Democrat Challenges Marjorie Taylor Greene to Visit Holocaust Museum

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican from Georgia, was pushed by Jewish congressman Jared Moskowitz to visit a Holocaust museum on Wednesday after she made false claims that the Ukrainian people were Nazis.

There was a full-scale attack of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022. President Vladimir Putin of Russia said he wanted to “denazify” the Eastern European country.

Many people don’t agree with Putin’s claim that he is denazifying. They think that Russia is trying to take over Ukraine’s authority and power. The Russian president’s claim has been criticized by Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine. Zelensky is Jewish and had family members die in the Holocaust.

Greene read two articles about Nazis in Ukraine at a hearing on China on Wednesday. One was from Time magazine in January 2021 and was called “Like, Share, Recruit: How a White-Supremacist Militia Uses Facebook to Radicalize and Train New Members.” The other was from NBC News in March 2022 and was called “Ukraine’s Nazi Problem is Real, Even if Putin’s ‘Denacification’ Claim Isn’t.”

“It’s amazing to me that just in a few years time, it’s now considered misinformation to talk about the Nazis in Ukraine,” Greene said at the event.

Moskowitz, whose grandparents lived through the Holocaust, later responded to Greene’s comments by saying at the meeting, “There are no concentration camps in Ukraine…” He did not name the congresswoman by name.There aren’t any gas rooms. There are no ovens…They don’t want to get rid of a people.

“Stop bringing up Nazis and Hitler,” said he. “The only people who know about the Nazis and Hitler are the 10 million people who died and their families. They were a generation of people who were killed.” Now enough with this disgusting use of Nazis as propaganda.

“You want to talk about Nazis?” the congressman asked. Go to the museum about the Holocaust right away. Check out what the Nazis did. We’re disgusting for using that, letting it happen, and sitting here like it’s normal.

There is a group of Nazis in Ukraine, which Greene says is an excuse not to send more help to that Eastern European country. As the war between Russia and Ukraine enters its third year, fewer Republican politicians in the U.S. are in favor of continuing to fund it.

A funding plan worth $95 billion was passed by the Senate months ago. It would help Ukraine fight Russia, give Israel money for its war with Hamas, and give Taiwan money to fight Chinese aggression.

But the House hasn’t done anything about the bill yet. On Wednesday, House Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana, released the text of three separate funding bills that would help Ukraine, Israel, and the Indo-Pacific region.

Greene wrote on X, which used to be Twitter, on Sunday, “It’s antisemitic to demand that Ukraine’s Nazis pay for Israeli aid.” These bills should stand alone.

Community notes, which are short blurbs that appear below posts and usually disagree with what the poster says, checked the facts of Greene’s post.

It said, “Ukraine is not ‘Ukrainian Nazis.'” There is no truth to this claim from Russian misinformation. It is not “antisemitic” to put together security funding bills for different states into one bill.
