Oh My. Shall We Pray For Her? 😈

From Mother Jones Daily, an email newsletter that I subscribe to:

You won’t see it in the pages of Mother Jones, but I feel compelled to inform you here that one of the main characters in today’s dystopian circus is experiencing some marital turbulence.

That’s right. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s husband has filed for divorce after 27 years of marriage, calling the union “irretrievably broken.” In a statement to Fox News, the election-denyingwhite power-loving congresswoman from Georgia confirmed the news but felt a need to reaffirm her “firm” belief that “marriage is a wonderful thing.” Sure, darling.

But what really caught my eye in Greene’s statement is the last bit asking for privacy for her family during these trying times. That’s a pretty standard, run-of-the-mill request for someone who lives in the public eye—and I tend to think it’s almost always warranted. But for Greene, it’s a curious thing to suddenly find important while she and her Republican colleagues effectively lead the charge to decimate privacy rights for everyone else. Let’s also remember that Greene is the same woman who harassed David Hogg and literally chased Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez down the halls of Congress.

When it comes to questions of who is afforded these rights in our post-Roe world—and perhaps more importantly, who isn’t—the strangest hypocrisies always seem to emerge. Of course, I’m not advocating that we pry into Greene’s marital challenges; we all have better things to do. But it feels fitting to leave you with this Vanity Fair headline from last year: “If Marjorie Taylor Greene spent more time with polyamorous tantric-sex gurus and less time spending insane conspiracy theories, the country would be better off.”

  1. Twenty-seven years. It took him a while, didn’t it? Well, I hope he has a long, happy after-MTG life. Not that he deserves it, but, well, empathy is a strong emotion. What a twenty-seven years that must have been.

  2. I can cheerfully report that I have never heard of the woman, but the fact is that if we all spent more time with polyamorous tantric-sex gurus the world would probably be a better place, though it would have to be a ‘one in, all in’ sort of arrangement, I suppose.

    • Yes, you are most fortunate that you have not been exposed to this witch-woman. She is evil beyond compare … thus many of us can’t help but chuckle under our breath (or out loud) that not only is she experiencing marital problems, but that it is all being laid bare for the world to see. ##insert evil laughter here##

    • I wouldn’t weep too hard for the fact that she’s been elected. Given how gerrymandered most Congressional districts are, I think just about anyone could find a district to run in and win, as long as they push capitalism, America, and God.

      If anything, be angry that American governments are so complacent about gerrymandering, and that so little is done about it.

  3. Funny how these “family values” / “sanctity of marriage” “Christian Conservatives” consistently lead the most immoral lifestyles imaginable….

    As widely reported….

    QUOTE

    In 2012, Greene, 48, apparently cheated on her husband with polyamorous sex guru Craig Ivey, 42, whom she met at her gym in Alpharetta, Georgia, per court papers previously obtained by the Daily Mail.

    Later that year, Greene reportedly had a longer affair with a gym manager, Justin Tway, 42.

    Greene and her husband wed in 1995 and she went on to have several affairs that were known by others in Alpharetta.

    The congresswoman’s former boss at the CrossFit gym in Alpharetta, Georgia, billionaire Jim Chambers, told the Mail that she’d had affairs when she worked for him in 2012, the first being with “Tantric Warrior” Ivey.

    “I remember one particular pool party where she was lying draped over Craig’s lap drinking a beer.”

    It’s almost as if they don’t actually mean anything they pontificate about regarding family values, the sanctity of marriage, morality or ethics.

    Sad.

    • Thomas, I know what you mean and I think a lot of Nan’s readers would agree. I don’t know if it’s true that a lot of these people lead lives like that or if the media simply relishes stories like that and makes them more prominent because of the shock value. I follow a lot of left leaning blogs and news sources like Joe My God, the Daily Beast, etc. and it seems every time I bring one up there is yet another ultra-religious figure being caught with his/her pants down. Literally.

      I look at it this way: In their public lives these people are obnoxious, dictatorial, self centered, spreaders of lies and gossip, and exhibit a willingness to engage in unethical behavior to advance their own political and/or business agendas. So why should their private lives be any different?

    • They pontificate such moral matters because that’s what their base wants to hear. Plain and simple. And since most of the holy folk don’t read the “trashy” stuff, they actually believe these hypocrites.
