Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) spoke for five minutes Wednesday in Congress against the Equality Act, which would ban discrimination against LGBTQ people under federal law. Greene said there should be no discrimination against anyone in America, but felt the landmark bill was “too much,” that it put “trans rights above women’s rights,” then quoted Genesis to stress that “God created us men and women.”
Then Greene tried to adjourn Congress, before what is expected to be a vote on Thursday. The move failed, but she was supported by her fellow Republican – revealing either their adoration of her, their attitude to LGBTQ equality, or perhaps both.
Greene hadn’t finished. Then, on Twitter, she launched a vicious personal attack on her colleague, Rep. Marie K. Newman (D-IL), who has a transgender daughter, telling her: “Your biological son has no place in them. my daughters’ toilets, locker rooms, and sports teams. “
