CNN: “Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is scrapping the planned launch of her ‘America First’ caucus after receiving blowback from leaders in her own party, despite confirming through a spokesperson on Friday that the caucus would launch. Nick Dyer, Greene’s spokesperson, told CNN in an email on Saturday afternoon the Georgia Republican is not ‘launching anything…The Congresswoman wants to make clear that she is not launching anything. This was an early planning proposal and nothing was agreed to or approved,’ he said in an email to CNN. While referring to a flier promoting the caucus, obtained by Punchbowl News, that used inflammatory rhetoric. Dyer added that ‘she didn’t approve that language and has no plans to launch anything.'”
Greene apparently pulled back on the WASP Caucus idea after rep Kevin McCarthy and several ‘Freedom Caucus’ Republicans chided her for her overt racism and touting of ‘Anglo-Saxon’ values, which is considered a grievous departure from the GOP’s usual policy of covert and coded racism, combined with racial tokenism.
