Vaccine Skepticism Runs Deep Among White Evangelicals in US
"Health officials are hoping a national vaccine campaign can stop the spread of covert 19. But some groups are hesitant to get on board, among them white evangelicals. Surveys show there among the people least likely to say they will get the vaccine. NPR's Sarah McCammon reports on how pastors and public health leaders are working to change that among one of the nation's largest religious groups. In a certain segment of Christian escapology, which is just a big word for what you think will happen at the end of the world. There's this idea of the mark of the beast. For the uninitiated, it's bad, and if you want to go to heaven, you'd better not get it. And I asked the question earlier today. Is this something like Biden's mark of the beast? Because that is really disturbing. And not good. That's Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene in a recent video posted online green is suggesting, and I have to say here without evidence a connection between that idea and vaccines. Jared Cornett is a pastor in Irving, Texas. And he's heard this too in some of his Southern Baptist Facebook groups, But to me, I have a very hard time from getting the bat scene. The mark of the beast, Cornett says. Thankfully, he hasn't heard that in his church, but he has run across some skepticism and misunderstandings about the science behind the Corona virus vaccine. Nationally. White evangelicals report a high degree of vaccine hesitancy. In one recent survey just over half said they were likely to get vaccinated compared to 64% of evangelicals of color. Both groups were well below the rate for non evangelicals 77%, and I think it's just this information as well. Cornett says. Some church members who oppose abortion also have moral concerns about how some of the vaccines were developed, including research involving fetal cells from abortions performed decades ago.

"Party accountable. It's really a decision on the part of the republican leadership and remember on thursday. Liz cheney has been reaffirmed a member of the republican leadership at. They're going to try to hold this rickety coalition together and that they're going to try to include both the most traditional elements in the republican party. And the most extreme elements in the republican party at least for the duration of the current congress when you see ten members voting to impeach president trump eleven members voting to strip. Marge taylor green of her committee assignments. It's very very clear that the vast majority of republicans are not eager to have that kind of all out battle against an extreme element in their own party at this time because they fear what will happen to them at the ballot box. That's absolutely right that so many times. The conversation about the battle within the republican party becomes about president trump verses one other person or Matt gaetz against liz cheney and the force that we really should talk about here is republican primary that there is still a broad sense within republican politics including at the leadership level. I in both the house and senate that republican primary voters really liked president trump and they are really drawn to a version of politics. That is totally alien to people who entered congress more than a couple of years ago and that the voices of extremism if they express themselves in a certain kind of way and on a certain kind of platform whether it's facebook or fox news. They really get the republican base riled up and most members of congress do not want to run headlong into that when they faced the voters again in a year You know as we're talking. I'm realizing that while january six did cause a kind of temporary flareup in this civil war. We've been discussing and made it impossible for the party to avoid something like these two votes. That just occurred in the house. Republicans are actually doing everything in their power to return to the dynamic of the past four years as quickly as possible right a dynamic in which they don't confront these divisions they don't confront extremism head on and a dynamic in which they put their heads down once again and hope that this silence this unwillingness to reject her right elements of the party doesn't become a liability with voters or cause more violence and that in their actions over the past week. They have made the decision not to confront it. Basically they continue to put off this reckoning and hope that enough americans are comfortable with the republican party. That somehow holds space for both liz. Cheney and marjorie taylor green. That's absolutely right.

