Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Holocaust Remarks Draw Bipartisan Rebuke” – below is their description.
House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday denounced Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s comments comparing Covid-19 precautions to the Holocaust as “appalling,” and at least one Democrat is preparing a censure resolution to condemn the Georgia Republican.
Greene has compared requirements for masks and vaccines to the oppression and killing of Jews by the Nazis, the latest in a series of inflammatory statements she’s made since being elected in 2020. On Tuesday morning she compared a grocery store putting a vaccination logo on their name badges to Jews being forced to wear yellow Star of David patches under the Nazis.
“Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling,” McCarthy said in a statement Tuesday. “Let me be clear: the House Republican Conference condemns this language.”
Greene was broadly condemned by fellow Republicans, Democrats and Jewish groups. But McCarthy, of California, also faced criticism from Democrats for waiting until Tuesday to rebuke the Georgia freshman.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
