Marjorie Taylor Greene:  Gazpacho Police

By Shlomo Maital   

      You could not make this up if you tried.

       NBC News reports:   Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., who has become known for her love of conspiracy theories and angry outbursts at Democratic leaders, apparently meant to accuse House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Gestapo police tactics in an interview Tuesday.

       But it didn’t quite come out that way, and the mistake she made immediately set off a chorus of delighted ridicule from her critics on social media.   Rather than compare Pelosi’s tactics to the Nazi secret police, she instead compared them to a bowl of chilled soup.

       “Now we have Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police spying on members of Congress, spying on the legislative work we do, spying on our staff and spying on American citizens,” Greene said on One America News Network’s “Real America” program.   

       MTG is a ‘far-right conspiracy theorist’  who has served as the U.S. representative for Georgia’s 14th congressional district since 2021 and was re-elected in November 2022. This district in Georgia is one of the most heavily Republican in the nation.  The real contest was in the Republican primaries.  She was strongly supported by Donald Trump.

       Next time you buy tomato soup and cucumbers, be sure to look over your shoulder.  MTG may be there, with a warrant.  You are under arrest for…uh, Gespacho? Geshtako? Gustavo? Gesundheit? Gestalt? Gashpachtal? I can’t spell it, she admits; but you’re under arrest anyway.

         Voters of Georgia’s 14th congressional district:  You voted for her.  So, enjoy.  She will be your representative in Congress for many years.  And, lay off the gazpacho.  And chicken soup, which is Jewish (MTG is not fond of us Jews).  And bouillabaisse, which she can’t pronounce.  In fact, lay off soup in general.  Only elitist educated Democrats eat soup. 

       Ignorance is back.  Yeah.