"Marjorie taylor green fake news media the dc swamp the political establishment. Trying to take me out. But there's definitely more or less than there is them so green is a figure who comes from a very very red district in northern georgia. It's an open seat in the twenty twenty election. It's a crowded primary and as this is happening all kinds of stuff from her past and frankly really. Her present starts to come out in terms of her flirtation with cunanan conspiracy. Theories offensive comments that she has made about a range of groups and political figures so we knew that martyr green was an extreme figure last year when she was a candidate for the house but in the aftermath of the election and the aftermath of january six we see new proof of that over and over again we see video of her harassing one of the parkland students. David hogg who then becomes a gun. Control activist we get new detail on. Just how outlandish some of her conspiracy theories have been anti semitic conspiracy theories about the rothschild family using a laser weapon to start fires in california suggesting that perhaps a plane did not hit the pentagon on nine eleven. This is just as far out as it gets for somebody who actually holds federal office and it is a very vivid illustration of the kind of extreme figure who has come into the political arena on the strength of president trump's movement but who is actually more extreme than trump himself. So how do these to house. Republicans who could not be further apart in background and belief. End up on such a clear. Collision course as the republican party is debating whether to punish cheney weather to eject from leadership. There's a parallel debate happening both within the republican party but also within the congress as a whole involving the democrats do control the majority in the house of representatives about what to do about somebody. As extreme as marjorie taylor. Green somebody who democrats i think unanimously see as complicit in the violence of january sixth and weathering somebody like her can be tolerated in the chamber at all let alone sitting on specific committees like the education committee and we see that debate about what to do about green and her place in the house. Culminate almost literally at the same time as the republican. Party's debate about cheney in a meeting within the republican conference this last week and that sort of inevitably turns these two figures into contest cases for the various future identities of the republican party. You could see this as a moment where the party is really at a crossroads. And we're republican leaders and were rank and file. Republicans have to decide. Are going to be the party of liz. Cheney arguably the party marjorie taylor green or are they going to somehow try to be a party that encompasses both of them. That includes both a lawmaker. Who was one of the most prominent voices encouraging the stop. The steel conspiracy theories that culminated on january six and someone like me who becomes the loudest and.
Marjorie Taylor Greene: US House votes to strip Republican of key posts
"Report. That they're covid. Nineteen shot may not only protect against disease but also help to prevent spread of the sars o. V. two virus the news was heralded by policymakers desperate to see a vaccine that can curb the spread of the disease but scientists have been a bit more cautious if confirmed the results would represent a breakthrough in the covid nineteen vaccine race so far the shots authorized or approved around the world have shown strong protection against moderate to severe disease but haven't definitively proven that people who get vaccinated are less likely to spread the covid nineteen virus but the data say. Some experts is confusing. So it's hard to adequately evaluate the companies claim that the shot can actually slow the spread of covid nineteen or not in the study published on the lancet pre print server which means the results have not been peer reviewed a gold standard for ensuring the scientific rigor of the findings astra zeneca and oxford scientists. Report that two doses of their vaccine was overall sixty six point seven percent effective in protecting against covid nineteen disease as part of its analysis. The research team also collected nasal swabs from and unvaccinated study volunteers in the uk every week and tested them for the virus. The scientists found that positive tests were about fifty percent lower among people who got two doses of the vaccine compared to those who weren't vaccinated because people who don't test positive are less likely to spread the virus the researchers extrapolated from those data. The astra zeneca shot can transmission of the covid nineteen virus. However that may be a bit of a stretch says dr carlos. Del rio executive associate dean of emory school of medicine. It's a leap of science. That i think still needs to be proven. He says what they show is that there was either decreased viral shedding or decreased detection a virus however they do not actually show that transmission was decreased. We can say less. Transmission is a possibility but the data on. That needs to come out says del rio. We wanna state the facts and don't want to overstate the facts. That concern was echoed by health officials. In switzerland who decided this week to reject the astra. Zeneca shot the data available and evaluated to date are not yet sufficient for approval. The country's regulatory bodies swiss medic said on february third part of the concern has to do with the fact that the astrazeneca study underwent a number of changes after the phase. Three trial was begun. A fact that some infectious disease expert say makes it difficult to interpret the results for a clinical trial as crucial as this one modifying the setup once it's underway is similar to changing the rules in the middle of a game the study originally set out to investigate a single dose vaccine but was changed to two doses when concurrently conducted early studies show that to set doses of the vaccine produced a stronger immune response further because of what astrazeneca said. Were mistakes in measuring doses. Some people in the study in the uk received a half dose for their first shot and a full dose for the second. one people also got different placebos. Some god benign nina cockles solution and some a saline solution. That could mean nothing. But it's also unusual to have two. Placebos sends that has the potential to introduce con founders into the study and because of limited supplies. Some study participants had to wait more than the three to four weeks originally planned between their doses while others when told they couldn't come back for their second dose at the time they expected chose to simply not get their second shot entirely. Frankly the way they did. These trials was really confusing. Says dr paul off it. Director of the vaccine education center at children's hospital of philadelphia and a member of the us food and drug administration's advisory committee that reviews vaccines for authorization or approval. This is the stuff you figure out in phase one. You don't fool around in phase three and see what works he says. Here's what the researchers report after getting a single shot. Seventy six percent of participants were protected against disease for up to three months. Afterwards from their their levels of antibodies generated against the virus which scientists believe are important to protect against disease began to drop those results suggest that while two doses of the astra. Zeneca vaccine preferable. A single dose could still be useful for about three months in controlling covid. Nineteen that might be especially useful information to act on if vaccines are in. Short supply.
