor" and drew a picture of the US-Mexico border wall in the book.

Greene and her associates taunted Ocasio-Cortez and her staffers, calling the NY lawmaker a "baby" and referring to her office as a "daycare" and a "college sorority" because of a wall of Post-it messages left outside her office door by supporters. In the 2019 video, Greene says more conservatives should come to Washington and confront lawmakers.

"Biden says you can take off your mask", Dyer reportedly told Swalwell, to which the congressman replied, "You don't tell me what to f-king do".

"MTG has continuously lied about her behavior, even though you've had previous lawmakers claim they have been threatened by this", Alemany said of Greene's pattern of behavior. They said, "We love you guys", referring to the security officials.

Trustee, urged Hale to dismiss the bankruptcy. "The NRA will keep fighting, as we've done for 150 years". But Pronske countered that financial statements showed the NRA has "plenty of cash on hand".

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., spoke to Greene before she was removed from her committees and after Republicans started to complain about her attempts to delay routine floor actions, but neither those nor other conversations resulted in punishment.

"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, I'm an American citizen", Greene shouts through the door.

"Representative Greene tried to begin an argument with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and when Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tried to walk away, Congresswoman Greene began screaming and called Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer", the spokeswoman said in a statement to the Post.

"You don't care about the American people", Greene shouted.

"And any US Member of Congress supporting terrorists Hamas should be expelled".

In response to the video, Ocasio-Cortez told an NBC news reporter that Greene "needs some help".

"This is beneath the dignity of a person serving in Congress", Mrs Pelosi continued, calling it "a cause for trauma and fear among members".

In remarks to the media on Friday, Ocasio-Cortez responded to the ongoing harassment by suggesting that Greene is "deeply unwell".

The incident prompted Bush to ask Democratic leadership if she could move her office away from Greene at a time when the Georgia congresswoman was already under heavy scrutiny for her rhetoric and behavior.
