Democratic congressman drops censure resolution against Marjorie Taylor Greene

Washington Democratic Congressman Brad Schneider of Illinois said he will not proceed with a resolution to censure Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia for comments she made about the Holocaust.

Schneider said in a statement Tuesday he decided not to introduce his measure after Greene said she visited the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and apologized for the remarks.

"I believe that words matter and that they have consequences," the Illinois Democrat said in a statement. "Elected officials, and especially members of Congress, have a great responsibility to carefully measure our words and be as precise as possible when we communicate. Sometimes we may stumble in our message. When we do, we should be given the chance to clarify exactly what we intended to say and promptly set the record straight."

Schneider indicated as recently as Monday he was prepared to introduce his censure resolution against Greene, tweeting then that when the Georgia congresswoman "repeatedly compared the US COVID-response and the Holocaust, she dishonored the millions of lives lost in WWII and the Shoah. She has forgotten America's fight against the Nazi menace."

1. Bad move, Schneider. You're only encouraging her.

This is the sort of wussy-assed move that Republicans dream about---Democrats wimping out and letting the opposition get away with pretty much anything. It happens way too often...

4. She's damaged her own reputation. Let it ferment for 2022.

There are bigger fish to fry.

5. Forget about it...until the next time?

That witch will be spouting hate again as soon as she is in front of another batch of Trumpettes. They love her for it.

6. Another....

missed opportunity to hold Major Traitor Greene accountable for her despicable actions and establish a precedent for similar treatment of GQP scumbags in the future. Having no tangible consequences or the imposition of punitive measures only further emboldens them, and it makes them believe that they can act with absolute impunity whenever they so please.
