Marjorie Greene, a Republican running for Congress in Georgia who made a splash in a recent television ad by blowing up “socialism,” told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” Wednesday that the message couldn’t be clearer: the country is in a fight for its life against Democrats.
Greene, a mother of three and business owner, said that running for Congress is not the most enjoyable task, but she said she has no intention of sitting back and watching Democrats inch the country closer to becoming a “Venezuela hellhole.”
Her campaign’s theme is: Save America, Stop Socialism.
“I love our country, I love our freedoms,” she said. “I carry a gun every single day because I feel it is one of our greatest rights, and I just believe America is worth fighting for.”
Her television ad has attracted attention.
The video cuts in on her driving a military-style Humvee across a field with a campaign sign in place of where a M2 Browning might usually be positioned. She addresses the camera and says, “America is the greatest country in the world” and she intends on keeping it that way.
The next scene, she is in the truck’s bed armed with an AR-15 and opens fire on paint cans filled with tannerite that represented gun control, open borders, the Green New Deal and socialism. The cans explode one by one.
She said nothing about the commercial was contrived. She used her family’s Humvee and fired her favorite gun. She said, “we’re a shooting family.”
“I love you Marjorie,” Todd Starnes, the best-selling author and host, said. “I don’t even know you, but I love you.”
Fox News pointed out that the business owner faces a crowded field for Georgia’s 14th congressional seat. She is a staunch supporter of President Trump and a social conservative. She recently told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that the country’s $23 trillion debt is something all Americans should be talking about.
“I know how to solve problems. I know what sacrificing is like,” Greene told the paper. “I know what it’s like to go without a paycheck for a very long time so I can pay my employees, pay my light bills, pay my material bills and do a good job with my company.”
She agreed with Starnes that Georgia is filled with RINOS (Republicans in Name Only) and said that they are part of the problem.
“I can’t unsee this future that exists for our children and grandchildren,” she said. “And I can’t just sit back and keep doing nothing and it’s complacency that led us to where we are now.”
