Marjorie Taylor Greene suddenly cares about LGBTQ+ rights when she can attack Muslims

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has built a reputation in her first two congressional terms as one of the most anti-LGBTQ+ politicians in the U.S.

But it seems that she is willing to stand up for LGBTQ+ rights when she has a chance to attack Muslim people.

She shared a video on X that showed a clip of a pro-Palestinian protester in D.C. chanting, “Let Gaza live!” and “Murderers go home!” The video was spliced with clips from the rightwing Real America’s Voice news network showing that the protestors were generally left-of-center and that some refused to answer when a conservative activist shouted, “Do you denounce Hamas?” at them, an act many consider Islamophobic.

“This ideology is dangerous on college campuses,” Greene wrote. “Young people do NOT know that an Islamic state will murder gays and will not tolerate gender lies, does not care about climate change or women’s rights or western culture, and will force everyone to convert to Islam or face death.”

The protestors were not attempting to convert Americans to Islam.

Greene is no friend to LGBTQ+ people. In her short three years in office, she introduced a bill to end gender-affirming care for trans youth and make it more difficult for adults to access, shut down the House twice and wasted everyone’s time in an attempt to stop Congress from passing the LGBTQ+ Equality Act, cosponsored a bill to ban trans kids from participating in school sports, shared anti-LGBTQ+ music with HIV jokes in it on social media, accused gay Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten Buttigieg of creeping on underage girls, hired an “ex-gay” intern and praised his claim that he changed from gay to straight as a “great story,” accused the parents of trans kids of turning their kids transgender as a fashion statement, and posted a transphobic sign outside her office door that she replaces each time it gets stolen or vandalized.
