Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) continues to face backlash for endorsing multiple conspiracy theories and calls for the execution of her now-colleagues on social media before her election.
Greene has previously expressed support for the QAnon conspiracy theory, which hinges on the delusion that former President Donald Trump was sent to expose a network of satanic cannibal pedophiles secretly controlling the United States government.
She's suggested that mass shootings in the United States are coordinated by Democratic lawmakers to weaken public support for the Second Amendment. Greene has also supported a deranged lie that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton murders children and drinks their blood.
Now, yet another conspiracy theory supported by Greene has come to light and this time it has to do with the devastating California wildfires in November 2018 which killed nearly 100 people.
Greene said there were "too many coincidences to ignore," suggesting that California lawmakers coordinated laser beams to strike the terrain and potentially clear the way for a high-speed rail.
The theory has been a component of the broader QAnon conspiracy web and has roots in the longstanding anti-semitic trope that wealthy Jewish people—in Greene's case, the Rothschilds—have deep influence on the machinations of global power.
"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."
Soon, "Jewish space laser" began to trend on Twitter with people mocking Greene's latest resurfaced delusion.
Though the theory is comical in its absurdity, Twitter users reminded their followers of the underlying anti-semitism predicating it.
Congressman Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) has introduced a resolution to expel Greene from Congress.
