OPINION: This article contains commentary which may reflect the author's opinion


US Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene made a video go viral on Friday while she walked along a sidewalk in Washington DC, near the US Capitol, and was seen being swarmed by gun control activists who were harassing the Congresswoman.

Green walked along with media watching and a member of her staff trying to protect her from the highly aggressive paid political operatives.

A shocking moment is seen when one of the activists, who was mocking her, stepped in front of Green numerous times and slowed down so as to almost block Greene from proceeding at the pace she was walking.

It looked as if the Congresswoman was being intimidated into breaking her stride and possibly stopping after being blocked, while other activists, one large man stood over Greene and mocked her and raised his voice at her.

Greene didn’t seem at all phased and walked briskly, refusing to slow down her pace as other people moved all around her, either videotaping her or trying to taunt her.

The left freakout over the actions of MTG  to the activist who was trying to stop as they claimed she “struck the Gen Z gun control activist with her foot after the girl walked in front of her at Capitol.”

At one point, an activist walks in front of her, and Greene kicks the 18-year-old to get her out of the way.

‘Excuse me,’ Greene says, appearing to step on Pecora’s heel. ‘Excuse me,’ she says again, appearing to take aim at the back of Pecora’s leg,” the Daily Mail reported.

‘Did she literally just tweet out the video of her kicking me?’ 18 year old Marianna Pecora wrote on Twitter when Greene posted the exchange. Greene blasted the teenager on Twitter while the heckler threatened legal action,”

The heckling Gen Z activist was identified as Pecora from her posts and she was joined by other rude and aggressive activists from a group called Voters of Tomorrow.

‘How does the second amendment prevent gun violence?’  teenage Pecora, deputy communications director of the radical far left/progressive Communist group, says, chuckling as she films Greene’s reaction, clearly intent on being bratty and trying to trigger Greene.

‘Excuse me,’ Greene says, appearing to step on Pecora’s heel. ‘Excuse me,’ she says again, appearing to take aim at the back of Pecora’s leg. ‘Get out of the way, excuse me.’

‘You can’t block members of Congress,’ Greene’s communications director Nick Dyer says.

The activists said they are considering legal action.

WATCH:

“These foolish cowards want the government to take away guns & the rights of parents to defend their children in schools. You have to be an idiot to think gun control will create a utopian society where criminals disarm themselves and obey the law. “Gun-free” zones kill people,” Green wrote with the footage.

‘To answer the most prevalent question about pressing charges: we’re talking to our legal team and keeping our options open,’ Meyer tweeted in a post retweeted by Pecora.

Engaging with a different protester, Santiago Meyer, Greene says ‘You’re a coward is what you are!”Go move to another country where they take away your guns,’ Greene says repeatedly

‘Go move to another country where they take away your guns,’ Greene says repeatedly.

‘You have a free choice go somewhere else we have the Second Amendment here. I’ll always defend myself, I’ll defend my children, I’ll defend my home ,especially from people like you.’

Green called out one of the activists, who is the founder of the group, on her Twitter timeline :

“Just like I said, he’s a paid political activist who just so happens to be blessed to have immigrated to our great country. He should respect and be grateful for American freedoms, like our 2A, instead of trying to destroy them. Then, if he doesn’t like it, he can go back.”

According to the voice of tomorrow website:

Voters of Tomorrow was founded in 2019 by 17-year-old Santiago Mayer, an immigrant from Mexico. Santiago noticed a lack of political engagement at his high school and decided to tackle that by creating a new organization for young people, by young people.

During the 2020 election, we delivered our first major initiative, “Prom At The Polls.” The campaign registered thousands of voters and reached tens of millions of people through a series of organic social media trends and digitally organized events.

What We Do

While many groups expose young people to dangerous ideas, there are few pro-democracy organizations countering their efforts. Voters of Tomorrow is filling that void with effective organizing and messaging online and on campuses to encourage young people to become civically engaged.

We carry out research to fully understand Gen Z’s position on a range of issues, then use this data to guide our public and behind-the-scenes advocacy campaigns. Additionally, we develop and promote initiatives to encourage Gen Z to vote for pro-democracy candidates.

Since its founding, the Voters of Tomorrow team has grown to include a national volunteer staff of dozens of young political strategists, communicators, and policy-wonks. Additional teams of Gen Z organizers lead state efforts through the organization’s chapters program.

Where We’re Going

We’re turning the students of today into the leaders of tomorrow. With digital campaigns, on-campus organizing, and candidate scorecards, Voters of Tomorrow will be the youth vote power player in the 2022 midterm elections and beyond.

Wonder if this is the same group that has caused three separate swatting episodes on the congresswoman’s home?
