(ConservativeUnit.com)- Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but a recent visit from the Guam National Guard that was designed to intimidate her and her office staff seems hardly defendable.
This bizarre story stems back to a mistake Rep. Greene made during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference when she mistakenly referred to Guam as a foreign territory.
“I’m a regular person. And I wanted to take my regular-person, normal, everyday American values, which is, we love our country. We believe our hard-earned tax dollars should just go for America, not for what? China, Russia, the Middle East, Guam, whatever, wherever,” Greene said.
In truth, Guam is a U.S. territory…and it’s a fairly easy mistake for someone to make. It may have even simply been a slip of the tongue.
But rep. Michael San Nicolas and a contingent of the Guam National Guard seemed to think that it was worth punishing and intimidating her for.
In a video published on social media, Rep. Nicolas and a swarm of men in military outfits appeared outside of her office, but luckily she wasn’t in.
Rep. Nicolas attempted to brush the whole thing off as a pleasant visit, holding a basket of cookies he intended to give to the Congresswoman, but his motives were pretty clear.
How would President Joe Biden and the Democrats respond if members of the National Guard swarmed the White House every time he made a gaffe? For starters, it would be happening several times per day with his record, but it would also be extremely inappropriate and slammed by the Democrats as threatening.
Nicolas told the Guam Daily Post that he would be “delivering delicious Chamorro Chip Cookies as part of our ongoing outreach to new members to introduce them to our wonderful island of Guam.
The stunt proved hugely unpopular, with Twitter users – including vets – slamming the move as intimidation.
“As a #Vet I’m ashamed,” one user said.
“visited” uh huh
What if they heard another CIVILIAN
utter something they didn’t like?
Going to head to their HOMES &
attack them, also?

Todd Starnes also asked his followers to “imagine the apocalyptic rage of the State Run Media if a Republican lawmaker had dispatched troops to Rep. Maxine Waters’ office.”
So Guam National Guard troops marched on the congressional office of @mtgreenee – at the request of the island’s lone Democrat congressman.
Imagine the apocalyptic rage of the State Run Media if a Republican lawmaker had dispatched troops to Rep. Maxine Waters’ office.
