Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene expressed her apologies on Monday over her latest remarks putting the safety house safety mask requirements and the Holocaust horrors in a comparison.
“I’m truly sorry for offending people with remarks about the Holocaust,” Greene said. “There’s no comparison and there never ever will be.”
Her statement is an unusual reaction of repentance by a Republican who is known to believe in conspiracy theories and to embrace arguments with progressive fellows.
She aired her apology after almost over several weeks on guesting on a right-leaning podcast and saying that the anti-requirements being implemented in the House is comparable to “a time and history where people were told to wear a gold star.” The representative said they were “put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. This is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about,” referring to the Democrat House Speaker.
Republican leaders reacted to the comments of Greene, describing her comparison between the two things as “appalling.”
Leaders of the GOP are unwilling to correct the representative who is known to be former President Donald Trump’s ally.
But Greene appeared remorseful as House members were back on Monday at the Capitol.
“Anti-Semitism is true hate,”Greene exclaimed. “And I saw that today at the Holocaust Museum.”
The Republican representative also once theorized that wildfires in California were triggered by “lasers or blue beams of light” being managed by the other bloc that is connected to an influential Jewish clan.
In her talks with the reporters on Monday, she claimed that she set foot on the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp when she was 19. The site during the World War II was Nazi-occupied Poland.
“It isn’t like I learned about it today,” she said regarding Holocaust, which left 6 million Jews and many others dead. “I went today because I thought it was important,” she said, and wanted to talk about it as she apologized.”