Marjorie Taylor Greene says Republican Party is Trump’s and ‘doesn’t belong to anyone else’
"Jonathan the Republicans in the House of Representatives this week voted in just in the last day voted not to take away committee assignments from Marjorie. Taylor Greene, conspiracy theorist of someone who's made deeply disturbing statements. They left it to the full house, meaning Democrats took that vote, she said. Green said today that it didn't really bother her that committees don't matter. And besides, it's Donald Trump's party anyway. Is she right? Well, she's right in that it's Donald Trump's party. But she's wrong about the fact that it doesn't matter. It does matter. And if she doesn't think committee assignments are being assigned to a committee matters, then she shouldn't be in government. She should resign her seat if she doesn't believe that, sitting on a committee, doing the work of being an elected representative and representing your constituents in Congress. If that doesn't matter, then perhaps you should go back to Georgia. But this is indeed Donald Trump's party, and we saw it with the votes that were taken within the Republican caucus. Marjorie Taylor Greene was able to hold on to her committee seat because the vote was a public vote. Within the caucus, Liz Cheney was able to hold on to her to her leadership post within the Republican caucus because that vote was a secret ballot, and we talked all last week or all this week about how her hold on her leadership post was tenuous because the base was so angry. The caucus was so angry And yet by secret ballot, she won reelection to that leadership post within the caucus overwhelmingly, so this might be Donald Trump's Republican Party. But behind closed doors within the Republican caucus, at least says it's playing out in the house. There are some tensions there.

Greens positions are not her positions, saying many of greens comments are quote beneath the dignity of her office. Herrera Butler is more specific, saying in a statement that despite what Green has claimed School shootings are not false flag events.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from House committees
"News. Last night, House Republican leadership met for hours trying to decide what to do about controversial GOP congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. In the end, the deeply divided house voted 230 to 1 99 to strip her of her committee seats over incendiary remarks she made before being elected in November. Before the vote, Congressman Greene spoke to her colleagues saying it all started after President Trump was elected. She certainly supported him. But she didn't like what she heard about Russian collusion. These things bothered me deeply. And I realized just watching CNN or Fox News. I may not find the truth. And so what I did is I Started looking up things on the Internet, asking questions like most people do everyday use Google And I stumbled across something and this is at the end of 2017 called Q it on Well, these posts were mainly about this Russian collusion, information. Ah, lot of it was some of what I would see on the news at night, and I got very interested in it. So I posted about it on Facebook or read about it. I talked about it. Ask questions about it, and then more information came from it. But you see, here's the problem throughout 2018. Because I was upset about things and didn't trust the government. Really? Because the people here weren't doing the things that I thought they should be doing for us. The things that I just told you I cared about And I want, you know, a lot of Americans don't trust our government, and that's sad. The problem with that is, though, is I was allowed to believe things that weren't true, and I would ask questions questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret. Because if it weren't for the face, book post and comments that I liked and 2018, I wouldn't be standing here today and you couldn't point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong. Because I've lived a very good life that I'm proud of. My family's proud of my husband's proud of my Children are proud of And that's what my district elected me for. So in 20 later in 2018. When I started finding Miss information lies things that were not true in these. Q and on post, I stopped believing it. After Congressman Greene spoke Majority leader Steny Hoyer reference the historic nature of this vote. It