Honestly? Because every part of Georgia is NOT like ( which is shame because I swear to goodness the majority of women there are all uncannily beautiful ) Atlanta. Georgia is THE south, along with some other states.How did she win the primary? Has the GOP become so full of nuts that only the crazies can win a primary now? Or were there no primary challengers either?

Ever since, she has been a source of controversy. Some of Greene’s most egregious social media posts, in which she endorsed QAnon, “liked” posts calling for the execution of prominent Democrats and questioned whether the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon ever happened, have pushed even some Republicans to denounce her. But those comments were public while she was running in that primary. So, why weren’t they an issue then? Or, to put a finer point on it, how did Greene get elected in the first place?
It wasn’t something special about her district. Instead, she got elected because of all the things that are special about American politics: the influence of money, polarization and kingmakers. And Greene wasn’t special in being able to harness those forces — the same could be done in many places around the country. A Marjorie Taylor Greene could be coming to a congressional district near you.
I had an interview in Atlanta recently. I liked it a lot. Funny thing is one of the pitches were the proximity of the airport, hinting that you don't have to deal with deep Georgia if you wanna travel, just fly over it, LOL.Honestly?

I remember doing a con in Atlanta ( Atlanta used to be the top my list, especially when I was a strip club fan ), and a guy that wanted to do business with myself and a few others invited us to a party. We passed because the parties in the hotel were always good, we got in free, and you didn't have to travel far when you got drunk. One of the persons with us is / was gay and proudly so. We ended up finding out the guy was basically trying to take us to an all white biker party. I won't bother explaining what happened after we found out what the guy intended for us.
ATLANTA — A Channel 2 Action News investigation has found that Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and her husband have two active homestead exemptions, which is against Georgia law.
A homestead exemption is a big tax break any Georgia homeowner is entitled to for their primary residence. It is against the law to file for more than one.
1. The woman who got arrested knocking on the door while Gov Kemp live streamed his signing of Georgia's new voting bill in front of a painting of a plantation and a room full of White men.Assume I'm dumb and remind me where this is from? Also why did they have to put Greene's face on the body of a woman wearing semi-transparent clothing ?

To me the interesting thing, MTG was aware she looked like she's off her rocker, that she deleted the video.
She maybe disturbed, but when she wants, she suddenly gets a grip to take advantage.
She's absolutely correct about this not making anybody feel or actually be safer.Why do conservatives hate AOC? Because it gives them something in common with establishment democrats.
National debates over heavy-handed police tactics, including so-called “militarized” policing, are often framed as a trade-off between civil liberties and public safety, but the costs and benefits of controversial police practices remain unclear due to data limitations. Using an array of administrative data sources and original experiments I show that militarized “special weapons and tactics” (SWAT) teams are more often deployed in communities of color, and—contrary to claims by police administrators—provide no detectable benefits in terms of officer safety or violent crime reduction, on average. However, survey experiments suggest that seeing militarized police in news reports erodes opinion toward law enforcement. Taken together, these findings suggest that curtailing militarized policing may be in the interest of both police and citizens.
