Trump supporter Greene apologizes for Holocaust settlement

After comparing vaccine logos and the Nazis’ persecution of Jews, Republican Marjorie Taylor Green has now apologized. She responded to public pressure and from her party.

Republican US Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green has apologized for comparisons between protective measures in the corona pandemic and the persecution of Jews by the Nazis. “One of the best lessons my father always taught me is that if you make a mistake, you should admit it,” said former US President Donald Trump’s supporter on Monday (local time) in Washington.

Greene said she was at the Holocaust Museum in the US capital that afternoon. Even as a young woman she dealt with the crimes of the National Socialists: during a visit to the memorial of the former German concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. “There is no comparison to the Holocaust and there are words I have said and remarks I have made that I know are offensive and I apologize for that,” Greene said.

The politician stuck to her criticism of Corona protective measures and an alleged “compulsory vaccination” – which does not exist in the USA. “I find that forced masks and forced vaccinations or vaccination certificates are a type of discrimination, and I am very much against that type of discrimination.”

Criticism of the mask requirement

Among other things, Greene compared planned vaccination logos on name tags of employees of a supermarket with the fact that the Nazis had forced the wearing of Jewish stars. Speaking in May of the US House of Representatives, Greene said of the mask requirement, “You know, we can look back at a time in history when people were told they had to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, like that very much that they were put on trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. “

With her repeated comparisons of the Corona measures with the systematic murder of six million Jews, Greene had sparked outrage across party lines and raised her own faction leadership against her. She also publicly advertised the so-called QAnon conspiracy theories several times. Its supporters believe, for example, that Trump tried to expose systematic child abuse by satanist politicians of the US Democrats.
