Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is not pleased with her Republican lawmakers who are supporting the U.S. Supreme Court nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson.

On Monday, April 4, the conspiracy-driven lawmaker took to Twitter with an attack aimed at Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and Mitt Romney (R-Utah) for siding with Democratic lawmakers in support of Jackson being confirmed as the next SCOTUS justice.

According to Greene, the lawmakers' support of Jackson suggests they are "pro-pedophile." "Murkowski, Collins, and Romney are pro-pedophile," Greene tweeted. "They just voted for #KBJ."

So where did Greene's attack come from? According to Rolling Stone, it's based on another conspiracy.

Per Rolling Stone: "The idea that Jackson is sympathetic to pedophiles is a conspiracy theory popularized by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), based in bad faith on Jackson straying from sentencing guidelines in some child pornography cases."

Greene' latest Twitter attack leveled toward Republican lawmakers comes shortly she criticized Disney and made similar critical remarks toward the multinational entertainment conglomerate.

“The immoral, disgusting, evil left is attacking our children,” Greene said recently. “They are child predators. I’m not kidding you. Look at what is happening at Disney right now. Disney wants to completely take your children and they want to indoctrinate them into sexual, immoral filth.”

Last week, Greene appeared on InfoWars with host Alex Jones where she said, “It’s hard to believe that Disney, Walt Disney, the Walt Disney Company, would be the very place that this is happening,” Greene said. That interview was marketed with a teaser headline that read, “We Must Stop Child Predators From Sexualizing Our Kids.”

“This is supposed to be the happiest place on Earth, a place where innocence is celebrated, but it seems to be the place where innocence is actually under attack,” Greene continued, adding that Disney must “pay a serious price.”

Although Greene has publicly condemned Disney, Insider has revealed the controversial lawmaker owns nearly $45,000 in Disney stock.
