Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene has revealed she has not had the shot and slammed ‘vaccine Nazis’ for ‘ruining our country’ – months after apologizing for comparing mask mandates to the Holocaust.

‘They’re ruining our country, these vaccine Nazis,’ Greene told Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast.

‘I’m sorry. I know I’m using the word Nazi and everybody gets mad when I say it, but that’s exactly what they are,’ the 47-year-old added.

Greene, who has been cited by the House sergeant-at-arms on at least 20 occasions for refusing to wear a face covering, also told Bannon she has not been vaccinated against Covid-19.

‘They’re ruining our country, these vaccine Nazis,’ Greene told Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast on Tuesday

Asked on Tuesday by Bannon whether the vaccine mandates showed 'the fascism of the elites,' she did not shrink from Third Reich comparisons 'They are the fascists. They have called us fascists and have called us Nazis for like five years now, and I'm fed up with it, because that's exactly who they are,' Greene said. 'They are the Nazis!'

‘You want to know something, Steve? I’m not vaccinated. I’m not vaccinated, and I’m not getting the vaccine because I’m an American. I can choose what I want to do with my body. I have the freedom to decide if I want to get a vaccine or not get a vaccine. I do not care who tells me to get one,’ she said, describing her fury that federal employees faced losing their jobs over refusing the jab.

‘I am a member of Congress, and guess what, no one is firing me for not being vaccinated, but all of these amazing first responders … are being fired,’ she said. ‘I am so done with it.’

In May, Greene compared vaccine passports and mask mandates to how Jewish people were forced to wear the Star of David by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

The comments drew condemnation from both sides of aisle, including the Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy who called them ‘appalling.’

A month later Greene made a rare apology after visiting the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC.

‘There is no comparison to the Holocaust,’ she said. ‘And there are words that I have said in remarks that I’ve made that I know are offensive, and for that, I want to apologize.’

Prior to the podcast Greene had refused to answer reporters who asked her about her vaccination status, telling them it is a ‘violation of my HIPAA rights.’

It’s not the first time since her apology in June that she has returned to Nazi analogies.

In July, she tweeted that people she be able to choose if they have the jab and did not need ‘medical brown shirts’ banging on their doors.

The brownshirts, officially known as the Sturmabteilung (SA), were a paramailitary wing of the Nazi party which played a significant role in Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in the 1920s and 1930s.

They were deployed to violently disrupt opposition rallies and to intimidate Jewish business owners, infamously on Kristallnacht (‘Night of Broken Glass’).
