This is not the first time Greene has faced a backlash. She has occasionally made offensive statements, pushing conspiracy theories. And while she argued against the passage of the Equality Act in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, she made inflammatory remarks.
“It’s one thing to stop discrimination against one class of people, but it’s another to completely violate and destroy the rights of girls and women to do so,” Greene said.
Greene, who was removed from her committee assignments in the House over her statements and social media posts supporting false conspiracies, then put up her sign, which reads: “There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE. Trust The Science!”
“Our neighbor, @RepMarieNewman, wants to pass the so-called ‘Equality’ Act to destroy women’s rights and religious freedoms. Thought we’d put up ours so she can look at it every time she opens her door,” Greene tweeted.
Greene drew backlash on social media, including from Republican Rep Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.
“This is sad and I’m sorry this happened. Rep. Newman’s daughter is transgender, and this video and tweet represent the hate and fame-driven politics of self-promotion at all evil costs,” Kinzinger tweeted in response to Greene’s video.

Progressive Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., slammed Greene for her “bigotry.”
“Protections & rights for transgender folks is literally a life or death issue,” Tlaib tweeted. “To have a congressperson deny their existence & deny their need for rights is cruel and should not be what government is about.”
“I hung mine up for Trans Remembrance Day in 2019 and it’s stayed up since. @RepMTG should probably avoid the Rayburn building too if she doesn’t want to see another “disgusting” symbol of love and acceptance,” tweeted Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va.
