Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) went on a twisted rant at Donald Trumpâ€™s rally in Georgia Saturday telling Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten, to â€œstay out of our girls bathrooms.â€
â€œYou know what?â€ Greene asked the crowd in Commerce, starting off her bigoted rant. â€Pete Buttigieg can take his electric vehicles and his bicycle, and he and his husband can stay out of our girls bathrooms. Yup.â€
While Greeneâ€™s rant was clearly motivated by hate, it is unclear which bigoted conspiracy theory she was drawing on in her attack of the Transportation Secretary and his husband, who are gay.
Greene has been a vocal opponent of transgender people using the bathroom according to their gender identity. Pete Buttigieg is not transgender, though that didnâ€™t seem to stop Greene from lumping him into her general anti-LGBTQ comments.
Greene also attacked collegiate swimmer Lia Thomas, who is a trans woman, misgendering her while she yelled.
In addition, Greene took the opportunity to bash Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as â€œthe Death Starâ€ from the â€œStar Warsâ€ franchise. But she bungled her sci fi references. Abrams just had a cameo in the Season 4 finale of â€œStar Trek: Discovery.â€
Greene also warned that sheâ€™s â€œcomingâ€ for Georgia voters who have filed a complaint to block her reelection because of her role in last yearâ€™s insurrection, which they argue disqualifies her. Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, passed after the Civil War, states that no person may hold political office who has â€œengaged in insurrection or rebellionâ€ or â€œgiven aid or comfortâ€ to the nationâ€™s enemies.
