Not like the

Holocaust: Rep.

Marjorie Taylor

Greene (R-Ga.) last week likened the House’s coronaviru­s mask rules to Nazi treatment of Jews during the Holocaust. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has told legislator­s they must wear masks on the House floor until they can prove they’ve been vaccinated. “We can look back at a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star...and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany,” Greene said on the Real America’s Voice network’s conservati­ve show The Water Cooler With David Brody. “And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about.” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) joined Democrats in condemning Greene, calling her remarks “evil lunacy.” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Greene’s “decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling,” but also accused Democrats of ignoring antiSemiti­sm in their own ranks and made no moves to formally censure her.
