Five Ways I Use My Jewish Space Laser

In a leaked Facebook post, Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) claimed that the 2018 California Camp Fire was caused by a “laser beam or light beam” fired by “Rothschild Inc.” This is pure anti-Semitism; obviously, Jews have better uses for their space lasers, as Jason Adam Katzenstein demonstrates.

1) To slice the refrigerated bagels that I’m too lazy to heat up.

2) To hastily light candles in advance of the Zoom with my parents where I prove to them that I haven’t lost the chanukiah they gave me.

3) We had one at my bris.

4) To play laser tag at the secret Jewish meetings that Marjorie Taylor Greene is on to us about so I mean no these do not exist.
