If you’re on the right and you’ve lost Ben Shapiro, things aren’t looking great.

But that’s what’s now happened to QAnon-adjacent representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, after a frankly shocking post she made on Twitter.

She tweeted about a grocery store that wanted to create badge notifications of employee vaccination status.

And yes, somehow she leapt to making a Holocaust comparison: “Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi’s forced Jewish people to wear a gold star.

“Vaccine passports & mask mandates create discrimination against unvaxxed people who trust their immune systems to a virus that is 99% survivable.”

Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro, who is Jewish, quickly hit back.

He said it was ‘demented nonsense’, adding: “It is nothing like the Holocaust, and any comparison thereto is both insulting and insane.”

She wasn’t deterred, and hit back at him saying: “I never compared it to the Holocaust, only the discrimination against Jews in early Nazi years.

“Stop feeding into the left wing media attacks on me. Everyone should be concerned about the squads support for terrorists and discrimination against unvaxxed people. Why aren’t they?”

She’s also lost Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell too, who said: “Once again an outrageous and reprehensible comment.”

House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy issued a statement saying: “Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling. The Holocaust is the greatest atrocity committed in history. The fact that this needs to be stated today is deeply troubling.”
