Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) doubled down on her comments about being a Christian nationalist at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas on Friday.
Last month, the Republican stated, “We need to be the party of nationalism and I’m a Christian, and I say it proudly, we should be Christian nationalists.”
Around that time, a meme circulated online purported to show Greene quoting Adolf Hitler speaking about Nazism being a Christian movement. It wasn’t true, as Greene did not quote the Nazi dictator.
On Friday, Greene was asked for her reaction to the matter at CPAC.
“I take that very seriously,” she replied. “Ever since I’ve become a member of Congress, I’ve been the most attacked member of Congress in United States history and I’m appalled by it.”
The congresswoman then addressed the content of her comments about Christian nationalism.
“But when I said that I’m a Christian nationalist, I have nothing to be ashamed of, because that’s what most Americans are,” Greene said. “We’re proud of our faith and we love our country. And that will make American great again. When we lean into biblical principles, you know, is there anything wrong with loving God and loving others? No.”
Greene’s claim that “most” Americans are Christian nationalists simply has no foundation.
She added, “So, I don’t back down from those comments, but I denounce the lying media.”
As an ideology, Christian nationalism seeks to “promote theocratic policies” and the commingling of government and the Christian religion. It is a doctrine that is diametrically opposed to the country’s founding principles.

Former CNN anchor Felicia Taylor arrested after hit-and-run car crash
A former CNN anchor has been arrested after an alleged hit-and-run crash.
Ex-CNN anchor Felicia Taylor has been booked over an alleged car crash in Palm Beach, Florida, on July 28.
Taylor reportedly hit the back of a black Ford that was stopped for traffic with her white Mercedes. Palm Beach police said a 24-year-old man driving the Ford suffered injuries to his back, neck, and jaw as a result of the impact.
The 57-year-old ex-anchor was seen "fleeing the scene of the accident without rendering aid or stopping to provide information," according to the police report. Afterward, she drove by the scene several times with her damaged car before a police officer pulled her over.

The arresting officer said Taylor admitted her culpability in the crash, but assured him it was "not a big deal." Taylor insisted on verifying the other driver's injuries, claiming he was OK. She also told the officer it's "hard to be a good person."
Taylor was allegedly on her way from a hotel, which police verified was closed. Then, she claimed she came from a restaurant in the nearby Royal Poinciana Plaza, but again, police could not confirm any restaurant that recalled her as a guest.
Police arrested Taylor and booked her at Palm Beach County Jail under charges of careless driving and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury. Taylor made her $3,000 bail and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

In 2015, Taylor was charged with an aggravated DWI in the Hamptons in New York. At the time, she was three times over the legal limit.
There was a wine bottle found in Taylor's car on July 28, but it was out of reach, according to officers.Florida Media CNN News Auto Safety Crime
