It’s hard to decide exactly which member of the freshman GOP house class is the most ridiculous and clueless.
Is it Lauren Boebert of Colorado, who has called for the church to decide what the government does? Or would the dubious honor go Georgia’s Marjorie Taylor Greene, who said Jewish space lasers were the cause of wildfires in California?
Based on what Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) said recently at a school board meeting, Boebert and Greene have some serious competition when it comes to spewing bullshit and conspiracy theories.
According to Cawthorn, a hospital in North Carolina recently reported a 255% spike in suicide deaths among children during the COVID pandemic. Passing mask mandates could lead even more children to try and take their own lives:
However, Congressman Cawthorn got several major facts incorrect, according to WRAL reporter Paul Specht:
Republicans know they don’t have the facts or science on their side, so they just make shit up and pretend it’s true. And many of their voters believe every word of what they say! It’s cultish behavior and it’s killing people.
