Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene issued her most bizarre conspiracy theory yet, warning her supporters in a video from her official podcast that the government is planning to monitor their eating habits and “zap” them to make them eat meat that's been grown in a "peach tree dish."
Greene appeared to refer to a "petri dish," the name for a shallow transparent lidded dish that biologists use to culture different types of cells, including bacteria and molds.
Regardless, she showed no signs of correcting her error as she cautioned her followers "to accept the fact that the government totally wants to provide surveillance on every part of your life."
You can hear what Greene said in the video below.
“You have to accept the fact that the government totally wants to provide surveillance on every part of your life."
“They want to know when you’re eating. They want to know if you’re eating a cheeseburger, which is very bad because Bill Gates wants you to eat his fake meat that grows in a peach tree dish.”
“You’ll probably get a little zap inside your body and that’s saying ‘No, no. Don’t eat a real cheeseburger, you need to eat the fake burger, the fake meat, from Bill Gates."
“They probably also want to know when you go to the bathroom and if your bowel movements are on time or consistent. I mean what else do these people want to know?”
Video of Greene's remarks went viral after it was shared by Patriot Takes, a prominent Twitter account dedicated to exposing right-wing extremism.
Her statements left many dumbfounded.
Her critics suggested she is exhibiting signs of paranoia utterly divorced from reality.
Greene is known for making outlandish claims on her podcast and during interviews.
Earlier this month, she was widely mocked after she claimed that women choose to get abortions because Satan himself "whispers" that men will marry them if they do.
Greene said that Satan whispers "softly and gently, into your ears and into your soul" and that he "promises you all these dreams that you have in your heart, and that's how Satan sells us sin and that’s how he sells abortion."
