EXCLUSIVE — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who recently gave the Catholic Church hell for not being able to protect children against pedophiles, has at least one person in her corner with a history of making incendiary remarks, including one that appeared to condone pedophilia. 

On Sunday, Milo Yiannopoulos was pictured standing backstage with Nick Dyer, Greene's current communications director, and Joe Proenza, Greene's reelection campaign manager. 

All three men were huddling behind the curtains while Greene was onstage debating five GOP challengers vying to unseat her in Georgia's Republican primary on May 24.


Yiannopoulos resigned from Breitbart News in 2017 when he caused an uproar after remarks he made in 2015 and 2016 came to light in which he appeared to defend sexual relationships between adults and "younger boys" in their teens.

"Some of those relationships between younger boys and older men, the sort of coming-of-age relationships, the relationships in which those older men help those young boys to discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable and, sort of, a rock where they can't speak to their parents," he said on the January 2016 episode of the Drunken Peasants podcast.

The fact that Greene is now actively seeking help from a man with a history of these remarks wasn't lost on the candidates. 

"Marjorie Taylor Greene is the epitome of an evil hypocrite," Jake Monseen, the campaign manager of Jennifer Strahan, who is running against Greene in the primary, told the Washington Examiner

In a recent interview with Church Militant, Greene said she believes the Roman Catholic Church is ruled by Satan, called bishops "satanic," and accused them of "destroying the nation" by being sympathetic to illegal immigrants. 

On Thursday, Greene made headlines after claiming she would like to invite Elon Musk, who is slated to buy Twitter for $44 billion, to be part of "a round table of all the most brilliant people who have been unjustly banned" from the social media site, including Yiannopoulos and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

"We don't need to be told what we can and can't say online by nutcases in San Francisco or other places," she said. 

There are five Republican challengers vying to take the GOP nomination away from Greene in Georgia's May 24 primary election. 

Greene is seeking a second term in the district, which consists of 10 counties in northwest Georgia and part of Cobb County. The district is strongly conservative, meaning the winner of the primary will be the heavy favorite in November.

During the debate, all of the candidates said they'd be more effective than Greene, whose penchant for controversy is notorious. Strahan, who is the second-leading fundraiser after Greene in the GOP contest, claimed the anti-Greene movement is alive and well in the 14th Congressional District.

"The individuals who are supporting me aren't supporting me because they know me," Strahan said. "They are supporting me because they know Rep. Greene."

One Georgia voter who voted for former President Donald Trump and Greene the first time told the Washington Examiner Monday morning that Greene ought to practice what she preaches and "show up once in a while in her district."


Greene's team did not respond to an email seeking comment for this story.
