IN a newly unearthed social media post, Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene peddled a conspiracy theory that wild fires in California were caused by a Jewish-controlled space laser.
The latest post, one of several where Greene blatantly backs bizarre conspiracy theories, says that 2018 wildfires were connected to the Rothschild family and former California Gov Jerry Brown.

Media Matters resurfaced the now-deleted Facebook post, where Georgia Rep Greene said there are “too many coincidences to ignore” regarding the cause of the deadly fires.
She then went on a rant trying to connect Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E), which did spark the blaze that killed 85 people due to faulty equipment, with the Rothschilds, who have long been featured in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
She went on to implicate Gov Brown, California Sen Dianne Feinstein and her husband Richard Blum, and to bizarrely suggest that a company that worked with PG&E, Solaren, had placed lasers in space that were capable of setting the fires.
The congresswomen went on to suggest that, perhaps, those she implicated were all working together to clear space on the land for a $77billion high speed rail project.
“Then oddly there are these people who have said they saw what looked like lasers or blue beams of light causing the fires, and pictures and videos,” Greene wrote.

“I don’t know anything about that but I do find it really curious PG&E’s partnership with Solaren on space solar generators starting in 2009.”
A series of Greene’s pro-conspiracy posts have been unearthed in recent weeks, including a video of her chasing down Parkland high school shooting survivor, David Hogg, to harass him over his gun law stance.
In the video, Greene appears to be following Hogg, who was 18 at the time, and accusing him of “attacking our second amendment rights” by “using kids.”
She has also supported theories that the Parkland shooting, as well as mass shootings in Sandy Hook and Las Vegas were “staged.”
Greene, 46, originally posted the 2.47-minute video to her YouTube account in January 2020 when she explained that she had run into Hogg twice as he lobbied for gun law reform the previous March.
After the video began making the rounds online again, Democratic Rep Jimmy Gomez said that he would move to expel Greene from the House due to her “repeated endorsements of sedition, domestic terrorism and political violence.”
Gomez pointed out that Greene also liked social media posts that encouraged political violence against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former President Barack Obama.
She’s also known to support the bizarre QAnon conspiracy theory, though she has tried to publicly distance herself from Q supporters since getting elected last year.
QAnon is an unfounded theory that claims Donald Trump was fighting a “deep state” of political, entertainment and other media elites who were involved in a global child abuse network.

The theory began circulating on 4chan around October 2017.
A 4chan user, who claimed to have had top secret security clearance, amplified the theory and signed off their posts simply as “Q,” hence the name QAnon.
Q claims to be directly involved in a secret Trump-led investigation of the global pedophile network.
