Democrat Rages at Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor-Greene for Lecturing Others on Civility

On December 6, as Georgia's most outspoken and divisive Republican - Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene - shared her enthusiasm for another personally-motivated political bid to censure a House Democrat, she was the subject of a brutal attack by Democrat Jim McGovern of Massachusetts.

McGovern was clearly in no mood to be lectured by Georgia's MTG as she encouraged others within the House of Representatives to support the censuring of New York Democrat - Jamaal Bowman - for his alleged recent interference in proceedings in Congress.

Following remarks on the need for civility in government, McGovern took the microphone and issued a scathing attack on Georgia's Taylor-Greene.

According to the Massachusetts Democrat:

"It's really rich to get a lecture from someone about civility, who stood on this House floor and screamed and interrupted the President of the United States during the State of the Union."

The motion to censure Bowman advanced from the House of Representatives on December 6, likely pleasing Georgia's MTG. Whether her comments were influential on how her colleagues voted is unclear, but the angry remarks from McGovern about Georgia's Taylor-Greene have likely made an impact with other Democrats (and Republicans) who appear to be growing tired of her and her conduct.

Her actions during President Biden's State of the Union address earlier this year, as she shouted and heckled during his speech alongside her former ally (and now, enemy) Lauren Boebert, have been well documented. This episode, together with numerous other instances of poor behavior were cited by members of the GOP Freedom Caucus as they voted to eject MTG from their ranks earlier this year.

Ongoing beef between McGovern and MTG

Taylor-Greene is used to fighting long-running feuds with those around her, and apart from her friend-turned-enemy Lauren Boebert, and the Florida journalist and fan of the one-term former president Trump - Laura Loomer, MTG has also been a long-time adversary of Rep. McGovern.

Going back 2 years, the Massachusetts Democrat attempted to implore his colleagues that Taylor-Greene should be removed from her role in government, citing unacceptable comments and statements that she had made towards other politicians.

While such remarks were deemed sufficient to earn MTG a ban from Twitter (which was only revoked after the platform changed ownership), it wasn't apparently enough to remove her from Congress.

Democrats and Republicans may have had enough of MTG?

While the partisan objections to the actions of Republicans like Taylor-Greene are to be expected, there seem to be signs of her falling out of favor with her colleagues in the GOP too. Aside from her recently being removed from the Freedom Caucus, she has also seen numerous bills and proposals that she has championed, being defeated as Republicans turn their backs on her.

Her treatment at the hands of her fellow members of the GOP was enough for her to recently state that she shares the frustration of Republican voters that her party are becoming so ineffective at passing legislation. What seems to be missing from her analysis of the situation is any acknowledgement that she is part of the problem.

Do you think that Marjorie Taylor-Greene is doing a good job of serving the people of Georgia who elected her? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
