Jews in Space

Jonathan Chait notes that the nation’s highest-profile Republican representative

suggested in a Facebook post that [the Camp fire] in California [was] not natural. Forests don’t just catch fire, you know. Rather, the blazes had been started by PG&E, in conjunction with the Rothschilds, using a space laser, in order to clear room for a high-speed rail project.

… The Rothschild family has featured heavily in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories since at least the 19th century. Anti-Semites have generally updated the theory by replacing the Rothschilds with George Soros, a more contemporary and plausible-seeming mastermind for a global conspiracy to spread left-wing ideology. [Marjorie Taylor] Greene’s version has instead updated the theory by giving the Rothschilds possession of a secret, powerful space laser.

Now, you might wonder why, if an international cabal of Jewish bankers wanted to finance a rail project, they would go about it by using their space lasers to set a catastrophic blaze. Aren’t there easier ways to get your rail stations approved by the state legislature? If you can pull off a massive conspiracy like that and keep it quiet, and you have a space laser you can use to immolate basically any target on Earth, there have to be more direct profit-making opportunities than burning down trees in order to arbitrage the land value for a public-transit contract.

Today’s GOP: The Infanticide Party

“Assigning [the current highest-profile Republican in Congress] to the Education Committee when she has mocked the killing of little children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, when she has mocked the killing of teenagers in high school at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school — what could they be thinking?” [the House Speaker] asked Thursday. “Or is thinking too generous a word for what they might be doing? It’s absolutely appalling, and I think the focus has to be on the Republican leadership of this House of Representatives for the disregard they have for the death of those children.”

Today’s GOP: Maniac who stalks young people appointed to the House Education Cte.

“This is a poisonous person,” [a CNN commentator] said. “Please, leader [Kevin] McCarthy, please keep her away from children. And yet she’s been rewarded with a committee post to the House Education and Labor Committee? How? How can this be happening?”

CNN’s David Chalian slammed Republican leadership for trying to ignore the controversies surrounding Greene…

“There’s a moral bankruptcy going on right now inside the Republican Party that is — for anyone who has watched, observed, reported on the Republican Party for the last few days — it’s becoming unrecognizable,” he said. “There’s always been a fringe and now it’s just become the actual mainstream of the party.”

I’m confused. Last year, when asked about crowds shouting “Lock her up” with Trump at his rallies, Lara Trump said it’s all in fun. A Trump rally is a “fun, light atmosphere.” Everyone was just “having fun at a Trump rally.”

So when the highest profile Republican in the house tweets LOCK HER UP after Hillary Clinton calls her a menace to America, she’s just having fun?

New Up and Coming Republican Legislator is “One to Watch”!

Republican leadership says: “Welcome!”

‘Kevin McCarthy to have “conversation” with Marjorie Taylor Greene over support for killing Dems’

LOLOLOLOL

Class Act

Biden’s Press Secretary refuses to talk about Greene “in this briefing room.” Democrats make clear that she is a desecration. Decent people look the other way.

If you’re a Republican, and you’re feeling a bit daunted by recent events, just remember: Yours is the party that just put Marjorie Taylor Greene on an Education Committee.

And hold your head high!

Well it ain’t a depravity clause (see post below) but it’ll do.

Good on you, Virginia Senate. America’s collective effort to remove truly dangerous nuts from the body politic proceeds apace. In a show of bipartisanship, Virginia successfully chased down Chase.

The rare censure resolution was entered by Sen. John Bell (D-Loudoun) but also received support from Republicans. It passed 24-9…

She’s been stripped of all committee assignments. Total shunning.

However, she remains in the Senate.

**********************

Says she’s running for governor.

If Virginians don’t elect her, she’ll declare martial law.

Why isn’t there a depravity clause? I mean the kind of thing that would have kept Caligula from the throne, for instance…

… I mean… Why isn’t there something in our founding documents that says that if you’re Marjorie Taylor Greene you can’t go out of the house, let alone assume political office? This graduate of the University of Georgia (Anything to say about that, UG?), with her glee over thoughts of murdering much of America’s political class, her obscene conspiracy theories, her…

Ugh. So much more to say about this degenerate. I can’t bear it, so I won’t. Do your own reading.

But let me just say: Shame on us for somehow having produced Marjorie Taylor Greene. I’m going for collective guilt on this one. American scum I get; all countries have scum. That this scum was allowed to rise to national political office is on all of us. We need to do some serious reflection/repentance.

Update: Thank God for small favors. The country has finally, today, issued a domestic terror warning. This way, next time, survivors of the Parkland massacre can see her coming.

The Acting Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin due to a heightened threat environment across the United States, which DHS believes will persist in the weeks following the successful Presidential Inauguration. Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.
