Marjorie Taylor Greene accuses David Cameron of calling Republicans 'Hitler' and she's doubling down on her side


Marjorie Taylor Greene has wrongly asserted that British Foreign Secretary David Cameron likened Republicans unwilling to support more aid to Ukraine to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

“Well, firstly, I don't care much what Lord Cameron says. I just don't care,” she said. The Independent Thursday. “And secondly, he was calling us Hitler and calling us horrible names, which is very rude and he needs to stop making that connection.

“He needs to think about what he's actually saying,” she added. “So I don't care. He really needs to worry about his country. I think they are having all kinds of problems, and are getting into a recession. They should worry about their problems and leave our country alone.”

It comes after the hard-right Republican congresswoman said Lord Cameron “can kiss my a**” on Wednesday after urging the US Congress to pass aid to Ukraine and avoid repeating past mistakes, citing appeasement of Hitler as the forefront. -Until World War II.

The Democratic Senate has already passed a bill that would send more aid to Ukraine, but the legislation faces great difficulty in the House of Representatives.

In an editorial published in The hill Wednesday, Lord Cameron wrote: “As Congress debates and votes on this funding package for Ukraine, I will abandon all diplomatic niceties. I urge Congress to pass it.

He added: “I believe that our shared history shows the folly of surrendering to tyrants in Europe who believe in redrawing borders by force.” “I don't want us to show the weakness that Hitler showed in the 1930s. He came back to ask for more, which cost us more lives to stop his aggression.

“I don’t want us to show the weakness shown against Putin in 2008, when he invaded Georgia, or the uncertainty about the response in 2014, when he seized Crimea and much of Donbas – before coming back to cost us much more with his efforts,” Lord Cameron said. The former UK Prime Minister said that aggression is in 2022. He added: “I want us to show the strength that has been displayed since 2022, as the West helped the Ukrainians liberate half the territory that Putin seized, all without losing any NATO service personnel.”

“I don't want to read it, I know the British embassy wanted me to read it – I have lots of other things to do than read his editorial,” Ms Green said on Thursday.

Sky News' James Matthews asked Ms Green on Wednesday: “David Cameron says you should vote by funding Ukraine. What do you say to that?”

“I think he tried to compare her to Hitler too,” Green said, conflating the appeasers, whose behavior Lord Cameron cited, with the Nazi leader.

Ms Green has previously faced criticism for making comments comparing the use of masks during the pandemic to the Holocaust. She later visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. and apologized for the remarks.

Speaking about Lord Cameron on Wednesday, Ms Green told Sky News: “If that is the language he wants to use, I have nothing to say to him.”

“He likened what you can do to appease Hitler, to not vote by funding Ukraine. Are you appeasing Putin?” Matthews asked.

“I guess I don't really care what David Cameron says. I think that's inappropriate, and I don't appreciate that kind of language. David Cameron needs to worry about his country and, frankly, he can accept me,” she added.

During a visit to Poland on Thursday, the Secretary of State said he was not someone who wanted to “lecture American friends, or tell American friends what to do,” but added: “We really want to see Congress pass this money to Poland.” Support Ukraine economically, but decisively militarily in the coming months.

Lord Cameron told a press conference: “We must do everything we can to make sure Ukraine can succeed this year and beyond.”

He added: “We must not let Putin think that he can outmaneuver or delay us, and that is why this vote in Congress is so important.”

He added: “And I say this as someone who in no way wants to lecture American friends, or tell American friends what they should do.

“I say this as someone who has a deep and abiding love for the United States — for its democracy, its belief in freedom — [and] As someone who truly believes in the importance of our alliance.”
