Like the ad. Need to know more about the candidate. Unless he is squeaky clean the nazi-"patriots" will shoehorn him into a racial stereotype.

A former army sergeant vowing the end the "twisted" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is the latest Democrat to announce their intention to run against her in Georgia's 14th congressional district.

Marcus Flowers, from Bremen, had expressing his intention to go up against Greene in 2022 in recent weeks weeks, and officially declared he is running in a campaign video posted on Monday.

"I've spent my entire career defending the United States and I promise to bring honor, integrity and decency to Congress," Flowers tweeted while sharing the video.

In the video, the army veteran states how he has been in combat zones across the world but "never thought I'd see going here the United States." The video then plays clips of the January 6 attack on the Capitol which was carried out by Donald Trump supporters, far-right extremists and followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory.

The clip highlights Greene's longtime advocacy of QAnon, showing her describing the figure behind the radical movement known as "Q" as a "patriot" in 2017.

Flowers' campaign video also touches on other controversies surrounding the congresswoman, including spouting 9/11 conspiracy theories and backing calls for elected officials to be executed.

"Her twisted conspiracy theories may have made her famous, but haven't done a damn thing to help the people here in our district," Flowers said.

"Now I'm running for congress because Georgians deserve better, better health care, COVID relief and real representation."

He adds: "I've witnessed firsthand the damage done by extremism, radicalism and disinformation. And I won't stand by while people in Washington take us down the same path."

Speaking to The Washington Postlast month, Flowers said seeing the recently unearthed 2019 video of Greene harassing David Hogg, a survivor of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was what prompted him to decide to run against her.

"When I saw what was going on and all these things came to light, I just couldn't hold the powder any longer," Flowers said.

"We need to bring civility back into our political discourse. She does not represent our district. People here are lovely. I mean, yeah, there's an element of extremism here in the district, but it's by far the minority," he added.

Flowers also told 11Alive News that Georgia's 14th congressional district deserves a candidate who "can sit on committees that can help the community," accusing Greene of doing none of these things.

"And I think she'll just continue to become more and more extreme as time goes on," Flowers added.

Flowers contended he had a shot no matter how the district looks. He said the district’s voters didn’t have a true choice last year because the Democratic nominee dropped out shortly before the election.

“I am running to give people a choice,” Flowers said. “A choice between chaos and stability. A choice of someone who thinks Sept. 11 was a hoax, and someone who was serving our country on Sept. 11 and then spent the next 10 years in war zones.”

He said residents in the district, now dotted with billboards calling for Greene to resign, are “hip to her game” and want an effective lawmaker in Congress.

“I’m tired of politicians treating fellow Americans like the enemy just because of different political views,” Flowers said. “I’ve actually seen the enemy up close. When we work together, Americans are the solution, not the problem.”

Will the district vote for a black guy, let alone a Democrat?

R5 We have nowhere to go but up.

Does he have any actual qualifications (we already know she doesn't) besides serving as cannon fodder and then shill for the military-industrial complex while imitating Amy McGrath as a black man in a cowboy hat?

by Anonymousreply 7April 25, 2021 1:08 AM

Dems always put up military vets in deep red states to challenge GOP incumbents because red states often worship the military

Honestly, not really.

But following him on social media reveals his positions on pretty much every issue. Nobody will ever accuse him of being reticent about his opinions (he's left of moderate).

There is another declared candidate who doesn't have any experience either:

I'd vote for Ted Bundy over this crazy bitch

She is ten kinds of crazy

by Anonymousreply 10April 25, 2021 1:40 AM

She’s in it solely for the popularity. She wants to be a right wing star ( like Matt Gaetz did).

She has no intention of actually representing her constituents.

Okay without knowing a damn thing about this guy I have one suggestion. Take that stupid hat off.

And, yea, I know that may be a selling point for his potential voter base. LOL!

Bald as a cueball at :22 and again at 1:10 in the video at R17

Jesus Christ you bitches are tough to please.

I would vote for a chia pet over MTG.

Flowers is saying all the right things for those voters to comprehend and he does it without sounding like a stupid fucking valley girl.

He has a shady past and has tried to hide everything about his past, including when he dropped his wife and mother of his child off at a homeless shelter.

"On July 5, Flowers told Chudinova to accompany him to Walmart. Chudinova, who was not a U.S. citizen and had struggled to adjust to life in this country, took nothing with her. Instead of Walmart, they arrived at a homeless shelter, where Flowers told her to get out of the car. She refused; Flowers called the police. Eventually, Chudinova left the car and went into the shelter, the City Rescue Mission."

What a mess, R21. I didn't know about any of that. What's scary is that it is still not as bad as MTG.

Moreover,, I find TNR to have a tendency towards hyperbole and verbose circular logic

Either way, she fights dirty so I'm sure all of this will come to a head closer to the election and he'll have to address it directly.

[quote] After a series of court battles, Flowers has prevailed over Chudinova. The two are divorced, he retains primary custody of their child, and courts in Oklahoma and Georgia have repeatedly ruled in Flowers’s favor, despite accusations that he threatened to strike his wife, that he failed to help her secure citizenship, and that he refused to repay a $10,000 loan to Chudinova’s mother—all of which Flowers denied. Chudinova claimed at one point that Flowers forced her, under threat of deportation, to sign a divorce agreement; Flowers denied this and also said that he helped Chudinova renew her passport. Chudinova, who did not respond to requests for comment, claimed that she was extorted by one of her lawyers. Some of her court filings appear in broken English and without proper paperwork, which possibly stymied her custody fight. One judge also admonished and ruled against her for telling her daughter that Flowers was a liar, a moment that was recorded.

Yikes, if that story at R21 is true, what a choice. The hat seems normal in Texas; I don't know about Georgia.

MTG is so damn jealous of AOC, fixated.

I remember reading a profile of the Democrat who tried to mount a campaign against MTG. It ended his marriage and she literally ran him out of town.

I understand folks have different opinions, but MTG is a special kind of stupid who has no business in Congress. As he said, she’s not doing anything for the voters, she can’t even work on a committee. It’s all about her own infamy.

I’ll donate a bit to this guy. He’s going to need a mighty war chest to go up against her trollery. .

Unlike MTG, the other two options are not seditionists. Unlike MTG, the other two options don't look like vegetables let too long in your crisper drawer. Unlike MTG, the other two options have a chance of crafting policies that help their district instead of spending their days barking stalking and harassing children and her co-workers, insanely bleating conspiracy theories, and ranting on social media.
