A city in Texas is throwing an LGBT holiday parade, and Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene goes after California Sen. Scott Wiener on Twitter, calling him a "communist groomer."
LGBT Holiday Parade is Coming to the City of Taylor
After not meeting Taylor Area Ministerial Alliance requirements for the holiday parade, the city of Taylor decided it would host their own parade that is inclusive to all.
The Texas ministry’s new requirements stated that entries need to be "consistent with traditional biblical and family values," according to KUT.
"The City of Taylor has worked very hard over the last several years to be inclusive and to be open to diversity," Stacey Osborne, the city's communications director, told KUT. "And we felt that the best way to show that we are keeping that commitment is by having a parade that would be open to everyone in the city and available for everyone to participate."
Last year’s parade, Taylor Pride, an LGBT organization, had a float with drag performers that the organizers did not agree with.

Since her ban has been lifted by the new Twitter CEO Elon Musk, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene immediately began to sling insults at California State Sen. Scott Wiener.
Wiener had been tweeting about the term “groomer” being a derogatory word towards LGBT people and Greene proceeded to tweet that he was a “communist groomer.”
"Hate rhetoric, particularly coming from people in power, directly leads to violence," Wiener said to CBS News.
After the tweet, Wiener said that he was bombarded with tweets calling him a pedophile.
This was only days after the Colorado Springs shooting where the gunman targeted a gay club.
"Being in a place that's very gay, we're kind of reminded that we have to constantly be on alert and we're never really safe," Zachary Olson, a software engineer, told CBS News.
