Self-proclaimed White nationalist and incel Nick Fuentes mocked Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene after she attempted to distance herself from him amid the controversy that erupted since he joined rapper and designer Ye for a highly controversial meeting with former Republican President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
Greene's efforts come despite the fact that she was one of the few Republican lawmakers willing to publicly associate themselves with Fuentes at the America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC), which is widely known as a gathering for White nationalists and White supremacists.
Greene had previously claimed ignorance about Fuentes' "controversial" views after her appearance at AFPAC and felt compelled to clarify that she does "denounce" him and "his racists [sic] anti-semitic ideology" under pressure from White House news correspondent Laura Barrón-López.
She accused Barrón-López of not reporting "real news" and of ignoring the political missteps of Democrats, namely Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar, who has faced accusations of antisemitism since likening the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban.
You can see Greene's tweet below.
A displeased Fuentes took Greene to task during an appearance on the podcast Politically Provoked, suggesting she is a hypocrite for walking back her association with him and other White supremacists despite employing White supremacist talking points for political capital.
He went on to denounce her as a "divorced woman girlboss," saying her ongoing divorce proceedings undermine her efforts to be seen as "the face of Christian nationalism."
You can hear what Fuentes said in the video below.
“Has she ever done anything that shows good character in her entire life? She's just weak. She’ll go and say something edgy to get attention, and when the pressure comes, she buckles.”
She’s gonna say, ‘Uh oh, COVID is like the Holocaust.' Oh so edgy, wow, drink up all that attention, here’s the attention you ordered. And then the second it gets too hot, she’s ‘Oh I’m sorry. I went to a Holocaust museum.
“She wants to be the face of Christian nationalism. She’s divorced…and she’s like, actively an adulterer."
"How are you going to be the face of Christian nationalism when you’re a divorced woman girlboss? It doesn’t even make any sense."
"I’m so glad I don’t have to pretend to support that anymore.”
While no one is a fan of Fuentes, many did point out Greene's hypocrisy in the matter while criticizing them both.
It is likely Greene felt it even more appropriate to condemn Fuentes because of far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopolous' involvement in the controversial Mar-a-Lago dinner.
Earlier this year, Yiannopolous served as an intern for Greene. But his name has garnered her considerably negative press following Yiannopolous' claim he "set up" the dinner between Trump, Ye, and Fuentes "to make Trump's life miserable."
Yiannopoulos stressed he simply wanted "to make Trump's life miserable" because he knew the news about the dinner would leak, though his account of the events leading up to the dinner was disputed by Fuentes, who called it "fake news."