was pretty historic when you think about what they did last night, where 11 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to kick her off of those committees. I've had the great honor of serving this body for 40 years. And in that time I have never encountered a situation like the one before us. Now we remember has made such vile and hurtful statements engaged in harassment of colleagues. Expressed support. Political violence. To do nothing. Would be an abdication of our moral responsibility to our colleagues to the house to our values to the truth and to our country. I've heard some condemnation from across the aisle of the contents. Representative Green statements. Some have condemned the white supremacist an anti Semitic things, she said, and posted online, some of condemned the falsehood she shared about 9 11. And the horrific school shootings. But I've heard little from Republicans about the horrific statements made by their colleague making threats of violence against Democratic elected officials. And her threatening conduct towards represented Bush and others. Indeed, Mr Speaker, there seems to be much silence when it comes to her incitement of political violence. Short while ago Representive Green came to this Florida defender indefensible conduct. I heard no apology. She claimed that we are here today only because of something she wrote online before she ever ran for Congress. And if one's moral slate is wiped claim when one becomes a candidate for office Regardless, the conduct we are judging today continued to occur even after represented Green became a candidate and even after she was elected, there is no doubt that if somebody came to the Congress, and it said before they came to gun Congress Am for violent revolution against the government of the United States of America, that your party Would say That's not somebody we want to be associated with. That's not what she said. I do not assert that What should we do Less? Then you did for Steve King for far less toxic language. Let us not do nothing. Let us do the right thing. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer last night before that historic vote 6

The last thing you want to do with a crazy person is give them time to be crazy. That's why they should put her on all the committees. Then you'll never hear from her again. Excuse me when are we going to talk about those jewish spice lasers well no i. We need to discuss the budget for the ashphalt. Acquisitions sharon. Do you have the reports i don't know. Do i have time to report bench. Come on. I didn't say that that was your shiro. So democrats have made their position. Marjorie taylor green clear. But republicans are a different story while some prominent sentences have spoken out against her house. Republicans held a meeting last night with they decided to stick with her or at the very least look the other way house. Republicans hosted a marathon meeting overnight. There's a lot of questions to be answered and we've got to be able to do that in a family meeting to help bring people back together. Marjorie taylor green. Who escaped any punishment yesterday. Very extreme views including endorsing political violence and anti semitic falsehoods sources say green was given a standing ovation from half of the members in the room after she expressed remorse for some of her past comments. I think it'd be helpful if you could hear exactly what she told. All those denouncing q. On i don't know. If i say it right i don't even know what it is Any from the shootings. She said she knew nothing about lasers are all the different things that have been brought up about her. Damn kevin mccarthy. He's a gop. Oh gee i didn't hear shit didn't see shit and i definitely don't know shit she. It's truly amazing that this guy acts like he doesn't even know what cunanan is even after they tried to kill him. I mean most people would have in these google them at that point like eventually carole. Baskin must have been okay. I'll bite. who is this tiger king. Because i mean i should figure this out right and it's not like these guys don't have the time to research conspiracy theories because when it comes to hunt a biden.

The barilla emails decrypted from the delaware laptop have been verified tony blitzkrieg but then asked him about the biggest right-wing cults in the country and they like non qua- hunan man who can keep track of this stuff but to be fair to kevin mccarthy.

