Margie Greene's Drag-Dressing Boyfriend Misgenders Brittney Griner

Margie Greene's Drag-Dressing Boyfriend Misgenders Brittney Griner

Brian Glenn, the boyfriend of right-wing United States Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), has come under heavy fire after he labeled Women's National Basketball Association star Brittney Griner a man.

Griner returned to the court on Sunday in her first game since her release from a Russian prison last December. Although the Phoenix Mercury narrowly lost to the Chicago Sky, the game was nonetheless emotional for Griner and her teammates.

"Mercury coach Vanessa Nygaard said she was 'tearing up' from Griner's home crowd welcome. But it was back to business quickly. The team had to shift gears and 'lock in,' Griner said," according to USA Today.

But Glenn — the director of programming at the Right Side Broadcasting Network — was incensed that Griner was permitted to play and posted a sexist attack to Twitter on Monday.

"Good Morning to all the men this morning except to #BrittneyGriner (He/Him)," Glenn tweeted. "It shouldn't surprise anyone that a man is now the face of a women's professional basketball league."

Yet that was only half of the drama swirling around Glenn.

On Sunday, user PatriotTakes shared a video of Glenn dressed in drag promoting Ed Howard, Jaston Williams, and Joe Sears' comedic play, A Tuna Christmas.

"I could tell you I don't think a lot — I think a lot of people are up now. They're all #Iamup. Of course, come in, check it out here. So I saw 'em Saturday. I'm kicking these shoes off, but I may keep the pantyhose on," Glenn jokes. "It does feel kind of good. I'm not gonna pee in 'em, I promise. Send it back to the studio."

The backlash against Glenn was immense.

Keith Olbermann: "She's not a man. You're not a man."

FeistyKiwi: "Good lawd, another day obsessing about other people's sexuality."

Gören Semb: "Sir, you're disgusting, but on the bright side, you're also pathetic."

Eric Owens: "'It's different when we dress up in women's clothes.'"

Kevin D.: "Brian Glenn (she/her)."

Jo: "Reporting this for intentional misgendering."

Jo: "Boy this guy sure does love him some drag, huh?"

Robb Edwards: "Cringeworthy but in keeping with the GOP's standards."

Rev Dave: "Marge better keep a lock on her lingerie drawer, except for those special playtimes w/ Brianna."

Dronetek Media: "Are they stripping for kids? That part seems to be missing."

murphyb849: "There is always a video somewhere."

The Mrs. Gravely: "Ole Marge is gonna get all hot and bothered over this."

Indeed she did.

"I'm literally lol'ing," Greene snarled. "@brianglenntv dressed in drag for morning news in Dallas years ago reporting on an upcoming local theatre production and the morons over at Patriot Takes think this is an attack. Brian loves the throwback and is reposting. The left is so stupid."

Greene's defense sparked even greater rancor.

David Weissman: "Actually @patriottakes is pointing out your hypocrisy but you're too stupid to realize that."

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: "Your party is currently passing laws to make this exact thing illegal."

JulieChism: "This isn't an attack, we just think you're a f**king hypocrite and an idi0t."

Jo: "Why is it ok for your boy toy to dress in drag but not for anyone else?"

Glenn C.: "Your 'alfa male' boyfriend likes wearing pantyhose, no biggie."

Cheesy Gordita Brett: "'It's different when we do it.' - Republicans"

'Disgusting Filth': Outrage Erupts Over Margie's Mean Attack On Stepmoms

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) says that women who are stepmothers are not real mothers, because they are not a child’s “biological” parent.

The Georgia Republican delivered that claim during a congressional hearing on Wednesday to a woman who happens to be the head of the nation’s second-largest teachers’ union, and who also happens to be a lesbian: Randi Weingarten.

“Miss Weingarten,” Rep. Greene asked, “Are you a mother?”

“I am a mother by marriage,” Weingarten replied. “And my wife is here with me. So I’m really glad that she’s here.”

“By marriage,” Greene noted. “I see.”

During her allotted five minutes of questioning, Greene spent nearly the entire time not asking questions, but attacking Weingarten over a wide range of topics. Among them, Weingarten tweeting she supported Twitter suspending Greene for spreading COVID misinformation, which Greene tried to imply meant Weingarten did not support the First Amendment. She also railed against the teachers’ union chief for submitting a plan to the CDC on how to protect students, teachers, and staff during the COVID crisis.

But she began and ended her time belittling Weingarten’s motherhood.

Greene sternly told Weingarten, “you have no business advising the CDC what the medical guidelines were for school closures, because now we have a nation of schoolchildren who suffered because of it. The problem is people like you need to admit that you’re just a political activist. Not a teacher, not a mother, and not a medical doctor.”

Weingarten, who never professed to be a medical doctor, is both a mother and a teacher.

Many over the past 24 hours have taken Greene’s attack as an attack on parents who adopt, and on adopted children.

They are well within their rights to do so.

In July 0f 2022, just after the U.S. Supreme Court revoked a woman’s right to choose – a move supported by the right who insisted adoption is the answer to unwanted pregnancies – Greene referred to adoptive parents as “fake,” as Newsweek reported.

“Children are in the greatest danger in America today because traditional family values are being destroyed—the idea that mom and dad together, not fake mom and fake dad, but the biological mom and biological dad, can raise their children together and do what’s right for their children,” she said.

