Politicians Condemn Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ‘National Divorce’ Statements

Politicians on both ends of the aisle chastised Greene for her statements.

Politicians on both ends of the aisle chastised Greene for her statements.

Earlier this week, controversial Georgia Congressional Representative Marjorie Taylor Green appeared on an interview with The Washington Examiner, where she gave an extreme statement on the political divide in the United States. Greene suggested a “national divorce,” that the country should be forcefully divided into red states and blue states, and that the only alternative to this proposition would be a full-scale Civil War.

These extreme statements have drawn widespread condemnation from not only Democratic politicians and lawmakers, but Greene’s own fellow Republicans, who have called her out for a decidedly un-American ideology.

“I think Abraham Lincoln dealt with that kind of insanity,” Utah Senator Mitt Romney said at a press conference. “We’re not going to divide the country. It’s united we stand and divided we fall.”

“This rhetoric is destructive and wrong and—honestly—evil,” tweeted Utah Governor Spencer Cox. “We don’t need a divorce, we need marriage counseling. And we need elected leaders that don’t profit by tearing us apart. We can disagree without hate. Healthy conflict was critical to our nation’s founding and survival.”

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokesman Tommy Garcia urged House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to rein in Greene’s incendiary rhetoric. “Kevin McCarthy’s shameful silence on Marjorie Taylor Greene’s divisive calls for secession of states sends a dangerous message to conspiracy theorists and anarchists,” he said in a statement. “Apparently, upholding and defending the Constitution is merely a suggestion to the House Republican party.”
