Marjorie Taylor Greene says she isn't antisemitic because Jesus was 'a Jewish carpenter'

• Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene defended herself against antisemitism allegations in her new book.
• She claimed that her controversial Jewish space laser comments were "sarcastic."
• The Christian nationalist congresswoman noted that her "Savior," Jesus, was a Jewish carpenter.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene addressed her controversial comments about Jewish space lasers and said that she is not antisemitic because her "Savior," Jesus, was a Jewish carpenter.

The Georgia congresswoman has dedicated a chapter of her upcoming memoir "MTG" to addressing the antisemitism allegations, per The Forward, which received an advanced copy of the book.

Greene made a widely ridiculed claim in 2018 that a Jewish-financed space laser had caused the worst wildfires in California's history.

If it were "sarcasm," and not antisemitic tomes, then why insert "Jewish"?

Maybe I'm obtuse (unlike MTG), but I just can't find the necessary element irony that's inherent in her alleged sarcasm. Where is it?

They will argue he was the first Christian.

I think she under estimated how many anti-Semites vote for her and want nothing but scorn for those who are not.

The carpenter was the husband of his mother, the man she was unfaithful to.
