GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene & Paul Gosar Speak At White Nationalist Event

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) fired back at her critics on Sunday, condemning “identity politics,” after she spoke at an event held by a white nationalist.

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Arizona) also spoke at the event.

Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming), former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDowell issued statements denouncing Greene’s actions.

Greene responded that she wouldn’t speak out against fellow Republicans even if she didn’t agree with them.

“It doesn’t matter if I’m speaking to Democrat union members or 1,200 young conservatives who feel cast aside and marginalized by society,” Greene said in a statement. “The Pharisees in the Republican Party may attack me for being willing to break barriers and speak to a lost generation of young people who are desperate for love and leadership.”

“It wasn’t an alignment. It was to talk about getting everyone together to save our country,” she added.

She added that she had not been aware of Nick Fuentes‘, who hosted the conference, views, and that she did not endorse white nationalism.

“I do not know Nick Fuentes. I never heard him speak. I’ve never seen a video. I don’t know what his views are so I’m not aligned with anything controversial,” she said.

Greene was introduced to the crowd after Fuentes elicited applause from the audience after calling the Capitol attack “awesome” and asking for cheers for Russia. The crowd even chanted “Putin, Putin.”
