Video Surfaces of QAnon Congresswoman Harassing Parkland Shooting Survivor David Hogg

As you may be aware, a woman named Marjorie Taylor Greene was just elected as Congresswoman of Georgia’s 6th congressional district.
Greene holds extreme and debunked beliefs that have convinced many that she is unfit for office, including considering QAnon conspiracies “worth listening to”, believing California wildfires are being started by space lasers and perpetuating the dangerous lie that certain school shootings are hoaxes.
Recently, an unsettling video surfaced of Greene following and harassing Parkland shooting survivor and gun control activist, David Hogg.
In the video, which she posted to her YouTube page, Greene (who was not an elected official at this point), follows Hogg around with a camera and a microphone, grilling him on his gun-control stance just weeks after he lived through the Parkland shooting that killed 14 of his classmates.
“David, why are you supporting the red-flag laws?” she asks Hogg. “If Scot Peterson, the resource officer at Parkland, had done his job, then Nikolas Cruz wouldn’t have killed anybody in your high school, or at least protected them.”
The harassment that David Hogg, and other survivors have faced, for speaking up about something that very few of us have experienced first hand, is shameful. When did it become okay to harass or insult survivors of horrible acts of violence? Oh wait, it's not okay.— Emily (@MamaEmClark) January 29, 2021
She continues as David Hogg continues to walk on, ignoring her. “Why are you supporting red-flag gun laws that attack our Second Amendment right and why are you using kids as a barrier?” she asks. “Do you not know how to defend your stance?”
As Hogg walks away from her, Greene turns and addresses the camera. “He’s got nothing to say,” she says. “Sad.”
“He has nothing to say because there really isn’t anything to say, you guys. He has nothing to say because he’s paid to do this.”
She then goes on to accuse Hogg of being bankrolled by liberal donors and lament the state of her funding and political connections.
“I have nothing,” she says. “And this guy [David Hogg], with his George Soros funding, and his major liberal funding, has got everything.”
Greene then goes on to attack Hogg’s bravery–literal months after he survived a school shooting. “And he’s a coward. He can’t say one word because he can’t defend his stance.”
The Hogg video isn’t the only controversy Greene has been embroiled in. Recently, CNN uncovered some disturbing comments Greene had previously made on her Facebook page about the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
Greene agreed with a Facebook user who accused the Stoneman Douglas resource officer of being “paid off” to “keep his mouth shut” about the “false flag planned shooting” at the school. To which Greene responded: “Exactly”
To make matters worse, since Greene has been appointed to the House Education and Labor Committee.
Needless to say, people aren’t too happy about a school-shooting conspiracy theorist having the power to make decisions about our children’s education.
Recently, David Hogg himself made his thoughts known about Rep. Greene being appointed to the Education and Labor Committee. “I think it’s absolutely horrific,” he told CNN.
“I think it’s disgusting. [Republicans] need to come out and say ‘I call on Leader McCarthy to come out and condemn the actions of Marjorie Taylor Greene.’ And prove that you’re actually able to put politics aside and work towards unity. Because if there’s anything we should be able to unify around, it’s that our children should not be dying in our schools.
