Marjorie Taylor Greene Raises Eyebrows with Comment About 'Winning' on January 6th

For a good, long time to come, America will find itself in the turbulent wake of the events of January 6th, 2021.

The unprecedented siege of the Capitol has been a vigorously debated subject in America over the course of the last 22 months, as some on the far right continue to suggest that it was nothing more than a protest – and a much-needed one at that.

On the other side of the coin, however, is the fact that some of those involved are now catching serious verdicts – including members of the Oath Keepers who’ve recently been saddled with “seditious conspiracy” convictions.

Now, with a statement that is sure to rile up the left side of the aisle, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is suggesting that she could have “won” January 6th if she were allowed to plan the action.

Greene spoke at the New York Young Republican Club in New York City on Saturday evening, where her speech largely consisted of blasting the Biden administration, calling the government “corrupt,” and re-affirming her opposition to supporting Ukraine’s defense against Russia. Her remarks eventually arrived at the subject of January 6th, where she scoffed at the past accusations that she gave Capitol tours to Donald Trump’s supporters before they wound up laying siege to the building.

“Then Jan. 6 happened. And next thing you know, I organized the whole thing, along with Steve Bannon,” Greene said. “I will tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I organized that, we would have won.”

Greene then took things a step further:

“Not to mention, it would’ve been armed.”

The Georgia Congresswoman has long been a bit of a political firebrand, but this latest bold statement may be considered a serious escalation in rhetoric by the liberal left who are always looking for new ways to vilify Greene.
