From trying to impeach Biden to harassing people, Marjorie Taylor Greene is back at it again

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 12: Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) arrives to the Hyatt Regency hotel on Capitol Hill on November 12, 2020 in Washington, DC. Greene will be the first person elected to Congress to openly support the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Georgia's 14th Congressional District Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R), a QAnon enthusiast, hasn't wavered from her promise at the Trump impeachment hearing— the promise to present articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden.

Apparently, she went ahead and filed articles of impeachment against him. Funny enough, her swift action against him comes right in the midst of advocacy groups urging for her resignation.

On Thursday, Greene posted a video to Twitter, saying, "I just filed Articles of Impeachment on President Joe Biden, we'll see how this goes."

She also posted screenshots of the articles of impeachment against Biden to Twitter as well, claiming that he should be removed from office based on "enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors, by allowing his son to influence the domestic policy of a foreign nation and accept various benefits — including financial compensation — from foreign nationals in exchange for certain favors."

Why must everything be posted to social media?

Anyways, Greene, of course, is not the only person to want impeachment against Biden. Some right-wing Republicans also claim that Biden used his platform to promote his son Hunter's business endeavors. But according to The New York Times, when the GOP actually looked into the matter, there was no sound evidence of any wrongdoing. That's right; there was no wrongdoing.

The wave of confusion that came over me when I saw it was something else.

In 2019, the FBI and federal prosecutors issued a subpoena for a laptop and hard drive alleged to be Hunter Biden's. Still, once examined, they realized that there was nothing to suggest money laundering. Naturally, many of Greene's claims are based on dubious allegations.

Moreover, it seems to me that Greene is using the impeachment filing as a way to promote her message and fundraise. This doesn't really come as a surprise given what appears to be QAnon leaders' money is the motivation attitude.

Greene asked supporters to sign petitions and donate to push the impeachment, yet according to Business Insider, it says that the money will go to the Green for Congress. So, where is the money actually going?

The congresswoman also faced opposition from gun advocacy groups calling for her resignation after Media Matters for America uncovered appalling statements that Greene made in a 2018 Facebook post about the Parkland school shooting. Long story short, she believed the shooting was fake, adding more insult to injury to people's experiences within the country. There have also been more videos to surface of her following and harassing gun control activist David Hogg.

More advocacy groups such as Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety are urging Greene's resignation. The NAACP also created a petition after the January 6 Capitol Hill riots demanding that lawmakers resign, including Green, who still objects to the 2020 presidential election results, despite the televised atrocities of that day.

What's the moral of the story here? The ability to refrain from using social media to spew baseless and often offensive claims to a country you serve.

I am psychologist at the University of Sussex whose work is focused on supporting and researching parents - it has become clear to me that we need to worker harder to support the mental health of fathers. Here's why.

Children have a place on the frontlines of the culture wars

What Should We Do When the Culture Wars Invade Our Children’s Lives?

Children have a place on the frontlines of the culture wars

You know when there’s a controversy whether to include both sides to the Holocaust in a Texas school district, the culture wars have once again invaded the children’s lives. Similarly, in Southern Pennsylvania, books by people of color were banned (or per the official Central York School statement: “frozen” for an entire year.)

These discussions by the school boards are impacted by the bills passed in government, as in the case of House Bill 3979 requiring public school teachers to present various points of view when teaching about current events and social issues. Often, the impulse to clutch pearls and to “think of the children” is a rhetorical device to further political causes. As the larger climate in a racialized society such as the United States grapple with a history of slavery and the fight for racial justice--with the most current iteration being the black lives matter protests in the summer of 2020--what the children learn in schools have become a new battleground for those who land on opposing sides of this culture war.
