Funding for Ukraine and Israel has been hotly contested in Congress. 

For Marjorie Traitor Greene, it’s just fodder for trolling. 

As two separate supplemental aid packages make their way through the House, Greene has proposed a series of outlandish amendments to both bills. 

For a measure on Ukrainian military aid, Greene submitted amendments requiring members who vote for the aid to “conscript in the Ukrainian army,” and directing President Joe Biden to withdraw from NATO.

In the below video, MT Greene gets deservedly humiliated by a scholar and expert on Ukraine, Nazis, and Fascists. 

If Greene had any self-awareness (she doesn't -- stupid people rarely do), she'd take a lesson from this spanking she got from Dr. Timothy Snyder, (the Richard C. Levin Professor of History at Yale University and a permanent fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna. He speaks five and reads ten European languages), and not speak again on subjects she knows nothing about:

Chaos is the game. Complete and utter chaos is the motivation/intention.

This hair brained Georgia idiot and the MAGA crowd is the stuff of former failed powers.

Now, America had its very own destructive forces percolating within.

May the cancer be rooted out and die the death it deserves.

Greene is basically doing the Ann Coulter schtick -- hogging the center of attention by saying outrageous things. The problem with this behavior is that to stay effective, it has to escalate continuously, until you end up in the realm of ridiculous self-parody.

The bigger problem, of course, is that the security of two fellow democracies, and the credibility of our own country, is on the line here, and is being put at risk by the performative antics of extremists.

JFC... She couldn't signal she was under Putin's control more clearly if she rode shirtless into Congress on a horse.

JoeBama "Truth 101" Kelly said...

I saw that republican Congressman Lawler labeled MTG, Gaetz and a few others useful idiots. If nothing else it is good to see a republican say something true for a change.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Les, Infidel753, JoeBama, bluzdude

Yes, as Infidel753 stated, MT Greene is performative like Anne Coulter, only not very bright.

She's an example of the Dunning-Kruger effect:

"The Dunning–Kruger effect is the thesis that those who are incompetent in a given area tend to be ignorant of their incompetence, i.e., they lack the metacognitive ability to become aware of their incompetence. This definition lends itself to a simple explanation of the effect: incompetence often includes being unable to tell the difference between competence and incompetence. For this reason, it is difficult for the incompetent to recognize their incompetence."

The poor woman doesn't know how incompetent she is. (And, apparently, neither do the folks who admire and vote for her.

Skin-in-the-Game. It should be a requirement for all the (D) and (R) virtue signallers.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Weirdos like MT Greene seem to me to be what is known as "waste heat:" contributing to the thermodynamic entropy of the universe.

"The first law of thermodynamics says that energy is always conserved. The total energy never changes. It cannot be increased nor decreased in quantity.

However, energy usually starts as high quality energy, and can be degraded to become almost useless energy called “waste heat”. When energy is degraded, thermodynamic entropy rises. The second law of thermodynamics says that entropy always rises."

Les Carpenter said...

Hmm, perhaps actual, non theistic spirituality (spiritual energy) is the antidote to "wastei heat".

I find the gyrations some people go through in the attempt to explain and or justify the political idiocy of folks like MTG and much of MAGA to be nothing more than fearful emotional energy on steriods.

Joe Conservative said...

Dr. Timothy Snyder ranks right up there with Barbra Streisand, Sean Penn, Imagine Dragons, and other such luminaries....


Dave Miller said...

-FJ... of course MTG is a woman after your own heart. She's an adulteress, liar, and idiot. Perfect for someone in your state of delusion.

I appreciate my friend from the right, good old Joe C. attempting to channel William Buckley with a ridiculous comment in hopes someone will think it a great bit of prose and wisdom. His adding of the "BWAH!" at the end to give it more impact with the deluded fools he desperately tries to hold himself up as a hero to may well be impressed. My advice is he get in touch with the misguided idiot and noted warmonger John Bolton and tell him to add a "BWAH!" at the end of his statements as well. This may help in his quest to get God to speed up the rapture. PSHAW!

Les Carpenter said...

The "rapture" can occur at anytime and for anyone when their own mind is liberated from the obscurations, delusions, and forced conditioning society subjects everyone to.

BB-Idaho said...

