Marjorie Taylor Greene Isn't a Fluke—She Might Be the Future

  Marjorie Taylor Greene Isn't a Fluke—She Might Be the Future Marjorie Taylor Greene Isn't a Fluke—She Might Be the FutureIt’s mighty tempting to treat Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene as an aberration in Washington, someone so far out of the American political mainstream that she can and should be ignored. That would be a mistake—for both major political parties.

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene urged her followers on Twitter to sue doctors who don't prescribe ivermectin as a COVID treatment amid the newly detected Omicron variant.

In a Twitter thread on Saturday, Greene accused doctors who refuse to recommend ivermectin to COVID patients of taking part in "politics that is killing people."

Omicron Variant: Germany, Czech Republic Report Suspected Cases After U.K. Confirmation

  Omicron Variant: Germany, Czech Republic Report Suspected Cases After U.K. Confirmation Several countries, including the U.S., Japan and Israel, have announced travel restrictions to avoid the mass spread of the latest COVID variant.Germany's Hessian Ministry for Social Affairs and Integration said Saturday that an individual who traveled to Germany from South Africa is suspected to be infected with the Omicron variant.

"Ivermectin, the 'Wonder drug' from Japan, has a long safe history of saving lives especially among the poor all over the world," Greene claimed on Twitter. "If you had a loved one die from Covid, and they were not allowed to take Ivermectin or monoclonal antibodies, you might have a wrongful death suit in your hands."

The Georgia Republican congresswoman also said that Africans have tried Ivermectin as a way to treat COVID "for decades."

"Many clinical trials have proven Ivermectin to be a very effective safe & cheap treatment against COVID," she alleged.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stated it has not approved Ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of coronavirus.

Greene also added that Africans have high levels of vitamin D and Zinc due to "being outdoors a lot," which she claimed has been effective along with the Ivermectin treatment and "low obesity rates" in the continent.

Also on Twitter, the Georgia congresswoman continued to defend her stance against COVID-related restrictions as she called against vaccine and mask mandates.

Biden addresses nation on omicron variant as some travel bans to US take effect

  Biden addresses nation on omicron variant as some travel bans to US take effect With the omicron variant prompting new travel restrictions this week, President Joe Biden will address the nation on Monday in remarks about the new COVID-19 variant. "While we have said that travel restrictions can slow the speed of omicron, it cannot prevent it. Here's what it does: It gives us time," Biden said in remarks from the White House. "It gives us time to take more actions. To move quicker, to make sure people understand you have to get the vaccine. You have to get the shot. You have to get the booster.

"Treatment & healthy living is the way out of this nightmare, NOT vaccine mandates, masks, & shutdowns," she said while calling on world leaders to "immediately stop their tyrannical forced shutdowns, vaccine mandates, and absurd masking policies."

She also criticized the recent travel restrictions that were imposed on South Africa and seven other nations to control the spread of the Omicron variant.

"With all that is known about COVID and all the covid studies and the known miracle of low deaths in Africa with very little vaccinations, it's no wonder the Tyrants announce a new COVID variant from Africa and apply travel restrictions," she tweeted. "They control you with irrational fear."

Newsweek contacted Greene's office for comments but didn't receive a response by the time of publication.

The World Health Organization (WHO) deemed the Omicron variant as a COVID strain of "concern" after it was first detected in South Africa.

The White House chief medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said on Friday that there is "no indication" that it reached the U.S, but he confirmed that "everything" needs to be done "to protect the American public."
