Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she was personally offended at being called a white supremacist because that’s like being called the n-word
Marjorie Taylor Greene says when people like Jamaal Bowman call her a white supremacist, it’s “like calling a person a color the n-word”

Greene said, “Jamaal Bowman screamed at the top of his lungs. swearing. Calling me a terrible name, calling me a white supremacist, which I take great offense to. That’s like calling someone of color the n-word, which should never happen. Calling me a white supremacist is equivalent to that, and that is wrong.”
Rep. Greene later claimed that Rep. Bowman cursed at her and led the mob against her. She later claimed that Bowman approached her on the steps of the Capitol and was yelling and displaying physically aggressive mannerisms.
The video tells a different story than what Greene is trying to sell. The video shows Greene, unintimidated, sticking her finger in the New York congressman’s face and stirring up the confrontation.
Being called a white supremacist is not the same as the n-word. Never in US history has there been enslavement of white supremacists, treatment of them as property, and never have supremacists been beaten, raped, tortured and lynched.
If Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn’t want to be called a white supremacist, she needs to stop speaking at white supremacist events and start a white supremacist caucus in the House.
Claiming that white supremacist is equal to the n-word is one of the most racist things Greene could have as an affirmation of her beliefs.
