Marjorie Taylor Greene compares Biden vaccine push to Nazi-era 'brown shirts' weeks after apologizing for Holocaust comments
Responding to remarks from Biden about mobilizing officials to reach unvaccinated individuals at their homes, Greene tweeted, "People have a choice, they don't need your medical brown shirts showing up at their door ordering vaccinations. You can't force people to be part of the human experiment."

The term "brown shirts" refers to the paramilitary group that helped facilitate Adolf Hitler's rise to power in the 1930s and '40s. The group bears no resemblance to Biden's plan for targeted outreach to unvaccinated communities in the face of rising concern about the Delta variant.

Asked about Greene's tweet by CNN's John Berman on "New Day," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the White House does not take medical advice from Greene.

The vaccine push, she said, "is about protecting people and saving lives. That's a role we're going to continue to play from the federal government and use any of the tools and tactics that we think will be effective."

Psaki said "that one of the biggest barriers is access. And people knowing when they can get the vaccine, where they can get the vaccine, the efficacy and safety of the vaccine. It's up to every individual to decide whether they're going to get vaccinated."


Greene also accused Biden of pushing a vaccine that is "NOT FDA approved." All three vaccines in the United States have emergency use authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration and have proven to be safe and effective in clinical trials. The vaccines are not yet fully approved by the FDA.
