Marjorie Taylor Greene Defends Attendance at White Nationalist Conference

Brad Dress, The Hill, February 26, 2022

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Saturday defended attending a white nationalist conference in Orlando, Fla., on Friday night, arguing that she was only there to “talk to the audience.”

In a recorded interview Saturday with CBS News correspondent Robert Costa, Greene said she did not personally know Nick Fuentes, a white nationalist leader who organized Friday night’s conference at the Orlando World Center Marriott.


Greene — whose personal account was banned from Twitter and who was stripped of two committee assignments last year for promoting violence against Democrats — spoke out against cancel culture at AFPAC on Friday night.


The Democratic National Committee (DNC) condemned Greene’s presence at the conference.

“Does Marjorie Taylor Greene know no shame?” DNC spokesman Ammar Moussa said in a statement

Moussa called for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to remove Greene from the caucus.


In her interview with Costa, Greene said she wanted to “talk to them about America First policies.”

“The reason why I went is to talk to the audience, just like I’ve talked to many different audiences,” she said. {snip}
