When asked what her priorities will be when she takes office, Congresswoman-Elect Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.) said Friday that she wants to fight back against Big Tech’s censorship of conservatives and end abortion, because she believes it’s “completely evil” and taxpayer dollars shouldn’t have to pay for it.Congresswoman-Elect Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.) (Screenshot) (CNSNews.com) – When asked what her priorities will be when she takes office, Congresswoman-Elect Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.) said Friday that she wants to fight back against Big Tech’s censorship of conservatives and end abortion, because she believes it’s “completely evil” and taxpayer dollars shouldn’t have to pay for it. “I absolutely support President Trump 100 percent, and he inspired me to run. I got frustrated throughout his presidency watching Big Tech censor conservatives, so I’ll be fighting back on that, because everyone has the freedom of speech,” Greene said in an interview with Fox Business’s “Mornings with Maria Bartiromo.” “You know if my 17-year-old son can run across porn on Twitter, then I believe our conservative voices should be able he to be heard and not censored,” she added. “I’m also 100 percent pro-life, and my biggest goal would be to end abortion in America, because I believe it’s completely evil, and I don't think our tax dollars should ever have to pay for that, and women are sold a terrible lie. Abortion doesn't solve their problems,” the congresswoman-elect said. “I’m also a very proud gun owner, and I had an experience in high school where our school got shut down. We were a gun-free school zone, when one of our schoolmates brought guns to school and took our school hostage. I never want anyone to have to be in that situation, again, and the fear I felt, taught me a very good lesson is our Second Amendment is one of our greatest freedoms we have, and I believe we have to protect it at all costs,” she said. Greene was one of 12 new members of Congress elected to the House. When asked what she thinks is behind this victory, she said it’s because the American people are fed up with the political elite running Washington. “Well, I think what you are seeing with our freshman class, which is very diverse, we are a great class, full of energy passion, love for our country, but I think what you are seeing is the American people are fed up with the political elite politicians that have been running Washington and running this country into the ground,” she said.  “What you are seeing coming into Congress, people like me, a successful business owner in the commercial construction industry, a wife and mom three kids, just a proud American woman, and we are excited to come into Congress and bring our real-life experience and put it to work for the American people, because the way I see it Congress is just broken, and everyone is tired of it,” Greene said. The congresswoman-elect also said that there is no way Georgia will let former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abraams, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Hollywood, and liberal billionaire financier George Soros “steal” the Senate seats of Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) in the runoff elections in January. “I really truly believe Trump won Georgia, and I think there’s a lot that needs to be investigated in our situation, but Georgia right now we look like that redneck family having a big fight at the family reunion, and unfortunately it’s being broadcasted on national television, but I will tell you this,” Greene said. “Georgia is going to pull it together, and there is no way we’re going to let Stacey Abrams, AOC, Chuck Schumer and Hollywood and George Soros come into our state steal our Senate seats, so you’re going to see a big fight coming, and Georgia Republicans are definitely going to win,” she said.
