Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) not only shared a report showing that her threats toward other members of the House of Representatives have had drastic, rippling effects, but she pledged that the threats “will continue” as long as they choose to support anything supported by President Joe Biden.

“All death threats should be investigated,” she said in a thread of tweets sharing reporting that her threats have led to death threats against members of Congress and their employees. “However, the calls will continue and primaries will ensue. Republicans in the House and the Senate need to learn a lesson.”

Unlike Greene, most of the country celebrated the passage of the infrastructure bill as a victory for all Americans, but especially President Biden and Democrats.

Greene, however, went on a Twitter tirade deriding the 13 Republicans who voted in favor of the bipartisan deal. She called them “#Traitors” who “Just voted to help Biden screw America.”

She invoked the fact that six progressive Democrats voted against the bill, for largely procedural reasons, to support her argument that the “fake” infrastructure plan is part of Biden’s “Communist takeover.” She then published the names and office numbers of the GOP Congressmembers and pledged they will “feel the anger of the GOP voter” over it.

Salon Magazine published an article detailing the fact that people are calling the offices of the 13 lawmakers with “menacing” messages, as first reported by the New York TimesSalon declared that the threats posed by Greene against her colleagues had “worked.”

Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) appeared on CNN this week, bringing audio of one of the calls where the caller said, “You’re a fucking piece of shit traitor. I hope you die.”

“I have a colleague, as you know, that put out the phone numbers of the 13 of us that voted that way,” Upton said to Anderson Cooper. “I’d be glad to defend that vote. We’ve been working really since last spring on a bipartisan bill.”

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) had a caller tell his office that he should slit his wrists and “rot in hell.” Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE)’s office received a call pledging that the Congressman would slip and fall down a staircase.

This came as the same week as Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) posted a video depicting an animated version of himself murdering his colleague, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

In defense of her attack on her Republican colleagues, Greene called Ocasio-Cortez and the five other Democrats that voted against the bill “brave,” even though they voted against it largely for procedural reasons, as they supported removed portions of the legislation and wanted to ensure its passing with another bill backed by President Biden.

Greene further said, “While the Democrat Communist Party is wielding it’s authoritarian power over the Great People of America, I will continue to lead the People to hold Republicans accountable until they figure out how to actually unite and put into action the America First words they say on TV.”

She did not deny Salon‘s reporting or the fact that they said her threats worked, but she did say that she gets “nasty calls, death threats & wishes all the time” from “the deranged left.”

“I get great calls from Republicans,” she boasted.

Her next tweet was then directed at Kinzinger, one of the Congressmen who received a death threat, and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY). Greene told them to “bow” to their “Queen,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, because they are leading the January 6 committee.

Last month, planners of the Jan 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol named Greene as a co-conspirator in the attack on the seat of government.

The anonymous sources said that they participated in “dozens” of planning sessions to stop President Joe Biden’s 2020 election win from being certified and said that even elected officials talked with them leading up to the attack on the Capitol that resulted in five deaths.

“I remember Marjorie Taylor Greene specifically,” one planner said. “I remember talking to probably close to a dozen other members at one point or another or their staffs.”

They named names, including Greene, Gosar, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ).
