Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was allegedly attacked by a woman and her son at a restaurant on Monday night.
Greene claimed that the woman screamed and harassed her, while her son joined in the attack. The congresswoman said she was simply working at her table with her staff and never noticed the attackers until they started causing a scene.
Greene accused the attackers of having no respect for the restaurant, the staff, or other diners who have different political views.
She lamented that people no longer respect others who have different views and accused the attackers of being “self-righteous” and “completely out of control.” This incident highlights the growing political polarization in the country, with Republicans feeling increasingly targeted for their political beliefs.
This incident is just the latest in a series of attacks and threats that Greene has faced. Earlier this month, a man from New York pleaded guilty to leaving threatening voicemails on her phone.
This kind of hostility and intolerance is dangerous and threatens to tear the country apart.
