In a Facebook video titled “Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene addresses the nation,” the anti-LGBTQ Republican conspiracy theorist criticized the United States for aiding Ukraine and said there is no point in helping Ukrainians since they “they cannot possibly win.”

“It’s not our responsibility to give President Zelensky and the Ukrainian people false hope about a war they cannot win,” Greene said in the 11 minute and 28 second video, during which she also referred to President Biden as a “weak, dementia-ridden fossil.”

In reality, the Russian military has proven to be relatively weak.

Greene added that the United States has a “duty” to help resolve the conflict peacefully by brokering peace talks.

“We can do all this without sending a dime and without shipping bombs to further inflame a war whose outcome already seems certain.”

Through all of this, Greene claimed that as a Christian, she simply wants to prevent human suffering.

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.