Greene at the time was blasted by adopted children and their parents on social media.

“I don’t tweet politics nor usually care about the rantings of a moron. But as part of a family where we are blessed to have adopted members, her referring to non-biological parents as ‘fake mom and fake dad’ is too offensive to ignore,” wrote Philadelphia sports radio host Glen Macnow, as Newsweek noted.

And now, Greene is again declaring non-biological parents not real parents – and not parents at all.

Rep. Maxwell Frost (D-FL) unleashed on his Republican colleague.

“My mom and dad adopted me at birth and they are my parents. Fuck you and your bigoted questions,” he tweeted at Rep. Greene.

“Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn’t think you’re a mother if you adopt children. I am adopted and this hurts. I love my mom,” tweeted a political science student.

“I was adopted at 3 days old. I only have one Mother as far I’m concerned. She raised me, nurtured me & is my best friend to this day. She is 94 & the roles have reversed. Giving birth alone does not make you a mother. I am highly offended by Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ignorance,” wrote a Twitter user.

“As the single mother of adopted daughters, yet one more reason to find Marjorie Taylor Greene a poor excuse for a human being,” wrote another.

“If my mother were alive today, she’d cross the street twice to kick Marjorie ‘Tuesday’ Green’s ass. She was not a ‘biological’ mother. Rather, she was a loving woman who adopted my brother and I, gave us a home & a life. That’s a mother,” wrote a tech CEO.

“My mom died last year. She adopted me when I was six months old. She wasn’t perfect, but she was the best parent anyone could have asked for. She was my mom. Marjorie Taylor Greene can unkindly go fuck herself,” tweeted a photographer.

“Marjorie Taylor Greene, I would like to let you know as an adopted child I think that you are a piece of crap,” wrote another Twitter user.

“I was adopted and raised by the two most amazing people I could have been,” wrote another Twitter user. “Marjorie Taylor Greene is … the worst human being on Congress right now, which is saying something. Every word she utters offends me as a human being and as an American. She must be removed!!”

Many more, who did not identify themselves as adopted children or adoptive parents, also blasted Greene.

Among them, MSNBC anchor and legal analyst Katie Phang, who tweeted: “What disgusting filth from MTG. It’s unconscionable to go after amazing people like @rweingarten and countless others who provide unconditional love and support for their children, regardless of whether they’re the biological parents.”

Also, political commentator and think tank CEO Sally Kohn, who posted a video clip of Greene and wrote: “Here is the moment where Marjorie Taylor Greene suggested that Randi Weingarten — and EVERYONE who has step children or adopted children — are not real parents. Just nasty and offensive — not to mention wrong!”

Rambunctious Margie Gets Muzzled -- By Fellow Republicans (VIDEO)

Today in political theater gone wrong, we have performance artist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). On Wednesday, during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing, Greene went too far with her vitriol even for Republicans when she impugned Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by calling him “a liar.”

Greene’s five-minute tirade began against both China and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), the latter whom she slandered by claiming he had a “sexual relationship with a Chinese spy—and everyone knows it.” Democratic Rep. Daniel Goldman of New York moved to have Greene’s words taken down. But after the Republicans on the committee voted to table the motion, Greene continued on. And she did not stop being offensive for the full five minutes.

The tirade ended with her being muzzled for the remainder of the hearing.

When she finally got around to (sort of) asking Mayorkas a question, it came in a high-octane run of, “Where China is poisoning America’s children, poisoning our teenagers, poisoning our young people, how long are you going to let this go on?” Mayorkas attempted to answer, saying that nobody was “letting this go on,” when Greene interrupted him, saying, “No! I reclaim my time! You’re a liar!”

Greene’s bile, the concentration of everything the Republican Party stands for at this point, is a whole lot harder to take when meeting in the more intimate space of a committee hearing. Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi immediately moved to have Greene’s words “taken down.”

At this point the Republican chairman of the committee, Mark Green, made his ruling:

“It’s pretty clear that the rules state that you cannot impugn someone’s character. Identifying or calling someone a liar is unacceptable in this committee; and I make the ruling that we strike those words.”

Now, this is where it became a special kind of awesome. Goldman asked if the ruling was the one that Thompson asked for: to have the words “taken down,” versus having them “stricken” from the record. The distinction is an important one because having the words “taken down” also means the speaker—in this case the Tasmanian devil from Georgia—would no longer be recognized in the hearing.

Possibly realizing she was about to be shut down completely, Greene attempted one of her patented make-believe moves, saying, “Point of personal inquiry,” to which Goldman responded, “There’s no such thing.” Teehee.

The fact that Greene’s existence in all settings is a waste of space is nothing new. But in this circumstance she not only effectively nullified her entire political theater performance, she nullified her party’s own usual political theater performances by forcing them to punish her instead of spending their time blaming President Joe Biden for fentanyl.

After a moment of conferring, Green broke the news that her words would be struck from the public record and “the gentlelady is no longer recognized.” The Republicans then decided the only win they could get was to say that Greene’s pretty slanderous attack on Swalwell didn’t break the rules.

Goldman gave a clear response to that, saying out loud that Greene’s statement was “bullshit.”
