Vox: Marjorie Taylor Greene's incredible fundraising haul reveals what the GOP is really about

This just goes to show that the Trump Presidency has emboldened millions of racists who are willing to destroy the US Democracy to pick up where Trump left off. This is why every Republican is going to talk about immigrants, BLM and China. To stoke white resentment of Latinos, Asians and African Americans so that the white working class will support policies that only benefit the top 1 percent.

In preparation for what is likely to be a contentious reelection fight, freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has raised more than $3 million in the last three months, Politico reported Wednesday.

It’s a shocking total, one that dwarfs the nearly $728,000 Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) pulled in during the first three months of 2019, and it follows months of controversy that have dogged Greene since her election victory in November.

“I’m just getting started,” Greene tweeted Wednesday while celebrating the haul. “I am one of the people and the people are with me, and I will always be with them.”

Greene rose to political prominence in part because of her positive statements about QAnon, a far-right conspiracy theory that claims House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats are secretly running a cannibalistic sex-trafficking ring — and that former President Donald Trump has or had a secret plan to stop them. Greene has since distanced herself from those comments.

1. Anyone who has donated to this blastocyst needs to check their credit card and bank statements...

There may have been a hidden check box on the campaign donation web page to opt OUT of recurring charges.

At least AOC's donations are handled honestly.
