Far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Tuesday launched a competition to join her hunting for feral hogs in Texas. In a video shared on Facebook, the extremist lawmaker likened Democrats to the wild animals that tear up farmers’ crops.
“We’ve got skyrocketing inflation, high diesel fuel and Democrats’ America-last policies,” said Greene, who has been stripped of her House committee assignments over her use of violent rhetoric, including toward Democrats.
“Democrats aren’t the only ones destroying farmers’ ability to put food on the table,” she continued, noting (correctly) that wild hogs have destroyed farmers’ fields.
