Georgia's 14th district representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is making headlines again for all the wrong reasons.

According to LGBTQ Nation, Greene announced her backing of H.R. 84, a piece of legislation that would prevent American embassies from flying any flag but the United States flag.

H.R. 84, better known as the "Old Glory Only Act," states that "The Secretary of State shall ensure that no United States diplomatic or consular post flies any flag other than the United States flag over such post".

In a further statement from her office, Greene specifically stated that she "promised to put America first," and that the legislation would "prevent Hate America flags from flying over American embassies," likely referring to Pride flags.

Greene's public prejudice would not be limited to the LGBTQ community, with the statement also managing to invoke Black Live Matter as a terrorist group.

"In the past, rogue members of the State Department flew the flag of the radical Marxist group," Greene said speaking of Black Lives Matter. "We should NOT be flying a flag of a group who wants to erase our history and bring mass destruction to our country through Communism."

The supposed incident that Greene referenced were the American Embassies hanging of Pride and Black Lives Matter Banners in June, which the Trump administration forced the consulate to take down.

Greene is no stranger to controversy, having made headlines in recent weeks for claiming wildfires were started by "Jewish space lasers," and that school shootings were "false flag" government operations to take guns away from private citizens.

These statements from Greene come in the face of growing demands for her to resign from her seat, with 61 house Democrats sponsoring a resolution calling for her removal.
