QAnon Rep. Dragged After Trying To Slam Ex-Labor Secretary For Being A 'Communists Professor'

QAnon-loving Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene engaged in a Twitter war with former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich who called for her expulsion from Congress.

Robert Reich is an economist who served under the Administrations of President Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and also served as the United States Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton.

He has also been a Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley since January 2006.

Reich has grown weary of the far-right Republican Representative from Georgia who was stripped of all her committee assignments by the House of Representatives for spreading dangerous false information and conspiracy theories—including claims mass school shootings and 9/11 were all staged.

She recently compared the House's mask mandate to the Holocaust.

On Sunday, Reich wrote:

"Can we all agree that Marjorie Taylor Green must be expelled from Congress?"

The Georgia Congresswoman's surname is spelled with an "e" at the end—something Greene pointed out when she responded to Reich.

However, when striking back at Reich with the spelling correction, Greene misspelled the name of the university where Reich is a professor.

Greene omitted an "e" in UC Berkeley and spelled it "Berkley."

"It's Greene with an 'e' on the end," she said of Reich's misspelling.

She also called Reich a "communists professor."

"Don't know you, but when I saw Berkley [sic] in your bio, I got it."
"Just put the hammer and sickle with it. Being a communists professor, you've never done the real hard work that builds the economy, you just teach ideas that will destroy it."

She followed her tweet addressing the correction, saying:

"*Berkeley Again who really cares."

Greene then referenced a study by the Global Chinese Philanthropy Initiative (GCPI) that indicated there had been a dramatic increase of donations to UC Berkeley and other higher learning institutions from Chinese and Chinese American benefactors.

However, she grossly misinterpreted the study and essentially said the Chinese government was behind the surge in donations.

"It's funded heavily by China. Again back to communism," she wrote.

"These people are everything wrong in America and they are taking over like kudzu. Let's throw them out."

Twitter questioned her reading and comprehension skills after her comment about China's contributions to universities.



Others disparaged the controversial GOP Congresswoman.



Last week, Greene appeared on the Christian Broadcasting Network's David Brody Real America's Voice podcast, The Water Cooler, and slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's requirement of wearing masks on the House floor due to concerns of GOP members who may not be vaccinated.

Greene then drew backlash from both sides of the aisle after making a comparison to the Holocaust.

She said of the Democratic House Speaker:

"This woman is mentally ill. You know, we can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens—so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany, and this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about."

The freshman Congresswoman was also previously lambasted after expressing support on social media for the execution of Pelosi.
