Greene said on Facebook that “there is an Islamic invasion into our government offices right now” and urged adherents of Islam and Sharia law to “stay over there in the Middle East,” according to Politico. She said that Black people “are held slaves to the Democratic Party,” while White males are “the most mistreated group of people in the United States today.”
Greene backed away from some of those comments during her campaign. In August, she told Fox News that QAnon “wasn’t part of my campaign” and that once she “started finding misinformation,” she “chose another path.”
But Greene has continued to spread misinformation and court controversy. In September, Greene asserted in a tweet that “children should not wear masks,” rejecting the recommendation of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other public health professionals. She also posted on Facebook an image of herself holding a gun alongside images of Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, encouraging “strong conservative Christians to go on the offense against these socialists who want to rip our country apart.” Facebook removed the photo by the following day, saying it violated the social network’s policies.