"But I think the question is How how Much of that really translates into substantive kind of consequences for Marjorie Taylor Greene. Or whether ultimately it's about bad rhetoric, but then having overall unity of the party Well, I think this actually links to Ah, bigger kind of discussion that you know we're gonna be having in the coming year, which is around redistricting and gerrymandering. And the fact of the matter is you have senators. I mean, I think we could have an entire hour on the Senate and whether it's representative, given how many more you know people Democrats, the 50 Democrats representing think some 40 million more people than the 50 Republicans in the Senate, but it is, I think it has maintained a lot of the more moderate sort of Ideas and you know you have 435 members in Congress. They their views are wildly different. And you do have these districts that have been Jerry Mander and ways in some places. But I think give rise to more extreme viewpoints on by more extreme candidates and people embracing them. So I do think that some of this is just a factor of how much more let's say diverse. You can guess the word McCarthy's caucuses even than the Senate, even though we have seen that become more extreme as well. Um, and I think that this is something to think about. I mean, I was thinking ahead of this conversation mean about California and are there District's here where we could see somebody like that elected and I think that you know, we don't have the same. Um, partly because we have an independent redistricting commission. We just haven't seen district's drawn in the last census in a way that maybe gives his rise to this in the same way that you might in other states. Marshall writes. Marjorie Taylor Greene is of intense interest to all of us because she is the GOP. She is a cancer on the nation. Trump was one person to let me go to her next caller, Jackie and Napa. Hi, Jackie. Goodbye, Harry today. Hmm. Well, good for you for taking my call Carl Michael, and I love KQED. But I just wanted to say I'm not understanding why Marjorie Green is not only stripped of her committee of Simon It also expelled from Congress. I don't know how those voting today cannot remember. January ticks and what happened that day, Five people died. Someone needs to be held responsible, but Marjorie Green is a toxic. Person to have it in our Congress, and I hope they make the right vote today. Greg Bluestein. Jackie's echoing sentiments that I've heard Has the country not learned anything from the insurrection of the consequences of normalizing right wing extremism, and maybe expelling her from the house is the way to get that message across. But But what is Your reaction to this question about because we also had a raised by another commenter in terms of stripping committee assignments. Why not just expel her? Yeah, Zingre eight. It's a great part of the debate because expelling her. It also obviously send even more strident message. But look, stripping over committee assignments is a pretty big step It in some ways is unprecedented in this in this form, and I think to it sends a direct message. To House Republicans who put her on the education committee despite her saying that the shootings at at Parkland were hoaxes..

"W F L A The phone lines are packed. We're gonna go right back to him in a moment again. The numbers 809 69 93 52 809 69 93 52. We're talking about the Republican Party and this Inflection point that it's reached where you have potentially a vote to remove Liz Cheney from leadership at the same time that a large portion of the caucus is giving a pass to Marjorie Taylor Greene. And I think this is real problem for the conservative movement and the way I define the conservative movement, and this is what I want to see from the Republican Party because again, I think it's important to have a strong conservative party in this country to offset What progressives and what the far left want to do. What I want to see. Are conservatives in Congress who can come up with legislation. That, instead of mandating companies to act a certain way can offer up incentives for companies. To make sure that your average American hardworking Person. Benefits from the success of that company. That's not just those top who are reaping the benefits of increased production and profits. Want to conservative party that is fiscally responsible that does take deficits and debt seriously and just doesn't just do lip service. To those issues. I want a conservative party. Who offers up Taymor market based, competitive, based, transparent healthcare system option, as opposed to something like Medicare for all Want a conservative party in this country that strong on national security and serious about it, working with allies using those alliances to push back against adversaries that has a long term strategy for taking on China. That's important that we have that what I'm seeing. Is too much performance of politics. From these people. The loudest voices are not serious people. And just as a response to a previous caller who said Maybe that Marjorie Taylor Greene will learn from all of this won't she's fundraising off all of this, so I know I don't think I don't think she's gonna learn any lessons here. She's literally fundraising off of all of this. And one thing I do need to mention and in this particular conversation. We're really focusing on the Republican Party here. But for Democrats just because I did mention the squad and AOC and Ellen Omar and proceeded to leave and all of them. Democrats have a real problem that they just refused to address with anti Semitism on the left. It's there. It's blatant. And they do nothing about it. They don't push back against it in a serious way. They let these people get away with comments that They would never accept from someone on the right. You said them. There is a real serious problem with anti Semitism on the left, and it's just kind of sitting out there. And the media doesn't pay enough attention to it. And the Democratic Party certainly doesn't pay enough attention to it. 809 69 93 52 is the number of them going to Sean in Tampa now, Sean, thanks for the call. Was going, all right.

