Marjorie Taylor Greene points to threat from left-wing extremists

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband made headlines last week when he became the victim of a brutal attack. Many blamed the crime on right-wing rhetoric despite Pelosi’s alleged attacker reportedly flying left-wing flags outside his home.

What has gotten far less coverage is the threatening rhetoric directed towards conservatives, a fact one Republican congresswoman recently sought to change. 

Congresswoman threatened with death, told to kill herself

“Since the shadow bans seem to be lifted on my Twitter account, retweeting for those ridiculously blaming me for what happened to Paul Pelosi,” Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said in a tweet on Friday.

“Death threats like these are consistent because of Twitter’s blue check mark insane left’s crazy conspiracy theories & lies about me,” she added.

Greene then retweeted a video clip of herself from last year in which she played a recording of threats that had been left with her answering service.

“Hi everyone, this is Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, and I would like to talk with you about death threats to members of Congress,” the lawmaker began.

“It is not okay, it is completely wrong for any member of Congress to receive death threats. I have been the most attacked freshman member of Congress, probably in United States history,” she continued.

Greene then went on to play a series of messages in which callers went on profanity-laced rants in which they threatened her with violence and told her to commit suicide.

Man accused of trying to assassinate Brett Kavanaugh

Greene has not been the only major figure in Washington to be the victim of intimidation, as Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was dogged by aggressive protesters after it was reported that he had voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Demonstrators regularly showed up at Kavanaugh’s house as well as outside the homes of other conservative justices.

What’s more, Fox News reported that a California man was charged with attempted murder after he was taken into custody at Kavanaugh’s home.

Police say 26-year-old Nicholas John Roske had a Glock 17 pistol, ammunition, a knife, zip ties, pepper spray, and duct tape, at the time of his arrest.
