We Don't Accept Your Apology, Miss Green Found Poem Plus Snarky comments

Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene
apologised on Monday
for previously comparing Covid mask mandates to the Holocaust,
following a secret visit to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum
in Washington DC.

"The horrors of the Holocaust
are something that some people
don't even believe happened
, and some people deny,
but there is no comparison to the Holocaust,"

. "There are words that I have said
and remarks that I have made
that I know are offensive
and for that I want to apologise."

Comment: A bit too late my dear
For words once uttered
Can not be taken back
That is the iron law
Of the karma of words
End Comments

The scandal began in late May,
when the congresswoman
called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
"mentally ill" for supporting mask mandates.

"We can look back at a time in history
when people were told
to wear a gold star, and
... they were put in trains
and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany,"

"This is exactly the type of abuse
that Nancy Pelosi is talking about."

The comments
drew immediate condemnation
from Jewish groups
as well as some of her own colleagues,

but the provocative Georgia Republican
continued strongly defending her comparison.
"I stand by all of my statements,"

"I said nothing wrong.
Any rational Jewish person
didn't like what happened in Nazi Germany,
and any rational Jewish person
doesn't like what's happening
with overbearing mask mandates
and overbearing vaccine policies."

Comment: any rational person
Would condemn your hateful
Bigoted anti-Semitic nonsense

You dear
Are the one suffering from mental illness
And should have your head examined

But perhaps they will find
Nothing inside there

End comment
Republicans quickly condemned her statements,
with GOP House leader Kevin McCarthy
saying she had belittled
"the greatest atrocity committed in history."

Dear Representative McCarthy
Your words ring hollow
Since you refuse to do anything
At all to remove her
From congress

End comment
The Georgia Republican
has previously called the election of Muslim congresswomen
like Ilhan Omar an "Islamic invasion,"
lied about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

telling supporters to "punch a cop,"
posed with an assault rifle
next to pictures of "The Squad"
group of progressive congress members in the House,
supported the QAnon mass delusion,
and endorsed 9/11 conspiracy theories.


She is indeed a piece of work
And No,
We don't accept
Her crocodile tears apology
