Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia continues to baffle audiences with her threadbare-logic rants. On Sunday night, Greene went on fellow conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Infowars show to discuss … Burning Man, the annual community and art festival. Held in a remote area of northwestern Nevada, the festival was hit with “2 to 3 months’ worth of rain” in one 24-hour period, leaving upward of 70,000 people stuck in the muddy, flooded desert.
Greene used this weather event to workshop her theory that the people peddling "Marxism" (whom seem to be defined as anyone not supporting former President Donald Trump) have moved on from Black Lives Matter and into promoting what she calls “this climate change crisis.” So far, so good. She asks if she can connect this disparate thought to Burning Man, then says:
There’s 73,000, 75,000 people in 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 all of it, it's the root of all evil, and it's going to destroy the earth and they’re feeling the panic.
These brainwashed partygoers, she claims, will head back to civilization where they will help to push the climate-change agenda. Who are these brainwashers? How’d they get there? Greene elides all those pesky details and goes on to blame Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others. Former senior executive at NBCUniversal Mike Sington posted a video to X, the site formerly known as Twitter, showing what Greene considers a big idea.
The reactions to this bit of business are the best medicine.

The far-right justices on Wisconsin's Supreme Court just can't handle the fact that liberals now have the majority for the first time in 15 years, so they're in the throes of an ongoing meltdown—and their tears are delicious. On this week's episode of "The Downballot," co-hosts David Nir and David Beard drink up all the schadenfreude they can handle as they puncture conservative claims that their progressive colleagues are "partisan hacks" (try looking in the mirror) or are breaking the law (try reading the state constitution). Elections do indeed have consequences!
