Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is still using words that she doesn't understand, and remarkably it is usually the same word: Communism. Greene now says that OSHA is somehow engaging in "Communist" actions and is calling on her fellow Republicans to strip the agency of funding for trying to protect American workers. Her stupidity is now a threat to your safety, as Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains.

Over the weekend, Marjorie Taylor Greene showed us that once again, she has no idea what the word communism means. In a tweet she attacked OSHA over the upcoming vaccine mandate that is set to go into place early in January and she actually called on her fellow Republicans to defund the agency that helps protect American workers at work. Here's what she said. The most important thing Republicans can do is to stop the funding of vaccine mandates. Republicans voting for funding of OSHA will be voting to fund communist tactics used against the American people. Vaccine mandates are unconstitutional, no matter your stance on vaccines. Again, as usual, so many wrong, wrong things in such a few number of sentences. First and foremost, no, vaccine mandates are actually not unconstitutional. Since 1905 the United States Supreme Court has been holding that vaccine mandates are in fact constitutional.

And as we've talked about, as everybody has talked about, vaccine mandates actually out date the United States itself. George Washington required his troops in the revolutionary war before the United States was even its own country to be vaccinated. They are older than this country. And the Supreme Court as recently as just a couple of weeks ago, upheld that vaccine mandates are in fact constitutional. And I know Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn't want to live in that reality and doesn't want her followers to understand that that's the truth. But that doesn't mean it's not the truth. The Supreme Court is very clear on this, even today's conservative Supreme Court, vaccine mandates are in fact constitutional. But that's beside the point. The real problem Marjorie Taylor Greene has is that everything she doesn't like is communism.

She throws that word out like they're beads at a Mardi Gras parade, just everything, communism, communism, communist, communist. She has no idea what that means. How our worker protections communism? Like that doesn't even fit under the scheme of, of communism, right? We're not surrendering control of, of corporations over to the workers. Okay. This is just, hey, we have to protect people, especially now that we've got an Omicron variant, you know, going across the globe, Moderna's CEO came out and said, he's not even sure if the vaccines that we've already gotten are going to protect us against Omicron. So here we are. But that doesn't mean that we still don't have to worry about the original COVID 19, the Delta variant, and any other variant. People need to get vaccinated so that we don't see more variants emerge.

And defunding OSHA, that's just idiotic because OSHA is not only in the business of putting vaccine mandates in place, that is the government agency that makes sure that you don't get hurt, injured or killed while you're on the job. In no way shape or form is that communism. But Marjorie Taylor Greene loves to throw that word out because she knows it's red meat to her base. She knows that they have no understanding of what that word actually means. They just know that the connotation of it is bad. So everything they don't like is communism, regardless of whether it actually is or not, because they don't know what it means. And Marjorie Taylor Greene's stupidity is going to put every American worker in danger.
