MTG Claims 75,000 Stranded Burning Man Attendees Were 'Brainwashed' In Cringey Clip

After 75,000 Burning Man attendees were stranded in the Nevada desert after mass flooding, Marjorie Taylor Greene told Alex Jones they were being 'brainwashed' to blame it on climate change.

Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene was criticized after she claimed that 75,000 Burning Man attendees who were stranded in the Nevada Desert after mass flooding were being "brainwashed" to blame the disaster on climate change.

Stranded festivalgoers at the annual Burning Man festival in Nevada's Black Rock Desert faced extreme weather conditions this year, including heavy rainfall and flooding, resulting in thousands of attendees being stuck due to impassable muddy roads.

Greene, who appeared on Infowars alongside noted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, implied that the flooding might be an act of God against the attendees. The claim was endorsed by Jones, who made reference to a “mock sacrifice," the symbolic burning of a large wooden effigy, referred to as "The Man" by attendees.

You can hear what Greene said in the video below.

Greene said:

“Well, you know, God has a way of making sure everyone knows who God is."
“There’s 73-75,000 in the Nevada desert right now at this Burning Man. They’re locked in. They’re not allowed to leave and they’re basically probably being brainwashed that climate change is the cause of it and it’s going to destroy the Earth."
"And they’re, they're feeling the panic. So, what’s going to happen, Alex?”

Greene opined that once the attendees returned home they would have "stories to tell" about climate change, which she claimed is "the Left's new lie they’re going to put on the American people and try to get everyone behind [it]...this is what they’re brainwashing people to believe."

Many have mocked and criticized Greene for her remarks.

Greene is a noted climate denier who has openly pushed back against the scientific consensus that human beings are responsible for anthropogenic climate change.

Earlier this year, she was mocked after she made absurd statements about climate change mitigation programs during a session in Congress, particularly her claim that people during the Ice Age—which ended about 11,000 years ago—didn't pay taxes to help mitigate climate change.

Greene further attacked the federal government's climate policies, saying there was no reason to allow the country's borders to open up and let people in while also funding foreign countries to combat climate change.

She suggested billions or even trillions of dollars were being spent simply because some countries "don't like the climate change."
