Republican legislatures this weekend have fired Attorney Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., For comparing the House factional authority to the Holocaust.

Republicans critical of Greene were among those who voted to oppose former President Donald Trump earlier this year or, moreover, voted to strip Greene of his committee duties.

Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., Recently ousted from the GOP leadership after she continued to oppose Trump's lies in the election, likened Greene's comparison to "crazy madness" in a tweet.

Attorney Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., Along with one of the three Republican House members voting for both Trump's indictment and depriving Greene of his committee's shares, wrote on Twitter that Greene's remarks were "absolutely Sick."

On Sunday, Attorney Peter Meijer, R-Mich., Told CNN's "State of the Union" that Greene's comments were "unsubstantiated."

"Any comparison to the Holocaust, there is no blame," he said. "This, I do not even have the words to describe how disappointing it is to see this frantic statement come together and play into the many protests we see in our society today."

Greene's latest trafficking is in response to comments he made during an appearance last week in "The Water Cooler and David Brody." In the interview, Greene lamented Brody's confession of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to retain the right to hide her head in the House out of concern for many GOP members who may not be vaccinated.

Congress will not meet Biden's deadline for a bill to change Floyd's police force. Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.

"The woman is mentally ill," Greene told Pelosi, D-Calif. "You know, we can look back to a time in history when people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated as second-class citizens - so much so that they were put on trains and taken to power chambers in Nazi Germany and this is exactly the kind of abuse Nancy Pelosi was talking about."

He was referring to the millions of Jews who were forced to wear the Star of David in their robes and sent to concentration camps during World War II. This year's poll showed an increase in anti-apartheid sentiment around the world and a lack of awareness among adults under the age of 40 about the Holocaust, with 11 percent believing it was caused by Jewish people.

Last week, a CNN poll found that less than half of House Republicans would say they were vaccinated, compared to 100 percent of House Democrats. Greene recently said that Pelosi "will not force her" to be vaccinated.

Among other things, the American Jewish Congress has urged Greene to apologize and retract his remarks, saying "such comparisons undermine the Holocaust and tarnish American politics." Change.org's request that the lower house leader, Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Be expelled from Congress has received more than 11,000 signatures since Sunday morning.

Greene has been widely criticized for his earlier propaganda tactics such as QAnon and for appearing to condone violence against Pelosi before seeking a position. Some of those positions have led Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., To criticize him for spreading “false lies” and the Democratic Alliance House to remove him from committees in February in a vote supported by 11 Republicans.
