Congress GOP WTF?!

MTG Claims The Phrase ‘Jewish Space Lasers’ Hurt Her Feelings As A Christian

If you’ve followed the bizarre and often offensive rantings from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), you may recall that she once blamed the wildfires in California on “lasers.”

Back in January of last year, Media Matters reported on Greene’s claim regarding lasers, which she posted on Facebook:

Rep. Greene is a proponent of the Camp Fire laser beam conspiracy theory. She wrote a November 17, 2018, Facebook post — which is no longer available online — in which she said that she was speculating “because there are too many coincidences to ignore” regarding the fire, including that then-California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) wanted to build the high-speed rail project and “oddly there are all these people who have said they saw what looked like lasers or blue beams of light causing the fires.” She also speculated that a vice chairman at “Rothschild Inc, international investment banking firm” was somehow involved, and suggested the fire was caused by a beam from “space solar generators.” 

Greene added: “If they are beaming the suns energy back to Earth, I’m sure they wouldn’t ever miss a transmitter receiving station right??!! I mean mistakes are never made when anything new is invented. What would that look like anyway? A laser beam or light beam coming down to Earth I guess. Could that cause a fire? Hmmm, I don’t know. I hope not! That wouldn’t look so good for PG&E, Rothschild Inc, Solaren or Jerry Brown who sure does seem fond of PG&E.” 

Now, however, Marj wants us to believe that reporting on what she posted has hurt her feelings, so she went and whined to fellow right-wing asshat Mike Huckabee, telling him:

“Terrible attacks, especially about silly things about something called ‘Jewish space lasers.’ That was a term I had never used in my life but someone wrote an article and then they copied and pasted and put it all across the media.

“That really hurt my feelings. Because I’m a Christian and I would never say anything against any group of people, especially Israel. I would never do that.”

Hurt her feelings? Really? Don’t you have to be a living, sentient being to have those?
