QAnon conspiracy theorist, anti-abortion zealot and Trump sycophant Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene got into an epic shouting argument with Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich. on the steps of the Capitol.
The squabble ensued following the passage of a House bill that would codify abortion rights into law, an imperative considering that anti-abortion laws that undermine Roe v. Wade are being passed in many Republican states.
Greene, as she is wont to do, screeched incoherently at Democratic lawmakers who had gathered to celebrate passage of the bill. Dingell, who is a strong supporter of a woman’s right to choose, yelled back that Greene was being uncivil.
“You should practice the basic thing you’re taught in church: respect your neighbor,” Dingell shouted. Greene yelled back, “Taught in church, are you kidding me? Try being a Christian and supporting life!” Dingell responded, “You try being a Christian… and try treating your colleagues decently!”
Roe V. Wade is the law of the land.
A woman has a constitutional right to an abortion in every state, and it’s an outrage that this fundamental and constitutionally-protected right is being undermined in many red states. The law that Texas just passed is so restrictive that is basically bans abortion, and I commend the House for passing a bill that codifies Roe v. Wade.
America is a secular democracy
For the record, Greene is a sorry example of a true Christian, nevertheless it’s pathetic that in a secular democracy lawmakers are arguing over what it means to be a Christian. Who cares? America isn’t a theocracy, it’s a secular democracy, and there should never be any religious arguments in Congress, not even outside in the Capital steps. Dingell accused Greene of being “uncivil”. No shit, that’s her default mode. I respect Dingell, and I think she’s doing a terrific job in Congress; however, I have some advice for her: Never argue with a fool, it debases you even when you win the argument.
