From the Washington Post:
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Tuesday used a Nazi-era comparison in opposing the Biden administration’s push to encourage all Americans to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, calling the individuals leading those efforts “medical brown shirts.”
Members of the paramilitary organization that helped Hitler and the Nazi Party rise to power were known as “brownshirts.”
“Biden pushing a vaccine that is NOT FDA approved shows covid is a political tool used to control people,” Greene tweeted Tuesday afternoon. “People have a choice, they don’t need your medical brown shirts showing up at their door ordering vaccinations. You can’t force people to be part of the human experiment.”

For the record: all three coronavirus vaccines being administered in the U.S. were approved under the Food and Drug Administration’s emergency use authorization last winter.
It was just weeks ago that Greene visited the Holocaust Museum and apologized for earlier remarks comparing face-mask policies to the Nazi practice of labeling Jews with Star of David badges.
I see that trip to the Holocaust museum really did the trick.

I keep thinking that America can't possibly take these dummies seriously.
Then I remember that Donald Trump used to be president.

It *is* FDA approved on an emergency basis, and the Pfizer vaccine is being reviewed for full approval – which their insurance carrier would not permit if they thought there was the slightest chance it was dangerous.
*YOU* are politicizing a pandemic to cover up for incompetence
