Controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime Guttenberg was killed in the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, were outside the U.S. Supreme Court ahead of a major Second Amendment hearing. The challenge at the Supreme Court could allow more Americans the right to carry pistols in public spaces like parks, schools, shopping malls, and churches, so it’s a significant day.
And if there is one thing Greene knows how to do, it’s to be rude, and that’s what she did, according to Guttenberg, who, he says, tried to introduce himself. He said that Greene refused to talk to him and her security told him to leave.
At the SC to deliver remarks on the 2A hearing taking place. @mtgreenee there as well. I attempted to introduce myself and she would not talk and her security told me to leave. I did get out that I was from Parkland. Considering the way she treats others, she is a fraud. pic.twitter.com/vDUvVrHFdV

She feels threatened by anything or anybody decent.

So @RepMTG has security. She loves to attack everyone on social media, but won’t have a conversation with anyone with a opposing view.

Ironically, she would have seen you as one of her own, and less threatening, if you had strapped on an AR-15. Keep up the good fight, Fred.

Calling her a fraud is a much nicer word then I would have used.

She isn’t vaccinated & won’t wear a mask so be careful

Imagine being that threatened by a simple introduction!

And it’s interesting that she wouldn’t speak to Guttenberg since Greene taunted Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg while following him down the street before she was elected to Congress. The gun issue has become so extreme that I’m surprised that they don’t want to arm babies at this point. I don’t want to give them any ideas, though, so I’ll see myself out.
