Rep. Taylor Greene uses “medical brown shirts” to describe the Covid-19 vaccination campaign


On Tuesday, MP Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) used the term “medical brown shirts” in a tweet when referring to the Covid-19 vaccination. And chances are she wasn’t referring to shirts covered in Nutella.

Here is the tweet along with a response from another twitterer:

Usually you don’t associate a brown shirt with medical professionals unless there has been an unfortunate encounter with explosive diarrhea. When you search for “brownshirt” on, there are two definitions:

  1. a nazi.
  2. a Nazi storm chaser.

It’s a bit like offering one definition and then using a second definition to say, “Was that the first time you listened?” The word “brown shirt” is heavily associated with Nazis. That’s because members of Adolf Hitler’s German Nazi Stormtrooper Army wore brown shirts. And these stormtroopers did terrible, terrible things, so appalling and gruesome that the image of the “brown shirt” stuck in people’s minds. This includes responsibility for the Holocaust, the genocidal murder of millions of Jews and others whom the Nazis considered inferior. If you made it through high school and world history class, you probably have learned something about the Holocaust.

Taylor Greene is 47 years old, nearly three decades older than the typical high school graduate. But she only found out how bad the Holocaust was three weeks ago when she visited the Holocaust Museum. After her visit, she probably apologized for suggesting that the Covid-19 vaccination and other Covid-19 precautions somehow corresponded to the Nazi atrocities surrounding World War II, as you can see in the video for the following tweet:

In her speech, she said things like “one of the best lessons my father always taught me was that if you make a mistake, admit it” and “I made a mistake and he took me for a few weeks really bothered now. So I definitely want to own it. ”She continued,“ There is no comparison to the Holocaust. There are words I’ve said, comments I’ve made that I know are offensive. And I apologize for that. ”It’s pretty late for a 47-year-old who went to high school and college to finally learn how terrible the Holocaust was. Is it a bit like an adult saying, “I’m sorry I dropped the anvil on your head because I didn’t know there was this gravity thing? Still better late than never, right?

Again, it was believed that Taylor Green apologized for somehow linking the Holocaust to the precautionary measures against Covid-19. I’ve covered for before Forbes some examples of how she did this and then received warmth. In fact, on June 14th, Andrew Solender wrote for Forbes a play entitled “Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She ‘Removes’ Holocaust Comparisons From Her Previous Corrections Of Covid Measures.”

Lo and behold, there was Taylor Greene again with the reference to the brown shirts, who tweeted, “Biden, who is promoting a vaccine that is NOT FDA approved, shows that Covid is a political tool used to control people becomes. People have a choice, they don’t need your medical tan shirts on their doorstep to order vaccinations. You can’t force people to be part of the human experiment. ”In fact, there is no comparison to the Holocaust unless you seem to be comparing the Covid-19 vaccination to the Holocaust.

That wasn’t the only problem with Taylor Greene’s tweet. She indicated that the Covid-19 vaccination was a “human experiment”. The vaccines Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 have received emergency approval (EUA) from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). While this isn’t the same as full FDA approval, it doesn’t mean the vaccines haven’t been thoroughly tested. That doesn’t mean they aren’t effective and relatively safe. That certainly does not mean that the current Covid-19 vaccination program is just a human experiment.

According to the FDA, “in an emergency under an EEA, the FDA makes a product available to the public based on the best available evidence, without waiting for all of the evidence required for FDA approval or clearance.” This does not mean that those who test and manufacture the vaccine withhold evidence. It’s just that participants in the Phase 3 clinical trial who received the vaccines weren’t followed long enough to gain full approval. That’s because the Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna studies didn’t begin registering participants until late July 2020, and the Johnson & Johnson study didn’t begin until late last September. Vaccines don’t stay in the body long after they stimulate an immune response. Therefore, most of the side effects, if they occur, occur relatively soon after vaccination. A vaccine is not like a drug or supplement that you take over and over over time, sometimes daily. Therefore, the chance of experiencing side effects months after vaccination is much lower.

If current efficacy and safety trends for the three Covid-19 vaccines continue, they will eventually receive full approval, most likely before the end of 2021. There are currently no other indications.

Taylor Greene has not really provided evidence to support her other claims that Covid is used to control people and enforce vaccinations. To borrow and customize a catchphrase from the TV show His field, the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) is real and spectacular in a bad way. The virus has already caused at least 605,905 deaths in the United States and that number continues to rise. Nobody forces you to get vaccinated, just as nobody forces you to wear shoes and a shirt all the time. If you complain that some companies that require vaccinations are taking away your liberty, then see what happens the next time you go to work shirtless, assuming your job doesn’t require you to be Twist the pole and put money in your G-string.

To be an adult means to make choices and accept the consequences. Children certainly think that they have their cake and can eat it too. (By the way, you don’t really want to have a cake after eating it.) But at some point you learn that you can’t say or do what you want without consequences. You are still free to choose not to be vaccinated. But you need to be aware that if you choose not to, you need to accept the higher risk of contracting Covid-19 and understand that you pose a greater risk to others. Hence, you need to take precautions such as wearing face masks and observing social distancing, such as B. keep at least two meters or a Denzel distance from others, since Denzel Washington is about two meters tall. These precautionary measures are intended to prevent you from infecting other people around you. Because if you don’t stick a cotton swab up your nose every minute and constantly test all samples, you won’t always be able to tell when you will become infected and contagious.
