Marjorie Taylor Greene Forces Vote on Tlaib Censure

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) introduced a resolution Thursday censurating Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) for alleged “antisemitic activities” following the deadly attack by Hamas on Israel on Oct. 7.

Axios reported the measure had been introduced as a privileged resolution, meaning it would have to be voted upon by next week.

Greene, a member of Congress at the time of her statement on Thursday, said that such behavior by a congresswoman is “inacceptable” and does not reflect what America stands for.

The office of the new House Speaker Mike Johnson did not indicate immediately when a vote will be held on Greene’s resolution.

Tlaib described the resolution as “deeply Islamophobic”, “unhinged”, and that it “attacks peaceful Jewish Anti-War Advocates.”

In a press release, she said: “I’m proud to stand with Jewish peace activists calling for a cessation of violence and a ceasefire.” “I won’t be intimidated, I won’t be dehumanized and I won’t be silenced,” she said in a statement.

The resolution accuses Tlaib “of leading an insurrection in the United States Capitol Complex,” for speaking to protesters last week at the Cannon Office Building who demanded that lawmakers pass a Resolution calling for the U.S. brokering a ceasefire in the Israel/Hamas conflict.

While thousands of protesters gathered outside, hundreds gathered in the rotunda of the federal building, waving banners and chanting “Cease-fire Now!” Over 300 protesters were arrested.

The measure accuses Tlaib as well of engaging in antisemitic activities and “sympathizing” with terrorist groups, citing anti-Israel remarks that date back to 2019, and her recent criticisms of the U.S. supplying military aid to Israel.

Axios reported that Becca Balint’s office confirmed the move.

Balint introduced the resolution to the Senate in July, but did not force a vote due to fears on both sides about tensions escalating.

At a Thursday press conference, House Minority leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) said: “If the House decides to go down the censure road, that should be right at top of the list.”

Greene is said to have been involved in events that led up to the attack on the U.S. Capitol Building, which occurred on January 6, 2021.

According to White House logs, obtained by the House January 6 Committee, Georgia’s lawmaker attended an event on Dec. 21, 2020 about urging former Vice President Mike Pence, to change the outcome of elections.

She sent Mark Meadows a text message on December 31 telling him to get “organized” for the 6th. This was just one of several texts she sent to then White House Chief of Staff.
