Proponents say

•      "Censuring Rep. Taylor Greene is about the health of our democracy and faith in government. Her antisemitic, racist, transphobic rhetoric has no place in the House of Representatives… Unserious elected officials like Taylor Greene make a mockery of our democratic institutions and derail us from the urgent work we’ve been tasked with. This job is about alleviating suffering and supporting our communities, and instead Taylor Greene uses her position as a megaphone for conspiracy theories and hate speech. There must be a counterforce that comes from within Congress. It begins with principled members standing up and saying we have had enough." Source: Rep. Becca Balint, sponsor of the resolution

•      "How many more headlines, citing the words of a sitting Congresswoman must we endure before our leaders use the tools at their disposal to strip her of her power? Nothing about her hatred and belief in dangerous conspiracy theories is subtle. Her racism and Islamophobia before she was elected were not subtle: she said Black people were ‘slaves to the Democratic party’ and should feel ‘proud’ to see Confederate monuments; she said ‘There is an Islamic invasion into our government offices right now’ after the elections of Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar; She called one of the student activists from Parkland high school ‘little Hitler.’... Her antisemitism is not subtle: She has falsely claimed that George Soros, a Holocaust survivor, turned fellow Jews over to the Nazis… She has also promoted a video about the antisemitic 'White Genocide' conspiracy theory when Nick Griffin — a Holocaust denier and member of the fascist British National Party — says an ‘unholy alliance of leftists, capitalists and Zionist supremacists have schemed to promote immigration and miscegenation.’" Source: If Not Now in a letter calling for the expulsion of Rep.
