Claytoonz: Marjorie Taylor Greene's fake meat grown in a 'peach tree dish'
Sometimes when I create a post on Facebook, the algorithms or whatever will read the hashtags, and if it’s something that can be associated with charity, Facebook will ask me if I want to create a fundraiser. So if you hashtag a hurricane, COVID, women’s rights, Black Lives Matter, etc, it will ask if you want to use your post to raise money. What really puzzles me today is what in the hell in today’s cartoon does Facebook believe needs a fundraiser? I got a Facebook request to create a fundraiser while I was creating this post. Can anyone take a guess as to why? Guessing is all I have.
Does Facebook believe we need to raise money for people who’ve been zapped while eating a cheeseburger? That’s one of Marjorie Taylor Greene’s claims. She believes the government is spying on people eating cheeseburgers and when it catches those savage burger eaters, they will feel a zap inside their bodies inflicted by the government. Maybe the zappy thingamajigs were put in there by the vaccine microchips.
Maybe Facebook believes we should have a fundraiser to defeat the evil plague of Jewish space lasers. Marjorie Taylor Greene blamed them for starting California wildfires, which wouldn’t be a problem at all if we just took Trump’s advice and rake our forests like they do in Finland.
Maybe Facebook believes there should be a fundraiser for fake meat research in peach tree dishes. What’s a peach tree dish? It’s a new term from MTG. Is it anything like a petri dish? Maybe they call petri dishes “peach tree dishes” in Georgia, the peach tree state…or are they now the petri dish state?
Perhaps Facebook thinks Bill Gates isn’t rich enough and there should be a fundraiser to assist his fake meat research where fake meat is grown in a peach tree dish.
Facebook might want a fundraiser in the fight against being spied on by Nancy Pelosi’s Gazpacho Police. Perhaps there should be fundraisers against all chilled soups.
One good cause would be fundraising to reattach a child’s face after it was ripped off by Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin in a sexual assault. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Qanon swear that’s a thing and there’s a video no one has ever seen that proves it. It’s called “Frazzledrip.” Why is it called “frazzledrip?” I don’t know because I stopped reading at the point of Hillary and Huma wearing the poor child’s face as a mask.
Maybe the fundraiser is to save Liz Cheney’s seat in Congress so it doesn’t go to a Trump cultist. Trump was in Wyoming over the weekend campaigning for a Republican to defeat Liz Cheney in Wyoming’s Republican primary in August.
Liz Cheney did something must worse than push conspiracy theories about Bill Gates growing fake meat in peach tree dishes, Nancy Pelosi’s Gazpacho Police, Jewish space lasers, or frazzledrip. What Liz Cheney did that’s inexcusable for Trump is she chose democracy over the cult. She refused the orange Kool-Aid. She voted to impeach Trump for his insurrection, which Trump refuses to acknowledge. She joined the January 6 Committee investigating the insurrection, for which all those arrested so far have been identified as “political prisoners” by Trump.
A representative like Marjorie Taylor Greene pushing lies, racism, and anti-semitic conspiracy theories doesn’t concern Trump. They don’t even care that she tweeted a death threat to the speaker of the House or stalked colleagues and survivors of school shootings. He’ll probably campaign for her. But demanding accountability is blasphemy to the Trump cult. The most important position for Republicans today isn’t on taxes, Russia, Ukraine, Abortion, or even guns. It’s loyalty to Trump.
If a Republican is loyal and subservient to the Trump cult and pushes the election lie that Trump won, then they will receive support to be in Congress, just so long as they don’t point out their cocaine orgies as Matt Gaetz did. That’s not fake meat, baby.
There will always be room in the Republican Party for Trump sycophants…even if their entire brain can fit inside a peach tree dish.
Music Note: I listened to The Ting Tings, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Blondie while drawing today’s cartoon.
