Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene recently attempted to start something with Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, but Hogg wasn't having it.
Greene was apparently informed Hogg would be in Washington DC this week for March For Our Lives—a march aiming to end gun violence—and decided to try to antagonize the activist on Twitter.
Greene tweeted at Hogg:
"I hear you & your girls are funded to come to town this week to once again try to manipulate some of my gutless weak colleagues to vote for gun control that will violate our freedoms and leave Americans defenseless."
She ended the tweet:
"I don’t see you on my schedule, why not?"
Hogg had the good sense not to take the bait though, telling Greene:
"I’m more interested in protecting children and meeting commonsense people who are looking for reasonable solutions to stop children from dying. Don’t really have time to help you go viral for attacking survivors so you can fundraise."
Several Twitter users reminded Greene of the last time she maliciously followed Hogg around the Capitol with a camera.
Greene harassed Parkland students just weeks after the shooting took place while Hogg was still a high school student and Greene was just an attention seeking gun rights advocate and QAnon conspiracy theorist trawling the Capitol for social media content.
This young man, David Hogg, is the same person that you harassed after the Parkland School shooting. He was in Washington DC when you did this. Or will you once again say you don’t remember or can’t recall? pic.twitter.com/9F9F4cqWPP

Because you’re a dangerous stalker that should never be notified.

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime was killed at Parkland, also joined the conversation.
Hey @RepMTG, I will also be coming to DC. I will bring pictures of my girl Jaime, who was murdered in Parkland. If you are looking for people to put on your schedule, please put me. Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday? What day is best for you?

At time of writing, it appeared Greene had neglected to reply to Guttenberg.
@RepMTG are you putting Fred on your schedule? Waiting to hear which day works best? You love to talk, let’s see the action.

A few others also volunteered to debate Greene, if she was looking for one.
She doesn't want to debate.
You know she's going to chase David Hogg around too with her crew like when she visited her opponents office before the election.

Many pointed out Greene's hypocrisy in claiming to protect Americans.
And many were nowhere near as nice about it as Hogg.
You’re a disgusting bully.
You stalked him and verbally assaulted him while knowing he had survived a horrific tragedy.
You chased him while he simply walked down the street.
You hurled insults & accusations.
You are a small, sick, nasty, twisted excuse for a human.
An evil hack.

Greene attempted to riposte, but fell very flat.
"David, you fundraise for a living. If you wanted to fix it, you would discuss common sense solutions with me, someone who has also been on lockdown as a student when the only madman with a gun is another student who wants to kill people. Not just bully my weak RINO colleagues."
David, you fundraise for a living.
If you wanted to fix it, you would discuss common sense solutions with me, someone who has also been on lockdown as a student when the only madman with a gun is another student who wants to kill people.
Not just bully my weak RINO colleagues. https://t.co/Cka3jF12jV

It seems that Hogg has refused to even dignify her second attempt to bait him with a response.
