'Beyond parody': Critics torch Marjorie Taylor Greene for her latest appeal to Republicans
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is facing backlash over her latest appeal for a "safe space" for Republican lawmakers.
According to HuffPost, the remarks came during Greene's recent appearance on Fox News with Sean Hannity. To some critics, the Georgia lawmaker's remarks come across as contradictory considering Republicans' history of ridiculing "safe spaces."
Speaking to Hannity, the controversial lawmaker made the remarks during a discussion about the concept of a "national divorce."

“We want our own safe space and we deserve it,” Greene told Hannity.
Per the news outlet, Greene has proposed the idea of "separating the country 'by red states and blue states,' with Americans who move from blue to red temporarily stripped of their voting rights."
According to some, the idea sounds eerily similar to secession. Later in the interview, Greene took aim at Democrats.
“We are fed up with Democrat policies, we’re fed up with the woke ideology being shoved down our throat and we’re tired of our children being brainwashed with these ideas,” she ranted. “We want our own safe space and we deserve it.”

The lawmaker claimed she wasn't referring to secession but rather “reducing the size of our federal government, and giving more power and control to our states to be the identity that they want to be, whether it’s blue or red."
"The division in our country has gotten to a dangerous point," Greene said.
But critics have pushed back challenging Greene's remarks.
"Beyond parody," Brian Cohen tweeted. "Marjorie Taylor Greene just said she wants red states to 'divorce' from America because she says Republicans 'want our own safe space and we deserve it.'"
Another user added, "Marjorie Taylor Greene wants her own 'safe space.' Sounds like a snowflake to me."
