“It bothers me so much,” she said. “They treat me as if I’m some kind of crazy person, or like I have three horns coming out of my head.”
“They’re the ones that are crazy and they’re the ones that are so disconnected.”
She added that she thinks Democrats are “really scared of the American people.”

Greene is known for her belief in the long-debunked QAnon conspiracy theories claiming that the government was really in the control of a “deep state” cabal of pedophiles in opposition to Donald Trump, and “Q” is someone on the inside that needed help in bringing the “deep state” down.
Some other “theories” and beliefs that Greene has peddled on social media include those mass shootings such as the Parkland and Newtown massacres were “false flag” events, denial that the 9/11 terror attacks took place, that Black people “are held slaves to the Democratic Party,” that “space lasers” controlled by a Jews were the cause of many wildfires, and the QAnon precursor, Pizzagate.
Last February, she was also stripped of her committee assignments in Congress due to her conspiracy theories and support of violence against Democrats.
Greene is also virulently anti-trans and has said that fighting for transgender equality is “exactly” the same as what the Taliban is doing in Afghanistan.
She also introduced multiple motions to shut down Congress just before it debated the Equality Act, which would ban anti-LGBTQ discrimination. The motions didn’t pass, but they forced her colleagues to vote on the pointless motions and ate up over an hour of debate time to make the point that LGBTQ discrimination should remain legal. She called the Equality Act “DISGUSTING, IMMORAL, AND EVIL” in a statement.
Greene also put up a sign that said “There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE. ‘Trust The Science!’” in response to Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL) putting up a transgender flag outside of her office. Newman’s child is transgender.
