Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene revealed on Monday that, once again, she was swatted, this time on Christmas day, stating this is the eighth time it’s happened. You know, liberals really are a bunch of knuckleheads who lack any sort of semblance of human decency or dignity. If you disagree with a person’s politics, that’s fine. Disagree. Engage in lively, though civil, debate and discussion. You can do that and still exhibit general kindness and respect. Swatting someone is dangerous and could lead to potential fatalities. It’s not funny.
Makes you wonder though, doesn’t it? Are leftists ignorant of the dangers this poses to others or do they simply not care? Or, and this is really dark and sinister, are they actually hoping that something bad happens to the individuals who are victims of this style of pranking?
According to the Daily Wire’s latest report:
The New York Post reported that the incident happened when someone called a suicide hotline and claimed that he shot his girlfriend and said he was threatening to commit suicide.
“I was just swatted,” Greene stated in a post on X. “This is like the 8th time. On Christmas with my family here.”
“My local police are the GREATEST and shouldn’t have to deal with this,” the Georgia congresswoman said. “I appreciate them so much and my family and I are in joyous spirits celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!”
I was just swatted.
This is like the 8th time.
On Christmas with my family here.
My local police are the GREATEST and shouldn’t have to deal with this.
I appreciate them so much and my family and I are in joyous spirits celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!

If you are the kind of person who thinks swatting is just the funniest thing and are engaging in the practice, allow me to inform you that you are a disgusting, disgraceful piece of work. There’s a better word in the English language to describe you than “work,” but I’m committed to keeping this post PG, therefore, I will refrain from its usage.
A spokesperson for the Rome Police Department in Georgia confirmed the incident in a statement that noted “this is not the first incident.”
“As we were preparing to respond, we reached out to her security detail and it was determined that there wasn’t any emergency and that she was safe,” said Kelly Madden, a public information officer for the department. “Our response was actually canceled en route.”
“Swatting” refers to a sinister harassment tactic where someone reports a fake emergency to law enforcement, usually something involving violence, with the hopes that law enforcement responds to the incident with a SWAT team. Swatting incidents have led to people getting killed.
Individuals who are caught in the act of swatting should have the book thrown at them in a court of law. I’m talking 25 years to life in prison. If someone dies as a result of swatting then the death penalty should 100 percent be on the table. If we don’t crack down hard on this kind of behavior and make examples of the morons caught doing it, people will just continue to engage in the practice and others will suffer the consequences for their actions. There must be a zero-tolerance policy put in place.
