Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is calling for a “national divorce” along Republican and Democratic lines, claiming the two parties face “irreconcilable differences.”
“We need a national divorce,” Greene said on Monday. “We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”
She elaborated on the idea in a 13-tweet thread on Tuesday. She theorized that in a national divorce, so-called “red states” dominated by Republicans would “bring back prayer in school,” ban “all gender lies and confusing theories,” and be “completely free to build and use fossil fuel energy.”
Red states would also not be overseen by a national Department of Education, she said, but still the “federal government would have to maintain the Department of Defense.”
Blue states under Democratic control would “likely have government funded Antifa communists training schools” as well as “government controlled gender transition schools,” she said, adding that blue states would leave the left free to “achieve their dreams of total and complete lawlessness.”
On her congressional Twitter account, Greene on Monday said, “Impeach Biden or give us a national divorce,” criticizing the president for continuing to support Ukraine against the ongoing Russian invasion.
Greene has previously mentioned a “national divorce” on Twitter more than a dozen times since October 2021. She first raised the idea in a poll in which more than 47 percent of people preferred for the U.S. to “stay together,” while 52 percent were either undecided or wanted a divorce along party lines.
In another thread in December 2021, Greene said that “threatening a divorce” is necessary to serve as “a wake up call to the one offending the other that they’ve had enough.”
