Pelosi Says Greene ‘Should Stop Talking’

Path 27

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) believes Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) should “stop talking” after comparing COVID-19 restrictions to the Holocaust.

When asked for her reaction to Greene’s comparison of Pelosi’s mask mandate to the Holocaust, Pelosi replied, “It’s so beyond reprehensible. It has no place in our country.”

She added, “I think she should stop talking.”

In a tweet on Tuesday, Greene said she never compared the mandate to the Holocaust, adding, “Only the discrimination against Jews in early Nazi years. Stop feeding into the left wing media attacks on me.”

She continued, “Everyone should be concerned about the squads support for terrorists and discrimination against unvaxxed people. Why aren’t they?”

In an earlier tweet, Greene claimed, “Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi’s forced Jewish people to wear a gold star.”

Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hammill issued a statement blasting House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for failing to respond to Greene’s remarks sooner.

“Leader McCarthy waited days to even issue a statement in response to one of his members demeaning the Holocaust, and he clearly intends to continue to welcome Marjorie Taylor Greene in the GOP and shield her from any real consequence or accountability for her antisemitism,’ Hammill wrote.

He added, “Leader McCarthy’s silence has spoken volumes about his allegiance to the most extreme elements of the GOP Conference.”

In a statement on Tuesday, McCarthy called Greene’s remarks “wrong,” explaining, “Her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling. The Holocaust is the greatest atrocity committed in history. The fact that this needs to be stated today is deeply troubling.”

He continued, “At a time when the Jewish people face increased violence and threats, anti-Semitism is on the rise in the Democrat Party and is completely ignored by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Americans must stand together to defeat anti-Semitism and any attempt to diminish the history of the Holocaust. Let me be clear: the House Republican Conference condemns this language.”
