Marjorie Taylor Greene has released her latest campaign video, and its exactly as wild as you're probably expecting it to be.
The controversial congresswoman - who remains a devoted backer of disgraced former President Donald Trump and has continued to promote conspiracy theories related to everything from Covid-19 to mass school shootings even while serving in the House of Representative - is up for re-election in the upcoming November midterms, and is hitting the campaign trial in an effort to remind voters of her priorities.
Those priorities, according to a new Linkin Park-soundtracked video which features soundbites from Donald Trump, include promoting conspiracies about 'globalist elites,' attacking President Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders, and claiming that 'neo-liberals' are 'beating the drums of war.'
In one section of the clip, Greene is shown driving to an open field, before getting out of her car and shooting a gun at targets captioned 'open borders,' 'green new deal' and 'gun control,' before the grand finale, which sees her blow up a car labelled 'socialism' in a recycled clip first released back in September which saw her pledge to 'blow away the Democrats’ socialist agenda.'
The clip ends with footage of Trump introducing Greene at a rally held in her home state of Georgia, where he tells the crowd 'oh boy, I don't want to mess with her.'
The whole clip plays to a backing track of a cinematic cover of Linkin Park's In The End, and it's not escaped people's attention that the band isn't likely to be too happy with having one of their tracks used to promote one of America's most controversial right wing figures.
Linkin Park has repeatedly spoken out against having their songs used by Trump and his followers, tweeting in 2020 'Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music. A cease and desist has been issued.'
Before his death, the band's lead singer Chester Bennington made his feelings on Trump perfectly clear, calling the then-President 'a greater threat to the USA than terrorism.'
'We have to take back our voices and stand for what we believe in,' he tweeted in 2017.
Greene's video has since been taken down from Twitter, with the platform saying it had disabled the clip following a report by the copyright owner.
