(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., was “swatted” by a transgender activist earlier this week due to her view that transgenderism is not good, the Rome News Tribune reported.
“Swatting” is when someone calls emergency services to a person’s home by reporting a false crime.
Last night, I was swatted just after 1 am.
I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County.
More details to come.

“Last night, I was swatted just after 1 a.m. I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County,” Greene wrote.
“After we cleared the call and went back in service, Rome-Floyd 911 received a call from the suspect, claiming responsibility for the incident and explaining his/her motives,” the report stated.
“It was a computer generated voice. They explained they were upset about Ms. Greene’s stance on ‘trans-gender youth’s rights,’ and stated they were trying to ‘swat’ her.”
The attack comes in the wake of Greene’s recently-introduced legislation that would protect minors from predatory gender reassignment surgeries by making them illegal.
Doctors who failed to follow the law would receive a Class C felony, a fine of up to $250,000 and 25 years in prison.

“They think that they’re going to scare me and intimidate me into not pushing my legislation and protecting kids, but I’m gonna tell you Alex, I am more committed to it than ever before,” Greene said.
According to Greene’s spokesman Nick Dyer, the perpetrator will face full consequences for the politically charged attack.
“Right now, Congresswoman Greene’s safety is our number one concern,” he said.
“Late last night, she was a victim of a political attack on her family and home. Whoever committed this violent crime will face the full extent of the law.”
