Marjorie Taylor Greene, Thomas Massie Vote Against Mourning 50,000 Earthquake Victims in Turkey/Syri

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Thomas Massie Vote Against Mourning 50,000 Earthquake Victims in Turkey and Syria

Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Thomas Massie (R-KY) were the only two members of Congress on Monday to vote against a bipartisan resolution mourning the loss of life from a series of devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria this month.

----


“American families’ prayers and sincere condolences go to the people of Turkiye and Syria. To the brutal Assad regime and its backers — war criminal Putin, the authoritarian ayatollah in Iran — there will be a message: your diversion of humanitarian aid during an earthquake is despicable,” Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) said on the House floor Monday.

“The U.S. Congress stands united. We will never normalize with you. We will hold all those who attempt to normalize with you accountable, and we will not stop supporting the people of Syria to have a government they deserve based on democracy with rule of law, not authoritarians with rule of gun,” Wilson, who sponsored the resolution, added.

The resolution also condemned Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad for his efforts to “cynically exploit the disaster to evade international pressure and accountability.”

Massie, a staunch small government conservative who entered Congress in 2012 with the Tea Party movement, is nicknamed “Mr. No” by his colleagues and opposes most government activity.

Greene, who continues to push her “national divorce” proposal, continued raging against foreign spending on Monday, but received a large amount of criticism for voting against the resolution mourning the earthquake victims.

While trying to pull the Obamacare rug out from under everyone else.

I'm sure we'll hear of them flying their daughters out to the free states for abortions as well.

"Mr No" is a rat bastard and I can't despise him enough.

Goddamn parasite.
