Liz Cheney slams Marjorie Taylor Greene’s call for red states to secede from blue states: ‘You swore an oath to defend the Constitution’

In a post to Twitter this President’s Day, Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called for red states in the U.S. to “separate” from blue states and for shrinking the federal government.

“We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government,” Greene wrote. “Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”

As NBC News points out, Greene isn’t the first Republican to call for secession. “A June 2021 poll by Bright Line Watch and YouGov found that 66% of Southern Republicans supported leaving the U.S. and forming a new country,” NBC News reported. “Support was also high among Democrats in the West, where 47% supported a division.”

At least one of Greene’s fellow Republicans isn’t jumping on the secession bandwagon, namely former Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney.

“Let’s review some of the governing principles of America, @mtgreenee: Our country is governed by the Constitution,” Cheney tweeted in response to Greene.

“You swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution,” Cheney added.
