Greene Complains About Focus on White Supremacists After Buffalo Shooting

Fatma Khaled, Newsweek, May 22, 2022

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia recently complained about the focus on white supremacists and suggested that America should focus on other issues.

“Jerrold Nadler was on the House floor and he was talking about white supremacy,” she said during an appearance on Real America’s Voice, Raw Story reported on Sunday.

Greene was referring to Democratic New York Representative Jerrold Nadler’s remarks on the House floor on May 18 where he called for a stricter response to hate crimes.

“And he [Nadler] was bringing up the terrible shooting that happened in [Buffalo] New York, but totally ignoring the shooting that happened in California that I think involved an Asian man that was the shooter,” she added in an apparent reference to the California church shooting in Laguna Woods last week that left one dead and 5 others injured. Authorities said that the suspect is an “Asian man in his 60s” who was later identified as David Wenwei Chou.


{snip} Greene claimed that other shooting incidents that involved Black suspects, including the Brooklyn subway shooting, didn’t receive the same attention.


“We should be more concerned about the illegal invasion at the border, the crime happening every single day on our streets, especially in cities like Chicago. We should go after criminals that break the law and not pursue people based on their skin color and how they vote. But that’s what the Democrats want to do,” she continued.
