Marjorie Taylor Greene warned before the election that Americans would have to shed blood to 'get your freedoms back' if Trump lost
  • GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene warned Americans would have to pay "the price of blood" to "get your freedoms back" if Trump lost the election.
  • Greene has previously endorsed violence against Democratic leaders.
  • Greene has also promoted calls for violence against journalists.
"If this generation doesn't stand up and defend freedom, it's gone," Greene said in a video first reported on by Mother Jones on Friday. "And once it's gone, freedom doesn't come back by itself. The only way you get your freedoms back is it's earned with the price of blood."

The footage was from a late October conversation between gun rights activist Chris Dorr and Greene, a far-right Republican of Georgia, who said that voters had to choose between "freedom" and ending "America as we know it" in the 2020 election.

"This is it: November 3rd, freedom is on the ballot," she said. "You have a choice of either voting for freedom by voting for Donald J. Trump ... or you're going to vote for socialism and vote to completely end America as we know it. This is no joke."


This isn't the first instance of Greene apparently endorsing political violence.

... During a town hall on Tuesday, Greene promoted a suggestion from one of her supporters that journalists, who she refers to as "fake news," should be given "the electric chair."
