Top Democrat Rep blasted for making this ridiculous claim

Democrats in Congress are used to lying through their teeth. But rarely do they get dragged like this one just did.

And a top Democrat Rep was just blasted for making this ridiculous claim.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene slammed far-left Rep. Cori Bush on Tuesday for advocating for “reparations” while voting to send billions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine.

“The Declaration of Independence was written by enslavers and didn’t recognize Black people as human. Today is a great day to demand Reparations Now,” Bush (D-Mo.) tweeted Tuesday with a black fist emoji.

Greene (R-GA) replied to her colleague by claiming that the progressive “Squad” politician was a hypocrite because she supported assistance for Ukraine’s military in its fight against invading Russian soldiers.

In addition to attacking Bush, the Georgia Republican also criticized Ukraine’s military forces, referring to their members as Nazis.

“Just stop. You voted to send $113 Billion to the white people and white Nazi army of Ukraine,” Greene tweet Tuesday.

Greene made a similar assertion in a tweet directed at Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky last week.

“Somehow this makes so much sense from the actor wearing army green everyday, fully funded by U.S. warmongers, and who just recently canceled elections, controls his state media, and has a Nazi army,” Greene said of a video showing Zelensky meeting with climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

Greene does not specify whether the term “Nazi army” refers to the entire Ukrainian military or just specific units.

Though, it’s important to keep in mind that even Left-leaning news outlets highlighted the presence of neo-Nazis in certain Ukrainian units before it became fashionable to support funding Ukraine’s military:

Greene’s office did not respond to a request for comment from The Washington Post.

Greene supports Rep. Matt Gaetz’s (R-FL) Ukraine Fatigue Resolution, which asks for a stop to all US military and financial aid to Ukraine and the exploration of a peace accord with Russia.

The issue of continued US military aid to Ukraine has sparked a schism within the Republican Party, with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and many of his followers supporting it, while other far-right Republicans have spoken out against further US taxpayer money for Ukraine’s military.
