Marjorie Taylor Green has been widely mocked after blaming the US’s current tampon shortage on trans people.
The House Republican is no stranger to voicing out loud some of the dumbest shit you can imagine so it is, perhaps, no surprise to hear her blame a tampon shortage in the States, caused by a problem sourcing raw materials, on trans people – trans men specifically, which makes a change.
According to Taylor Greene, who represents the people of Georgia, the reason people who need tampons can’t get tampons is because of the amount of trans men using them.
Clearly, she says, this is another example of the ‘war on women’, which is interesting because the people fighting on her side of this so-called ‘war’ usually claim that trans men are actually women anyway, and infertile ones at that.
“There’s now a shortage of tampons, and that’s probably because men are buying tampons,” Taylor Greene said as she took part in a discussion about the transgender community on the Side Broadcasting Network, a right-wing outlet (obviously).
“They put tampons in men’s bathrooms. So this is the war on women.”
If ever there was an example of someone not having a clue about what they hate, then Marjorie Taylor Greene is it.
Taylor Greene is, of course, no stranger to stupid and/or harmful statements, having frequently embarrassed herself before. Well, most people would be embarrassed, she just seems to keep on clawing in those donations from people who are equally as dumb and filled with hate for those not like them.
A selection of some of Taylor Greene’s previous comments include:
- She accused Nancy Pelosi of leading the ‘Gazpacho police’.
- She harassed a teenager who had survived a school shooting, calling him a ‘coward’.
- She repeatedly indicated support for political violence and execution of top Democrats and FBI agents, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry.
- She created a White House petition to impeach Nancy Pelosi for treason because Pelosi did not vote to fund Donald Trump’s wall.
- She liked a tweet calling for Pelosi to be ‘put to death’.
- She posted on her candidate Facebook page in September 2020 an image of herself holding a gun alongside images of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and said that those who think this represented violence were ‘paranoid and ridiculous’.
- In 2020, she said, “The only way you get your freedoms back is it’s earned with the price of blood.”
- She has repeatedly backed Donald Trump’s lies about the US Election being stolen in 2020.
- She has peddled the ‘pizzagate’ conspiracy, amongst many others.
There is, of course, much more stupid, but I was getting depressed searching it all out because it’s so sad that somebody this dumb can be an elected official in any country.
What’s even more idiotic is that the politician was often spotted during the pandemic wearing a mask that said ‘censored’ despite being allowed to spew whatever hate-filled nonsense she sees fit to a wide audience on multiple platforms.
