Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ). The group is, according to the document, pushing for “uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and new infrastructure that “befits the progeny of European architecture.”

The so called America first caucus advocate for“the architectural, engineering and aesthetic value that befits the progeny of European architecture, whereby public infrastructure must be utilitarian as well as stunningly, classically beautiful, befitting a world power and source of freedom.”
What do they expect a resurrection of Albert Speer? I take it they’re also not fond of the Latin American architecture that has been in their districts and states for the past few millennium.

Can’t wait for the mead halls to spring up, the Scops to retell the Beowulf stories, plans for rape, plunder, and pillage of the weaker, and government by a bunch of drunk warriors. Sounds like Marjorie and her funny friends have found a spiritual home.
