( – On Wednesday, April 17, Rep. Maxwell Frost (D-Fla.) criticized Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) after the latter disavowed white supremacy during a recent hearing. 

During the House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing, Frost argued that it was very “interesting” having Greene disavow white supremacy when in 2022, she had spoken at a function held by white nationalist Nick Fuentes. Frost said Greene had justified her decision by arguing that they would be focused on the people and not their labels. Frost proceeded to say that Greene needed to stop with that “hypocrisy.” 

The Hill reported that Fuentes is known as a holocaust denier and white supremacist. In February 2022, Greene been hosted at his America First Political Action Conference. The two shared the stage for a short amount of time. 

Following the meeting, Greene reportedly did not condemn Fuentes at first, which resulted in criticism from then-Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah). However, months later, she had condemned Fuentes following a meeting between him and former President Donald Trump in Mar-a-Lago. At the time, she claimed that she did not know about the views he held.

Greene has argued that Fuentes’ views have no place in the GOP. She has also said that she does not regret speaking to the kids who were present at the event, but that she does not understand why they follow him. She added that if she had known, she would not have attended his event.
