Kevin McCarthy and Ben Shapiro Join in with Liberals to Attack MTG for ‘Pro-Health Freedom’ Tweets

House minority leader, Kevin McCarthy and Libertarian political commentator, Ben Shapiro have teamed up with liberals to attack Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA) over her recent “pro-health freedom” tweets. Congresswoman Greene posted a tweet this morning drawing a connection between mandatory vaccine identification cards and Nazi forcing of Jewish people to identify themselves with a gold star.

Greene’s tweet linked an article detailing how a grocery store in Tennessee will begin putting vaccination logo stickers on employees that have received the Covid-19 vaccination. Any employees or customers that have not been vaccinated will be required to wear facial coverings and encouraged to utilize hand sanitizer, cart wipes and cleaning products.

In a second tweet, Greene strengthened her narrative by posting an article detailing how University of Virginia students that are not vaccinated will be prohibited from in-person classes and on campus entirely.

Within three hours of her tweets, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy condemned Greene’s tweet, calling her comments “appalling” and released a full statement on his website.

McCarthy’s statement reads as follows: “Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling. The Holocaust is the greatest atrocity committed in history. The fact that this needs to be stated today is deeply troubling. At a time when the Jewish people face increased violence and threats, anti-Semitism is on the rise in the Democrat Party and is completely ignored by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Americans must stand together to defeat anti-Semitism and any attempt to diminish the history of the Holocaust. Let me be clear: the House Republican Conference condemns this language.”

This is not the first incident in which McCarthy has disavowed Greene’s actions. In mid-April, Congresswoman Greene and Congressman Paul Gosar led a movement to begin a pro-Trump America First Caucus. More details can be found on McCarthy’s anti-Trump sentiments here.

In a since deleted tweet, Greene voiced her support for a twitter account calling McCarthy a “moron” and a “feckless c**t” while simultaneously acknowledging Greene’s support for Israel.

In addition to McCarthy, political commentator, Ben Shapiro put Greene on blast. Shapiro called Greene’s tweet “demented nonsense” and claimed that her comparison was “insulting and insane”.

Shapiro has voiced his support for federally mandated vaccines which may have motivated him to attack Greene. The National File reported on this in March:

During the March 18 episode of his radio show, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro made the case for mandatory vaccination. When a caller asked Shapiro about the use of fetal baby DNA, and about the vaccine companies not having any liability and having access to a special government-sponsored payout system for those who sustain critical injuries or die because of vaccines, Shapiro made the case for mandating them anyway.

Shapiro claimed that personal liberty only counts when it comes to vaccines if the vaccine is simply designed to protect you from a disease, and not to achieve herd immunity. “One, you have to determine that there are differences in my opinion with regard to vaccines that are directly designed to prevent you from getting a disease, and ones that rely on herd immunity in order to prevent others from getting a disease,” said Shapiro.

Greene responded to Shapiro’s tweet and accused him of “feeding into the left wing media attacks on me”.

Shapiro has yet to respond to Greene’s tweet. Additionally, Greene reminded all 410,000 of her followers that she is pro-Israel and fighting for peace in the Middle East by linking video of her press conference last week. She spoke behind a podium with the phrase, “STAND WITH ISRAEL” inscribed on it and described Israel as our ally while calling out the overwhelming Democratic support for Hamas led by AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Cori Bush.
