Mary Miller and Marjorie Taylor Greene Do Not Represent Illinois
Illinois Republicans Should Condemn Miller, Green for Hateful Speech
Springfield, IL – Fringe Illinois Republican Congresswoman Mary Miller welcomed conspiracy theorist and hate speech provocateur Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene to Illinois this week. Today, Abby Witt, Executive Director for the Democratic Party of Illinois, and Dan Kovats, Executive Director for the Illinois Democratic County Chairs Association, released the following statement:
“Mary Miller and Marjorie Taylor Greene are two peas in a pod blindly following their dear failed leader Donald Trump. They voted against honoring the police officers who protected them and others from the January 6 failed insurrection instigated by Trump. Miller and Greene both purposely spew hate concerning statements referencing Hitler, the Holocaust, and Nazi “Brown Shirts” into their remarks.”
“The Miller and Greene show are now fundraising together in Illinois, continuing their grift and conspiracy theory partnership. If they are the Republican Party, they don’t represent the majority of middle Americans and they don’t belong in Congress spewing hate and division.”
Mary Miller quoted Hitler the day before the failed insurrection. Marjorie Taylor Greene, again, made another Nazi-era reference regarding the push to vaccinate more Americans — her second comment in months.
