Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene cited the Declaration of Independence to defend the attack on the Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters.
“Jan. 6 was just a riot,” Greene said, during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s ‘War Room’ podcast.
“If you think about what our Declaration of Independence says, it says to overthrow tyrants,” Greene continued in defense of the riot. “There is a clear difference between Jan. 6 and the Marxist, Communist revolution, the Antifa, BLM, Democrat ground troops waged on the American people in 2020.”
Greene also told Bannon that the “lies of Blue Anon” and “the Democrat media” are the real danger to the country. They would “do anything to cause someone like me to be killed, or someone like you, Steve, to be killed” because of the “Democrat lies about us and about January 6th,” Greene said.
She also claim that this ‘Blue Anon’ was spreading lies about Republicans and the “innocent people that were at the Capitol on Jan. 6.”
