Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene made it clear she opposes mask mandates as well as mandatory vaccinations. She called for Dr. Anthony Fauci to be fired as well.

“I’m completely against masks, they don’t work, they’re not stopping the spread of COVID and I support any governor or anyone that’s saying enough with mask mandates,” she said. “Vaccines are failing. The research is showing it. The Pfizer vaccine is now down to 40 percent effectiveness and that’s coming from studies right here in the United States and a recent study right out of Israel. But yet they’re pushing a booster. I think what we really need to do is we need to fire Dr. Fauci and he should not be leading the policy in this country and controlling Americans’ lives.”

Greene cautioned against FDA approval for the vaccines.

“We should have agencies approve things that work,” she said. “And when we have a Pfizer vaccine that studies are showing that it’s only around 40 percent effective, I don’t see how that’s a vaccine that can be approved to prevent the spread of COVID.”

Greene went a step further and said people who are vaccinated are spreading COVID. She discussed a recent cruise for vaccinated-only customers where people contracted COVID.

“Why would the FDA approve a vaccine that’s failing,” she asked. “People are getting COVID and spreading COVID. I think that’s the question for the FDA — why would they approve that?”

Ultimately vaccine decisions must be about choice, she added, saying her parents were vaccinated as her late father battled cancer and they were vaccinated so they could leave the house.

“But for most of the healthy, adult population, especially children in school, athletes and our military members, I think that should absolutely be a choice and they should never be forced into taking a vaccine that they don’t want to take — especially when their bodies are healthy enough and they want to trust their immune system to survive it.”

Greene said more than 34 million Americans have survived COVID and that number isn’t reported near enough.
