The Greene-ing of Red State America

“Did you hear about them Jewish Space Lasers? Is that the name of a rock ‘n’ roll band? If it ain’t, it should be.”

Swamp Rabbit was reading about Marjorie Taylor Greene, the QAnon wacko who also happens to be a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and a member in good standing of the Republican Party.

“My son has a band,” I told him. “I’ll text him but he probably won’t go for that name. He’s a goy, you know.”

Last week House Democrats used their slim majority to boot Greene from the Education and Labor Committee and the Budget Committee. This was in reaction to her long history of using social media and other platforms to spread Trumpian lies on subjects as diverse as election results, school shootings and forest fires (Jewish space lasers started them, she wrote in 2018).

“But this here’s a free speech issue, ain’t it?” Swamp Rabbit asked.

“No,” I replied. “Its a ‘shouting fire in a crowded theater’ issue. Its about trying to smack down a troll who abuses free speech laws so she can generate further chaos in a part of the population that has already lost its collective mind.”

“It don’t seem fair to single her out,” he said. “What about Cruz and Hawley and Biggs and Brooks and Johnson and Gosar and Goetz and Boebert and McCarthy and so on? What do you do about all the peeps who support them 147 Republicans in the House who voted to throw out the 2020 election results even though they knew Trump lost fair and square?”

I hate when Swamp Rabbit asks questions I can’t answer.
