Greene Said She Believed In The QAnon Conspiracy. “Greene has posted the QAnon slogan on Facebook and on Twitter, the latter in response to a tweet defending the legitimacy of “Q” where she also wrote, “Trust the plan” (another catchphrase QAnon supporters use). She also has tweeted the QAnon-connected hashtag “#GreatAwakening” to far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. She has also appeared in a video where she discussed following QAnon, calling “Q” a “patriot” and “worth listening to,” and in a now-defunct website wrote favorably about the conspiracy theory.” [Media Matters]
Greene Is Also A 9/11 Truther. “In previously unreported remarks, Greene discussed the September 11 attacks and said that there was “the so-called plane that crashed into the Pentagon. It’s odd there’s never any evidence shown for a plane in the Pentagon.”” [Media Matters]
Greene Pushed Seth Rich Conspiracy Theory. “Republican House candidate and right-wing commentator Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is a QAnon supporter and a 9/11 conspiracy theorist, said in a recently unearthed video that the Obama administration had the violent MS-13 street gang murder Democratic staffer Seth Rich.
