‘Wow … OK’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Leaves ‘60 Minutes’ Host Speechless With Assessment Of Democrat Party | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) appeared to leave "60 Minutes" host Lesley Stahl speechless when she doubled down on claims that the Democratic Party was "the party of pedophiles."

    Stahl interviewed Greene for Sunday evening's broadcast - and she asked the Georgia rep. why she had, in recent weeks, referred to the Democratic Party in that manner.

    "The Democrats are 'a party of pedophiles,'" Stahl said, prompting a response from Greene.

    "I would definitely say so. They support grooming children," was Greene's reply.

    "They are not pedophiles. Why would you say that?"

    "Democrats support - even Joe Biden, the president himself, supports children being sexualized and having transgender surgeries. Sexualizing children is what pedophiles do to children," Greene answered, drawing a direct comparison between pedophilia and the adults who were condoning or even promoting hormone-based or even surgical gender transition for minors.

    After a pause, Stahl said simply, "Wow ... okay."

    Greene shared video of the exchange and repeated her position in a tweet on Monday: "I'll say it again: sexualizing children is what pedophiles do to children. You're either fighting to stop it or you support it. There is no in between."

    Greene has vocally opposed gender transition for children - whether hormone-based or surgical - and has put forth a bill titled Protect Children's Innocence Act in an effort to stop it.

    "In order to protect our nation's children from gender lies and permanent damage to their bodies, we must pass my bill, Protect Children's Innocence Act. My bill will make it a felony to perform 'gender, affirming care' on minors under the age of 18, stop damaging puberty blockers, unhealthy hormones, allow victims to sue for damages, and will protect growing kid's bodies into adulthood," she tweeted.

    The "60 Minutes" interview was largely panned before it even aired by liberals who were angry that CBS was giving the Georgia Republican any attention at all.

    During Monday's broadcast of ABC's midday talk show "The View," the hosts were angry that Stahl had not pushed back harder against Greene's claims.

    "Where were the receipts?" host Sunny Hostin complained.

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.
