Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks the Texas jury that handed down a nearly $50 million judgment against “Infowars” host Alex Jones last week went a little hard on the far-wing conspiracist who — like Greene — has antagonized people victimized by school shootings.
The bombastic congresswoman from Georgia expressed her concerns during a Sunday chat with MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.
“He built it on a lot of other news,” Greene claimed on the Lindell’s streaming channel Sunday. “And Alex Jones has been right pretty much most of the time.”
Greene worried the massive ruling against Jones — still facing penalties from two other Sandy Hook-related suits in which he defaulted — could crush the “Infowars” program where she has been a guest.
Before going into Congress in 2021, Greene contended the 2018 mass shooting that left 17 people dead at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was a “false flag” meant to garner sympathy for gun control legislation.
Video of Greene menacing survivor David Hogg as he tried to walk away from her in 2020 shows the 48-year-old lawmaker telling the then-teenager that she carries a gun, then accused him of threatening her Second Amendment rights.
Jones made similar “false flag” allegations about the 2012 massacre at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 children and six adults were murdered by a lone gunman.
During testimony last week, Neil Heslin, whose 6-year-old son Jesse Lewis was killed at Sandy Hook, told the the Austin, Texas, jury that ruled against Jones that lies spread by him and his followers made their lives a “living hell.”

Jones and Greene have both confessed they now think school shootings are real. The pair were also Sept. 11 skeptics.
Shortly before having her committee assignments stripped away weeks after taking office in 2021, Greene confessed on the Congress floor she now believes the 2001 terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people also “absolutely happened.”
She also walked back her suggestion that wildfires may be caused by space lasers operated by a prominent Jewish banking family.
Like Lindell, Green and Jones have also falsely insisted the presidential election lost by Donald Trump was some sort of hoax.
Jones has encouraged Greene to run for president on “Infowars.” He claims she could give Trump, or potential GOP candidate Ron DeSantis of Florida, a good fight.
“I’m serious, you’re just as smart or smarter than both of them,” Jones said.
Greene reportedly told Fox News Digital last week that a run at the White House is among the things “I’d definitely be interested in.”