I'm guessing that should Trump keel over from obesity, morbid loquaciousness, or getting lost cheating in a sand trap at one of his courses, MTG would be the next go-to for Fearless Leader of the rump of the GOP. Did she do Stormy Daniels? Does she understand Steven the
Georgia 14th district a real place? Doesshe share Trump's tanning booth? Just wondering.

Dave Miller said...

BB... I'm thinking the MAGA GOP is tiring of MTG. Even the fever swamp of the Mothership has tossed her overboard.

Next up will be another MAGA guy, more personable but with the same policies.

And the MAGA right will celebrate as they win against the progressive Dems who themselves will demand purity of extreme leftist belief to get support.

Meanwhile the sane middle will be left out in the cold.

Dave Dubya said...

Aww, Kremlin agent -FJ/JC flushes and swoons over "MTG, a woman after my own heart... :)".


And we can practically see his arousal over MTG's stroking his and Putin's favorite erogenous zone, directing President Joe Biden to withdraw from NATO.

Just those words, "directing President Joe Biden to withdraw from NATO", stir his pride for Mother Russia and affirm his loyalty to Putin.

Dave Dubya said...

We know our Kremlin agent would also find this woman after his own heart.

Trump supporter: “I think that people are just ridiculous that they think that Putin’s just such this enemy. He isn’t doing anything; he just wants back what was his.”

MSNBC reporter: “But he invaded Ukraine, killing thousands of people”

Trump supporter: “That's fine with me.”

The reptilian indifference to human suffering and lost lives is a dominant feature of authoritarian sociopaths like MTG, Trump, Putin and Kremlin agent -FJ/JC.

Note to -FJ:
Have you surrendered your space laser to MTG yet? It's the least you could do.

Dave Miller said...

Dave, Shaw, Les, JoeBama et al... these folks, the MTG's, the Gaetz crowd, the Jim Jordans in addition to many of the "conservatives" who post here, are just not serious people.

They want to believe it to be so, but their words say otherwise.

All of them are the far right fringe, much worse than the far left fringe. And before you righties even try, I'll admit Stacy Abrams and even HRC cried foul after losing their most recent elections. So did Al Gore, and probably more.

But here's the difference... none of them summoned a mob of armed people to attack the very government they were running to lead.

None of them.

There simply is no far left fringe calling for people to act as vigilantes , as Senator Tom Cotton did last week when he say don't wait for the police to show up, take the law into your own hands, and kill people if they are blocking your roads.

That gives new meaning to "stand your ground."

So pay them no attention, because they are worthy of it.

Dave Miller said...

"Not worthy of it"

Les Carpenter said...

They are all acting like frightened people who are losing everything they cherish. Their response is what we see regularly. Lying, conspiracies, bullying, aligning with authoritarians, othering all not of their cult, etc.

America is no longer the America that defeated the Nazi's and Imperial Japan. Nor the America that was largely responsible for the collapse of the USSR.

We are slowly evolving into a nation that a very large number of folks now support the very things we fought and died to insure would never happen here.

But, America's divide it's far from ending. It likely is going to grow wider and more threatening and dangerous.

Dave Dubya said...

Dave M,

I understand they are idiots and buffoons on camera, but I hesitate to say they are "not serious".

The MAGA cultists and their leader say stupid things and make fools of themselves, but they are serious in their hate, yearning, and criminal actions toward seizing authoritarian white nationalist minority rule.

We can, and should, mock them and laugh at their willful ignorance and stupidity, but we should also take their threat to our republic very seriously.

Those who praise and regurgitate Putin should be taken as seriously as those who praise and regurgitate Hitler.

"Hitler did a lot of good things". This guy is trying to take power and purge our government of anyone not loyal to him, and he has a good chance to succeed if enough Americans don't take him seriously.

Dave Miller said...

I've only ever seen one commenter around here who chooses to not write God or Yahweh and instead goes with G-D or YHWH and it's always been -FJ or one of his many sock puppet personalities.

Until I saw the comment by "Anonymous" today.

Is Anonymous really just "-FJ" in a new form?

National Enquirer minds want to know...

Dave Dubya said...

Dave M,
I'm seeing G-D as two words in this case.

I had a statcounter at T101 years ago. There were dozens of monikers posing as righties and they all traced back to one IP address out of Long Beach NY. Les and I discussed this years ago, They were like a Mongol horde kicking up dust to create the illusion of large numbers. I kind of felt sad for someone whose life is so pathetic they had to create all these fake things to have friends.
