Yesterday, the congresswoman from Georgia, who boasts about being a “Proud American” and “100% Pro-Life” in her Twitter bio, sounded like she was neither when she asked her 449.2K followers to vote on whether America should have a “national divorce” “by R&D states.”

HuffPost noted that a lot of people on Twitter think Greene is calling for a civil war. Even if it’s “only” a secession she wants, it’s horrifying to see a woman who swore an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution suggesting it should be overturned.
But it’s somewhat reassuring to see the Twitter clapbacks she got:

😂😂😂 “In fact, New York contributes more revenue to the federal budget than any state in the nation. Other blue states, such as New Jersey, comes in second place, Massachusetts third, Connecticut fourth, and Colorado fifth” https://t.co/4T0Iod5XGo

There is no peaceful divorce. Millions of reds live in blue states and vice versa. Do you think a war will not ensue from that?

I wouldn't really call it a divorce. Think of it more as "dumping the body". We'll give you TX on the condition that we never have to hear you refer to each other as "patriots" again. We'll check back on you in 5 yrs to see who has survived the inevitable cannibalism. Deal?

As I write this, “stay together” is beating out “national divorce.”
