In what seems like a suspicious coincidence, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was the victim of two apparent “swatting” incidents at her home in Rome, Georgia this week.
For those who don’t know what “swatting” is, it’s a bogus call to 911 designed to get heavily-armed SWAT teams to show up, thinking there is an immediate, violent danger that needs to be neutralized. Think of someone placing a phony hostage situation call.
Obviously, this is something that can have potentially deadly consequences.
I am pretty sure swatting a member of Congress is a federal crime. If the DOJ was fair and honest Merrick Garland would be publicly calling for justice for Marjorie Taylor Greene. BUT we live in Joe Biden’s America so Garland will remain silent. Sad and scary times!

The latest occurrence took place around 3 a.m Thursday morning. A 911 call came into the Rome, Georgia police department apparently originating from a suicide hotline from an internet chat, stating that a man was possibly planning to shoot his family and himself.

The Republican Democrats Love To Hate
Marjorie Taylor Greene is a favorite target for Democrats and the left. She has been vilified by mainstream media as racist, anti-semitic, Islamophobic, homophobic, and any other kind of “phobic” you can think of. She was banned on Twitter for what Twitter claimed was “spreading misinformation.”
She had been thrown off all of her congressional committees and was fined thousands of dollars for refusing to go along with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s House floor mask mandate. When she did wear a mask, it said, “TRUMP WON,” referring to the 2020 presidential election.
Greene has also been portrayed by the media as divisive among her fellow Republicans. She explains it this way: “because I don’t back down and I stand my ground.”
Make it attempted murder and watch it stop.

Possible Motive For Swatting?
There could be some possible motivation for the swatting at Marjorie Taylor Greene’s home, though this is speculation on my part. Greene recently introduced a bill that would make it illegal to provide transgender operations, including puberty blockers and hormones to anyone 18-years and younger.
Recall that at least the second swatting incident mentioned “transgender.”
During a recent appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Greene explained the reason for the bill, “When it comes to ‘gender-affirming care,’ which is really child abuse, this is actually an assault and it’s child abuse. This practice should never happen. It’s so disgusting and appalling … this needs to be illegal.” Currently, the bill has 14 GOP cosponsors.
No word on any possible suspects in either swatting incident at Greene’s home.
