California Republican gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner is getting a full dose of what her political party stands for this week. First Republican transphobia was on full display at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) event in Dallas, Texas.

Then Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia attacked the people supporting Jenner's run for governor with transphobic rhetoric.

Greene tweeted:

Jenner responsded:

Despite Greene's claims, conservatives love to play the identity politics game.

This made it easy for Jenner to bring up Greene losing a case against a political action committee Meidastouch LLC who used the funds from winning to lobby for greater gun control.

Greene's tweet comes after Jenner was harassed by an attendee at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

A video of a CPAC attendee deadnaming Jenner and calling her a "sick freak" went viral online. Afterwards, a number of conservative personalities took sides with some defending Jenner and others doubling down on the vitriol.

In either case, no one forgot the Republican party is a party steeped in transphobia.







Greene is a controversial lawmaker, with a number of hateful quotes attributed to her. She's also been known in the past to push conspiracy theories such as QAnon or "Pizzagate" before that.

Before this fight with Jenner, Greene's main target was Democratic Representative Marie Newman of Illinois, who has a transgender daughter. Greene would post signs outside her office, directly across from Newman, stating "There are two genders" and mockingly saying "Trust the science!"

As bad as Greene is, Jenner isn't that much better.

She's supported legislation that would hurt or discriminate against other trans people, such as endorsing former President Donald Trumps' ban on trans people from serving in the military. She's also running on a very standard Republican platform that includes excluding trans girls from playing in sports for girls.

Despite their fight, Greene and Jenner are both the same politically.







Greene will be co-hosting an America First rally this weekend, either oblivious or fully aware of America First's Ku Klux Klan origins. Greene has been sharing the stage in these rallies with embattled Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz who is being investigated for sex trafficking of a minor.

Jenner continues campaigning for the California recall election, set for September 14, 2021.
