Who needs a Robe?

Seriously, they aren't even pretending to be serious anymore. Last night freshman QOP member Marjorie Taylor-Green pulled a helluva stunt and proceeded to double down on hate.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene placed a sign outside her office mocking a House neighbor after the lawmaker, Marie Newman, hung a transgender pride flag next to her door in protest over the Georgia Republican's opposition to a LGBTQ rights bill.

Newman, D-Ill., who has a transgender daughter, recorded a video of herself putting up the flag Wednesday after she said Greene, whose office is across the hall, tried to block the Equality Act on the House floor.

Greene “tried to block the Equality Act because she believes prohibiting discrimination against trans Americans is ‘disgusting, immoral, and evil,’” Newman wrote in the tweet. “Thought we’d put up our Transgender flag so she can look at it every time she opens her door.”

In response, Greene tweeted her own video showing her putting up a large sign that says, “There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE. “Trust The Science.””




She didn't really block the Equality Act. Instead, an anti-science QOPer with no committee assignments went on the House floor to end yesterday's House session early -- so she could justify anti-trans bigotry. But what is perhaps more important is: it is not science.

As a pretty esteemed magazine puts it: Stop Using Phony Science to Justify Transphobia

It's abhorrent... and don't even get me started on the way President Biden's female and POC color cabinet nominees are being held to very different standards now that the former occupant is gone. Who needs a robe when you can just wear a red hate hat?
