LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The 1 October mass shooting in Las Vegas is the topic of a resurfaced video by U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene that is going viral today on social media.

Greene, who has a long history of racist comments and is a supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory, was elected to the House in November after winning the Republican primary in a heavily conservative district.

Sixty people died as a result of the mass shooting during a country music festival in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, 2017. Hundreds of people were also injured. The gunman, Stephen Paddock, killed himself and a motive was never discovered for the horrific attack.


In the video, Greene suggests that the mass shooting was the work of the anti-gun rights lobby.

It is not known exactly when she recorded the video, but she wrote an article about the mass shooting shortly after it happened for the American Truth Seekers website. The website was shut down in 2018, but you can still read the article here.

Regardless, the video has resurfaced on social media, including Twitter and YouTube, and is racking up thousands of views and thousands of comments.

This is not the first time that Greene has suggested that a mass shooting was staged. Two years before she was elected to Congress, she also claimed that the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, was not what it appeared.

On Wednesday morning, the father of a Parkland, Florida, student who was killed during the 2018 school shooting posted a video of Greene harassing Parkland survivor and gun legislation advocate David Hogg outside the Capitol.

Also, CCNN reported on Tuesday that Greene showed support of executing prominent Democrats before she ran for Congress in 2020. The Facebook posts have been called “deeply disturbing” and many people are calling for her removal from Congress.

Additionally, Greene has continued to repeat former President Donald Trump’s claims of mass election fraud. Twitter temporarily suspended her account last week after she posted a clip with false claims.

Greene doesn’t seem to apologize for any of her past statements or videos at this time and has accused CNN and other media of writing “hit pieces." She also continues to display her support of Donald Trump and wants to have President Biden impeached.