"Significant part of the republican base. You mentioned house speaker. Pelosi responded to this. There was news that house minority leader. Kevin mccarthy met with green tuesday night. I'm told from multiple sources that the discussion came up about. Whether he would apologize. She indicated she would not apologize or correct or past remarks house. Republicans will have to vote on removing her from committees on thursday. What of other. Republicans in congressman saying about all. This mccarthy hasn't really tipped his hand but some pressure was put on him by now minority leader in the senate mcconnell. Who released a pretty remarkable statement on monday really railing against marjorie taylor green. Who does not mention by name but you know makes it very clear in the statement that he is referring to her in. It says quote looney lies and conspiracy. Theories are tensor for the republican party and our country. Somebody who suggested that. Perhaps no airplane hit the pentagon nine eleven that horrifying school shootings were pre staged and that the clintons crash j. of key juniors airplane is not living in reality. End quote So this obviously represents a pretty clear effort on behalf of mcconnell's to put some distance between john faction of the republican party and himself and he represents so that you know. Put some pressure on mccarthy to push for perhaps removing marjorie taylor green from the education committee. I mean as outlandish and even scary as all of this is from jewish space lasers to marjorie taylor. Green liking comments about killing her opposition are democrats and republicans. And the country at large stuck with marjorie taylor green. Who was duly elected by the people of georgia's fourteenth congressional district. They probably are. I mean there's a long precedent for members of congress being removed. It takes two thirds vote to expel a member of congress Given that there is not that much interest on the republican side in expelling. Mercury taylor green In terms of her being in congress we probably are stuck with her until twenty. Twenty two at this point As with so many other things in society these days there is a sense in which d platforming or removing. a member of congress from committee is effective You just have to refer back to twenty nineteen When steve king following comments that he made kind of embracing white supremacy in a new york. Times interview was removed from his committees by house. Republican leadership and that culminated in steve king. Losing a primary for his seat in iowa and now he is a former congress person. So you know if there was a move to remove marjorie taylor. Green from committee is that she sits on it could have an impact in terms of her prospects of winning a republican primary next time around but given again that it takes a two thirds vote to expel a member of congress from the house. It seems quite unlikely at this point that there's going to be sufficient. Republicans support for that to be.

"Liz cheney for from leadership Because of her vote to impeach president trump and It's worth pointing out. I think that that these two things together and how they unfold. That could make a statement to a lot of voters about what the republican party stands for. Well that's right and let's hope that where the republicans do not end up here is in Taking action against cheney for what was the vote of conscience and not taking action against green. I mean i think that would be the though the worst ultimate outcome and it would leave I think it would be very sour move in the minds of many. Gop voters look. There's a lot of people who are very unhappy about. Liz cheney's vote But the people that most matter in that are the folks in her district who are going to take a look at that question. A lot of them supported donald trump. They were not happy that she decided to be among the republicans. That voted that way. But that's a that's a question for twenty twenty two in the next election. now look the elected. I mean the leaders of the republican caucus in the house have the ability to to remove people from leadership obviously But it would. It would really be wrong in this situation again. Mostly because they didn't weap- on this vote they didn't send out a command. Say you have to vote a certain way And that you know liz. Cheney violated that they left it to their members to make the decision so now to go back. In retrospect and say you know you were allowed to vote your conscience but we we change our mind and now we're going to strip you of your position it probably isn't the right way to go You know there's certainly a lot of members that would like to see something happen in that regard But the probably the best thing mccarthy can do here just like what you mentioned with. Mitch mcconnell is you come out You know you explain that. The republican party is a party that does allow for diversity of thought with regard to liz cheney impeachment And then you distance it from you know the truly crazy conspiracy theories out there and you just let that stand in. It's on the record and it and it serves to reassure voters and also to to expose democrats. That are running those ads attempting to use this for politics rather than a grown-up serious way.

