Who is Marjorie Taylor Greene? MTG? Conspiracy theory? QAnon?
Marjorie Taylor Greene , also known by her initials, MTG, is an American far-right politician, businesswoman, and conspiracy theorist serving as a US representative for Georgia’s 14th congressional district
A member of the Republican Party, Greene was elected to Congress in November 2020 and sworn into office on January 3, 2021.
Greene campaigned as a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump
She ran on the slogan “Save America, Stop Socialism!” In the days before the primary election, Facebook took down a Greene video for violating its terms of service
In the video she held an AR-15 style rifle and warned “antifa terrorists” to “stay the hell out of Northwest Georgia”
Greene was one of the 139 representatives who challenged the results of the 2020 US presidential election in Congress on January 7, 2021, the day after the storming of the US Capitol
She has voiced support for disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theories including Pizzagate, QAnon, false flag shootings as a means for Congress to legislate for gun control, 9/11 conspiracy theories, and the “Clinton Kill List”
Her Facebook account has expressed support for executing prominent Democratic politicians
After falsely asserting Donald Trump was elected in a landslide but the election had been stolen from him, Greene filed articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after his inauguration, alleging abuse of power
What is Conspiracy theory?
A conspiracy theory is an explanation for an event or situation that invokes a conspiracy by sinister and powerful groups, often political in motivation, when other explanations are more probable
The term has a negative connotation, implying that the appeal to a conspiracy is based on prejudice or insufficient evidence
Conspiracy theories resist falsification and are reinforced by circular reasoning:
both evidence against the conspiracy and an absence of evidence for it are re-interpreted as evidence of its truth, whereby the conspiracy becomes a matter of faith rather than something that can be proved or disproved
Research suggests that conspiracist ideation—belief in conspiracy theories—may be psychologically harmful or pathological and that it is correlated with psychological projection, paranoia and Machiavellianism
Psychologists attribute finding a conspiracy where there is none to a mental phenomenon called illusory pattern perception
Historically, conspiracy theories have been closely linked to prejudice, witch hunts, wars, and genocides
They are often strongly believed by the perpetrators of terrorist attacks, and were used as justification by Timothy McVeigh and Anders Breivik, as well as by governments such as Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and Turkey
