This is a real headline. Imagine being this detached from reality.

You might want to do a few eye stretches before reading this, cuz them orbs about to roll.

This installment of unhinged hysterics comes to us from NBC News.

WASHINGTON — After last week's deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump, members of Congress are expressing something once unthinkable: that some of their own colleagues may be endangering their lives. Not in a rhetorical sense, but in a direct and immediate way.

Yes, some Democrats in congress are genuinely worried that their conservative colleagues are going to ACTUALLY MURDER THEM.

Here's Rep. Don Beyer weeping openly,

"There's the overall sense that maybe if some of them have guns — and likely the ones who are more into conspiracy theories and QAnon with the pedophilic satanic rings — are we safe from them?"

He went on to say that "there's perhaps actual physical danger from our colleagues."

Now, I don't know how sincere this gentleman from Virginia is—he's a politician after all—but that's such an absolute bonkers thing to think, much less say out loud, to a reporter.

Of course, bastion of level-headedness, AOC was also worried that other members of congress were out to get her.

"There were QAnon and white supremacist sympathizers, and frankly white supremacist members of Congress, in that extraction point who I have felt would disclose my location and would create opportunities to allow me to be hurt, kidnapped, etc."

I love that without the slightest hint of irony, these folks are accusing their colleagues of WANTING TO PERSONALLY MURDER THEM while simultaneously saying the other side are the conspiracy theorists.


These people live on another planet.