"One one relevant difference though. It seems to be at least that. Ilhan omar apologized for those statements that that got her into hot water. And here's a piece of that. She said antisemitism is real. And i'm grateful for jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of antisemitic tropes unquote whereas It's a pretty clear contrast marjorie taylor. Green is not backing down at all. She's tweeting the opposite that you'll never back down. here's tweets from this morning saying that The hate america democrats are set out to quote destroy republicans. Your jobs are konomi. Your children's education lives steal our freedoms erase god's creation in the bloodthirsty media are there henchmen Unquote and so kim. It does sort of put kevin mccarthy in a pickle and raise the question of whether republicans should move on their own to away those committee assignments. Yeah that's one of the things that makes this particularly case challenging because It for all of those statements that green is made like you just quoted from most of them are about dem's democrats trying to go after her and The attacks on her she hasn't really addressed her prior statements etc. Some reports of noted that. She's you know scrubbed some of her social media posts etc. It's uncertain if that is a because she's recognized that she was an error. She's changed her views or if she's just trying to do damage control. We just don't know she hasn't really addressed a lot of this And so it does put them in a difficult position But it's at the same time and you just mentioned the ilhan omar thing democrats. It just seems to be an aspect of how they govern these days they they cannot restrain themselves. And they you know they. They have to go so far as a result what you're already seeing a lot of republicans who are reacting to that rather than in and feel increasingly as though if they take action against green that it is somehow succumbing to the pressure tactics From democrats in an attempt and it is attempt. We see it to tar the entire party somehow as a being a extremist and i mean the ads are already being cut. It's it's worth pointing out. And there's a real risk you know beyond the merits of green statements. There's a real political risk here. For republicans they're only houses only. It's a very narrow majority house. Republicans only need to pick up six seats in twenty twenty two to take over and There's already signs..

"There were three near the start of the civil war who were kicked out for disloyalty to the union and then there are a couple of recent more recent cases. One nine hundred eighty and two thousand two Both of those involved lawmakers convicted of crimes like bribery. But in general congress leaves it to voters. iowa congressman. Steve king was not booted despite comments that many of his colleagues deplored and that is an interesting case there. The republicans did remove him from committee assignments But that was done within the republican conference as i understand it not As a a vote by the the opposite party the opposite party majority doing that that was that was republicans doing some discipline on their own yet. We're talking about two separate things here on the spectrum of what could happen to greet. You started out by talking about expelling her. That would be a a huge break with precedent and a very aggressive in part because to expel her from congress would be to override the will of the voters in her district. Who put her in that seat And moreover it would be doing it for things as you mentioned and conduct. That happened before she arrived in congress. And so i mean imagined by the way to if that did become a precedent where you could just start. Willy nilly removing people For anything that might have happened in their past and override voters in a district. The second thing we're talking about is Republican moves or moves By the entire house to strip her of committee assignment and it would be one thing for republicans to now decide that they're going to reassign her or remove her from certain committees. That's entirely within their right to do. Although as i mentioned earlier there are Certain votes that have to be taken in agreements that have to be made is not something that can simply done by minority leader kevin mccarthy unilaterally but for democrats to strip her of committee assignments would be again a huge break in president. And it's kind of concerning because it would essentially be the majority party telling the minority party where they can assign their people and while it might be in one instance in this case you know. I've already heard republicans talking about what that could mean in the future. I mean if you can take that position for one person maybe you can just tell. Every member of the republican party in the minority whip can watch committee. everybody has to sit on And that is just not how the house operates..
