It was November 2018 when then Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, wrote in a Facebook post of a conspiracy linking Rothschild Inc. to “lasers or blue beams of light” that she alleged caused the devastating 2018 wildfires in California. At the time she wasn’t an elected official but a businesswoman who ran one of the most successful cross fit gym’s in the nation.
The Facebook post has since been deleted, according to Media Matters, which first reported on the lengthy social media statement.
The Rothschild family, a wealthy Jewish family, has been the target of antisemitic tropes for centuries.
A number of Jewish organizations condemned Greene’s post, including the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC). Their statement, released last Friday, renewed the group’s commitment to speak out “against antisemitic comments from individuals on both sides of the political aisle” and defended that “the RJC has never supported or endorsed Marjorie Taylor Greene.”
The statement added, “We opposed her as a candidate and we continue to oppose her now. She is far outside the mainstream of the Republican Party, and the RJC is working closely with House Republican leadership regarding next steps on this matter.
Greene’s recently-unearthed posts, along with other conspiracies she’s touted regarding the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, and the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, may cost her her recent assignments to the House Committee on Education and Labor and the House Budget Committee.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-MD, has reportedly given House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, a 72-hour ultimatum to strip Greene of her seats on those committees, according to Politico.
“The resolution introduced at today’s pro forma would remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments,” Hoyer said in a statement. “It is my hope and expectation that Republicans will do the right thing and hold Rep. Greene accountable, and we will not need to consider this resolution. But we are prepared to do so if necessary.”
A McCarthy spokesperson told this reporter Tuesday that the Republican Leader found Greene’s comments to be “deeply disturbing” and “plans to have a conversation with the Congresswoman about them.”
The Dark Wire Investigation Foundation contacted Rep. Greene’s office, asking if she would apologize for her past remarks and provide a statement, but didn’t received a response.
Both Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, however, have outwardly denounced Greene’s past statements.
On Monday, McConnell condemned Greene’s “loony lies and conspiracy” theories” as a “cancer for the Republican Party.”
“Somebody who’s suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality,” McConnell said in a statement first reported by The Hill. “This has nothing to do with the challenges facing American families or the robust debates on substance that can strengthen our party.”
Watchdog StopAntisemitism.org stands by the move.
“StopAntisemitism.org supports the removal of Marjorie Taylor Greene from all committee assignments,” said StopAntisemitism.org’s Director Liora Rez in a statement to The Dark Wire Investigation Foundation. “Her ludicrous conspiracy theories and racist views do not belong in the halls of Congress.”
After McConnell made the statement, Greene tweeted that “the real cancer for the Republican Party is weak Republicans who only know how to lose gracefully.”
She continued, “This is why we are losing our country.”
Pelosi on Monday told reporters that her concern is with “the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives who was willing to overlook, ignore those statements.”
“Assigning her to the Education Committee when she has mocked the killing of little children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, when she has mocked the killing of teenagers in High School at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, what could they be thinking? Or is thinking too generous a word for what they might be doing?”
Meanwhile, Greene took to Twitter Tuesday morning, calling House members pushing for her expulsion “hypocrites.”
In one tweet, Greene asked, “Who should be removed from those committees? Me – brand new to Congress?” adding “OR… The career politicians who enslaved Americans to nearly $30 trillion in debt, puts up walls to protect themselves but no wall to protect you?

More than half of top Medical Schools now mandate Critical Race Theory
In a win for the woke warriors who care more about feelings than they do science or medical wellbeing, medical schools are being forced to mandate Critical Race Theory (CRT) training.
According to the Critical Race Training in Education database and reported by the Daily Caller:
Approximately 58 of the top 100 medical schools ranked by the U.S. News & World report include CRT in their courses and student training, according to the Critical Race Training in Education database. Of the top schools, 46 provide students and staff with resources by Robin DiAngelo, the author of “Nice Racism,” a book about how progressive white people perpetuate racial harm, and Ibram X. Kendi, the author of several books on antiracism including “Stamped.”
The Critical Race Training in Education database states, “As with our higher education database, some have embraced CRT explicitly, while others have a continuum of programming, such as ‘antiracism,’ ‘equity,’ and ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’ that does not easily fit into a Yes/No construct…We provide information from which you can make the most informed decision possible.”
The Daily Caller notes that CRT holds that America is fundamentally racist, yet it teaches people to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. Its adherents pursue “antiracism” through the end of merit, objective truth and the adoption of race-based policies.
The antiracism push in medical education is increasing; to reach diversity, equity and inclusion goals, 35.6% of medical schools are offering incentives to departments who meet the diversity goals set by the institution. In July, the Association of American Medical Colleges released new guidelines on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives for medical schools to teach students to consider their “privilege” and patients’ “intersectionality” when providing treatment.
The Daily Caller provides a breakdown on some of the nation’s top Medical Schools:
Harvard Medical School, named the top medical school in the country by the U.S. News & World report, is developing new classes for their masters and Ph.D. programs which will help students “acknowledge the ways in which racism is embedded in science and scientific culture and work to redress these longstanding issues,” according to Harvard Medical School’s website. The school’s Global Surgery and Social Change program requires its students to “participate in and lead informed discussions about antiracism through a dedicated antiracism curriculum” in order to educate students on the “history of racism and colonialism in health.”
The University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, ranked third in the U.S. News & World report of medical schools, has racial affinity caucusing groups for students to participate in “antiracist work and process the impact of racism on ourselves and our community,” the school’s website reads. In September 2022, the school announced its “Differences Matter Initiative” to help the school “accelerate the achievement of equity and inclusion across the medical profession.”
Duke University School of Medicine, ranked sixth by the U.S. News & World report of medical schools, implemented an antiracism committee to “incorporate teaching racism and racial inequities” through “teaching, research and clinical missions,” the school website showed. The school offers resources including “an antiracist reading list from Ibram X. Kendi” to help further its goal of making the school “an educational and research leader and agent of change towards an antiracist culture.”
The department of surgery at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, ranked 68th for medical schools in the nation, provides “ongoing faculty development sessions in topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion,” the school website stated. Students in the department of surgery will be taught to “eliminate the impact of implicit and explicit bias” within their practice.
