Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a live wire, to put it mildly. She’s clashed with her colleagues more than once, and Snopes is reporting that she once followed and shouted at Parkland mass shooting survivor and gun control activist (and liberal pillow magnate) David Hogg. This fact-check was originally published at the end of January, but for some reason, Snopes is tweeting it today. Probably because of this:
Marjorie Traitor Greene followed AOC in the halls of Congress yelling abuse just as she followed mass shooting survivor David Hogg. Who thinks it’s past time for her to be expelled from the House?

Anyways, it’s true:

Dan MacGuill reports:
On Jan. 27, social media users began sharing a video which they described as showing Greene harassing or confronting David Hogg, a former Stoneman Douglas High School student and survivor of the mass shooting there, who has gone on to become a gun control activist. Since 2018, Hogg has been a frequent target of disinformation and baseless conspiracy theories for his role as a public advocate on behalf of those killed in the Parkland massacre.
MacGuill adds that Greene posted the video to her own YouTube account in January 2020, and that at the time of the confrontation, Hogg was 18 years old.
Likely: Many who voted for her _thoroughly_ approve.

And? Is David Hogg in some sort of protected class?

Good, Hogg is a grifter
— Kurt (@Kurt1775) May 13, 2021
Because he's a do nothing, contributes nothing meaningful to society. I bet most of the idiots at snope pre-ordered pillows from him.
— red (@redGa12) May 13, 2021
Good. He’s a twat.
— Politikitteh (@RabidWMRWfan) May 13, 2021
Does being a “victim” mean that he gets to say stupid things and not get called out for them?
— Strongest5 (@Strongest52) May 13, 2021
He wasn’t even there. Fact check that.
— PrezElectAbbreviated (@Abbreviated) May 13, 2021
I wasn't there either, does that make ME a survivor, too..?
— Rich Persinger (@RichLP68) May 13, 2021
Yeah, he survived the bike ride back to school after the shooting happened.
— M.C (@CommonYourSense) May 13, 2021
Now we want to see the video.
