Everytown urges Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to resign over newly uncovered remarks

Everytown for Gun Safety is again pushing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) to resign following reports that she expressed support for violence against Democrats before running for Congress.

The gun control advocacy group, along with its grassroots networks Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action, cited Facebook exchanges from 2018 and 2019 that were reported by CNN's KFile on Tuesday.

The investigation found a post from January 2019 in which Greene liked a comment saying that “a bullet to the head would be quicker” to remove House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy Pelosi Pelosi says she's giving Senate more time on Jan. 6 commission Ocasio-Cortez, Gillibrand and Moulton call for more high-speed rail funding in infrastructure package Pelosi picks Democrats for special panel tackling inequality MORE (D-Calif.).

“Unhinged conspiracy theorists and gun extremists like Rep. Greene have no place in the People’s House,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. “She’s putting lives in danger and will continue to do so for as long as she’s in office.”

CNN also uncovered a post from April 2018 about the Iran nuclear deal, in which a commenter asked, “Now do we get to hang them? Meaning H&O?” in reference to former President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonHillary Clinton backs Shontel Brown in Ohio congressional race Hillary Clinton: Casting doubt on 2020 election is 'doing Putin's work' Progressives rave over Harrison's start at DNC MORE.

Greene reportedly replied, “Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off.”

In response to the CNN investigation, Greene posted to Twitter, “Fake News CNN is writing yet another hit piece on me focused on my time before running for political office.” She vowed to not “back down.”

Everytown first called for Greene to resign last week following allegations that she was involved in Facebook exchanges that denied school shootings.

The group cited a Media Matters article that uncovered exchanges from 2018 in which Greene allegedly agreed that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting were not real or not done by the people arrested for them.
