Republican House leaders condemn Marjorie Taylor Greene's 'appalling' comparisons of vaccines and masks to Nazism
  • Republican House leadership condemned Marjorie Taylor Greene for comparing COVID-19 mitigation to Nazism.
  • Greene has argued that mask mandates and vaccination policies are like the persecution of Jews in the Holocaust.
  • House leader Kevin McCarthy issued a statement on Tuesday calling Greene's comments "wrong" and "appalling."
Republican House leadership and several other prominent conservatives condemned GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for repeatedly comparing COVID-19 mitigation to Nazism.

Greene, a far-right freshman member from Georgia who's promoted a slew of conspiracy theories, argued that the government and private companies are discriminating against those who haven't received the COVID-19 vaccine in the same way Nazis persecuted Jews in the Holocaust.


"Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi's forced Jewish people to wear a gold star," Greene tweeted on Tuesday morning. "Vaccine passports & mask mandates create discrimination against unvaxxed people who trust their immune systems to a virus that is 99% survivable."

Greene argued on a podcast last week that the House mask mandate is "exactly the type of abuse" Nazis committed against Jews.

Amid mounting pressure on Republicans to condemn Greene's remarks, House leader Kevin McCarthy issued a statement on Tuesday calling Greene's comments "wrong" and "appalling."

"Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling," McCarthy said in his statement. "Let me be clear: the House Republican Conference condemns this language."
