Protecting all freedoms, from faith to press, was Marjorie Taylor Greene’ told Whitfield County Republicans to cherish their freedom at Tuesday’s GOP meeting. Green is the Republican candidate for the 14th Congressional district.
“Freedom is why we have so many people trying to come into America illegally,” she said. “It’s not for socialism.”
She told the packed GOP office in Dalton that she has lived the proverbial American Dream, from being the first in her family to graduate from college, to opening her own business and making is successful, to taking over the family’s construction company.
“I”m thrilled to be a mother of three with the freedom to teach them from my faith and how to work hard,” she said.
She cautioned those in attendance that those freedoms were endangered by the Democratic party. She squares off against Democrat Kevin Van Ausdal on the Nov. 3 ballot.
Green New Deal and other Democrat
“If we don’t flip the house and keep the senate, they will push the Green New Deal through,” she said. “They are planning to do that fast.”
Greene referred to the 110-page document created by a joint Joe Biden-Bernie Sanders task force recommending “combating the climate crisis and pursuing environmental justice.”
“The Green New Deal will kill the oil industry,” Greene warned. “Look at California
She added that also high on Biden’s list, if elected, is taking the country back under the Paris Climate Accord and the Iran nuclear deal.
“We don’t like pollution, but more taxes won’t fix it,” she said. “And they want us to have a deal with a country that yells ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel.'”

“We need good guys with guns.”
She continued to tell supporters that the Second Amendment would be protected. She told them her high school was a gun-free zone, an effort pushed by then-Congressman Biden, when a fellow classmate, broke down after being bullied, and brought three guns to school and took control of the class.
“I was afraid and the government is not going to tell me how many guns or how much ammo I need to protect my family,” she said. “We didn’t have a good-guy with a gun in my school. We need good guys with guns.”
“Abortion is the most evil lie”
She took a more compassionate approach to women who have had abortion.
“I do not judge them. I believe when a woman makes that choice, she is in crisis,” she said. “I do judge our government for selling the most evil of lies to women in crisis. They are telling these women that a baby will get in the way and prevent them from accomplishing their goals and dreams. My kids are my reason why.”
She said the problem, besides government funding abortions and Planned Parenthood, was that abortions cost $400 compared to adoptions, which can range up to $40,000.
“We have to do better,” she said.
“Freedom of press is a gift.”
“Our freedom of press is a gift, a beautiful gift,” she said. But, there were some things she said that the conservatives were tired of. Speaking openly to a New York Times reporter at the event, she said “We don’t like the far left media. We’re also tired of the Russian collusion”
She stressed she was glad the reporter was there, but added “We know the mainstream media is the mouthpiece of the Democratic party.”
Green urged the media to understand that conservatives are able to read non-bias news, do their own research and judge the information given. “We are smart.”
In closing, Greene said the federal government needed to be reminded they were owned by the regular people.
“We need a congress that works for the people from both sides,” she said. “I’ll remind congress who they work for.”
